Our dining experience here was most enjoyable: a very pleasant atmosphere, and we enjoyed Olivier's wry humour. The food was of a high quality, and we are keen to return. A small detail was that, even inside the restaurant, we felt a little cold on the April evening we were there.

This is a great little restaurant in downtown San Anselmo. It has a very laid-back atmosphere - in the summer, if you have a dog, you are welcome to have him/her under your table (of course, good dogs only!) We often just "drop in" here during brunch, or if I don't feel like cooking in the evening (who said that...)... More

If you want some excellent French cooking in a laid-back atmosphere, this is the place. They also have lovely outdoor seating and it's very kid friendly. Very good wine list as well!

It is a small restaurant so service is efficient and pleasant. The menu is typical of a French cuisine inspired bistro and quite authentic.

The food was incredibly good, but the wait time was exceptionally long, and that was on a Monday night. It took 15 minutes to even get a drink order in and it took almost 2 1/2 hours to complete the meal. They had two waiters. One poor waiter was also having to work the bar. He was very polite and...

Hi, I am Olivier, one of L'Appart Resto owners, I would like to thank yo for your review, and apologize about the service that didn't reach our standards. I was not expecting MLK monday night to be that busy and obviously should have schedule one more person at least. I hope to see you again soon, and will make sure... More

One of the few restaurants open for Thanksgiving Dinner. The menu was prix fixe @ 45 per person - way more food than the two of us usually eat. They very kindly allowed us to split one meal. The ambience was very pleasant, the service really top of the line and the food just right.

Real nice French restaurant with friendly waiters and a nice area to sit outside. I ordered moules et frites which were brought to my table promptly, fantastically cooked and presented and with a smile on the face of the waiter. A good place to eat!

The best French food wthout the attitude! We moved from the Bay Area to the east coast a year ago and have yet to find a place like L'Appart.
