We had an amazing time. We were very well taken care of by the staff, we were given wines that complimented all the different meals we were having. Spectacular staff, great food, really great wine and cocktails. Couldn't recommend it more.

Food is top drawer. Service is excellent. While not cheap, everything is exactly as it should be. Wine list is very impressive. The 'som' knows what he is doing.

We expected great food and were not disappointed. What exceeded our expectations was the level of service on Valentine's Day. The service and food were excellent. For a day where restaurants are stretched to the limit, we never felt hurried nor was the service or food compromised. A great restaurant.

Just moved to the area and didnt want to drive back to downtown for a fine dinner. after a little research I decide give it a shot. Both my wife and I agreed that food quality, service and value is beyond expectation. especially for the Tuesday chief special menu, it's a decent 3-course menu for the price of an entree. We will definitely go again !

It's a little confusing to find as their sign is quite unobtrusive. The staff were very accommodating & even replaced our wiggly table. This was a Gran & Grandson 10th birthday dinner & the food did not disappoint. One negative was the pork chop special. It had a huge amount of fat & was in places kind of tough. Saying that though I must also admit that the flavour of the meat was very tasty. The gnocchi were the best either of us had ever tasted. All of the prawns in our dishes were cooked perfectly as were all of the vegetables. Kuddos to the pastry chef as both desserts were stellar.

I have been there three or four times. During two separate dinners, they served me nuts even though they clearly understood that I have nut allergies. I have never seen it this bad in any other restaurant. This is why I rated "service" as low, even though everything else including the food quality was good (I am just being as fair as possible).

Last time, they served me mocha cake and despite my wife and I asking them twice, the waitress and one of the cooks were adamant that it has no nuts. Zero. The waitress said "let me ask the chef one more time" and came back with "absolutely no nuts." I bit onto the cake twice, and then one of the chefs walked over and took it away, apologizing for his mistake. The cake did have nuts, and I drove home with restricted breathing. It was a scary and a disappointing end to the night.

My daughter who is definitely a foodie recommended we eat here for our bi weekly lunch date. I was not disappointed. The service was wonderful, the food was creative and flavourful and our selections were spaced out accordingly as to savour each selection. Our server was knowledgeable and delightful with our service. I intend to revisit with my husband for date night in the very near future. Thank you again for a lovely dinning experience.

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.

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.

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.

We had a great meal but our server never once asked if we would like more wine or even water when both our glasses were empty. Once we finished our meal it took quite awhile for her to return to ask if would like anything else. A couple times we almost just got up and left. I have been here a few times before for dinner and enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately our lunch experience wasn’t the same

This restaurant always serves great food. We have never experienced a poor meal in the many times we have attended The TP.
Better than many good restaurants with their reasonably priced wine selections. In the words of

TAP offers the best dining in South Surrey. Chef/owner/Somelier Alistair Veen deserves his excellent reputation and awards. On Saturday he helped with my food and beverage choices then followed through with little touches that made my night out sparkle.

Serious foodies know and love this place because it never disappoints. See the menu on-line at their website then expect a few specials. Last Saturday the specials were created with Ling Cod (a local fish) or Waygu Beef from Alberta. I began the evening with a plate of charcuterie. It was exceptional with little touches of French Cuisine and Farm-to-Table ingenuity to set the tone for evening. Think, 'the Best of BC' dining in an elegant, cozy atmosphere.

Did I say that Service is exceptional? Parking is easy and ample. Reserve on-line or call.

After eating there many times, we were very disappointed in the food. The Caesar salad has changed from what it has been. I could only eat part of it. The rack of lamb was not up to it’s usual standard. We were really looking forward to it. 😔. As I said, very disappointed.

First time at Tap. The front room is crowded and doesn't have much ambience. The back room where we were was better. Lighting is not great and has a coldness to it. Wait staff and servers were great, food was great. Overall a good evening with the biggest improvement needed being the lighting and overall ambience.
