Diner Reviews
  • "The food has always been quite good here. It seems that the wait staff has changed and is not well trained. And the music was blaring too loud, impossible to have a conversation."

  • "Authentic French cuisine, grreat service and food. On the expensive side."

  • "Just had dinner here on July 4th with my wife for our anniversary dinner. Ordered a bottle of champagne on my opentable reservation, and the owner came over to confirm my bottle, as the one that I had chosen had two vintages. Food was great, steak cooked to perfection, prawn-stuffed squash was delicious, though my wife's lobster risotto could have had more lobster."

  • "My daughter ate here recently and raved about how good the food was and I concur, the food and ambience is excelent."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The food was excellent but my guests and I couldn't help feeling that they were trying to rush us through our meal so they could have the table for another customer. For instance, they started taking our plates away while we were still eating!"

  • "great place to sit outdoors and listen to jazz combo on Thursday evenings. food is usually very good--sometimes marred by my request to have everything garlic free (tall order for french restaurant!)."

  • "Finally something local with outdoor dining and wonderful food. A great find - easy casual dining. I went three times for dinner last week. anxious to try it for brunch."

  • "About once a year for some years now we have greatly enjoyed our visits to L'Appart, for the quality, French inspired food and the French atmosphere. This year we were disappointed, specifically: less French (mostly non-French staff, non-French music) and for two of us, mediocre food (the Lobster salad). I fear we have lost one of our former favorites."

  • "I was excited when a client gave me a $100 gift card to L'appart, we have had great times in the past, and we decided to make return for fathers day brunch. My daughter ordered fries. The tomato soup was amazing, best I ever had. burger and fries took a very long time, many of the staff seemed new and inexperienced. The kids were hungry and impatient. When the food did show up it was fine. BIG DISAPPOINTEMENT, we go to pay and were told they were not accepting gift cards. what do you mean, it even says the name of the restaurant on it, how could you not accept it? The machine was down, the manager just left, we had to pay on our own. Its been two days, I left my card for the manager to contact me and still nothing......."

  • "We have dined at L'Appart on a number of occasions. Only once has the service been good. This visit was the worst. It took us over a half hour for our server to show up and finally even get a beverage. About twenty minutes in, my husband went to the bar to get us drinks. The manager told him no and to go back to the table and our server would come. He did ten minutes later. There was no apology for the long wait or offer of a complimentary beverage, appetizer or dessert. The waiter recommended the lobster risotto - there were a few pieces of overcooked lobster in a soupy risotto. Not very good. The lobster salad was good but again, not much lobster. On top of everything, it was Father's Day."

  • "Liked the restaurant allot, but too expensive for casual visits - entree was $28 (delicious); first course $10 (not so good); wine $11/glass (average pour). I will go back but not as often as I would like because of the price. We sat outside which was lovely and very quiet."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "It was another memorable experience dining outdoors on Father's Day. We enjoyed the expanded menu of wider choices."

  • "My bride had the fried squash blossoms to start, the bacon scallops as her main with a class of Sauvignon Blanc, and shared the cherries over vanialla ice cream for dessert. I had a good sized Lobster Salad from the Appetizer section that was off the charts good. Lobster , corn over butter lettuce with a Meyer Lemon vinaigrette. and a couple of glasses of iced tea. Nothing better on a summery Sunday evening!"

  • "We had super mussels, stuffed squash blossoms, and an excellent duck confit. The wait staff couldn't have been better."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "I've eaten here twice before and had good meals, but this time the lamb loin chops which were called a "Lamb T-Bone" were overcooked (not a bit of pink) and tough. Very disappointing. I chose not to send them back because I was with my daughter who hates anyone doing that."

  • "We celebrated my mom's birthday here last sunday and had a great time. They were very accommodating even setting up two tables for 7, one outside, one inside, for us to choose. While the patio is lovely, when the sun goes down, it cools down so we opted inside. Our food was delicious - very french. Steak with a delicious bernaise sauce and crispy frites. I had a steelhead trout cooked perfectly. The creme brûlée and chocolate fondant were excellent sharable desserts. The only thing negative is we brought our own bottle of wine and was surprised at the big corkage fee of $25. We're used to paying $15 but $25 seemed excessive. So be prepared if you bring your own wine. Also, it's not a full bar if you're looking for mixed drinks."

