We really enjoyed this place. The food was very tasty. The beef Wellington and filet small plates were a good combination for the beef lovers out there. The BBQ Korean chicken and sushi rolls were also good. I would definitely eat here again. No complaints.

What an assume place! The food is the best in town. Chef Joel when not busy is out talking to his patrons. If your in town it’s the place to go for dinner and drinks.

I took my boys (12 & 17) here while on a trip. Food was good, service & atmosphere very good. A short wait for table & service. We would definitely come back. Our only critique, more seasoning please.

Great food and very good service. Our dinner was so lovely, we came back for lunch the next day. We were a large group of 10 and they were happy to accommodate us for both meals.

There are lots of GF options and I disagree with the comment about the Phoenix Street Cafe. Taste has a much better quality of food choices and you can get dishes custom to allergy needs.

Unfortunately we do not take reservations during the summer season. I suggest coming a bit early to decrease your chance of a wait. We open at 11:30 am.
