    Nice menu, well executed. A little on the heavy side. Maybe a grilled fish entree or two? Love the diverse group of patrons, the pianist and the decor. The kind of place that makes me happy to be back it and about, post Covid.

    Everything was wonderful and the special dessert for the birthday person was much appreciated. Julie, our waitress, was a dear. Since it was a Tuesday evening, there were not many people there at 6:00 and the noise level was low. Than you for a special evening.

    Service was a little slow. Two of our party had salads while the other two had nothing to eat for close to 30 minutes before the entrees were served. There should be a bread or roll service. The entrees- 3 of us choose the Crab stuffed Salmon and one the lamb chops were excellent and very good sized servings. I liked the ability to substitute the vegetables with our meals.

    Fiancé and I went for dinner. Waitress did not introduce herself or tell us about the night’s specials. Simply took our drink order. My maple Manhattan was very good.Her lemon drop martini was incredibly sour. Waitress then asks if we were ready to order, again no idea what the specials were until I overheard the other waitress talking to another nearby table. The arancini app was very good, although very small (two rice balls on a plate). I ordered the BBQ ribs for dinner, which were good, she ordered the Caesar side salad which was good, roast chicken breast which was very very dry. We didn’t see our waitress again until 10-15 minutes after we got our food. I was halfway done with my ribs, she was barely halfway, maybe less than that, through her chicken (there wasn’t much on the plate to begin with), green beans (which were barely touched because, had our waitress come to check on us, we would have asked for pepper) and rice. We told the waitress how we felt about the meal and she took the food away and apologized. The other waitress came over to the table next to us and started apologizing for the meal until we had to flag her over to let her know it was us who had the bad meal, which she reduced the $30 chicken meal price by 50%. So after having a good Manhattan, a very sour lemon drop, a small appetizer, very good BBQ ribs (which were fall off the bone tender), and dry overcooked chicken, we could not stay for dessert. Honestly, I saw the cheesecake served to the table next to us and based on the small size of it, I felt we made a wise decision. It was a nearly $100 night that included two drinks, a small appetizer, side salad, dry chicken that was half-off and bbq ribs. This was not a very good experience and I would not recommend for a friend.

    The annual Wine burger night was terrific. Two of us had been to previous year’s events, and one was here for the first time. Marlyna (sp?) took great care of us, and I bought two bottles of the Zinfandel. Do this more than once a year!

    Service was extremely poor. We waited awhile for food, drinks and to even be seen. I’m ok with waiting for our food if someone checks on us but it was 20 minutes before we were greeted by our server and 30 minutes before we even had drinks.

    Went for Cleveland Restaurant Week and was treated unfairly in which some patrons were able to have the Cleveland Restaurant Week special and many others were not "because they don't participate in CRW on the weekends".

    We picked this location because it was advertised on Cleveland’s restaurant week. We made the reservation and then called to confirm the day prior that the restaurant week menu would be available. We were told yes on the phone and then in person were told that the restaurant week specials did not apply to weekends which contradicted what we had confirmed the day prior. Overall I was disappointed with the experience and service provided.

    We visited with our friends during Cleveland restaurant week to use the restaurant special menu. Taste was one of the restaurants with most different choices in the special restaurant week menu. We ordered different choices from the menu, and all of them were good. Food was outstanding, service was perfect. We had a very nice table in the restaurant front corner, so it was cozy and not noisy.

    We don’t venture out much especially since COVID struck; but it was our anniversary and we thought we’d do something special to celebrate. We hadn’t been to Taste in more than 10 years so we thought we’d treat ourselves by going there for dinner and it was magnificent. The server was responsive and delightful, and the food was amazing. We went outside our food comfort zones and orderedI the paella and the duck. The dishes were incredibly “Tasty” and plentiful. We were stuffed after the meal, but there was enough food to bring home leftovers. We also scored a free dessert because it was our anniversary and the crème brûlée was outstanding. This was a wonderful five-star dining experience, a little cramped for space and pricey, but well worth it. We’ve already begun to recommend Taste to our friends and rest assured we’ll be back!

    Ordered Maple Manhattans. Server asked “on the rocks or straight up?” We got one each way. Inquired when the price on the check didn’t match the menu. Ended In a shouting match with the manager who said the “on the rocks” $1 extra was for the ice, and the “straight up” $3 extra was because without ice it’s a “special pour.” Really? $1 for ice and $3 for no ice? What do you get for the regular price? Owner eventually made good.
