Description: We like to think of TASTE as a simple, quaint, non-pretentious, tapas and wine bar that we trust will impart a warm, elegant, metropolitan setting and feel for our friends, one that is always inviting and certainly always inclusive. Our focus is rooted in celebrating the amazing bounty of local and regional foods available to be sourced by us, as well as sharing our passion for fine wine.Our offerings are all small by design and are a reflection of the simple appreciation of fresh and local fare. Our ever changing, and often ambitious, menu tenders a variety of small plates and artisan pizzas, as well as daily tapas, larger entree' specials, pastries, craft and import beer selections and exquisite boutique wine specials. Continuing in this vein, we also offer specialty scratch cocktails that are comprised of house squeezed juices, hand crafted syrups and custom blended liquors.

This is great spot for date night dinner. Food extraordinary. Wine list, superior and Ambiance comfortable, cool and romantic. Worth the trip. You'll love the neighborhood setting too.

Our first trip to Taste was a great experience. There is quite an interesting menu. Some of the combinations sound a bit strange at first glance, but the dishes we ordered were excellent. My wife had the tapas and I had an entree. Being unsure of the tapas portion size, she ordered two. But it turned out that one tapas would have been plenty. We shared the second one. The food is all fresh and was just plain delicious. Wine selection is good and they have beer selections that change with the seasons. Over all I would recommend Taste for a nice dining experience. Beware though, it is a bit pricey for North Augusta. We spent $80 for the two of us, which included one glass of wine and two beers.

What a little gem.The food was of excellent quality matched by the service we received. A tad on the pricy side, but nobody should worry about paying for quality.

We have visited Taste on several occasions. Sometimes it is better than others. Good appetizers, shrimp and grits. Pizza and desserts not always available. Burgers average but $15. Good flan. Good for couples. Outdoor dining available. Make a reservation.

Cool atmosphere, but the waitress tells us that they have no pizza and about half of their menu items are sold out. Bizarre. Apparently, the pizza chef was sick and I guess no one else could do his job. My husband loved his meal, but mine was only okay. Fairly expensive for the area. Good wine selection.
It was a decent experience, but I prefer Manuel's across the street.
