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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!
