“Awesome decoration, great food, poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

We have tried this very good restaurant, my wife and I. The decor is awesome, they managed to re-create the interior of a Parisian style apartment and I must say the results is very pleasing. You can choose the seat inside or enjoy the outside terrace with a stunning view on Bangkok. The restaurant provides a kind of lounge atmosphere between the dining place and the terrace which create different pleasant environments. The food was really good, a bit pricey but very good. The service on the other hand does not match the level of this fine dining place. The restaurant manager had very little interaction with us, nobody asked us how our dinner went and despite ordering the wine at the beginning, we had to ask twice before getting it served. A bit of more smiling and welcoming feeling would have made our night just great, too bad. But honestly, putting the service aside, if you would like to spend a romantic night or a good moment among friends, I would certainly recommend this place.

“Bringing in the New Year in style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Rather spending New Year's eve chasing the right place to be this year we opted to guarantee a night to remember by booking a table with friends at L'Appart. We had a fantastic night. The set menu was fascinating (reflecting the imagination of the chef) and this certainly expanded my own pallet. Magicians and sketch artists roamed the venue bringing an extra element to the early night. Great food, company and incredibly attentive service made for a lovely evening. As the night went on there was good music and fun atmosphere (we took over the roulette table for some riotous non-betting). The view over Bangkok at midnight was spectacular and a memorable ni.ght was had by all.

“The Sky's the Limit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a great rooftop restaurant and thoroughly recommend. Have to confess that our first visit
was shall we say a little unwelcome 'but' after an initial problem with our booked table everything was fine. So what can I tell you - Amazing views, great ambience, the lounge music was great and if you do like siting outside then this really is a fantastic venue. The food was the best I had eaten in Bangkok and presentation was perfect. Try the snowfish, very delicate but with a lot of flavour and soft texture. Overall a well balanced menu. As regards the wine - best to ask what they have rather than go thro the wine list only to find they don't have it. Perfect cheese plate to finish the meal. Please try it.

“An Amazing Treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

A friend who I know from the US was a guest chef at L'Appart last week. He's French and owns a restaurant in HKG. I'd never had the chance to try his cooking, so I jumped at the chance to do so. And amazing it was! A five course meal which included shrimp two ways, foie gras accompanied by a beet root shake, Maine lobster, pork belly and a mango dessert, all accompanied with wine pairings. Each course was exquisitely presented, combining flavors in an interesting way. If ever in HKG, I shall definitely dine at his restaurant -- I'm impressed!

The restaurant itself is beautiful, the outdoor terrace providing stunning views as well as a nice breeze. The service was some of the best I've encountered in BKK. Attentive, without being overbearing. Chef, maitre d all came out to explain dishes, check on our progress, etc.

When in the mood to splurge for some wonderful French food, I shall definitely be back at L'Appart.
