It's a cool restaurant being in an old building from 1928. Food is not your typical fare. Very cool ingredients. Uses a fusion method. Did a 8 course faire but potions are very small. Not a good cit if you volume of food.

I was so heartbroken by the service during our special evening out that I'm not sure how to write a useful review. Just know, dear traveler, that while I suspect that most people have a really special time at this restaurant, there are those of us who do not. Overall, when paying a $400+ bill, I expect consistently excellent service,... More

I've wanted to go to La Belle Vie for years now, but just haven't gotten there. We went to celebrate our anniversary just recently and we will be going again as soon as our budget allows! It is seriously in contention for the best restaurant in the Twin Cities. The atmosphere was wonderful- the tables are nice and big and... More

There aren't many places where you can sit in the lounge/bar and have a world class meal, served impeccably by knowledgeable staff while you're enveloped in a warm and exquisitely furnished room. That is La Belle Vie in a nutshell. From the honey and lavender poussin legs to the saddle of rabbit with beets and foie gras, the starters are... More

This is a seriously excellent restaurant. We live in LA, and La Belle Vie would be one of the best restaurants in LA, if it were here. We had the tasting menu. Every course was excellent, interesting, and well presented. Food was better than the Michelin 1* we ate at in Chicago on same trip.

A group of 4 of us went for my partner's birthday last week. This place is AMAZING! The staff, the professionalism, the food, the wine. Delicious! We all did the Chef's Tasting Menu - we highly recommend! The food was so amazing - we had a lovely time. The staff was super nice and sweet. They put a 'happy birthday'... More

We took our children there to help celebrate our 40th anniversary. We had the Grand Tasting menu with wine flight and everything was fabulous. The service was wonderful. It really is too much food and too much wine. Next time, I think I would get the 8 course meal instead of the 12. Plan on being there 2.5 hours.

Went back to La Belle Vie after visiting it in Stillwater many years ago. Found the restaurant to be very different from its roots in Stillwater. Our adult party of four found this to be a very a complex experience. First, parking is at a premium and difficult to find if you don't want to pay the $9 valet parking... More

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
