Great location in downtown Laguna Beach. Fun and unique atmosphere inside, with an outdoor patio available as well.
Table was ready on time. Server came to our table immediately. Food came out in a timely fashion and was delicious. Happy, upbeat vibe. Perfect dinner before a night at the Pageant of the Masters.
I love this restaurant!!!! Really great food, service and atmosphere! Make you feel like you are in Brussels!
Plenty of staff, but not polished. Patio outside with live guitar pleasant. Our first courses were brought out, and we had barely started when the entree arrived. French onion soup of the creamy variety was ok, ceasar salad ok, beef bourginon underwhelming. Much touted fries nothing special.
Not worth the money. Not really Belgian other than few menu items and beers.
Brussels always leaves you more than satisfied. The menu is european with a focus on, you guessed it, Belgian food. The table enjoyed a nice portion of 1lb of mussels Mariniere style which were very tasty and well done. If you have ever been to Belgium, these wont disappoint and they are of course accompanied with French fries. They have in the past had a mustard crusted lamb shank as a special which is AMAZING, but alas it was not on the menu so I went with the beef bourguignon with mashed potatoes and it too was really good! The kids had a good meat ball and pasta and everyone at the table was satisfied. Its a casual place with good service and nice value for your money. I highly recommend this place as I have come back several times over the years.
Like all the beachtown areas, parking is an issue....note, the restaurant resides within the blocked off street, so navigation is tricky! Outside of that, the patio set up was nice and dogs of any size and breed are welcomed. They have an extensive choosing of mussels, so if a fan, that's your place! We each got different items, and they were all tasty, but a bit on a salty side......lots of liquids after and during the day. The restaurant relies more on ordering online, but also has wait-staff available. The service, initially was slow, but once we finally got our drinks, they seemed more attentive. All in all, I would go again and would recommend a dining experience!
The servers were outstanding, knew the menu and were very attentive. The mushroom soup was very tasty, the side of chicken was so dry, it splintered and the spinach, pretty basic. The Brussels sprouts appetizer were excellent. They’ve made the best of the Covid situation and added some flair to the street side dining.
Good food - mussels and fries were fabulous. My creamy chicken was tasty & the pastry was flaky and light. Other 2 guests ordered the filet which came out over cooked (one order medium rare and the other medium well, and they came out medium and well done). Awesome selection of beer.
Mussels are exceptional and go very well with a great Belgian beer
I came to this restaurant from Los Angeles because it was very good a year and a half ago. I'm happy they closed off Forrest for outdoor dining. The restaurant follows all guidelines. Last time I had a hamburger, and this time I decided to try the Beef Bourguignon. Unfortunately it was incredibly salty. I still like this restaurant when I go to Laguna Beach!!
The vibe here continues to be amazing! Great European fare, friendly service, a great selection of Belgian ales and French wine.
Dinner was good, but sat inside by a couple with a dog and guests came and went without masks. Disappointed health codes weren't followed.
Great place to eat service was FANTASTIC our waiter was friendly and attentive to the needs to are group. Recommended dishes to are vegetarian friend
Most definitely will returned and recommend Brussels bistro.

Food was delicious!! The onion soup was delicate and delicious. The salmon and beef stew was amazingly flavorful.
Excellent all the way through! Beef Stew was the best I’ve ever had! Service was excellent!
Always the best! Excellent food, cocktails and of course Belgian beers. The burger is to die for! Staff are wonderful too
Very nice restaurant and outdoor seating . The servers are friendly, professional and helpful. The location is amazing and the ambience is charming .
Love the food and service
Showed up for our Reservation. But they we closed do to COVID. That should have turned off there reservations on OT. Anyways, sorry the Government closed them down. Not really there fault. Free small business!
We had reservations and came from out of town, only to arrive, look for parking, pay for parking, and realize the restaurant was closed. Next time be courteous enough to cancel your reservations?
Went for lunch before the state shut down outdoor dining. The food and service were wonderful. We will be back when they reopen.
Always great mussels !!!
Best Beef Bourguignon I’ve ever had!
Love this place. Dining is outdoor due to COVID. Food fantastic as always. Happy hour only a few drink specials (understandable in the present environment). Was able to make a reservation several days in advance.
My Friday night dining experience was excellent. The hostess was organized and friendly. The manager was visible and seemed directive. Our server was timely in order taking and payment completion.. The roasted Brussels sprouts were tasty and looked appetizing. I would pick Brussels Bistro out of the restaurants on Forest Ave next time for sure! Thank you.
great food ! beers are +++ We love this places for years from Long Beach !
All was good. The outdoor seating arrangements are comfortable and safe. It was all very nice.
A perfect night!!!
They are doing a wonderful job in spite of all the hospitality challenges.
Excellent food and service!
The food was great and the waiter made the entire experience even more enjoyable!
Always a gem, and love the flexibility with outdoor seating!
The food is always great at Brussels and I love going downstairs during the colder months as it feels so cozy. Sitting out on the street on Saturday night was another great experience! The parade of people and the music up the street added to the fun. The wait staff has to run up and down the stairs and run across the street to serve people, so they are putting in double duty in effort. Please remember them when you tip!
Didn't know what to expect but was very happy when I saw how organized the whole staff was. Code bars on the table made it easy to pull up the menu. Food was beyond wonderful and staff very friendly.
The waiter wasn't nice. He wouldn't even let me get a different dressing for the salad. I would recommend it to a friend just to have a different waiter as the food was good.
