    Very nice decor. Food is good as the ambiance. Staff helpful but didn’t like them bringing the bill without asking if we wanted any dessert or coffee after the meal. Should not press tables to leave specially when nobody is waiting to be seated

    Great ambience. Recent visit was for brunch, bacon quiche with salad was very good. Good sized portion of slice of quiche with great taste, pretty basic accompanying spinach salad with sliced radishes. Hamburger was fair, two patties of beef on petite tasty soft bun. Unfortunately, first taste biting into the burger was an overwhelming amount of salt and accompanying side of fries were cold.

    Great location and such a cool restraint. Ambiance was fantastic. Brunch was fabulous. Server was new and still training so that’s why I rated 4 starts but still good. Food and Melissa were delicious. Will definitely be back here and highly recommend their brunch.

    We ordered several appetizers. The escargot was ok, the biscuit that it was served with wasn’t cooked properly. The foie gras wasn’t seared and under seasoned. Now the good part, the steak tartare was lovely! Nicely seasoned and full of flavor. My wife and I then shared the duck confit which was a hands down winner, the braised leeks were a wonderful complement. Overall the dinner was a huge success. Beautiful ambiance and wonderfully attentive waitstaff.

    Celebrated a birthday for a friend with a group of 6 total people. It was perfect! The food was amazing- the chicken and the beef bourguignon were the star entrees. While we didn't have dessert there, they brought a lemon citron for the birthday girl, and we all got to try it. It was superb! Service was exceptional and we will definitely be back!

    Great food and ambiance; hoped for more of a wine selection though; valet took about 15 minutes to get car which made us a LITTLE late for a concert but no big deal and I know parking is not under your control.

    Disappointing onion soup (not hot), pomme frites which were worse than fast food fries and very slow service. Beautiful place and my wife liked her duck confit but she was disappointed with the portion size in relation to the price. There are better dining opportunities in uptown Charlotte than this establishment.

    We had a large party so very understanding when meals came out in stages. We just allowed those served first to go ahead so their beaks would be as the kitchen intended. There was not one crumb left on any plate. The service was polite, knowledgeable, & patient. We had a birthday and there was a special treat just for her. Very enjoyable and can hardly wait to return.

    Excellent food and service, with pacing according to our wish for an intimate wedding anniversary dinner. Valet parking was very convenient. LBH has a good wine list with fair pricing by restaurant standards. The chicken was the best ever, and the portion made for a good-sized take-home meal, too. In short, an outstanding evening that we look forward to repeating.

    The food was 💯 — still thinking about the special beet gnocchi and dreaming of the bernaise sauce that i pretty much put on everything. We had Matt as our server and it was his first night and he was awesome! Cocktails were bomb.

    Not a great experience. An entree arrived (after the starters) before the wine arrived! Then it turned cold while waiting for the other main plate, and the wine was still MIA. It was all strange and upside down. I think our waiter had way too many tables. To the restaurant’s credit, they recognized the complete unsatisfactory nature of the event and they provided a complimentary dessert and comp’d the two main plates. I’d give the restaurant a second chance because they acknowledged the problems and sincerely wanted to resolve.

    Great service and friendly staff. Unfortunately, the steak I ordered medium rare was not correct when it was delivered. I sent it back and the staff graciously tried to make it right. When another one was presented, the second steak was still way over cook and dried out. I ate 1/4 it and was done and didn’t send it back. Sadly, this is not my first issue with steaks at this restaurant. If I visit again, I’ll just stick to the trout or another dish and forgo another steak attempt. :-/

    It was a disaster from the moment we walked in the restaurant. We were told to wait at the bar for our reservation as at the time she had no seating for us. She said they were still getting tables for the 5:30 reservations, which was 30 mins prior to ours. After spending $50 plus tip on 4 drinks, we had lost our space at the over-crowded bar to stand in the crowd at the front door. People that came in after us were seated before us. We waited an hour standing by the door. We had to give our order to the water guy. Our waiter was a no show. We were served our food without plates. We had utensils but no plates. Ordered the duck a la orange. It was duck but not orange. The green beans were fuzzy and the potatoes tasted like they weren't cooked all the way, still green tasting. It was pretty bad.

    You cannot go wrong eating here. I have had dinner and brunch here. Each time I have excellent professional service, and the food is always amazing. They always add a special touch and a little something extra to delight you. Portions are not huge but the taste will not disapoint. You can impress a date here, enjoy a gorgeous Sunday brunch, or sit at the long chic bar for a cocktail or coffee. Hate driving uptown and paying for parking, but it is kind of fun to down uptown.

    Food was absolutely fantastic. The restaurant was very busy on a Friday night, so our server was a little behind. They went above and beyond to rectify it without us even having to point it out. We’re from out of town, but will definitely be visiting again if we find ourselves in Charlotte in the future.

    La Belle Helene never disappoints. My wife and I had a date night in uptown and went here as our favorite dining spot. The service has always been good but this time even better. Between servers, bussers, and the kitchen they were all on their game. We both had the tomato bisque which comes with a cute little grilled cheese sandwich as a starter and it was so good. As the weather cools this will be even a better way to start a meal. We both then had the rotisserie chicken as our main course…it is so good but so big! We could have split one after the starter and will probably do that going forward. We took home half (which is great warmed in an air fryer!). The citrone dessert is our favorite so we shared that to finish. All in all another wonderful experience dining at La Belle Helene!!!

    Beautiful Art Deco/Art Nouveau setting. We were in a big comfy banquette. Trout was better, and a better value, than boeuf bourgignon, which I felt Georges (no longer in Charlotte) did rather better. Worth it for the decor; not enough value when so many other options are available.
