Great service, great food, beautiful restaurant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a special event, special occasion or date night. The food was delicious and our server Quintin was awesome. He was friendly, attentive and made great recommendations. Management is also great at La Vie, in particular Rubio. He was a pleasure to speak with. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
My waitress was exceptional! The good was amazing and the drinks. The atmosphere is beautiful! I love it.
This restaurant is absolutely gorgeous. The food we had at brunch was delicious and our server was great. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be coming back often.
The food, the view, the service..everything was awesome!!! It was a little expensive but I definitely enjoyed myself
Our server was very polite and outstanding. The food was very delightful. For sure will be back again
Very good restaurant for a date or small group dinner.
The restaurant gave us a luxurious feel throughout dinner. The service was quick and professional. More importantly the food was amazing. Can’t wait to go back!
Great environment! Perfect for first dates & anniversaries! Will dine again!
Everything had amazing presentation and was truly unique especially the drinks with all the smoke and the fire it was a greatest dining experience. JP Took care of us she was fabulous the food is fabulous I will be coming back here for dinner and drinks on the rooftop as well great view and location.
Outstanding customer service from the waiter and staff! The waiter provided wonderful recommendations for appetizers and entrees and each were very scrumptious!
Wonderful experience from start to finish. Service was excellent food was very good
The food was amazing. The ambience was great. However the service was subpar. I indicated in the reservation that it was my 21st birthday and the waiter was unaware. In addition, upon arrival neither of the host on the bottom floor or in th restaurant were very welcoming. Nonetheless, they’ve got really great safety tech for COVID.
Thank you im regular in DC from New York and I loved it
Glad to hear you that you loved it. Thank you!
Amazing service and our server Peter was excellent!
Thank you for the great review!! Peter is a great guy and a great server! We'll let him know that he provided excellent service.
It was an amazing experience! I took my husband for his birthday, omg it was awesomeeee! We had the best steak and then the dessert was magical! Loved every bit of it and at the end they gave a greeting to my husband for his birthday from La Vie team. It was a very nice gesture and kept a nice memory from the dinner! I am definitely coming back again and again!!! Aaanndddd I love that it’s halal meat! I went to this place twice in 1 week! Lol all my special occasions will be there 😍😍
Outstanding service and excellent food...The view is amazing. Outdoor dining at it’s finest.
Thank you very much!
Great Birthday Venue, The tables are small for a two seat. Its hard to fit the food and drinks at the same time.
Thank you for your great review!! We'll def reassess our tables size at the next manager meeting. If you come back in please let us know and we'll happily accommodate you at a four top for some extra room! Thank you.
We came here for my husbands birthday! everything was perfect they left us a hand written card to say happy birthday, a bar of chocolate and hand sanitizer.
The food was perfect and better than any other time I came here bravo to the chef! Dessert was also very good I highly recommend this place for a special occasion!

My husband and I, along with two of our couple friends had an amazing experience at La Vie to celebrate our wedding anniversary . From the host and wait staff to the food and ambiance.- they truly made our anniversary dinner a memorable one. We will definitely return. The banana pastry with caramel was DELICIOUS!!!!!!
Food and service was absoultely AMAZING!! We will be back for special occasions.
Delicious food! We had a table in the courtyard which was effect during these times. Much more socially distanced.
Thanks for the great review! The terrace bar is lovely right now.
Sunday lunch with my daughter. We were very pleased with the service and our host. The Salmon came with salad on a side that wasn’t fresh at all. Other than that everything else was great. Thank you,
Wonderful way to celebrate my birthday!
Thank you for joining us for your birthday!! Glad we made it wonderful
The overall experience was great. We had a 745 reservation and were seated immediately. The service was a little slow but they were also very busy. The ambiance was amazing and the food was memorable.
It was good.
Rude host, crowded lobby, huge 15 min wait to the elevator. Our reservation was at 6pm. We arrived at 5.50 and checked in with host. He put us aside to wait, and when we checked on the status of our table at 6.02pm, we were told that we are 2 min late And now will have to wait for the next available table!!!!!!!
Top the rudeness of with mediocre appetizers and overly sweet watered down cocktails.
Would not recommend, more so, there are plenty of better places on the ward.
Good Evening Natallia, Just wanted to reach out and apologize on our end. It wasn't our intention for you to have a subpar experience and we know we just dropped the ball. I actually remember your table, I believe you were attended by another young lady and two gentlemen and sat outside. Our reservation system crashed that evening and the host stand became backed up and our host became quite flustered. Not an excuse, but an explanation, and our sincere apologies for it.
This place is simply beautiful. Please do yourself a favor and gooo!
Thank you so much for your kind review
Beautiful environment! Awesome staff and good food and drinks.
Thank you for the shout out to our staff! They work really hard and are constantly striving to provide the best experience. Thank you also for the your great review. Looking forward to seeing you next time.
Great experience and beautiful decor.
Thank you so much for this great review!! Looking forward to seeing you again.
Absolutely exceptional all around. One of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a while.
It was an Amazing Experience!! My brother from out of town and i had a wonderful time celebrating his birthday there at dinner. The personal touches and birthday details on top of the regular standards of the restaurant made it the perfect time.
From the team here at La Vie, first thank you for choosing to spend your special day with us. Second, thank you for the kind review, we are proud that we could provide exceptional service. We look forward to you joining us again.
Amazing decor with the best backdrop overlooking the Wharf. We set down a little before sunset and was able to enjoy the beautiful view as we had drinks. My waiter suggested the drink in the picture, my apologies I cannot remember the name. I asked for something sweet but strong and he delivered. Great staff and good!
Thank you for the great review and thank you for joining us. The ambience at sunset is amazing, it never gets old. We are happy to have given you a great experience. Warm Regards
The menu needs to be changed, we loved the ambience and the view but we left because we couldn’t find anything on the menu to eat and for the amount we would’ve spent and not happy with our meals wasn’t worth it so we just left and went to another restaurant to eat. 20% gratuity added to each bill and 4% sanitation added to each bill. But if you just wanted to go for a photo op this is the perfect place.
Loved the food and service. I will definitely go back again.
The food was fantastic, took a little long, but I'm sure they were swamped in the back and they got our food to us as soon as they could. There's only little they could do in accelerating the cooking process. The ambient was great, as the location was absolutely stunning and quite romantic.
When you arrive the elevator is a little confusing but my boyfriend and I were able to figure out the floor the restaurant was on. When we were seated our waiter was very prompt on assisting us with drinks and food. The outside area is gorgeous you can see the Potomac and the walls are decorated in flowers. Great place for photos and food!
Love the atmosphere. Unlimited small plates and mimosas, amazing.
I absolutely LOVED the restaurant. It was my birthday and I had such a good time. The staff was great, beautiful atmosphere (inside and out), and so accommodating!
I ripped after 😉.
