“Very European.....delicieux!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

Belle Vie is a place you will want to re-visit again and again. The waitstaff are there for the long haul and Xavier and Stephanie are a delight! My husband enjoys the seasonal Belgian beers and the burger!
Mussels are great and daily specials worth trying. A true taste of Europe stateside.

“Great place for lunch”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Stopped in for lunch today and it was super. The food was scrumptious though one might use european words to describe more fully. Service was excellent in that we were treated like we were the only ones there. We are looking forward to trying their dinner choices in the future.

“Not cheap but, it's worth it”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We had Sunday brunch here - my husband had been before, it was my first visit. Very impressed. Very attractive decor, attentive service, and the best food. My husband's omelet was cooked perfectly and I had a smoked salmon sandwich (served on a baguette with bacon, hard boiled egg, tomato and lettuce) with a side of vegetable medley (carrots and peppers and onions). I always regard this type of side as a true test of a chef's ability, and it was done just right - not overcooked, not underdone.
