    The food was ok. My wife’s meal not so good(Trout), mine was good (Hanger Steak). Kids meal was good, ratatouille needed more seasoning and no salt was on the table outside. Overall it is a pretty good food and service in Downtown Laguna not perfect!

    We were so pleasantly surprised with Brussels Bistro. We got a lovely indoor table by the window, and all of the food was delicious. What made the evening wonderful was the staff. Our waiter Gabe was one of the kindest waiters we've ever had. He took a lot of extra time with my elderly mom, and acted like he didn't have anyone else in the room to go care for. The whole staff helped us up and down the stairs with the wheelchair. We had a wonderful evening.

    We had an early dinner at Brussels on a Tuesday. Happy to find that it’s all you can eat mussels night. It’s not just one style but 7 or 8 different ways of cooking mussels to choose from. You could try all eight but you might explode! It was also happy hour so we stayed off with $8 glasses of wine and a roasted Brussels sprout appetizer. My husband enjoyed the yellow curry, spicy tomato and simple butter sauce. He said all three types were delicious. They come with a fresh baguette and homemade fries served in a cup. My son had the trout almondene and I had the spinach salad with salmon. It was perfectly dressed and the Salmon was perfectly cooked. The service was excellent and we can’t wait to return.

    We were 4 here for the Tuesday AUCE mussels. The only time I’ve seen/had this was in Bordeaux France. Mussels were a very nice size. They present the mussels in a ‘pot’ with the sauce of your choice. So many to choose - each served with hot & crispy fries and a long tasty baguette for the table to share. That bread is key for dipping up the fabulous sauces. The favorite for our group was the green curry w coconut milk. The only negative is that we couldn’t eat as much as we had hoped because we were all stuffed! Tip: stir the plentiful sauce up and onto the mussels. Will go back!

    The muscles were good. The fries were cooked perfectly.  The only cons were we had to ask for water. The Mediterranean salad had this weird peanut sauce on it didn’t necessarily like it. It was too much dressing and vodka. Drink had a strange flavor to it, but that’s not really their fault. It’s just overall I think the food quality was good. Cats were delicious, high-quality food and just have to pick things and pay attention to the spices that are in the food to make sure you like it
