Nice microbrewery and upscale restaurant in Brea, judging by the prices of the entrees. Great selection of dishes and the food was quite good. Not a 5 but a 4.5. Good service and great ambiance. Recommended if you are not on a budget

We come here often and it really never disappoints. Sometimes the wait is a bit long, but they work hard to accommodate in a timely manner. My husband is not much of a fish eater, unless he comes here. It is the only place I can get him to get a nice piece of fish and he always eats the... More

Good food, atmosphere and beer & wine selection! Either you go there for Happy Hour, or Brunch it's always a treat to go there! My favorite is the bread / oil dip that is delicious! Steamers, pizzas and calamari are tasty! If you like oysters they have several kinds to choice from! Always a delight to go there, grab a... More

Met my daughters at Taps for lunch. Seating was quick. It is a beautiful restaurant and the food is good. Just one negative, service seemed to be slow however. Two of us had to go back to work but the waitress didn't pick up on that and it seemed to take longer than necessary to get our drinks, our food... More

Cocktails and beer fine, but had to remind waiter twice about wine order. Oysters Rockefeller ok (not in a special dish, just a bowl with rock salt) but my daughter's fish puttanesca seemed so overcooked it was stiff (knife bounced). The waiter took care to accomodate the child in our group, though. Desserts were great- 2 desserts and seven spoons... More

The food was very good, service average and nice atmosphere. Alittle pricey. The resturant was suggested to us by friends for dinner. We have gone for Sunday brunch and they have excellent variety.

From the moment you walk in, you feel at home. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Great selection of brews both their own and bottled. The food was great as well. Parking, not so good, but they are building a brand new parking structure next door.

Thank you for the kind feed back! And for your patience as the parking is being renovated. We also provide a $5 off your bill of $25 or more when you show your server your valet ticket option in case parking is hectic, especially around the holidays. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you back! More

Went to lunch today to recoup from the Black Friday madness. We always like sitting in the bar area to eat and watch football......Server was kind and attentive........Wife had the Clam Chowder (a little to thick for her liking) but good. I had a cup of the Gumbo, and we both shared the Ceviche. This dish is so fresh and... More

Trendy overpriced if you are looking to be seen then go here, if you are looking for a nice dinner go to Cedar Creek, Summit house or Cat and the custard cup or the cellar Nicer and not overpriced. Another trendy place not so far from Taps is Tempo great food.
