This is more of a "hipster" place than a homestyle restaurant. Food was good, but not a selection that I was hoping to find. Nice if you're looking for something that's different.

If you're visiting Cincinnati you must try Taste of Belgium! Their chicken and waffle is like nothing you've ever eaten. The waffle is made with a dense authentic Belgian dough and the panko crusted chicken has a nice sweet note and comes with a hot...More

Many hotels nearby. It's located in the downtown area with lots of amenities and within walking distance to Bengals stadium.

Garfield but I would recommend one of the Marriotts closer to the river. There will be a public transit opening soon you can access to almost anything downtown.

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.
