Enjoyed the food very much. There was an incident where a gentleman choked on a piece of steak Saturday night. We were at table right across. If it wasn’t for my brother in law taking action on behalf of his and his spouse I am not sure if any employees at the restaurant would have taken care of this terrifying issue. Also I thought charging them was in very bad taste.
Food was good. I wish they had a few more mussel options. The one they had was way spicier than we had anticipated. Service was great!
Guests from back east. Food was really slow arriving for a place 90 % empty at 12:15 lunch time.
The waitstaff were very nice but food service was really slow. The food was unremarkable, especially for the price. Yes, steak and fries, but even in Belgium its served with some salad! The onion soup was boring, the chocolate cake was really dry and tasteless and the cherries didn't taste brandies, just sugary and hard. The croquettes were good but much smaller than in Belgium. Also fun ambiance but got super loud!
I wanted to like it but I didn't. At first the service was good but was strange at the end. We both had nicoise salads. The ahi tuna was overcooked and stale.We specifically asked if there were pieces of anchovy in it and she said yes. The salad had no anchovies and dressing was good but no anchovy flavor . The rest was pretty lackluster. The waitress took my plate while my friend was still eating (bad but all too common) The minute I finished she took my plate and plopped the check on the table. She never asked if we wanted dessert. The place was almost empty so they didn't need out table. I live in Cow Hollow and won't be back.
Our server was awesome. I’m sorry I didn’t get her name. When she found out it was my birthday, she brought us a chocolate cake dessert. She was very efficient and attentive. We all enjoyed our lunch at Belga.
Ambiance was nice. The service was good but not outstanding. Both my friend and I's eggs were overcooked. I sent mine back and they still were a little over cooked. I would go back and give it another shot but not rushing to do so.
Our waiter was incredibly unfriendly. The service made what should have been a nice lunch pretty unpleasant.
slow service, sitting for 15 minutes before even receiving our drinks, 30 minutes for our meal, loud echoing voices, food not that outstanding to put up with the noice and slow service.
We had a good experience at Belga for brunch, the one downside was that I went there for the waffles and they were out of waffles!!! Not great! But we had the beignets, croque madame and veggie scramble and they were delish.
Impossible to have a conversation. Painfully loud. A shame since staff are pleasant and food is good.
Lovely service great food
Love the quinoa salad with rucola and tomatoes.
My family favorite are scrambled eggs and the roasted potatoes with rosemary.
Dinner was for a family night out; seating was quick and efficient. The tables and seats are comfortable and the table at a good level [many spots have tables set low or too high for many children]. Our server was kind, attentive and efficient without being overbearing. The wine selection is decent; the German reds are to be highlighted and provide real value. The food was a bit underwhelming... The mussels were in a tasty broth, my pork schnitzel was a bit on the bland side... The spaetzle could have a bit more to it as well. If I were to return, I would request sidewalk seating and stick with more of the appetizers.
Very good brunch spot! Nice open and pretty restaurant. They have a pretty healthy menu which I love! Great brunch drinks too! Good value for either intimate group or bigger group!
Exceptional...Jess is a world class server...she took great care of us and steered us through an enjoyable brunch. A+
I had been dreaming about those waffles all week- they did not disappoint! Our server was lovely.
BELGA HAS BEEN ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLACES IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD, PERFECT PLACE TO GO WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
Small portions of okay food for brunch- not what one would usually expect when orsering one meal for both breakfast and lunch. Fresh ingredients for veggie scramble. Waffle was so light and airy that the person who ordered it asked to go get food immediately after leaving Belga! Benedict was the best but had three little potatoes as the side which was weird. Coffee came with milk, not half and half. Asked for cream and we finally got whipped cream to put in the coffee at the end of the meal... Which had gone sour. Waitress first argued with us but then apologized after she smelled it.
The food here is fine, nothing to write home about. But the service and atmosphere is always nice. They also have a great happy hour.
Small portions but overall good quality & ambiance.
The service was nice and efficient. She brought things in a timely manner and was very knowledgeable. The food was a bit lacking. The pretzel was stale, the sausage did not contribute to the mussels, was almost too salty. The ham in the Spaetzle overwhelmed the flavor. The Beignet were flavorless and dry. I liked my salads. The olives in the martini were kind of boring, not much of a blue cheese taste. It was not a horrible meal, but it was not worth the price.
I really enjoyed our evening at Belga. Definitely will add to our favorite places to return to. The food was delicious and service was attentive.
Belga is one of my go-to places - the food and service are always good. The restaurant can be a little loud, and Easter brunch was no exception. Overall I highly recommend it!
The food was fine, but it gets less and less Belgian every time we go there. It’s more accurate to say that the menu is now standard American/California cuisine with continental influence than anything else.
Plus they got rid of the sausage platter, which was one of their trademark dishes and a unique reason to go there.
We brought our dog and sat outside, the outdoor tables were well-serviced and we got everything we needed. Staff is lovely and accommodating, the food is fresh and well thought out. We had a wonderful brunch experience and will definitely return.
Consistently good service and very good food. Great for mid sized groups.
Noise level moderate-not. Easy sunday brunch, not crowded, still could hardly hear,music blaring-not from customers. Burnt bacon with scramble and bacon. Enough watery spinach to fill a field on the eggs bennie and english muffin not toated at all. Croque madame bread not toasted at all, but ham excellent. Waffle pretty good. Fries very good. Banana toast great. Service-meh. So many better options.
Belga is a good go-to place in the neighborhood you can count on good food, great service, and nice atmosphere.
Thank you very much Marla!
Our service was AWFUL, and the food was mediocre. Not worth the money.
Good good and drinks. Noisy but nice atmosphere
Everyone was about 19 years old.
Great decor; very good casual menu.
Noise level is very high at the entrance, but there are some quieter zones.
This was my first time at Belga. I went with a group of friends to enjoy some good food and have a good time with them. While the reservation, menu and all those pieces worked out fine, our server was not at all friendly.
1. She seated three of us and gave silverware only for two
2. Never came by to our table to check if everything was ok or we needed something. We literally had to look for her to get additional stuff.
3. My friend ordered a hot tea (green), the server came back after half hour with black tea saying they were out of green tea. Well, that's fine, at least she was considerate enough to get something. Secondly, when my friend asked for a cup of hot water, she got her another cup of tea which was just not required.
4. I specifically asked her to not put bacon on my flatbread, which clearly was not noted down & I got bacon.
30mins after she noticed that we were done, she came by to ask if we needed anything else. At the time of bringing the check she was in a totally opposite (happy and cheerful) mood (maybe because it was now time for tipping).
I hope it was just this server and not the rest of the staff.
The only downside was the saturday before St. Patrick's, the street and restaurant were definitely chaotic. There was significant noise because of all the revelers.
Always enjoy food and have great conversation while dining.
Erin is the hostess, she is so friendly and professional. The experience was lovely and is consistent. Thank you for being such a staple in our lunch and dinner out.
Belga was fantastic. Delicious food and great atmosphere.
Great food and drinks. Nice spot for bigger groups.
Great brunch. Welcoming staff. They were really accommodating about our stroller.
