Went solo for dinner during a business trip. The restaurant is a single dining room in a strip mall. I did not have to wait for a table on Sunday night. Despite the place being busy, service was good and prompt. Food was tasty, although not exceptional.

Cannot beat the price of $120.00 for four dinners (three course), two wines and two beers. All four of us ate different meals from the menu, Sea Bass (the special), Steak, Lamb Chops, and Rack of Lamb. All was superbly prepared and cooked. This place is a must to visit---and more than once.

We had a lovely evening at La Vie having a long, leisurely meal of expertly prepared food. Soup, salad and entrees are served sequentially and in an unhurried fashion so that you can really enjoy being with friends and delight in the food. This is not to say that service is slow, because it isn't - it's great. This place... More

Went here New Year's Eve. Staff very accommodating. Meal excellent, as well as price. The soufflé is to die for. Perfect end to perfect meal. Too bad I live on the east coast or I'd be one of the many other regulars here.

Stephan is not only a great Chef, he’s a perfectionist. His food is not only amazingly delicious, it’s beautiful. My girlfriend and I and our best friends dined at La Vie last night. Our choices consisted of Veal Piccata, Filet Mignon, Chilean Sea Bass, and Lamb Chops, all preceded by the most divine Duck Liver Foie Gras with mushrooms that... More

Reliable tasty food at a hidden location. Don't let the plain wrap exterior fool you...the food is great and a deal at $20+ for multi course meal and beverage.

Escargot. Yummm Pâté. Yumm. Had the lamb chops. Tender. Delish for me. If you like gamey tasting need. Get it. Veal marsala. Tender yummy. Chocolate mousse. Must have. If you're a wine snob definitely bring your own. $8 corkage fee per bottle Otherwise. $40 Boudreaux is the most expensive and doable. Definitely a diamond in the rough. I'd come back.

I ate dinner on Christmas Eve with a large group of family members - 11 in all. Everyone was pleased with their meal - which was not surprising. I have eaten at "La Vie" many times over the years and never have had a bad meal here. This family run business is a delight. The owner/chef makes every meal extremely... More

Call for reservations! Although we didn't have reservations we were seated; although she was courteous I felt the lady wasn't too happy about our presence. This is a small restaurant with easy wheelchair access (but the tables are not higher for people in wheelchair to fit properly) it is family friendly and the ambiance was of that of a fancy... More
