Delicious food, attentive staff. The restaurant is small, so tables are a bit tight, and you for sure know everything happening at your neighbor's table. But worth it for the great food.

Everything was good except the desserts. The appetizer and entrees tasted elegantly, not too sweet and not too salty but very savory. But the dessert was too sweet so it ruined the taste from the previous dishes.

This isn't really a French restaurant. They try, but don't get there. The ventilation is awful. It's a n open kitchen and you leave smelling of grease.

This was our first time here. The manager nicely called me to offer indoor seating as it was going to be raining that evening. The menu was diverse enough, but it would be nice to offer more flavor variety in the desserts. Lots of banana. Perhaps a cake or another tarte option. The sole was a bit bland, but fresh. Perhaps some lemon on the side? The mussels were very fresh. We’ll be back.

We tried the 4 course prix fixe dinner for the first time. Very good selection of courses. Portions a bit smaller than on the regular menu. Accommodating service.
Definitely worth a visit.

Excellent neighborhood restaurant. Delicious food that's always fresh, well prepared and reasonably priced. Accommodating service. My only critique is that the a/c system was a little loud, but that's easy to correct. The general noise level in the restaurant is fine. Highly recommended.

This is a gem - small size can create some less privacy between tables but also creates a charming ambience. Very off the beaten path and worth it - food is delicious!

The fixed price menu has 4 courses for $40. A great value considering the quality of the food. It is not fancy or exceptional but certainly pleasant and tasty. Will go back.

Suggestions: escargot en croute could have had a bit more garlic: duck a l'orange should have had fresh orange segments rather than canned. Small items such as this can make a great deal of difference. Overall, we had an enjoyable evening and will be back.

We have been visiting Appetit Bistro frequently prior to the COVID crisis but first time in the last 12 months the menu was exactly the same , the execution of the recipes was NOT at the same high standard ... Ravioli's (a signature dish) were overpowered with Garlic and the presence of peas was much more prominent in the dish, the cut of the skirt steak was poor and the meat was hard/overcooked despite asking for medium , while both the clams AND the pork chop dishes shared the same broth base ... A quick glance over the open kitchen revealed that the personnel was new , hence the dish preparation / recipe execution differed - and was worse to our opinion ... For $170 for a dinner of two with wine , we were expecting better quality and up to the previous standards.

Although the restaurant is in a mini shopping center, the food was outstanding! The service was great and our waiter was very quick and enjoyable. The chicken scarpariello was delicious with a nice kick of hotness and the linguini with seafood was so fresh and tasty. The creme brûlée was nothing special so I'd try something else for dessert there. My only disappointment was outside seating meant sitting on a sidewalk in a parking lot where there was alot of vehicle activity and one van that was left running with horrendous fumes in our face. Other than that minor blip, the restaurant is fantastic.

Appetit Bistro has simply wonderful chefs in their kitchen. You would think you were eating at a bistro on the Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris. Excellent preparation, presentation and oh so palatable. Everything is cooked and seasoned just beautifully. A must for foodies and those of you craving a little bit of Paris minus the plane ride. Service is attentive as well. Please treat yourself.

The food was excellent, service was wonderful and the price was fair. We had the escargot which was super rich and delicious and the shrimp tempura for apps. Fried shrimp is fried shrimp but the size of the shrimp was big. Then we had the branzino and the veal chop special. The sides that came with the branzino were light and tasty and the veal chop was heaven! We topped off the meal with the banana split. 5 stars on the brûléed bananas!! We will certainly be back. Reserve early bc tables are limited and very tight. If you’re COVID-19 sensitive, maybe get there for the earliest or latest seating.
