Always wanted to try this place so we went during restaurant week. I was not impressed. I didn't really think the menu selections seemed French. I did order a French rose and they offered crepes for dessert. Anyway, service was very slow. We both had salmon and it was served over a smashed half baked potato with three stalks of... More

The mussels are excellent, especially served up with wonderful rolls. Nice rose wine, too. I went back a second night and had very good shrimp bisque and a salad. Very good service.

I stopped in with a friend to celebrate Le Chandeleur, Crêpe Day in France. We were made very welcome even at a strange time of day after explaining we really only wanted crêpes. Pas de problème! My friend enjoyed a beautiful and delicious strawberry crêpe. Since I came straight from work and had skipped lunch, I decided on a buckwheat... More

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.

I went with a few friends and my kids for early apps. The salty crepes were alright, they needed more flavorful cheese. Sugary were too sugary even just the batter alone.

This is a nice place in Media, Pa., however it can get noisy and my husband can be quite the grump when he can't hear conversations. For appetizer I got the snails which were good, not great. My husband loved his soup. For dinner she got the chicken, her husband the hanger steak and both enjoyed. At the suggestion of... More

Great location in Media, excellent staff. The food was amazing - highly recommend the escargot and the hare entree, and the homemade potato gnocchi - just delicious!

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 dinner. Food is delicious and service is friendly. Love the crepes, of course. But everything... More
