Cute spot, that's a welcomed casual experience on the Paso Park Square. Personally, I find the seasonal boards are the big winners. It has proven to be a great starter for cocktail hour and a few times my entire meal.Food: 5/5

I’ve been looking for a place for dinner and I can not be more pleased with my selection. I ordered a full size ahi tuna salad and my husband had a trio of 2 sliders and a soup. The food is fresh, tasty and looks fantastic! The place is modern and sophisticated, I love the vibe!

Wow. We love this place. The sliders are fun and too hard to pick a fav. Our bartender Andrew was really into learning more about my husbands bourbon experiences. We’ll be back for sure !!

Came here for my girlfriend's birthday celebration. Definitely dig their take on all the different slider options. There is a little bit for everyone here. Also an amazing creme brulee to top it off. While you're in Paso chances are you would probably have some good wine to cork at this place and the fee is only $15.

I was excited to eat here after reading the reviews on yelp while visiting in Paso Robles. I was disappointed the food was just OK. All of the sliders that I had ordered the chicken was hard and cold and the bread was hard so I ended up removing all of the contents, and just eating some of the meat with my salad. The waitress was nice but handling too many tables I would give the food 3 out of 10 stars. Friendliness 7, ability to wait on a customer in a timely manner 3. I also feel if you're a first time customer, the waiter or waitress should know the menu and be able to make suggestions. Our waitress could not make drink or food suggestions for us.The manager messaged and apologized for the experience we had as first time diners. I didn't ask but she refunded our meal. I appreciate her prompt reply and correspondence. Thank you for providing good customer service & following up. We will give this another try when we visit the area again.

Easy paid & free parking, located in the center of town facing the park, friendly efficient staff, pleasant decor that includes a small outdoor dining area. If you're in the mood for a burger or sandwich or maybe a fresh salad you will be pleased. I had a spinach salad, chicken sandwich & truffle fries. Enjoyed the food, it was fresh, tasty, and sized just a bit smaller to allow for double or triple combo choices. Recommended.

We ate lunch at Taste and the sliders were wonderful. The shoe string fries we fresh and crispy. My wife and I enjoyed our meal very much! We would recommend this establishment to all.

Choose your own adventure meal! Very neat concept and a lot of choices to choose from. Can get 4 sliders if you want, or 2 sliders and fries and brussel sprouts (highly recommend). The only bad thing was the bread on the sliders were not good. It tasted lame, untoasted, and a bit stale.

Average food, at best. First, the good. Our cocktails were very good and strong. Our waitress did a very good job and was very attentive. We had the French Fries as an appetizer and they were very good. The salads were good.Now, the bad. The sliders were mediocre. Bread was stale, the chicken tasted like frozen and microwaved tenders. They were tough and somewhat stringy. The ban-mi sandwich was not a ban mi. It had what tasted like pre-fab shredded pork, a generous portion, but no taste and no sauce. The Mac and cheese was either overcooked or old, as it was hardened and tough.We were a party of six and everyone had mixed reviews similar to what I wrote above. Will try again, next time different items in the hopes that food is better

Lots of flavor and lots of choices.The menu concept is a little different-- you can choose two menu items for $16, three for $20 or four for $29.There is a huge list of different kinds of sliders, salads, appetizers, and a few soups. I settles on 3 items: a mixed green berry salad, french style Brussels sprouts, and sweet potato fries.Salad featured frisee with balsamic vinagrette with pistachios- nice overall, , just a little heavy on the dressing. Large serving of sweet potato fries that could easily be shared with someone. The brussels sprouts featured a nice combo of roasted sprouts with olive oil, bacon bits, parmesan, and a touch of maple syrup. I loved the combo but I'd serve it on the plate (nearly impossible to eat out of a ramekin) and change the ratio to more sprouts and less bacon. (was almost equal)Service was excellent-- our server was doubling up as bartender and was very attentive, filling up my water glass several times.This is a great place for groups and for sharing small bites or meals.

We were in Paso for one night and looking for a lunch spot. TASTE! Did not disappoint. The service was great. Several beers on tap. I didn't have to tell them to be sure my Irish coffee had no Irish cream in it. There are so many combos to choose from. The soup of the day was Cream of Mushroom and quite possibly the best I've ever had. In addition to the soups, hubs had the Dirty Bird chicken sandwich. Spicy (grilled jalapeño) and a smoky bbq sauce on a perfect size ciabatta roll. I had the Bahn Mi sandwich with succulent pulled pork, jalapeño and sweet pickles, also on a ciabatta roll. We will always come back when in Paso. This place is worth checking out.

This place was not the plan, but it should have been. We had a large group and they graciously accommodated and wowed us. The hummus was one of the best I've ever had. Their macaroni and cheese offerings were overwhelming, and the fries were incredible. The soup of the day was so good, we ordered more. If you are in the area, take a chance on their concept, you won't be disappointed.

This was our first time eating at TASTE! and before visiting we had heard mixed reviews about the food. I can confidentially say that we will not be coming here to eat again (had to give it a chance at least once, right?). Our server was nice enough but I can't overlook the terrible food quality. We ordered fries, half shoestring/half sweet potato, and they were the best part of the meal by far. We ordered three sliders each, and a bacon mac and cheese, and the sliders were just so basic, and had no flavor at all. Its like they threw it together with microwaveable meat and ciabatta mini rolls they got from Costco or Albertsons. Each slider is majority just the bread and spring mix; and almost no sauce even though it says it comes with sauce/aioli. By the time we were done, our entire plates were covered with spring mix. Would recommend they use different breads for different sliders, use more sauce/aioli if it says it comes with some, and rethink their overall food quality and freshness. This place is extremely disappointing - I would highly recommend not going here if you are looking for a place to eat.

This place was recommended by locals in the area, so while my partner and I were here exploring Paso Robles, we gave it a try. I really like the concept getting a few different bites as a single entrée. I think this is a great idea and gives folks the opportunity to try different things. Overall the food was decent for where were were and what it was. I would probably give it 3.5 stars for that. Why this has dropped to a solid three (or possibly even lower), is that the service just wasn't there. We walked in to no wait and a lot of open tables, but I am not sure that the server wasn't told, or was on break, but it took quite some time before we were acknowledged. Parking seems accessible in downtown Paso, but as I did not drive, I cannot speak to it from personal experience. Overall, it was good and I would maybe try it again to see how things are going or if the service level is any different.
