    We were very excited to dine here. I have but my family hadn’t prior to our visit. We waited at the front for a while before anyone saw us or helped us, then we didn’t have a server for about 10 minutes. We did bring our kids and they were so hungry. It was a special night since we just went to spectrum center for my son’s birthday surprise. I wouldn’t bring kids back to this restaurant. When I finally found what my kids wanted to eat, they didn’t have it. They were out of sea bass and salmon. My daughter was very excited about sea bass. My husband’s martini finally arrived half full with no olives, they were out of olives too. It was a bummer because I’ve had a good experience before but the timing wasn’t great for our kids and we waited a lot. Everyone was nice and I love the ambiance.

    La Belle Helene June 25 2022 6pm Both: Mussels/Duck a l’orange/Citroen mousse Ambience: Absolutely fantastic décor and fittings. Noise level is OK. This the first time we had been back since the pandemic, I understand LBH closed and re-opened with new owners. I couldn’t tell any difference which was fine with us. Covid-19 measures: A couple of staff were wearing masks, and there was hand sanitizer available Service: Some may consider the service slow, but it was obsequiously so. Drinks took longer than expected but not offensively. We were asked at least three times if everything was satisfactory. Total sitting time 90 minutes. Parking: There is a valet, but we had show tickets so took the blue line from So-So. Review: Mussels were delicious, the broth was perfect, and a generous portion so we were glad we shared. Duck is my Eleanor. When she’s good she’s great but when she’s bad she has hurt me. This was perfect, tender duck with the right crispy skin and fat. The orange reduction was served on the side which made for a delicious if unconventional dipping sauce. The dish was served in a huge platter with potatoes and haricot vert my only observation was there was enough food for four people, a hungry person on the street outside got the leftovers. Citroen mousse was excellent. Issues: The check served in mutilated copies of the Iliad upset my once-librarian wife. Would we go there again? Naturellement! LBH and Café Monte are French staples.

    Lovely experience; we are happy to make such a find in Charlotte. And our foie gras was equal if not better than our favorite French restaurant in NYC. We sat at the bar as we usually do and had delightful service from many of the staff. Thank you! We are definitely returning soon.

    We had a great early dinner at La Belle Helene. It's been quite awhile since we've visited so it was nice to see that the quality of food and service remains high. We shared the duck entree, which was crispy and juicy and awesome. Enjoyed a few rounds of cocktails. Very good very fun!

    There were way to many guests for the what the kitchen staff could accommodate. Like other restaurants managing through less staff they reduce capacity to maintain their guests experience.

    Service at this restaurant was not very good. From the unfriendly host and hostess to the server that was no where to be found. Food was exceptional once we received it. But the server was no where to found after taking our order. Someone from the kitchen delivered to food and the server only showed up after we were done to bring us the check. As a result, we were unable to get additional condiments, order more drinks, etc.

    Went on Sunday for Father's Day brunch. Food is very good. Except the bread and pastry basket, seemed a little stale. Not fresh as the brioche and cinnamon bun were hard on the edges. The service was horrible. Took ~35 minutes for someone to bring coffee and take the order for the pastries. Apparently, they put a macaroon on the side with a cup of coffee. I didn't get it, but my wife did. It was amazing delicious. I asked about it and was told they would bring me one, but never did. At one point, the manager was serving us, but we didn't know she was the manager. Because she kept disappearing, I asked the host is she was our server. He said no, she's the manager......The restaurant is beautiful. We were so excited to return as we hadn't been there since it re-opened. It was a disappointing experience.

    Beautiful, authentic high-end French bistro with excellent food. The service was not at the same level, which I attribute to staffing issues stemming from the pandemic. All in all, a great place.

    Service and ambiance was very nice. I had the trout almondine along with the pomme purée. My only complaint was that the trout was not made traditionally so it was missing the brown butter and almond sauce. It was topped with green beans and crispy onions along with the almonds, more onions than almonds. Everything else was excellent otherwise. I would dine here again.

    Have always loved La Belle Helene even before with previous owners. Drink selections and menu selections were great Emma, our server was great. Drinks at the bar not so great due to attitude with one of the bartenders and the long wait to be offered a drink at the bar.Otherwise- we will definitely come back.

    The restaurant was excellent, and the food was amazing. The atmosphere was peaceful and unique with a beautiful immersive experience. The food was delicious. I had the French onion soup; it was rich and creamy. It was the best French onion soup I have ever had in my life. We shared the Ratatouille, and it was superb. It felt truly like we were in France, and it took me back to my time in France. For dinner, I had the chicken which was perfectly cook with delicious spinach and potatoes. The drinks I had were the best part for me. I had a supernova which blew me away, and I also had their tequila drink with honey. You could barley taste the tequila, with a sweet small and taste. Overall, the restaurant was incredible, and I would recommend it.

    This was the second time we have dined there as a family, food and service quality was excellent again however 2 of our steak entrees were not cooked as ordered which was a shame - however the manager took care of it for us without hesitation-Thank you!
