Taylor's Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Taylors sourcing, freshness, and preparation are simply better than its peers. Every item simply tasted better than Ive had almost anywhere else, and our server made excellent suggestions and clearly loves food and enjoys his work. Just go if you ve never been, thank me later.
Went to Taylor's due to availability on Open Table. It was such a great discovery. Delicious meals had by all 4 of us. The tomato/mozzarella was a hit due to fresh mozz. Great options for all courses. For a vegetarian option the Johnny Cakes were delish with a little bit of heat in the sauce! Will go there again for sure.
Food was superb! My wife had the duck breast and I the scallops. Both dishes were cooked to perfection and wonderfully seasoned. The scallops melted in my mouth. The accompanying local vegetables were also perfectly cooked and seasoned. The service by our server, Mitch and the other staff members was just the right level of attentiveness. Dessert was a cornbread pudding and lime sherbet which was the perfect end to a memorable meal..We will definitely be back!
I made these reservations for our 39th Wedding anniversary. I think Taylors is a pretty neighborhood place, the service is friendly and the food is fresh. When we entered the restaurant the waiter directed us to sit at a badly situated table next to the entry door. I explained To him that it was our wedding anniversary and he gave us a better seat and a glass of complimentary bubbly. That was a great thing because we were going to walk out if they didn't do something. as it was, the bad table was still empty throughout the entire evening. Did they treat my reservation that way because of Open Table? I've been there many times and they have always been nice. Why would they do that to a costumer? Saving the best seats for better people then us? Also, My streak was difficult to cut, even with the special steak knife.
We had a very attentive waiter who made suggestions and gave details on preparation of dishes. Generous portions and great flavors. Weather was nice enough that large windows were opened which almost made us feel we were dining on a patio. I would go back again.
Service was very good. Food was delicious. Especially loved the Strawberry & Herbed Goat Cheese and the Roasted Asparagus salads. So many delicious flavors can be tasted in these salads. Dry Aged Rib Eye steak was so tender and loaded with flavor. Didn't care for the red onion and proscuitto bread pudding that accompanied the steak.
The night I had dinner at the restaurant, the air conditioner was not working properly which made the dining experience somewhat uncomfortable. While the decor is charming and nice, it is a little too noisy for me.
I would definitely go back--especially for the scrumptious salads.
My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary. I arrived 30 min early and had flower that the staff arranged in a vase for ou table and the anniversary ring was give to our friend and head chef to put on a preordered dessert to be brought out at the end of the meal. My son was my wife's chauffeur, all the way down from Pollock Pines, to the restaurant! The staff was very accommodating and helpful and friendly! Chef Casey is top notch and very talanted with all that she does their! Highly recommend Taylors Kitchen . You will not be disappointed! Thank you Taylors Kitchen and chef Casey!
We enjoyed a delightful Mother's Day brunch at Taylor's. Good food (especially the quiche!), friendly service. Taylor's is a GREAT neighborhood restaurant , one at which we usually enjoy dinner. The staff always treat us like long-lost friends, the ambiance is warm but not overstated, and the food is wonderful.
The first courses and salads are the real stars, but the entrees are outstanding as well. Excellent ingredients, interesting combinations,and mostly generous portions, The Farro salad with roasted vegetables was a flavor and texture bomb, and the beet salad, loaded with beets and other thinly sliced vegetables, a meal in itself. The beets were perfectly cooked. The lamb special had two serous loin chops and an array of seasonal vegetables.
We love Taylor's Kitchen for a guaranteed great meal when we are in the mood to eat well and pamper a bit. It is our neighborhood (Curtis Park/Land Park) good food spot. The music is always great and interesting because it is created by an expert. Taylor's Market next door has a great butcher shop so Taylor's Kitchen has the best cuts to serve. Wine is a specialty too.
Our dining experience could not have been better! The food and the service were equally "top-shelf". We were dining early in the evening, so, we had the advantage of having the place to ourselves for the first 30-45 minutes of our time there.
The staff was friendly, prompt, attentive and well-informed.
The food was delicious, well-presented and served at exactly the right pace.
Our plans are to return regularly.
We had not been to Taylor's for quite some time because, frankly, we were not all that impressed with the food on those previous occasions. Things have changed! The current chef is making quite a difference in the menu and the quality of the menu items has greatly improved. The restaurant still has a great neighborhood feel to it, but the food should attract diners from any neighborhood.
My husband and I came for an early Valentine's Day celebration. It was a rainy evening and the restaurant was warm and inviting. The table we were given was too close to the bar and the bright lights from the kitchen, so next time I'll remember to request a table on the other side of the restaurant, which is lovely. Our server was very attentive and pleasant. My first course, a creamy mushroom soup, was outstanding. It had great flavor and was served very hot. My husband ordered gnocchi for his first course, and he was very happy with it. For the main course, I ordered a bison rib-eye special, and my husband ordered beef rib-eye. My bison had a terrific flavor and was cooked a perfect medium-rare. My husband's steak was also good, and prepared with a wonderful chimichurri sauce. We were too full for desert, but we each had an espresso to end our meal, and we were glad we did, because it was well-prepared with high-quality beans. We left very happy!
I took my husband for his birthday.. I requested a cozy table . We were seated in the middle of the floor right in the walkway. We were so cold from the door being opened, we asked to be moved. The server was kind and professional. We did have to ask twice for the glass of wine ordered. We had steak tar tare, probably the best I have ever had. I could have had that as my meal. We also had the foe gras, very tasty, Served with silver dollar pancakes. (Uneventful) the main course was scallops , husband said they were "just OK" I had a taste and thought they were a bit fishy. I ordered the rib-eye. The meat was seasoned a bit on the salty side, but still an excellent cut of meat. I was a bit disappointed in the temperature of the meat as I had ordered rare. Some places have difficulty preparing a true rare steak. I would say it was more medium rare. Dessert was also a bit of a disappointment. Husband selected 3 flavors of ice-milk and same flavor of cookie. It was served as a watermelon scoop with the same size cookie, the flavor was just a hint, nothing to right home about.. I would probably go back to sit at the bar and have the tar tare again, and a nice glass of wine.
We hadn't been to Taylor's Kitchen in a while and decided to have a quick early diner there. We were very glad we did. Red Oak lettuce salad was great. We also shared a wonderful scallops dish and their aged rib eye.... both were cooked perfectly. They had a good Sonoma Coast pinot on the menu that worked well with our dishes. The service was very good and we will come back!
As usual, no problems with the food at all, it's beyond reproachable...the problem this time (hasn't been a problem in the past ) was the amount of time it took to be served our entree (one hour!)...this was for a 6:30 seating for 3, and the place was 2/3 empty when we placed our order...they were kind enough to comp soup, dessert, just felt the time waiting for the entree was excessive
