La Belle Helene, named for a French opera, backs up its stunning interior with classic French dishes. The massive rotisserie, visible to diners, was custom-made in France and can cook over 50 chickens at once.

Just excellent. I'm a simple person with simple tastes and have not really been exposed to French food. I know it has this rep but just reading about French food, makes me want to get Mexican. Someone else selected La Belle Helene for a business dinner so there is was. First impression, light, open, airy space and not nearly as formal as I had feared. We were greeted and seated quickly by friendly staff. I ordered the hanger steak and it was served perfectly medium and well seasoned. It hasn't changed my mind about French food in general, but this was great food and an equally great experience.
When the restaurant reopened, we went for dinner and had a wonderful time. The menu was classic and we recommended it to many friends. The brunch, however lacked flavor, creativity and value. There are definitely better breakfast spots uptown. But overall the restaurant feels as if you have stepped off a Parisian street with well appointed design and decor. It's a good place to visit, but I do not recommend the brunch to people.
This was our 2nd time dining at La Belle Helene, and both visits were delicious. We like the vibe and atmosphere almost as much as we enjoy the food! Highly recommend the tomato bisque and the Mediterranean sea bass. Our waiter Taylor was so welcoming and knowledgeable about the menu. He helped us select our cocktails and our food, and everything went together perfectly. Thank you for a great evening!
Its a nice a s cozy place to have a relaxed evening. I loved the food and ambiance. The only reason, I am giving 3 stars is because We never received our drinks that we ordered, after the meal when I told them, they didnt even care to apologize for it. It was kind of rude. But the food from the kitchen is amazing. I loved the taste and presentation.
We were there just for few drinks and it was all worth it. The place was super classy. Ambiance is just amazing. It just lit me up. I love it. If I have a chance I probably will go here again. It a rare place to be in. Most of the awesome place I have been to are usually dark but this place is just beautiful.
