Everything was great. Great service even though they were very busy, food was delicious and we are Belgian and everything was authentic. The only remark I would say it’s that it’s very loud.
The muscles and steak frites we some of the best I've had in a while. Try the house beer, Curvee. It goes great with everything.
Great. And check the menu. All delicious. And not too many choices
Loved the food and expertly made cocktail.
Great location and atmosphere for meeting for drinks and food.
The food and service were great, however, the noise level was headache inducing. Between way too loud music and way too loud customers we were all left miserable from the experience.
Perfect place for a pre-show meal. Good food, cold beer and fast service!
When we arrived for our reservation, we found the restaurant to be closed. I would recommend they remove or suspend their listing on OpenTable so that others are not let down in the same manner.
Terrific place, good food and a variety of great Belgium beer
Great spot for Belgian food and beer. Definitely will return.
Very accommodating place, attentive service. Very quick service. Good for casual, pre-theatre meal.
We are frequent diners at BXL Cafe and absolutely love it here. The food is great and the staff is wonderful!
This was a great find near Times Square. Great food, great staff, moderate prices. Would go back again!
Dining at BXL Cafe was such a delightful experience. When you walk in, you feel like you've been transported from NYC to Belgium. The dining room in the back feels so authentic and cozy. I had the mesclun salad with honey and goat cheese croutons, the salmon with mashed potatoes and vegetables, and the profiteroles for dessert. Everything was amazing. The portions were quite generous and the prices extremely reasonable. My server Arifa was absolutely wonderful - she made me feel right at home and ensured that every aspect of my dining experience was perfect. BXL Cafe is truly a gem in Times Square.
In effect, this is an after work pickup bar with a small restaurant attached. Lots of noise and lots of testosterone.
We invited a couple to join us at our favorite restaurant since we were going with them to see a musical that evening. We were given a table toward the back as requested. Service was very attentive and prompt. Our food was excellent. We all enjoyed the meal and they commented on the unique ambience.
Crowded and very noisy at 6:30. Service was good, food was OK at best
Clearly a lot of folks love it, bad fit for me.
Impeccable service and great food. Wait staff was very attentive to our party of 6. Mussels were excellent, as well as the pesto gnocchi.
Had brunch with a friend before a show on Sunday, food and service were great. Fun atmosphere. Very friendly staff.
We loved everything about BXL. The food that we ordered was wonderful and the Belgium Brews that we drank were amazing. We can't wait to go back for another dining and drinking adventure
We frequently eat here and really love this place. Prices are very very reasonable (lower than the Open Table overview indicates). If you go before the rush it’s very quiet but can get noisy when busy.
My daughter and I loved this restaurant. I’ve been a theater goer my whole life but I’ve never tried BXL. This will be my new favorite go to place. Excellent food!!!
Such a great evening. Delicious cocktails and Belgium beer selection. Very good burgers and delicious fries.
We love this restaurant. We were there this time for an early dinner after attending a Broadway matinee.
Disagree with the price range shown on the App. It’s considerably more reasonable!!!
The server was extremely cordial. He treated us very well and changed our order when we didn't know what we ordered. Great beverages on tap!
Had a quick dinner at the Cafe after a day at a trade show. My table was reserved for me which was good since the place was very busy at 6:15. I would of booked later if I knew it was so noisy. The sausage and vegetable mashed potatoes were great but not for the amount charged. Little over priced for basically bangers and mash. Would like to try the place again when it’s not so noisy. Staff was very pleasant.
The food was fantastic as was the service. I’ve never had Belgian food before and it was great..
Great little place and excellent value especially considering how close it is to Times Square. Outstanding food and service. We had the prize fixe lunch before a Broadway matinee show and it was fantastic!! Definitely get the mussels.
We are fans of this wonderful Cafe and have frequently eaten here over the years. Love the ambiance and food.
Cozy pub atmosphere, friendly staff, with a real European flavor, including an enormous range of Belgian beers. Very reasonably priced brunch dishes; the egg dishes were just right on a cold January day. Try the eggs Florentine. A great value.
Great ambience, food good, usual NY level of service (although the lady did forget about me when I asked for the check, and then disappeared, but they're a cheerful bunch), just a bit pricey for what it is. Glad we went, but probably couldn't afford to go twice on the same trip.
Great bistro with lots of character and lots of international patrons. Food was all exactly as it should have been: onion soup with melty cheese that had a bit of crispiness to the edges, a salad perfectly dressed with warm goat cheese and hangar steak with awesome frites! Impressive beer selection too. Only regret is that we didn't discover it sooner!
Decent food for lunch before the theatre although it can get extremely loud with the lunchtime crowd.
Best place to eat in midtown. Great food, reasonable prices, terrific staff and very authentic.
The noise level was very high. Conversation with my companion was difficult and we sat at a small table near each other. Other than that we had an enjoyable evening. Our waiter was accommodating, service good and the food was good.
This was a get together with family from out of state. The food was delicious, the server was attentive and we were very appreciative that we were not rushed to leave. And the cost was extremely reasonable for the quality and portions.
For NYC, this place is quaint. Food and service are always good. Only complaint is that with a party of 6 and a reservation, we were squished in the very back by the bathrooms and kitchen.
When I ordered a beer they brought the wrong one. They then brought the wrong drink to my wife, and put hers at another table. After tasting and realizing it’s the wrong drink, they just tried take ring her correct drink from the other table and pouring it in a new glass. Then on top of all that they charged me for an extra beer I didn’t order.
Long story short don’t go here
BXL is the best way to get down to business with three pots of yummy, steaming mussels before a show! My husband, my niece and I settled into the cozy table right across from the banquet seating the performers from Slava’s Snow Show on Sunday.
Fun! The wait staff introduced us and we took pictures with Slava, had the best dinner and drinks at BXL, and then crossed the street in time to grab our seats at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. Perfetto!
The service at BXL is always friendly and the vibe is lit!
Love this restaurant! It’s a conveniently located and very accommodating Belgium Pub style retreat with lots of delicious dishes, affordable prices, plentiful portions, great beer in tap, creative top shelf cocktails and smiles all around. I’ll be back! Thanks again and Happy New Year!
