My mom loved the ravioli stuffed with mushrooms and great sauce. I had an excellent burger just $15 . Very good wine selection, and others at my table thought food was excellent. A good value. Nice atmosphere... very friendly and courteous staff

This is such a fine place for a nice, relaxed fine meal. The food is elegantly presented and consistently, wonderfully tasty and fresh. The service is outstanding, and the staff are friendly and accommodating. Atmosphere is simple but elegant, and there is ample parking. Highly recommend!

Loved the gluten free designation on the menu, which is why I came here. Looking for a semi-fancy location for my birthday dinner. (Visiting from out of town.) Atmosphere was just "off" -- couldn't hear any music, just loud conversations of others. The fact that it's located in a shopping strip also wasn't what we were looking for. Had a... More

We found this restaurant after a trip to Will Rodgers State Beach which is on Santa Monica Bay. Head up Temesacal Canyon road and you will find it. Small cozy restaurant with great food and excellent service.

I know you don't think "Fine Dining" and "Pacific Palisades" in the same thought too often but when you live out here there are only so many places to go and Taste is one of them. Getting a reservation was pretty easy. The decor was nice and the menu was filled with everything from pizzas to salads to bigger dishes.... More

Been eating hear for a few years. Good food, excellent service. They now have a full bar which is nice. The salmon here is really good. They do A BBQ romaine lettuce salad that is very unusual. And by far they have the best french fries in town.

Been here a number of times. Tonight was really tasty. Also there were a number of young children here. They presented no problems. Somehow they were well behaved. Our waitress Mariam was really nice and took really good care of us. She paid attention to my needs as far as having my hamburger cooked just right. She had extra onions... More

Taste Restaurant is a quite tasty addition to the fine restaurants in Pacific Palisades. Located in the mini-mall at Pali Highlands / Pali Drive just off Sunset and ¼ mile up from the beach. Well appointed w great ambiance. Serves French themed Cali-Centric food prepared just right. Extensive menu and nice wine list. You'll enjoy! ...

Taste at the Palisades, sister restaurant to Taste on Melrose, now resided just off Sunset Blvd a stones throw from PCH. With its relaxed setting, homey yet sophisticated, the menu offers updated Californian comfort cuisine for eminently moderate prices. The menu, split equally between appetizers and entrees, includes seasonal finds like white truffle mac 'n' cheese, salads and pizzettas. The unusual but simple starter of grilled romaine lettuce topped with gorgonzola, applewood smoked bacon and Granny Smith apples is a must-try. Main-course highlights like Kobe beef burger and crispy parmesan chicken paillard atop garlic potato puree. Taste at the Palisades offers everything that people are looking for in a neighborhood restaurant - namely good food and friendly service.
