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!

    I used to love your crepes but quality really gone down.It was thick, cold and had more agrula on it than brie and ham as well as the brie not even being melted.I used to love the fig and pig but no more.Also the harvest salad had hardly anything in it and was way over priced.You need to improve your quality control.Such a disappointment the last 2 times I ate at Rookwood in the last mont and I will not be returning.

    Service desultory, prices high end of moderate, then they add a 9% inflation charge. The food was excellent. But there are plenty of other places that serve decent food at decent prices.

    Unfortunately, this location was out of a LOT of menu items. Their nitrogen was also not working so you couldn’t order any beer on tap. They were also out of a lot of ingredients for mixed drinks. Very disappointing compared to my first experience at the original location.

    I chose Taste of Belgium Rookwood for my birthday dinner with my family. The food was good. The waiter seemed bitter whenever we needed anything. One member of our party was served their meal at least 10 minutes after the rest of us. It looked like they were under-staffed.

    My only complaint is that I was cold the entire time I was inside the restaurant and I even had a winter coat on! My seat was on the other side of the front desk area. Every time the entry door was opened I felt a gust of cold wind. Our server did pull the red curtain but that did not help as the cold came underneath the curtain.

    There was a lot of garbage on the floor under our table. Service was ok, the waitress took 10 minutes before telling my wife they were out of the beer she ordered, then took another 10 minutes before bringing her replacement selection. Food was delicious as expected. The noise level was very loud, but as expected for a Saturday evening

    we were told that the fries are cooked in duck fat, which is not a vegetarian friendly method. subsequently the manager told me that this is changing, and the fries will be cooked in vegetable oil on the new menu. make sure you ask before you eat.

    Freezing cold inside at 8:30. Implies that nobody came in and turned up the heat on time. Frigid cold draft caused food and beverage choices; omelet, coffee, to be tepid as well. Good service, although the waiter appeared late for work, and the hostess started us off. Not an abnormal handoff, except that the waiter said, "I will be taking over for X. "

    First visit and was interested in the menu. Would go again with different expecations on food. For dinner, more of a dessert than food for the kids. Chicken was overcooked and dry. Server asked kids about additional sides without making it clear it was an additional cost to them or the parents.

    Came specifically for mussels only to be told they weren't in stock until Thursday. As I was with others and we had limited time to eat, I ordered something else and then was shocked to see a "supply chain" charge on the bill. Very bad form that I have shared with others. Our waitress was great, think her name was Emily.
