Went with a group of 5 colleagues and friends. We all had different food - poke salad, fresh seared tuna burger with salad and fish and chips. All were good.

Had someone with me who was from out of town and would’ve loved to sit upstairs for the views… there was seating available but we were seated downstairs with no views!

Very good brunch options. There are some very good Gluten free options which was a big plus for us. The only slight inconvenience is that the table reserved was to be inside and we ended up sitting outside.

I'm glad I made a reservation. Upon arrival I was still asked if we really wanted the patio or if we'd consider indoors, to which I said we want the patio I reserved. We were seated on the patio. It was quite loud, I think the plastic keeps the noise in the patio, and every table was talking really loudly. I would not use the word' energetic' as in the survey, I would say the noise was quite annoying. Otherwise, a great experience.

Had pizzas a lot at Tap, always really good. Today pizza was stone cold, few mushrooms (wild mushroom pizza) and heaped with greenery. Wife’s burger was an autumn special - poutine burger. She didn’t care for it. Service, as usual, was excellent & so was the beer. Have been going once a week but don’t think we’ll be back for a while.

The view hasn't changed but the food, drinks, and service has gone down hill. I'll be going to Cactus and Earls for that. Both their Happy Hours have better food, drinks, and prices, plus the service is way better.

We had the Steak Frites, Chicken Burger, Prosciutto Pizza and Pesto Chicken Pasta. The first 3 were delicious, but the Pasta was not that good. We were celebrating our anniversary so they even got us a brownie on the house. Fantastic view. Would recommend.

The servers should not be picking up the dinner plates, water glasses, wine glasses, etc. until everyone at the table is finished eating. It looks terrible to see two empty table settings and one person still eating and/or drinking.

The cost of a bottle of wine seems outrageously expensive!

Our server was friendly and attentive and everyone enjoyed their meals, aside from the dessert. When we let our server know the brownie was hard, she immediately apologized and brought out a new one. Would highly recommend!

The brunch food is dreadful. Very bland. The avocado bowl had limited, tiny pieces of avocado. The tots taste so processed and have no flavor except salt. The basic breakfast was also bland. The hostess stand was very disorganized for seating even though we had reservations. The server was great though! Very attentive, organized, pleasant.

My daughter is vegan. If you’re not a fan of Beyond Meat burgers (which she is not), there are very limited options. Pizza was delish. Being from a city near Buffalo, NY, have to say that the wings don’t measure up. Friendly staff. Wish the upper patio had been open…views would’ve been better!

Great location! Service maybe not as good as usual. Asked to sit under a tent but they wouldn't let us, and we had a reservation at 11am. There wasn't anyone else there so I didn't understand why not. I can't sit in the sun at all which is why I requested a covered area. Service was good at first, then we didn't see our server for quite awhile, had to call him over. Still like it there though, great beer choices and food is okay, wish there were more vegan choices.

The service is always great and the food too but they need to listen more in the kitchen when people have strong preferences of not having a ingredient on the meal. It happened twice that they did not follow the request.
