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.

This is a chunk of breakfast heaven! I had the "McWaffle".........!!!!!!!! I'm sure you cannot order anything here that is not scrumptious! This is one of those places where you think, " if I ate like this everyday......" We had a 35 min. wait at around 11a.m. on a Saturday. Spent it (literally!) in the shop across the street shopping....."Mica"... More

I went for lunch and ordered the mussels. While the tomato-based broth was delicious the mussels were quite small. Really small. As for the waffle, so highly praised on Diners Drives in and Dives, terrible. The taste was good but the texture was something like a half-baked scone. Very, very doughy. I was totally stunned. Will say the burgers looked... More

Visited this place with friends the very next morning after watching it on Guy Fierri/Food Network. And it was a blessing we just happen to be watching that channel that night. The waffles are amazing, to the point where you do not need to add a thing to them. Seriously, no syrup, no toppings and they are delicious. I happen... More

Saw this restaurant on Triple D and when I went to Cincinnati on business had to try it. I was not disappointed. The atmosphere was great. Had the McWaffle. It was very good. Bought some waffles to bring home. I would definitely recommend stopping by if in the area.

Ate lunch here two times during my trip. Had a turkey waffle sandwich the first time. Small Belgian waffles as cut in half and used as the bread for the sandwich. Mmmm. The next time, I also ate lunch and had the 'Nati crepe filled with egg, roasted peppers and finely ground pork. Added the daily special of smashed potatoes... More

From breakfast to a late night snack you really cannot go wrong with anything on the menu but chicken and waffles are hard to pass up.

We were in Cincinnati for Oktorbestfest. By Sunday morning we were ready for something other than beer and brats. Wow! We did pick a great place for brunch. The Mimosa's were killer. The Waffle n' Chic and Brunch Burger were outstanding. The wait staff could not have been better, They seemed to really enjoy what they were doing. We will... More

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
