Wonderful first visit on a Saturday evening. Interesting, diverse menu with a good selection of wines by the glass, draft and unique bottled beers. While the main dishes looked excellent, we dined on small plates -- croquettes, pate, escargot and mussels. Felt it was a very good value. Will be back!

We ordered small plates and every dish was excellent—good portions, well-presented, tasty. Gin bowls were great. Nice selection of wines by the glass. Perfect bistro experience!

We were visiting Norwalk and staying nearby. We had such a great time we came back again the next night. A very special place. We’ll make it a regular spot when he move to Norwalk later this year.

We sat at bar. Jamie was an excellent bartender and server with a great personality. The mussels were outstanding only to be outdone by the pate which was outdone by the profiteroles ! The Rose was delicious.
Can’t wait to return

I came home to visit my mom and we went here on a whim, we were both blown away by the quality of the food and the cocktails. Feels like a place that could become the next big thing in SONO - get in while you can.

If you like the robust flavors and hearty portions of a French bistro this place is for you! We love escargot and Bruxelles Bistro's are unique and most flavorful. The special was a veal stew and it was great. Service/server was very nice and on top of it. Can't wait to go back and try the Beef Bourguignon!

Enjoyed a Sunday brunch at this restaurant. The bellini and Lillet cocktails were ideal brunch beverages- both very refreshing and tasty. My friend ordered the crepe which she enjoyed and I ordered the croissant. Quality ingredients prepared well. Ambiance is very chic and industrial feel. Would recommend for brunch and will be back to try dinner soon!

Was disappointed as we went for the first time for dinner and was amazing. Brunch was cold, service rushed and ambience not same as dinner time. Hungarian goulash soup was watered down - tasty but not same as normal. Poached eggs were great but everything around it - Hollandaise sauce came out ice cold. No rhythm to place today.

Restaurant decor is unusual and there are multiple rooms. Nicely spaced tables so we felt comfortable. We came for Easter brunch and were looking forward to trying some of the great items on the menu. Our waitress was very snarky and tried to rush us to order. One of us had just sat down after dropping off the rest of our party and finding a parking space. We told the waitress that we weren't ready to order food, just our beverages while we looked at the menu. After that she was incredibly rude. At first we thought that was her personality until she started to fawn all over the next table. And she tried to rush us out by leaving the check without asking if we wanted any coffee or tea. She was also insistent and rather not nice when we wanted something on the side instead of on the entree and one of us asked her to hold an ingredient (which was not a big deal). The food was good. We had the french omelettes and belgian waffles. Interesting that the ingredients that are typically inside the omelette come in a copper dish on the side. And the waffle is basically covered with creme anglaise and whipped cream. Rather rich but tasty. Had to ask for jam for the toast. Maybe we will come back and get a different server.

Nice Brunch -- the food is good, steak frite up to par and well presented. Service was fine, not particularly great but OK for lunch I guess. I'd go back to try more specials.

We had a very nice Easter brunch here with friends. The service was a little slow but it was very busy! The food was great and authentic. Loved the decor and overall feel. Felt it was very good values for money. Based on brunch we can’t wait to go back and try their dinner menu!

We’ve been to Bruxelles several times. Always delicious. The Thursday special of chicken paprika’s is amazing and a very generous portion. The hamburger was at medium rare perfection. Great service too. I definitely recommend!

Worst food I have eaten in a very long time. The decor looked like a brothel. The waitress was awful, took for ever to get us sparkling wine that had no bubbles...then forgot to come back to get our dinner order :-( When the meal finally came Fillet minion was not fillet but a cheaper cut (ordered rare it came medium), french fries were not even good. Fish smelled bad/ammonia odor, and was uneatable! Red wine was undrinkable. Very expensive for what they serve. I was so excited to go there & so never going back. The only thing that I must give them credit for was good bread and coffee...but that doesn't make a restaurant. OpenTable should take them off the list. No one should eat like that…

My husband and I went to Bruxelles Saturday evening for dinner. The food was amazing. We enjoyed the entire experience so much we went back the next day to try brunch. The basket of pastries with small cups with butter, jams and chocolate put a smile on our face. We love dining out and many times some dishes are delicious while others are so so. Each course is delicious and worth the wait while it is being cooked from scratch. Highly recommend.
