The food and service was great. However, in the open dining area, the noise less is very, very loud. Also the lack of a vegan friendly menu was a bit disappointing.

What a wonderful evening! We came in quite early because we had a show to go to. Spent some time at the bar and got to meet two top-shelf bartenders, Salem and Jim. They are a pleasure to watch as they work.

The atmosphere at La Belle Helene is one of a kind. It's bright and cheery. It can be a bit noisy because of the tile floors, but that is part of the charm of the place.

We have eaten out in the main dining room, and also in one of the little side rooms. If you like the energy, sit in the dining room. If you want it a little quieter, choose the side room if you can get one. Next time, we will try the nice two-tops outdoors.

Prices are sensible. The food was wonderful. The wine list gives a great selection. The service was attentive without being overbearing. Our server was Cheyenne.

The food was so disappointing, my girlfriends potatoes were crispy burnt, eggs had no salt, my French toast was decent but how does French toast come without any sides for $20? We also had the chicken crepe it was very unappetizing. Overall I would not try this place again. The server was training a gentleman and he was nice however the trainer who was a white woman with black hair was not friendly at all, of course we still tipped but this place is way overpriced and the food was so so disappointing.

The food was good, a bit overpriced for the portion size in my opinion. But what really disappointed us was not a single employee was wearing a mask. As we are not out of the pandemic yet, and the CDC is still recommending them, it’s unfortunate that this restaurant has chosen not to comply.

This was my first visiting and I was very pleased with my experience. Visited for a birthday. They were very accommodating to my last minute changes for the number of ppl for my reservation. Table was ready upon arrival. Love a no wait when you have a reservation. The waiter was very friendly. Food was also very good!. The portion size wasn’t super big the price but it was still very delicious. You definitely have to try the deviled eggs. Amazing! The steak tartare was also good. For entree, would definitely recommend the salmon.

Unfortunately food was only average. Service left quite a bit to be desired. Our server was quite adept at disappearing. After food was delivered no checking on us to see how things were. The water refilling was on point however.

I love the beauty of this restaurant and am very glad that they reopened. The new menu was enticing and am glad to see that Duck Confit is back.

Service needs to improve. I waited 20 minutes for my cocktail and it came after my salad was served. Onion soup arrived and then the main course came very soon afterward. Main course was cold by the time the soup was finished. Our waiter was engaging and helpful.

Noise level makes conversation really difficult.

My food was great and I hope that next time I return that service and sequencing are improved.

Lovely Birthday dinner for my husband. I had made a note via open table how we were Celebrating his birthday after attending the Panthers game. They already had set a special table and presented a beautiful dessert with candle after the delicious meal - happy Birthday written in chocolate and everything. La Belle Hellene is back - thank you, 5 Church Group!

Omelette overcooked One piece of cold toast with no butter or marmalade. Avoid if you re planning Sunday brunch when the Panthers are playing. Parking cost $30.

My cousin and I visited La Belle Helene from Atlanta while we were in town to see a show for a girls trip. It was INCREDIBLE. One of the best ambiances i've seen (and Atlanta has some great ones) with consistently good food across the board. We went for dinner Saturday night and split the shrimp cocktail (so fresh and comes on almost a seafood tower), we each got the tomato bisque (it's a full bowl size) that comes with a tiny (phenomenal) grilled cheese. It was so good we went back for brunch Sunday and sat on their patio. I had the fromage omelette (absolutely killer if you're a cheese lover like me), and my cousin had the rotisserie salad that she said was amazing. I got a bloody mary and if you're a bloody mary lover you know how easy it is to mess up. It was probably the best one I've had. Oh and Will the manager is a gem. 10/10 recommend.

We had an excellent meal where my wife had the filet and I the hanger steak. Both very good with the filet beating out with just a little more tenderness.
Waitress Chloe did a great job of helping us celebrate our anniversary.
