Normally we love taps! It has always been delicious. The service sensational!! But this time, The food was mediocre and made me sick literally. Our server was overwhelmed with all her tables and left us sitting there for a while after we finished our dinner. We were also told one of our gift cards was for brunch only and no where on the car does it say that I wanted to speak to a manager but didn’t want to stress our server out even more by asking for him. I thought when he came out onto the floor I would flag him down I did see him so we paid the bill, When we left the manager was in the office. It will definitely be a while before we go back.

Been here for Sunday brunch in the past and we sat outside and had a good experience. But I decided to take my family here for a Sunday dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday and it was uncomfortably hot inside. When I asked about the temperature I was told that the AC system would not blow any cooler. My waiter said "you should have been here last week when the outdoor climate was hotter, that weekend was even worse in here". What I got out of that is, the hotter it is the less likely I want to be there or recommend this place to anyone else.

The weather was extremely hot and the restaurant inside was uncomfortable. It was very difficult to enjoy fabulous food when you're dripping with beads of sweat running downyour face. The response is the air conditioning is on it just can't keep up, not an appropriate response. The managers know what it's like there they should make arrangements to have fans brought in. They know the weather is hot. For crying out loud we live in the desert.

Food was Delicious, service was GREAT in the restaurant (not so much the bar) . We were there on a very hot day and the temperature inside could have been much cooler for comfort. Sadly enough, the noise level got higher as large groups came in and destroyed the romantic atmosphere. But, overall a good experience and I would go back!

I was very disappointed, the service was terrible. We were asked what we were drinking 5 times and no one followed through. Our meal was over cooked and the I was only given two shrimp in my jambalaya. The rice was over cooked and was the majorly of my meal. We has ceiviche that was over sauced and tasted terrible. Dessert didn’t get much better and the service got worse as our waiter never checked on us.

Overall great service. A few issues with the kitchen taking to long and you could tell some of the food had sat under the heating lamp too long but managed and our server made up for it and then some which was very much appreciated.

Our party of four was uncomfortably warm the whole time we were there. I ordered the signature Chilean Sea Bass and the rice was dried out and crusty on the bottom. Very disappointing. In the past, Taps was reliably good, but of late we’ve had a number of unsatisfactory visits.

We kept pushing our reservation back due to graduation ceremony overruns. We finally got there at 8pm. The place was very busy and it took a long time to get a drink and appetizer order. Once things got rolling the service and food were excellent. They took their time bringing out the courses which would normally have been fine but then they started pushing us as the kitchen wanted to close....not our fault folks, appreciate the time between courses but that was you not us. Anyway it was a great meal with great ambiance and service. Oh at almost $100 bucks for steak n lobster it was a big enough portion to share between 2 people so the value was there...:)

I requested the captain’s table to celebrate two birthdays. They said someone requested it before me. I have no way of knowing if that was true. Instead they showed our party to a particularly bad table. Next time I would like to talk to someone.

It was very busy, as I’ve heard it mostly is. Brunch was good. We made reservations and I was unaware that we needed to request an inside table, it was a bit chilly outside but not too bad. The hostess who sat us seemed a bit rude when my parents asked about an inside table. Told us we would have to wait 25-40 mins if we wanted one. So just a heads up if you prefer inside seating you must request with a reservation. The deviled eggs tasted metallic, not sure if it was the prep bowl but it was very strong and awful. The seafood was decent. Shrimp had to be peeled and deveined. Other than that it was nice. Bottomless mimosas definitely made the day!!
