Vanessa worked with chef to come up with a vegetarian dish that was not on the menu for my mother who has dementia and will not eat meat. It came out tasty, a pasta dish full of veggies. All the food was great. Our larger group thoroughly enjoyed our dinner out. Thank you to Cafe Bel Ami for a wonderful time!

As far as service we could in no way asked for better. Our server provided an impeccable dining experience from the moment we walked through the door. The food was amazing and perfectly timed. Bel Ami is one of a kind in Wichita. I do plan to return.

We have lived in Wichita for 30 years but somehow has never been to Cafe Bel Ami before. It is far and away the best restaurant in town, which I was not expecting. The scallop appetizer, Viennese salad, Bel Ami trio, and dessert were prepared to perfection. We enjoyed the atmosphere so much too. It was so welcoming and enjoyable. Our server Matt was outstanding even though he was working so hard that night. We had the best time celebrating my husband’s birthday, and Cafe Bel Ami will now be our first choice for any occasion. The decor could be updated but it was still fine. Thanks so much for a wonderful evening!

I love Cafe Bel Ami. I can’t believe that the building across the street is still under construction. I think the city should not allow them to keep everything blocked up for years the way they have.

We were celebrating an anniversary with good friends who had never dined there and it had been a long time since we had lunched there. Our friends were very impressed and we were pleased as always with the food and service. It is our favorite go to restaurant, would eat there more often if the parking situation was better. Please keep up your great food and service. Thank you. JCH

Entering, we were greeted immediately. With the reservation we were seated within seconds. The daily specials were described very well. We ordered an appetizer (artichoke dip) and only wanted water to drink. Our main dish orders were the seafood Melange and the Salmon Daily Special. They were both great. It was a great night for dinning out for us (wedding anniversary). We would recommend dining here and will definitely be back again. Thank You

We had a very nice time at Cafe Bel Ami. Good food, good portions, good staff. Seating was a problem at first, as three groups were crowded together at one end of the room. I asked to be seated elsewhere, and that solved the problem -- and everything else about the evening was quite good.

Food is consistently good as is the service. Bel Ami has been around for a long time and we enjoy going; however, she needs a facelift. Seats and arms of chairs are very worn, Sheetrock is missing on some corners, and she is looking a little tired.

Bel Ami was wonderful and the food delicious. The potatoes in my meal could have been cooked longer and perhaps the chicken a bit less, but nothing serious. The ambience overall was great but there were some areas that could have been cleaner: plaster droppings near my window seat, cocked picture to the north, smudged tablecloth at the entrance, and dirty window frames just outside. But dessert was smashing and we will come again with discerning French guests! Overall, a lovely experience.

The restaurant looked outdated in its decor in the sense of paint hadn’t been touched up, carpet looked stained and dirty, the chairs padding were cracked and a cheap paint job to make it look like marble was present. The staff were friendly enough but we were only checked on once and not offered option to order dessert whereas other tables were. Felt rushed to leave. The food was absolutely delicious though, very well made! Will definitely try again, only because the food was yummy!
