Waterzooi Belgian Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Great food and service. It can get pretty loud so conversation can be a bit challenging at times. The mussel buckets are generously sized and always really fresh. Prices are reasonable yet a bit on the high side. It’s proved to be a good choice over the years.
I’ve been here many times. The food and service is excellent. The mussels are amazingly delicious. The only reasonable I gave it 4 stars overall is because they need to change their bread and butter service. Bread should be served warm and butter should be soft to spread. They serve cold bread and cold, solid butter.
We ordered two mussel pots and short ribs. The food came out almost immediately in 7-10 minutes. The mussels on top of the pots were not warm. Short ribs was also not warm at all. After eating for a few minutes, we noticed that all the mussel pots were getting served hot with steam coming out of the pots. It looks like we were served food that was either prepared ahead of time and left on the counter. Half through out meal, another waiter mistakenly brought over two pots thinking that we had ordered it. The waiter took them back. Not a good way to serve customer’s food and we were there to celebrate our daugjter’s birthday.
We partook of the special Long Island Restaurant Week promotion this restaurant was offering. We found the selections to be very good. The food is good and the portions were excellent. Making for a good value. Our server was outstanding.
Our only complaint is that the tables are very close together so there is no privacy and the noise might be a problem for some.
A group of friends and I went for Restaurant week. Food was quite good and the portion size was generous. Some restaurants shrink their portions for Restaurant week but not Waterzooi. I enjoyed my Mussel Pot and the Apple Cobbler was quite tasty. The server was very efficient. he was actually too efficient. We felt he was rushing us and he wasnt especially friendly..
Great food. Biggest pot of mussels I have ever seen and they were outstanding. Went for restaurant week and they certainly did not skimp on quality or quantity. Can't wait to go back and don't know why it took so long to get there in the first place. I definitely was missing out all this time.
Another awesome dinner. Service was excellent. I can't remember our servers name but he was a tall guy. We were sitting in the dining room and he was awesome !The dessert special chocolate cheesecake with brownie pieces was outstanding. Waterzooi never disappoints !
Although I was all set to order Belgian waffles as an entree (BTW: they only have one waffle in a dessert choice), I was very satisfied with my choice of mussels and Thai sauce. My friend got the paella mussels - both were fresh and servings were very generous. Potential for noisiness although we enjoyed a very nice dinng/service experience having dinner at 5:15p. Free parking and conveinet location in decent area. Neither of us had been here before - but we will be back!
