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.

A must do in Cincinatti

In town as a guest, my friends took me here on Sunday at 11am. The wait was 45 minutes, except that we found seats at the bar after 20 minutes. This place takes your cell number when you check in, so you can take a walk while you wait rather than have to have a pager or stand directly outside.... read more

We came here for lunch on the recommendation of someone who lives in Cincinnati, and we were favorably impressed with the food, the service, and the atmosphere. We had chicken and waffles, which was delicious. Our server struck the right balance between being attentive and not being intrusive. The atmosphere is very pleasant. Highly recommended.

We stopped here after seeing a play at the theater next door. It was crowded but we took spots at the bar for immediate seating. The bartender was very pleasant and helpful for first time visitors. The beer was great and snacks delicious. We are anxious to return to try a full dinner.

My SIL raved about this restaurant and I was willing to try it, but was never a huge waffle fan. I had "thought" I'd tried Belgian waffles before, but clearly I had not. This place knows how to make the most AMAZING Belgian waffles ever! I have no idea what is in them, but a bag of four (to go!)... More

My daughter, who was studying at the Art Academy nearby, insisted that we try this place for brunch one morning. It has ruined Chicken and Waffles for me elsewhere. So far, no equal ... not even close. The slightly spicy maple syrup glaze and syrup ... simple and awesome. Also, still my best Bloody Mary. Thanks.

Three of us visited Taste on a Saturday morning about 9 AM. Seating was immediate and the service was good. Two of us had the Belgium waffles and I had the "hash." The waffles were good, but small. The "hash" was mostly french fries with a small scoop of "hash" (and an egg) on top. The prices were reasonable. Overall,... More

I've been hearing a lot from family about how awesome Taste of Belgium is so we had to try it out. The waffles are ridiculous!! They are so hot and crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside!! Mouth-watering delicious! Highly recommend getting them fresh even though they sell the 4 pack to take home.

Delicious Belgian waffles and good coffee. I got mine with lemon curd and lavender sugar, which was an option listed for crepes that I asked if I could get on the waffle - yum! I have to say that the waffles are extremely rich and heavy - with the toppings I got even more so. Just make sure that you... More

This place is very cool. The location is right in the center of the revitalized section of OTR. The food is fantastic. This location is very small though so prepared for a wait. No worries though because there are great shops to check out while you wait. Definitely try it.
