A'vert Brasserie Ratings and Reviews

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.

Overall a pleasant experience. We were seated near a larger group who appeared to be over served based on their volume and the fact that one person fell off his chair. It was a minor distraction. The food was good. Service fine. I ordered a second glass of wine and instead of getting the same as I ordered initially I was brought (I think) a glass that was more expensive (that's what I was charged at least) and it came when I was almost finished my meal. Thinking back I wish I said something at the time.

There seems to be a disconnect at this place between the food and the ambience. Although the food was very good French inspired offerings, there were a few things that made the evening less enjoyable than we would have liked. First, there was an extremely noisy beer tasting event going on at the bar. Since half of the restaurant is a bar, it was impossible to have a conversation because of the noise level. I wish when I had made the reservation, I had known about the planned event. Secondly, although the food was very tasty and nicely presented, and our waiter was very attentive, a piece of food was left out of one of our dishes - forgotten in the oven. When the omission was pointed out, this was quickly corrected, but it still was not presented as it should have been. Apologies were given, but a free dessert or other offering would have been appropriate.
The food was mixed this time. The Duck C ...
The food was mixed this time. The Duck Confit appetizer, my past favorite, was very disappointing. The confit was soggy - not crispy as it should be, and the frisse salad was limp and not fresh. On the other hand, the butternut squash soup was outstanding and my friend was very happy with her scallops. The waiter couldn't have been nicer, too.

Wonderful food, terrible noise level. In what is an intimate bistro setting, we had to yell across the table in order to be heard by our friends on a recent Sunday evening visit when the bar scene was exceptionally vibrant. Had we known that there was little separation between bar and restaurant, we would not have chosen this restaurant to meet friends whom we hadn't seen for a while. On the other hand, the food was nicely prepared and presented (except for the escargots, which were rubbery) and as time wore on and the bar cleared, we found our dinner was a little more relaxed. We especially appreciated the glasses of bubbly offered in recognition of both couples' wedding anniversaries.

Went for brunch yesterday for the first time. I got poached eggs and my boyfriend got the waffle. We both got the breakfast potatoes. Everything we had was amazing. Even the coffee was so good. We can't wait to go back for brunch again. Highly recommended!

The food was delicious. We had a special, Coq au vin which my husband loved. I had filet mignon which was delicious but a bit under cooked. The cocktail was delicious but expensive. We had the deconstructed peach Bellini. The noise level is very high so this is not the place for a quiet conversation.

Great food, service and ambiance in a fun setting in wonderful West Hartford, CT. Our party of four was very happy with the four different entrees we ordered. Desserts were amazing too. Fun, classy atmosphere without being stuffy.

We were celebrating 4 birthdays and had left that message on the reservation. However, that was not acknowledged by the host or waitperson. The waitperson could have been a bit more attentive - I had to try to catch her attention too many times.
Even at lunch it was quite noisy.
The restaurant was very chilly and we had to ask for heat.
But the food was wonderful.

We were at the restaurant for Sunday brunch. We had very enjoyable dishes. The service was excellent and they had a special on wine which made the meal quite reasonable. All four of us would return on any Sunday.
