Went to Taste tonight because I had a Blackboard Eats coupon. We had been there before and the food was okay, but nothing super spectacular...and probably would not have gone back had we not had the coupon. I forwarded to a friend a few weeks ago & he used it - so they would not let me use it again. Did not know this was unacceptable - as I have used other coupons multiple times (most recently at Street and previously at Saint Amour). The hostess was not very nice about it; kind of bitchy actually and repeated over and over that they would not accept it...even though I was very nice about it saying I did not know this rule. I feel like she could have made an exception or at least been a little nicer, especially if she wanted repeat business. Will not be going back again.
The food...we split 3 appetizers and an entree. Appetizers included Arugula Salad with Fennel and Pomegranate (the seeds were not sweet or particularly ripe), Elephant Roasted Garlic served with toasted Ciabetta bread was good, Fried Rock Shrimp (ok - a bit greasy). Pet peeve they brought everything out at the same time - despite saying we wanted it in courses. For the entree we got the Hanger Steak. We had the chocolate bread pudding for dessert - recommended by our neighbor - and we were glad we had it. But after the bill situation our night was definitely dampened and we didn't leave with a good taste.
