    Into It

    If you go, order the pork toast - crispy and good! Short rib carbonnade was super tender and fries were spot on. Beer list was huge and overwhelming, but bartender gave some decent recommendations. Kind of in a random neighborhood.

    Rude staff, small portions

    This place has good beers and a fun vibe but the portions are small, it is very expensive and the waiter was embracing a wiseguy schtick that got old fast. Much better options in the area.

    Don't expect Belgium food!

    Those expecting belgium food - beware - the food is nothing like that in the home country. Just try the frietsauce and you know. Portions are relatively small for the prices charged. The burger tasted of unsalted mayonaisse and the 'bitter ballen' were nothing what they are supposed to taste like (they tasted more like mini kabobs). Besides the food being disappointing, the service was an unpleasant experience. The older waiter (who seemed unfamiliar with Belgium cuisine) was obnoxious at times. After ordering 3 burgers, a beer and 2 appetizers to share, our dinner for 3 set us back $120, which given the portions and average quality seemed overpriced to us.

    Perfect Place

    I recently hosted a 16 person business dinner at resto and I just wanted to write a quick note about the amazing experience I had. I planned the meal in advance and ordered from the 'large format' menu they have. We had the sausages, fries, and some kind of cauliflower dish to start, which were all excellent. For the main dishes we had the poularde, sea bass, and the steak. All were served on large dishes to the entire table family style. Dessert was belgian waffles and chocolates. We had one person with dietary restrictions and the staff could not have been more accommodating. All in all it was a great experience, and I received nothing but compliments from those who attended the dinner!

    great find in a lame neighborhood

    surprisingly good food and pleasant atmosphere. I had a Corsendonk brown and Moules Frites and neither of them disappointed... too bad it's in Murray Hill.

    Good burger, good lunch

    I decided to go after reading the NY Magazine article about the city's best new burgers, and it did not disappoint. Though they don't let you choose the temperature of your burger, which comes out roughly medium well on the inside and has a nice char on the outside, it still retains an amazing amount of juice and falls apart in your mouth. The seasoning also matched very well with the gruyre. If I weren't afraid of dying from a heart attack the next day, I'd eat 3 or 4 of them. The hangover pasta was very good too - perfectly al dente and a great mix with the ham and sunny egg. The fries were ok... thick cut and crispy but a bit dry. The fish sandwich was kinda small, and the sides weren't really special. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience... not too crowded for lunch on a weekday.

    What?!

    So I went to Resto with a friend last night in the hopes to have a good drink and dinner. I ordered the Panzanella Bread Salad special and was shocked when (honest to god) there was a dinner plate with 6 baby arugula leaves, 4 croutons, half a cherry tomato, one slice of an heirloom tomato, and a green bean cut in half on my plate. I was even more shocked upon receiving the bill and seeing that it cost $13. I understand NYC prices cater to a certain clientele, but that was ridiculous. $55 for two sides of fries, that joke of a salad, and two small glasses of prosecco is beyond ridiculous.
