During my last business trip we went to the restaurant and hard great fish dinners. Every one of us enjoyed what we ordered and shared a few bits. The service was great and we were served quickly and each order was right. The restaurant was clean and the tables and chairs were cleaned after people left quickly. I would recommend... More

This pains me to write because I have been a frequent flyer of Taps since the opened. I have written prior reviews here and Yelp, raving about a thick, juicy, hand formed and flavorful Taps Burger, the best in North Orange County. Friday my party of four went to Taps for dinner. The place was a ghost town, I was... More

We visited TAPS with our dear friends who live walking distance away. We sat outside and it was very comfortable (except for the smokers nearby). The waitress was very attentive and efficient. I ordered the Jambalaya which is usually one of my favorite dishes. It came with two whole shrimp which was a disappointment and the flavor was overwhelmed by... More

We started our evening off with excellent service and attitudes from the staff and it continued throughout our dinner. We enjoyed delicious food. The atmosphere was very quaint with live music. We all four liked it so much we went back two more times during our week stay!

Great place for fresh oysters and drinks! Oh and the breads are served warm and fresh! We always get full from eating so much bread they first bring out and our usual 2dozen oysters. Great selection of wines. Main courses are fabulous but we really enjoy all the appetizers as well. Good for big groups but must reserve in advance.... More

Sunday Brunch reasonably priced ($39.99 each). Low price is mostly because they have filled their brunch buffet with less expensive high carbohydrate items like potatoes and pastas. They do have a carving station (beef and pork loin). So, I guess, in combination with the plethora of starches, I'd categorize it as a traditional 'meat & potatoes' kind of brunch. Overall,... More

Found this brewery on Trip Advisor (on a 4-day flight layover). Sat at the bar. Had a flight of 4 beers, each one very good. Accompanied with an appetizer of Lobster Dumplings, which were great. Order the Mediterranean Sea Bass special. Very good flavor, but slightly over cooked. Friendly staff. Overall, nice brewpub.

Recently wanted a quick bite before flying out of LAX.....a business partner suggested stopping here as it was on the way to the airport. Sat at the bar and enjoyed the food and the drinks selection. The service was excellent...very friendly and engaging but not over the top. Would definitely eat there again...

Taps is a great choice of a restaurant for many occasions: business, first date or large group gatherings. Appetizers (lobster ravioli and calamari) were done right. Bread and butter are continuously served in abundance until food arrives. Drinks are mixed to perfection. Both beef cuts and seafood are sublime! You and your guests will not be disappointed!
