    Steak was unevenly seasoned and much more rare than medium rare. The food was okay but not wow like I expected.

    Very nice reception from hostess. Excellent service. Timely and attentive arrival of courses. Meal was excellent. Oysters were exceptional, salad was very good. The trout preparation was novel and light and very enjoyable. Similarly the creme brûlée was nicely done and not routine. Wine selections were very good. The Inniskillin for dessert as always excellent. All in a wonderful French brasserie experience. Excellent ambiance and a nicely done dining room and bar which can be hard to find anymore Price is moderately high but a good value for the experience.

    Pretty disappointed in the food and the service. We sat at the bar for almost 20 minutes after our reservation was scheduled for because they didn’t have a table open. We were there for 3 hours, and had to ask for water refills 4-5 times because it was never offered. They kept trying to take our wine glasses even though we were waiting on a bottle of wine to come to the table (which took about 30 minutes). The appetizers were delicious but the entrees were not cooked to specification and lacked any type of seasoning. They were also out of two of the dishes requested. Finally after not seeing our waitress for over 30 minutes, I had to go to the bar to get our check. We were not offered to go boxes even though we had food left on the table. Overall a pretty terrible experience considering how expensive the restaurant was. Bar staff was super great!

    My husband and I came here on a date. It is a beautiful restaurant! I mean, I loved everything about the environment. The only reason i didn’t give the food 5 stars is because the leeks and potatoes in our dishes could have been cooked a little longer. And i didn’t give the service all stars because when our food was delivered it wasn’t hot… not cold, but you could tell it didn’t come out when it was ready. Also, there was a long time period between ordering drinks and then being delivered. BUT i would absolutely go there again.

    Visited for a working lunch. Elegant space with a beautiful, long bar. Brilliant flowers everywhere. The food was delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed the French onion soup, my colleague felt the same about the tomato bisque w/grilled cheese. The Croque Monsieur & Le Steak Burger were both phenom! Jewel & the rest of the staff were attentive and friendly. Will be back.

    We dine at LBH regularly for dinner before the theatre so thought I'd do a business lunch there. The chicken salad sandwich was disappointing. Served on largely stale bread and the chicken salad itself was not well cleaned. Lots of inedible pieces to remove from your bites. Served with likely bagged kettle chips versus an in-house side.

    Ambiance is amazing, but the food was less than stellar. My mom, sister, and myself all weren’t impressed with our food. It was bland and not very “French” at all. Mt Croque Monsier was made with french toast type bread instead of a croissant or baguette. Save your time and go to Cafe Monte instead.

    Second visit and food was great. Nicely appointed decor. Fair amount of ambient noise but not overpowering. Bar service was a little slow but couldn’t see the bartenders to know if they were understaffed relative to the number of patrons. Will go back again.

    A very disappointing experience. The service was the absolute slowest I’ve ever experienced, taking 50 minutes before we even got a round of drinks. Our two appetizers we ordered never arrived and the waiter never acknowledged them. Steaks were ordered rare and medium rare and came out well done. It also took 35 minutes to get another drink, but the bar was seemingly empty.

    Restaurant week is challenging for a kitchen to show off its culinary skills and for the wait staff to keep up. La Belle Helene did both. Everyone was busy filling water glasses, cleaning tables, bringing food and drinks, but it appeared seamless. The food and service were outstanding. I'm still puzzling over the tip for the kitchen staff, though. They're not traditionally involved in the front of the house, and their pay should reflect that, rather than suggesting patrons tip the kitchen staff in addition to wait staff.
