Incredibly loud Friday at 7pm through entire dinner..Latino music on steroids, children in the bar area, service outside limited and late. Not a pleasant event...seemed like after work venue, when no one was eating at bar! Would not recommend, this xcept for days when no DJ...

Second visit but still not a huge fan. Understaffed, left to wait at host stand while hostess and staff member talking facing away from door. Went on a Monday night purposely as were told by friends about the half price burgers on Mondays but this was not advertised and had to ask. Seated at a hightop across from restrooms when the place was empty and many more tables available. Started service with the Manager, Chris who was pleasant but forgot my daughters beer and then handed us off to another server from another location (Doral) and she was fine but apparently was filling in for them in a pinch as she had tables outside too and when wanted the check had to wait for her to reappear. Food was good, burgers were decent for half price, chicken in salad leaf appetizer was tasty but meat questionable and ill the following day. Drink was mostly syrup and little alcohol and small. Stick with beer. First time we ate here it was so loud we could not hold a conversation but this time being a Monday night was quiet as few patrons. The lights were dimmed to nearly off at 7:30ish which was ridiculous as did not add to atmosphere in any way. This is a place for burger and beers and to watch football.

My first time there. Liked it very much. Will go back. Loved the Calamari Tower + the salmon tostones.
Good place for happy hour and to watch football on sundays.

Must have table reservations for dinner on Saturdays, which we did, otherwise the waiting is over an hour. Young people at the very crowded bar were standing all over our table, but management didn't seem to mind. More than "energetic," extremely noisy!!! Waitress pleasant, but had too many tables to service, we kept looking for her to refill our drinks. The food is good and prices reasonable. Location in Coral Gables is nice, but must valet because there is no parking nor street meters around. We would go back and recommend it if it wasn't for the overflowing bar crowd and noise level, absolutely no conversation unless you're willing to shout, we couldn't hear each other.

We were there for lunch and the environment was a bit loud, as well as the music, but luckily we were in a corner booth so it turned out to be not too bad. Food was excellent and the servings were generous.

Food was great, I wish they had brunch menu available throughout the week. Checked online and in yelp and there was no mention of brunch menu days and I went there expecting brunch. Our waitress accommodated me and I had waffles and eggs. So I was happy. Greatest service!!!

We tried the Miami Spice menu and it was amazing. The fried calamari and salmon tostones were to die for, and the truffle steak sandwich simply delicious. Super friendly staff and beautiful decor. Loved everything!

The service was not the best. The waitresses seemed overwhelmed and tired. Food was not the best also. We tried some different burgers, and to be honest I had better and cheaper in other places. The place looks cute, yet the noise level is high. Don’t know if I’d be back for dinner. During the day their service is way better!

Whoever designed the layout of the restaurant, needs to change profession. The hostess not friendly, not smiling.That is the first introduction a guest is introduced to when they enter an establishment. Yet, many hostesses miss the importance of that position. We ended up here after reading the best of Coral Cables in a magazine. It was cited the best affordable brunch. I had the impression they served breakfast all day. Silly me. Went around 2PM and felt like I was in a bar. No great tables available. Lots of dead space. Sat outside at a lounge chair with my date for that was the most attractive seating. Both our food was good, fresh and quite large potions but the whole experience left a grainy taste in my mouth. Will not even try there brunch nor ever go back again. Too bad.

The food was pretty good for bar food but, one of our drinks was bery disappointing. I ordered a mojito, it was terrible. If a bartender can't make a good mojito you are in trouble. Its one of those places that unless you are going there for the pick up scene, you won't be going back. Nothing to write home about.

This is the second time we go to Tap 42 and they never disappoint. Started off with the spicy salmon tostones, which were delicious. For my dinner entree, I had Ahí tuna poke salad, which turned out to be more food than I expected. I had it ALL. It was scrumptious.

The tostones appetizer is a must. The trio of beers was perfect to try new ones we hadn’t had before. I even took out the shrimp Mac n cheese for the following day. Coming back soon. Too many dishes to try.

We came with some friends to catch up and celebrate. Restaurant is INCREDIBLY loud - we tried sitting outside hoping it would be better but we still could not hear each other. We ordered the “special” margaritas for National Margarita Day and were very disappointed. They were $8 and the weakest margaritas any of us had ever had, terrible value. We left without ordering food because we were so unhappy with the noise level and the overpriced drinks. We would not return and would not recommend.

The ice cream delight was delicious and the drunken goat may be the best burger I've ever had. Maria, our server, was absolutely amazing!

Service was horrible. There were four of us. One person got their food. The other three got their food when the first was almost done. What is up with that???

The waitress would disappear never bothering to check how we were doing. No one came to refill our water glasses. I finally had to get up and ask someone to please refill our glasses.

Food was ok, but nothing out of this world. Standard fare at prices a little too high for the service and quality.

It is not that I would never go back, but it is not a place that will be at the forefront of my mind to go to.

Very tasty hamburger - seared on the outside and cooked to order. The fries were plentiful but nothing special. Our server was attentive and made a good recommendation as to a new draft beer - Guns and Rose (as in the wine). As with all places of this type, it was very noisy, but we were seated away from the bar and could have a conversation. Our booth seating was comfortable.
