Catering
Our catering team specializes in on-site canapé creation, as well as private dinners. We bring a team into your house/venue and build all the canapés in front of your guests. We try to stay away from buffet style, preferring to do set menus. We do not do drop offs and pick-up is very limited due to the nature of our cuisine.

Usually the food is excellent, but I rated it lower based on my most recent experience. I had a smoked salmon salad with winter greens and candied walnuts. There was no smoked salmon and the salmon that accompanied it had the consistency and blandness of poached salmon. Worst of all, I hit a rancid walnut which put me off the whole thing.
My friend, the birthday girl, enjoyed her lunch very much. And the service was attentive and not intrusive.

Very tasty appetizers. Main course was also good but very small portions. Restaurant was very crowded. Tables very close together.

Reasonable food and cozy environment. The dish is good. Lobster soup might be great if there are lobster mice in it.

Booked noting it was my wife's B'day, however the waitress was not aware. Only said happy b'day at the end of our dinner. It was busy that day, however we waited about 10-12 min after we were seated to have our orders taken. We were ready to order our full meal and the waitress only took our drink order and left with out asking if we were ready to order food. When we did order food they didn't have 2 dishes that we wanted. Would think the waitress would have let us know beforehand what they were out of that evening.

The French onion soup was a bit too sweet for my wife's liking, and would prefer to have the pork belly crispy and not soft.

We have been to Tap many times. Service is always excellent and the food is always excellent. The menu hasn't changed in a while but we still find meals we enjoy.

Dined at many French restaurants in France. The Tap duck was better than any French restaurant I have enjoyed.

The dessert, Lava Cake, was excellent.

Great presentation on the plates.

Definitely will go back again - many times - to try some of the other menu items

Great room and live music was excellent. Very good service. Mussels were great. Good wine list. Food was presented beautifully. Entrees tasted okay, but weren't great, and we expected better for the price. (Ling cod, pork belly and the pasta were our mains.) Seasoning and flavours fell kind of flat? The poached pear dessert definitely needs a re-do and wasn't very good at all. I would love to try this restaurant again, but will wait until there is a new menu to try.
