A lobster roll and frites special. Delicious! Better size for lunch than dinner if you have a hearty appetite.
Ate outside which was very comfortable and service great.
A neighborhood favorite!

I have walked by BXL Zoute many times and always kept in back of my mind that I should try dining there. When my friend decided to treat me, I suggested this restaurant. We were greeted warmly and seated. This was during the pandemic and all precautions were present (very high dividers between tables.) The food was excellent and the service was as well. Upon leaving, my friend and I decided we shall return and try the onion soup. We look forward to it!

Went with bf for an easy dinner after doing an escape room near by. Made reservations for 545p on Saturday but the place was pretty empty anyway. My expectations for beer was high bc I love Belgium beer and was not disappointed. Staff helped me pick the beer for both my bf n I and we enjoyed it. Food was good but not noteworthy. We had the bitterballen, salad, beef stew and meatballs. The salad was pretty big but our waitor was courteous to let us know before we ordered two of em. Stayed about 2.5 hrs and the place was starting to fill up.

My husband and I tried early in the pandemic to eat here weekly, we wanted this establishment to remain open. The owner is very nice.
Last night I wanted to see outside at the street,but only asked fir outside. I didn’t love the table and the music was a bit loud.
The food was great, I believe the beouf tar tar was a new addition to the menu. I liked it and my husband reported positively on the muscles. Great food and over good experience.

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.

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!
