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.

I love eating in the bar at La Belle Vie because the ambience is cozy yet upbeat. Last night we specifically wanted lamb burgers for dinner so we headed to La Belle Vie. The bar menu is creative, delicious and well priced. The martinis are fabulous. The lamb burgers never disappoint.

While it does go down in our history as THE most expensive meal we have ever had.....it was truly the best as well! We had the chef's tasting menu and each of us were guided through a wine flight. I simply have never tasted food or seen it presented like this before. A brisket that was indescribable in taste and... More

This is a must dine for the Twin Cities. Get the tasting menu, you won't be sorry. The food is imaginative and delicious. The service is knowledgeable and friendly. Come early and get a cocktail, they are top notch.
