This restaurant, although classified as downtown Wichita, is cozy and even somewhat quaint. Carpet, dimmer lighting, waiting staff in white shirts and dark slacks or skirts, real table clothes and napkins! Probably the best fattoush salad in the city. Meat preparation always seems to be exactly as ordered. Staff knows their products and nearly always the wines. After many, many visits as a couple and with groups I don't believe we've ever been disappointed.

Bel Ami surprised us in a good way. Do not be put off from the front street view of this restaurant. As soon as you are inside it is like being transported back to a time of sophisticated fine dining. Our server Beatrice was friendly, helpful, gracious and mindful of our needs. She did not interrupt our eating or conversation but was simply there for us when we needed something, providing outstanding silver service. The food was also remarkable so hats off to the chef also. This is not a place for a small budget but was good value for money as the food was still affordable and very much worth the cost. All in all, Bel Ami is the place to be.

I had a cup of clam chowder, Caesar, and KC steak. Food was excellent, service was top notch and atmosphere was cozy, romantic and relaxing. Fantastic spot, highly recommend.

If we happen to be in Wichita again, this will be one of our go to restaurants. The food was exquisitely prepared, down to the vegetables (although I will say our only disappointment was the undercooked potatoes). I had the trio - beef, chicken and shrimp - each had a different sauce and each was superb. My husband had a seafood medley dish which was also wonderful. Based on the meal, I also splurged out on dessert of chocolate mousse cake. Oh my. Save some room! Service was also great. Ambiance is hushed, candle light and dark decor. They do extremely well with pre-theatre diners who need great food in a timely manner to get to the show. Wine was a bit over priced - however we found this to be true at every fine restaurant where we dined in Wichita and it certainly would not stop us from eating here repeatedly!!

What a delightfully pleasant place to eat! Slow down from the race of life and enjoy this atmosphere! Service is outstanding, the food is exceptional and the ambiance is perfect! Great for a date or anniversary. Or, for entertaining a client. You must make the trip to downturn Wichita and take advantage of this quaint paradise!!
