The food at this restaurant is amazing. We made reservations based on a recommendation from a local person who said it was great. We were not disappointed. We had a diverse crowd with a vegan, health nuts, and those who love a good meal. Everyone was beyond satisfied. The wine list is extensive and their Martini's won't disappoint. The atmosphere is great and service fantastic. Parking is easy with meters or lots close. If you are in Grand Rapids its a must visit.

We drove over an hour on our Anniversary to go to Bistro Bella Vita--it was closed for Memorial Day, despite the fact that its website clearly said, "Monday May 27--dinner 5 to 10 pm." Disappointing that they did not make it clear they were closed for the holiday!

My husband and I were in Grand Rapids for a quick overnight stay/conference. We selected Bistro Bella based on reviews but were reserving judgement - you know how that goes. We were seated promptly with consideration for our request for a less noisy location. Conrad was attentive, knowledgeable about the menu and wine. My husband enjoyed the tasting menu and I had the boeuf bourguignon. Very tasty. Dessert was overpour coffee and creme brulee. Very authentic french but far from pretentious. Highly recommend - wish we lived closer!

They keep current with a changing and evolving menu. Lot's of very high quality products from local growers and suppliers... The Bar is pretty friendly and the service is damned good
