Brunch was perfect. Ambiance—literally everything. Our server, kacey, was great and the peach Bellini was fire. I had the Florentine Benedict and it was clutch af. The assorted bread basket and my pommes frites were lit and I’m officially woke because of them. Overall, the whole experience had me literally shooketh. Will definitely be back asap rocky. Complete yas.
Beautiful restaurant, amazing service, good food, clean bathrooms and valet service. What’s not to love?
Honestly, the best charcuterie I have had in Charlotte thus far. Food was good but not life changing; still pretty solid. Profiteroles though, were amazing!
Food is great! We tried the pork chop and the cod, which was perfectly cooked and the sides were a perfect fit and for desert the pear dish, which was good but will try something else if I ever go back. But the service has a lot to improve and tables are too close to each other and you can barely have a conversation without hearing the the conversation on the next table.
I was looking forward to a having a French restaurant close to work. You walk in and feel like you are transported to an elegant restaurant in France. The menu however was a let down. Very little French dishes to be found. Soups a l’ognion, croque monsieur,escargot... the usual suspects. The decor is great, I wished they had a menu to match it
Had a wonderful experience at La Belle! Our server Bruce was awesome and the food was delicious!
Our bartender, Ben, was awesome!! He made us yummy mojitos. He made it happen. Very professional and great service. This place was beautiful and the service we received was top notch. Food was delicious. We had the rib eye, lobster and scallops. The mousse was wonderful. We will definitely return!! Thank you for making our 19th wedding anniversary very memorable and special.
My 2nd visit to La Belle Helene and I've only lived in Charlotte for 3 weeks! The ambiance is amazing and both times I had the same great server. Love the vibe, bread, and appetizers and I always find something to eat there even though as a vegetarian, they don't offer many choices.
Going back for Brunch with my family over Thanksgiving weekend.
Our server spilled the au jus sauce down the back of my husband's shirt. We will take it to be laundered, but if the stain does not come out we will ask for a replacement.
Dinner flow was fine and moved smoothly. We never felt rushed and spent over two hours at dinner, which we enjoyed. The only complaint would be the timing of the beverages. We had a cocktail first and then ordered wine. We didn’t get the bottle in a timely manner and our apps had already arrived long before our wine.
Our group of 5 went to La Belle Helene for a business dinner. After getting a drink at the bar, we sat at one of the 8-person tables set off to the side of the restaurant. This was the perfect setting to have our own private conversations, but we did not feel secluded from the restaurant by any means. The food and service was fantastic, especially the tuna tartare and duck breast. I look forward to coming back for other personal occasions in the future.
LBH continues to impress. Consistently high quality food and service
Reminiscing of traditional Parisian brassieres- LBH transports you to your favorite arrondissement with authentic cuisine and surroundings. Baked goods are perfect and all our party ‘s entrees were very well prepared. How the chef gets the quiche and brioche French toast so delicate is such a wonderful thing. Croque monsieur - delicious! Will definitely visit again to try the dinner menu.
Parisienne atmosphere, very authentic. Fabulous croissants. Waited 20 minutes for table with reservation. Service needs improvement. Waited too long for drinks and food.
This was recommended by a friend of a friend as fav new restaurant. There for brunch before Panthers game. Bloody Mary’s & crossiants delicious. Avocado toast was so so. Cold when brought to table & they brought a steak knife to cut toast & still could barely cut it. Busy Sunday before game but service was slow. Would go back for drinks but would try different food
Went for brunch before the Panthers game and had an amazing experience. The service from Beth was fantastic and the food is delicious. Will definitely be back!
Lindsay, our server on the evening of Saturday Nov. 3rd, was amazing. She did not rush us and gave us a thorough walk through of the menu. Cannot compliment her enough!
Really good food and service. A little loud though. Made conversation a little difficult but not terrible. Otherwise we'll worth it. Food and ambience was beautiful.
Food and wine choices were very good. Atmosphere was chic and service was attentive without being overbearing. Will definitely return and recommend to friends!
Beautiful restaurant. Perfect for when you want an experience with your food. Really appreciated our table immediately being available to sit (we did have a red) Service was excellent. Bathroom situation is awkward, ladies you’ll see what I mean. You’ll have to touch up your lipstick next to a dude and no where to place your purse. But not a huge deal. The Royal Helene spritz, was a disappointment. Very syrup heavy. The pork belly special was cooked perfectly but only came with a small portion butternut squash purée and the dish didn’t look appetizing. Like an entire platter of meat-it really needed some kind of greenery to balance. Complementary pastry at the end is such a nice touch. The clientele is a little varied. Lots of the uppity white people that Charlotte is known for. I’m a foodie but I’m not wearing a prom dress to check your food out. Would definitely go back to check out brunch.
