The brunch was really good!! The atmosphere and vibe were amazing. Also the rose sangria was delicious. Will come back again
Great ambience food and service! Excellent night out.
Service and ambiance don't make up for the great food.
Great costumer service! Wonderful view, the food was really good and overall it was a beautiful night there.
The atmosphere was great, and the service was impeccable! They were very attentive, and the food and drinks were very good.
The finest service I have ever experienced, from the Amuse-Bouche to the Dessert we were given decedent descriptions of each menu item which perfectly embodied their delectable notes and flavors. A glamorous and grandiose dining experience to say the least.
C’est La Vie
Amazing experience for our wedding date! Will be back for another experience soon.
An outstanding birthday celebration and the Baked Alaska is a show-stopper!
Ambiance overlooking the wharf open and well lighted my new favorite DC spot and I can't wait to do brunch there next time.
I had a wonderful experience! The restaurant is beautiful and the views off the balcony are amazing! I really enjoyed the drinks!
Brunch for our cousins upcoming wedding. The ambiance, hospitality was amazing! It was our first time having brunch. The family style options were DELICIOUS!!!! We can’t wait to come back!
Amazing. Great food and service! I love this place.
Beautiful venue and views. One of my favorite places to visit and I definitely want to check out the cabanas on the penthouse level
It was great! Thank you.
I think the ambience was beautiful however, I think the food is overpriced based on the portions. Its also inconvenient to not be able to substitute items on the menu.
Great place to have celebrated our anniversary. Our server was great and the food was amazing.
Loved everything about this restaurant. Food drinks and service was awesome 👌. Will be making another reservation for my bday
The brunch menu was perfect to sample many different things. We loved the tiramisu French toast and sausage.
Visited La Vie for brunch to celebrate my friend's graduation. We loved it! Great food and service in a beautiful restaurant overlooking the water. Definitely want to go back.
It was an enjoyable brunch with friends and Covid changes buffet brunch to in person service. A variety of foods were brought over for sampling and the server was very attentive to our liking. It was nice view for outdoor seating, mask required while walking, all staff have a mask on. A small note that they offered to validate parking but it was not validated by the attendant on ground level. I'm a bit disappointed with this complimentary offer.
The food was decent, definitely not worth the price. I would only return because of the level of service my small party received. The energy level was great for a Saturday night out.
The views were phenomenal, the interior design and decor was beautiful breathtaking and it’s definitely a mood.
Very nice will decimating be back. Ambience was amazing as well as the service.
The place was awesome but cold, we were frozen. I requested candle light on the table on my reservation, and I didn’t find them.
Food was amazing! The lamb chops were so good that I ate the fat on the lamb chop... and I hate fat! The ambiance and overall interior of the restaurant made fine dining even better.
I had a wonderful time here with my girlfriend. When we got stuck on deciding what to order next the staff helped make some great suggestions. Beautiful decor, great atmosphere. I will definitely be back.
Wait staff seemed confused ... food delivery was mixed up a couple times.
Great ambiance, food and service. Recommend for celebration, girls night out of romantic date.
It was super busy I felt super rushed to move to each meal and the food was just okay. I think we went to late in the day so the food could of been better and service to.
Celebrated at La vie with my girls and it was an great experience! Drinks and food were great! Will be coming back
I would not recommend this restaurant, the food is overpriced and not that good. Our server was good. However, the spacing in there is awful. If you’re going to 2 or less people, they put you at a small coffee table and you barely have room for your food or personal items (phone, purse, etc) I asked to be moved and they said they had reservations. Mind you the restaurant was empty. We were sitting so close to the people next to us, I felt like I was eating at a diner. The food was ok, way to expensive and small portions. The view and the aesthetics of the restaurant was nice, but definitely not worth spending over $200 on a two person meal. Only go there if you have money to just waste.
The service, drinks and ambiance was amazing. The food was good too. I think I got too tipsy before eating. Lol
Our server was horrible. Thankfully another server named James rescued the night. We were celebrating my mom's 60th birthday and our server was barely even around, let alone put any effort to make the night feel special. Thankfully this place has other servers that care (thanks James!!) and bussers that go above and beyond. Considering we spent $600 for 3 people, you'd think he would at least pretend he cared.
The food was excellent and the ambiance was perfect. IF we decide to ever come back, we're requesting James to wait on us.
We were celebrating an anniversary and had a wonderful time. The waiter and hostess were A+
La vie is a beautiful place the ambiance is amazing the views are gorgeous and it’s perfect for pictures. The price is on the expensive side and the food we received was dressed up but bland. The drinks were dressy but no different than drinks from your local bar. Just pretty. I would only go if I want to splurge and post bomb pics to social media♥️
Very happy with our La Vie experience from start to finish. I had mentioned in the reservation process that it was my wife’s Bday. Upon arrival at the table, there was a little card and box of chocolates (nice touch and customer focused). Service was excellent and attentive. The menu offers many options and all four of us in the party we’re pleased with our dishes. We had a lovely view through the large windows and the interior design is fresh and unique. Would repeat and recommend!
Came here for my husband’s birthday..
Elegant view and setting!
Will definitely be returning!
Great Food, atmosphere and service! We came to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was perfect!
Perfect date night vibe. My wife and I got a little dressed up and snuck away without the kids. We had heard about La Vie on the Wharf from a Facebook social group DMV DOES, and it didn’t disappoint!
What we loved: friendly hostess/serve staff
Location: on the wharf, we ate on the rooftop terrace overlooking the water
The food & drinks were on point (we had mocktails but neighboring tables raved about their spirits.
Decor & ambience is posh and feels upscale: great for brunches, date nights, & a girls outing
2 hr table limit- this allowed for us to not feel rushed and have great convos. We even stayed a bit over our time to take a few insta worthy pics
Parking is at a premium. The garage was full, street parking was also so I walked about .5mi after finding a spot in L’enfant plaza.
The price: it’s pricey! While we loved everything about our dinner experience…1 app, 2 entrees, 2 drinks (no dessert) came up to about $200 with tip so be prepared for that.
It’s worth the money but for our budget it will be a special event type place and not a regular spot.
Full was good and had a lot of choice! Atmosphere is fine and the cadre is idealistic.
