The food was mediocre. Waiter rather surly. He brought me rose Sancerre when I asked for white, which I opted to keep and try. It was way overpriced $16.50 for small glass. No offer to give a discount for his mistake.
Parking was a nightmare.

It's the expected DC prices (a little expensive) but absolutely delicious. We can't wait to go back for brunch again. We had chicken and waffles, Belgian waffle, waffle bites, bucket of bacon, and the cornbread waffle topped with pulled pork and avocado and it was all absolutely delicious.

Everything was good but nothing was great. Outdoor seating was honored and appreciated although the table itself wobbled and the seats could not be moved easily out of the son due to unused umbrella bases and other items in the way. Car exhaust backing into the parking lot adjacent our table, although completely out of the restaurants control, was not pleasant. Ask for a table on the inside of the sidewalk. Food portions very small and seem to have been reduced from pre-pandemic. $8 for fries is a bit out of control - stopped us from ordering them.

It was just kind of meh. I wouldn’t suggest coming here if you’re looking for something good and interesting. It’s also incredibly over priced.

The food was absolutely delicious. The jerk turkey bacon was EVERYTHING and the French Toast waffle was the star dish at the table

Also our waiter,Kailey, was absolutely amazing.

Such a great restaurant for all group sizes and dynamics.

The manager was fantastic at recommending drinks. Food offerings were unique and interesting but not enough to become craving worthy. Service was good and drinks were amazing…highly recommend the old fashioned and the espresso martini ;)

Had lunch at Belga Cafe with my wife, we shared the scallops appetizer and the mussels entrée. The scallops were very good but the mussels were only ok, which was quite disappointing given their price (~$25). Overall the meal wasn't bad, but value for price was subpar. Outside seating was great.

Went here for brunch to celebrate my birthday. They brought over complimentary Cava prior to our meal. Service was prompt and friendly; food amazing!! Ambiance is “shabby chic” which doesn’t match the food, but does make the place cozy. 10/10 would go again.
