Enjoyed the food and excellent wine however the place is very small and on the shabby side. Limited parking.

I had a few friends here for my birthday dinner and Belle Vie was the perfect place for it. Intimate, delicious, and full of wine. It was a Saturday night so it was extremely busy and the staff were lovely but a little quick. I had a girls night and I felt like I annoyed our server because we were a little slow and indecisive. Regardless, it was a beautiful night and I couldn't have enjoyed it more. I even had to call and reschedule the day of and they were so easy going and wonderful about it. I highly recommend this red I had, Cotes-Du-Rhone.

I love elegant dining in a homey yet elevated setting (with no dress code!) The marble bar, the wood shelves packed with wine bottles and books, the copper pots hanging in the kitchen I am so in love with the feel of this place! Turn around to face framed photos, artwork and cozy booths. French music plays at the perfect volume. I ordered the Soup of the Day (cauliflower with cilantro, black oil and smoked salmon) and a Off The Menu Club item beef cheek cooked burgundy style (that's what brought me in. Hadn't heard of it before this week). Cauliflower soup was yummy on its own even yummier with the toppings/garnish mixed in. Perfect for fall. The beef cheek was perfectly cooked and soooo savory! One of the best things I've tried all year! Happy hour is from 4pm-7pm (12pm-7pm on Saturdays). The guy behind the bar (I found out later he's the owner) is so nice and sweet. The kitchen opened at 6pm and the restaurant filled up and I still received great service! This is a place where I feel comfortable sitting down for a couple hours. No one is rushing you out the door. This place was a breath of fresh air. Most delightful sit down experience in weeks.

Authentic French cooking in a very old Parisian ambiance. Well-prepared, large portions, healthy ingredients. Friendly owner.

This place is perfection, as though you have somehow stepped in a small cafe nestled in a French burrow. The owner’s service is a delight, and the food was delicious. We will be back.

Loved this small, pretty little restaurant. I truly felt like I was in a European cafe. The food was wonderful and the service was really good too. Highly recommend
