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 went on a Sunday morning, so very crowded - sat at the community table and had a great time. The waitstaff was average, could have been more attentive - but it was busy, so they get somewhat of a pass. The food however was amazing - the brunch burger i highly recommend. we also purchased a bag of 4... More

We were seated promptly, waiter was disconnected & so uninterested in us. He served 2 other tables right next to us and would bring coffee refills and never turn around to ask us. Best part was waffles now they were very good. We took a couple of packages to go for family at home. Need to work on service! We... More

The food was OK - the waffle was very good, but the service was awful - waiter seemed bored with us. After we ate, we went to the counter to get some sweets - couldn't get anyone to help us - finally left. The cookies looked really good, but good luck getting any.

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

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
