Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

Divine onion soup...Entrecotte cooked perfectly...topped off by silky creme brûlée ... What more could we ask! We will return!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "We ordered the blood sausage and scallop appetizer, two kinds of mussels, and steak tartare. Everything was delicious! Service was attentive but not intrusive. I was pleasantly surprised by how much open space there was in the restaurant...most places would try to cram in twice as many tables. Would definitely recommend for groups or double dates. Reasonably priced. A new neighborhood favorite!"

  • "Our 4th time here for Mussels and a good experience every time. We like the Moules Thailandaises-slightly spicy exotic flavors. Our friends who love mussels had the classic Marinières, agreed that they were outstanding. For dessert, the chocolate mousse is intensely chocolate and the expresso creme brulee is perfectly done. With friendly & efficient service, this place is a winner,."
