This place is really cute & cosy, the menu is pretty good although there did seem to be a lot of pasta the night we went & I'd had past the night before so wanted to steer away from this so my choices were pretty much halved, which was a shame. I ordered the trout & I have to say... More

We have lived in town for many years, and this place had always flown under our radar. It's in a little unassuming strip mall next to a Dairy Queen, but we decided to take a shot. We are so glad we did. The restaurant specializes in farm to table dining. The menu was eclectic with a wide variety of dishes... More

Service is interminably SLOW! There were only two other tables being served yet our appetizers took 45 minutes to arrive. Our servers were attentive and tried to be helpful with water, etc but, apparently the kitchen staff could not handle the "Rush" of three tables that came in at different times. I had the Watermelon, cucumber & Heirloom Tomato salad,... More

My wife had been here before and enjoyed the food but that time there was no one else in the place. We waited exceedingly long for our food. No big deal but when the very small salad came it had no dressing. Are it since we were starving and there was no sight of the server to ask for dressing.... More

The cooking is excellent. The vegetables are fresh and imaginative. My dinner was the Stonington sea scallops with pesto over crispy kale. Delicious. Is there a better meal in the area? Tell me.

La Belle has aways been one of my favorite restaurants for a special treat. Friends took me here, at my request, for my birthday. It's expensive, but I love the gourmet farm to table menu, so was prepared for that. I have to say, it was a very disappointing experience. We had to ask for bread, which was cold. Service... More

My duck, on the other hand was overcooked, and the plating was drab and uninspired. based on the appetizers, I thought this place... More

The food was delicious and distinctive compared to other restaurants in this area. It is a bit pricey, but high quality. I like that they have small plates and different sizes for the mains. The service was slow, but slow in the French way in which dining is intended to take a long time and the food is prepared fresh... More

This restaurant is in a strip mall and we were one of two couples on a Saturday night at 8 pm. However, it has delightful service a friendly owner, and serves all local food and natural, freshly-made ingredients. The music is lovely but the ambiance was not warm and cozy. We had the chicken sausage with orecchiette and spinach, which... More

We went there for breakfast on a Saturday morning. We were seated and our order was taken. My husband likes his toast dark or well done. The waitress served his order and said the toast were not the way you ordered would you like me to put them in again? My husband said if you do by the time you... More
