Quaint restaurant with great food and wine. Service is always superb.
Once again, this local gem did not disappoint. I had the cassoulet and it was excellent. The tart tatin we had for dessert was just the best. Our waiter was attentive and had great sense of humor. Thanks to Olivier and the team!
Lovely authentic French bistro. Specials are always delicious and seasonal.
I've given this restaurant FIVE second chances, because I like the owner and I want him to do well. I've been going since its inception, several years ago.
But he's not watching the kitchen. A few days ago I went & ordered the special: duck breast with chestnuts & foie gras, with cabbage & mushrooms. The duck was stone cold, barely any chestnuts and certainly no detectable foie gras. Not much cabbage - mostly apples.
The last five times I've been, with four of us, at least one meal comes later than the other 3, and there's something not right with one of the entrees (a fish appetizer with barely detectable fish, meat not cooked as ordered...). The chef is cheap and Olivier is not paying attention to the kitchen.
The food, service and overall experience were delightful
We had the prix fix Thanksgiving menu which started with the beef cheeks confit. This is a rich, delicious beef in sauce on toast, and it is a wonderful and delicious treat! They should keep that on the menu year round!
Second course was Turkey, green beans, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. This was moist and delicious turkey, and the combination was great. Nice sized portion too.
The chocolate dessert was very satisfying, and the service was good. The heated outdoor area was perfect, very charming and not noisy at all. The total price was reasonable.
This is a solid choice in a neighborhood, family restaurant. I think you will like it!
Trout, proscuitto, and beurre blanc sauce were a wonderful blend of flavors. Can't wait to go back and try the regular menu.
This is a great restaurant for French country meals. My husband is notoriously picky about trying new foods. At L'Appart Resto the chef's skill, thorough menu descriptions & relaxed atmosphere has him trying items I've never seen him eat before. Plus, when the weather is warm, the patio has several dog-friendly tables.
I've reviewed L'Apart many times, we always have a great meal here. So glad that fall is here and Cassoulet is back on the menu. Usually hubs and I split it and another entree. This time he informed me that he wasn't going to share, I'd have to get my own. I'm glad I did! L'Appart has downsized the the portion size (not a bad thing) but the flavors remain the same, absolutely wonderful.
Excellent food. Heated patio not as loud as main room. We will return again as there were many dishes on the menu that we would like to try.
Escargot was hot enough but I couldn't taste any garlic. Bone marrow was tasty but overloaded with bread crumbs. Fois gras was absolutely perfect. Spot on. Good job chef. Hub us boar shank was lovely but he would have liked it a bit more tender.
Interesting French menu, well-executed. Several good gluten-free choices, which is really nice for those of us with special dietary needs. This was our second time at L'Apart Resto and we were very please both times.
Thank you once again for great food and service on my daughters 17th birthday.
We went for our anniversary and had a great time. The food was very good. I ordered stuffed mini pumpkins because I'd never seen that on a menu and it so flavorful, and such a cute presentation! I had started with the creamy cauliflower soup, and they put good bread on the table, so I was stuffed by the end. My husband's tagliatelles au lapin was also delicious. Good wine choices and courteous staff.
Best burger in Marin, and everything else is fantastic as well.
Beef was dry. Cod was fair.
The food was incredible...such attention to detail on the subtle blending of flavors. I would definitely go back to try more. It was so nice not to have to drive into the City to find cuisine at this level. No hassle with parking, and the restaurant wasn't at all crowded. It made for a relaxing and enjoyable evening.
Chef has conceived a shortlist of appetizing and creative dishes. Many ingredients are locally sourced and farm fresh. Service is highly professional and friendly. Prices are quite reasonable.
The evening was pleasant so we ate on the patio starting with sharing the endive & blue cheese salad, followed by mussels & the hanger steak cooked to perfection with Wonderful french fries. Ice tea & sparkling pinot noir were our drinks of choice during our meal. We finished with 2 decaf coffees & a wonderful warm chocolate cake stuffed with a raspberry ganache served with whipped cream. We certainly did consider their prix fix 3 course menu for $35 which was a bargain. Would love to return soon.
The food was delicious and the service was good. It will make it on our "frequent restaurant list.
