For me, the word "pleasant" is a very mild compliment about food. I would tend to use a stronger word, such as "delicious".
4. No, that doesn't work for me.
Student or Learner
I would like to discuss the adjective, pleasant, first.
(1) The food served in this restaurant has a pleasant taste.
(2) The food served in this restaurant has a pleasant smell.
I would like to ask about the following statement.
(3) The food served in this restaurant is pleasant.
Is (3) above understandable when you describe food as pleasant without referring to its taste and smell?
I have heard of the expression, "Years come and go."
I think it means that time goes very quickly year after year.
If you talk about this particular year going quickly, can you use the singular form of the word, "year"?
(4) The year comes and goes.
Please explain. Thanks a lot.
Pleasant is just a polite word for 'mediocre'.
You can also say 'the food is satisfying, tasty, scrumptious, appetizing, etc'.
