The service was terrible and this is not the first time I have experienced this. They were not busy and there was no excuse. The food was just ok, as I ordered a steak sandwich that had truffle sauce and I did not care for the flavor. We also ordered the truffle Mac and cheese and we did not enjoy it. The sliders and the sweet potato fries were very good.

The only reason I did not give this restaurant 5 Stars was that it is hard to tell if a restaurant is "Outstanding" when you are just going for lunch and having a salad, as excellent as the salads were. Was it "Very Good"? Absolutely. Going at lunch time it was very quiet but because of the area it is located, I can just imagine the liveliness at night. Another plus during lunch is that they valid parking for 2 hours.

I definitely would go back.

Tap is one of our neighborhood gems. The food is always good and the portions generous and the price is right. Service usually is good but lately we end with the same waitress who does not make a great job.
We love the fact that is super pet friendly.

When approaching the place I was concerned about flying creatures on the patio, I didn’t see one at all. The service was very good even if the staff was short, my waitress came by about every 10 minutes to check on me. She was exceptional and her humor was great..She provided that type of service that makes you spend money on drinks and food..Exceptional! The food is upscale Bar Food, please don’t take this as a negative..it was extremely good...I ordered the Chicken and Waffles. The chicken was seasoned very well, the waffles were so tasty you really don’t need the maple syrup provided. Pricing was comparable to the area, not bad at all. Would I return? Yes, without a doubt!

First time we have a disappointing lunch at this Tap. Is our place to go in the neighborhood, always good food, well serve, super pet friendly. Not this time, grill salmon tasted like it was cooked on a grill meat pan, portion usually generous was small, server was super slow and brought us our drinks all wrong. I hope this was something unusual and not the beginning of the end.

Absolutely terrible! Reserved an area for my party and they were unsympathetic as it was raining and guedt were delayed. They had to scramble later to find us chairs, no tables which was embarrassing. They gave us 3 servers, one was high & o e just rude AF. Don't have a party there!!! They served food late and took lonv bri ging out cold food and watered down drinks! First & last time ever going! My Graduation party ruined....Adult graduate from Barry!! A huge deal just ruined!

I have been to Tap 42 two times now. The food is always delicious. The menu has something for everyone. The Mahi is superb and the Drunken Goat burger is to die for. Great outdoor patio area and bar. The music is a bit loud but okay for those who dont mind an energetic vibe. Our food always takes a while to come out to the table though, that is my only complaint. However, overall it is a great atmosphere, excellent food, and friendly service.

We had our friends birthday and we were 11. Which apparently many restaurants don’t want to do and we had no problems at all at Tap 42. From reservations to paying they took care of in the best way. Service was amazing with Marianna and prices were fair. We are definitely going back!

We arrived a bit earlier than our reservations and were seated 40 minutes after reservation time. We were not even offered an apology. The service in this restaurant continues to decrease with every visit.

We were a party of 15 celebrating a friends birthday. Our waitress was really niece. She was great but a few of us had to wait for a long time for our food. We noticed that the restaurant wasn’t busy at all. We have no idea why it took so long to get our food. Some of us got it right away but others had to wait for a long time and it started with just a simple calamari appetizer. Nothing difficult to prepare.

The truffle filet sandwich is absolutely amazing. I’m sure there’s lot of great stuff on the menu, I just never want to bypass what has to be the best item on the menu to try it.

This was our first visit to Tap 42 and hopefully the first of many. The food was overwhelmingly delicious. We started with the plantain appetizer which was a layer of avocado, salmon, cilantro and eel sauce on a fresh, fried plantain. This appetizer is to die for. We proceeded to have the salmon entree and the sushi bowl. Both has amazing flavors and textures and just left us wanting more. With such great food we wondered if the desert menu would be just as great. Although there were not many options we decided on the chocolate bread pudding and it was a tantalizing combination of sweet soft bread pudding and a very indulgent chocolate layer. We will definitely come back and hope others will visit and enjoy Tap 42 as much as we did.

The service was excellent! We loved all our appetizers and ate so much we weren't even hungry for our main meal, but of course once it came out it was so good that we all made room for it! It was great! Five stars all around!

After completing an Open Table reservation for 7pm, i get a notification at 6pm that I was a no-show. Called the restaurant to fix the issue and be sure the 7pm was kept. Very noisy conversation, hard to hear Dianna, the person who took the call. Upon arriving at the restaurant at 6:55pm, my party is being told that the outside seating we were confirmed now is no longer available, apparently being told this during the noisy conversation on the phone. Who dropped the ball? who cancelled me at 6? Not a good experience whatsoever, in particular after having had a great experience at another Tap 42 location. Would NOT recommend this location.

Reserved a group of 30 people. Selected the outdoor area for the group and they loved it. Selected the preset Tap 42 Ultimate Package. Food was excellent and there was a lot of it. All guests were very happy.

My first visit to Tap 42 Midtown location was superb. Our waitress was knowledgeable of the menu and helped us decide what we should try, since everything sounded delicious! Definitely left an impression.
However, upon my second visit (Jan 1 2019), I had made a reservation knowing it could be a long wait since it was New Year's day, I had a mediocre experience. The salmon tostones were very underwhelming, small bites for $15? Meh. My son's sliders tasted like they were frozen burgers you buy at the grocery store, no flavor. I ordered half rack ribs which were a bit tough. I had ordered ribs on my 1st visit and the rib meat literally fell off the bone and melted in my mouth, this time around it seemed like they quickly cooked off the ribs and sent it over, definitely not "slow roasted" as described on the menu. Will attempt another visit but maybe at a different location.
