Appies, mains, drinks and dessert were all delicious for both of us. Will return on that basis alone. Ambiance was marginal, not a lot of character but was clean. Nothing wrong with the servers themselves but need more of them-had a Saturday 6pm-8pm meal and waited for everything. Need more staff at prime time!
such a welcoming atmosphere , very professional service , charming& attentive, food is delicious and well plated.Great cocktails and wine selection.
The food is consistently very good. The wine list is great and Alisatir Veen (proprietor) is an excellent sommelier. This is a favourite go-to spot.
Alister and his team are the best in South Surrey/ White Rock. A real downtown high end dining experience right in our backyard. So special!
I know I can count on the dinner being creative and delicious and definitely not something I'd be making at home. Just what you want in a good restaurant.
Lobster bisque was delicious and so was the charcuterie board! Our server John was attentive and very friendly!
Our annual tradition continues @ Tap. From our first date to our anniversary dinner we always count on Tap to blow us away with fresh, local ingredients and a wine list that’s second to none. This hidden gem is the best of the best in the South Surrey area.
Great atmosphere, romantic setting, excellent service and food
well done to the optimum for a great experience of local sourced food and a moderate priced yet impressive date night.
My wife and I went on a Tuesday night and the restaurant was almost full. The service was both helpful and knowledgeable. The Alsatian tart was excellent. She had duck and I had the lamb. Both were delicious We will certainly return and would recommend Tap to anyone
Used to be our absolute favourite restaurant in the Valley. Went there back to back recently with a foodie couple, and then on next night with immed family of 6 for 28th wedding anniv. Has it's glowing points still, with some creative and tasty food dishes, some fabulous waiters and waitresses, plus Alister's super impressive wine knowledge....but last 2 visits didn't match our memories of it. Historically we found prices were up there, but quality was always superb and service exemplary. However these last 2 occasions it was more m'eh which was disappointing. Actually on the second occasion the service was sub-par (didn't get Melissa :-( ) , had a table for 6 under a/c unit so was super cold but nowhere to move, and was located out by the front door. When they knew it was a special occasion it would have been nice to not be placed in this less than ideal spot. Especially after having been there the night before. Wine list still real real good, and Alister knows his stuff, very impressive and super nice guy. And fab to be able to eat so much local organically. But a couple of meals on both occasions were luke warm, meat portions seemed to be smaller (?), service on Sat night was agonizingly slow...yet prices still reflected a 6 star experience. Disappointing cause we used to love it and recommended it to many. So now it's a 'possible' venue for us versus a must-do. They have structure to provide fantastic moments, but 2 recent experiences for us were not the same. So it's good versus outstanding, with a hope they rebound and this was just a tougher weekend.
Excellent food and service on the beautiful patio. John is the best waiter around.
Always fantastic. Favorite restaurant. 30% off of our favorite wine on Wednesday’s and live music on the patio. Doesn’t get much better!
Been to Tap many times now. Have never left disappointed.
Tap is a neighbourhood gem. The food is gourmet with a flair for variety from the usual. The wine list is exceptional.
We love this restaurant! Staff are friendly and the food is delicious. I have never had a bad meal there!
Great ambiance in a quiet, casual yet elegant setting. Food is very good, selection to meet all tastes, good sized portions, well presented, served hot. Locally sourced food is featured. Great desserts. Staff friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive without being intrusive, efficient without rushing. Friendly, welcoming owner who’s also a chef and award winning sommelier.
Our first (but not our last) visit to Tap! We were greeted warmly, our server Anna was simply amazing and the food sensational! A great experience and one that we will do again and again!
Service is super slow. Food doesn’t taste the same as before. Prawn was served raw. Kitchen took it back regrilled it without even apologize. This place had been consistently good for many years but this time it was a huge disappointment. It’s as if the chef is different. Everything lacks flavour. Halibut came with barely any flavour. Will not go back again.
Our server was delightful and the food was exceptional. I had a chicken dish which was very moist and flavourful and came with a very tasty rice. My friend had the chicken and rib special which she said was excellent. The environment is so cozy and welcoming. A real gem in a S Surrey neighbourhood. Love coming here for either lunch or dinner.
