The food was very good, service great, but very hot, not much air conditioning if at all.
We would not return until the weather changes.
Be aware, steep steps to the rest rooms.

Not even remotely related to true French cuisine.

Pleasant to sit outside in the closed street. Can’t comment on interior ambiance.

My husband and I ate at La Belle Epoque during Dining Under the Stars and had a nice small table in the street. Our waitress Sara was amazing and did a wonderful job making sure we had a wonderful meal. Most of the food was delicious. I had the filet mignon, and even though it had a good taste, it was very dry. All and all we had a great night and will definitely return for another visit.

Absolutely loved their take on escargots - instead of garlic/butter/herbs, it was french onion soup. Delicious! The quiche was divine and the servers were so friendly.

Our evening was just lovely. The courses came out in the order we asked. Everything was delicious! By 7:30, when we left, it was very noisy but that was the sound of a restaurant full of people enjoying their meals!

The service was wonderful. The two women working were doing an excellent job. Our food however was disappointing. My mahi-mahi was very dry and cold. My sons filet and mashed potatoes were also cold. We have eaten here several times and this was the first time we ran into this problem

This place is a hidden gem! I had never heard of it, but found it on Open Table while searching for reservations for a particular time. My wife and I were not disappointed. The food was amazing! We both shared a cheese board and then both got the filet. The filet was comparable to Brandywine Prime but for a much more reasonable price. The cocktails were made and then brought to and poured at our table, which I thought was classy. The desert (crepes) was amazing!! Our server (can’t recall his name) was attentive to our needs and was very engaging. He made us really feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant. The building itself is nice and quaint and pretty quiet which was nice for a change from our usual! (kids climbing all over us) Overall I’d definitely recommend this place. We will be going back for sure!

usually have had good experience here but disappointed this time. the portion of sea bass was small and thin. quality of the main course wasn't commensurate with the price. beet salad was excellent though. Maybe the pandemic has had an effect. Hoping quality will improve over time.,
