The restaurant is by the corner of La Cienega and Melrose. You have the option to eat a la carte but they have great menu options. The service is excellent and they serve quite large portions. It is very well priced for the quality and amount of food you get. The chocolate bread pudding was to die for!

I was searching for a brunch spot local to home and went online to do a search and Taste of Melrose popped up. I had never heard of this location and wanted to check it out. We arrived and were told that we required a reservation. Needless to say they accommodate our party. The placed looked quite small and once... More

We had a reservation and were seated right away. The restaurant seating is tight, but the food made up for it. There were four of us and we all ordered different dishes. Everyone was pleased with their selection.

I love coming here. I haven't been in a few years but just made it back to reconnect with an old friend. The Brussel sprouts and artichoke apps were amazing! The roasted chicken breast was so good! Great service and great people watching!

Taste was an excellent choice to stop in Melrose for a lovely glass of wine & a delightful menu. I had the rigatoni bolonese & my husband had the Kobe burger. The choice we difficult with the excellent choices & twist on favorite recipes, such as the truffle mac & cheese. A nice adult environment & place to meet friends.... More

For the second time at TASTE I had an unpleasant experience when checking in. Both times there were 70% or more empty tables and the first time we were told we had to wait 25 minutes to sit and the second time the patio was empty and were told we couldn't sit there (1.5 hours later it was still empty)....

We had Sunday brunch at this restaurant. Would highly recommend making reservations as it got very crowded around 11/11:30. Food was delicious and the service was very quick and efficient. The restaurant has a lot of different rooms, including an outdoor area on Melrose and a back patio area that's quieter as well as interior rooms. Lots of options to... More

We chose Taste based on a local's recommendation and we're so glad we did! Delicious drinks, fantastic food, and superb service. The Tasty Mule was divine and Happy Hour in the Atrium is a must! **They brought us the Chocolate Bread Pudding as a bonus for being there to celebrate our birthdays!**

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
