We have been here 4 or 5 times and ways find the food and service to be very good.
We stick to ordering the "small plates" each time as we find those to be the most interesting and best
Beware of the parking problem on days they do not have valet parking. It can be a problem.

Have enjoyed two "girls nights" at this restaurant, so felt it was about time to take my husband! Our appetizers of beet salad & risotto balls were both delicious - he then enjoyed the tuna with pistachios and I had a red snapper special. Both were above average, if not perfect. Would I go back for a fourth time - yes!

Vibe is a bit upscale, but not fancy - jeans are fine. Extensive wine list, but not overly pricey.
Maitre d' is attentive and helpful as needed.

Definitely can recommend - enjoy!

We discovered the secret to a nice romantic Valentine dinner. Go for lunch instead! No crowds. Better service. Lunch instead of dinner prices. No reservation needed. We're not being cheap. Just realistic. Same restaurant, same food, same ambience, same wait staff. Different time! And it couldn't have been nicer than at Aperitif. Outstanding mussels, great stuffed crepe, service was concerned but not overbearing. Warm, toasty bread. French fries were perfect. Creme brulee was outstanding. Nice sized portions of everything. We washed it all down with a nice bottle of Malbec and French coffee. All for 80 bucks! We loved the place and will return. Next time we'll try it for dinner (but not on Weekends or Valentine Day.)

We were pleasantly surprised to find this place - location has been 16 different things but this incarnation is a winner for me. Menu is varied, appeals to all. French/Euro is carried out well but not overbearing. renovations to the space are really well done for creating the old-world feeling of a Euro cafe. The waiters were professional and helpful - and fun even.... the wine list and nightly wine specials were accessible.... Some street noise, but that lent to the 'city' effect, and a great buffer vestibule from the street made all tables comfortable. 3 of us enjoyed an array of 'small plates' to share - stuffed and tipsy from adult beer + scotch+ wine+ cordials, was less than $250.
we went early at 6 to an empty space - but if filled to capacity by 8 - good for them.

I have been here a few times and the food was always good. You need to go on an off hour if you don't want to wait for a table. The staff has always been really nice and attentive. Romantic place too.
