    Service was awesome, food was hot & delicious (other than a burnt burger that was supposed to be medium-well), drinks & music gave fun chill vibes! This was my 3rd visit & they’re consistent. My teenage daughters love dining there with me!

    It was really loud with the large groups so it was very hard to hear us talk amongst ourselves. They need some acoustic sound boards in the ceiling.

    Clearly late lunch business is not welcomed. Not sure why reservations are available if the staff is unhappy to have a 1:45 seating which was abundantly clear. Less than 10 minutes after being seated told the kitchen needs our order, and 45 minutes after reservation as we were eating our entrees being told a 2nd drink would be a “last call.” I was embarrassed to have suggested this place to my friends, but previously it had been very enjoyable.

    Everything was so flavorful, creative, and well-presented. The only minor complaint was the wait for the food being a bit more extended than I remember from past visits, but overall it was excellent.

    My COOLinary experience at Apolline was amazing! The food was delicious and seasoned to perfection. The grilled lamb in my opinion was the star of the show. I wish these dishes could be added to the restaurant's regular menu. I will definitely be returning to this restaurant soon!

    The food is great -- always save room for dessert! This time (and only this time), the service was marginal. I had to ask for a spoon for gazpacho and when it didn't arrive 5 within 5+ minutes, I hunted down the bar-tender for a spoon. We were seated at our reservation time (6:45) but didn't get our first course until 40 minutes later. And it wasn't that crowded on a Sunday night. However, that's our only incident of poor service and I would still recommend Apolline to anyone wanting a great meal.

    We were excited to go back to Apolline after having a great dinner there a couple of months ago. Unfortunately last night’s dinner fell flat. The gazpacho and the Couvillion were too spicy to enjoy. Our server did the best he could with the limited staff the restaurant had. This allowed us to have a second bottle of wine, which is always a plus.

    Thursday for lunch and we ordered the enchiladas and an omelet, bottomless mimosas and a bloody. #1 Service was fantastic, the bottomless drinks never saw the bottom and everything was timely and spot on. The food was very good and prepared and presented very well. What a nice experience and lunch.

    The fish for the couvillion was too strong. Usually red fish is used. The menu could use more choices. The menu on line had more choices. The batter on the fried green tomatoes kept falling off.

    This place is a neighborhood gem. The ambiance is upscale and classy in a modern way. Our server Annie was great- as well as the whole staff around her. We had the Coolinary prefixed meal and all of it was yummy. Wonderful salad. Fresh trout. Mango sorbet. All really good. Made for a lovely evening!!

    We were sat at a table that was space for two but we had a party of four. While parties of two were sat at a table for four. The hostess needs to consider this to make the dining experience more enjoyable. We had to keep moving glasses and plates around our table as food was delivered to avoid items falling off the table or into our laps. Thank you.

    From start to finish, this place was incredible! Adam was super attentive, offered great recommendations and made us all feel so welcome. The food? Some of the best we’ve eaten in the city! We had a party of 10, and not a single plate was left with food on it. If you’re in town, don’t skip out on dinner here!

    I didn’t have anything against the wait staff for anything but we didn’t have salt and pepper on the table and when they brought it it was tiny little salt and pepper shakers and barely any seasoning came out of them. ?

    9 in our party in town for a conference gave us a chance to try multiple entrees on the menu. The salmon, veal and shrimp and grits all got high marks, but the hands-down winner was the pork chop!! Finished the evening with great bread pudding and chocolate cake. The waitstaff was very service oriented and took good care of our group. The only negative was they were out of our first two choices of wine, but recommended a substitute that was quite good.

    Inventive, delicious menu and superlative service. Save room for dessert -- you want, need, MUST HAVE the flourless chocolate cake -- it's the best version I've ever had (and I've had a lot!). I also like the fact that you can get half a bottle of wine which worked for us (one drinker and one non-drinker).
