Belgian
Taste of Belgium is a restaurant group of Belgian-inspired eateries. We take traditional Belgian recipes and we twist them; we take American classics and we Belgianize them. We believe elegant cuisine can be served with a down-to-earth attitude and humble foods can be served elegantly. We take the food we create and the service we provide very seriously, but not ourselves. Waffles, Chicken, Beer. Eat Like a Belgian, Drink Like a Belgian, Live Like a Belgian!

    My granddaughter and I were in Cincinnati for a musical performance and I made a reservation with Taste of Belgium prior to the performance. We were seated next to the window and enjoyed people watching as we ate. I ordered the ham and Gruyère Galette and my granddaughter had the strawberries and cream waffle. Both were delicious! I had a featured beer, Kwaremont, with my meal and it was very tasty. My only negative comment is that the head was quite large, which lowered the level of my drink noticeably. Our server, Maggie, was very friendly, helpful and attentive. We were served in a timely manner and she checked back with us often. Thank you Taste of Belgium for a very pleasant pre-concert experience.

    I need to be GF so i was a little reticent about coming here. The staff was great in answering my questions, going in back to ask the cooks about a particular entree item. The food was very good…a little on the expensive side, but the important part was that it was good and an appropriate amount. Our server was very good and attentive. The music was a little loud but not enough to be intrusive and we could converse without raising our voices. I recommend this “Taste of Belgium”!

    This is a treasured find that we will return to when visiting Cincy! Not a single bite was less than excellent. I must also say that our waitress was wonderfully pleasant, engaging, knowledgeable and present without being intrusive which is a rare combination. We started with the Baked Brie and toasted sourdough which was delicious. My wife loved the Belgian Meatballs. I tried a sample of the gravy and Belgian potato mash that came with her meal and could have been satisfied with a meal of just that it was so good! I had their Beltucky Hot Brown and didn't leave a crumb on the plate! Just Wow! A wonderful street level European vibe restaurant that was comforting and warming to the heart. They also have a great beer and wine list.

    This was one of the most disappointing restaurant experiences we've had in recent memory. First and most importantly, the food was way below average: the Marseille mussels were flavorless (the celery in the dish was essentially raw); the loaded fries appetizer was "meh" and mushy, and the waffles were SO DENSE and just plain not good. Also, the ambiance was less than desirable, in large part due to a dirty dining room — food on the floor around our table, unbussed tables despite no crowd, etc. Oh, and there was no soap in the bathroom. However, our server was friendly, and I did enjoy the Brussel sprouts and my Belgium beer.

    Fries taste like Burger King. Bring back the original. The grilled chicken sandwich was extremely dry, no taste. Way better with Gouda instead on bland cheddar. So disappointed. I eat lunch here every week…time to find a new place…way to pricey for a meal that is below average quality.

    This was our 2nd time eating here before an FCC game. The first was a better experience. The beer I ordered was semi-cold at best. We both got the Waffles and Chicken, which was good but the chicken was drowned in hot sauce, I like the sauce but this was over the top. The last time we were here our food came out quickly this time it took a while but we still had plenty of time to make the game. Getting refills on drinks is always a challenge, plan ahead if possible. Overall, it's a great place to stop and eat.

    Recent menu changes are disappointing, especially the downgrade in Frites, they are now fast food type French Fries. The menu prices for the items that stayed on the menu went up significantly. Sad to see as ToB in OTR was one of our favorites for a meal before FCC matches, but will look to go elsewhere now as lesser quality food at a higher price is not what we expected.

    Quickly seated for our reservation. Not rushed to order. Enjoyed my ‘Nati crepe. Observant server— we were lunching with friends we hadn’t seen in a long time, so there was a lot of chatting. Fortunately there were plenty of open tables so we were comfortable taking our time. We always enjoy our meals at ToB

    Sunday morning brunch…Took a big tumble as I walked toward the hostess stand . Small poorly marked step, unable to distinguish from wood flooring. Really hit the floor hard. Hostess stood in shock. 2 young men helped me to my feet. Escorted to our table… no one from management came to see how I was. Unfortunately holiday weekend but on Tuesday had To go to an orthopedic surgeon at ortho- cincy. Now I’m in a boot for the next several weeks. My arm, shoulder and back are bruised and sore. No matter how good the food may be and how lovely and energetic the atmosphere- if the space is not safe all else is negated. Dangerous and Staff more concerned about profits than the safety and well being of a patron- even when they witness them fall. So disappointed.

    Place was average. Went on a Sunday for brunch, I had expectation that there would be lots of options but it was just normal kind of menu. The omelet was average but the banana nutella waffle was better than I thought it'd be. Place wasn't bad or fabulous, to me just middle of the road.
