rustic warm interior not one of those overdone interiors that tries to steal the show that you get so wowed over that you overlook the food and the service BECAUSE Bella Vista is all about FOOD and SERVICE - cozy room can't go there without trying the abalone.

The food superb, service impeccable, the view spectacular.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTreat to step back in timeTreat to step back in time to a classic restaurant - tuxedo servers, sauces/salads created as you watch, distinct courses especially souffle'. Had issue with excessive 'smoke' after prep of one type of sauce which appears to happen often since everyone had jacket/sweaters to wear when outside door had to be left ajar3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful time atWe had a wonderful time at Bella Vista. After having been in the area for 20 years and having heard about Bella Vista forever, we finally came here for a birthday celebration on a Friday night. It exceeded our expectations. The calamari steak was outstanding! The souffle for dessert was incredible as well. I'm was extremely impressed by the ambiance, food and service. Oh yeah...did I mention the view...wow.
We will definitely come back and won't wait for a special occasion.
Thank you Bella Vista!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBellissimo Bella Vista!Had a wonderful evening! The service was attentive and friendly. Thank you Fernando and Tanya! The view is to die for. And the food is superb. It's not Michelin star fancy but it's inventive, cooked well and tastefully presented. I love the bacon and spinach salad - warm and just slightly sweet. I had the filet - yummy! The dessert souffles are pillows of wonderfulness. And the bar can mix a good drink. Can't think of anything I'd change except slightly bigger tables but it was nice to be close to my special guy. Highly recommend!2/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply the best food and serviceSimply the best food and service of any restaurant that I know of. The view is great. It is far away (long ride up a hill) and expensive or we would go there more. We save it for special occasions. Again Simply the BEST food BEST service and great view.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
