I really enjoyed my this restaurant, I went for an late lunch or early dinner meeting with a large group, the ambience is dark lighting, so I do suggest this may be best to go at night with a more intimate crowd. However; it was a great experience, the food and service was wonderful. I would recommend this place to... More

4 of us went to eat dinner on a Sat night. The restaurant is very nice and service.was good. The steaks were a little tough and had a lot of fat on them. For the price they should have been better. But we still had a nice night.

Took my wife here on a date night. We both really appreciated the entire evening. The restaurant is divided into 4 different sections. The Oyster Bar is directly in front of you when you walk in. The the left is the main dining room, to the right is the bar, and beyond the bar is the patio. This is a... More

We had a great dinner at Taps. We sat on the patio and the staff worked the umbrellas like pros to keep us in the shade! The food is very high end, but not overly expensive. It was great!

Taps has great food and drinks. I've only been for dinner and the surf and turf was very good. They also have an oyster bar and they brew there own beer.

Before we get started let me say that for us The Original Fish Company holds the "gold" standard for a seafood establishment. We have driven by TAPS many times over the years and always said we need to go there. So last week on our anniversary we decided to check them out. We had reviewed the menu online and felt... More

$$$ This is an excellent restaurant with professional management, great fresh ingredients, top notch service and high demand. Contact well in advance for reservations. Holidays are normally booked to capacity well in advance. The champagne Brunch and buffet are impressive. The management and Chef Manny along with the kitchen staff provide a full menu of top notch selections. The hostesses... More

Cioppino was a bit spicy, just enough to be flavorful without overwhelming the dish. Generous portions of seafood served with a rustic french bread. I prefer pairing this dish with the traditional crusty sourdough which was also served for the table. Husband had the crusted rockfish. Good, but could have used more seasoning. Dining room was busy & noisy. Waiter... More

Great place for special event and some unique brews. Food is good but can be pricey. Also nice vicinity to go for a walk in downtown Brea.

Thank Scott H
tapsfishhouse, General Manager at TAPS Fish House & Brewery, responded to this review

Thank you Scott for leaving us your feedback, we definitely love hearing from our guests! We hope you enjoyed one of our many unique beers. I suggest, if you haven't tried it yet, the TAPS Hefeweizen. It has a great balance of wheat/banana and spice, its delicious! We hope to see you back again soon! More
