This was our second visit to Belfre for dinner. We made our reservation far in advance which I strongly suggest since they seem to always have a line. The atmosphere is wonderful and their kitchen does an excellent job of accommodating allergies. We loved the scallops appetizer and my husband has had their hamburger twice and raves that it is the best. They had run out of cake so unfortunately we were unable to try dessert but that just means we have an excuse to return. Definitely a place to try if you haven’t had a chance to eat here yet!

The main course was very good. The cobbler and chocolate cake were almost inedible. The cobbler had like canned fruit that was hard and the cake was very dense and dry. Thankfully they were removed from our bill.

the questions above is a yes with a but it's expensive. I had the beet salad with salmon and 20.00 is to me outragous for that food. I have had just as good other places. the food and service was very good but way too expensive for a lunch item. a 20 dollar small salad is rediculas. I realize it's "Delafield" but still. There are way more outstanding places to eat that are resonable.

Crowded and was seated upstairs..which is very loud. Food was served quickly, but lacked the pizzazz that its had in the past. Tomato bisque soup was so thick and strong-like tomato purée. Our entrees were the chicken pot pie. Flavorful, but chicken tasted less than fresh. Fresh donut desserts were great-served hot and freshly made. Cost was high for what we received. A bit of a let down from the many times we’ve visited in the past.

Underwhelming with mediocre service. We had heard good things and wanted to like Belfre but our experience was far from what we expected. My husband waited over 20 minutes for his cocktail after being out of the type of bourbon he ordered then our server charge us for most expensive Chardonnay btg than what I had actually ordered. Food was good but over priced nothing that I’d want to come back for. All around disappointing experience will not be returning.

Outstanding food and service. The place is really loud though and that would be my only complaint. Besides that, a great experience. We had a party of 8 and everyone loved their food. We had lamb chops, scallops, steak, pasta dishes and salmon. Yum! We’ll be back for sure!

The wife and I had never been to Belfre before. Intimate surroundings, very energetic crowd. We relied on our friendly waitress to make recommendations. She suggested the tuna tartare for a starter and the salmon and filet for our entrees. Our meal was truly outstanding. Everything had a wonderful flavor and you could taste the quality of the ingredients and the care used in preparing the meal. I would highly recommend!

Very good food. The salmon was great. The fresh donuts were amazing. Not very gluten free friendly. Limited gluten free options and did not seem willing to work with you regarding modifying menu items.

Overall a very pleasant and yummy experience. I would just consider some small lights on the tables upstairs, it’s a little dark trying to ready the menus. My salmon was a touch overcooked but still tasted great.

It was New Years Eve. We should have known better. Limited menu, extremely high price for the meal we received. 3 course dinner was very good except the desert was poor. We had lobster bisque which was very good, the Chilean sea bass was very good but small portion on risotto, and a desert. We each had one mix drink (two of us) and the dinner came to $200.00 plus tip. They also were pushing each course very fast as they wanted to turn our table, very obvious that they wanted us out in 45 minutes to an hour. Felt rushed and under appreciated during the meal. We were clearly just a number.

For $200 plus, this was a rip off. Not worth the money even though the food was good. Not sure I will come back and I’ll make sure I check the menu better in the future; especially on New Years. The normal menu was not in play so we only had limited choices. I get it, just felt like it was way, way overpriced.

Made reservation for NYE and belfre called to confirm res and understanding of limited menu.
The price for the evening was steep ($98 for steak entree $85 for sea bass)
Rib eye with mashed potatoes, asparagus and dessert was as over priced as the risotto and sea bass.
The bisque was flavorful but on the thin side and could have given another dessert choice.
The charcuterie (not included in the above prices) was outstanding as were the wine choices.
I’ll be back as regular menu pricing looks more in line with market.

Excellent restaurant! We had gone there about a year or so ago and the menu was just way too weird. So we checked the online menu again before going Saturday and it was completely new and looked very good. We are so glad we went again! Great selection of scotch, bourbon and wines, cool ambience, and excellent service and food! Highly recommended... go there!!!

It is quickly becoming one of our favorite places to eat in Delafield. The food is fresh, nicely presented and the cocktails were delicious. It is a little pricey for a week night "I don't feel like cooking" outing, but for a special occasion, well worth it. The service was excellent and attentive but not bothersome. It gets a little loud in there b/c of the high ceilings and the tables are a bit close to each other, but neither of these things would scare us away. Get a reservation (Open Table) as soon as you know the date/time b/c it is a wildly popular place--which speaks volumes!

We have been to Belfre Kitchen before and it has always been great. Yesterday was no exception. We shared a plate of Thai Sweet Potato Fries which we all loved. Two of us had the Protein Bowls. The falafel was perfect and the combination of the quinoa, vegetables, avocado and eggs in the bowl were seasoned beautifully and just the right temperature. One had the Tuna Tartare which they thought was perfect and the other had a special of the day - Lobster Benedict - which they also thought was wonderful. One of our
diners particularly enjoyed the loose leaf tea - green with Moroccan Mint, Jasmine & Raspberry. The service
and wait staff were very friendly and prompt. There are times that noise is an issue, but yesterday we were
lucky to be seated where there was a short wall and so were able to hear one another without a problem. We all would highly recommend Belfre Kitchen!

After making a reservation we were seated upstairs out of the way. It was our 32nd wedding anniversary and were told this restaurant would be a nice night out. To our surprise it was not. We then asked to be seated downstairs and were put in the corner and did not get to enjoy the ambiance of the room. When we left the hostess at the front door did not even say thank you for coming!! Needless to say we will not be returning!!!
