First off, I'm not sure how I missed not writing a review on Taste of Belgium. My wife and I have been eating at the Last of Belgium since they have opened up. We love to eat here. When we first started eating at the OTR location, the other two locations in Cincinnati never existed and the wait was always... More

This was my first experience there. It was busy but the food and the staff were great! I had the chicken and waffles (the sauce that comes with it/on it is spicy) and a small leaf salad. I have been trying to get my boyfriend there but the timing just hasn't happened it! .

This place was amazing. I was with two others and we all couldn't stop raving about our entrees. I got the Ham & Brie and wow was I delighted! So much flavor and so unique to have it between two waffles! The candied orange and chocolate latte was also a hit! Very rich and super tasty as well. Everything was... More

Stumbled on this place completely by accident when another option was too busy. What a find. We have a waffle truck at home run by a Belgium native. Always thought that was the best waffle I would ever have--these may be better. Have a nice crunch to them, and when paired with the chicken to make chicken and waffles...well, I've... More

The TOB in the GE building was buzzing before the Reds game. My daughter had the strawberry waffles and really liked them. I tried the local dish called Goetta which is blend of pork, oatmeal and spices. It was served on a huge bed of perfect fries with two eggs over easy and peppers and onions. It was filling, well...

Casual fun place to eat. Food is good but not high end more of a pub like menu. It can be enjoyed with family, friends or as a couple.

Taste of Belgium is good and it is a Cincinnati favorite. However, we have experienced many other similar priced restaurants that we like better. They are becoming a chain by opening more locations and that affects attention to detail. Most often this results in ingredients being prepared offsite and that affects quality.

I have never liked waffles until I ate here! OMG! So good and the chicken is by far the best chicken we have ever had. Highly recommend this place.

Taste of Belgium was our choice because it was close to our Cincinnati destination and certainly delivered on the promise of outstanding waffles! After much deliberation over the menu items, all three of us opted for the Chicken & Waffles. The chicken appeared leaner than its southern cousin and tasted appropriately spicy, but was a tad greasy. The waffle on... More

My young son and I went on a special trip to Cincinnati for his birthday and this is where we decided to eat lunch. We made the mistake of seating ourselves. It was then the manager came over and spoke to us and gave us information about the restaurant. Very friendly and polite. We ordered our food, chicken and waffes.... More

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 (24) and in bottle. And we serve the absolute best waffles.
