Great atmosphere with live piano music, very attentive staff with excellent service and good food. Appropriately priced for the quality of the experience, but still slightly pricey for everyday dining so recommend for special occasions and dates to impress!

I have dined before at Bellanger and the service and food was excellent. However, on my most recent visit the service was well below par and did not meet my expectations. Our table was not laid properly - onyl 1 out of 3 diners had side plates. We had to ask twice for water and then waited considerably for this to arrive. After our main courses, we were left with dirty plates on our table for around 30 mins. For dessert, two desserts were received and then again, we had to wait considerably for the 3rd dessert to arrive. This was very disappointing as the food was great.

I also noticed that dogs are allowed in the restaurant now and this is something I am not particularly comfortable with as at least twice during our meal, we were disrupted by a dog barking next to our table.

I do not feel my experience or the service was well reflected in the price that we paid.

Though very busy on Valentine’s Day, we had a great experience.
The food tastes just like in Alsace, and we warmly recommend the Tarte Flambée , the choucroute and the Munster cheese.
The wine list has lots of whites to go with the food.

Good food in a wonderful salon atmosphere. Relaxed and bustling at the same time - a real gem, almost no matter what you're in the mood for.

We do enjoy visiting Bellanger, it would be nice to be recognised by the staff though as we do visit quite often.

Service was a bit slow, but the ambience and atmosphere did worth the wait. They have also a life pianist. Unfortunately the restaurant is big and music did not reach to our table.

Food is carefully cooked with a lot of attention to details, without abusing on butter (like many other French inspired restaurants). It took a long time to get to our table and it was a bit cold.

Me and 2 friends had met for a belated birthday lunch. As always service was on point and food fantastic. What made our lunch outstanding and one to be remembered was the waitress that served us. (We don't know her name but our table was no.9 and we were booked in at 1.30pm on 3rd Feb) she was so lovely and when asked why we were having champagne for lunch we told her that it was a birthday catch up. We all work in the hospitality industry and although our birthdays were in December & January due to our jobs hadn't been able to meet up till now.
After our mains arrived 3 plates with happy birthday and petit four which just made our day! (I know this is something you do for birthdays as I've seen it before and had one myself but for all 3 of us was a lovely touch)
Thanks once again for a great lunch!
Please pass on our comments to the waitress.

Service was shockingly slow. It took 2 hours for 2 courses to arrive. Not so much as an apology, even after having to get up from the table to check what was going on. To top it off, the £30 entrecôte I ordered medium rare was cooked through. Dreadful. Dine at your peril.

Whereas Bellanger sadly has disappointed several times when it comes to breakfast/brunch (in particular) and lunch, with poorly prepared food and lousy service, then it was great to see that at dinner it is "business as usual": very good food, well prepared, and lovely service with a smile. Keep it up!

Bellangers is a restaurant not too far away from us and we eat there from time to time
This last week was the only time we have eaten on a Saturday evening and I doubt that we would choose to do so again
It seemed that there was a paucity of staff to wait on the tables having ordered pate we had to wait to have bread brought to eat with it and generally there wasn’t the usual service
The staff are always nice but they did seem to be a bit harassed

Choucroute was Luke warm ,one small potato, not enough Chou. Meat was of good quality but the kitchen is not delivering as it should. The service has zero smiles. Welcome was just ok and there was no goodbye. The decor of the restaurant is nice and you would expect better as sister restaurants are always great.

A stylish place to dine on New Year's Eve. Delicious food as always and a great combination of total comfort and an authentic Alsace ambience. Recommended.
