The TOB in the GE building was buzzing before the Reds game. My daughter had the strawberry waffles and really liked them. I tried the local dish called Goetta which is blend of pork, oatmeal and spices. It was served on a huge bed of perfect fries with two eggs over easy and peppers and onions. It was filling, well...

Casual fun place to eat. Food is good but not high end more of a pub like menu. It can be enjoyed with family, friends or as a couple.

Taste of Belgium is good and it is a Cincinnati favorite. However, we have experienced many other similar priced restaurants that we like better. They are becoming a chain by opening more locations and that affects attention to detail. Most often this results in ingredients being prepared offsite and that affects quality.

I have never liked waffles until I ate here! OMG! So good and the chicken is by far the best chicken we have ever had. Highly recommend this place.

Taste of Belgium was our choice because it was close to our Cincinnati destination and certainly delivered on the promise of outstanding waffles! After much deliberation over the menu items, all three of us opted for the Chicken & Waffles. The chicken appeared leaner than its southern cousin and tasted appropriately spicy, but was a tad greasy. The waffle on... More

My young son and I went on a special trip to Cincinnati for his birthday and this is where we decided to eat lunch. We made the mistake of seating ourselves. It was then the manager came over and spoke to us and gave us information about the restaurant. Very friendly and polite. We ordered our food, chicken and waffes.... More

Saw this place recommended on TripAdvisor...and it's excellent. I was with three friends and we shared some tasting plates..the Brussel Sprouts are delicious! Make sure you save room for waffles because they were so nice. Great service from friendly staff.

Taste of Belgium has cemented themselves as a Cincinnati staple! Their Waffle and Chicken belongs in Cincinnati's food hall of fame (not sure if this event exists). Not in the mood for delicious waffles and chicken! No worries! They have great draft beers and a menu full of mouth watering dishes. Go! go! go!

My husband found this restaurant from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and wow, was it good!! We went in shortly before noon on a Saturday. It was busy, but we got a seat right away. I ordered a brunch burger that had a waffle bun, egg, bacon and cheese. One of the best things I've eaten in a very long time.... More

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.
