I really want to like Taste of Belgium more, but I've gone several times now and just have not been terribly impressed. The food is decent, but not spectacular. Their french macarons are overpriced for the size, and the waffles are dry. The sauce for the chicken and waffles helps redeem them a bit though. It's a cool space, and... More

For a restaurant that gets such rave reviews you would think they could have clean restrooms. Or, how about clean menus? Maybe they could have people answering their phones who know when they stop serving breakfast. We got dirty restrooms, dirty paper menus and we were told we could get breakfast, it found that they stopped serving breakfast at 10:30.... More

trendy place that is one of the bigger ones in OTR, so always able to get a table even while the other hot spots are very full. Often overlooked as its one of the older ones in Gateway quarter, food is excellent - rich waffles (chicken & waffle is great), excellent mussels, and an outstanding collection of belgian ales. reasonable...

We were sat at the chef's table (which was a fun experience in itself). Two of us had the amazing waffle burger (you should get this!) and the other had the Nati' crepe. The crepe was pretty good; a little too cheesy/gooey for my taste, but still good. The bloody Mary's were fantastic as well. Just spicy enough! The bill... More

This restaurant has a great new, hip vibe in downtown Over the Rhine. The area is very cool & a lot of small restaurants and shops are popping up around this place. Their food is pretty good, especially the french fries! The wait staff was extremely friendly and offered some suggestions of other new, local places to check out!

I love Taste of Belgium, and that's saying something since I'm actually not much of a waffle(r), :-) , but I love this place. They have a few alternatives for vegetarians that are excellent AND their mimosas are wonderful. Saturday or Sunday morning for brunch on the patio is great! I took Yogi to Washington Park's dog park only a... More

The chicken and waffles is what brought us into this place for the first time. I'm not a fan of meat on the bone, so when I discovered their version was a boneless chicken breast I figured I had to try it. This dish is scrumptious! The chicken is lightly breaded, and is juicy and declious. It's served over a... More

This is a very trendy restaurant. It is small so be prepared! The food and excellent service was worth being squished. There are tables outside if you like people watching...or you can sit at the bar and watch them cook your meal.
