    Visited this past Wednesday for a business lunch meeting. Service was extremely slow and the medium steak that I ordered was uncooked. Had to flag down the server to inform her that it was not cooked.

    Belgo is in a great location, nice looking venue and generally good service but the food is not inspiring. Beef dip I had was disappointing with shredded meat and little flavor other than salt. I've had better meals at Belgo and hope that my next visit is much more enjoyable.

    My lunch entailed a lunch meeting. I chose Belgo because I knew there is always a good range of diverse, tasty items on the menu from which to choose. While there is an 'energy' to the restaurant which I like, there are also spots in the restaurant where you can carry on a good conversation where people are easily heard. It is easily accessible. The staff is courteous and professional.

    The lunch servers were overwhelmed with so many orders at one time and should not be surprised that office staff have ONE hour to order and eat before getting back to work. We did have a seating of six and arrived on time at 11:45 but our server was surprised that we would have to go by one o'clock and said they would have to get the order into the kitchen as soon as possible due to the number of patrons. Waited for water. Got 5 of 6. Waited for drinks. 5 of 6. Then got a plate with ONE lemon slice. Waited for lunch. 5 of 6. Special order of NO DAIRY/NO BEEF was forgotten. Quickly replaced but that person had to wait. Menu appealing but despite being neighbors in 8th Ave Place, we will not be returning nor taking clients anytime soon.

    4 of us went for lunch. The drinks came out fairly fast, but the waitress did not come back much after that. We shared poutine to start. Had to flag down the waitress for a spoon to dish it onto our plates. A different server brought one of the main dishes and then took the poutine dish without asking if we were finished. We waited several minutes for the rest of the meals to arrive. We had to flag down the waitress for drink refills. She didn't come back to see how the meals were. Overall, a very average experience. I wouldn't be in a rush to go back.

    Came in with a friend of mine for a couple drinks and bite to eat everything was good until I got my grilled cheese, the fries were awesome but the sandwich was cold and congealed. Not a game breaking mistake as I was having good a time drinking and eating those wicked fries but...cold grilled cheese is a downer.

  • a little bit of Belgium in Calgary
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 6/26/2014
    We always enjoy Belgian restaurants and frequently make a point of trying one when possible. We were visiting Calgary for a rock concert and made a reservation to ensure a spot. Good thing the place was packed and not a free table to be had. The beer menu was a little disappointing, but still a satisfactory selection, the charcuterie plate could have benefitted from a bit more cheese and another condiment. The mussels were quite nice considering they were out of season. We will definitely return when visiting Calgary in future.

    Horrible experience. We booked a group breakfast a couple of days in advance. The first time any of us were there for breakfast. No hostess was waiting to seat us, someone came by and very curtly sat us at a table. Another server arrived, friendly and personable and offered coffee. Returned with coffee, no spoons, not enough sugar & cream. Same server took our orders. Original hostess and a kitchen staff delivered our food - quick, hot & delicious. Hostess still curt and inpersonable. Nobody offered to refill our coffee, asked how our food was, checked if we needed condiments, we sat there eating with nothing to drink with our breakie cause our first cup of coffee was gone. NOT ENOUGH SPACE TO FINISH!

    I've had lunch here a few times - the location is great and normally the food is excellent however it appears Belgo may be a victim of it's success. The food was below average - clearly too long on the wait table and bordering on cold, and it was nearly an hour before we received our food. I was quite disappointed, especially having taken a guest and promoting the restaurant pretty energetically.

    Took my mother for brunch here. They had paper cups for coffee and brown paper on the tables. I was embarrassed to take my mum there- paper cups! Brunch was average- your only option was a buffet. It really seemed like they cut a lot of corners to speed things up. Things like covering the pancakes with cheap chocolate sauce instead of offering syrup. The wait staff girls were mostly dressed for an after work crowd which didn't seem appropriate for Mother's Day brunch. Never again.

    Belgo has a surprisingly casual atmosphere; half pub and upper half is (boring, basic) restaurant. It seems like a "suit pub". I was disappointed because we were celebrating a birthday and I expected nicer ambience based on food reviews and their website. The food more than made up for it though! Service was quick and professional. The prices are fantastic too; top value for the quality and size of the dishes. We will definitely be back for casual but great meals.

    For a business lunch, not the best place, unless you need that much noise to fill up the conversation. I think the waitress' need new outfits. If you want loud, then go there, if you want a cool place to hang with the guys after work, then definitely go there.

    I've dined for lunch a few times at Bellgo. The location is convenient and the food is usually good. I wasn't that impressed with my meal this week but would dine there again. The food was just adequate. I wasn't left saying "boy that was good". I had a salad and while I requested the meal size portion, what I received was more like an appetizer. I'm not really complaining, just wasn't impressed.
