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!

    Taste of Belgium is pretty consistent in my experience. We were there at a strange time (too late for lunch and too early for dinner, 2:00 on a Sunday) so I expected everything to be fresh. Our server was very nice but slow to respond. We had two people order drinks and it was at least 15 minutes before they arrived--ordered when food order was placed and arrived after food. The food had all sat under the warmer for quite a long time without being brought to our table so nothing was hot. It was okay but not great. I'll give it another go but with my guard up.

    Not very Belgian anymore. Few crepes, no galettes, no carbonnade. Still have Frites and waffles and to die for desserts. Lot of hamburgers on the menu. Changedthe "hand-helds" too, not in ways I found attractive. Service was very good.
    Taste of Belgium - RookwoodResponded on February 18, 2024
    Thanks Beetle, we appreciate your feedback on the menu changes. We had to reduce the size of our menu. We are back to our roots and serving different menus at different times of day. Unfortunately, we no longer offer our galettes at dinner. I am sorry you feel we have become "less Belgian". The change in the menu layout may have contributed to that percepotion. Our carbonnades are still on the menu as "carbonnades poutine". We actually just improved the recipe and it's the best we have ever served! You can ask for more traditional presentation without the cheese curds. We have also moved our traditional Belgian meatballs to a shareable so more people get to try them as it is an authentic dish (it's my Mom's recipe). Jean-François Founder.

    The food was very good and the waitress was very nice but we ordered an appetizer, a salad and an entree and it was all brought to our table at once so hard to enjoy the experience. Need to work on timing but we will go back.

    This Taste of Belgium just never seems to put it all together. Service was fine last night (Madison did great) but the fries with our mussels were burnt bits of what we think were potatoes. I know this sounds small, but it’s not that hard to make good fries, particularly when it’s kind of a signature dish of your restaurant and surely one of your signature dishes. The Banks location has it all over the Rookwood location.

    ToB is not what it used to be…the place was virtually empty at 7:15pm on a Friday night. Despite the lack of customers, the server was in no hurry and didn’t even make it to our table until 15 minutes after we had been seated (though she walked right by at least twice without acknowledging we were there). The food was fine but the chicken had clearly been cooked well before we even put in our order and the frites were dry. Disappointing because this used to be one of our family’s favorite places.

    We were disappointed with our table- We were right by the plating station and there was lots of work happening there. We were also not aware that the Taste of Belgium was a cashless business. It was posted on the door but we did not pay attention to it. I had cash with me but no credit cards. Luckily I was with friends who paid my bill.

    The food was half and half. Part of my family really likes goetta. Apparently it was too dry. Also, I feel like they should make the waffles available with no sugar on top, but maybe they do and I just didn’t ask. The only saving grace for me was that the turkey sausages were on point. Delicious. And the cappuccinos were excellent.

    Service was incredibly attentive & timely. Food & drinks not great. I get beers are their specialty; however wine (Cab) was terrible. Food - frites, burger, crepe for our party - was meh. Food used to be so good here, quality has definitely gone downhill. :(

    We were seated at a table for 2 on the other side of check in station when you enter the restaurant. It was breezy and cold seated there because the door was opening constantly with people coming it to facility. I would not suggest that seat to anyone.

    Met someone there for a breakfast meeting. Beautiful place with lots of tables! I was shocked at how easy it was to park because in the late afternoons and evenings, that area typically packed. Will keep in mind especially for morning gathering spot. Colleague I was meeting actually pointed out the tables in the back that are a little more private even so will keep in mind for future needs.

    Terrific Sunday brunch for our group. Our server was outstanding and did such a great job with refilling sodas without being asked, keeping us well supplied with an appetizer while we waited for the rest of our party to arrive, etc. The salmon crepe was delicious, and we also loved the pretzel bier appetizer as a shareable snack before the main course.

    The staff were great, the food was good, the value was fine, but the noise was very high. We were a table of 4, we sat in the back and it was hard to hear each other over the noise. "Energetic" is the nicest way to describe the noise level, hectic, LOUD, is how I would describe it. Next time, if we go back, we will likely try to sit outside.

    Server was very nice but had to ask for refills when it was obvious. Asked for ketchup when I ordered, didn’t come. Server, or any, wasn’t around after order was delivered to fix it. Frites weren’t very hot. Very pricey for the total experience, & I don’t mind paying for quality.

    Girls’ night out! I came late and did not catch our server’s name- no tag- and she was fabulous🤩 Star service and answered all questions. Pretzels were more like knotted dinner rolls and bier cheese was mildly cheesy at best. Belgian burger with Impossible was tasty. Had fun and nice atmosphere!

    Servers and staff at the Rookwood ToB were very attentive and considerate. Had a mistake on my order and the server was able to get it corrected extremely quick. Mimosas were on point as well.
