Sunday night also included live music. My Steak Tartar and Duck entree were delicious. The chocolate mousse was excellent.

Another great find in RC. A really good menu and the food is always great. The appetizer choices are definitely worth trying, especially the mixed board. They also make a really good Spritz,and have a nice martini selection. all told, a great meal every time.

Finally getting around to reviewing Aperitif for my daughter's bridal shower brunch on a Saturday afternoon in June 2016. We were delighted with our event. I live out of state, so I had to rely on the bridesmaids to assess the ambiance and food, and then make all decisions via email and phone calls with the manager, Bernard. The "party... More

Lettuce was old only had one quarter of one jarred beet and I had to search for the smallest crumble of goat cheese. I also ordered the pork ossobucco with... More

Yummy soup to nuts during this first week in November for $27.95. The Ossobucco was tender and delicious over risotto. Loved the Crepes Suzette!! At 6:15 pm it was quiet, but by 7:15 it was packed.

I have frequented Aperitif for years and consider it one of my go-to places to meet up with friends. I do enjoy it and find that it offers good food for good value. However, I am struggling with this review because the way it is managed leaves something to be desired. For example, last Saturday I made a reservation and... More

After having been at "sister" restaurants Sage and Brasserie Persil, this seemed like a slam dunk for another great meal. While the restaurant can't control the parking, even on a Wednesday it was tough to find. Normally good food at a reasonable price would be all it takes to get a good review but sadly nothing else went right either.... More
