Food and service was AMAZING as usual. Been to Tap a few times, and never disappointed once! I Would totally recommend this hidden gem to anyone!

Neighbourhood dining at its finest
Quaint fine dining restaurant. Quality sourced food, usually local. Each meal individually cooked to your liking. I had their fish, it was cooked to perfection; moist melted in my mouth. Great appies. Appeals to adult dining.

Four ladies were dining on
Four ladies were dining on Saturday evening. Three of the meals were delicious. There was an issue with one of the meals but as soon as the waiter was made aware another meal was offered. When the lady declined saying she was fine an appetizer was provided to her. The meal in question was removed from the bill. We all left happy and satisfied.

We have tried to get in Taps twice before and were turned away without reservations but it was worth the wait. The service and ambiance was very good and both our appies and entrees were fantastic. The rack of lamb was perhaps the best that I have ever had and I make a pretty good rack!!! The sauce was very different and unbelievably delicious, with a tomato and olive mixture that tasted like nothing I have before!! The home made fettucine and sauce was also excellent. We will definitely be going back as we live close by. Great restaurant!

Chef Alistair Veen never fails
Chef Alistair Veen never fails to deliver. Always fresh, always in season, delicious, with layers of flavour and tastes coming thru each bite. This time, fresh, seasonal spot prawns, served with a reduced watermelon sauce, with fresh horseradish. Absolutely wonderful

Warm friendly ambience right
Warm friendly ambience right from the chef's greetings to the knowledgeable and experienced wait staff to the enjoyment of some great tapas, great wine selection and very good entrees. Patio is large and if necessary guests are provided with blankets and overhead heaters.

food was good, but portions much smaller than we are use to when we go to a tapas restaurant - while we were comfortable when we left, about an hour later the "younger adults" were already hungry again. Have been here for lunch numerous times and food is always great - but different menu for lunch. Would recommend it, but not if you are looking for an inexpensive meal -

Nice neighborhood restaurant
This is in a small shopping area of a housing area. From the outside, you don't even know it's a upscale restaurant. There aren't many selection in the menu, but the food they produced are very good. They use fresh ingredient. This is a nice alternative to other chain casual restaurant.

I don't think I would use Open Table for this restaurant again. When I did there was two times available. 6:00 and 7:45. When we walked in the restaurant at 6:00 it was empty. We would have preferred 7:00 and probably could have had this time if we had called. However we had a lovely drink on the patio and all was good.

We went to Tap for out anniversary dinner. It was a Tuesday night and quiet. It is one of our favourite local spots. The baked Brie is a great starter to share, and then we shared chili prawns, gnocchi and
Risotto . We tend to just graze on tapas because we can never make up out mind so it is just easier to pick! Service is always great and the owner is very knowledgeable about wine! Really worth a visit.

The best patio dining
The Outdoor patio was fantastic. We were entertained by the very impressive Tony, and Diane playing the keyboard while singing soulful jazz music. They really made it a special evening.
Hubby's beef Surloin was cooked exactly as requested at medium rare, and my chicken dish was super moist with a mushroom reduction adding even more flavour. The meal was complete with an amazing strawberry rhubarb cheesecake.
Summer patio dining at its best.

We found this establishment via the web and cannot tell how much we enjoyed the total experience. The food was amazing and the wine list hit the spot. Excellent service and the chef/ proprietor was without a doubt a craftsman of his craft in the food arena.
We just did the tapas but if that is any indication of what to expect in the mains section we cannot wait. The scallops and prawns were saviory with a sence of The Caribbean . Cannot wait till our next visit.
Great local find!

Thursday Night Out
We had an early dinner (4:30pm) becasue we had another activity early in the evening. How nice to find a good resturant open at this time of day and it is tucked away right in our neighbourhood. The food was great however the menu is limited. The wine was very good and the service was good as well. I would definately go again. Really good food.

Hidden gem in South Surrey
Looking for a restaurant in SouthSurrey /Whiterock and found one that had good reviews on Trip Advisor. Was not disappointed! Excellent find and will be back

We will be back!
A friend recommended this hidden gem to us and we have heard other rave reviews so we were happy to finally had the chance to check it out tonight. The room is quaint and cozy with an open style kitchen. Our server was very knowledgeable and was able to make excellent recommendations. We started with a gin cocktail called the French 75; it was fabulous. For appetizers we had a unique Caesar Salad and the prawns and scallops; both very tasty. The owner helped us choose a wine that would pair nicely with our entrees, the ribeye and the lamb. It was nice not to have to travel downtown for a great dining experience! We will be back.

Food was exceptionally good. One could not call it a romantic or scenic location, but for a nice quiet dinner, it hits the spot.
Wine list surprisingly expensive, beer selections not great.

I like to go to Tap Restaurant with out of town guests and close friends with whom I like to visit and catch up with news. Tap is an ideal place for this as it is small, never overcrowded, and the noise level is low which all enhance the ability to converse without raising one's voice.
The menu is great and the entrees are flavorful and tastefully presented. The portions are smaller which I appreciate. The restaurant is in my area of residence so I am able to arrive in five minutes.
I do not dine out very often but when I do have an invitation to suggest a place to eat, I have recommended Tap Restaurant. Thank you,

Food was excellent, service was okay. They had live music which was a little too loud we found ourselves having to talk very loudly. The music is nice, but should be background music. They didn't have my favorite dessert so I was very disappointed at that. We eat there quite often and would recommend it.
