Beautiful experience. Great food. Very efficient service. Accommodated all our requests. Being a vegetarian, I wasn’t short on options and all preparations were delectable.

Very nice room set up for our group. It is hard to get use to the Social Distancing, but this resturant had ready links to their online menu. Some of our party has issues with their internet speed, which gave them issues when trying to view their menu. There isn’t a very large selection of entrees, but the food is all pretty great.

A friend and I came here for the first time to have dinner.
We were both extremely disappointed with the quality, or lack there of on the food.
Most of it, appetizers and especially the entrees, looked and tasted frozen or not prepped in house.
For $200+ bill, it was a complete waste. The upside was our server was nice and they had a good wine list to offer.
I’ll stick to midtown/sac eateries.

Wine list needs updating. Of the 3 different trips the server made to find the bottles I ordered, none were the vintage listed on the menu. I wound up settling for something that was an 18 rather than a 16.
Seems this place may be more tap than vine.
Avocado tacos were OK.

This was a birthday dinner for my wife and our daughter gave us a gift certificate as she knows we love this place. This was actually the first time we were a little disappointed. I ordered jambalaya and never found the octopus, and whatever the chef called crab was not crab by any means. It tasted fishy and gnocchi texture. I pulled them all out and set them aside and reported it to the chef . We love your shashito peppers, but they have been eliminated as an appetizer. so we ordered ceviche but the wontons fell apart when trying to eat it. Recommend serving the ceviche in a bowl with chips on the side. Our waitress was so sweet and apologized.
She made it right by us the best she could.

The food wasn't very good. Two of our burgers were overcooked. The chicken on the tacos was dry and flavorless. The wings were good. The ambiance was rather stark. We may try again once the restaurants have had time to readjust after the COVID closing.

It was great to go back to Tap and Vine after quarantine. They have many social distancing protocols in place so we felt very comfortable - wait staff wore masks, ordering was done through a QR code on our phones (which brought up the menu - no paper/plastic menu to touch), there was a pager device on the table, there was a check in procedure with a temperature check, and there was plexi-glass dividers between tables. The menu has been changed with a few new additions. We had a lovely time and appreciate Addison and his team making this a relaxed, safe, enjoyable experience.

They have really adapted quickly to the new rules around dining out. They have the most updated way of ordering from your table using your phone and minimizing contact with staff and other patrons. Very impressive. Nice outdoor area with plenty of space. Food was great.

Basic pub fare. Not high quality but fair. Fries taste out of a frozen bag of gourmet restaurant Sysco foods. Soup was very good. Salad overly coated in dressing. Burger was okay, not going to get it again. Seasame wings very good. I am sure taco night is best overall.

We moved to Auburn just a few months ago and have been here multiple times, including my birthday dinner! I never get tired of the brussels sprouts which really surprises me :) Impossible burger and salmon are some of our favorite entrees.

Food was OK.
Noise level was very high.
We asked for a booth several times, was told they were reserved, but we were there an hour and a half and neither booth was seated. Therefore I won't be going back...

As usual, the food and drink were excellent at T&V. If there is one thing I would change at T&V it's the awful booths with L-shaped seating. Whoever thought these were a good idea? As there were only two in my party, we were sentenced to a booth. It's an awkward arrangement for conversation and one person has to face a wall. To make it worse, the booth we were seated in had lost all of its padding and it felt like I was sitting on iron bars. We asked to be relocated and ended up in a booth at the very end with a great view of the lady's room whenever someone entered or left. Even then with the thin padding on the seat and the upright back, comfort was minimal.

We had dinner this past week at Tap & Vine. We tried the Arancini appetizer - very good. For a main course, we had the Jambalaya which was excellent. I always judge a Jambalaya in part by how the shrimp turns out, which in this case was perfect. We also had a Caesar salad - it was good, but not the traditional Ceasar I'd expected. Service and ambiance were both excellent. I'll definitely return.

We have loved this place since it opened. Two times now we have invited guests to join us and have been disappointed in the service. This last reservation, apparently the restaurant was short staffed. It took a bit for our server to greet us and take our drink order, it took the bar forever to make our three drinks, then it took a long time for the food to come out. I asked for a salad instead of fries, but fries were delivered, and the salad arrived after we were all done. The server did her best to make us happy. None of it was her fault. She offered a free dessert, which we did not want, so she took our delicious Brussels sprouts off our bill. So, overall, food was really good, and our server did her best in a crummy situation, but seems like overall staffing is not what it used to be. Not sure we'll be back.
