We have dinner at La Belle Époque a couple times a year. We are always impressed with the service and the food is wonderful. The restaurant is simple but cozy and the atmosphere is soothing.

Been here about 3 times now. Always a really enjoyable experience. The service is good without being rushed. Each time I’ve gotten the Filet because I enjoy it so much! A great spot for a night out.

Lovely lunch today! Was a little nervous about dining out given covid, but restaurant practiced safe, appropriate care.
Service was great, food was yummy! I had a salad with shrimp, we shared a le mer crepe as an appetizer, and escargot. My husband had a burger, daughters had omelette. Delicious!

A delicious meal, beautifully presented by a wonderful, friendly and knowledgeable waiter on a cold Saturday night in January. Lovely from the time we stepped in from the cold into a warm, inviting and cozy space.

La Belle Époque is one of my favorite restaurants. They have consistently amazing drinks and the most delicious food. My favorites are their Duck, Mussels, Salmon Fume sandwich, French dip, and their soups. The service is always consistent and the servers are lovely, especially Wes and James.

Drinks were delicious, well constructed.

We went specifically for the mussels and were a little dissapointed. Some of the mussels were large and sandy. The last time we ordered them (about two weeks ago) they were all PEI and uniformly sized, no sand or fishy taste. The sauce was excellant as usual.

Filet and Penne pasta dishes were excellent. The chocolate mousse and lava cake were almost too much chocolate, but that would not be possible.

Heading back in about two weeks for mussels and wine.

This was our second time at this cozy bistro and it once again did not disappoint. The server (a young man whose name I neglected to remember) was personable and friendly but non-obtrusive. Due to Covid guidelines the tables were spread out appropriately and it was nice to see that it there were four or five tables in use on a cold Thursday night. The steak filet au poivre over mashed potatoes with asparagus was cooked perfectly and was fabulous. My wife's scallop entree was also terrific. A very nice experience!
