We walked in the front door and stood for five minutes. Nobody seated us, so we assumed that we were to seat ourselves, which we did. Eventually the owner came barreling in from the back and excoriated us for sitting down "when she might have had reservations!" She then lectured us that we should have come in the back (well,...

Returned here for dinner on Valentines day after having lunch and brunch on two separate days before. It is best to make reservations in advance as it is a small room with a bar and smaller rooms off the back. Food is homemade and the specials change daily. Moderately priced but well worth it.

Every time I go to this place, I enjoy the food immensely: Imaginatively prepared with fresh, high-quality ingredients, fairly priced. We've had their baked feta appetizer, wedge salad with fantastic blue cheese dressing, haddock puttanesca, Greek shrimp, smoked ribs, coquille st. jacques. Depending on the server, the service can be very good to just fair. The other night, when the... More

Me and my wife had lunch there yesterday and both of us enjoyed what we got very much. I got a seafood chowder and a scallop roll, My wife got a turkey club which the turkey was real. Both meals were very enjoyable we will be back.

Tried it today for first time and was delighted. Great drinks and delicious food, cute little place. Enjoyed the penne pasta with shrimp and asparagus in a cream sauce. Delicious. My drink was Victoria Secret Coconut rum and pineapple juice, delicious. We will return.

We have gone several times over the past couple of years and have experienced good and bad. The last time will be the last as it was bad heavily salted food and bad bar service. Its a shame because the place had real promise.

We had an excellent dinner at Tastebuds! I had the bouillabaisse that had plenty of littlenecks, scallops, shrimp, lobster and fish. My wife had the petite fillet that was very tender and tasty.

Tastey brunch specials. No alcohol until 10:30 on sundays. Very busy with the church crowd. Service was excellent, but limited parking.

Because we have enjoyed eating at Tastebuds many times in the past, we decided to try their corned beef and cabbage special for St. Patrick's Day. Wow! What a pleasant surprise. The corned beef was exceptionally tender without falling apart and the potatoes, carrots and cabbage were all cooked to perfection (not an easy task it seems for many restaurants).... More

The food is delicious. The atmosphere is cozy. They service is inconsistent. The Cocquille St. Jacques scallop dish is delicious. I also enjoyed the vanilla field greens salad. I have had the chicken picatta and it is good, too. Unfortunately, it took a long time for our waiter to appear. Then we had to beg for water several times before... More
