Tap & Table, the 14-month-old restaurant in Corn Hill Landing, hums with activity on a Saturday night. It’s one of the most talked about, written about, and Yelp-ped about players on the local food scene in the past year. In 2012 it won City Newspaper’s readers’ poll for best new restaurant. It’s got a great view of the Rochester skyline and the Genesee River. Its bar selection is expansive, and it prides itself on a commitment to “fresh, farm to table” dining. There’s even valet parking on Friday and Saturday nights.
All of the above points to an enjoyable dining experience. There are enough misfires, on not-inexpensive items, however, to suggest that Tap & Table’s buzz isn’t matching its execution — at least, not yet.
