I went with a few friends and my kids for early apps. The salty crepes were alright, they needed more flavorful cheese. Sugary were too sugary even just the batter alone.

This is a nice place in Media, Pa., however it can get noisy and my husband can be quite the grump when he can't hear conversations. For appetizer I got the snails which were good, not great. My husband loved his soup. For dinner she got the chicken, her husband the hanger steak and both enjoyed. At the suggestion of... More

Great location in Media, excellent staff. The food was amazing - highly recommend the escargot and the hare entree, and the homemade potato gnocchi - just delicious!

We were in Media on a Saturday night without reservations. We had been at La Belle Epoque several times before and noticed some empty tables through the window. So, lucky for us, the hostess found the only empty table for us. We had a wonderful dinner. Food is delicious and service is friendly. Love the crepes, of course. But everything... More

This has been a favorite of mine for Sunday brunch for some time, however, I was a little disappointed recently. I ordered the quiche which was good but didn't taste fresh (even though it was the quiche of the day) and it came with a green salad. The weather was nice so we sat outside, however, there were two bees... More

Been meaning to try this place for years, but recently just stopped in. I'm no French expert, but the place is cute and the food is good. I stopped in at lunch and ordered the Croque Madam and really enjoyed it. My friend ordered the French dip and said it was good. I'll definitely be back for the Croque Madam!

I was born and raised in France, so I'm always on the lookout for a great French restaurant or café locally. I had heard that the owner of La Belle Epoque is French, and the menu and atmosphere seemed reasonably authentic, so my friend and I tried it out for lunch. I was pretty disappointed in the quality of the... More

What a great experience going to La Belle Epoque on Bastille Day was. I went out of my comfort zone and ordered Vichyssoise. My family had to hold me from licking the bowl clean. I'd never had vichyssoise before and it was the best soup ever. For dinner I ordered the Bass Special which was done to perfection and it's... More

We were looking forward to trying this bistro and were disappointed. My husband's rack of lamb was overdone with a mediocre sauce. My trout was covered with potatoes and vegetables that overwhelmed the fish.

We went here for my wife's birthday celebration. We chose this place for two reasons. First because my wife wanted the French cuisine and also because it was a BYO. The atmosphere is great. The service was good. The food was excellent.
