    We went for an early dinner before a show at Knight Theater. The restaurant was bustling and filled with energy! Our server was great and our meal was very good (steak tartare, french onion croquettes and steak frites), would order them all again!

    Picked restaurant for group of friends before Sunday night concert at Knight theater. Food was good but service slow. Took 30 minutes to get orders in. We had to leave before finishing food. 1 1/2 hours before show was not enough time. We will try again with more cushion of time.

    The food lacked flavor. The “smash” burger was falling apart inside the bun, which was unfortunately stale. The pate tasted the way it looked, oxidized, and the vessel to eat it on reminded me of wonder bread. Really wanted to like this place as it’s beautiful inside. Unfortunately it fell flatter than a warm Diet Coke poured over ice by a flight attendant. If you know, then you know.

    We were so disappointed with La Belle Helene! It was not worth the $$$$!!!!! Not only did we wait for our table for 45-50 minutes, but we were also very disappointed with our meal—the Turkey entree!!! It should have been the highlight of the night! It was, after all, Thanksgiving Day! Their average items on the menu were good. It was very late when we were seated. We were starving! We understood it was the end of the evening, but we certainly did not expect to be served what looked like leftovers for our entrees!!! When we got our entrees, my husband and I ate bits of cartilage in our turkey pieces and some raw Brussels sprouts. The white meat was dry. They gave me gravy on the side, which I did not request. It was our first time eating out for Thanksgiving. We were looking forward to a lovely Thanksgiving dinner, which was a great disappointment! We do not recommend this restaurant to anyone! Especially on a special occasion!

    It was thanksgiving day, and I’m sure the restaurant was slammed from open until we got there for context. Honestly the food was sub par. My appetizer was a chicken liver pate with a very wet salad, and extremely dense toasted bread. The liver had very little flavor, although very creamy texture. Entree was the turkey main course, the turkey itself was good, everything was sort of packed onto the plate much like you would see at a family holiday. The stuffing was also dense, forced into a mold which made it kind of chewy. The cranberry sauce wasn’t bad, nor was the sweet potatoes. The dessert was pretty yummy, it was basically a fancy snickers with gold on top. Moving on to the service. I honestly don’t remember the servers name because of how quickly he was there at our table and then left. He mainly focused on the large party to our right. It took a while for us to get the best of our meal which was a bottle of wine we picked at random Which was brought to us by the hostess. We saw our server maybe 3 times in total. Personally I would stick would just go there for French fries and champagne.

    Thanksgiving Day dinner was tremendous! Prix Fixe menu, great choices, all delicious. The turkey was so juicy and the stuffing was really moist and flavorful. Excellent meal, glad we chose to go out for Thanksgiving, and glad we chose La Belle Helene. Service was excellent as well! Will be back for sure.

    Beautiful place and great service. However, Thanksgiving 3 course meal was not very good at all. Entrees served were not hot, fish was undercooked, turkey and stuffing dry and very bland. Even the rolls for the table were burned. We had high hopes but were disappointed.

    Great Thanksgiving dinner at La Belle Helene. Three course prix fixe menu with some interesting options, including a chicken liver mousse starter that was quite good. Main was a traditional turkey and stuffing - everything was well-made and the turkey was moist and a great mix of light and dark meat. My dessert selection was plain old vanilla ice cream - good, but relatively unremarkable. Large wine list with a lot of options. They were out of the initial Malbec selection my party made, though there was an alternative that was quite good. The cocktail selection was eclectic. The Supernova was very good. The Fromage Martini was…interesting - you could really taste the cheese. I’m not disappointed I ordered it, but probably not a repeat for me. Ambiance was very nice. The space is beautiful and elegant, but not pretentious. Service was excellent. Will definitely be a return trip.

    The food lacked flavor and cohesion. We ordered the tomato bisque and it tasted like a can of campbell's tomato soup. It was accompanied by a grilled cheese toast the size of a cracker. We ordered the Salmon A La Plancha Basquaise and the Crispy Duck Confit. Both of these main dishes were sorely lacking. The accompanying side dishes were luke warm at best and continued the them of lacking any flavor. We were highly disappointed with our meal and will not return.
