The Grape Tap is our go to restaurant for special occasions. Now that we're not eating out, we ordered takeout here for the first time. The food was just as we expected - delicious as always - we even ordered those spiced nuts. What a...special meal for our 31st anniversary! We can't wait to go back in person soon.More

Love the food. The ambiance is great for a quiet date night. Servers are always good and the food is always excellent. Just wish it was still open for lunch.

I have not been to the great tap and quite a while, but I can tell you that it's always an amazing experience.

Good selection of wine, along with tasty food. Bar to just sit and have a glass. Or seating for an evening out with friends for food and wine.

Excellent service and excellent food. Seating is very tight with tables very close together. Definitely infringed on my bubble. Also very noisy. Could use some sound panels on the walls or ceiling.

This restaurant is absolutely amazing. My husband I had a date night here mid-January. The ambiance is excellent. Ask to be seated downstairs as that decor is particularly very cool. Service was superb, and our meals were delicious. I had the New York steak with...a blue cheese sauce and crumbles served with green beans. My husband had a different cut of steak with a French sauce and asparagus. Both of our meals were phenomenal. We’ll definitely visit again.More

A very cozy home like place with a basement for more private dining. A good place for meats - Nice steaks, Pork, Duck and limited seafood. Alaskan prices - $30plus

We had a romantic dinner here and were very happy with everything we experienced. I would call this a tablecloth 4-5 star here in the valley. Definitely recommend.

House made into a restaurant. Very nice and cozy. Great place for events or date nights or simply just relaxing with a friend. Food is very good. Alcohol selection also very good. Make reservations if on the weekend! Everyone loves it here.

The food is excellent! Our server was wonderful. We sat downstairs and it's a very cozy feel but you sit a bit on top of each other. Recommend making a reservation. I give 4 stars because the price was really high and the portions very...small compared to other places like Settlers Bay Lodge or Evangelos.More

Questions & Answers
Ask a question
Took a friend here for the first time for lunch. The restaurant is a restored old home in Wasilla, AK which is well done on the outside. It has a Tapas Menu (small dishes), but didn't find the food that great or tasty...2 crab cakes, a small chicken sandwich with a slice of pear ,Brie Cheese, a tiny smear of cranberry sauce, on whole wheat bread & 2 glasses of Sonoma Brut @$7 each...the bill was $40 + tip. I think the the other thing we found not inviting was it is small inside, and the table/chairs on almost on top of each other. Making it impossible to sit down without bumping into the next customer at another table, and the noise level is very loud with everyone being cram ,so closed together...we found ourselves talking louder at each other because we couldn't hear each other. Plus, the they have some high table/chairs which are very leg uncomfortable ( maybe good for people who have longer legs). Not sure I would even go back for a dinner meal...wasn't that impressed with food or prices. I think this could be a very quint place if they lose the tall table/chairs & fewer tables , and figure out a different menu and get rid of the Trepas concept...

We were there when there were not very many people. The food is pricey but our customer service was great. So there are ups and downs.
