Tap 42 - Aventura
I made reservations a week in advanced for a group of 6. We got to restaurant and was given a table outside in the 100% humidity of South Florida! I asked to be moved inside, they gave us the "forgotten" table. No shows for at least 15 minutes and after we talked to someone that looked like a manager we finally got a waitress. We had to search for our waitress, every 15 minutes, food took forever, and the waitress assigned to our table just came by 2 times. We had to ask a few times for refills. We didn't order more because we were scared of how long she might take with order. When we got our bill - which took another 20 minutes - she had already charged us 18% for her bad service. POSITIVES: We contacted the "real" manager, told her about our experience. She seemed very understanding and apologized. She removed all our soda charges and left it up to us to give whatever we wanted as a tip. As unhappy as the group was, we still gave our waitress 15% because we understand tips are how they make their living but please good service is what gets you to come back to restaurants - PLEASE GIVE GOOD SERVICE!!!
Just awful how hard it is to go to a chain restaurant and have to eat dood already in sauces or coated with stuff you can’t eat. Why can’t they offer fresh salads with field greens not iceberg yummy lettuce that you
Can add your own dressing, veggies uncoated and not so salty. Plain potato options. Everyone does want
High fat and salted foods!
My team and I met at Tap 42 and a few of us had the Miami Spice menu. I really enjoyed the Calamari (appetizer) Salmon Bowl (entree) and ice cream sandwich (dessert). My drink wasn’t as good as I would have liked (Watermelon Spritzer) but overall, my meal was delicious. I plan on taking advantage of the Miami Spice Menu again.
First time at Tap 42 and I will definitely be returning. Our waiter Alex was great! Love Anthony’s personality (another server). Views were good, vibe was nice and food was amazing 😉
Excellent all around! Being a gastro pub, once the lunch crowd settles in the noise level goes up. Both foos and service were great, will be returning.
We followed the Miami Spice menu which was good. The dissappointing side is they cut the portion size of the dessert and appetizer. For $80 I expected a full experience. Waitress was very nice and friendly. Food was ok. If you like to eat, order off the main menu. Same price as the Miami Spice minus the dessert.
We followed the Miami Spice menu and were not disappointed! The food was excellently prepared and didn’t take long to arrive.. our server was extremely pleasant and attended to our needs perfectly! What a great place!
Tables with seats all facing one way are ridiculous. Otherwise a much better experience than the last time I was here. Food and service were good, not great. Typical bar food.
Everything was amazing and delicious food
We went to celebrate my sisters birthday. Our server was great . The food took very long to come .
Our server although very nice was not around a lot.
We asked for extra plates but by the time they brought the plates we ate out food or it would have been cold .
Cenamos muy rico !
The drinks were watered down. Lettuce wraps and Asian slaw was very good as were the Brussel sprouts. The filet mignon sandwich was ok, lacking meat.
The food was delicious and the service was great. Love the decor and ambiance.
Great service and atmosphere. Our waitress, Anna I believe, was friendly. We received our appetizers and drinks promptly as well as our main orders. The drinks were amazing. I had the Gin n' Chronic with CBD oil. The Prohibition burgers were very well made and had good flavor. The place is on the pricey side but hey, its Aventura. One thing I would HIGHLY recommend is making reservations. Place gets packed.
Service was excellent! Kayla was attentive without being intrusive and her bubbly personality was a hit. The superfood salad is always my favorite and it did not disappoint. My ‘adult’ girls love the filet sandwich and always request a fried egg also and get the sweet potato substitution . The guacamole app has such a great texture with the crunchiness of the corn and bacon and is my husband’s fav. My son always orders the chicken with the parmesan truffle fries. I love going to a true gastropub where there is a varied selection for our finicky family of 5 where the food is still healthy and has gourmet flavors, unlike the usual ‘sports /microbrewery venues’.
Andy, your staff both in the front and in the kitchen made up for the last time and our family will continue to frequent Tap 42 at least 3-4 times a month!
Thank you for listening and being attentive to these reviews.
There were three of us. Our waitress was very attentive and polite. We all ordered the chicken and waffles and the food was really good and fresh. It was really cold in the restaurant but that was probably because we were one of the first ones there. We had a great time though.
This was my first time at any Tap42 and I was super excited to try it! Unfortunately my experience wasn't as awesome as I expected. I reserved a table outside a week before going, and we were told we'd have to wait to be seated outside. Then the waitress took ~10-15 min to see us. The food was overpriced, especially for the portion size. We only saw our waitress again at the end of the meal when we wanted the check. Kind of a mediocre meal/experience but I'm glad I tried it.
convenient, easy to get a reservation, and good service. Food was pretty good - to be expected. We had a large party and several of us ordered the Ahi tuna salad. We wished the pieces of tuna were cut smaller but it seemed fresh. The dressing lacked a punch - it was mostly just creamy. The calamari app was very tasty and the kids meals were good quality and portion size.
The food was good so no complaints there. Bottomless mimosas are $25 pp and what you get is a $12 bottle of champagne at the table.
Great food. Great ambiance. Great service from Caitilin. Can’t wait to go back.
Great food and great service
my first time here.. food was great service amazing and the drinks were beautifully made. Great upbeat atmosphere.
The setting is lovely - not too formal or too casual. The food presentation is so eye-catching and the salads we ordered were very tasty. I'll definitely come back to try some different dishes!
No round table for our party of 6-7 to chat
The food and drinks were amazing. The place was very clean and nice.
The food took so long that several managers had to stop by to apologize and offer free desserts and drinks. We didn’t care about free food but just wanted food period. It’s unfortunate as bad service always dampens a family dinner. In addition, the hostess signed us in for our reservation. but then completely forgot about us. She had stated that a table was being cleaned up and pointed it out to me but then proceeded to sit another party of 5 there? Luckily a second very kind hostess took over and made sure we got the text available table and was apologetic which made up for the 1st hostess’s mishap.
The food really is excellent and gastropub is the correct description as the variety of the gourmet selections is outstanding. The guacamole appetizer is fantastic and the superfood salad with salmon is the perfect combination of flavors.
They just need on getting their kitchen staff in order...!
Great experience. Great food. It was during one of the final games so it was nice to enjoy my company and the game at the same time. Will definitely be back again
Great customer service. Overall great experience.
Wonderful drinks and food. Can get very busy though during the weekend dinner hours.
Everything was amazing. One of our orders took a little longer to come out and the manger gave us that meal on the house and also sent out more to take home. All of our food came out fast and hot.
Tap 42 is okay for a quick bite at a neighborhood restaurant. The food is tasty, but a bit heavy on the salt. I had the Mahi which was served with two large slices of tomato. There was no other garnish on the plate which made it look rather ordinary. The salmon was served on a bed of grain which made it look a bit more inviting. The coffee was served lukewarm, and I had to ask three times for some cream. I might go back if I am in the mall, but I certainly wouldn't make a special trip to eat at Tap 42.
Delicious! The chopped salad and dressing was outstanding! Best restaurant for quiet lunch. Great wait staff.
my food was good, but the music was way too loud for a Saturday lunch!!
This is a cool place overall. Don’t expect high quality food though. It’s hit or miss. Depends on the chef I guess. Very young crowd. Good mall lunch option.
Great food and service! My wife and I have not stopped talking about how great the food was!
My family and I always have a great time eating at the outdoors terrace. The food is very good and the staff is friendly. The price is fair.
The food is a amazing and the outside view is breathtaking!
Awesome time. Great safe. Need better directions to park or get there. Overall great experience.
Chicken tenders platter is very good
This was my 3rd time at Tap 42 and as usual the whole experience was excellent. can't wait to go back.
