A'vert Brasserie Ratings and Reviews

When I entered the restaurant on Friday night just before 6:00 pm, I was nearly blasted out the door by the noise level. We were seated in a booth in the back which I thought would be a little quieter, but it remained loud until close to 8 when I guess when the happy hour crowd left. Food was delicious but there was not a lot. Glad we had gotten apps otherwise would have left hungry. Server was attentive and apologized for the noise though we could barely hear him! Would go back if you improve the noise level.

Excellent food, though the Beef Wellington did not seem to have engaged the full energy of the kitchen. Wine (Guigal Cotes du Rhone) was pricey but worth every penny. Music, sometimes obtrusive at Avert, was toned down on this evening. Service, by Douglas, was exceptional.

My wife & I had lunch there yesterday, after we had to cancel a dinner reservation for the previous evening due to snow. Fantastic food: croque monsieur, beet salad, mushroom soup. Nice tap selection, welcoming service. We'll definitely be back, this time for dinner.

We went for a birthday lunch! We had been there before for such an occasion and had a great time! This time it was just as good. We had short ribs which were wonderful. We also had seavscallops which were fabulous! It was a Monday so wine was half-price for a bottle. We tried a new Cabernet for us which was Annabela from Northern California. It was quite a treat. We each had one glass and took the rest of the bottle home. Our server, Nora, was an excellent server. We enjoyed her so much that we will ask her next time we're back; and we will be returning. We highly recommend this restaurant to you.

We stopped here on our way to Northern Connecticut. It was a great find. Reminiscent of popular French bistros, the decor was spot on.....black and white tile floors, bistro tables and a menu with both French and American offerings. It is a bit snug on the seating, but the food made up for it. My husband and I both had scallops which were delicious, and their wine special, a blend of grapes, which was surprisingly good. Service was attentive and timely. Totally enjoyed it!

My wife and I and another couple had dinner at A'vert Brasserie. The food and service was tremendous. A road bump to the evening was that we had a set a reservation at 6:45 but we were not seated until 7:30. The wait staff acknowledged the issue and we were given a free round of drinks. My only real complaint was the noise level. It is very loud in A'vert and it was difficult to hear. Overall though I would definitely return...just plan on having a drink at the bar. A'vert is a small restaurant and tables don't always turn over as planned.

My friend and I visited Avert for lunch this week. The food was wonderful and the service made me feel as if I was a celebrity in a 5 star restaurant. We had a small issue with our wine and the manager actually came over, replaced the wine, and took it off our bill.
Overall, loved it. Can't wait to go back.
Only comment to consider, seating for two is very close to the next couple, which can make conversation difficult. There are so,e quieter seating areas, however

Food was excellent in every way, as was the wine we had; service was attentive except waiter forgot to offer and bring pepper for salad, and checked back only at the end of that course; if one sits too close to the door, it can be drafty on a cold night; noise level was quite high, though in a positive way, but certainly not a quiet restaurant. We would definitely go again.

Great ambience and food with fantastic service. Really let you relax between courses and had such a great time didn't realize we were there 4 hours. Most relaxing dinner I've had in a long time...cannot wait to go back again. Definitely on my list of favorites.

Wonderful NYE dinner. Price Fixe NYE menu had many choices. We started with the beet salad and frog legs. have never had and have to say the dish was delicious. Beef Wellington and short-ribs were the entrees. Both were excellent. portions of both apps and entrees was generous.
Have had many nice evenings at Avert and highly recommend.

First time @ Avert on my birthday and NYE. Love, love, loved each and every course. I was most pleasantly surprised by the duck confit appetizer (was like an entree in itself!). And, the halibut entrees we both had were cooked to absolute perfection. Can't wait to return to try escargot and bouillabaisse!

I took my 8 years old out for lunch for NYE celebration. We have never been to this restaurant before and I love French cuisine, so I picked the place. It is a bit cramped. A couple at the next table was literally elbow to elbow with us, but it turned out to be the greatest thing ever. They were such a charming old school couple! Somehow we ended up joining the conversation and enjoying our meal even more than I expected. The food was great. My son loved his pasta, I absolutely loved my scallops with asparagus, all 4 of them. Yep, the portions are small, very French style indeed, but delicious. My only disappointment was with our waiter. He was not exactly rude, but he could use extra training on how to treat customers the proper way.

Very pleasant bistro style French restaurant.
Had the scallops with a glass of Sancerre, which paired well with the scallops.
Tables are close together, but we were lucky enough to know the pair sitting beside us.
Friendly, pleasant, great French cuisine.
Love the bread.
Love the atmosphere.

The service was prompt and efficient . The food was very good, excellent escargot and creme brûlée, but I don't recommend the bouillabaisse. The price point is good value for a French restaurant. The wine list is good but not outstanding. It is good enough that I plan to return.
