Excellent food

This is another restaurant in a beautiful building, just outside of downtown. They offer three levels of tasting menus plus ala carte. The service was top notch and so was the food. I understand this is a new chef who has only been there about a month. Let's hope he stays and continues to provide... read more

Incredible ambiance, perfect food. The server was a gem and knew the food and wine intimately. Will definitely be back soon even though I am from out of state!

LBV has been in the news because several key members of its staff have moved on to other restaurants. We were a little nervous about this visit, but LBV continues to reign as the best fine dining establishment in the Twin Cities. Quiet elegance, superb service, and leading edge cuisine all come together here. Our group of four took the... More

Overly quiet ambience on a Thursday evening in a wonderful room and building. Excellent professional waitstaff not at all stuffy. Limited menu with many unappealing components felt very restricting ( just won't eat foie gras, blood sausage, or bunny rabbit), but best known for dining 'flights' of preplanned sequential courses, which we did not have. New menu starts in late... More

What a a great night - valet parked, smart dress required, converted hotel turned restaurant and condos. Bar was busy, trendy and beautiful. High ceilings with a 1920s flair. Waitstaff was knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. We ordered cocktails then had the Chefs Tasting Menu with wine pairings. Then we ordered coffees and split a full size dessert. I have to...

Dinner is a event at La Belle Vie. The Chief's tasting menu and wine flight will set you back but it is worth it. Many restaurants are trying to be novel and have exotic tastes and flavors but do not execute well. La Belle Vie puts out not only novel food that is presented beautifully but executed extremely well. The... More

The Lounge at Belle Vie is a perfect romantic getaway. The combination of spectacular food, incredible drinks, and a luxurious atmosphere make it a memorable experience. While expensive - the Lounge tasting menu can be a more affordable option than the full fledged dinner in the main restaurant.

The restaurant is trying too hard to seem high class and authentically French. However, in reality they are just plain rude. I took my friend here for her birthday. The waiter treated us with absolute disrespect by trying to correct our French,among other things, and my friend is literally visiting me From Paris, so obviously she's fluent in the language--...

We prefer to sit in the lounge area. You can get the same tasting menu only a bit smaller portions and the option of wine pairings. It's kinda pricey, you can eat everything and probably need another dessert when you get home, but it's such a unique menu that it's worth it once in a while!
