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

This has been a favorite of mine for Sunday brunch for some time, however, I was a little disappointed recently. I ordered the quiche which was good but didn't taste fresh (even though it was the quiche of the day) and it came with a green salad. The weather was nice so we sat outside, however, there were two bees... More

Been meaning to try this place for years, but recently just stopped in. I'm no French expert, but the place is cute and the food is good. I stopped in at lunch and ordered the Croque Madam and really enjoyed it. My friend ordered the French dip and said it was good. I'll definitely be back for the Croque Madam!

I was born and raised in France, so I'm always on the lookout for a great French restaurant or café locally. I had heard that the owner of La Belle Epoque is French, and the menu and atmosphere seemed reasonably authentic, so my friend and I tried it out for lunch. I was pretty disappointed in the quality of the... More
