    Servers were excellent, very on top of making sure we had what we needed. She recommended a dish and the food was delicious. Expensive but worth it for unique Belgium food.

    The wellness charge isn't explained and is quite ridiculous. I will not return to restaurants that add on charges that are clearly a scam.

    We asked the waiter to plate the endive salad on two separate plates and he simple said: "No. It would ruin the presentation." I was honestly shocked to hear a server say that -- and of course then we did not get it. The music was also blasting above our heads and it was impossible to hear each other, and we were only given one menu when we sat down. For a 1-hour reservation, they did so many things wrong.

    Belga never disappoints. The staff went out of their way to deliver on a hot, crowded day. The chef was outside serving ice cream and it was delicious. My dish was slightly salty, but still delicious. I always recommend Belga and enjoyed it just as much as before.

    They took great care of our large party and helped me celebrate my birthday! Service was quick, friendly, and on point for our table of 13. Food was excellent as always. Would definitely reccomend coming here for brunch or to celebrate anything!

    I don't normally write reviews, but I was really impressed with dinner at Belga. From the moment we walked in the manager and our waiter took great care of us. Dinner was delicious and artfully plated. We will definitely return!
