    The staff never disappoints! I'm a huge sucker for good service over anything, so it's okay if the food is a little bit off once in awhile.

    Not only is...

    This is an adorable little tapas bar in the midst of all the bars and restaurants around downtown Ithaca Commons. There's not much parking around the area...

    I found this establishment to be very oversold.
    Service was good, but the food was passable at best.
    My review likely won't matter. This place was slammed...

    Just a Taste is one of my favorite Ithaca restaurants. The tapas menu is diverse and relies heavily on local food. The wine menu changes regularly, with half a dozen flights at any time - and if you don't like theirs, you can build your own. The staff are very knowledgeable, and I have always been well-supported eating there with a dietary restriction.
    But good luck getting a table! Put your name in, then grab a drink at another local place while you wait.

    Awesome tapas. This place is a little gem buried in the heart of ithaca. Ordered many plates and everyone of them was inspired and delicious. Not the cheapest bite in town but not overpriced either. Its a bit cozy in there which i find to compliment the nature of tapas.

    This place is overpriced. The portions are small. Staff was rude. Some of the 7 dishes we tried were delicious while others were poorly prepared. A potato dish was under cooked and the swedish meatballs were dry even though they were served in a gravy/sauce. The mixed nuts were described as 'spiced' yet failed to note they were an allspice type of flavor not a spicy hot flavor. The staff was rude. When we asked the gentleman questions he walked away without answering. The lady who took the order was nice enough but rushed us to order. At 9:45pm on a Friday we were asked to order any additional dishes. At 10:00 we definitely felt rushed even though there was a group at the bar the man and woman (owners maybe??) were socializing with.
    Overall not a pleasant experience neither with service nor food quality.
