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.

Our waitress Kim was amazing. I loved my impossible burger a lot. My cheesecake was too mussy. Cheesecake should be firm. Our coffee was weak and bitter.

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.

Nice place. We ended up eating both lunch and dinner here. The brussel sprouts and queso are good. The Impossible burger was average and the risotto with a tomato purée was okay. Good drinks, limited wine list, nice people.

Their food and service are always excellent. One of the things that we really like is that they will personalize your salad, adding additional things you want, if you request them to do so.

Beet salad- excellent
Burgers- pretty standard; good. Very skimpy on fries.
Impossible burger- overcooked, still good taste
Service- quite terrible; we had to get up a take glasses, and plates from another table and repeatedly ask for water. Server had too many tables so was abrupt, and runner was rude when dropping off plates. I don’t understand how service like this is tolerated amongst other patrons. I would not recommend.

Food was good but a bit overpriced. As a chef, I feel they are trying to be gourmet but with casual surroundings. Be one or the other. Casual night out should not be 25.00 for fried chicken. Burger was great, fries a bit soggy. Server never followed up for more ketchup or refill water. Did try to sell dessert. Too loud for high end, too pricey for casual. Choose....

Extremely small portions for the price point. Food came out cold. Old fashioned not made correctly, sugar was not mixed and had settled at the bottom of the glass.

We enjoyed the tomato soup and burger with fries, but the Impossible burger with vegan cheese tasted burned and was the weakest of items we tried. Also, the Brussels sprouts were over cooked, but had great flavor. Service was excellent.

Great NYE dinner. Food was really good. Service was slow to start but got better. Make it a point to at least as for drink order or get water promptly after sitting people and we would have been happier. Seats near front door are cold. Don't sit there if you are a cold person. Ambiance could have been better - there are neat little candle lights on each table but the batteries were dead in many and the christmas lighting decor went off part way through dinner and never came back on - odd.

Scored a last minute New Year’s Eve reservation as we were passing through Auburn. We were greeted by hostess was supposed to get asparagus but got carrots instead. Was excellent but wd have preferred asparagus. I had one of the best burgers I’ve ever had; excellent t preparation & seasoning of meat. We were too full for dessert. Will definitely return and highly recommend.

Interesting experience. We had heard so much about Tap and Vine. Overall the experience was ok. The service, confirmed our belief that Auburn Restaurant’s does not know how to provide good service. Basic like checking in, not having to remind the server that portions of the meal had not been delivered are areas of needed improvement

The food was ok but overpriced. The desert was a total disaster. The balsamic paired with pumpkin flan type dish was a huge fail.

Great food as usual. Had the roasted brussels sprouts and the fried avocado tacos two of my favorites with a friend who never had either. The only complaint is that they didn’t get my name down as booking my reservation through Open Table but getting in touch with Open Table they “fixed” it for me.
Highly recommend this restaurant.

I got the impossible burger and every time I’ve had it I’ve loved it. The Brussels sprout appetizer is always excellent Two people got the hell of it special and said the gnocchi the tomato sauce wasn’t right for the hell of it but the halibut itself was excellent. One person got the salmon entrée and said it was excellent. Service was great
