    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.

    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.

    We ordered escargot and it was Ok, nothing really good. After we ordered angus burger with fries and the fries were grease and fluffy. We sent them back, the new ones were Ok. The place is cozy and well decorated, like english bistro’s. Service was Ok.

    I love coming to Belle Helene. However, I don't think a French chef would thing too much about the Croque Monsieur and Croque Madame. Way too much bread and/or gelatinous sauce. Everything else great

    Came for a Saturday brunch and everything was perfect. The restaurant is beautiful and open with plenty of of seating options including some cozy nooks. The brunch menu had plenty of options with out being overwhelming so there’s something for everyone. Food and drinks came out at a reasonable time considering they were getting busy when we arrived. Everything tasted amazing and the complimentary cookies was such a cute touch. 10/10 recommend.

    We had a wonderful experience and couldn’t be more pleased. We visited La Belle Helene to celebrate a birthday, and everything was spot on. The ambiance is lovely. It’s not too loud…we were able to have a conversation without a problem. The food was delicious, all perfectly cooked and wonderful options. Finally, the staff was second to none. From the minute we walked in, they were intent on our having the best experience. Everyone was kind and attentive. We will definitely be going back.

    So many small touches build up to an AMAZING experience. I went for my 22nd birthday and definitely received princess treatment. Menu is concise and everything I had was delicious. Cocktails were yummy and the pour was very much worth the price. The ambience is beautiful, the staff were ALL extremely kind from hostess to server to busser, and they have a coat check which I always appreciate. I will 100% be back, the food along everything else keeps a special memory for me.
