    Chicken: uncooked, blood was literally still pumping through the wings. Service: the worst. Passive aggressive actions and comments on top of slow service. Ambiance: Lighted like a slaughterhouse.

    Scrambled eggs were runny and watery with no taste. I’ve had much better breakfast from here before so it was a bit disappointing! Service was good and we had a nice booth.

    My wife made a reservation for my 50th birthday and was told we couldn't have a party of 8 in the main dining area, so we were relegated to a separate space that was more of an over flow room that didkt have the ambience we were expecting. There were then several little errors throughout the night. We ordered our first course from the Dine Out Vancouver menu and I ordered an extra app from the regular menu. That app never came. The server admitted he missed it but by then our entrees were coming. I ordered a ribeye medium rare and was told by the server that because it's a leaner steak I should have it medium. I'm not sure why I was advised against my preference as a ribeye is not known for being lean. I ordered a bottle of malbec and when I was tasting it, I told the waiter there were bits of cork in my glass. He apologized and then filled my glass rather than replace it so i still had bits of cork in my wine. The red wine we ordered was ice cold and when asked the waiter said its kept in the fridge to maintain proper temp. As a lover of red wines I couldn't understand that. Our food arrived and they didn't know whose was whose at our table including one steak that was delivered as being well done but no one at the table ordered a well done steak. It all seemed discombobulated. My friends entree arrived several minutes after everyone else's. Because we were in the extra room with the doors open we had to eat without him so it didn't get cold. There was no compensation offered until my wife suggested the waiter comp his glass of beer for the wait. Overall the food was good but not what we expected considering the price paid. The overall experience was such that we don't plan on going back. A $250 bill for my wife and I was not commensurate to the expereince. The waiter was pleasant and was trying his best but clearly needs some extra training. As a veteran of the service industry I still tipped 20% but we won't be returning.

    Our waiter was not overly helpful. When my wife asked if the bread pudding was good, his response was “I don’t know, I’ve never tried it. I don’t eat sweets ever”. I found that response strange.

    Despite making a reservation for a table in advance, we were seated almost IN the kitchen, at a table that seemed out of place, while walk-ins appeared to be given better options. It was not clear who our server was, and it took a while to even be greeted once we sat. Food was great, but overall attention to customer experience was not.

    I haven't been to this location since it first opened. The first time I just wasn't all that impressed. I decided to try it again as I have been to Cactus Club too much lately and it was really nice this time around. We were there for Happy Hour and they have sangria on the menu so yum! Also the Mac and cheese and chicken wings were really tasty.

    Everything was great. However the bathrooms are not in great shape; the walls have things all over them, the caulking has mold and stuff growing around the sink and under the hand dryers The bathrooms need a VERY good scrub down; not hygienic at all! Other than that, great vibe, food and service!

    We first visited the Tap and Barrel when in Vancouver in 2017 and loved it. So when we returned to Vancouver we of course revisited and weren’t disappointed. It’s an awesome bar and restaurant and the staff are so welcoming and friendly. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Definitely a favourite of ours.
