    Very pleased to see such an extensive gluten-free menu! All kinds of choices, and the food was excellent. Great place to meet up with friends for a late-birthday brunch. Nice cozy ambiance at 11 am on a Saturday morning in February. Everything was tasty, and I thought Tap & Barrel offered very good value, which is important these days. Two of us wanted gluten-free options, and the other two didn't. Extensive menu - something for everyone! I will definitely be back - well worth 'going out' to Tap & Barrel.

    The quality of food is not what it used to be. We were a group of 10 people. One order never arrived. Too many TV screens to be able to have a meaningful social gathering. The servers seemed very busy and possibly overworked trying to attend to customers. Will not go back!

    Good service by our waitress. Other employees deliver the food and drinks. We liked the humus with flatbread paired with Hall Pass IPA. Reservations in advance eliminate long wait times. Good parking in Lonsdale Quay and a short walk to Tap & Barrel.

    The atmosphere is amazing. The service is pleasant. They have a wide selection of beers, and if you're unsure, they let you taste them, which is absolutely great! The food is excellent, especially the Veggie Burger and pizza – top-notch! Thanks for a wonderful experience. A beautiful date with a view of the illuminated Vancouver.

    Live in the area so I go to tap and barrel maybe once a month or once every two months. Restaurant didn’t seem very busy but just poor / slow service, food was cold and not very good (I got the falafel burger as quite frankly it was either stale or overcooked), didn’t get my drink until after my food came!? Really disappointed

    3rd time there but not as enjoyable as the other 2. We reserved and typically go upstairs but were set at the far back where it was cold and fairly loud. The upstairs was closed which was disappointing. Our waitress was very friendly but very slow with service. Our nachos Appy, although tasty, arrived cold which diminished the enjoyment. The mains were enjoyed by all with exception of one of them having dry overcooked chicken. Hopefully our next time going improves to be similar to our other times.
