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.

Great brunch

We visited A Taste of Belgium on a Sunday morning, right after the restaurant appeared on the show Diner, Drive-ins, and Dives, so it was very busy. The host even told us that they had been jammed ever since the show was on DDD, but we only waited a few minutes. I had chicken and waffle meal and... read more

Don't bother getting anything but the chicken and waffles. Sweet, spicy, fresh, and generally amazing. But save room for their magnificent desserts, too. Beer selection at this location is mostly limited to actual Belgian beers.

Went here during a recent visit to Cincinnati. The fact that it was a full house on a severely snowy day was a hint to the quality of food and service. The atmosphere was warm and bustling yet relaxed. The service was excellent, our waiter was on point, our glasses were never less than half full for more than a... More

This is an authentic as it gets. The food is very true to what you find in a Brussels cafe. I love the chicken and waffles and the fries are fantastic. The place is always crowded so you have to get there early or leave your name and go explore OTR. The only downside to this place is the lack... More

I would never order chicken and waffles normally but at Taste of Belgium it is my favorite menu option. If you haven't tried this great place, you must. We always bring home a package of waffles too, great for dessert or breakfast.

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
