Taste was a good local restaurant that is missed but it's loyal following....unfortunately it needed a broader customer base I guess....

Sorry to say this restaurant is no longer in business. They had a great, eclectic menu for lunch. Showed up last week, only to find the sign on the door thanking the customers for 11 years. :-(

Taste is a very nice quiet dinner spot with a small bar area. I have had everything on the menu at least once and have thoroughly enjoyed each one. Outstanding service.

My wife and I had Valentine's Day dinner here. It was probably the 10th time we have eaten there. A wide variety of appetizers and entrees. Good wine list. Service is usually very good.

The food is incredible, though I usually go here for lunch. The outside area is open when it's warm and they allow cigar smoking outside which I love. The drinks are pretty awesome too. Just prepared to spend a little money.

Jason is the chef and he has a wonderful talent for combining flavors using the freshest incredients. The atmosphere is pleasant and the staff is very helpful. Some of our favorite dishes include the chop salad, the scallops, lamb with bucatini (sp?) pasta, and more.
