The places was... Ok. It's a nice environment but the prices are TOO high for what they offer. The shrimp and grit was good but not worth the price

We arrived to this restaurant by surprise. We were looking for something correct in the area we were spending the night after a day at the Air Museum. Excellent food, a band was playing. Nice style.

We stopped here because of the great Trip Advisor Reviews and we were not disappointed. We arrived on a Wednesday night at 6pm. There was a group at the bar, but it was empty at the time. I will have to say by the time we left, the place was filling up. Taylor is an excellent hostess/server and made sure... More

From the friendliness of our server, Taylor, to our dinner, we were very pleased. Jumbo butterflied,fried shrimp with crawfish and Cajun cream sauce over just right grits, accompanied with collard greens made this a memorable meal while in Dayton. Glad we have broke away from the usual chain restaurants and can enjoy such a fine dinner restaurant.

We travel to Dayton a few times a year to visit family. On this trip, we decided to check out Taste. We planned to try last year but never made it to Dayton for our annual trip. Taste was definitely worth the wait. We called upon arrival to our hotel to make a reservation. They were able to accommodate us... More

I first tried Taste during one of last year's restaurant weeks, and I was favorably impressed--they served me a couple of 3-rib lamb chops that sang! My wife, however, wasn't as impressed as I, so I decided to return when I had a dinner-on-our-own night. Didn't want to do a Tripadvisor review based only on restaurant week--the features were not...

My wife and I have been to this restaurant many times and have always enjoyed it. We went there to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary. Food was great; staff were friendly; pleasant atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We definitely will return.

We have been to Taste twice and both times (both on Groupons) were very enjoyable experiences. The menu is quite interesting...that is self-described as: "we specialize in Cajun and Creole cuisine with a touch of Southern flair". It has been a few months since last eating here and in looking over their website, I see that there is a new... More

We have tried Taste several times and nothing is ever good. The first time I ordered tilapia and they served me catfish and would not believe me. I can taste the difference! The next time, I avoided fish and went with steak. It was overcooked. I sent it back. Nothing redeeming.
