This cozy store really knows how to use the space and make everyone feel welcome. We had a wine tasting event for a work Christmas party. All attendees had nothing but good things to say about the space and how knowledgeable and kind the staff and owners are. They give a family vibe and won't steer you wrong on wine selection. They have a good assortment of both wine and beer, and most of these have a neat story behind why they're sourced at the store.

Lovely spot right off the square! Wine and beer at very fair prices, all very delicious as well. Great bites to choose from while having a drink, the patio area is so cute and makes the experience even more delightful! Our server, Brandon, was incredible and made the experience great for my first time there. I will be recommending this spot and definitely be back myself!

I had my first experience at Taste last weekend and wow was it amazing. The staff were truly beyond lovely - super knowledgeable about the menu and the wines as well as SO warm and welcoming. I sampled a red wine and a rose - both were fantastic. We also had their cheese plate for red wine and it was the perfect serving and pairing. They also have an excellent outdoor patio. It's right off the Jarvis red line stop which makes it super convenient to get to.

Staff is always fantastic and they have a large selection of beers, wines, etc. to take home or try on site. Nice outdoor seating area in the warmer months, plus some food options that change up often. Right off the CTA Redline at Jarvis.

Just moved back to the neighborhood and was excited to see the changes made here. Not only do they have a great local beer selection (my fave) but they also carry amazing wine and liquor at all price points. The best change is they now have a small kitchen with delicious flat bread and vegetarian options were awesome for me and my friend. they offer lunch on Friday's which i can't wait to go back and try. that watermelon salad and rosé special looks great!

I went in this establishment today at approximately 2:30pm. As I entered the business there was a white male sitting behind the counter. I asked him was the wine tasting experience like at the above location. The white male respond on Tuesday and Thursday’s were the only days the wine tasting services were offered or provided. I further asked the gentle well what do you have available. He informed that that he was out of wine and that the weather was hindering the business day. Now this business was open but yet he told me an African American male that basically he wasn’t in service on todays date on 04 nov 2022 ( Friday). I believe this white male and this business is racist and doesn’t want to serve African Americans and residents of the the rogers park community. It’s the year 2022 and racism is act of hatred and a coward. After the white male basically refused to service me or offer service I exited the business and told him thank you. To the white male I didn’t catch your name but be careful how you treat future members of that community and potential customers never know who your dealing with that comes into that location.

I've been going in Taste for about 3 years now and just love the employees. Very nice and sweet people.


Fabulous store with wonderful selection of wine and spirits. You’ll find local vodka, gin, etc. as well as incredible imported wines.Brandon is consistently the most thoughtful and informed individual I’ve ever interacted with in retail. One aspect I particularly appreciate is that when I ask for a recommendation, he doesn’t start with “well, what’s your price point? (Like every other store). Instead, asking what wines I enjoy and making recommendations at at a variety of price points which allows me to make an informed decision whether I’m purchasing a special occasion bottle or the Tuesday night bottle of wine.As of March 2022 Taste offers wine tastings on Tuesdays and Friday nights from 5:30-7:00 for $5. We enjoyed the tasting with friends and noticed there were couples with kids and people in all life stages which I love!

I have been coming to Taste for well over a decade and when I lived in the neighborhood back in 2008 we were in their wine club. The selection of wine is great. The staff is knowledgeable and easy to work with. And, they throw some great events from weekly wine tasting with half a dozen bottles to their Bastille Day celebration which might have 70 plus wines to sample. They are a wonderful neighborhood asset.
