Taste Restaurant & Wine Bar
Posted by Ryan Willis on 12/20/2013
I took my kids and wife here one night last week. We had done some shopping in their market and wanted to grab a bite to eat locally. "Taste" has a wonderful rotating seasonal menu and a great pairing menu. The staff was helpful and knowledgable. I would love to come back again.

Basically after eating at Taste this week I decided this isn't so much a restaurant as a way for a specialty grocery store to make productive use of excess space. Unprofessional staff, lack of attention to details in orders, small portions, unexciting and overpriced food- to me these folks should stick to what they do best - bread.

Great food. Special night out. Great Date night.

Over priced and small portions. Went for fathers day brunch and should have known it wasn't good because the restaurant was empty. How about an egg white lox and onion omelette $15.95 that doesn't come with home fries or toast. We had to order a side order of home friesthat cost $5.00 Not to mention the small size of the eggs. Would have been better off in a diner.

This would be the perfect neighborhood restaurant except for one thing: the prices. The service is friendly, the food excellent and fresh and there's always something on the menu that is just what you want to eat. And if it's pricey, well, this is the Upper East Side, a neighborhood that can afford it. And by the wayit's a great place to go for during-the-week lunches, when there's a soup and salad buffet.

Taste is one of my favorite restaurants in this area, and as a self-professed "foodie," that is saying a lot! The quality of the ingredients is amazing as everything is sourced from the store below. The menu changes weekly, and the combinations are always fresh and exciting. They offer so many special touches including the homemade potato chips at the bar and the sugared grapefruit skins after desert. The service is high touch and friendly, and the atmosphere is warm and relaxing. My husband and I are regulars (as is the wonderful Eli Zabar who is a food icon in my opinion). We can't wait to go back tonight!
