This was my first dining experience at this posh, uptown Charlotte restaurant. The decor is catchy and sexy while the restaurant was full of patrons there was little noise to interrupt the discussion. We sat at the bar and the service was 1st class, the...More

Dined here over the weekend, and upon arrival we were initially impressed. Valet was easily located just in front of the restaurant and we immediately entered through the impressive revolving doors. The interior is very well decorated and had the feeling of sophistication and class...More

La Belle Helene posts their menus online. The four of us had the cheese plate, the rotisserie chicken, brisket, craft cocktails, and dessert.
