Food was delicious and service was fantastic! I would highly recommend this restaurant for a casual or special event. You have to try the Brussels sprouts, they’re amazing 👍

Went to Tap and Vine for our 5 year anniversary. Made reservations well in advance but the hostess tried to squeeze us in between two other busy tables. I asked if we could get a better seat as it was our anniversary and we wanted something a little more private. She seemed frustrated and a little put out that we wanted a better location. We did get moved to a great spot. The waitress was great. The food was great and we even had our Crème Brulee dessert on the house. We enjoy coming here and will be back.

I took my fiancé there for Valentines Day. It’s a nice walk up venue with a sports bar feel. The food is fantastic and the waitress went out of her way to make sure we were taken care of. We were impressed that the owner came to our table to chat at the end of our meal.

We love this place very much. I have lived in Auburn for 20 years and this is by far the best restaurant I have seen here since then. We love it so much we even had our wedding reception here. The waitstaff is friendly and attentive, and management is always on the floor making sure the guest have everything they need. We would highly recommend dining here

We were seated in the bar area which is very noisy. We don’t drink, so we never like to be seated in a bar. The food was good. The Brussels sprouts are delicious but way too many for just one person. They should offer a 1/2 order, as my husband doesn’t like Brussels sprouts.

Tap and Vine makes a great grilled cheese sandwich with soup. Also I love the brussel sprouts. One of our favorite spots in Auburn.

We had a very good experience at Tap & Vine. Four of us had lunch and the Brussel Sprouts appetizer was amazing! The cocktails were unique and delicious. Our lunch, for each of us, got a five star rating. We will definitely be back. Our server was the icing on the cake!

What a great experience to work into on a cold & rainy night. The service couldn't have been more warm & inviting. An outstanding, compact menu with plenty of options for the wide range (carnivore to vegan) of eating options in our party. The crab mac & cheese was amazing, the brussel sprouts were delicious, everyone loved what they ordered. Can't wait to return!

The flavors of the dishes were lovely, best fried chicken we have ever had. The only improvement would be to use less salt in the dishes, we will request this next time we dine there. Overall the best dining experience we have had in Auburn. Even though it was Friday night the noise was at a reasonable level, no blaring music that you had to yell over, we could actually have a conversation without raising our voices much over a normal level. The service was very nice, our waiter was attentive and solicitous without being overbearing, just the right touch. We will return!

Tap and Vine has become our favorite local restaurant. I could eat those damn brussel sprouts everyday! Atmosphere is always perfect, just enough hustle bustle to engage you without overwhelming the senses. Love that place and now..... I just want my brussel sprouts and beer again!

The food at Tap & Vine was very good. Macaroni with cheese and crab was excellent and very rich. My wife and I could have split an order of this and been happy and satisfied. The tacos were excellent as well.

The prices were maybe just a little too steep for the experience.

We went for a family dinner and ate in the "Gathering Room". Loved the separateness and ambiance of the space. The restaurant location is difficult to find, but once there it's great. Our server Brett was really, really nice but could use more training for the price per plate. The food was great except for my small cesar salad with fried chicken. There was way too much dressing and the chicken chunks should have been sliced thinner and placed nicely on top in my opinion. Also I wished we had been informed that the gratuity was included in the bill, because I wasnt paying attention and added another 20%. When we realized this, we had to drive 20 minutes back. All in all a great new spot and with some fine tuning it will be a 5 star winner!

I really wanted to like this local restaurant a mile from my home. My wife and I ordered the beet salad. It was drenched in dressing. We ordered the chicken. I sent mine back to be cooked when the chicken was very red and bloody near the bone. The waiter attempted to excuse the undercooking by explaining that the chicken was cooked in the sous-vide method. OK, great - but the chicken still has to be cooked! I will say we were offered a complimentary dessert, which didn’t compensate for my wife and I not eating at the same time as they re-prepared my order. Also, for a restaurant named “Tap and Vine” I expected the wine list to be more substantial. My final recommendation is to request a booth or table at least 40 feet away from the door - otherwise you’ll get a nice blast of cold air every time the door opens. There’s sort of a grace period while new restaurants get established- but unfortunately the clock has almost struck 12 o’clock on this disappointing place.

We have loved tap and vine. But the past two times we have been there the food has just been okay. The restaurant was not busy but we had made a reservation for a booth. They squeezed us into a booth more made for 2 not three adults. There were plenty of larger ones open. Then we knew more about ciders offered than the waitress. Lastly we ordered the $30 pork belly and it was AWFUL I mean one of the worst meals I've ever eaten. It was try, tough and tasteless. The look "$6" off our bill but that barely made a dent especially since we only ate about 3 bites. Dont think I'll return. Its a shame considering this was a normal spot I brought friends and business clients.

Tap and Vine is a great place for food and drink. Diverse food selection, with a full bar, and moderate in price. Each time I have been there, even on weekdays, it has been pretty busy so I wouldn't count on a quick in and out dining experience. The servers and staff are very friendly and nice. It has a fun, friendly vibe.

What an amazing find that we just stumbled upon. The fried brussel sprouts, avocado tacos and kale salad were excellent. And the dessert was awesome!
Great selection of beers on tap and wine. The owners spent some time and money on the interior and it shows. Our server was so sweet.
We highly recommend this great restaurant.

Had a great family meal on New Year's Eve. Food and service were great. This was our second visit and we weren't disappointed. Generous portions. We all loved the brussel sprout appetizer and the beet salad. Entrees were large enough that we couldn't find and brought home leftovers. I had the fried chicken, which was fantastic. We will definitely be back.

Sunday night dinner with Mom. Brussels and beet salad were a bit soggy. Beets were not the star of the plate. Grilled cheese with pumpkin soup and pork belly with super creamy mashed potatoes were excellent. Although it was my first visit, and wait staff was friendly (although a bit smart aleky) my mom noted no female servers on staff after multiple visits. Humm...

We were four, we had cocktails to start, my husband had "Breaking Bud" beer, an IPA on tap that he loved. We all started with one of the best beet salads I've had anywhere in the world. Truly excellent. One had the prawn appetizer as her main, delicious...I had the Big Girl Cheese Sandwich with pumpkin soup, a huge portion, decadent, and both boys had the Fried Chicken. My husband regretted not asking if he could have white meat but did enjoy the thigh/leg. Our Bay Area guests who are foodies and well traveled declared it was excellent and they look forward to coming again. We are more local and will certainly come back and soon.

I loved the Impossible Burger (vegetarian) and my husband had the dungeness crab mac and cheese. It's divine. My niece loved the avocado tacos and my nephew loved the grown up grilled cheese.
