    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.

    Whenever we go to La Belle Helene it’s a special occasion. Just going is special. We absolutely love the food, beverages, service. It’s a gem to have In Charlotte. Also, since new owners/management way more consistent quality from kitchen.

    Arrived late afternoon while it was still lunch service, so we had a couple drinks and some oysters to pass enough time to get the dinner menu (dinner service starts at 5 p.m.) Glad we did — the duck a l’orange was delicious, very moist and meaty, generous serving even for 2 people. Also had onion soup, which was good but too sweet and not as beef-broth-y as we like. Still tasty. Our server Benni was really lovely and knowledgeable, attentive without interrupting. Great birthday dinner for my husband.

    Went for brunch to celebrate birthday with a few girl friends. Food was overpriced and service was slow. We were told different in multiple dishes and drinks. When seated there were a few glasses already filled with water and spilled on our table. We should not have had to tell waiter to clean up. After sending back a few drinks with the presentation off (pulp on the inside and outside of glass and incorrect drink) the manager came by where she tried to defend the items and said she personally made a few of them yet as a manager I would think her job is to manage and expertise is not as a bar tender. She never addressed unclean table when we arrived either. The French toast was mushy and quiche overpriced for portion. Overall the ambiance and decor are beautiful but service was poor and slow with parking even worse.

    I was not impressed with the food at all. The only thing I really enjoyed was the deviled eggs. The banana foster French toast was a bit dry. The Nutella crapes had a hard caramel on it, has to scrap it off. The quiche was under cooked. Almost tasted raw. The people that wait for tables kept standing right in front of me. The host just stood there and didn’t ask them to move over to the other side. The only nice thing about this place is the decor, lighting and ambiance. Not worth it

    Unfortunately disappointed with lunch fir my first visit under new ownership. Professional and knowledgeable staff in a beautiful setting in a great location. My Croque Monsieur was overly cheesy, the bread was tough, and the ham skimpy. The pomme frites were thick and not crispy as they should be in the French style.

    Friends joined together for a birthday gathering. La Belle Helene continues to dazzle and impress. Our birthday guest, 2 others as well as my spouse (new to Charlotte) enjoyed their experience immensely. Our server Wenipher was spot on, gracious, thoughtful and attentive. I recognize she did not operate entirely alone, everyone contributed to our delightful evening. It was a rainy, stormy evening with tornado warnings, but you’d not know storms were surrounding the city. Lovely libations, awesome appetizers and each of our entrees demonstrated the varied choices offered. I enjoyed a Bordeaux, onion soup, escargot, crispy duck. It was the meal I anticipated for months since my last visit. We skipped desserts as I made a strawberry birthday cake. Thank you La Belle Helene for a fabulous, memorable experience.

    Absolutely exquisite dining experience. Celebrate my birthday here and the staff went above and beyond to make it special. Matt, our server, was excellent and made sure to attend to our every need. The food was delectable and some of the best I’ve had in Charlotte. Such a wonderful experience I’ll definitely be back.

    We always meet for dinner prior to attending the Broadway Lights series plays. Usually our plays are at Belk, however last night we were at Knight Theater. Our dinner was fabulous!! The wine list is probably one of the best in Charlotte. The service is 1st class from the moment you enter the restaurant until you leave. Excellent menu as well. The servers are professional and know the choices on the menu (not always the case in other restaurants). I also come after the Charlotte Symphony performances in Knight Theater. Don’t change anything.

    We were very excited to try this French restaurant based on the menu and the reviews we saw online. The atmosphere is wonderful, it’s a beautiful restaurant. Unfortunately the menu has changed from what we saw online. Food was a tale of two cities. Appetizers: Ratatouille is served cold, never had it cold before and not our thing. French Onion soup was outstanding. Steak Burger- phenomenal, one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. Duck Confit - one small duck leg, no breast maybe 4 bites of overcooked dry duck; a complete waste of an entree. Steak Frites - had it chefs way, good portion size but overcooked. Wine is expected to be significantly marked up at a restaurant like this but most of these bottles are 3x retail.

    Table was very dirty. Underneath was sticky and had something hanging off it. Told the hostess twice. No one came. Finally wiped underneath ourselves and took both napkins to clean off possible ketchup or jelly. It got all over my pants. Once they brought out our food I gave them the gross napkins and asked for new ones. Finally manager came over and offered to pay my dry cleaning. After a horrible meal, poor service ( saw waiter one time) and average food I expected more of a response
