I was having a bad week and decided the same day to try La Belle Vie. I was able to reserve a table for 5pm on a Friday. Valet parking is available and recommended as it is very hard to find on street parking. This is a special occasion restaurant but also great for a cheer yourself up day. Service... More

Excellent in every respect. The Walker Art Center is open late Thursday nights and this lovely venue is literally across the road from the museum. We took our kids and discovered that the bar lounge area was ideal. Not as formal as the main dining room and yet an excellent menu. They also have a smaller bar menu with high... More

I went with my partner and three other people to celebrate a birthday. What a fantastic and beautiful restaurant. The meal was perfect, our waiter was great and the bill was what we expected. We all loved our food and that doesn't happen that often between the five of us. We plan on going back to try out their tasting... More

Another great meal at La Belle Vie for birthday #67. Comfortable and relaxing with a nice wine list and exotic food. I had the Soft shell crab and olive oil poached halibut. I'm not a fish fancier, but really good. Soft shell crab always good, but this crispy and nice. Ann had the king crab and beef tenderloin, always excellent.... More

This was a great restaurant and the service was amazing! Our waiter was Reed and he was extremely attentive and very knowledgable about the food and wine. We had the tasting menu and the pairings were spot on. The food and wine were both fabulous! Highly recommend!

Easily the most romantic restaurant in Minneapolis. La Belle Vie is a small and intimate space with impeccable service, beautiful and delicious food that makes for a wonderful dining experience. My husband and I enjoyed dinner on a Saturday evening: pre dinner drinks, the basic tasting menu with wine pairing (with a a la carte cheese plate added before dessert).... More

After being seated, we were left alone for too long. After that, however, we were never ignored. We had the Grand Tasting Menu. The first couple of courses were average to good with the exception being the Campari marshmallow. It was terrible. But that was one marshmallow in a vast sea of courses. And as we progressed, the courses got... More

We decided to visit this restaurant for our anniversary and I have to say it was one of the better decisions I have made. The service was fantastic, as was the food. We happened to luck out and get Patrick for our server, and I had seen why other Trip Advisor writers had praised him. He was personable, informative, and... More

We went there for our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful dining experience. The food is excellent and the service was perfect. Having dined at many nice restaurants in Europe, this is very consistent with such restaurants.
