    Love this place for brunch so took hubby to birthday dinner. The chairs at the bar and on the high top we sat at are very uncomfortable/awkward. No place to put purses or sweaters for the ladies. Our server was very nice, but kind of inattentive. The restaurant wasn't very busy so not sure what was going on there. We had eaten apps and waited a good 20 minutes before we could flag her down to ask her if we could order dinner. She never stayed put in one place long enough for us to order more drinks etc. Apparently the chef likes to over spice food so when it says spicy, it means burn tastebuds off tongue. One friend left his whole plate untouched-the dish he ordered wasn't labeled spicy on menu. Go for brunch. Fried pickles are delish!

    My husband and I went to TAP late on a Thursday night. The calamari appetizer was greasy and badly in need of salt. I had the butcher steak which was fine nothing spectacular, my husbands pork shank, however was spectacular! The drinks were extremely small, over priced and lackluster. I expect there to at least be fresh muddled fruit in drinks at that size and price point. The layout of the restaurant is awkward especially the location of the restrooms. Overall it was fine not great not horrible.

    This used to be a great gastropub, but yesterday was not good at all. I waited 5 mins for the valet to show up to get my car. We waited another 10 mins inside for someone to greet us. (No hostess was available). It took the server almost all night for her to become some what friendly. And the food less than desirable.

    In spite of tables too close together, we managed to have an acceptable business lunch. Service is inattentive and offhand. The patio will be a reason to go back once the temperature plummets under 90.

    When I arrived for a noon reservation, I asked that they send my lunch companion to the table upon arrival. I was seated at the far end of the first floor and couldn't see new arrivals. After 20 or so minutes, my friend found me at the table and said that she had been seated upstairs since @ noon. She had left clear instructions upon arrival including our names and to please direct me to the table. There was NO communication among servers and hostesses (if there was a designated hostess). Also, we had to ask for ice tea three times before it arrived. Food was great, however, and it arrived promptly.

    We had no idea what to expect from Tap; but it was outstanding. A wonderful selection of beers, especially impressed with the selection of drafts. The food was delicious. We tried a variety of items, and everything was seasoned perfectly - so many great flavors. Especially impressive: the fried pickles (made with sweet pickles) and served with a jalapeno dip; the braised pork shank - so tender and flavorful; the jalapeno mac & cheese - the absolute best ever! Our server was very helpful and friendly.

    The food was very good...while the menu was limited it was diverse. We had no trouble finding something to suit us from the choices available. I had the gnudi and it was outstanding! I especially loved the limas and peas that were served with it. If you are looking for a no meat meal this is a winner! My husband had the fish and chips and, although it was a little bready, it was cooked properly and was very flavorful. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio. The weather was perfect!

    tap used to be a great place to get a craft beer and a decent meal on one of the best patios in midtown. now its just very mediocre. the one shining star is the food, and still the patio, but everything else is a hot mess. before we ordered anything, we were told that half the taps were down, at the beer place. then, we ordered salads and an entree each, both showed up at the same time. we turned away the entree only to be later served the same food that was under a heat lamp for 10-15 minutes. bad form all the way around. this used to be a great place, but unfortunately the great food and patio can't save it.

    Solid gastro pub in midtown. We sat outside and did not mind the traffic going by, but some might. The patio is not right no peachtree, it is situated a bit further back. Their burger was amazing. When it was delivered to the table next to us, I almost did not order it because of how understated it looked. What a mistake that would have been, it was amazing and one of the best I have had in the city.

    Dined on 4/20/2014
    We did an Easter brunch at TAP. We chose it because it was the only space available at 11AM that wasn't already reserved, which is understandable now. We've been to TAP before for dinner and drinks and it's great - this review is particular to brunch. The service was good, interior was excellent, and overall the "experience" was good - but the food was lacking. In Atlanta, Brunch is an art. TAP could improve here. The scrambled eggs were much less impressive than I can make at home. The Tuna and Kale salad was not good - in fact the greens were not kale at all. The biscuits were fine but not great. The huevos rancheros were the best part of the meal. Brunch in ATL is too good elsewhere for a return trip to TAP.

    The service here was good and friendly - food was just OK - not bad - but nothing exceptional. We were seated on the highest level which was quite warm as it seems the heat concentrated here. It is close to several downtown attractions which makes it an easy walk. I will probably eat here again when in the area but will not be a destimation for dining - OK for beer and drinks.

  • St. Patty's Brunch
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 3/15/2014
    We went to TAP for Brunch the day of the St. Patrick's day parade. Even though we showed up 15 minutes late (traffic) and it was absolute craziness due to the parade, we still got a great table and excellent service. The food was good, the drinks were good, the service was good. We requested outdoor seating so we could watch the parade, but were late and probably one of a million people making that request so the host did his best and got us a window seat, then opened the window/door and basically got us exactly what we wanted. Only negative - the bathrooms. Though they are super cute, why must there be only 2 stalls in the bathroom of a restaurant that probably seats 200?

    Made us sit in restaurant Siberia....upstairs. Kitchen is up there too. Odd because restaurant wasn't crowded. Didn't ask for another table, because didn't want to stress my date. Took 12-15 mins for apps. Really? I COULD SEE THE KITCHEN. They weren't slammed. Apps should be more like 7mins. Food was not seasoned and greasy. Oil temp too low. Entrees were OK. Not bad. Not great. Above average.Again, needed more seasoning..Fish was well cooked and Lamb Ragu in the pasta was well cooked. Service was good. Attentive but not too overbearing Knew the menu. They gave him too many tables (a ten top AND all of us by himself?) Was great about getting us in and out due to our symphony tickets. Overall? Didn't expect too much. Didn't disappoint.

    I planned on going to TAP for my birthday in late February several weeks ahead. I hadn't been there since the summer, so I checked the menu onlinew to make sure the vegetarian and vegan options that the restaurant's main appeal for me were still being served. Ten minutes before leaving to meet my family for my dinner reservation, I checked the menu one last time, just in case there were any last-minute changes, which to my relief, there were none. Upon arrival at my table, I opened the menu and immediately noticed all the changes. The waiter informed me that the menu was changed that very day, and nothing from the old menu was avaliable upon request. The waiter explained that there was a new chef and the menu had not yet been chaned online

    Went for valentines day with my lady, didn't get silverware or water until 45 minutes in. Wanted to re-order some desert after getting the bill but service didn't come back to our table. Food was alright, except the salsa + chips felt really out of place like from some suburban living room football party. Beer + cocktail list was fine, probably better to treat this place as a bar than a restaurant.

    Have been here several times when visiting town. Decent food; a certain notch above bar food but not quite to the gastro level.

    We had made a reservation and arrived on time. We were seated immediately and sat, and sat, and sat. After almost 15 minutes no one had even approached our table. I had to flag down a server and ask if anyone was assigned to our table. This server took our drink order and then a second server (not the one we had originally been told was our server, but never appeared) waited on us. Once he took over everything went smoothly. Our food was delicious and served in a very timely manner. From that point we enjoyed everything. The restaurant has a very active bar and it was very busy.
