I will enjoy much better my dining at Ap Bistro if they get a bigger space in the future. I adore their menu selection just not a fan of tiny tables and going home smelling like food. Nevertheless, we will keep coming back for their food. The branzino entree was delicious but the tuna entree (ordered rare) was outrageous. In my last visit , they don't have the chateau d orignac available 😉 though they post it on the board as an after dinner drinks.

Wow! Just, wow!!

Nestled between a nail salon and bodega in a non-description strip mall in an otherwise residential area, who would have expected such a gem! The food was fantastic. My grilled octopus was tender and perfect and my wife’s tuna tartare was fresh, flavorful and with a perfect amount of “heat” to give it complexity. She had the branzio which was seasoned and grilled perfectly and accompanied by vegetables and an olive tapenade that made it feel (and taste) like we were on the Mediterranean itself. The real star, however, was my Cassoulet - a dish I love and order as often as I see it in menus but NEVER have I had it as good as this. The beans were a complex amalgam blending, but each remaining distinct at the same time, the flavors of the duck, lamb sausage and sage. But for its generous, but not overwhelming, serving I would have left nothing in the dish. As it was, my restraint was rewarded by a desert of the best - absolutely! - tarte tatin I’ve had this side of Vance, Provence, and indeed it would not have shocked me to have left the restaurant and discovered I was in fact back in France.

We cannot be more grateful to the stranger who, as we waited at another restaurant nearby a few weeks ago told us of Appetit Bistro. Whoever you are and wherever you are....thank you, thank you, thank you.

Food was excellent. It is so tight that we were uncomfortable. Also seated by the door and it was cold every time the door opened and the woman next to us was extremely loud with a grating voice. Unpleasant.

I would recommend but warn not to go on Valentines day. The menu was fixed and raised they did not have the entrees I wanted. Food was good overall, but plates were actually small. Not a true French restaurant either, specially the crepes. Service was good. I would give it another try but definitely would not go on Valentines's day

Excellent restaurants ... outstanding food , very good value for money and definitely a place I will go back again and agan... However, there are two issues (same ones , time after time we have visited) : a) Noise level that due to the small space it is not easy to fix AND b) Ventilation which is practically NON existent - this can and should be fixed , every time we dine there we need to have our clothes out of the closet for 2 days as they get a pretty bad smell ...

Four visits and four stars. This little unpretentious restaurant is brilliant in conception and execution. I wish that Westchester - a veritable restaurant desert - had a dozen more restaurants willing to put aires and attitude aside and just serve a straight-up classic menu in a relaxed and casual setting.

We were looking for a place not far from King Street Rehab where my elderly father was recuperating. Found this via online search and what a gem it turned out to be. Food was absolutely fabulous. Each one of the 4 of us raved about what we got and how everyone else had to try it. Beet salad, mushroom ravioli and the hanger steak with fries were excellent. Service was great as well.

I have always loved this place but was disappointed at there New Years Eve menu.When I booked on open table no where did it have a pre fix menu.Someone in my party is deadly allergic to shell fish so there was no starter for him. The soup offered was lobster bisque.It literally was a tablespoon of soup.wow!!!! At $65 a head I think you could maybe give a little more.I understand its New years eve so you can charge a lot but for customers who have been supporting you for ages ,it was nothing special.

A little gem. Delicious food and good service. Small and intimate - a little tight but food and service and ambience make up for it. Have always enjoyed and particularly Loved the New Year’s Eve Prix Fix Menu. 4 courses for $65 was a great value. Tuna tartar and grilled octopus appetizers were very good. My red snapper was outstanding and a very large portion.

We love Appetite Bistro, have been going since it first opened. I usually go with one of the specials- and this past weekend it was Cassoulet as a main course and a seafood medley as an appetizer, and my wife had the sole and frisee salad. Simply stated, delicious! Generous portions one the main courses, great flavors. Nice and varied wine list. The space is tight- but comfortable. The service is friendly and sincere. My only complaint is that the exhaust fan needs more umph- we find when sitting by the kitchen, which is half the tables- ones clothes tend to leave a bit scented. We can live with that, but just a thought to management.

We tried the four-course tasting menu for the first time and it was terrific! The portion size was perfect for the number of courses that we had. The mushroom ravioli was so tasty, and the mussels are also delicious. Great service. We love this restaurant.
