Bienvenue!

You can now experience the best in French bistro cuisine a mere stone's throw from our sister restaurants Sage Bistro in Bellmore and Persil Restaurant in Oceanside, where our experienced chefs conspire to whet your appetite.

With our wide selection of wines and spirits, and offering brunch, lunch and dinner menus, Aperitif Bistro & Wine Bar is a principal player in the Rockville Centre's emerging culinary identity and we are ready to welcome you.

Whether you sample our taste-teasing mid-day fare or enjoy a cocktail with early afternoon appetizers, or a good Côtes du Rhône with a traditional bistro dinner, whether you patronize our scrumptious weekend brunch, engage us to cater a special event, or bring your office for a breakfast or luncheon meeting, you will find something to love.

Everything was great, as usual, but we were a little annoyed we did not receive our Open Table Points

Although this restaurant has been a local favorite for over a decade it's the first time we tried it. The service is impeccable. We each had a fish dish (scallops/bronzino) and cooked as ordered. Highly recommended.

Lovely date night in the outdoor area. Couldn’t ask for better service. Staff were masked and very accommodating of my gluten allergy. Food was phenomenal. Highly recommended.

Everything was perfect. We especially enjoyed the fresh oysters, clams, filet of sole and branzino specials. They didn’t rush us out so we liked that too. Desserts were awesome as well.

Delicious appetizers, cocktail and food. I had the Beef Wellington. It was perfectly cooked and a delight to eat. My daughter is a vegetarian and the staff was able to accommodate her by changing a dish so she could enjoy dinner too. The restaurant is on my saved list, and will certainly be returning.

Service was great and menu had lots of options. We ate delicious seafood! I could see going back for just appetizers and drinks because there were too many things we wanted to try!

The food at this restaurant is excellent! Great for a date night, or celebration. Lighting is very dim, waiters were very attentive, and pleasant. I would definitely dine here again

It was a very quiet weeknight, so the service could have been more attentive. We did enjoy dinner very much - it is one of our go-to restaurants in a town flooded with choices.

When we arrived, the hostess and I assume the manager were running around like chickens without heads. We were never greeted and two couples walked in after us and they greeted them and checked them in before us.
When we finally got a table, we waited almost 7 minutes before the waiter came by. His mask was not covering his nose, his attire was sloppy and left a lot to be desired.
We ordered a bottle of wine, when he bought it over, he opened it, poured a little in to my glass and my husbands and didn't ask us to taste it and just walked away.
The food was okay, nothing to rave about. We definitely, will not return to this establishment!

My husband and I went to Aperitif RVC for dinner and had an amazing experience! It was a nice night so we were able to sit outside and enjoy the night. The food and drinks was absolutely delicious, Jackie was our waitress and she was very attentive and accommodating. Highly recommend! 😃

Excellent good especially the pistachio crusted halibut and the beet salad. Delicious expresso martini. A bit dissatisfied that they wouldn’t honor happy hour pricing at tables.

The Mussels were excellent and so were the Zucchini Pancakes. The Cheese board was tasty but scarce. The service was very good, the Hostess and Busboy were extremely attentive and work very well, they assisted the waiter tremendously and were very pleasant.

Thank you.

Aperitif is one of our “go to” restaurants. The food is always good and the staff is very friendly, welcoming and the service is very good. Jackie and Johnnie always make us feel so welcome. The grilled branzino with baby arugula and cherry tomatoes is one of my favorite dishes. Always a nice dining experience at Aperitif.

We have dined here 3 times. Food and service have always been good. Truffle Mac & Cheese are worth the carbs, and of course, when at a French Restaurant the delicious Escargot are a requirement. : )
