Tap & Barrel is a Vancouver born and bred restaurant group with three locations, all situated in the vibrant waterfront neighbourhoods of Olympic Village, Coal Harbour and Lower Lonsdale. The restaurants offer innovative on-tap beverage programs exclusive to craft beer and premium wine made in British Columbia along with seasonally inspired food menus
This is a fun spot. I love the beer and wine list and the location can’t be beat. The service is fairly average and typical of what you’d expect for a busy mid range restaurant. I also wish they had a few more plant based options.

The place was comfortable and the foods awesome! We were there during the Vancouver Dine Out 2019 and get to tried their 3-course steal menu. I ordered a medium-rare but got an too well meat instead. That's fine though. But their apple crumble dessert was on point! The table service waiting time was fair and waiters are friendly. Definitely a great place to hangout in a group or as a couple.

I am updating my rating from a 3 to a 4 star and adding commentary. This locations GM reached out to me wanting to know about my first experience as I did rate as a 3. I provided my feedback, outlining I was not disappointed but just felt it was average. The fact someone reaches out says something about the bar they want to set. The fact the GM after reviewing my feedback felt they let me down says a lot about how important the customer experience is to them. I have since returned twice, I did not meet or talk to the GM, I enjoyed my meals, and the serving staff was attentive. The location is nice and in the summer take advantage of the patio. Kudos to you Rod, thank you for showing me that customer service is not dead!

Weird beer selection. There are so many quality breweries in BC I was surprised and disappointed with the beer they offer. I can only guess it's because they're within throwing distance of Craft which carries all of them. I appreciate offering the creative and different brews, but just like wine when you want a good Merlot or Pinot Gris, I found little choice for a nice pale ale or porter or lager. Service was good and although I didn't have anything to eat, those that did were happy with their orders.

Poke Bowl was a tasty and healthy option to the usual burgers & fries or fish & chips. Upstairs seating has a nice water view of False Creek and BC Place Stadium. Menu items are a bit pricier than comparable restaurants. Good atmosphere and nice selection of beer on tap.
