“Great food and Awesome view”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

We recently had dinner at this restaurant and enjoyed every minute of it. Food was excellent, waterfront view was wonderful and we got very nice service.

While the menu is very good and creative, the restaurant would do well to add a few vegetarian and vegan options.

“Excellent Food, Wonderful View”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Bel Lago's location and atmosphere can't be beat. The new menu is different from the old menu, but it has changed for the better. The food is fantastic and sourced seasonally. The price does reflect the new changes, but I am happy to see this restaurant go in a new and better direction. I've always had a great experience while dining here.

“WAY Overpriced”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Went here with another couple and we were told by the waiter that there was a new menu; and then he took the next ten minutes (not exaggerating) explaining the entire menu and the origins. And the menu isn't all that big.

A few of us had the bass, not sea bass, but just regular bass, and it was okay but not nearly worth what they charged. Salads were good but again, not worth it. Dessert menu had nothing that even tempted any of us.

Service was good but slow.

The tough part is that we spent $200 and there were only two glasses of house wine, no appetizers, only 3 salads between 4 of us and the two entrees. So many more restaurants with better food, better portions and a better value out there that Bel Lago cannot compete at this level.
