Our party of 4 ordered 2 small plates each to share. Every one was delicious! The only problem was that the hot dishes were not hot. For example, the sirloin bites were cold... but we still enjoyed them because they were so tender and tasty. Other than that, the service was very friendly. Other favorite dishes... 3-cheese plate, mac &... More

We have been here on a few occasions. Usually celebrating a birthday with a group of adults. The food is delicious. Much different than you can get anywhere else in the area. Haven't had a bad plate yet. They have a wide selection of food and drinks. I love the North beach martini. They don't skimp on the alcohol either.... More

This is one of our annual stops to dine while in South Haven. The food is excellent and the service is great. Their small plates offer a variety of eating options. The drinks are also exceptional and the prices won't destroy you.

The jalapeno parmesan soup had just the right amount of heat and stringy cheese goodness! The Korean BBQ Chicken sauce tasted so authentic and the chicken just melted in your mouth! Plus the service was great!

We purposely took a road trip to SH for dinner, skating and a movie with our family of 4. Too cold and windy to ice-skate, so we had a relaxing dinner at Taste. We were hungry, and so, enjoyed several of the Tapas dishes. From the tomato/parmesean soup, hummus and pita, to ribs, mac n cheese, Cajun chicken and the... More

We've been to South Haven a few times and we were excited to try the newer Taste this year. I had a Martini and my husband had wine, which was a special $2 off a glass or $10 off a bottle on that particular Wednesday. We ordered 5 small plates to share, and they were all very good. We were... More

We had a good dinner at Taste, a small plate restaurant. Food was flavorful and delicious. South Haven proved to be a fun little town!

I had called ahead and spoke several times to Taste. I originally spoke to an awesome man , Michael over the phone. We were so busy in town we called to change our reservation to a later time that evening. Taste staff were helpful to do that for us. Then when we got there I was pleasantly surprised to see...

We have been to South Haven numerous times and have walked right by this place every time. My wife and I decided to stop in recently and couldn't be more surprised. The restaurant itself was very cozy and the service was excellent. They are a small plate restaurant but if you want sandwiches or a main dish they have those... More
