Taste of Belgium is a restaurant group of Belgian-inspired eateries. We take traditional Belgian recipes and we twist them; we take American classics and we Belgianize them. We believe elegant cuisine can be served with a down-to-earth attitude and humble foods can be served elegantly. We take the food we create and the service we provide very seriously, but not ourselves. Waffles, Chicken, Beer. Eat Like a Belgian, Drink Like a Belgian, Live Like a Belgian!

    Our waiter was friendly and attentive. The brussel sprout appetizer and chicken and waffles were delicious. I had the salmon, but was disappointed. It was supposed to have a spiced rum sauce. Instead, it was coated with a chipotle seasoning.

    Dinner before concert. Took about 15 min for waitress to greet us after sat down. I had to go to hostess stand and they were annoyed. The restaurant was not busy and waitresses/waiters were standing around so wasn’t staffing issue. They were waiting on other tables around us, so must have been communication issue with who was assigned. Service rest of evening was fine. Food was average.

    This was our first time there and to be fair a Garth Brooks concert was that evening. The server was frazzled it seemed and kept forgetting things we asked for. Our appetizers came out when we were all nearly finished with our entrees. The server apologized and did eventually get everything we asked for after reminding them a few times. The food was really good. I had the brunch burger and would recommend it to anyone one who likes egg on their burger. The maple syrup came on the side which is great since the waffles used for buns is already sweet. I accidently was given the side salad with the burger and it was enjoyable. The dressing was a lightly flavored Italian dressing (I think). The dressing was just enough to have flavor for the salad and not be overpowering. My daughter and I split the NY Style Cheesecake. Wow was that good! I am used to thick and heavy cheesecake. This was light and fluffy with a nice cream and what I think was white chocolate shavings. I am looking forward to coming in again to try something else.

    Every time I visit Cincinnati, I book this restaurant for breakfast. Chicken and Waffles, seasonal fruit and mimosa is my go to meal. This time I tried it with the blueberry waffle. Loved it. I’ve been 5 times and every time has been great.

    I went to Taste of Belgium with my son after a soccer game at nearby Seven Hills School. We love coming here and had a wonderful time with the food, with our server, and with the manager. The place was very busy but even so we were seated quickly and food came out quickly and was a great temperature. We do so enjoy making this a stop whenever we come to or are driving through Cincinnati.

    Food was great drinks were great. However there was Valentine’s Day specials and unique items available and our waiter didn’t mention any of it. He had moments where he disappeared and would be gone for a while.. didn’t even ask about desserts. He brought the bill and then when we asked he said we could go to the counter and get it ourselves

    Pretty good overall. Food was a little bland, but good. I had the chicken biscuits and gravy with an egg on top. Just missing a little something in the seasoning department. Spicy Bloody Mary I had was good and actually spicy. Definitely more of a drink than a soup in a glass like some Bloddy’s can be, so I was very pleased with that. Good service.

    Great atmosphere and food. Staff was overwhelmed because of nearby event and everyone converged on them at once. Didn't get drinks until we were almost done with dinner. And, missed out on a favorite beer because they didn't have time to tap a keg once one ran out. Other than that, very good experience. Great place to go after a sporting event at Paul Brown Stadium.

    Overall a great experience! All the staff were friendly, even those we passed walking to/from the table. We were pleased that the restaurant was not overly crowded and efforts were made to seat guests at a reasonable distance from each other. The food was good as always, although I was slightly disappointed the frites weren't better. They were good, not fantastic I do hope the supply chain surcharge will be dropped soon or simply rolled into the relevant dishes. Overall, I still feel meals were reasonably priced for quality

    Requested the birds be removed from within the restaurant, server said the doors are open and can’t really do anything about it, with a meh…attitude. I’m scared to death of birds, which shouldn’t be in a restaurant to begin with, and is disgusting from a hygiene standpoint. Her comment was inappropriate. She did attempt shooing them out, one of which did fly out but caused another to fly higher into the room. NOT OK! Btw, do servers get a cut of the 20% off gift cards, because she mentioned it three times. Will not return to the Banks! The food was excellent!
