    The ambiance was spectacular. When you first walk in the door it’s a magical experience. We were a group of 5, and were escorted to a private room. It was very quiet and peaceful. The food was delicious, we ordered croissants were fabulous! You must get them, just delicious! This was a wonderful dining experience!

    Good brunch as always. They now have the option to upgrade the petite grilled cheese to a large with the tomato bisque. The large is pretty big though! It's two pieces of thick brioche bread, but it was still good.

    We had a wonderful experience at Belle Helene! I definitely could not recommend it more and if you go, ask for Julian as your server—he was phenomenal. Super attentive and personable and went above and beyond to ensure we had the best service and experience! The food was incredible (we went for brunch) and the place itself is gorgeous.

    Table booth seats are very uncomfortable, at least the one we were seated in. Whenever anyone else on an adjoining bench moves, the entire seat vibrates. My wife could not stand it, so I switched seats with her, and it was definitely a detractor. Our waitress was very pleasant but service was very slow.

    It was a wonderful ambiance! We kept having to ask for silverware and the table next to us was forgotten about for 45 min. The food was hit or miss. We had fun- it was a special dinner and we wanted to try somewhere new. We don't plan on going back because both the service and food fell short of our usual more sustainably prices restaurants. I do plan on stopping in for a mocktail at the bar though because they were the best I ever had!

    Imagine Disney wanted to open a French restaurant on a cruise ship. Now imagine they wanted to understaff the restaurant and overbook the seating. Basically, frozen meal quality French food in a swank environment.

    La Belle Helene is always a go-to for a nice night out. Last night we were seated 20 mins after our reservation. Despite alerting our server to our show tix at 8pm, our food was still served late. Our server was friendly; however, we had to rush through our entree and had to ask that dessert be served while we were eating our entree. Although the food was delicious the overall experience was rushed and disappointing for what I expect from La Belle Helene. Timing needs improvement.

    Went to the restaurant for Valentine's Day. My wife really wanted to so I surprised her. Prix Fix was understandable but the food was underwhelming. For a 7:45 pm reservation, they were already out of scallops. So now my options were down to 3 items one of which had a $15 premium. Fodd was good but not great and at $100 a head, I was expecting more. Note to self, stay home and cook a great meal next year.
