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!!

Everything was wonderful. The only thing I don’t get is for such a beautiful restaurant and amazing food you’d think updating the way outdated and stinky restrooms would be a no brainer.

Friday night, parking was a challenge but luckily wasn't difficult to secure a reservation for 5... Food was good. For appetizers, we had three types of dip and the cheese board ... Delish!! Noise level was fine since our table more likely competed with the other patrons'. Service was good as well, catered to our needs. Overall, a splendid time with friends as well as an early birthday celebration where the celebrant received a crème brulee to her ultimate dessert joy 🤣

We were meeting friends and made reservation for 4 early evening. We were greeted immediately ... very friendly; looked and saw that our friends arrived earlier and then sat us right away. The server was friendly and extremely efficient but not instrusive. (know what I mean? ) I eat Paleo, and TAPS is one of the best restaurants to create! I had grilled salmon with seasoned spaghetti squash and fresh asparagus. It was delicious and perfectly prepared! The other three ate right off the menu. My ! fillet was cooked perfectly, tender juicy and supberb! We had a great evening!

Food horrible. Greasy and made me very sick. And for a birthday and they did nothing. Spent 80 bucks for two people at lunch and not even a scoop of ice cream with a candle. And messed up food orders had three waitresses that all kept asking same questions. Would not go back unless for a drink only.

We have been to TAPS a few times, and it has been a pleasant experience. I would definitely bring the bank with you. You will not find much value on the menu and most items you can easily find elsewhere at lower cost. I ordered a special, not on the menu, that included, a 5oz flat iron steak, herb risotto, crab claw, and broccolini. The cost was $48.50 and I while I enjoyed the risotto, the steak had gravy on it that really stole the intended flavor of steak and the crab claw was quite small. In the end, small steak, small crab claw with a large ticket. We also ordered the special dessert (Red velvet cake with a cream cheese sauce) and you must order it 30 minutes ahead, which we did. We had other plans that evening and the dessert made us late. The manager offered and did remove the dessert from our bill. In summary, I am not against spending good money for good food. But as a group, we agreed that the quality of the meal did not match the prices. Plan to spend $50 a person to have dinner here or get the same food elsewhere at a much lower cost.

Almost everything was great. Just unlucky that it happened to be some cigar group’s regular gathering night and the smoke seeped into the dining room. It was strong enough to irritate those who are sensitive to smoke. Staff did offer to move us.

Our family dined at TAPS to celebrate my husbands retirement. Our experience sadly was not that great. The waiter was not attentive and four our of six meals were terrible. Two guests actually got sick. We have eaten at this location at times so we were shocked at the bad service and poor quality meals. I had to send my meal back because it was so under cooked I could not eat it. We were in one of the smaller dining rooms and while we can appreciate you can’t control rude guest who talk and laugh at the top of his/her lungs it just made the experience worse because we could not talk to each other at all.

I won’t return to this location. Our server Brian was distant, cold, unhelpful, and rude. He made my husband and I feel like trash. We are part of and related to many in the service industry but he treated us like less than and that we weren’t worth his time. Food was good, as always. Will not return to this location as I said but I’ve only ever had spectacular service at the Irvine location.

This place has changed over the years in my opinion but one thing that remains is the food is STELLAR! I do not know of another restaurant in the Inland Empire that is as consistently this good. I think they may be out of most people's price range for a casual meal, but for a special occasion I would recommend Taps to everyone! They craft their own beer too. I am a huge fan of their Sunday brunch, but again- it's pricey at more than $30 per person.

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?
