Food was delicious as always. And portions are HUGE. But service was abysmal. One waiter for the whole outdoor tent was clearly not enough, especially when one of the tables was a large party of 20. It was over 30 minutes before the waiter took our order. He knew it and apologized profusely.

Outdoor dining in the back is nice. Fondue was a little burned. The pacing of how the dishes came out was great.

The Lobster Bisque was OUTSTANDING! Big chunks of lobster made it the best I've ever had. Service was perfect and attentive.
Would have gone for 5 stars except the roasted lobster and frites was a bit dry and overcooked. The shrimp with Thai coconut sauce was very good, maybe a touch too much garlic.
We are definitely going back.

We ordered the mussel pot and the mussels came out awful. They were dried out and were impossible to pull them out of their shell. The sent a another batch after I complained that they were inedible. These were just as bad. They didn’t charge us for either batch but our appetites were ruined by then. We took our main course dish home since we couldn’t eat by then. We have been there several times before and have ordered the mussels that were very good. The chef should have seen what he was cooking and never have sent out these mussels. I don’t know if I will ever go back there again

Food was wonderful and the staff was very accommodating. We originally had outdoor reservations and decided to sit inside - they were able to meet our request and as a group of 6, we had a lovely afternoon at Waterzooi!

Service excellent
The tuna appetizer excellent
The lobster frites was not good at all
I didn’t want to tell the waiter he was very good but the lobster was not fresh and really had a foul taste
We support local small business and know there’s always an off day and understand but the lobster frites should be re-evaluated the salad was such large branches of watercress it wasn’t edible
Hope this helps
Thank you

It was a midweek business dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in town. Tonight was a bit different than the recent past. Staff issues? Service was extremely slow (dinner took 2.5 hrs) despite that fact that the staff were knowledgeable and excellent as usual. The steak au poivre was tasty but tough. The fondue lacked a sharp note and no hint of Kirschwasser or cognac. BUT the Thai moules were fantastic. It was also quite noisy. We could hear one another (in a nice booth) but some of the guests were a bit boisterous. The best news: the beer was cold and the varieties non-ending. We'll be back; this is one of the most popular restaurants in town, but we hope some of the deficiencies will be fixed.

Once again, we totally enjoyed dining at Waterzooi. This was our first time at the Pt Washington location.
Easy to make a reservation. Our sever and busboy were great! The mussel special was greatly enjoyed by everyone in our group.
Looking forward to our next visit!

What’s better than Belgian waffles at a Belgian restaurant?
Nothing! It was our first brunch (after many dinners) and won’t be our last. Everything was fantastic. If you’re lucky enough to get Carlos as your server, your experience will be memorable and not only because of the fantastic food.

While the food is excellent, they are understaffed, overbooked, and service was non-existant. Luckily the hostess was able to get us something to drink after 1/2 hour, and the manager was able to bring us our food. No bread, no water refills, no do you need anything, no do you want coffee, not even a server to ask. I would love to retry it when they can get staffing, and more organized.
