Lovely Lunch

Started with outstanding cocktails, enjoyed the quiche of the day, and shared a dessert crepe. Really fun! Not the place to go with someone who is gluten-free. They will be sad about all the good things they can't have.

I have to say after visiting with a friend for dinner I was shocked to hear the owner speak with profanity while sitting with others at his bar. And he is the owner of a few other restaurants and I refuse to patronize them. Not necessary even if it's common in a country he might be from.

We don't get down to Media too often but booked a lunch date at La Belle Epoque around a doctor visit in the area. Very favorably impressed by the downtown area in general (easy, affordable parking etc) and especially this cozy little bistro. Everything we had was freshly prepared and delicious! We shared a beet salad as our opener with... More

My husband and I wanted to try some place new for our 1 year wedding anniversary. I had the best crepe ever here! It was filled with prosciutto, potatoes and some type French cheese. My husband enjoyed his chicken entree, but said that mine was better! I had a sweet Riesling wine flight that was refreshing too. We want to... More

This quaint little corner cafe has quite a good selection of wines by the glass, nice outdoor seating options, which we were able to enjoy thanks to a warm December afternoon. The French atmosphere was a nice change of pace, and the food was very nicely prepared, and reasonably priced.

We live in Media, and like to dine out in town at least once a month. Belle Epoque is one of our favorite go-to places. It bills itself as a wine bar and I can attest to the quality of their cellar. On this trip, my daughter and I went for Restaurant Week, but ended up getting a lighter dinner... More

My wife and I were guests at this restaurant with some friends for dinner. We began with a glass of dry sparkling wine. For starters we had a beet salad and scallops with tomatoes. In general, the dishes were good. However, the beetroot was a little hard. We both had savoury pancakes for our main courses - my wife had... More

An easy spot to comfortably dine alone as the tables are small and seating areas tight. A broad menu and I enjoyed a crepe with Raclette cheese, potatoes and prosciutto, a fresh, lightly dressed spring greens salad and a roll. A cream sauce described on the menu didn't make it on the plate. Wait staff seemed either very attentive or... More
