Neighborhood Gem! Love it!
One of my favorite places to go! Everything about Taps is excellent, the food, the service, the ambiance, the environment, what more can I say.

Equisite without Stuffiness
They have entertainment on Saturday nights (and maybe other times). Very fun, fast-paced, but good for the gourmet food seekers.
Food is very good, and chef is flexible to your taste or special dietary needs.

Taps is a great place to go for something special or to switch it up from the usual average restaurant. Their Red Sangria is te best I have ever had! I took my husband here to celebrate his graduation from graduate school and it was a blast.

Hello- Me and my family/group had a wonderful time all except for the service. We asked for 3 coffees, never brought them. Asked for condiments, never brought them, asked for waters, long wait. Omelettes took forever. It got to the point that when we wanted something, we simply got up and got it ourselves from the wait staff inside. Our waitress was very friendly and courteous, just maybe a little over worked and/or forgetful. We will definitely come back, but regarding this outting, the service was poor. It would be better if you made the coffee readily available for the customers and maybe have an omelette station to place your orders in yourselves. Even when we asked for the check it took over 15 mins to receive it.

The food and service were
The food and service were great even with a large wedding party coming in. Drunken Mahi Mahi with a house IPA were fantastic. We plan on going to the Brea location as well.
4 1/2 stars is my vote

Came for our engagement dinner...re
Came for our engagement dinner...really enjoyed the atmosphere, ambiance and scenic view. Or waiter was knowledgable and fast to serve. The food was excellent, except the second filet of Sea Bass was WAY over salted and inedible. But other than that everything was fantastic. Highly recommended!

Great Anniversay Celebration!
Staff went out of it's way to help us celebrate our wedding anniversary. The Heart
Sequines, tossed atop the table, was the start of a very enjoyable evening. Andre made sure that our experience was top-notched, throughout the evening, capped by TAPS delicious food.

The Girls Got the Truffles
It was a girl's weekend out. We had an outstanding waitress, named Roxie. She never gave us chance to ask for refills, additional silverware or plates. The design of the restaurant seemed to have change since I last visited. I was disappointed that the chefs could not make a decent omelet. They were overcooked. I also noticed that there were no truffles. Roxie was nice enough to ask the chef to prepare them just for us. They were very good but not like the ones I have had before. I did take pictures and will post them later. I will always come back.

The food was great. The waiter
The food was great. The waiter was awesome. The restaurant was nice and clean. The only issue I had was after making a reservation and showing up in time, i was told that we were checked in and would be seated right away. As we waited, another couple came in with the same reservation time as my wife an I. They were seated right away. Then a walk in group of 3 to 4 came in, and they were seated as we waited. Then a group with a pager was summoned up and seated. And we proceeded to wait another 5-10 minutes before we were finally seated. Other than that the experience was wonderful.

Fine dining comes to Corona
Although it is a small chain, Taps in Corona feels like a custom Gem. Great food,booz, and excellent atmosphere! While I've had quitea ffew items on the list notable choices are: Calimari provincial style, charbroiled oysters, and Chilean Sea bass. Steaks are good here but seafood is outstanding.

I've had a good experience
I've had a good experience at Taps almost everytime. There's only been one bad experience & the manager did take action. It's just unfortunate I took my brothers there during that visit so they never want to go back. I've been back several times w/no regrets.
So happy they have a Gluten-Free menu, this makes it so much easier to dine hear instead of being a challenge.

Took care of a large group
Great food, Great bar and handle my daughters after graduation dinner of 8 like pro's. Bloody Mary was amazing. Large variety of great food from steaks to seafood. Dessert variety was a nice change.

Great food but service slow
Food was very good though it does take some time. 45 minutes is the general point of concern when food not there unless doing cocktails and apps. The section we were in had only a server so water and refills were on him which is where the service suffered a bit. It looked as if there was plenty of staff but the contact by the serving staff was minimal except to take order and bring the check.
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
From the minute I stepped foot in this place I was extremely impressed!! The staff was amazing and the food was ridiculous!! I just wanted to keep eating and eating!! I had the salmon, my sister had the pork and my niece had the steak-we were all eating off each others plates-it was my birthday and my sis ordered a red velvet cake for dessert.out waiter brings the cake tables use & frosts it at the table and places a bunch of fresh berries all over it..it was divine!!

Dinner with friends.
It was our first time (4 of us) at Taps. It was a nice find. We will go there again. The crab was excellent! All had a great time.

Great Anniversary Dinner
This is my wife's favorite restaurant and we were not disappointed this visit. The food was excellent, we were seated immediately and great service. I couldn't ask for anything more.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food & service was outstanding. Our waitress was sharp & friendly. Looking foward to dining at Taps again.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Friday night reservation a must. Seated within 5 minutes of our arrival. Alex, our very polished waiter, greeted us and immediately laid out the menu, pricing and specials. My dare and I shared a bottle of wine from an extensive wine list while we enjoyed salmon with prawns. During the meal, Andrew the executive chef stopped by the table for a friendly chat which heightened our dining experience. The very large room was noisy, but didn't detract from our meal. We will be back.

Love Taps in Corona
My husband and I celebrated our Anniversary here at Taps in Corona and we really had a great time. We just Love this place!

Brunch over the Taps!
This was our 2nd time and we invited another couple....What can I say, food was great, service was over the top! We definitely will be back again!

Awesome Brunch selection
We love coming here for special occasions for there Sunday brunch. We come as a family and they're always very welcoming! The food is wonderful and the service is amazing!!!! We never have any complaints when coming to TAPS.

