TAPS Fish House & Brewery
Excellent ExperienceWent for industry night and our service couldn't have gone better. I believe our servers name was Cory.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DayHad A lovely dinner the server was excellent and did a wonderful job for such a busy day.

My wife loves the Chilean Sea Bass -- super tender and flavorful -- it's really a great dish. I usually get Ahi and love that too. The beer selection is very good. Overall, we love going to Taps5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food excellent service!Great ambiance, friendly smiles, and delicious food.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Swiss Army Knife of RestaurantsTAPS has succeeded on many different levels...brewery (of SoCA class may I add) with great balanced beer, oyster bar for a quick nosh before movies, bar scene for causal dinner and friends, and full on table dining service fit for suit & tie. I find the staff is extremely focused here and the management is on point letting the staff know their roles...and by the way they control the room it definitely shows every associate is on their game. Great food and desserts !
The room was quite packed and loud and the servers were able to completely be attentive to the table making the room 'expand' and make your table the star of the show...great kudos to them for that ! All in all will definitely look forward to our next return to TAPS.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disapointed at TapsI took my young adult son and we both enjoyed our dinners. I had the scallops and he had a filet. I eat there several times a year for birthdays and anniveraries. We were late with our reservation but called and they still seated us upon arrival. I have never had a complaint at this restaurant. However unless you pay to valet, the parking is awful. Arrive early and park across Brea Blvd by the movies.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of my "go to"This is one of my "go to" spots in Brea. I love the ambience and the food, service is always solid.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place has really goodThis place has really good food. But unfortunately, feel like it is seafood only like it's name - Taps Fish House. We ordered manilla clams, blue crab dynamite, speck ham to start. Lobster tail is excellent, cooked just right! However, we are quite disappointed with the 16 oz rib eye. The texture of the meat is definitely not USDA prime, but feels like not even USDA choice! Overall still a good place but probably will not order steak again.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food, beer & service!Amazing food, beer & service! I'll be back very soon. The food is definitely worth the money!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, TAPS is our favoriteAs always, TAPS is our favorite dining spot. Chef Manny always accommodates my special requests..Would love it if they put back the regular top sirloin on the menu instead of the wagu beef. But always love Taps!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI thought this restaurantI thought this restaurant was fantstic. I had the Chilean sea bass and it was delicious. I also had the steamed Manila clams which were delicious as well. The ambiance was great, not too loud so we were able to visit.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNice LunchVery friendly & quick service. Very accomadating! Had a nice b-day suprise creme brulee! Yum:)4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service!Everything was great. I would have provided 5 stars except that they sat us closest to the kitchen which was not advised when calling to confirm reservations.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMeverything about Taps haseverything about Taps has given my family and i nothing short of excellence. the food, the service, the enviroment, and location was worth every penny on our pricey bill. we will come back for more, and refer this place to our family and friends! thank you!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHad an 8PM Sunday night reservationHad an 8PM Sunday night reservation. We were greeted by a pleasant employee and seated early. Nice table at a nice place. Unfortunately, kitchen had run out of the Drunken Mahi Mahi, the Chilean Seabass, The Salmon dinner dish, and the Prime Rib. Lesson learned, go earlier or go somewhere else.
The service was excellent, as usual. The food we did end up ordering was tasty and we enjoyed our evening. Would recommend this place still as it is not my first time there (the food outage hiccup was my first) and the food/service is always very good.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch!Friends recommended TAPS for brunch and it was everything they said it was. 2 thumbs up!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!The food was very good, as usual. Our server was very nice. We overheard the server at the table next to us tell them about the soufflé, and since we were celebrating my husband's birthday, we were going to order one. Our server never told us about it and we forgot about it until it was too late. We mentioned it to the server. As we were paying our bill, our server noticed the birthday card on the table and rushed off and brought my husband a birthday creme brûlée to make up for it. It was very nice.
It's a great place to go for a special occasion.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was okay exceptEverything was okay except one of the sandwiches came with a piece of wire inside. The manager immediately replaced the sandwich.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience. Good oddGreat experience. Good odd and great service.
