We always have a good meal here. The service is great and a very nice wine list. Fish specials are always good, lamb excellent. A refreshing option over some of the overcrowded, nothing special restaurants on State Street.

We were in Media on a Saturday night without reservations. We had been at La Belle Epoque several times before and noticed some empty tables through the window. So, lucky for us, the hostess found the only empty table for us. We had a wonderful...More
