Excellent food and good service. Tables are very close to each other and noise level moderate to high which takes away from the ambience

We have been to Tap many times and except for one time when a steak was quite rare and needed to be sent back to finish the job, we have never had a bad meal. Highly recommend the restaurant.

A perfect evening started with Prosecco and terrine appetizer. Then on to the Farm To Table dinner. Well executed Gnocchis and Lamb for a first course, then a Beef Ragout Pasta paired with a TULI Pinot Noir. Apple Tarte Tatin for dessert - amazing! Such a great treasure right in our neighbourhood. Many more visits to come!

Food and service is generally excellent. I had the duck leg for an entree and it was excellent. My appetizer
a bit less so, golden beet tapenade that ended up being a bit soggy. The wine list is a bit too heavy on the upper end of the price range, and markups are a bit above double liquor store price. A good dining experience but watch the wine choices.

I have visited Tap restaurant twice with a business group. I brought my wife for the first time on October 1. The food was amazing and the service was awesome. We will be coming back regularly.

Thank you,

The food was great, it was very busy so we had to wait longer than usual for service. Even with the number of customers the noise level was OK.

First time at Tap. Great food and great service.

Never realized that there was something so close to home.

Was a little chilly from the AC but that’s okay.

Will definitely be back

Service wasn't great. Hard to tell who our waiter was...just whoever had time for us? Expect better for what is usually a high end, quality restaurant.

As usual, our dining experience at Tap was amazing. Delicious food with beautiful presentation, a great wine list, and staff that look after your every need, without ever making you feel rushed. Tap has definitely become our favourite fine dining spot in the South Surrey/White Rock area.

Great food, really good service! Would definitely go back and would recommend to anyone. Prices are good for fancier good, only downside is menu is quite simple so need to read menu online before attending because for the price you will want to be sure you’ll want one of the few items on the menu
