Excellent food, excellent service. Waiters were courteous & very prompt. Provided good recommendations for the wines. Goose foie gras was to die for, cheese plate very good as well. Not cheap, but felt it was good value for the quality of the food. The place fills up, make a reservation, or get there early and try your luck!

Without a booking, at first we thought it was ok, being placed just inside the open door, but the restaurant never got even nearly full.
When the waitor opened our wine at the table, he dropped the foil - and just kicked it under the table (!). After the approval of taste, the waiter managed to sling the wine all over both of us - trousers, shirts, jackets..! He did apologize, but only later brought some paper napkins to deal with the mess. Totally useless.
We should have left by then, or maybe when we were served the wrong starter. Our poor french made it impossible to make a prober remark or complaint. Here it is now.
Avoid the restaurant if you can.

We went back for the superb beef in pastry we tasted last time we visited this restaurant. What a dissapointement. The food was nice, but overprised. But the service was terrible. Waiters arguing the whole evening next to our table and then being rude because we didn't leave a tip. For that price you would expect decent service. Sad to see this institute of belgian cuisine becoming a tourist trap. And we're not even tourists...

Food ok but service was poor; the waiter was perfectly nice but the young guy taking the orders was rude and unpleasant; if they do not like people they should move to another job; I will not be back, ever.

We hand a very nice dinner and the food was marvelous.
But definitively the restaurant need to improve the service.
1. As not everybody is fluent in French, the restaurant should provide the menu in English or at least the waiters should be able to explain the menus in English
2. The service was really careless and never asked for new drinks
3. Empty glasses have not been taken away
4. Drinks which has been ordered, has not been delivered.

All in all a nice restaurant with nice food but they fell short in service.
