    Great Mussels and Other Dishes

    The steamed mussels here are consistently the best that I have had in this area. They are prepared in a variety of ways, all delicious, and are complemented, in the Belgian style, by cones of great frites (and with an incredibly wide selection of Belgian beers). However, if you want to try something different, they offer a well-rounded choice of both classic and innovatively-prepared Belgian dishes.

    The food here is so yummy. I've only been to Brussels once, but the food seems very authentic (and rich). The baked eggs and "french" toast for brunch are phenomenal. Pricey, but worth it.

    Crowded, noisey and mediocre

    A good Belgian restaurant brings back memories of great beers, pomme frits with marvellous maionaise, mussels, and the lot. Well, you get some of the beers, the fries could be fast food and the mayo Hellman's and the rest of the menu ... luck of the draw and unimaginative. The place is crowded, the wait staff are inattentive (it's nice to have silverware, or dishes for multiple diners presented simultaneously) and seemingly don't speak English, and prices are outrageous. When Belga first opened, we thought to have a business luncheon there. We began to have doubts when they wanted to separte our party of five to two tables. Enough.

    Not worth it

    While the food here is good, the portions are incredibly puny. You pay for an adult meal and are served something from a kid's menu. The Belgium waffles are, indeed, delicious, but you get one waffle about the size of an Eggo and pay $9 for it. Complete rip off for your money.

    Worth the Mussels

    The mussels are amazing here. I spent 4 months in belgium and this is the only place i've been to (in the US) where i can get real belgian mussels, real belgian frites, and all my favorite belgian beers.

    Good brunch- Service needs work

    We went for brunch on a sunday afternoon. It was fairly quiet. The food was delicious. We had french toast and the scrambled eggs with herbs. The eggs were bright green from the herbs, which was interesting. Ambiance and service could use a little work. The tables are a bit too close to one another and the wait service could be a bit more attentive. I hate having to ask for water, but that may be a bit picky. But, the food is delicious.
