The food was amazing! We had the shrimp scampi, mussels and two bowls of soup. The shrimp and the mussels were exquisite! Indulge in a cocktail because they are delicious and quite creative. We will definitely return!

We really enjoyed this place. The food was very tasty. The beef Wellington and filet small plates were a good combination for the beef lovers out there. The BBQ Korean chicken and sushi rolls were also good. I would definitely eat here again. No complaints.

What an assume place! The food is the best in town. Chef Joel when not busy is out talking to his patrons. If your in town it’s the place to go for dinner and drinks.

We were driving through and thought we'd stop here and venture out in the downtown of South Haven, MI. Why not? We were debating this place (Taste) with another restaurant down the block, and we settled on Taste. Not knowing what the small plate concept...More

There are lots of GF options and I disagree with the comment about the Phoenix Street Cafe. Taste has a much better quality of food choices and you can get dishes custom to allergy needs.
