Our server was great. I had a gluten free crust & it was apparently a new crust. The crust was pretty raw close to the centre, but the edge were cooked alright.

The poorest dining experience I've had in quite some time.
Our pleasant waiter arrived wearing a filthy and stained black T-shirt.
Disconcerting in COVID times. (We later observed staff giving only cursory wipedowns of tables. Poor work and most worrisome during a pandemic.)
Our breakfast arrived very promptly and was barely warm so we sent it back.
The remake took quite some time and when the food arrived it was only slightly warmer than the first time. We accepted it without comment.
My avocado toast had crust tough as cardboard, overdone poached eggs and the tator tots had been deep fried in so much grease it inspired indigestion!
You go to this restaurant at your own risk both in regard to unacceptably low cleanliness standards and poor food quality.
It's a risk I won't be taking ever again.

Tap & Barrel offers solid casual food with some of the best real estate in Vancouver. I highly recommend booking through Open Table as they're quite busy in the summer. The patios are fantastic.

Fried chicken Mac & Cheese was great, with a pint of Fat Tug IPA. We made reservation the day before & requested for patio seating. We got a call reminding us of our reservations & when we showed up on the day of, we were seated in the patio. It has a wonderful atmosphere for casual dining or just for a drink any time of the year but especially during the summer.

When I made my reservation I used their “special requests” section to note that it was my daughters birthday and we would like a surprise dessert brought out to her. I just assumed they would act on the notes and bring her something.....it was not even acknowledged, no mention of a birthday, no dessert, no singing etc. If. You’re going out to eat the patio is great, if you’re going for a celebration.....don’t get your hopes up.

Great experience, loved the food. Our server was great; however, when his shift was done, he asked us to settle the bill half way through our meal so he could be tipped on it. I get it, every man for themselves and he worked hard for us so he totally deserved it. BUT that being said, Tap and Barrel should figure this out internally and within your accounting department. He should be tipped based on what he rang in. I don't want to be touching that pin pad in the middle of a meal. I hope that makes sense. Just something to think about.

Sat on the patio...it was great! We ordered from the Happy Hour Menu -- chips and guac, hot wings and the mushroom pizza with a few drinks. It was most enjoyable! Great way to spend a few hours!

When we arrived we were seated in a shady spot next to several sunny empty tables. All three of us were quite cold and we asked politely to be moved to one of the empty tables In the sun (before food arrived!). We were told that other patrons waiting downstairs in a line up (no reservations) wanted to sit in the sun also and we could not be moved now. We were told that we should have requested a sunny table while making our reservations online. The heat lamps were also not turned on for us.

Two of the sunny tables were empty for over half an hour while we had our lunch. The manager came by again to tell us that because of Covid, they had to be extra careful so did not want to move people. In the meantime we observed several tables being cleaned and it did not seem like a lengthy or complicated procedure as it consisted of less than a 30 seconds spritz of the tabletop only. Items like Coffee creamer were served to be shared by guests.

Our food was nice but we were cold and put off by the rude service to fully enjoy it. I understand that staff may be stressed under current circumstances (and our main server was very polite) but perhaps you could change or add some of your protocols with your managers to make it more enjoyable for your guests.

Only problem was calling. I tried calling earlier in the week, and couldn’t get through. Then later made a 2 day in advance reservation, hours before when I wanted to update from 2-4 people, I spent 35 minutes on hold. I finally had to physically show up to make changes to the reservation.
