Reviewed January 2, 2024

I read the reviews and decided to reserve a table for dinner for my birthday. The menu was disappointing, to be more precise: there is almost no choice! We are not talking about a festive dinner at all. The order was like a takeaway from...a supermarket. We've been waiting for dessert for ages. There was no attention from the staff, only after loud indignation dessert was brought and again I had to go and pay myself so as not to sit waiting for another hour. I paid 100 euros for a very modest and in no way restaurant-quality dinner. No apologies from the staff, they didn't even say goodbye.More

Although the venue itself and the quality of the food itself is quite good, restricting the choice of dishes so drastically (4 main courses: steak, chicken, salmon, or burger) is a practice that should be discontinued. It does not inspire for a return visit. Neither...does the serving of cold red wine that clearly should be served at room temperature.More

The setting is cosy and the food is yummy. The menu is limited but this guarantees the freshness. Nice colours on the plates, fine taste in the mouth. Waiter did a charming job. However, the waiting for the bill was too long. A perfect evening...all together.More

Excellent food with an refined menu carefully elaborated . I tried a bit of everything but the most impressive was the cured Mackerel with a delicious Radish gazpacho and apple wasabi seasoning. It’s so delicate and the flavour go together extremely well. I also found...the fire seared cod particularly flavoursome , it was with a mussels White Sea foam that was not melting away even after some time ! Impressive ! Desert was a mango mouse on a financier base , I thought the earl grey and dehydrated raspberries on top gave a wonderful sour and bitter addition to the dish. I had a wonderful experience !More

Excellent location, food and service. It is not a too pricey restaurant. Very cool drinks. We went there for a romantic dinner and the staff cared a lot about us

Visited this restaurant recently. The ambience was very good. Great lighting. We ordered the Trio Bao and the Lebanese Bread with beetroot dip. The starters were very flavorful. For main course we ordered the "Sushi with grilled Eel" and "Grilled Seabass with Thai spices". This...was very disappointing. The sushi was not Sushi. It was frozen rice with tiny bit of Eel and a slice of Beetroot. The taste was not good at all. Please avoid this completely. The Grilled Seabass was OK. Mild flavors but with Thai spices we were expecting a bit more punch to it. The deserts were very good. Overall, average food experience but good ambience.More

I enjoyed the food and staff were friendly. There were lovely sitting spots where you could look over the park whilst eating.

Very nice interior, great view over the park and the dishes and service is excellent. A must-try is their signature dish: pidgeon. Well presented with seasonal vegetables and a surprise portion of foie gras. We’ll come again. Very soon.

We had a lovely meal at The Iris. One of our party was vegetarian and the menu had lots of options. Delicious cocktails to start, food was fabulous, I had tempura shrimp then lobster tabouleh. Great wine list, we had the pouilly-fume which was lovely...and not overpriced. Our waiter was friendly and helpful, service was on point. Decor lovely and chairs comfy. Would definitely recommend and revisit. Couldn't fault it ( and I'm hard to please!) haMore

The Iris is the new place to be in Uptown Brussels. The interior design is cozy and welcoming. The service is friendly and attentive. The food is delicious. I would definitely recommend you try it when in Brussels.
