App's turned out to be the perfect place for a nice, quiet Mother's day meal for my favorite mom in the world. Everything from cocktails, the wine, appetizers to dessert was just great. Our booth was in the perfect cozy location. Quiet and elegant. Just what we were looking for. Our entrees were the stuffed shrimp ( huge portion )... More

The menu and food here are very good. Portions are big. The last time I was here, I got the prix fixe dinner (3 courses) and was stuffed. I highly recommend their broccoli rabe with sausage! Service is hit or miss. It just depends on the server.
