My husband and I went for our 37 year anniversary.
Our waitress was overly friendly, a bit fake, and seemed odd when we didn’t want to order salad or soup or wine.
Nobody ever mentioned our anniversary.
When you reserve on open table it asks if it’s a
Special occasion. Nobody recognized that at all.

Made reservations and when we arrived, a group discussion about where to seat us (dressed nice for date night dinner), and we were walked through the resturaunt to the back patio! Loud, mostly large families with children. We walked away and choose to have our date night meal in the Bar area instead. Reservations for what?

This was the second time we have been to this Taps location and we were not disappointed. We had a reservation to seating was not a problem. The service was timely and our waiter was pleasant. My steak was very good and my wife enjoyed the fish & chips. I especially like that since I brought a bottle of wine that they do not carry the corking fee was only ten dollers. It was a good experience and we will return.

First of all , This was a business meeting . I took some people that was from Ohio .
Server was Good , but ,,, when our meals came out , the one that was serving the plates was not sure where each one went ( 3 of us) , I made a comment about how I got the smallest steak of all ( Ribeye ) I took one bite of steak and it was good , then I started to take another bite and the Manager ( I think she was ) took my plate and said I got the wrong one . She said Sorry and another plate came out in about 3 minutes or so . This steak was the Ribeye but it was Well Done . I ordered my steak Med-Rare ...
I told my guests I really don't complain , but I could not eat the Well Done Steak (very dry) . We waited for our server to come by which took a very long time . When we finally got his attention I told him this steak was Well Done , He did take it right away and said he was sorry . In a few minutes the Manager came back by our table and said , first i was giving the wrong Steak then the new one was Well done , I'm sorry for that . She offer me a desert or a drink for the mix-up . I declined the offer , Finally my New Steak came out in another 10 - 15 minutes . My guests were done with their meal before the steak came out . What i did was cut the steak to make sure it was right and then I had them boxed it up . For the cost of our meal and for what happened , a drink or desert ? really !!

The dining area is quiet compared to the bar area. Always try to sit in booth. For more intimate setting

Taps is usually a great evening out, but this evening seemed very slow for service. Restaurant was not too busy. Also, restaurants bar could not make a drink due to being out of the liquor. Also, they forgot to bring out our bread...we were craving bread.

This was a favorite place but it's now more overpriced than delicious. I got the newer shrimp dinner, something similar is offered at Corner Bakery Cafe for a third of the price. 5 shrimp on a dinner costing almost $30, not impressive and to make it worse they were overcooked. Luckily my husband loved his salmon and enjoyed his beer. We were hoping for something special on Halloween, but here it was just another night.
We used to come once a month guaranteed. Now we come just a few times a year. Just not as wonderful and not as worth the price anymore.

No Shrimp was available, and you have to pay an additional $8.99 for a half pound of crab legs. For $36.99 it should all be included. We were very disappointed

We've been going to Taps, since they opened, (Brea and Corona) We remember how fantastic brunch used to be! A live band, necklaces, beignets, it was amazing! Now, it's nice, but needs improvement. So many foods needed replenishment, each time we went to the buffet. The manager is very nice, but she looks like a patron, instead of a manager. When she asked me if I needed anythhing, I didn't know what to say! I thought she was a guest, from another table!!! The bathroom had no toilet paper, so no one is taking care of that department. We will continue to go to Taps, because it's great sometimes, and have been going since the Brea location opened. Corona Taps is a great location! That's why we'll be back!

I typically don’t write reviews but this place sucked. We Normally dine at the taps in brea and love it. Everything about this meal was bad. There were 4 of us and we ordered the following. Jumbolaya, tilapia, sea bass and I orders the rib eye. My colleague ordered the jumbolaya and he took two bites and that was it. He didn’t say it because I was treating for dinner but you could tell it was horrible. He ate most of his Wife’s dinner which was the Talapia. From what I could tell that was the only edible dish we had. My wife had the sea bass which at the brea taps is the best. Very dry and whatever add ons that came on the plate were inedible. For $40 it was terrible. Finally I had the rib eye special. It
Came with a large shrimp and a small lobster tail. Both of these were chewy like bubble gum which means the fish want fresh. As for the rib eye, I think Denny’s sirloin is better which isn’t saying much. The meat was tough and chewy. You could tell a very downgrade of meat. Not the quality would expect for the price. There was a side of mashed potatoes that had what tasted like horse radish in them. Wow. Way to screw up the easiest dish in the world to make. Note to chef, butter, milk salt and pepper is all you need for goo mashed potatoes, NOT HORSE RADISH. Oh well I wanted was the mako but even though it was offered on the menu it wasn’t available. Along with the desert we wanted once again offered but not available. Company was great dinner was bad.

Good restaurant to celebrate a special event. The Chilean Sea Bass was great except for the relish that was too sweet. A little bit more citrus would have complimented this dish well.

While the service was excellent, the quality of the food was not good. Not sure if they got new chiefs or what has happened from the last time we visited. At this time I would not recommend as you are paying too much for the quality that you are receiving.
