Description: Taste of Belgium serves Belgian food with a twist. If it's not Belgian, we "Belgianize" it. We serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and one-of-a-kind weekend brunch. We have a full bar and a wide selection of Belgian beers on draft and in bottle. And we serve the absolute best waffles.

We stopped in the restaurant for an after dinner drink and almost wished we would have come here for dinner! We were seated quickly at the bar, able to watch the Bulls game and received excellent service. The food smelled delicious and the atmosphere was a nice blend of bar and restaurant. The place was well lit and not too... More

the food was pretty good. Definitely get the pretzels. They are known for their chicken and waffles. I got a salad which I didn't enjoy but I think I just chose the wrong thing as everyone else I was with liked their food. Wait staff was friendly and good.

This restaurant is one of the products of the gentrification of the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood on a street on which, just a few years ago, no respectable person would have ever ventured. On the weekend day I visited, the place was packed with people who seemed like they were there totally as much to be seen as to dine. The food... More

Me and the fam went in for Brunch on New Years day. They were very busy - probably one of the few places open! We went in at about 11:00 and were advised we would have a 45 min - 1 hour wait. We gave them our number - to text us when our table was ready. We went and... More

We stumbled across this place after exploring OTR on a Bengals game day. Needless to say, we had about a 30 minute wait. It was worth it! We loved the Belgian beer selection, and the food really was excellent. They also have a bakery area, where my wife found one of her favorites, macarons.

Went on a Sunday morning. Very busy...waited 20 minutes. The place is somewhat cramped. Service was excellent and the food was incredible. Never have I experienced waffles this tasty or unique. I ordered a McWaffle, which is an Egg McMuffin concept, except with waffles. Delicious. Not too pricey, either. Neat atmosphere. Make sure to stop here if in the area.

Dropped in here for a few drinks while we wanted on a table at Senate. Ended up getting an app of cheese (used sweet lambic) and pretzels. We thought it was delicous. Wife also liked that they had a sour on draft. After seeing this on Triple D we'll be back here for the food, apparently the food here is... More

We were advise of the 20 min. wait. We were excited and was waiting patiently. 2 tables became vacant. Hosts had 2 parties who came in after, be seated ahead of us. We were finally seated (without any apology) at the end of the restaurant right beside the Lavatories ( how conducive for a meal!) The server got our orders.... More

At 10 am on Sunday, it took us 30 minutes to get a table, but it was well worth the wait! Great food, superb coffee and fast, friendly, efficient service made this a highlight of our weekend in Cincy.
