I love this place. The food was amazing. My colleague and I shared 3 plates and dessert. Our server recommended a wine that turned out to be a perfect compliment to our meal. The service was friendly and fast.

I travel to the area quite a bit for work and always hope to be able to loop in a meal at Taste. It is quite literally off the path for most of the restaurants and bars in the area... a hidden gem. If you are a steakhouse lover, this may not be your cup of tea, but if you... More

This was our second visit to Taste. The food here is really good. They have a wide variety of small plates to serve everyone's preferences. I had the fried green tomatoes. The batter was a perfectly crisp cornmeal covering. The two slices were served with a dollop of pimento cheese and micro greens. I also had the special of the... More

Everything we had was delicious- skewers-sliders- bruschetta- nachos. So so good. And Wednesday is 1/2 price wine BTG. A necessity for any girls night! This is definitely a new favorite.

Taste use to be my go to neighborhood spot. I think they have lost their way. We were their last seating of the night and told no problem. They clearly didn't want us there. Terrible service. Impatient staff. Tossing their keys on the counter loudly to signal to get out. They made it clear they are not interested in keeping... More

We stopped here for a drink and snack before heading over to the Talley Center for an event. This was a first time visit with friends - We will be back. My lemon drop martini was perfect. We tried the angus beef sliders, ahi tuna, scallops, and beets. Everything was perfectly cooked and very flavorful. Atmosphere is warm and inviting... More

We just went to Taste for a light Mothers Day dinner and we were extremely happy with what we found. First, we are traveling with our small, well behaved Pomeranian and we were looking for a place with an outdoor terrace where he would be welcome. We were surprised when we arrived that it was a little off the beaten... More

I stopped by Taste this past weekend because it sounded similar to a Tapas restaurant I visited in VA that i really liked. I really liked this place. the food was really good. Small plates of delicious food and a large wine list.

On a recent trip to Raleigh, my friends and I had dinner at Taste on the Saturday night of Valentine weekend 2/13/16. The reasons I didn't give them 5*: 1. Even with a reservation for 4, It took them over 20-minutes to seat us. 2. We had drinks at the bar while waiting and then we were seated. They didn't... More

A "just inside the beltline" neighborhood establishment where every morsel achieves that elusive, cuisine-defining balance of sweet, salty, and sour - even dessert. Our serving style is 'morsels' which are portions between appetizers and entrees. We rotate new seasonal selections to our menu, but keep our favorites available all the time. Check out our feature daily veg dish on our chalkboard or as a server for details. Our wine is carefully selected to pair appropriately with each morsel dish. At Taste, you'll also have access to our owner's private wine reserve. Our craft beer selection is like going to your favorite bottle shop and yes, we have rotating drafts! Come see us tonight. Taste is part of a locally owned and operated restaurant group: JMR Kitchens.
