The classic Belgian brasserie meets California sensibility at Belga. Inspired by mainstays of Belgian cuisine (equal parts Belgian, French, and German ingredients and dishes), Belga’s menu encompasses a variety of ingredients and staple dishes found from along the Belgian countryside to its seashore; Our interpretation of the Belgian brasserie means beer and cuisine are intertwined on the menu, yielding a collection of lighter fare and a sampling of heartier, comforting dishes (think wood-fired sausages and mussels-frites, --all designed to be shared). In keeping with Belgian tradition, Belga incorporates Northern California’s practice of local sourcing and working with the freshest of ingredients.

We like the wine list, beers and beverages a lot. The service is really super, but the menu is losing its luster a bit for us. We miss the sausages a lot.

The acoustics were terrible. Restaurant needs to do something about it. Had to shout across 2 persons table to get heard. Somewhat disappointed. Food very average at $$ prices. Won't mind paying these prices if food was a notch better.

Belga is one of my go-to’s when I’m in the Marina. Great for lunch (if you can grab a seat outside, even better) or meeting up for drinks after work. Has some unique options (I recommend the falafel) and service has always been excellent.

Thank you to the wonderful Belga team for making my best friends’ birthdays and an engagement celebration so special! The staff and amazing, the food was great and the wine was well worth it. This is my second time for a special occasion and I’ll definitely be back again.

The most outstanding aspect of our experience was the European vibe of the restaurant - floor to ceiling windows that open to the street, fireplace, wood floors and wallpaper. The food was fine, our table found the burgers salty but otherwise thought the food was good. Very well priced.

Belga is awesome, especially if its a gorgeous day and you can request the outdoor picnic tables (or snag one!). Fun for groups and great brunch & brunch drinks. Also dog friendly! <3

Loved that they had Fieldwork sour beer on tap! Burger was burnt. Fries were just okay. Quite loud at 8:30-9:30pm with lots of people the bar area on a Saturday night. Quieted down after that as people left. I would go back for drinks but not food.

Belga's decor is very warm and inviting. The food was solid and decently priced. The whitbier mussels were group's favorite, and the hamburger was solid too. We finished off with beignets and waffles. The creme fraiche sauce with the beignets was the highlight. Will definitely be back.

We ordered the beer week beer pairing. Good idea but the beer was brought out at odd times - either way too early or late, not paired with the food. They were busy but then don’t offer food/beverage pairings. We also had liquid in our plates from eating and when we asked for new plates the one guy said it wasn’t his job and begrudgingly started to clear our entire table.

I was here for the SF Restaurant Week lunch special and it was a great way to introduce me to Belga. What a beautiful, comfortable and elegant space. My celery soup was complex. I do it an injustice to call it just "celery soup". The menu described it better. The chicken paillard was perfectly cooked on a grill and had a smokey and savory taste over perfectly tender kale and potatoes. I splurged to get the beignets -- best I've ever had with a wonderfully thick and tart cream on the side. I'd return any time.

Although the food was good, it took it more than 30 minutes for the appetizers to appear at the table in less than half empty restaurant. The waiter was more involved in the wrapping utensils in napkins than serving the table. Other waiters were no better, gathering in small groups in different spots and chatting. Our waiter forgot about one order and had to be reminded. He brought the bill that was not matching four items of happy hour menu price ($15 more). The restaurant also charges shameless "SF mandated" fee.

The SF Restuarnt Week luncheon was delicious; served with a small green salad and the main course, chicken paillard on a bed of spinach, and tomatoes with some juice. $15 prixe fixe.

Salad Nicoise was fresh and well presented. Well Worth the try.

Will go back and try brunch on the weekend. Good sample of beers and plenty of other items to accompany.

A good find.

Belga is a happy newcomer to the neighborhood. They serve good Belgian cuisine, more resembling French food than Belgium's heavier fare. Chicken is fantastic, as is their really good value NY steak frites. Fries are the thicker variety (as in Belgium) but are served crisp and are delicious. We also loved the mashed pea/avocado toast as an appetizer. Belga is not "cheap," but it's a better than average in the 2 dollar sign category. We'll be back again and again!

The food was good - not great. We really enjoyed the steak frites. The biggest problem with Belga is how loud it was. That is the main reason I won't return.

So disappointed at the changes . . . I had been here three times before when it truly was a Belgian-inspired place with a great selection of Belgians on tap, and the food was Belgian/French and they had the oh-my-god Belgian beer float sampler (3 Belgian beers paired with 3 Humphrey Slocombe ice cream flavors . . . insanely good). Sadly, when we went on New Year's Day they had several IPAs on tap (like every other CA bar--BOO!!) but only a handful of Belgian beers, and no tripels for me. :( The waitress was nice but did not seem to know anything about Belgian beers. The food was okay, frites with 3 sauces are still there at least, but the menu is clearly going Mediterranean/mid-eastern now, with pita bread and hummus and the like. The hubby's duck sausage was good, as were the frites, but I was not impressed with the rest of the food, and I was positively depressed to hear that they had stopped doing the beer float sampler--that is what I came all the way out from Lafayette for!! So sad and not going back; will stick to Monk's Kettle and Trappist for my Belgians. P.S. Note to owners: the name of the place is BELGA! Bring Belgium back!

NYE dinner started off nicely. Good atmosphere. Waited for like 25 min to order. Late and missing starters, 1 soup came 20 min before other starters. Waiter kept forgetting stuff. Charged for stuff we didn’t receive. Manager promised a refund after the visit. Never got one.

Third time at Belga, won’t be back. Service simply did not exist-took forever to order drinks and food. They were out of steak in a Wednesday night for the steak frites-one a small handful of entree’s. Several of us had the chicken and it was so salty none of us could eat it. By the time we could find an employee to report the issue we no longer cared. Absolutely terrible

Had been there for dinner and loved it. This time we went for Brunch. Some items were delicious (avocado toast, kale salad) and others were disappointing (schnitzel was over fried and fatty). Would be awesome to have the mussels on the brunch menu. We were outside and service was also really slow. But she was nice and accommodating.
