We went here to a theater after party, which featured passed snacks and a buffet. Everyone was raving how good the food was and the coziness of this rather large mid town restaurant. We decided to go back for dinner and were very pleased how gracious the host was and how good the food was. We had the mussels and frites, steak tartare, carbonnade of beef and banana foster waffles. Just well prepared food served with a big beer selection. will be back

We went here with a large group to celebrate the crowning of the new king of Holland. The beer selection was grteat and the bitterballen are right on the money...not fried meatballs like the other places. perfect french fries in the classic paper cone. I had the codfish in leek sauce for dinner..very good. The rice pudding is unique and typical belgium. My only gripe was that one of my favorite beers was out of stock. Anyway..a great place in midtown.

As an avid european traveler, i have to say that the bitterballen croquettes here are very close to the real deal. great beer selection, good home made frites in paper bag and aromatic musselpots. Place to hang after work.

Went here on Saturday. Loved the short Rib 5 spice special. My girl friend had the hazel nut crusted snapper. This is a warm and inviting beautiful place with a great bartender. Many exotic Belgian beers. We also liked the fried calamari w sweet chil sauce. We will be back

My wife is Belgian and we live in Ottawa, Canada which is a significantly smaller city than NYC so it is understandable that there would not be a lot of Belgian cuisine. We travel from time to time to Montreal, but even in Montreal we have yet to find any Belgian cuisine. BBB was incredible! After a 3 night stay in NYC, this was one of the last things on our list before heading out for Ottawa the next morning and let me tell you: INCREDIBLE. Authentic Belgian cuisine not in Belgium! My wife loved it and picked out things I didn't even notice - like a lot of their decor or even the correct glasses for their bottles of Pauwel Kwak! Belgian cuisine has often been described as "French quality, German quantity" and BBB certainly lived up to that!

Went here when it first opened and loved it so much returned several times, but it has already started going downhill. Went last night with my husband and another couple. The truffle croquettes are off the menu and they were "out" of the shrimp croquettes. My roasted chicken was dry. The waiter couldn't explain anything on the menu, at one point telling us that one of the sorbet flavors was "cream" (to be fair to him, he barely spoke English and clearly had had no training whatsoever). Never going back.

Just tried their croquettes and bitterballen. Being from Belgium, I can honestly say both were subpar and dry, the bitterballen was just a glorified fried meatball.
