Diner Reviews
  • "The noise level was horrible, but the food was fantastic!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Menu is somewhat limited but food is very good and service excellent. Very high noise level so not great if you want to catch up with someone."

  • "You can bet that we will return to BXL Zoute. We loved the price fix, especially the fact that you got a glass of wine or Stella Artois with your meal. Big portions, too. Very tasty. The atmosphere was really cute -- I thought I was in Belgium (except for the fact of all the traffic outside)."

  • "I was looking for a place based on location but couldn't tell by looking at their web-site or menu. What a pleasant surprise! The mussels and french fries were excellent! Great and friendly attentive service without pressure to move along. I had a casual business lunch meeting and was thrilled with every part."

  • "nice staff, solid food - not exceptional but not exceptionally prices either. Easy place to meet a friend for luck in the area and, bonus if the world cup is on because this place knows how to do it right! one croque monsieur and one ceased salad and two glasses of wine - 55 dollars and would be happy to go back and try some other plates."

  • "Recommended. Great Belgian fare, particularly the mussels, pomme frites, and burgers. Excellent selection of Belgian craft brews."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "The moules and frites were just right, my friends got the meatballs, loved them, the salmon, very tasty and the chicken pot pie- which was light and summery, not at all like an american pot pie which I think of a wintery dish- The dessert, the chocolate sundae was yum, but where was the hot fudge? Ah, its the Belgian version."

  • "As authentic a Belgian Pub you will find in manhattan. great menu that's approachable with kids, great mussels and simple yet solid selection of beer. Authentic service (think I know who the owners are) and a staple for us!"

  • "BXL Zoute has hands down the best mussels in NYC!! We went there for dinner on a Friday night. Between the four of us, two ordered the mussels Thai style, one had the cheeseburger, and one the roasted chicken. For dessert, we shared the waffles and ice cream, and profiteroles. BXL Zoute also has an extensive beer menu, both on tap and bottled. Everyone agreed that the food was great! Prices are very reasonable, too! The only drawback is the place has a really loud bar scene in the front of the restaurant. So if you want a quiet spot, ask to sit in the back. We did, and were very happy that we did!"

  • "BXL Zoute is awesome all around. Best beer, best bar scene, best mussels specials, best burgers. No pretense, hearty food, great vibe and good times."
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "Good food with lots of easy-to-share choices. Fabulous beer list. But VERY loud and with a very bright parking garage across the street that adds a glaring light to the front tables."

  • "Service could have been a little faster but all in all a great neighborhood lunch spot"
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "Excellent spot for fine beer, mussels, croques and frites. Easy to overlook--not much to look at from the outside but very much worth a visit. Nicely prepared dishes, made with care. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "I found BXL Zoute on Urbanspoon because I was going to be in the neighborhood. We've made it a go-to spot for dinner after work. The beer, wine, and cocktail menu is good and there are traditional dishes on the menu (steak frites, Belgian meatballs, House terrine.) The entire staff has been friendly and attentive. A great Chelsea spot."

  • "As a tourist to New York, finding a great place to eat was a must. Looking for a good place to eat late at night on a Saturday night was surprisingly difficult to find. But found BXL via Yelp. Glad I did. Just note that the people were a bit dressy, so iron your pants and button up your shirts."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "It was the first Friday of the month, so the noise level was very high. However, our reservation was honored immediately. Additionally, the mussels, which can be served with several different broths, were delicious and plentiful. I would highly recommend them."

  • "Dinner for four - Friday 7 PM. Very Loud!! Less restaurant, more tables running parallel to long bar. OK food - chicken stew, Belgian meatballs (drowning in tomato sauce). Good beer selection. Didn't try mussels. Likely won't go back - TOO LOUD!!!! $260 for four (inclu tip, 7 drinks, no dessert)"

  • "Great food, beautiful space, perfect service. Mussels/frites and macaroni and cheese were cooked perfectly and had great flavor. It was nice to experience a quiet restaurant environment in NY City. Wish this was in our neighborhood at home and not 3 hours away on a plane."

