You will not be disappointed.

This is a family run restaurant you will see from grandpa to the grandchild working
here. No matter what dish you choose, you will need to order extra bread so you
can lick the plate clean.
The wonderful wife and husband team will take good care of you, Your meal
is prepared when you order it. Not ahead of time It is all good ENJOY

We had dinner tonight at Taste Bistro. Family owned and operated. Outstanding menu, service, and preparations. We had lamb filets and sand dabs. Both were great! The French flavor owned our appetites.

The staff, all family, the setting , adorable, quaint and off the beaten path. Not a tourist trap and a locals favorite. We dine here every time we are in town. The parchment wrapped Salmon is a melt in your mouth experience! Desserts are supreme! Wine list is fabulous! 5 stars all the way around!

This Bistro is operated by a husband and wife team. He, the chef, is often the one to take an order and to answer questions. He is very dedicated to his cooking and offers an eclectic menu. The marinated Rabbit was excellent. Tasty appetizers, delicious homemade soups, and a great array of entrees. The dessert menu will make your mouth water well before dinner even begins.

I have been coming to Taste for 4 years now. I only make it from New Mexico to Pacific Grove once a year, but never miss the opportunity to enjoy my friends and food.

First visit here and completely satisfied, a restaurant where they know how to cook fish. We had halibut cooked with a light crust and salmon with vegetables cooked in parchment.
Husband and wife team who work hard to take care of their customers.
We will return.
