Always excellent selection of food and cocktails. The speed of items brought to the table was a bit rushed, two at the same time once, but overall great food, service. I would highly suggest a visit to anyone who likes small plates, but sadly they are closing next weekend.

Service was excellent, but several of the menu options were sold out for the evening. The food was okay. The drinks were fantastic.

Second trip to All Purpose and must say it was just as good as the first. The food is really top notch. Was with a party of three and tried nine plates and all of them were great. The octopus was especially good. Perfectly cooked and very flavorful. Service was great. Highly recommend.

AP never disappoints!
Food is always delicious and we love the creative small plates. Have the roasted cauliflower, gazpacho, bacon wrapped dates and grilled octopus.
Everything we ordered was brilliant and we thoroughly enjoyed our in depth conversation with Justin.

This was not our first visit to AP and having enjoyed our previous visits we were looking forward to a great meal. Unfortunately we were underwhelmed. Both my appetizer, Bacon Wrapped Dates, and main course, Corn Risotto Carbonara, were served too hot to eat and slightly burned the inside of my mouth. In addition the risotto had very little flavor. The wine choice, as recommended by the sommelier, was good. The service and ambience were also good but unfortunately the food was a disappointment.

Very good food but probably size for side dishes (cauliflower) were too small to share despite comment from server. Also service was inattentive at times.
