When we arrived the hostess made sure we were seated in a sheltered area with a heat lamp as requested. Our server was very friendly and made sure we had all that we needed. He also comped my sister’s dessert as he found out we were there to celebrate her birthday. All in all a wonderful experience

The support staff were great but the initial hostess that I encountered was unfriendly and snappy.

My server was abrupt cold and seem to be forcing himself to smile. He during our stay and his shift and sat at the bar and gossiped with the bartender quite blatantly in an unfriendly manner.

As previously mentioned, the support staff that were running food and clearing tables were great and friendly.

FYI even if the reservation appears available on open table, it doesn’t mean that the table is available. I’d been to this tap and barrel many times and never had issues until now. Not sure why Tap doesn’t block it off on the app to minimize confusion. So we ended up waiting for a table because essentially the open table reservation was voided.

Food was good like usual. Bizarre experience with the reso system.

Food, drinks & service were great. We were served very quickly. Good menu variety with interesting eats. I would highly recommend the deep fried pickles, they were a great size served with a fantastic dill dip.

Came for Dine Out dinner and requested to sit at their patio, where tables were fairly well distanced. Was quite warm, and our server offered to turn the other heater on as well. She also refilled my hot water and was just super attentive and sweet the whole night. Food was great as well, I don't know if it's just because I haven't had a dinner out in God knows how long, but I had the PNW Tacos (personally preferred the avocado over the shrimp), Onion Ring Burger, and Apple Tart. All were delicious and piping hot. Would highly recommend for any other Covid-wary diners wanting a night out.

Salad came without dressing; beer glasses smelt detergent. Great spot; excellent view. I would go there but only for drinks and on an afternoon.

It’s COVID... so you need to manage expectations... I thought everyone did a good job, food was good, selection of beer and wine was good.. they even moved us outdoors so we could feel more comfortable!

My dinner was disappointing. The poke bowl lacked flavour. My partners fish and chips batter was over cooked. I am not sure if our servers swapped but they never asked how our food was and then brought our bill forgetting that we had ordered dessert. The dessert wasn’t great either. We went to the tap and barrel two weeks ago in North van and it was amazing. I won’t be coming back to this location.

The servers were fun and helpful. Noise level was OK, but slightly quieter would have been better for conversation. Very good menu choices. Would recommend.
