A bit trying on your first visit with more sandwich combos than one can imagine. Everything is super fresh, very high quality ingredients, and a massive selection. Loved the turkey with roasted peppers. Fresh pasta salads on the fridge are awesome as well. Not to be missed.

Taste is tasty but noisy. It's a safe bet for lunch, but it's so noisy it's impossible (well nearly so) to hear your name called. The staff were yelling out names for people to pick up their selections after ordering, but still they had to shout it out 2-3 times. They do have some nice selections and they go way... More

While visiting Chesapeake and staying in a Crossways Blvd area hotel, we stopped in here for lunch. We were instantly impressed with the looks - love how they had samples of various cheeses and popcorns out for trial. Half of the place is a gourmet food store with lots of nice, local VA wines and the other half was dining... More

Love the salads, Brunswick Stew, and sandwiches. Nice patio when the weather is good. Mustard vinaigrette (when in season) is my favorite dressing. Enjoying the Golden Raisin vinaigrette for the Fall. A favorite local business.

Fresh food, fair prices, lots of good choices, we all 4 enjoyed our lunch. The store layout was very clean, lots of food and drink that can be purchased beyond lunch (like an Italian deli: wine, beer, snacks), A fav of our son and d-i-l.

A trip to the beach is not complete without a stop at Taste! Fresh sandwiches, great snacks, maybe a gift or two. There are several location in Hampton Roads and we are anxiously awaiting the Richmond hometown one to debut in 2017. I have only had lunch sandwiches and salads (and picked up the special sauce to take home) but... More

Taste is great for everyone. I am a vegetarian and they have a whole vegetarian menu. This is a great place, but the best Taste in is Hilltop.

The food here is very fresh and seasonal. I was able to get one of the seasonal sandwiches a few days before the menu changed for the fall. I will be back again. My colleagues also were very pleased with their selections.

We have been to taste on a few occasions and it has been good enough to come back. Well I this last trip I ordered the special catfish sandwich and it was absolutely terrible. The fish was cooked beyond recognition along with being burnt. I should have returned it after the first bite but I decided to give it a... More

My visiting the area each summer, I pass by a Taste location and tell myself I need to eat there. This year I finally did. He food is very good, though slightly pricy. It serves locally harvested and mostly organic foods, prepared well. Lunch crowd was big - get there early. And if you get the meal (aka box -... More
