A Little Spendy, But Well Worth It

My husband and I went to La Belle Vie for our 10th Anniversary Dinner. We are both pretty frugal, so normally we wouldn't spend so much on dinner for just the two of us, but since it was such a special occasion, we decided to go for it, and we were not disappointed! We decided to get the five... read more

Decided to try this restaurant after reading the reviews and its accolades. Let me start with a few positives. The ambiance, the decor and the service were good. You certainly felt as if you've stepped into another little world - one that was traditional and elegant. Beautiful setting. The cocktails that we tried were outstanding. We were greeted with an...

Super service. Love the pairing menu, which offer great wines. It's in a great location near the sculpture garden.

I suggest one of the set menu with wine pairing. The staff is very knowledgeable and great for recommendations. It is an experience, ideal for special occasions.

We did the chef's menu and shared one wine pairing along with the meal because we are not big drinkers but wanted the experience. The food was beyond good. Every single course made me say it was the best thing I had ever eaten. The atmosphere is beautiful and the service is exceptional.

First the good: This is a beautiful restaurant located in a crowded neighborhood. Valet parking is the only reasonable option. The restaurant exudes old money charm: high ceilings, tasteful decorations, good wait staff. Now the bad and the ugly: HOWEVER, the food is not good. This a tasting menu restaurant. My wife had five courses. I had seven. The dishes... More

There were four of us and of the three tasting menus on offer we chose the midpiriced one ($90 a person I think )and we all got the wine flight as well. This review is kind of long but I think when people are contemplating paying these prices they... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. The restaurant is in a beautiful Art Deco era building near downtown. The dining rooms are elegant, but relaxed, high ceilings with different crown moldings in the different rooms, painted a warm yellow/gold hue. The tables are far apart. There is a feeling of privacy and you can easily hear your dinner companion.... More

La Belle Vie ranks up there with the best restaurants in the world...with prices to match. We had an extraordinary meal...the 5 course tasting meal with wine pairings. The service staff makes this a memorable occasion. For us it was a graduation celebration...who doesn't celebrate kids becoming financially independent!! Every course and every glass of wine was superbly matched and... More
