Food was tasty and the doffle was amazing! I wasn’t a huge fan of the green eggs, but nibbled on my friends different waffles which were all amazing. Also most delicious bacon ever! It was a bit noisy, but we were seated by the kitchen so not surprising. One thing to note is that you won’t be seated until your full party is there, so we waited for about 20min for the strangler of our group. Overall, I’ll definitely be coming back!

The food at Belga is always delish and the cocktails are so creative and fun. We had a seat outside for Sunday brunch and the weather was wonderful and the service was amazing. We will definitely be back.

I was introduced to Belga Cafe in Apr 2021 and it has become my new favorite brunch spot!

The “Jack Rabbit” is delish BTW...so is the “Irish coffee”🤤

I took my girlfriend there for our first anniversary. The food was outstanding. The presentation of the food was eye catching, and the flavors were so, so good. I would highly recommend dinner. Another little bonus: they gave us plenty of time between the appetizer, dinner, and dessert. At no point did we feel rushed. Loved it!

The food is fine and in keeping with DC prices being ridiculous compared to other foodie cities. The problem we had was with the server. He wasn't polite or attentive. We would probably go back, but only if someone else wanted to go. I would recommend if someone was in Barracks Row and really wanted Belgian food - but if you want a belgian waffle, its probably best to call ahead and see if they are making them.

Food was fantastic, service was good, steak frites was a bit pricy for the portion, the chairs were a little uncomfortable and I was bummed they were out of the major sweet brunch items (doffle and cinnamon bun waffle), I’ll be back to try those and hopefully they’ll be there

It's a little pricey, but the food is exceptional. The croquets are served in a way you'll never see anywhere else. My halibut was outstanding, and the waiter recommended a perfect wine to go with it. We sat outside, so it was quiet. Several staff members stopped by to check on us.
