By simply selecting their dietary preference, users will be presented with both restaurants and dish choices that fit within their healthy eating plan. In addition to indicating the type of dietary restrictions each restaurant caters to, the app also rates the restaurants based on the quality of their food ensuring the restaurants are using real food ingredients and not products from factory farming, GMO food and/or processed ingredients. Over time, Tasteful learns users' preferences and provides recommendations based on their experience with the app. Restaurants can be reviewed and recommended by the user community.

Tasteful allows users to live a healthy lifestyle easily with:

  • Dish Search. Find the exact dish users are looking for at a location nearby.
  • Shout Out. Tell the Tasteful community about favorite places, dishes and photograph plates for others to see.
  • Leaderboard. The more users do, the more points they get. Users can check out the leaderboard to see where they rank and follow food leaders.
  • Restaurants Tracker. Users can click the "heart" to save restaurants they love or want to try.

"We started Tasteful to help people lead a healthy life through food when they want or have to dine out. Let's face it, no one wants to sit there with friends and eat dry lettuce," said Eswar Priyadarshan, CEO of Tasteful. "There are many ways for people to discover where to eat by ambiance and peer reviews, but filtering by dietary restrictions has been a manual process, resulting in many hours wasted. We wanted to help those discerning eaters find the right place to eat based on ingredient source, food quality and the right dietary options. That is exactly what we have done with Tasteful."
