    Some of the best mussels I've ever had! Fat, juicy and tasty! Can't go wrong if you love mussels. The other entrees (lunch) also looked fab.

    The food is really tasty and the service is very good. They have a huge list of beers (including many draft beers) and serve typical Belgian dishes. As new Belgian expatriates, we had the feeling to be home for a night.

    Incredible selection of Belgian and other world-class beers on tap and in bottle. Very good European pub food, mussels, fish, salads, but also some hearty fare like beef stew, chicken pot pie, and burgers. I've been here multiple times. This place is outstanding.

    I love the BXL restaurants, I'm a big fan of Belgian Beer. What I loved about the ZOUTE is that it's much less crowded compared to the Times Square locations and you can actually have a conversation and find a spot to sit.

    Lively after-work bar scene. It can get pretty loud inside, and there's lots of soccer on the TVs. Decent Belgian food, which is like a combination of French and Dutch. The Bitterballen are excellent- traditional Dutch snack of fried beef & bechamel croquettes. if I lived in the neighborhood, I might stop by from time to time. I hear their brunch is pretty good.

    Dined on 8/31/2014
    We got the mussels and they were hit or miss. Some pots were well seasoned and with slightly 'thicker' sauces so that it clung to the mussels to flavor them. Some pots seemed extremely watered down to the point where it almost didn't matter what 'flavor' you picked since you couldn't really taste it anyways. The mussels themselves were also hit or miss. Within each pot, I think we each spit out anywhere from a handful to a dozen that were 'bad' or tasted 'bad'. I've never had a pot with so many 'bad' mussels in them elsewhere. Lastly, our server was nice but non-existent most of the evening. We felt like we were spending most of the evening flagging him down or trying to find him. Twice we had to as our busboy to find and send him over.

    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.

    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.

  • The Best Mussels Ever!

    Dined on 5/16/2014
    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!

    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.

    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)

    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!

    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 2/22/2014
    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.

    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.
