While we were evacuated from the wildfire zone in October, we had a peaceful, comforting dinner at L'Appart Resto. Wonderful food, well-prepared, and served with kindness. It was a warm evening and we enjoyed sitting on the patio.

The food is still good, but the limitations of the menu are more noticeable. Bread great. Service somewhat spotty, uneven, less responsive.
