“FILTHY”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This resturant has one of the worst rating by the Health Board. It is ranked below many Chinese and other low end take out resturants. The presentation layer is fine but signs of the dirtiness is there when you look closely. Waiters in filth covered aprons. Outdoor bar by the river is nice idea but faces the wrong way and has a wierd vibe from the middle aged lounge lizards. Tatooed Posers on Harley Davisdons ordering Wine Spritzer is both comical and sad. Many well to do folks dine and do business here but have no idea what goes on behind the curtain in kitchen.

“Lovely lunch outdoors by the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This was a nice stop for lunch before checking into our hotel down the road. Sat under umbrella table on the patio. Food was good and offered full bar. Prices a bit high for lunch, but probably in line with the area. Pots de creme dessert was excellent. Watching the river and enjoying the flowers made for a very tranquil lunch break! Would consider going back for the white table cloth dinners offered inside the restaurant.

“Horribly over-priced birthday meal- BIG DISAPPOINTMENT”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Wow, new to area, finally ate here--> BIG DISAPPOINTMENT

Took my wife and family for a birthday meal and our "special table was in middle of upstairs room, overlooking tents by river. Service ok, but slow and unexceptional for this price. Food mediocre at best and definitely OVER-PRICED!

Would not go back. Wish I had gone to "Abigail's" which is so much better.

“Quaint”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

I have been to Apricots twice and both experiences were nice. It is a quaint restaurant that sits on the river. Outside seating is available. The bar has a nice cozy feel to it. The staff was friendly and our server was attentive. Both of which are average expectations. Once I got the salad with fresh tuna and on the next visit I ordered the steak salad, which I believe was a special on that particular day. Both were enjoyable. This is not a knock your socks off eatery for me, however I will certainly go back.