Great Entrées, Mediocre Appetizer
Ordered the Filet Mignon Trio - delicious. The mashed potatos were glorious and the asparagus was cooked to a perfectly. Enjoyed my date's Beef Tenderloin with Udon as well, but could have been a little less spicy.
The desserts were great as well - creme brulee was on point, as was the red velvet. Not a fan of their twist on bananas foster - french vanilla ice cream is a must for that dish - although the bread pudding was a nice addition.
The refommended appetizer was less than worthy of our attention. We ordered a sampler of sorts - asian ribs, calamari, and prawns - and the flavors were convulted by a sauce mix that seemed to creep across the whole platter.
Service was personable, but less-than-attentive at times. Will come back.

Cant wait to go again so great
Our Server, Roxanne, i believe, was absolutely great. With 3 couples to juggle she did a great job making sure we were taken care of. We ordered our drinks and appetizers, and they were both absolutely top notch. Once we ordered our entrees we did wait a while longer than i would have liked, but the service made up for it. Atmosphere and decor were very nice as well, not to mention that the option to order a cigar for desert was a surprise well indulged in.

Great as always!
Food and service always excellent here. This is our fourth or fifth visit to this location (been to the Brea location a couple of times as well, we like the Dos Lagos location better), a favorite for birthdays. Here for my wife's birthday this visit. First time ordering the surf and turf, she was stunned by the huge size of the lobster tail!
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been going once a month for over a year, to the Sunday brunch . We have never been disappointed . They vary the food choices occasionally so there is no chance to get bored with same menu all the time.. They have always filled my request for seating areas. I recommend to everyone!

One of our favorites
We have been dining at Taps for a number of years, and it never disappoints. This visit was no exception. We often choose Taps for special dining occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. But we hadn't been there for a while and decided to go after we'd gone to a movie. It was as good as it's always been. We had excellent food and service. It is definitely a favorite and we will return.

Our Server Chris
Chris was fantastic! He even chimed in on some movie trivia we had. My husband and I have 2 adult children and their significant others accompanied us, and I must say even they were laughing at Chris. We celebrated My husband's birthday and Taps was his place of choice! No regrets and we will be back for sure. Everything about the night was wonderful and we are so grateful to have been able to celebrate my husband with such class.

First Timer - Special Occassion
We celebrated our 15-year wedding anniversary Sunday. Our waitress was TOP NOTCH! She made us feel very special, made sure to explain everything when we had questions, didn't seem annoyed at all by our questions/needs. My husband had the sea bass which was beyond fabulous. I had the seafood sampler plate which had a sample of 3 of their seafood dishes (sea bass, mahi mahi and shrimp christopher) - it was also very good but I didn't really care for the drunken mahi mahi as it was a bit spicy for my taste. We were given a creme breule for dessert with a message "Happy Anniversary" for free and we ordered the soufflet, both of which were amazing! We will return to this place again for our next special occasion.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I went to Taps for our anniversary celebration. I can't enough good things about it - the service was AMAZING and the food was DELICIOUS. Thank you for making our celebration special.

This is one of the best restaurants in California.

Another Awesome Experience at Taps!
Taps is our ultimate date night hot spot! The ambiance, food and service are the absolute best. Our server Chris has never steered us wrong. His suggestions have always been right on. The ribeye with the calamari Provençal is life changing!
Thank you Taps.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was fantastic, but more importantly, the service was outstanding. Our waitress was very attentitive and extremely knowledgeable about the restaurant menu. She recommended items for us that turned out to be wonderful. It was a great evening, thank you Taps!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
TAPS always reliable!
The food is always fresh & deliciously prepared. The service is always friendly & attentive. Make a reservation since they are always busy!!

Brunch at taps dos Lagos
Our brunch was delicious! The mimosas were great!
Unlimited mimosas even better! The array of food
Was great. My favorite breakfast food was their
French toast. Everyone in our party had a favorite!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was delicious! Very attentive waitress and Manager was very friendly and we loved that he took the time to talk to us.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overpaid and under delivered.
We go to TAPS for a great experience. Unfortunately that was not the case. We had a less than attentive waiter and it took a very long time four our food. When the bill is just under $200 for 2 adults, 2 kids and no alcohol you should expect a better experience. The manager was advised so we hope this was an isolated experience. We will give it one more try as long as we don't get the same waiter.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
I took my girlfriend there for the first time and she loved it, when the chef brought up the food it was fantastic.
The food was so well I don't think there is a word for it, spectacular
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Taps did a very good job following my special request in the online reservation. This was a 2nd date and they set us up with a great table. Our waitress was attentive but patient, while we talked and never made us feel rushed. Even long after everyone else had left the patio section where we were sitting, they gave us enough privacy to finish getting to know each other.
The wine was very good and the food excellent! The covered walkway just outside the back of the restaurant, that went around the lake, was a perfect way to end a dinner date.

Compared to last time
Although I would characterize it as very good, it didn't match up to the first experience we had there a year or so ago.
First, it was billed as a "Jazz Brunch" but there were no musicians, just the music feed. Previously they had jazz groups on site playing while we ate and we could walk around and stop and watch them play for a moment.....a very nice touch.
Second, the food selection was not as abundant as in the past. There were no eggs offered except Benedict and, while nice, I felt there should have been an omelet bar or other choices. In fairness, there was a pasta station and oyster bar which were very good. The $32 price was a bit steep as there are many other places to compete for my dollar that offer a better experience.
