About

From the team behind Spoon and Stable comes Bellecour, a French bistro and bakery located in the heart of downtown Wayzata. Named after the bustling town center of Place Bellecour in Lyon, France, the restaurant borrows classic cuisine and charming design from the storied gastronomical capital of the Western world. Chef Gavin Kaysen’s lifelong love of cooking is deeply tied to the food and people of Lyon. While most culinarians are privileged to call two of the town’s most famed descendants, Daniel Boulud and Paul Bocuse, professional inspirations, Gavin also knows them as dear friends and mentors. Their stories are as much a part of Bellecour as Gavin’s own. Here, guests can expect to find comfort in simplicity, a profound respect for individual ingredients, gracious hospitality, and a rich nod to history in all that we do.

This was an enjoyable meal in a place with a great atmosphere. However , we were a bit disappointed by the fact that we were seated at 813 for a 730 reservation and did not receive our food until 930. We had made the reservation over one month in advance so this level of wait was very disappointing.

Our waiter provided excellent service the food was excellent. And to his credit he did offer us complimentary dessert to apologize for the wait time on the food. I believe he was unaware on the wait time we had for the table.

Thank you for soliciting feedback I hope this helps improve future experiences for others.

Sincerely,
Bryan Nelson

Special romantic dinner to celebrate the passing of dry January. Food was exceptional, as usual. Service great. Love their French wines. This is such a special, welcoming place to eat and drink. Some of our favorite foods: endive salad, mussels, duck. Every meal we have here is memorable.

My first time at Bellecour and it met all of my expectations. The atmosphere is lovely and the noise level was low.
Our food was exceptional. We had a pate starter and shared the pear salad. Both were very good. For an entrée we had bouillabaisse and the atlantic cod. Both exceptional.
This restaurant is pricier than most but the experience was worth it. Our waiter said that they have a happy hour with bar food or you could order of the menu.
Our waiter Nico enhanced the experience. He was so personable, gave us tips and engaged with us without being obtrusive.

The food was excellent, but it was very loud, and we had no privacy. We had to shout at each other at our anniversary dinner. There were no non-alcoholic beverages on the menu which always starts me off with a bad attitude. So if we aren't drinking wine or booze, we should just drink water? Time for restaurants to catch up with the times and offer some interesting N/A beverages.

Truly one of the best dining experiences in the Twin Cities. The staff provide the most polished service of anywhere in town. They are always welcoming and very attentive without being assertive or overly eager. It is our favorite spot in town.

Another terrific evening at this wonderful restaurant. Great drinks that were interesting, beautifully served and fun. The original salad was spectacular and a delight, even to one who rarely gets a salad. The mains were generous, uniquely suited to the content, and perfectly presented. I had the boulibase which had a fine mix of seafood content in a soup just right for dipping the fresh bread served. The veal special was delightful, as was the cod.

I’m sorry to say that several of our entrees (the cod and the duck) were quite salty, to the point of being almost inedible. We have experienced this before at this restaurant, and had hoped they had corrected this issue; sadly not. The waitstaff and service was off on the night we visited as well. This should be a gem, given the chef’s reputation; I’m afraid this establishment needs more of his attention or risks losing clientele.

Had a great brunch. Service was great and their pastry basket is phenomenal. There was even a delicious Gluten free muffin.
Mimosas were ok....not the greatest for this high profile type of French restaurant.

My husband and I went to Bellecour to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. The service was outstanding and the food was executed perfectly. They even brought us a complimentary house-made matcha macaroon ice cream sandwich for dessert that made us reminiscent of our trip to France. Overall a wonderful dining experience. We hope to be back very soon.

Just well executed beginning to end. This restaurant doesn’t strive to create something out of the box or new, but rather focus intensely on doing everything that it does exceptionally well. I would put Bellecour against any French bistro in the country.
