Wine was excellent--the red fruit-theme flight was superb! Food was decent, but they need a lot more meatless options! Half our party was vegetarian!

My husband and I had a late lunch at The Tasting Room on Columbus Day. I had the three-course meal consisting of celery/apple soup, Thai chicken salad and pear sorbet. My husband had the house salad and salmon entre. We were both very satisfied with the food. The service was also quite good. Our server ensured that the salmon was... More

Lobster soup with a cream base had an intense crustacean flavor and sweet surprises as juicy kernels of corm crunched between you teeth. Best lobster soup I have ever had. Reasonable service and very inventive salad juxtapositions. I will be going back to explore the menu.

I've had both lunch and dinner at the Tasting Room, and while lunch is very good, I think I prefer dinner, particularly their steaks. With that said, I would definitely recommend it for a business lunch. They have great cocktails and seasonal dishes. And t bothhey were willing to accommodate requests for minor changes without issue (one of the kids... More

A bit on the pricy side, but worth every penny - this place has great food and even better desserts! Stop by for lunch or dinner - but you may want to make reservations as it is usually always busy.

We stopped in for a drink and some snacks. My family ordered a sample of the Tapas and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. If were going to be in town for dinner, I definitely would have liked to have tried this place.

Great place to stop for a quick bite while shopping in Old Town. It is very noisy-hard to hear your friends talk but the food is good but expensive.

Great dinner last night at the Tasting Room. The food was delicious, service was excellent including many extra touches such as changing our silverware with every course, filling our water glasses without asking, and folding napkins when anyone left the table. Although the menu offers fewer choices than some other restaurants, our party of four found it hard to choose... More

Started off well with a delicious summery gin cocktail perfect to cool off from the 90 degree day. Then had a buffalo mozzarella salad with finely chopped and balsamic flavored tomatoes. I have become too accustomed to burrata to appreciate buffalo mozzarella any more but it was good. The lobster bisque was everything it was made out to be. Light... More
