Belga cafe is a great place to eat typical Belgian cuisine. Combining an intriguing atmosphere with excellent, light and healthy interesting food. Belga Cafe is a little bit of Brussels on the Hill, with an open kitchen and a sidewalk cafe.

Delicious as always! Only desire is for the tuna tartare to come back on the menu. Appreciate the desire to refresh the dish... but this was and is THE BEST TUNA TARTARE in DC. Please bring it back!!!
The service is always amazing! The staff are truly what makes the place great.
It was our first time out for brunch since the pandemic started and I was a bit anxious with all of the new COVID safety precautions that needed to be in place. I was pleasantly surprised and the experience was great. Tables were socially distanced and staff was amazing and took every safety and health precaution needed to make our dining experience pleasant. Everything from the greeting to the cleanliness made brunch a wonderful experience. Speaking of brunch.....we absolutely loved the menu. My husband and I were pretty regular in visiting on Sundays pre-COVID and had not yet experienced this menu with the larger assortment of brunch items so that was a welcome surprise too. Looking forward to another visit very soon.
So glad to have Belga still available to us! The food is always wonderful and there’s special attention to getting it all right during these challenging times. Thanks to Bart and all of the Belga team for a great experience every time!
Nice menu and great expectations, but the food was inconsistent. Bouillabaise broth was delicious and there was lots of seafood, but much of it was overcooked. The meat in the Belgian beef stew was so tender it almost fell apart, but the sauce was a little too sweet. We were also disappointed that there was no bread to soak up the broth or the sauce. The grand dame sundae was awesome! Great beer and wine selection.
Great little find close to home. Portions tasty, generous and reasonably priced. Only critique would be is I wish they had more specials. Only had one available. Overall everything including the service was great though and definitely returning.
The restaurant was closed and they didn't even warned us 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
Excellent Belgian classics with amazing service and a rooftop bar called Betsy.
It was a pleasant dining experience in these socially distanced times. The staff were attentive, the flatware in sealed baggies and the chef came to check on us.
Amazing brunch! Delicious meal and friendly professional staff. We’ll be back again
Alright food, mediocre service. Although the restaurant wasn’t very busy, they were not very attentive. They also publicized having vegan options and did not.
We made a reservation for Belga Cafe for an outdoor table for brunch. At this time, we're not comfortable dining inside restaurants yet. When we arrived on time, we were first asked if we would take a table inside, which I declined, due to the fact there were multiple tables waiting to be seated. We were then asked if we would be willing to dine at Betsy's, the rooftop sister restaurant, which was again declined as we selected Belga due to wanting items on their menu. Once we were seated at our table, the rest of the experience was good. Food was as wonderful as ever, and we both enjoyed our waffles - the reason we had come back to dine with them.
I have always enjoyed Belga Cafe for the quality of their food and the service. My last visit was no exception. During this visit, they were extremely accommodating with the seating (we requested an outdoor table further away from the sidewalk). That was much appreciated. Also, it was our first time trying the jerk turkey bacon and it was delicious!
Great waffles! Nice area. I would
Def come back! Yummy
Best brunch in town!!!
Delicious, innovative dinner. FANTASTIC Belgian beer list.
The food was amazing and the service was terrific! We will definitely return.
The liege waffles are off-the-scale good!
Delicious waffles and doffles as always! Service was a little slow, but overall great place!
Visited the restaurant for a Saturday brunch, and simply put: just order the Belgian waffles. They are so good, and pairs well with everything. I ordered the Cowboy Hash Browns Skillet, which was very good and tasty. But, I also ordered a small basket of the waffles as a side and they were so good that I got another.
Next time, I will just get the waffles.
Delicious food, great atmosphere
When we got to the restaurant they said they couldn't see the note for an outdoor table even though it clearly said it on our reservation. They tried do make us sit inside which we were not comfortable doing. Call ahead to make sure they have your reservation correct.
Otherwise food and service and drinks were good.
Excellent experience in a wonderful setting. We were there for restaurant week and the value was outstanding
Was in DC for business, and decided to take some colleagues to one of my long-standing favorites. Absolutely lucked out that it was Restaurant Week; the Prix Fixe menu - with beverage pairings - was innovative and wonderfully presented!
The champagne we ordered was out of stock and the one that was brought to the table was more expensive and not particularly good.
Was fun to see Chef Bart at the restaurant but he didn't come up to our table.
We were pleased to sit outdoors and even enjoyed sitting under our large umbrella during a 20 minute rain storm
We have come to the Belga Cafe many times specifically for "Baked Mussels Gratin" and ordered different Mussels not realizing our favorite had been deleted from the menu -- Realizing we were very disappointed when the wrong dish came to the table Management took it back and made the Mussels the way we have always had them in the "before times"
Thank you to all for giving us another memorable eating experience
The meal is wonderful. The service is better. Management ensured that everything was perfect!
Wonderful food, ambiance and service!!! First class!!!
I think Belga does a great job of protecting their customers and staff in Covid times, very strong protocols in place. This place is an institution for brunch so the food speaks for itself - delicious and unique. They do modest customizations for special dietary needs. My only disappointment is for espresso coffee they only have whole milk available. And of course the fact that i always want to order 4 things on the menu but my stomach is only big enough for one at a time but thats why i keep coming back
Very enjoyable experience, friendly staff, nice drinks and amazing food!
Will visit many more times to come.
Brunch is wonderful. Highly recommend the poached eggs with salmon and asparagus on english muffin.
