    Worth the $$? I'm not so sure. The atmosphere is incredible—just so lovely. Food, OK. The beef bourguignon size was acceptable. The beef was tender and succulent. I'm not sure if Charolais beef was offered. This is a different take on Nicosia Salad. Firstly, it was an absolutely huge portion. The tuna was rare and cooked perfectly to my order. It was far too heavy on fennel for my liking, drowning out the delicate taste. Also, the farro was undercooked or even raw, maybe? It was served with raw pea pods (it must've been the "local greens"). Worth $30? Maybe. But the wine pour, not. Maybe a 5 oz pour. That gets my goat. Oh, they charged us for bread. 🙄 In all, I'd recommend, but not what we were amped up to expect it would be.

    We are at the Easter Buffet. I was not familiar with this restaurant or area so I thought outdoor seating would be nice. Do not make this mistake. It is sidewalk seating, not a standard outdoor seating area. You have to traverse through those waiting for their tables with your food and then through a roundabout door. There was seafood and prime rib. Seafood was good quality. Prime rib was tasteless with small servings. I wasn’t interested in more of the same. I would skip this restaurant for Easter in the future and probably will never go back.

    Our table selected from the “economy gastronomy” pre fixe menu. Everything was delicious! I had the sea bass which was delicate and flavorful. Our table also had steak frites and salmon ala plancha, and everyone was happy! We selected 4 different appetizers and desserts - a great way to sample many menu items. All desserts were yummy but the crème brûlée stood out. So good, and worth the small up charge. Also a shout out to our helpful and personable waiter, Colin. We had a wonderful time!

    Michael made it seem as if the Croque that I didn’t like would be removed my check and when it came he charged me for the replacement item and the croque. I don’t appreciate being misled like that.

    La Belle Helene is our go to place downtown. The atmosphere is always wonderful. The food is delicious as are the mimosas! Service is very good and we never feel rushed. We always make reservations, but there is a beautiful bar which we want to try someday. It's the type of place I would also love to stop in for a drink or a cup of coffee and one of their delicious pastries.

    This was a girl's brunch before a show at the Blumenthal, and we expected better. Our Lattes arrived lukewarm and there was no catching a server to warm them up. All of the food selections, Croque monsieur, spinach mushroom quiche, and a hazelnut crepe were also lukewarm. My granddaughter did finish her crepe, but only 1/2 the Croque. Slow service and an $80 bill, would not recommend!
