I had the delicious spicy Cesar! The waffle with crunchy fried chicken and perfectly cooked poached egg Yummy.
The bowl of fruits was not great but difficult to get nice fresh fruits at this time of year. I tasted the banana bread and it was very good and on the light side. I want to go back

We went for the dine out brunch. It was great value for money. My friend had the granola and the double bacon benedict, and lived it. I had the fruit bowl - really fresh! The breakfast burger however was a little disappointing as the beef patty and the fried egg were overcooked. But as I said, great value for money and good ambiance and friendly service. The hot beverages - B52 coffee and Spanish coffee were excellent. Would definitely go back again.

Typical pub food nothing outstanding. Took way to long to get initial service. Then just basic service with no server customer interaction. May or may nit come back. Nice spot though.

The lonsdale Tap&Barrel is my favorite location. We always have a good time. The last time we ate here, we had the best server. She was knowledgeable, make some good recommendations, was down to earth and kind. She needs a raise!

If you prefer a quieter experience, opt for a booth in the dining room. Otherwise, the lounge area is a great time!

I booked a reservation for dine out vancouver brunch. The dine out website had this listed and when I booked the reservation through open table, brunch dine out special was listed as a reason for the reservation. When a arrived, no brunch dine out menu was provided. We had to ask where the brunch dine out menu was, and we're told that it wasn't happening with no additional exanation or apology. The service was fine otherwise, but there was zero acknowledgement that we were not being offered the brunch dine out special which the reason why we went to tap and barrel and made a reservation. If I had known in advance I would have made a reservation somewhere else.

Good experience overall but they really should do something buy a drink for a persons birthday or something like that to make it a more special experience. Also was a bit too loud at times but it's also to be expected there.

Was keen to try Dine Out menu. Cauliflower steaks were fine but could have been served warm or hotter. The taco appetizer was great . Dessert was ok but not super good, we were warned that the kitchen had run out of vegan ice cream , disappointing.

The food was bland and without inspiration. I could do the same at home with more care and elegance. The service was almost rude and not friendly. Overall a bad experience

We came to try out their Dine Out Vancouver menu. Our hostess sat us at our table, we ordered drinks and then our server asked if we wanted to start with an appetizer. I told her we wanted to order from their dine out menu. Our server told us they are no longer serving dine out as they ran out of most of their food, steak, lobster, mashed potatoes, dessert. We were not left with much else to pick from. The girls at reception should have mentioned something to us before seating us as we would have left the restaurant right away. Not good at all.

The food was immaculate. Best food me and my bf have ever had. The only thing that kinda ruined it was the chairs. The upstairs portion of the restaurant had uncomfortable chairs. The service was kinda slow but it was Valentine’s Day so it’s understandable. Overall, highly recommend this place!

We sat near where we got very cold air from the back doors opening frequently
It was very uncomfortable as we had to eat with our coats on
Wasn't impressed with the wine from the tap It had an effervescent to it
We Didn't finish it --that never happens

I’ve never been here before but the staff was friendly and professional. The music was a little loud but OK. The eggs Benny dish was absolutely delicious and I really appreciated all the Covid precautions that were taken up to and including a movable glass partition between our table and the next. I felt very safe...definitely come again!

Experience! Food was tasty specially the Cajun burger!! Margarita pizza not so much.

Definitely recommend having a dinner there noise level i marked as moderate is for game nights when people are screaming and cheering in the background so if you don’t like noise avoid going on those days!
