Taste Community Restaurant

1200 S Main Street, Fort Worth TX 76104
$$ New American Recommended Editor's Pick

Taste Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit established simply to feed people one community at a time. One of every six Americans faces the reality that they may not be able to provide for their next meal. There are programs in place that help; however, in Tarrant County, 36 percent of this food insecure population live above the poverty level and receive no government help. Our mission is to feed, educate, and serve our community so they may “…taste and see the Lord is good.” Psalm 34:8. We believe everyone should have access to healthy nutritional food. Our vision is to see our community become the solution to the challenges our community faces as it relates to hunger. Our first project, a non-profit restaurant, focuses on healthy, quality meals made from fresh ingredients. Our menu has no prices. This is a give and take concept. We ask guests to do one of the following: 1) pay what you can afford. 2) pay what you would typically pay. 3) pay what you would typically pay, plus a little extra.

The vegetable lasagne was too mushy. The mashed vegetable part would have been better to be while vegetables. Not mashed. It seemed like all mushy parts out together. Roasted salad was great!

The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious! The vegetarian lasagna was excellent, but it was served at room temperature. Loved the arugula and fresh citrus salad that was served with it. The bread pudding was also tasty, especially the sauce; however, it was cold in the center. Starter salad and both soups were excellent! Service was friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was bright and happy. We all noticed how clean and tidy the restaurant was, which is much appreciated. Excellent experience and we look forward to our next visit! Thank you!

It’s always a delight to eat at Taste. Yesterday I was there with a longtime friend who lives in Irving and I wanted her to experience eating at Taste. She was extremely impressed and we have agreed that we will try to get a group of our friends together to come and eat there. Thank you for what you do.

Second time there, I wish I would have been more often… there was a new menu and there was many items I wanted to try on the previous one. But this one was as delicious. Great food, great tastes, great people, awesome concept. Everyone should go there, and not only because it is Christmas, but all year long! One advise however : book!

I always enjoy Taste Project. The food was delicious. Single diners were seated at a community table, so we could converse with others. My only issue is the servers were nearly running over each other and some seemed to forget what they were doing. It took nearly 15 minutes to get my drink refilled. Other than that, everything was fabulous! My Thanksgiving meal was outstanding!

As always, everything was superb. Ever since I started volunteering here, and I have the opportunity to take someone out to eat, I bring them to Taste. When I am not there, I brag about Taste and its high quality dishes and, most of all, its working ethos of feeding others who cannot afford good meals like the ones that are served, and it is all done with respect.

I had reservations for seating on the patio because the weather was beautiful, but I had failed to consider that the sun would be in the eyes of people seated on the north side of the table. The host very graciously found us a nice table inside. As a suggestion, you might consider reorienting the tables on the patio so that the guests are facing east and west. An alternative might be some additional shading in the lattice over the patio, but the food and service were very good. I will be coming back but will likely request indoor seating next time.
