Went to taste and was not blown away. I had heard really great things but it was all very average to me. There was nothing I had to go back and have. The service was beyond slow and there were only 7 tables in the place. Maybe ill give it another shot next summer but before then. Needs some major work!

We visited on a Saturday night and the place was packed but we got a table for two on the dais. The interior layout hasn't changed much from the days when this was the Harbor Bistro but the menu sure has. New owners are putting out a variety of small plates which we sampled: smoked salmon excellent, tomato bisque soup great, blackened chicken very good as were the filet bites. Pork floutas a bit bland but overall sauces very tasty.

But the place needs acoustics. The din was so great we couldn't converse across our small table. The group of eight next to us was shouting back and forth. We finished eating and left quickly.

We'll try Taste again after Labor Day when the summer crowd has left town.

We looked at the menu in the window, and knew we had to try Taste. The food lives up to the the vision! Martinis were different, strong, and made very well. So many different small plates to choose from, we considered going back for lunch the next day. Coming from Chicago, the food was better than many small plate restaurants in Chicago...! We wished the restaurant was closer to home so we could come back more often. Definitely a must visit for a nice meal!!

Stopped there for dinner Tuesday night. Seated right away. Really wasn't expecting too much. So many choices on the menu, I doubted that they would be able to do so much well. I was wrong. The service was excellent. Two of us split 4 plates. I was a little hesitant to order sushi, but it was very good. Extremely fresh. The salmon appetizer was also delicious. the gyros meatballs were tasty. Quite an assortment, but everything was good. Martini was perfect, and very reasonably priced. I'd highly recommend. Hope they make it!

We went Monday night in a party of ten and had a wonderful time. We went back on Friday in a party of 5 for lunch to have our favorites again. Especially good: Blue Cheese Honeycomb, Tilapia Tacos, Mozzerella & Tomato, Parmesan Bread and Tuna Sushi.