Alister is the best in the biz. You will not be disappointed.
We had good service and love the patio seating our food was good but my Halibut meal's portion was small for the price and alittle cold.
We love Tap. We dine there at least monthly. It’s the best “unpretentious upscale” restaurant in South Surrey/White Rock. Try the Tuesday Night Farm to Table 3 Courses for $30. Great value for fresh creative food. Last Tuesday even included a lobster tail! Fabulous. Allister’s knowledge of food and wine is impressive. The staff are great! The patio is beautifully shaded and intimate. Love it!
We received a TAPS gift card and decided to use it on our 28th Anniversary. Even though I thought the online menu seemed expensive, the food, the service, the attention to detail, the ambience and, of course, the gift card (LOL!) made it worthwhile.
I would highly recommend the Ceasar Salad and the Lobster Bisque as appetizers! My wife had one of the specials for the evening, lobster tail, and loved it! She raved how everything had flavour and tasted so fresh. I had the full rack of lamb and thought it was very good as well.
Our waitress, Melissa ,was both professional and friendly. The owner Adrian was pleasant and hard working as he assisted in attending guests needs at the perfect service level.
The restaurant is located in a residential subdivision. This made it quite enjoyable as we did not have to contend with noisy traffic or unsightly prking lots from our outdoor patio table.
We would highly recommend TAPS to anyone celebrating a special occasion!
We always enjoy the attentive staff and exceptional meals at Tap. The Caesar salad is hard to resist! I particularly like the acoustics; it’s easy to have quiet conversation. One would not expect such a great restaurant where it is located.
Always great menu that changes to give more choices and new experiences for the taste buds every visit
Service only comparable to the RVYC Jericho, Vancouver Club or Granite club in TO
Number one in my book
Lucky I live just around the corner
Staff is incredible
Get a reservation the place is a hidden gem
Expensive but excellent. The live music was great.
Our go to restaurant. A little neighborhood gem. Always excellent.
A nice shaded patio and good service - topped off with great food and wine.
Perfect evening for dining on the deck. John is a fantastic waiter, with an appropriately sly sense of humour! Food is very good. Wine selection is superb. One of my favourite restaurants, anywhere.
Our "go-to" place to catch up! We especially enjoy meeting on Tuesday evenings because of the Farm to Table Menu. This Menu is not only always delicious, but allows us to jump right in to "what's been happening" without spending too much time deciding on what we are going to order. We always leave Tap's feeling that the world is a little brighter because of our friendship and the welcoming environment and great food we've shared at "our" special restaurant!
In for a late lunch, we both enjoyed our meals and would most differently recommend this restaurant. Great little neighbourhood restaurant.
The Caesar salad was awesome. In all of my 70+ years I have never tasted better.
The entrees were right on the mark. Best Restaurant for many miles around.
First time there and it was great. Highly recommend this little gem!!!!
My husband and I shared everything and the next day our belly was very upset. Whatever ate worked it’s way out of system as fast as it could.
Tap can always be counted on for an evening that is a cut above. As a guest you feel appreciated, pampered and well looked after. Meals are memorable and leave you unwanting after a satisfying and delicious dinner, prepared with care and culinary flare. Everyday meals or special occasions are each well served as you can temper your menu and alcohol choices accordingly ( and if you need guidance on the wine list, it is readily and happily offered) we love Tap and have dined there often, even after moving out of the area.
Second time was even better than the first. The first visit in winter was inside, which I find noisy and have hypersensitive hearing so noise levels affect me. This time we sat on the patio which was fabulous! The food is a flavour party and healthy too. Wine list is excellent. Staff are attentive and fun...very tasteful. Quiet..although we wished the music had been outside too. My issue is needing gluten free options for bread or noodles, but I found something great on the menu that fit. Even a gluten free, dairy free dessert would be welcomed by me and probably others.
Tap never disappoints. The food is so perfectly prepared and so delicious and the service is consistently the most attentive and professional I have experienced in a long time.
Patio was great but I was Disappointed with the starters, went to another restaurant after.