  • "My rating of moderate noise level is for OUTSIDE ONLY! Inside it is absolutely impossible to hear your companions. I don't know why they don't deal with this acute problem."

  • "L'apart was one of our favorite restaurants so I took my mom and grandmother therefor Mother's Day dinner and was embarrassed for my choice. The waiter was less than engaged and helpful. When we told him that the steak was burnt, I mean bitter burnt and covered up wih sauce he just said "yeah" and smiled. Only at he end when he said sorry your food was burnt and gave me a bill with it in here I told him that it was in edible and it was bitter he went to take it off the bill. The remainder if the dishes we mediocre at best. There was heavy rock music blasting te entire night. At the French bistro! We could gladly hear each other. The scallops left me nauseous. The good part of the night was being out with my family. Never going back "

  • "Went for Mother's Day brunch - we all really enjoyed our meals. Husband loved the steak, Mom loved her quiche. I would go again. Service was the teeniest bit snobby , i.e. not overly friendly, but very efficient."

  • "It was the sort of dinner where you slow down and take little bites so that you can savor every bit. Truly wonderful."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "THE FOOD IS CONSISTENTLY DELICIOUS, FRESH, INNOVATIVE AND COOKED TO PERFECTION. THE SERVER STAFF IS VERY POSITIVE, FRIENDLY, AND ALWAYS HELPFUL. THE PATIO DINING IS DELIGHTFUL AND A PERFECT ATMOSPHERE FOR A GREAT EVENING OF DINING WITH FRIENDS OR FAMILY."

  • "Probably my 7th or 8th time dining here. Party of six. Mostly high marks on nine dishes, presentation, but chicken was just okay, mussels tiny, skimpy on scallops for the steep price. Service okay but felt rushed and heavy handed, as if we were in a diner and they needed to turn the table. Our waiter and the hostess were American, so a bit lacking in the usual authentic French atmosphere. Still recommend."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "We not only enjoyed the music(Steep Ravine) but the food was amazing and fresh. We will definitely go back soon. It would be nice if they would post the bands name, date and time on their website or FB page."

  • "L'Appart has created a wonderful oasis in the heart of san anselmo where one can enjoy great food and music on a thursday evening. excellent wines and fine french food accompanied by good service and on a warm night outdoor seating. the place is clean and upscale. the manager is on premises and keeps a watchful eye on things ."

  • "I always felt it was not as good as it's sister le garage but was a close second. Unfortunately the last 2 visits have been disappointing. The servers have never been overly friendly, but we were using a discount voucher and they did not seem happy about it. They tried to up sell us numerous times. Also not great attitude in general. . Made us uncomfortable. , The sardines were good but not great. Steak ok but frites were undercooked. the lovely trout was overwhelmed by too many sundried tomatoes and overcooked snap peas. I really want this restaurant to work because it is a nice spot. I eat at le garage fairly often and think it is very good. L'Appart will be busier of they nail down the food and act nicer to their clients."

  • "This place is in the perfect location but it lacks a vibrant spirit. Our burgers were ok, overcooked and quite small. Overall restaurant looks cute, nice outdoor atmosphere, no music that I noted..I know that French service is a bit different from american but still "friendliness" goes a long way. Even if the servers took the time to pour wine of water for you when the bottles are on the table it would be no sweat off their backs. Could be a gem in the rough if they focused on smiling and making customers feel welcomed."

  • "Our meal started with frog legs, small portion, and not spectacular. The veal dish was a small portion and very average. Not worth going back to."

  • "First visit. Will go back enthusiastically. Nice menu selection. Friendly and attentive service. A gem!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "The atmosphere was friendly and casual. The outdoor area is enclosed and is comfortable with heat lamps. In comparison the inside is rather dark. The service was attentive and good although tea was served without a spoon and saucer. The menu was and wine list were small but varied and offered good choices. The onion soup was excellent and squid dish was delicious. The vegetarian burger consisted of two very tiny buns with tiny amounts what might have been good filling but it was too sparse to taste. Over all we had a pleasant experience and will return."

  • "Our family is very fond of this wonderful local gem in San Anselmo. We often choose it for special occasions, even though the ambiance is casual and informal. The food is wonderful, in the best bistro tradition, and the staff is welcoming and always makes us feel at home."
