My wife and married family members (6) have been a number of times. The food is incredibly good and since it is Tapas style you get to try several dishes. All the dishes have always been fabulous. Sounds like an exaggeration.......it's NOT. Do not pass...More

Went with a large group. Everyone liked their dishes. Sliders were really tasty with pretzel rolls. But they are small and only two per order for $13, which I thought was a bit much. The arugula salad with goat cheese was delicious and reasonably priced....More

I love this place. The food was amazing. My colleague and I shared 3 plates and dessert. Our server recommended a wine that turned out to be a perfect compliment to our meal. The service was friendly and fast.

Everything we had was delicious- skewers-sliders- bruschetta- nachos. So so good. And Wednesday is 1/2 price wine BTG. A necessity for any girls night! This is definitely a new favorite.

Taste use to be my go to neighborhood spot. I think they have lost their way. We were their last seating of the night and told no problem. They clearly didn't want us there. Terrible service. Impatient staff. Tossing their keys on the counter loudly...More

A "just inside the beltline" neighborhood establishment where every morsel achieves that elusive, cuisine-defining balance of sweet, salty, and sour - even dessert. Our serving style is 'morsels' which are portions between appetizers and entrees. We rotate new seasonal selections to our menu, but keep our favorites available all the time. Check out our feature daily veg dish on our chalkboard or as a server for details. Our wine is carefully selected to pair appropriately with each morsel dish. At Taste, you'll also have access to our owner's private wine reserve. Our craft beer selection is like going to your favorite bottle shop and yes, we have rotating drafts! Come see us tonight. Taste is part of a locally owned and operated restaurant group: JMR Kitchens.
