This is not only a restaurant to remember the food, but the interior is exquisite. A trip to the Middle East. We've been here at least 6 or more times. As a couple, with family and friends. What a treat!!! The wait staff is friendly, attentive and will help w
Any questions. We've had the grilled platter w lamb kabobs, cous cous with plenty of small pockets of pita bread so you can mix things together. Friends had
A mixture of vegetables and chicken kabob
W tangine. The interior is ornately decorated and makes you feel like you're in a large market. Tables are covered
W tablecloths. Linda our waitress was extremely helpful. She has navigated the menu w us many times. On the hot platter
There are asparagus and other veggies, but since I don't eat spicy food I easily moved the dark green pepper. The menu is a lively experiment and the decor
With leaves vines and moss is beautiful. Add to this an exotic belly dancer and you are in Lebanon w no air flight. The manager
And owner are close by making things run smoothly. We slipped in the first time approx. 6:30 pm. If you plan on later you should call for reservations. La Vie does fill up. There are some tables outside.
This restaurant is located on powerline south. Just south of Atlantic and the meme changed to pompano beach guest. Same street as powerline! It's right in front of the Palm Aire buildings which is called the palm aire market place. It is on the south end of the mall in one of the largest sections. Plenty of parking. It is also across the street from the pompano race track! So much to
Do and enjoy. Bring your friends!
There is a large lunch crowd, with many people at the bar in the back. Enjoy your meal and enjoy the belly dancer festivities. I love this restaurant, food, decor and wait staff. Everyone wants you to have a tasty joyous experience.
Will be visiting soon. EXCELLENT!

Amazing meal,
Run-- don't walk here.

Fantastic food and service.

The atmosphere is elegant right out of the middle east.

My wife and I split 2 entrees--the shrimp kabob was was excellent-- but the star of the evening was the grouper tangine.
The tangine was served hot in a metal skillet covered with a metal top.
Tangine is what to order-- whether it is chicken, seafood or grouper.

The tangine consisted of a large portion of grouper cooked in a tomato garlic sauce with bell peppers and tomatos served over a bed of baked potatoes, topped with Moroccan olives and parsley.

The service was exceptional as the servers all worked clockwork as a team.

My reviews are honest and tough unlike many others to which an excellent grade is given to every restaurant they ever ate at.

La Vie is absolutely the best

I have had dinner at La Vie several times with friends. Each time was better than the last. The restaurant is situated in a shopping center, parking is not a problem. The food is excellent. I have had the lamb tangine which was prepared perfectly. As I am partial to their tanginess, I plan to have the chicken tangine this evening. The staff is pleasant, efficient and very accommodating. The interior decor truly puts you in the middle east. Decorated in a Moroccan tent atmosphere, it sets the senses for the delicious mezes and main courses perfectly. A delightful experience all around.

I went with my heart set on a gourmet experience. I had hoped for well prepared medium rare European style lamb. I ended with lamb tagine, which is ok if you like well roasted spiced meat. The service was awesome, the drinks nicely done. The appetizers were ok. The chicken and "lamb" were both well done. It reminded me of my family's many overlooked entrees. It is good for comfort food, if that is your experience. I prefer more modern meat preparations.
