Just to let people know I am not in the habit of eating a late brunch but at the recomendation of a business associate I stopped at belcourt. How glad I was! What a cute place, the service was good, and my choice of the croque Madame was excellent. Service was quick but I didn't feel rushed. The lamb, cheese and mornay sauce was an excellent combination. As for people complaining that their lamb burgers were undercooked, all I have to say is, it is hard to find someplace that will actually cook a burger rare to my likeing. I will be going back to sample the Lamb Burger soon.

I have no objections against the food at Belcourt. That is, when me and my dining companion are delivered the entrees we ordered. not while we are still working on our appetizers. However, I do object to being served the wrong meat in my burger. I object to being served that meat undercooked. I object to the faux-apologetic attitude of the server when he realized he served the wrong meat and even more strongly object to waiting 15 minutes to be brought the "correct" meal with the old (now cold) fries still on my plate. Pile that along with being brought the same piece of meat that I initially sent back (still lamb, not beef), getting an attitude when I asked for fresh fries to replace the soggy ones on my plate and the waiter now ignoring my table and I have one more objection- to ever visiting Belcourt again.

I went to Belcourt last night excited to try it after a friend recommended it. The menu online looked good and the restaurant looked cute from the outside as I had passed it before. The restaurant itself was cute but the food and service were subpar. I ordered a burger which was brought to me halfway through eating my salad appetizer. When I bit into the burger it was clearly rare (I had ordered it medium rare) as it was uncooked and cold. I sent it back and when it returned my knife I had used to cut the burger initally was still lying on my plate where I had left it. The fries were ice cold as they had not given me new ones. While it looked like they had given me a new burger, alas, they had not... they had re-arranged the patty so I wouldn't see the one bite I had taken. Throughout all of this, the waiter never came over to check on us. On the contrary, he continually went out of his way to avoid our table. I had to wait 10 minutes before I could even tell him about the fries and another ten before he brought them out. Of course by that time, I was already done with the burger. As if that was enough, the empty water bottle they leave on the table was removed but never replaced until we asked for more. The waiter clearly did not want to be there and it showed. In this economy, with good restaurants closing left and right, new ones should do everything they can to go above and beyond. Trust me, as a foodie in the restaurant business this place is not worth your hard earned money.

went their for brunch on a sunday around 11:30 and were seated immediately, though it did get pretty busy around 12:30. The biscuits are great as are the pork sausage! everything was prepared as ordered so it had a great fresh taste and felt very home made. The paprika potatoes were a tad undercooked but still good. Our waitress seemed a little lost in her service but another waitress tried to pick up her slack and helped make our experience better. I would still recommend it but get there before the 12:30 rush!

I'm sorry the previous reviewer had a bad time here I went last night for the third time and am now going around the internet to write reviews because I'm so charmed and knocked out by the place. My experiences with the staff have been nothing but great. They aren't the butt-kissing types, and I like that! But they're very gracious, knowledgeable, attractive, andwhat more do ya want?! The food is AMAZINGso fresh and good, the menu always impresses me with its range and inspiredness. And the cocktails are phenomenal. I hope its around for a long time to come. The East village sorely needs places like these, with so much personality, charm, and great eats and drinks.

Best brunch we've ever had and we have been everywhere literally , all the famous and best and some not so famous. We do brunch every week. We must say that the service did not measure up to the other credentials.

this chef knows his way around a pig, the house cured bacon at brunch, thick and delicious is a revelation (with perfectly cooked eggs! ) And his pork belly is divine, melt in your mouth stuff. He changes the delivery with his menu changes, but thank god seems to keep it on most of the time. the house made sausages are to die for, especially with the salsa verde on top. all this is not to say there are no veggies here - the salads are unusually creative and delicious (favorite the summer squash with marcona almonds and brown butter), and the non-pork items I have tasted are always accompanied by interesting fresh sides (corn succotash and swiss chard with anaiss were both outstanding.) but obviously, I am pig obsessed, and Belcourt nails it every time.
