They enjoy their opportunity to serve fine food and make your visit one to remember. I your taste buds demand it, they can deliver. Worth a revisit.

We arrived for our reservation at 6:15 PM on a Saturday night and the place was almost full. Restaurant is locally owned by a husband and wife who are hands on and very friendly. Husband was our waiter, funny, patient, full of energy, and very pleasant. We had Mussels Marinieres, Escargots de Bourgogne, Salade de Crevettes Grillees, and the special... More

L'Appart is certainly one of the better restaurants in Marin County. We dined there on a Saturday evening and enjoyed a very pleasant experience food-wise. The service, however, was highly questionable. Our waiter was overtaxed and had trouble communicating with us. Finally, after I complained that we were being ignored and not getting anywhere, this bumbling waiter turned us over... More

The grilled asparagus was perfect, the hamburger juicy and delicious. We ate out on the patio on a very warm evening. It was a little pricey but a good meal. The asparagus was unforgettable!

Ate on the patio terrace with the plastic drop shielding the cold air while the heating lamp was running up above. Kids had the fixe prix menu which was tasty while husband had the mussels which was also very good. Unfortunately, my lobster salad was only so-so and thus, the average rating. Service started to slow down after the entrees... More

We have enjoyed many trips to France, Paris, Caan, Reims, Avignon, L'Appart is Identical to the many small cafes found there. French owners and managers, French cafe menu, relaxing atmosphere inviting conversation. We had a wonderful weekend lunch, including steamed mussels, lobster sandwich sparkling wine and French Pinot Noir, followed by a dessert of vanilla ice cream in a strawberry... More

I ate on the terrace, on a cold evening, and it is protected from the weather and very comfortable. The traditional French onion soup was perfect, not too salty. The monk fish wrapped in bacon was a delight. Great sourdough bread in a French baguette style. Excellent service.

This is nice clean restaurant and quiet. Features a covered out door patio. Staff was good. Small menu with standard french offerings. Tasty but nothing to compel me to offer more than 3 stars. I had lamb and my partner had duck. Nice wine list.
