Delicious Belgian dishes. Comfortable, nicely "separated" outdoor dining shed. And a totally charming, attentive owner/manager who made us feel like "old friends" on our very first visit, and very much at home.

Indoor space is very charming.

Great little authentic Belgium restaurant. If you’re craving some REAL beef tartare frites, that’s the place to go! Super friendly waiter and great service. Thank you!

The croquettes were lovely as always. The special veal one they had (Bitterballen) could have used a tad more flavor, and we're not talking salt here. Their Pasta Checca was flavorful and lovely. Accompanying that we ordered the Boulettes de viande which were very well-seasoned however the sauce left much to be desired. The waffle I had for dessert came disappointing hard, albeit warm: I think it was left in a bit too long.

The service was lovely with the waiter keeping us quite entertained.

Absolute best fries in NYC! But also top mussels (prepared in a choice of delicious ways), beef stew (Carbonnades), exciting beer selection, oysters and so much more. When you've lived (or spent a couple decades) in Belgium and have a pang of nostalgia or unmistakable craving, this is the only place to go. But also true if you want to enjoy a lovingly prepared meal in a carefully thought-through space. BXL-Zoute's outdoor dining is cleverly and stylishly organized and will continue to be throughout the winter.

Enjoyed the French onion soup and bread. The music was way too loud, making it hard for me to hear my date sitting across from me. Got the pot of mussels with the white wine and shallot sauce. Sauce could have used more wine or other seasoning, as it tasted kind of bland. Muscles were delicious though! Not fishy at all! Also, we asked for another round of drinks and they never brought them to us, so we just got the check and left.

Everything here is so pleasant and friendly, and it's a great place to have a conversation with a friend or lover. I love it for brunch, the hollandaise sauce is excellent, don't sleep on it!

My wife and I were attending a performance at The Irish Repertory Theatre and lucked into BXL Zoute. We had an outstanding meal, with excellent service. They also were thoughtful in giving us a table that was on the quiet side, as I am hard of hearing. We'll be back for sure.

Wonderful food! We orders moules and frites for dinner and enjoyed the crispy Belgian waffle for dessert. Everything was excellent. The only small drawback was our server was less than friendly and made us feel like a bother. Nonetheless, we will definitely be returning for the food!

I was craving a Belgian meal like I remember from my trips to Antwerp and Brussels. Had dinner here before hitting a comedy show and it exceeded my already very high expectations! Dining area is intimate but not in the overcrowded, no personal space way. Amazing selection of draft Belgian beers. Staff was super attentive and nice. Dinner was PHENOMENAL! Came out perfect and fairly quickly given it was a Friday night at 7pm. Highly recommend here and will definitely go again when we are in NYC again.
