GOOD FOR STEAK, CREPES, SERVICE,AMBIANCE – THIS RESTAURANT IS PROPOSING A TRUE FRENCH CUISINE,AND I WANT TO TELL TO THE PREVIOUS WRITTER WHO WAS UPSET.CHATEAU BRIAND IS THE BEST PART OF THE TENDERLOIN,DO NOT ORDER OVER MEDIUM,(chiken is the bestfor well).ALSO,MEDIUM WELL DO NOT HAVE PINK,MEDIUM IS PINK.(TRAIN MORE WITH CHEF) AND AT BELLISSIMO THEY SERVE LE CHATEAUBRIAND LIKE THE TRADITIONNAL WAY AS MONSIEUR CHATEAU BRIAND USED TO EAT.$7O FOR 2,GOOD DEAL TO EAT THAT DISH. I SUGGEST RARE TO MEDIUM TO ENJOY,I AM EATING AT BELLISSIMO 2 TO3 TIMES A MONTH AND NEVER DISAPOINTED,THE SERVICE AND THE CHEF ARE HERE TO SUGGEST THE WAY TO ENJOY THIS TRUE FRENCH FOOD AND APPRECIATE PRIME BEEF.ALSO KOBE BEEF IS A DELICATY,YOU ARE FREE TO BUY IT OR NOT,AND BELLISSIMO IS PROPOSING KOBE SINCE 2 YEARS ,SO IT LOOKS LIKE PEOPLE ARE BUYING IT. OPEN YOUR MIND AND LEARN HOW TO ENJOY DIFFERENT FOOD OR CONTINUE TO BELIEVE MEDIUM WELL IS PINK AN D SUBSTITUTION ARE FREE ,AND THEY DO NOT SERVED FRENCH FRIES WITH CHATEAU BRIAND BUT POMMES PONT NEUF. EDUCATION AND KNOWELGE THIS IS THE ANSWER.DO NOT WRITE THINGS IF YOU DONT KNOW,GO TO CHEESECAKE FACTORY.LE BELLISSIMO HAVE GOOD PRICES,I THINK 70% OF THE MENU IS UNDER $20 AND PROPOSE A GOOD SELECTION OF PRIME BEEF AND WONDERFULL WINE(CHEAP OR EXPENSIVE) AND AGAIN ASK THE CHEF OR A SERVER THE BEST WINE FOR YOUR DISH AND OPEN YOUR MIND ,DONT TAKE YOUR FAVORITE WHITE ZINFANDEL WHITH A STEAK. I AM A FOOD LOVER AND I JUST WANT TO TELL EVERY ONE ,LE BELLISSIMO IS ONE OF THIS RESTAURANT WHO HAVE A SPIRIT AND ON PASS TO BE A TOP PLACE EQUAL TO BEVERLY HILLS OR VEGAS FOR LESS MONEY . ALSO ,TO THEUNHAPPY CUSTOMER,WHY LE BELLISSIMO DID HAVE ALL THIS REVEWS AND VOTED BEST RESTAURANT IE LAST YEAR ,GOLD AWARD 06 &07 BY FOOD WRITTERS IF THE DIDN'T KNOW HOW COOKING.
Puhlease...this is not a great dining experience – Our anniversary dinner saga...since 2005 reviews on Le Bellisimo...it cannot compare to a truly fine French or Italian restaurant. Perhaps it was good a few years ago, but the chef/owner has an arrogant attitude toward his customers. Set in a strip mall -- nothing against the location, but if you locate in such a place you must be excellent! The service was glacier-like -- we had to ask for nearly everything. The coffee was cold & we had to ask for a hot cup. The wine list is vastly presumptuous for the setting -- Opus One at $1200 a bottle might go in Beverly Hills, but is laughingly out of place in Rancho Cucamonga.
Okay, the ambience of the place seems somewhat romantic, but this is rapidly destroyed by the prices on the menu. We were handed a stack of menus & wine lists, including one that presented "Kobe
Beef" with prices going as high as $220. Someone needs to advise the owner that people are losing their homes in the immediate area to foreclosures -- this sort of ridiculous presentation of conspicuous consuming is insulting. For our entree, we ordered the Chateaubriand for 2 ($70 & they charge for changes on the sides) -- I deferred to my wife who likes her beef more cooked than I, ordering it medium well. BTW, our plates had 6 sticks of asparagus & 5 french fries...not exactly gourmet faire! Yes, I know, most restaurants tell you they "cannot be responsible for meat over medium" -- what nonsense! If I can do a steak on my patio grill & leave it pink in the center, a trained French chef should be able to do so as well. The meat was very well-done, with not a trace of pink -- & not a hint of apology from the "gracious" chef. Actually, when we complained about the dinner, he did not have the courtesy to come to our table & discuss this with us! Sacre bleu...what gall, what arrogance! We were greatly disappointed by our experience!
The evening was saved by our dessert -- ice cream at Bert & Rocky's in Upland!
Its about time! I felt like I was back in the French Riviera when I found a decent, French Provencal Cuisine Restaurant. The pasta dishes are excellent, the steak and fishes are Absolutely Bellissimo without forgeting the desserts, and the pricing is fair. I have been very well serviced on each of my visits, considering the crowds that may be present at times. Very romantic atmosphere, live soft music. all things considered, Le Bellissimo is a very pleasant dining experience for a date or with the wife and/or guests. When rating, I consider the menu and service as the most important considerations. I highly recommend Le Bellissimo to anyone who appreciates authentic French/Italian cuisine and pleasant service.
