Arrived on a weekday for lunch and was seated immediately on the shaded patio - perfect for people watching! Had the salmon tacos with fries and wow, just delicious. So fresh and flavorful. The gingerbeer and vodka cocktail was refreshing. Great service. Highly recommended.

Taste was recommended to us by a server in Santa Monica. We had the fish tacos, salad with salmon and BLT with the tortilla soup. The bottomless mimosas were 👍. Calvin was our server and he was outstanding.

Managers worked with us on getting a table on busy mid afternoon Pride weekend even though we were out of towners. Very healthy food and fabulous sangria. Reservations highly recommended.

Went out to LA/West Hollywood early in April, and had dinner the first night at Taste. We arrived early for our reservation and waited at the bar for a table outside in the back. The bar was lively, and the bartenders were fantastic. We enjoyed...More
