    Went for Brunch. Ordered the French toast. It presented beautifully. Taste is average. It is so thick!! You need more syrup than it comes with and they charge you for the extra syrup. Because it’s so think the egg doesn’t absorb and it’s abit dry. The Mac and Cheese with fried chicken was good. Good service.

    The waiter forgot to put our order in and then when it finally came after a reminder told us it had something to do with the printer. I would have been good if he simply apologized and made it right. Mistakes happen but it wasn’t necessary to make up a story.

    We come all the time, and usually have a great experience, but not this time unfortunately. I called ahead and said we needed a table for a highchair and we were seated in a booth. We told the hostess we needed a table where the highchair would fit and she said she would look into it, but never came back. We went back to the hostess and they agreed to move us outside. They set up a table, but no one told us it was ready so we just sat ourselves down. The food order was completely messed up with wrong dishes brought and several dishes not brought at all. We did get some food items taken off our bill, but it was just really poor service on this occasion.

    We come here often. This time we were put in a very noisy area, with other big groups (we were nine). I was the second of the nine to arrive and ordered wine. Without asking, I was offered a taster, which was nice. However, I have to wait 20 mins for that, and then an hour to get my two glasses of wine which arrived just as I finished my meal. Not ideal. I like to drink before dinner! Also, it would be nice if you could text to confirm the reservation with me. Instead you left a voicemail which I had to listen to while I was at work, and was told I had to call back to keep the reservation! I did that and was immediately put on hold for five minutes. It was a waste of my time. A simple text exchange would have been better. Or nothing at all since I’d already confirmed it.

    We were really looking forward to our time at tap and barrel and unfortunately we had an awful experience. We had terrible service to be honest . We waited 20 minutes for everything we ordered . Our server was clearly overwhelmed with serving our table . It was her first night so we felt for her but we were shocked when no one else at the restaurant stepped up to help her. The only time someone helped her was when she dropped a full glass of wine on the floor and on one of our friend’s jacket. The table was a Mess, never even cleared. It took another 20 minutes to get our bill and a friend had to pay for the entire bill so we could leave . We were in a rush to go and because of how slow the service was we were late to a reunion we were going to. We are an understanding group but this was just too much.

    My GF and I ordered the same meal a poke bowl only she had chicken and I had tofu. But it looked like I had half a portion overall and my GF commented yes she agreed. How could we order the same thing and the portions be so lopsided? But it tasted delicious overall and had a great time.
