Went here after third Friday. We were greeted by owner upon entering. Good wine selection. Limited menus but all food is freshly prepared. Service was excellent. Parking is on the street and reservations are not necessary.

This is the toughest place to review. We go there a few times a year. Great wine selection. Apps are quite flavorful but on the skimpy side. Only had dinner there once and never tried again. Nothing in particular but a full dinner just seemed beyond their ability or inconsistent with their atmosphere. Kinda vague, sorry. Sitting at the bar... More

Dear Tampa2020 Glad you enjoyed your visits with us. Try dinner next time; we're sure you'll enjoy our new chef's menu. There's usually a good amount of jazz in our background music; maybe you caught it in between. HowardL, Owner More

We had bad service and bad food at high prices here. My wife's pork had to be sent back twice because it was under-cooked and visibly raw in color. The waitress was over-slow at best, if that is an acceptable way to describe her movements. Just stay away if you want to avoid being unhappy.

Dear BuzGuy There's always two sides to a story so I always try to understand the writer's viewpoint. Review sites don't fact-check these things, but here's what I know to be factual. You did not get bad service. Your server is friendly, polite, efficient, and described your interactions as quite cordial even when dealing with your wife's food issue. Food... More

Can't find too many good things to say about this restaurant. Very short pour for the wine at a high price....service was mediocre...ordered pork tenderloin and had to send it back twice because it was under-cooked...ordered medium (because it's pork). Asked for bread....took so long the appetizer was cold by the time we got it. Will not return.

Dear PagStar Thank you for visiting us. I was also disappointed about the problem with your entree but only found out after you had left. Just a note on the wine pour; for you and other readers; we use extra large glasses which can make the pour seem small but we do, in fact, measure every serving to ensure nobody... More

I went on a 3rd Friday night so I'm not sure if they were under staff for the night or if service is always slow. The staff couldn't have been friendlier but it was a good 30 between visits.

Dear Katheryn S Glad you visited us and Safety Harbor for the 3rd Friday event. Yes, we were short a couple of the team that night, so thanks for being patient. Our usual service is not hurried. We encourage guests to relax, take their time, don't rush, but we can also expedite if needed. HowardL, Owner More

We were here a couple years ago and did not enjoy it...but this time it was a much different experience. Great service at all levels, good description of what was in each dish, plenty of food, and fun atmosphere. They have come along way over two years. Thanks for taking our large group and making it a fun evening!

Welcome to Tapping The Vine™… where you’ll hear conversations not televisions, and where the ambience is comfortable, easy going. Many of our guests tell us we have the best wine and some of the best food in Safety Harbor.
Our new spring menu, created with passion by our Chefs Alex and Miguel, will delight your taste buds. As always, our many Gluten Free appetizers, entrées, and desserts are simply delicious. Our chefs can also create Vegan or Vegetarian dishes upon request, too. We can confidently meet most dietary needs, but please let us know when you make your reservation.
Tapping The Vine™ is truly comfortable for your next date night, casual for a birthday outing, and special enough to impress anyone for a memorable anniversary dinner. We also adore canine kids, so bring them along for an evening on our pet friendly patio.
We invite you to escape the hectic world. Rush is a music group, not a way to dine. Reservations are highly recommended, so please call or email us to reserve your table. See you soon!!
