This place is fantastic! They were so accomodating to us, even on a super crowded night, letting us switch tables when unexpected guests arrived to join our party. The house-made Negronis are wonderful, as are the Belgian beers. And the food is great too -- all in a super fun, friendly ambience. We will go back as soon as possible!

Small menu but plenty. Bar not only has good beer and some decent wines, but bartender mixes a delicious cocktail. Food was paced so we didn't feel rushed. A great place to spend a few hours.

It was so loud we couldn't talk during the entire meal. I asked for the music to be turned down and got a shrug of shoulders from the server. The food was fine, but the evening ruined.

I love this place, food is always excellent and cocktails are great. They also have lots of craft beers - which you would expect for a Belgian restaurant! (i’m a fellow European)
Sometimes it can be quiet, however, often it is very noisy due to the amount of people.

We had a great time at BXL Zoute! We were meeting friends from out of town and needed a great meal and a comfortable spacious table where we could relax and enjoy an unhurried conversation. Food was perfect. The Belgian fare offered something delicious for everyone, adults & kids included. Service was great & overall, a good value.

Very loud music that was hard to talk over. Mediocre mussels that were small, rubbery and tasteless. Frenetic staff was running around and were not very attentive.

The food was excellent. We had moules et frites and other Belgian dishes, all of which were terrific. The noise level, however, made it very difficult to converse, mostly because the music they played was very bass heavy (vibrating through your body) and too loud. It diminished the excellence of the meal and the ambiance of the restaurant.

Het was een heel aangenaam familie etentje. Mijn oudste dochter verblijft enkele maanden in Ohio en een familieweekend met Belgische gerechten was een lekkere en leuke "surplus" voor haar. (En ook voor ons😀)

I'm coming back with all my friends for a giant party - everyone made us feel so welcomed, even fellow guests. Delicious dinner too - don't skip the bread, even if it rules out what look like fabulous desserts.

When you simply crave a fix of moules frites, head to BXL Zoute. Located on W 22 off Sixth Ave, this lively place features a varied menu, and one of the longest bars in the city. The basket of bread is nice, and the profiterole dessert one of the best we've ever had. Attracting a young crowd, it does get noisy, but this is a great spot for a meal before or after theater at the Irish Rep.

Excellent meal, and there was good energy in the restaurant at the tables and at the bar.
Our service was not good, the waitress came to the table to ask us to order (drinks, then dinner) and while we were trying to tell her what we wanted or ask a question, she just walked away. Very unusual. Once we did get to order everything was very good.

Our meal was great! Salads, bone marrow, mussels, all yummy! The noise level was crazy loud for dining. Almost comical trying to have a conversation. Luckily I know my husband well enough, didn’t need to make conversation over dinner.

BXL Zoute is a terrific neighborhood restaurant with good food and plenty of it! 5 friends and I met for dinner and enjoyed the mussels and frites. They offer several different sauces - all of them very flavorful. The server was very attentive and allowed us to sit and drink a couple bottles of wine at our table while we waited for the rest of our party to show up.
The music was a little louder than I would have preferred but we had no trouble carrying on a conversation. The place seems to have an active bar crowd and many repeat customers (of which we are some).

Definitely had the Belgian/bistro ambiance. Food was excellent, and the service good, although a little quirky. Could've been the busy-ness of the place. It was packed, considering that it was a Wednesday. Suggestion: larger water glasses, or else leave a bottle of tap water at the table so there is less need for servers to refill it. The noise level marred my enjoyment because I felt like I had to raise my voice to talk to my dining companions, which probably added to the overall noise level. Catch-22. Overall, great food and ambiance. Would go back again as long as I'm prepared for the noise.

Food was decent. Wine was cheap, but not great. Waitress was brusque and rushed, but host and servers were warm & friendly. BUT we will be back because the atmosphere was lively and warm. We're hoping to turn this into one of our regular neighborhood spots. Now we need to figure out the menu and a friendlier waitress.
