We ordered the Chicken & Waffles and the Salmon Baguette sandwhich. Both were out of this world good! The bloody mary was exceptional as well!! Wonderful breakfast to start the day!

OMG! We stopped in Taste on our 12th Street Trot for a beer and my sister in law insisted we have a waffle to split by the group. It is the best waffle I have ever had. It was crispy, soft and delicious. I wish...More

Food was great. It's not your typical Sunday brunch menu. The portions seem small but the waffles are very filling. Food tastes great. Nicely decorated. If you have time and the weather is nice it's great to take the kids to Smale park across the...More

The crew is not particularly chirpy early on Sunday morning. The younger staff stands around and chats and yawns a lot. Our waiter was polite and quick though. The young lady at the bakery counter had more smiles for male co workers than clients. Food...More

Chicken with waffle is a crowd favorite, and one taste will show you why. Their selection is varied, but every one in our family of six (including children) were pleased with their choices. The environment is somewhat loud. The dessert selection was amazing.

Great weekend brunch location. Make sure you arrive after 11am if you want a cocktail. Great beer selection. Love it! The Banks location has a great new dinner menu and an awesome location, plus 40 beers on tap!

Didn't think we'd go for chicken served with hot sauce and maple syrup over a home made waffle. Wrong! It was incredible and now we can see why this is a Cincinnati favourite. Great service, great atmosphere, and yummy meal -- all at a very...More

Different food. Got the chicken and waffles. Chicken had hot sauce. Waffles had a sugar in the batter making it more dense rather than fluffy like traditional Belgium waffles. Very good still. Very awkward though as we were seated in the private room in the...More

Garfield but I would recommend one of the Marriotts closer to the river. There will be a public transit opening soon you can access to almost anything downtown.

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.