Great atmosphere, service and French food. A great addition to Uptown, Charlotte.
I chose to surprise my wife for our wedding anniversary with dinner here. Every bit of the experience made us feel welcome, special, and as if we were the only guests in the entire restaurant. The food was tremendously good and our server knew the menu backwards and forwards when we had questions. We will certainly return and recommend this new Jewel of a restaurant in the Queen City's crown.
This was our fourth time and it was great as usual. My only complaint was that my Salmon entree was smaller than last time but was prepared perfect!
We went with our parents and they were put off immediately by the noise level. Without a thought the hostess sat us in a quiet private room and the crisis was quickly averted!
Roast chicken over cooked/dry. Salmon unremarkable & over cooked. Sauce helped. As I cook a lot myself, I expect more. Much too loud. Difficult to hear across the table.
One of my favorites in Charlotte especially: escargot, onion soup, tuna tartare, croque monsieur, etc!
My wife and had our date night here. We will definitely be going back. Food was excellent and service was impeccable. Thank you
We had reservations for lunch and were one of the first guest seated. To our dismay, a couple was seated right next to us when there was an entire restaurant open. The onion soup was good, though a little sweet, and the salmon tasty. The chocolate mousse was more of a chocolate lava cake than mousse but still delicious. The staff was pleasant and attentive.
My Steak was under done and so was my wife’s Duck. I have eaten and many wonderful restaurants with a top end menu but I still feel this place was over priced. The pastry chef was amazing though.
Great food and atmosphere but a bit pricey. We will go back but probably not on a regular basis.
Beautiful new restaurant in Uptown Charlotte transported us to Paris! Everyone greeted us with anniversary wishes and the service provided by Dustin was top notch. The onion soup was delicious and our beef cooked to perfection! We’ll be back!
We love a restaurant with great food where the waitstaff serves the food and then leaves you alone instead of coming back 100 times to interrupt your dining experience. Though when our waiter did come by he was friendly and courteous. This is a new favorite restaurant in Uptown.
We were celebrating belated birthdays, and La Belle Helene always looked good when we walked by including their menu.
The interior is very nicely done, and the overall ambiance is good. We were there on a Tuesday night, and they were quite busy.
We are very familiar with Italian cuisine, so we depend upon our server to guide us with French cuisine. Our server was spot on in her timing and suggestions including a French wine to pair with our meal when given what we would pick in an Italian wine.
We started with the Charcuterie and Fromages board followed by the Coq au Vin. For dessert we split the Seasonal Berry Meringue. The food was delicious, and service was excellent. We will definitely return.
Great apps, service and decor. Entrees were good not great.
The space is beautiful, and we had very good service. The food varied in quality. We went on Tuesday when they serve coq au vin. The flavor was excellent, but the chicken was grizzly and bony. So it was disappointing. My wife's scallops were very good.
I also thought the red wine glasses were small, and deducted from enjoying the wine.
We'll probably give them another chance. (We sent a review to the General Manager who answered appropriately).
Open about 3 months
Great atmosphere. Very tasty food. Service was excellent . Bar area very conducive to after work get togethers. Can't wait for outside tables. Like most new restaurants noise level can be a problem. Glad I tried, going back shortly
Easily one of the best meals I’ve had in my 10+ years in Charlotte.
Despite great recommendations our group found the cocktails to be undrinkable, the food uninspired, and the noice level pretty high.
Our waiter was superb, and we were fitted immediately upon arrival.
This is my second lunch visit . The food is good overall. The tuna in the salade niçoise was supposed to be "confit"... but was nothing special, however the fresh anchovies were a nice touch. The quiche was barely warm. The salad and the lemon vinaigrette was very good. The service is excellent and so are the decor and the ambiance.
The Sunday Brunch was very good. The restaurant was fairly empty since a Panthers game had just started. Overall the food was excellent although the salad dressing was way too salty. The Croque Monsieur was very good & the bartender was not holding back on the Moscow Mules which were strong enough so one was plenty. Server was cordial without being obtrusive. It was a family birthday with out of town guests, but although it was noted on the reservation no one apparently told the server. We will definitely be back and we have already told our friends to try it!
We had brunch and it was a good experience overall. The atmosphere and service are exceptional. The menu is very good for brunch and everything was prepared and presented very well.
