    Let’s pave the first step of this review in stating that the restaurant was empty. Population: human at the front with mean mug. Second step on our tour is the exhibit of bad vibes. I mourn the loss of my optimism toward a fun and adventurous day after engaging with the stupidity. HEY, I have an idea! Let’s not seat ANYONE in our empty restaurant unless the entire party (of 3) is here. God and his followers forbid that a party of 3 people sit in our empty restaurant when but 2 of them have arrived. “Our third will be here in one minute. Can we be seated?” “I can put you at a table for 2 and then move you when they arrive” The math is not mathing. If this restaurant was actually nice, welcoming, elegant and … well I don’t know, POPULATED - perhaps, these regulations could pass. Go next door to the Mediterranean restaurant that serves sensational cocktails with a view of The Wharf (Ilili)

    La vie is always a solid spot. The only thing I do not appreciate is the credit card processing fee. It’s 2024 people barely use cash

    Lots of fees which resulted in a significant uptick in the bill.

    Ambience is great. The view of the water from our table was wonderful. The food is good but a little pricey. The service was also good.

    La Vie has never let me down! We were seated in the penthouse section which was a little warm, it being a summer day but we had absolutely no complaints. We did the ‘all you can eat’ brunch and the food was fantastic as always! I wish I could remember our waiter’s name because he was so attentive and very good at giving recommendations on the menu. This is the umpteenth time I’ve been to La Vie and I will be back 😅
