    I cannot endorse L'Appart enough! Everything from the food to the service to the ambiance was phenomenal. We brought two bottles of our own wine and the staff was kind enough to waive the corkage fee. The caviar supplement we added was incredible and worth the extra fee. Every course was delicious, inventive, and memorable. This is my new favorite fine dining french restaurant in NYC. Without exaggeration, this meal was up with there with chef's tasting menu experiences I've had at the Daniels, Jean Georges, Le Bernadins, etc. of the world. It may even surpass them.

    Transcendental food and formal but light hearted service made for a very memorable birthday. Caviar flight was outstanding. Every single offering in the Chefs menu was a full six-sensory experience. One of the best meals in a long time.

    Interesting and unique locale. The tasting menu is extensive, and the beautifully presented morsels just keep coming. It is expensive, so to me it is a special occasion restaurant (went there for our 30th wedding anniversary.) We don't normally order the wine pairings, but we're glad we did. The pairings were varied, and delicious. Finally, the service was excellent, the staff was hospitable and attentive, and they acknowledged our anniversary celebration.

    Stunning. From the moment we arrived (around 5:30pm) we felt welcome, as if we had been invited to an intimate family dinner. The kitchen and wait staff form a well integrated team. The service was attentive, charming, and perfectly timed. The food was delicious and adventurous. We particularly enjoyed the foie gras with chestnuts and butternut squash. The wine pairings complemented nicely without overwhelming the food. We would gladly return any day. Thank you Chef Nico.

    Amazing service and truly quality prepared food. This was the best experience I've had in an NYC restaurant (having been to many of the Michelin rated restaurants thus far) The touch of meeting the Chef and his team beforehand was a beautiful touch to an intimate experience with the food. One part I think can be improved is the transparency into the prefix choices. I only now realized there were a few options and we were presented the menu in a sort of "FYI" fashion. Just worth noting your options when you have a chance!

    This place is a little hidden in La District, however we were greeted at the door with a little cocktail (so yummy we had to try a bit more...) Then got to select our table and introduced us to the chefs. Dinner was an affair to remember. Generous wine pours. Optional caviar and cheese courses made this a 5 hour dinner. Totally worth it.

    Wonderful personalized experience. You can choose from 1, 2 , or 3 "main course" options. We chose 3 and were super full. Next time might just do 2 and add the cheese course. There were so many wonderful little parts to the meal and the service was impeccable. It is a very small intimate location and amazing to get to feel so special to be there. Wonderful service and experience. Highly recommended.

    We have very strict dietary requirements, and L'Appart accommodated all of it. And not once, did we feel as if the creativity, taste, or presentation was the least bit compromised. The service was lovely, not intrusive, but friendly and also not stuffy. Although it is a tasting menu, it is very flexible and we didn't walk away feeling as if we had eaten too much. Altogether, it was a wonderful meal and a wonderful evening. We are going back with friends soon!

    We celebrated a birthday at L'appart. Everything was fantastic. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodated everything we asked for. Two of us were vegetarian and the created a really nice menu for us both. They have very good non-alcoholic tea pairing which went really well with the food. The prices are reasonable for a tasting menu and it has a very cozy feel. We would definitely come back again!

    We enjoyed the tasting menu, portions were perfect for the many courses. The wine paring was very nice, full glass complimenting each course. Chef comes to the table to greet guests, open kitchen was well organized and very quite. All of the Chef's signed my husband's personal menu sending birthday greetings. The dining room is comfortable, no dress code is required, although most guests were business casual and some men wore jackets. Definitely would go back!

    We went to L'Apartment for our 35th anniversary. The staff was remarkably welcoming, friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and plentiful, but not overwhelming like most tasting menus. The room was very pretty and most importantly, unlike most restaurants these days, we could talk to one another without shouting. There was no attempt to rush us out but on the other hand, the service was extremely solicitous. Also, LeDistrict and the whole Brookfield Place environment is really cool. Would recommend to everyone for a special night.

    Food is inventive and well presented. Service was spot on and well coordinated. Kudos for a well-paced meal that never dragged but was never hurried. Waitstaff was almost clairvoyant reading our needs. The room is intimate and sumptuous. Cheese tray was memorable, and some of the vegetable were eye opening revelations. For this caliber dining, the price is a bargain. I have paid plenty more for much less.
