I was here two years ago and I will be coming back to Ithaca this weekend and am planning on coming back here for dinner. It was well worth the wait. The food was fantastic as was the wine pairing with it.
This is the best dessert I have ever tried. I had it 2 years ago on my honeymoon with my husband and I still dream about it. I've tried to replicate the recipe for 2 family gatherings, but it just isn't as good. We're driving 3 hours to have it again for our anniversary! I've only eaten at Just a Taste once, but I've told many people it is my favorite restaurant. The wine, food, staff, and experience is unbeatable. It's definitely a memorable place and perfect for celebrating a special event.
Amazing. Delicious with the sauce on the side.
We get this EVERY SINGLE TIME. It is truly the mainstay of our Just a Taste experience. We've never not ordered it. From the hot, crispy on the outside to soft, delicious potato in the center. Then, dip it in the most delicious chipotle aioli and you'll think you went to heaven.
Best riesling in the area hands down! Must try if you're looking to taste the best of the finger lakes.
Amazing! Super flavorful and perfectly balanced.
Amazing lip smacking goodness! We recently attended after rehearsal with a wedding party and tried about 15 -20 different items (focaccia bread, deep fried corn fritters w/broccoli, russet wedges, spicy saute shrimp. deep fried cod fritters, What a great way to sample so many delicious appetizers. The back patio area was very pleasant and service was exceptional!
An amazing spin on classic chicken wings. I get them every time I go there!
Since around 2001 I have ordered this dish every time I come to the restaurant. I can still remember the first time we shared this plate; I was mesmerized by the oozy cheese, the crisp warmly toasted bread, the refreshing bite of cold melon. I felt sophisticated and made me feel like I had a few extra zeros in my bank account. I was able to make it to Just A Taste for dinner a few weeks ago and as per tradition ordered this dish, now with new admiration for the chefs and owners. I'm older now. I've worked in food service, I've owned a catering company, I've been on a team that opened a restaurant. I've failed in consistency in all of these places, because consistency is harder than it looks. To be able to transport someone with a plate of food is a craft, to be able to do it with bread and cheese is a miracle. I just want you to know how much your food means to the community and that we all learn so much about food, hospitality and camaraderie through our experience at Just A Taste. Thank YOU
Potatoes are always perfectly crispy and the aioli is amazing.
A wonderful compliment to the meal!
Best dish on the menu! Always Order this!
An absolute gem-- seems unassuming on the menu, but trust me, it is anything but that. The greens are wilted to perfection-- buttery, garlicky, fragrant and tender. The walnuts add a crunch and sweet nutty note to complement the pungent garlic. The cheese adds a creamy element that is just unbeatable! Absolutely fantastic dish all around. So well balanced, truly perfection!
Ropa Vieja (Spicy Cuban Style Braised Beef) on Rice
I love the flavors of the Ropa so much! I also always love the salads bc I don't know how you do it but the dressings are always perfectly paired with the greens and other additions!
AMAZING salad with homemade dressing!! Also had fabulous wine flights, the Mahi, the Squash in Brown Butter, Homemade Chorizo, chocolate soufflé and an amazing Bourbon Pecan Banana Bread Pudding- outrageous!! Cant wait to go back for more!!! Thank you!
One of our favorites and often a go-to dish. It's so hard to choose just a few favorites here at Just A Taste.
Best mushrooms I've ever had! They are sauteed perfectly everytime
I grew up in Ithaca and this has always been my favorite restaurant. I take every visitor here and it is a go to for nights out with friends. Amazing food, affordable prices, friendly service, delicious wine. Couldn't ask for more.
Just a Taste is one of my all-time favorite restaurants. I've been coming here for years and even now that I've moved away from Ithaca, every time I come home to visit I try to fit a meal at Just a Taste iin--especially in the summer when the summer squash is on the menu. It's my go-to spot for celebrations, dinner, or even just desert and a glass of wine. I've never had a dish disappoint.
The focaccia is absolutely incredible - it arrives warm with high quality olive oil, and the roasted garlic is a can't miss. I always order this first with the olives, because the secret is keeping a bit of the garlic to use with other dishes throughout the evening!
A must-have dish every time we visit. Focaccia is consistently amazing every time!
This dessert is a perfect balance of sweet and salty- highly recommend!
