The brussel sprouts and hush puppies were so good and so different than you’d find anywhere else. I can’t wait to go back and try the steak and cheese egg rolls and the chicken rice bowl.
The menu is well thought out and the food quality is amazing.
The host was very nice and seated us right away.

We had Brussel sprouts and philly cheese steak egg rolls. Went on a Thursday night, pretty busy. We will be back again. Loved those brussel sprouts.

Stopped here tonight for dinner on our way to Hartford, based on TripAdvisor reviews. Had a fabulous dinner - we thoroughly enjoyed the short rib flat bread (5 stars) and the quinoa and pear salad (excellent). Had outstanding personal service from our server, Erica has well. What a gem in Wallingford, very close to the Merritt parkway. Well done, kudos to the staff and chef, will definitely be back!

After reading reviews and Facebook posts, my husband and I decided to give Tap & Vine a try early this past Friday night. We were familiar with the old restaurant which was a dark, typical neighborhood bar and were happy to get a spot in the small parking lot. A hostess greeted us right away and the light, open feeling of the new decor was impressive. The brick wall was still there, but new tables, bar area, and lighting were fresh and inviting. We scanned the menu and couldn’t believe the extensive on tap beer selection and the comprehensive wine list as well. Drinks arrived quickly and after telling our waitress that this was our first visit, she welcomed us and answered our questions about the unique menu. It definitely was not a typical bar menu. We ordered the tomato, onion, basil soup which was wonderful, full of onions and just delicious and unusual. My husband had a cheeseburger.There was a choice of roll, brioche or pretzel. He chose brioche with sweet potato fries and he loved it, cooked perfectly, juicy with fresh lettuce and a nice slice of tomato and onion. The waffle fries were yummy! I had the chicken and rice bowl. The waitress asked if I wanted jalapeños which I eliminated. It was also delicious and a bit spicy; small pieces of chicken, Spanish type rice, avocado etc. presented beautifully. We than shared the chocolate moose cake for dessert. Again, yummy! Our waitress was great; efficient, pleasant and right there when we needed her. By the time we left, around 7:00 the restaurant was full and bustling. We can’t wait to go back to try some other dishes!

Tap and Vine is a local haunt. Their tap beer selection is fantastic and they make a good cocktail. The food is average and tends to be on the salty side. Service suffers when it gets busy so order your food before you’re primed! All in all it’s not bad and worth a try.
