    We came for brunch and had to wait over ten minutes for our table even though we had a reservation. The server was really bad and very slow. She did not check on us at all and never refilled drinks. Food was ok bur came out in stages.Probably the worst server I have ever had.

    We did not get seated until 20 minutes after our reservation and ended up seated at one of three tables on the other side of the bar (not with the rest of the restaurant) so kind of killed the ambiance for us. We also waited over 10 minutes at the bar for someone to acknowledge us while waiting for our table. Once we got seated, our server was great and food was good but definitely pricey.

    We had a nice dinner. We were a little disappointed that our entrees did not arrive at the same time. Mine and my boyfriend’s dinners arrived about 8-10 minutes after my parents. Our server walked past us a few times and didn’t say anything. Finally he came over and seemed surprised our food was not there yet. I am a server and my Boyfriend is a chef, so we can understand things happen but would have appreciated acknowledgment from someone sooner. I tagged my reservation as a special occasion but it was not acknowledged by anyone which was a bit disappointing. Otherwise my cocktail was delicious and our food was very good!

    Some of the best food I have ever had in Charlotte. Server was delightful and very knowledgeable about the foods. Service was good. I would have given it a perfect 5 out of 5 in terms of noise level had they not sat at table next to us in our cul-de-sac of a room towards the end of the meal. The noise from the other table completely overwhelmed any conversation attempts we made. Thankfully this came at the end of the meal otherwise it would have been a unpleasant evening

    Visited for restaurant week. Valet was a very nice man but needed some assistance. 1 person for a Sunday evening during restaurant week didn't seem fair. Table was not ready when we arrived for our reservation. assume that's why there was such a delay in between each course. Not too many options to choose from so we went with the chicken. It was so bland. Luckily the mashed potatoes were good. Spinach could've used some seasoning as well. Aus ju tasted more like soy sauce than what I'm used to so I couldn't even use that to doctor up the chicken. What I enjoyed most? The baguettes (that we were charged for and not told about but they were so good we didn't say anything) and the dessert La Rican. It looked and tasted like a Snickers bar. I would return but maybe for brunch only, I heard I'd have better luck then. 😕

    I have to say I was disappointed. We came to celebrate my Dad’s birthday. I called a day earlier to see the if we could have a specific dessert (Le Citrion) that wasn't available during brunch time. The person I called took my number and said they had to check with the pastry chef to see we could have that dessert and that she would call back after checking. I never received a callback. A callback even if I couldnt have dessert would have been appreciated. Then to make it worse our waitperson acted as though we were disturbing her by waiting on us. No smile or much interest in our table at all. The fact that we were there to celebrate my Dad’s birthday was ever acknowledge. I did have it listed in our reservation the purpose for coming was to celebrate my Dad birthday. Overall not a great experience. I have dined at La Belle Helen several times before and I’ve never had this poor of an experience as I had on Sunday. I hope this experience does not continue as I have truly enjoyed the restaurant in the past.

    It was quite good, overall. The drinks were delicious, but the tomato bisque was the star of the show. The bisque could not have been better, unless they wanted to give a larger grilled cheese with it. Haha! I ordered the trout for dinner and it was good. It didn't blow me away, but it was very enjoyable. Ordered the La Ricane for dessert and that was also fantastic! I really like the atmosphere in the restaurant, but it does get quite noisy. As someone that's hard of hearing, that can make conversation a bit of a challenge. The service was quite good and the servers stayed on top of drinks and food. I'd definitely recommend people try this out, if they haven't already.

    We went for dinner during Queen’s Feast restaurant week & chose the pris fixe option. Delicious! Both the trout almandine and steak frites entrées were outstanding. Had been several years ago, & was delighted that the recent new management has upgraded the experience!! Laney was the best server; she was attentive and knowledgeable…& even ended the evening with a beautifully pronounced “Au revoir.” Looking forward to returning soon!

    Staff friendly the minute we walked thru the door! Very classic decor. Food awesome...very French of course...trout, chicken, nice pear dish for dessert and of course a yummy chocolate offering! Waitress very friendly. The noise level is a bit loud from the very busy bar area up front, but they have some quieter little side rooms that would be perfect to try to reserve if the noise level really gets to you. A lively place for sure and everyone seemed very happy being there so it was good energy. A very positive dining experience. It was our first time and we will definitely be repeat customers.

    Service was not great. Requested vegan option beforehand. Was not honored. Waited a while before appetizer was ready. Meals were served out of sequence. entrees never made it to the table. Had to ask for it “to-go.” Full price was charged for lackluster lunch service. Will not return.

    We had a reservation for 8pm to celebrate our anniversary and had to wait at the bar for around 35 minutes before our table was ready. The bartender gave us our drinks on the house which was very kind! Food was excellent, except the steak frites came out a bit cold. Loved the ambiance. Chalking our experience up to restaurant week - we look forward to coming back and trying again on a normal night!

    My food was good, not exceptional. The hash browns were just a fried triangle of unseasoned potato. The toast was just warmed bread with no butter or anything offered with it. I did see other tables with good looking plates. I would go back to see if dinner was better.
