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!

We have dined at La Belle Vie many times over the past year. Whether you eat in the bar or in the restaurant, this is fine dining at its best! The craft cocktails are unique and delicious, the food is second to none. The staff is lovely and always do whatever is needed to accommodate your requests. It is not... More

The two best meals in my life have been at La Belle Vie. While I have not eaten at a lot of white table cloth high end restaurants I don’t know how they can get much better. I’m totally shocked at the reviews of bed service I’ve read about here. I’ve been here twice and service was absolutely perfect not... More

First time at La Belle Vie on a first date. WOW. Amazing, nothing short of perfection. Everything, ambiance, service, wine, cocktails, appetizers, entrees, desert!!! Definitely a place to go if you're wanting to treat all 5 senses. Best restaurant I've tried in the Minneapolis area. Very elegant. Quite expensive, but you can't put a price on experience. Highly recommend if... More

I became engaged at La Belle Vie. I celebrated anniversaries there. I hung out in the bar for the best cocktails I have ever had anywhere in the city. The meals change by the season. The food is consistently good. can't even give a single preference because every meal, every drink, every time, is always excellent.

High end food and service, french style cooking unmatched in the twin cities. The restauraunt moved several years ago to its new location in a 1920's era hotel. Typical of the style, if you are going to avoid going to a late night bar for additional food than either eat something before you go or order the Grand tasting menu,... More
