Movie Info

One of the greatest restaurants in the world is closing and an eclectic mix of international patrons have arrived in beautiful Catalonia for the final dinner service in this witty and delicious ensemble comedy. As the staff prepare and serve an audacious tasting menu, a young couple in the midst of a divorce who made their reservation a year ago (before separating) reunite for this once-in-a-lifetime meal. Can their romance be rekindled with the help of the widow dining with her husband's ashes? Will the brilliant chef be able to pull off a perfect finale? An Irish and Spanish co-production, TASTING MENU, like all great ensemble dramedies centered on culinary delights, is a crowd-pleasing mishmash of relationships, feuds, and broken dreams that are mended through the simple act of "breaking bread" and the universal appreciation of great food. Similar in style to foodie classics like BIG NIGHT and CHOCOLAT, TASTING MENU will leave you awash in a European sensation of joie de vivre. (c) Magnoliamore

This particular souffle is both overbaked and underseasoned.

This relentlessly mediocre ensemble dramedy features several of the least compelling dinner guests in recent memory.

Unfortunately, Roger Gual's half-baked film hopes to split the difference between romantic comedy and foodie delight but fails at both.

Even with such fine actors as Fionnula Flanagan and Stephen Rea in the ensemble, the Spanish-Irish co-production is a flavorless affair that has all the bite of a dining room-bound episode of "The Love Boat."

"Tasting Menu'' is pretty and pleasing, but no more. A bon-bon, not a meal.

New York Post
Top Critic

Among other demerits, this is the rare foodie movie that doesn't seem to care much about food.