  • "Our favorite casual dining spot. Best beer bar in town. Staff is the best. Just rocks every time."

  • "BXL Houte is downright awesome! They have everything so buttoned up. Food is absolutely fantastic and the wait staff are on top of everything. BXL is always alive and buzzing and just a lot of fun. The food is fantastic and there is something for everyone on the menu. From the cheese plates to the entrees you will be extremely happy with whatever you choose. The chicken "stew" is my favorite!"

  • "What a great little place ! A trip to Belgium in NYC... Staff so friendly ..service great.. We were not rushed at all and were carefully watched over while we ate our amazing dinners! Divine onion soup...Entrecotte cooked perfectly...topped off by silky creme brûlée ... What more could we ask! We will return!"

  • "Arranged for a brunch at BXL Zoute and was very pleased with my choice. We were seated at a comfortable banquette, and enjoyed delicious French Onion Soup, French toast and an omelette, coffee was good and plentiful. The atmosphere was perfect, not noisy, definitely not boring and quite attractive. I'll keep this place on my short list of restaurants."

  • "The food and service were good. I like the cheese plate. My family had a wonderful meal."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Belgian cuisine isn't an oxymoron, but it is distinctive: pots of mussels, plates of fries, beef stew in beer, and belgian beers are the highlights at this cozy place. the mussels were terrific - fresh, clean and perfectly steamed; the fries very good, if not exactly like what you get in Brussels. The carbonnade was just like you get in Brussels - unctuous brown sauce over meltaway chunks of beef - and more fries! A fun, casual place full of people who come for the cuisine, and the camaraderie. A fun evening of well prepared food."

  • "Got a 9 person reservation for the same day, great for groups. Good beer selection. Mussels were a little overcooked, but the sauces were good."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Burgers, Mussels Bitterballen, Boudin Noir, it;s all top notch. Stella never tasted better."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "I came here with 2 other friends for Sunday brunch. The place was quiet and casual but welcoming. 2 of us had Steak & Frites and the other had the mussel BXL Special, and each one of us tried different Belgian beer. I liked the Pomme version of Fruit Beer. Too bad that the place does not offer the beer stew for brunch, which was the dish I really wanted to try. I will have to come back for dinner or on the weekday."

  • "BXL Zoute is consistently welcoming, professional, great surrooundings with high quality food and the best beer on tap in NYC."

  • "Good, basic comfort food, friendly service in a warm atmosphere."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We really enjoyed dining here. The food was very good, the waitstaff very attentive, and the beer selection excellent. We each had an appetizer, an entree and we shared a dessert. Everything was delicious! The only complaint I had was that the food was too salty for me, but I have that problem at a lot of restaurants."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I have dined at BXL Zoute at least two dozen times, and the food and service are always great. Staff is warm and friendly; kitchen is quick and consistent in their preparation - especially the deliciously fresh mussels steamed in a wide variety of sauces/broths. The place really has a feeling of a beloved neighborhood hang-out, and we enjoy just going to the bar just to sample one of dozen or so Belgian beers on draft, and watch some soccer and chat with the bartender. This is definitely my favorite restaurant in the neighborhood!"
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "From the minute our party arrived, we were impressed. The staff was professional and gracious, the menu had a very interesting variety of entrées and appetizers, the wait staff was knowledgeable and professional, and the food (I had the chicken with apple sauce, one of my friends had the salmon, both of which were fabulous) was absolutely delicious! I would return again and again, and I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "Great beer list. Mussels come with frites and are enough to share with 2-3 people. Warm interiors."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "This long alley style restaurant is just what we were looking for in a casual but delicious menu. The sirloin tips in stew was outstanding, couldn't put the fork down. Another dish was the Grand-Mere Moueles Frites was slurping good, right down to the last drop of broth. The frites served with side of mayonnaise were crisp, tasty and not a bit greasy. The rib-eye was cooked to a perfect medium-rare and was quite juicy. It's a keeper and now on our go-to list."
