Great food! I had the filet mignon. It was nice and thick and cooked perfectly. I like that the dinner comes with a veggie and potatoes. Another in my party had the "surf and turf" and the lobster was HUGE! Only complaint is minor. The waitress dropped off the check and then disappeared for what seemed an eternity. We had to flag her down from across the restaurant. She should have checked on us to see if we were ready to pay...we were!

The restaurant experiaence was absolutely marvelous. The food was fabulous and the waiter and hostess and all the personnel that waited on our table was wonderful. The waiter we had was serving all of the tables and he did a fabulous job keeping his cool. The whole crew worked well together attending to our needs. Great personalities, professional, and classy! 3 of us ordered the sampler and 1 of us ordered steak! The price was extremely reasonable for the service and the quality of the food. I will be back soon!

Both food and service were not quite as good as they have been during most of our prior visits.

Drinks are SO overpriced and they don't put anything in them.
Had chicken, and it was so dry, I couldn't eat it and had to send it back.
May be ok for fish, but if you're not a fish eater, would suggest other better nearby options.

We hadn’t been to brunch in a few months. The food selection and service were a big disappointment. With so many other great brunch spots we probably won’t be going back to Taps.

Our waitress did not give us information about the prix fixed menu. We discovered it after our meal was over. It cost us an additional $50 and we ordered the very same entree, soup and dessert. Not awesome customer service by far.

First time at Sunday brunch there. Hot Food was dried out and cold (nasty home style potatoes, the syrup for pancakes was a mess). The taste was bland. The only things good were the stir fry - made to order and was hot, eggs and bananas foster we ordered from the kitchen and the coffee. Love Lavaza coffee. Oh and it’s so awe full to have to peel and clean your own shrimp at a buffet. I bet there are more wasted than you realize. We thought we could do it but.... ended up wasting 5 or 10 shrimp because of the hassel. It was a total waste of money and I won’t be back.

I have been here before but it was a first for Sunday Brunch. I was disappointed with the food and service. There were lines for the buffets and they ran out of food and were delayed in refilling the servers.

We were celebrating birthdays for the price of the brunch, compared to the food it was not worth it. I really enjoy this place for lunch and/or dinner; but don’t think I’ll make it point to come back for the brunch.

I’ve been to taps Brea at least 20 times and normally very impressed... we went last Saturday and it definitely did not live up to their normal standards. The fish and chips were soggy, the rockfish was mealy, just seemed very rushed due to the fact they were busy...disappointing.

The food was really good and different from our normal night out. Everything we had, from appetizer to dessert was really tasty. Our server was not very good. We had to constantly ask for things as she did not check on us very often. It took 20 minutes to get a drink from the bar. This was not a bar issue as we could see our drinks sitting there waiting for her to pick them up. The “bus boy” was very attentive. He filled our water glasses on a regular basis and he asked if we wanted bread, not our waitress.
