Reservations are accepted on a first-come, first served basis but are not confirmed until The Taste San Francisco, Inc. receives the initial deposit in the amount specified on the deposit page. Once your deposit is received, you will be sent a confirmation email. As space is limited, early reservations are highly advised. If you attempt to reserve an experience that is already at capacity, we will gladly hold your place on a waiting list in the event of a cancellation.
The balance of your payment is due no later than thirty (30) days before the first day the experience begins. An email will be sent to all confirmed guests in advance of this deadline as a reminder of the due date. The balance is to be paid through The Taste Edit online payment portal by the due date. If the final payment is not received by the due date, The Taste San Francisco Inc. reserves the right to cancel your reservation and offer your reservation to a waitlisted guest. In this case, your deposit will be forfeited.
