Cool atmosphere where you can sit and watch the chefs make waffles. We had the grilled chicken sandwich and I had our waiter pick my meal. Chicken and Waffles with a side of goetta. Good service and atmosphere.

Had lunch at this place and tried the sandwich that was made with waffles instead of bread. This was unusual, for sure, and I'm not sure I like the combination. Had a mimosa with it, and I have had better. Also, two others in our party had Bloody Mary's which were too spicy to finish. The bakery portion of the... More

LIterally no complaints. Had an excellent meal, with an excellent service, and an excellent atmosphere. Can't go wrong here! Great when showing friends around that aren't from here.

Book ahead on Open Table since this place is very popular. We had crepes and a ham waffle. The chicken waffle is their signature dish. The coffee is mellow and some of the best the I have had. A must do in Cincinnati.

This place really felt like a nice European cafe/restaurant. Good European beer on tap with good quality food. Solid service and fair prices. I had the steak and frites which they cooked exactly to specs. I had a very good crepe after dinner which was prepared by a highly talented chef. I took a croissant and chocolate chip cookie to...

No Waffle House stuff here - this is how me to thick and sumptuous waffles. The signature waffle and chicken is delightfully a marriage of hot sauce meets sweet and syrupy - and it works! Save room for a dessert waffle and also try a brew from their long list of legendary lagers.

Given the disappointing "free breakfast" at our hotel (you get what you paid for) we found this restaurant through OpenTable. Great menu, excellent service, well priced.

Stopped in on our way to the Bengals/Eagles game. They were packed, but the wait wasn't too bad. Service was decent and friendly. I had a latte that was divine. Husband had the smoked salmon baguette. It was soooo good. And I don't even like smoked salmon! I had the waffle mcmuffin. It was okay. I didn't care for the... More

Stopped in for brunch on a busy Sunday in Cincy - Was heading for a Cincinnati Pops concert and the Bengals were in town. Restaurant was hopping around noon. No tables were available, but my friend and I found spots to sit at the small bar facing the food prep. It was our first time there and we were welcomed... More

My friends took me there as I'm from Belgium and when they first opened years ago and told me of this restaurant serving Chicken & Waffles. As you can imagine, I was a bit sceptical (read: very much a non-believer). So five years later, I'm in Cincinnati and the time has come for me to give this dish a try!... 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.
