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

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
