This restaurant is a pleasant surprise and a heavenly walk as it is close to both residences and the hospital. Everything I tasted was fantastic and I am looking forward to returning. I was proud of yet another little Iowa City restaurant. I was thoroughly impressed by the sandwich and salad I ordered. I would not call this restaurant a five course meal kind of place but it certainly beats the normal lunch stop!!!

My husband & I were very disappointed to be served the ends of the pork loin. It was dry & the pretty good polenta & spinach sald couldn‘t make up for it. We can‘t recommend the restaurant anymore.

Flavors were as tired as the evergreen garlands still hanging on the facade.

Taste is the place we always find ourselves when we go "fine dining." The atmosphere is cozy and charming. The service is alway top-knotch. The menu set up is conceptually smart offering diners half or full portions allowing you to try a variety of what they offer. You‘ll want to try it all. Can‘t beat the crab cakes! A completely delightful dining experience! BRAVO!

Went with 3 other ladies for a birthday lunch. Food was nice but the server was terrible. Any server who sees 4 ladies walk in for lunch should know there will be separate checks. She lumped the entire amount together and didn‘t even price out each meal on the ticket. When we told her we were paying separately she told us that Taste on Melrose does not do separate checks. She was annoyed that one of us paid with a debit card and the other 3 paid with cash.

Needless to say although the food is good, none of us will be going back.
