Review: Taste - Burlington, VT

TonyO | May 27, 2008 07:33 AM

My wife and I decided to celebrate her birthday a day early on Sunday night as Monday was Memorial Day and we would be home cooking. This is typically a tough night in restaurants so we choose a place we have had positive experiences in the past. We made the right selection !

Te service is always friendly and professional at Taste. Our server, Dara, has clearly chosen this profession because she enjoys it. I wish this was the case more often.

We started off with a Fried Calamari appetizer that was properly prepared and accompanied by two sauces. The dish was beatifully plated and delicious. Our entrees were a Grilled Ribeye and one of the specials which featured linguine tossed with a cram sauce that contained chorizo, wild mushrooms, smoked tomatoes, and fiddleheads. Both dishes were very good. My wife had a couple of well prepared cocktails and I thoroughly enjoyed a glass of Washington State Syrah. Taste does a great job of offering many fine wines by the glass and uses proper stemware, two options I would like to see more restaurants pay attention to.

If you are visiting Burlington, Taste should be on your list for enjoyable dining and great service. The huge parking lot is also a plus especially on busy weekend nights.
