Had a great time. Food was great and staff was very accommodating. We were late due to trying to find parking and they still sat us. We dined outdoors. There was a Lady Gaga concert at Nats stadium and line was wrapped around the restaurant but it still didn’t interrupt our experience at all. We both got the Steak Frites plate and it was delicious. Also got blackberry margarita and a chocolate cake slice for my bday. Loved everything. Will be back!

Our server Mitch was phenomenal. Customer service is so vital in today’s time and Mitch went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our first experience at La Vie. He knew the menu and was very patient, plus kind. The world needs more of Mitch. He also took the time to have great conversation while being mindful of his other tables! We will absolutely be back!

It’s always a great spot for dinner! My friend was in town and I wanted to take her to one of my favorite places. She loved it! The meatball appetizer is my favorite. Yummy! The pizza is amazing and the donuts for dessert is amazing too.

Excellent little California-focused wine bar with great food in the heart of Old Town. If they recommend it, try it. The salmon crostini was lovely. Sit at the bar and make new friends.

Over and above our expectations. It was our first visit to the restaurant for a special occasion for dinner. The food was delicious and the presentation artful. The entree portions were generous. Those who took our orders and greeted us were attentive -- service was lovely. The decor of the restaurant very appealing -- we felt like we traveled to Spain. Highly recommend. We look forward to returning for lunch. And maybe again for a dinner of tapas. We had hoped to sit outside, but the rainy weather determined our seating.
