    Server was at best tolerable. Very inattentive and appeared to be bothered when asked for two glasses of water at time time of our drink order. Food was good and fairly quick and ambiance was nice. Overall nice restaurant with beautiful surroundings.

    Our server was amazing. We have had the same gentleman the last two times we were in and he was great with checking my dinner was safe as a celiac and also suggesting great wines. When they were out of milk which my daughter requested he suggested a Shirley Temple which was great. Only complaint we had was we waited a long time for the bill but then saw on the table we could pay via credit card at the table. Would have been great to be told about this at the end of the meal or to receive a bill as we prefer to pay by debit.

    We went for the NYE celebration. It said the tickets included canapes, but there was barely any food being served. I was able to spot only 2-3 trays coming out every hour or so. I would have like to see more food to be sent out or the price reduced for the event.

    The DJ and his music were not good at all and he was not exciting and did nothing and he only played the music and I did not like it and it was a very ordinary ceremony. I am very sad that I had suggested this place to my friends.

    DJ was poor! Would not take requests from other older music eras. Very prejudice about @keepibg the vibe for younger generation. I am a regular and was extremely disappointed! Won’t go here again next new years! Preferred more seating too!

    My vegetarian tofu bowl had a piece of raw meat in it. I think it might’ve been tuna or chicken. They compensated me for my meal but overall disappointing NYE dinner.

    Came here for New Year’s Eve and it was great. The set menu was good value and tasted really good. The only negative was the food didn’t arrive at the table at the same time. One of our guests had to wait an extra 5 minutes for their meal which shouldn’t happen especially with a set menu.

    Overall a great visit. The restaurant decor is really nice and I love the wine barrel stack at the entrance. Loved the guac & salsa with chips to start. Our main meals were fresh & tasty and the only critique would be my steak was on the tough side. The garlic mashed were lovely and the carrots were delicious. The Spicy Tuna burger was very different but super tasty. Our server was nice and attentive but not bothersome at all. She provided the perfect amount of attention and payment processing was very quick… we didn’t have to hunt her down which often happens. Our overall experience was a great one. It was NYE so they were busy but all our service times were quick We would and will visit again

    Terrible food. Looked dried out. Service was terrible. Waiter walked past empty water and beverage glasses about 6 times and didn’t ask if we wanted more drinks. He then glared over our shoulders when paying and entering a tip. Very rude when he saw his tip and no thanks.

    Sadly, the poke bowl I had was one of the worst ever anywhere. The rice was old and dry, and there was very little flavor at all. My daughters pizza was very average, but acceptable. I won’t return.

    Two of us over 60 yrs old, two of us over 70. Seated us on the east side with all the tvs loudly airing sports. So noisy. Staff gracious enough to turn the volume down a bit while we were there. No one in our area was even watching the tvs. Realized there was a quieter seating area when we were leaving. Suggest staff offer that to older folks who may not wish to struggle with talking and listening during their meal. Server was fantastic. Two appies we ordered were good but halloumi veggie sandwich and the fries were uninteresting and bland. Not much reason to return except for the location.

    Our hostess was really friendly and very inviting. Our table was just being prepared when we arrived. We asked for a booth when reserving which we got and it was away from the main bar area which is usually quite energetic (code for LOUD). Our server Harry was available immediately to greet us and inform us of the specials. He offered us a sample of the rose wine we were thinking of ordering. Good thing as it wasn't to our preference. So, we opted for a different wine instead. We were hoping for a pitcher of Margaritas, but it wasn't available on the menu. Too bad, any chance of making that available on a future menu change? We ordered a few appetizers and a pizza so that the four of us could share. We enjoyed the food and the quick and frequent check-ins by Harry. It was a really enjoyable evening.

    We went there with group of four. It was little bit of wait that night because of place being super busy. After we got the table everything was super fast. Our drinks was on time and food was nice and warm. Our server was super friendly and took care of us. I always enjoy my visit to tap & barrel shipyards. Its my favourite place in north shore.

    Our waitress was so professional and polite, attentive and pleasant. I do find it very frustrating when we got there and there are four staff gathered around the hostess stand ignoring us when we finally tell them of our reservation and name she points us to a bench to wait it just seemed rude almost dismissive, even the other person directed to take the bench commented to us, lm not nit picking, no one wants to be treated like cattle. But as usual my steak frites was perfect and my partner enjoyed their meal as well. Thanks
