    Got great seating at bar. Busy evening. Food good as always, bitterballen, mussels, fries, etc. It’s oddly chaotic in this place for some reason, feel it every time I go. Will keep going as everyone is helpful and pleasant but hope they get more staff and become more buttoned up.

    The service was excellent, and the hostess was very patient with us as we waffled about where to sit. Our dinners were quite good (the fried fish was perfect, and VERY ample) . The margarita given to our guest was of the unfamiliar variety, with fruit juice and very week on the tequila factor. Also it was not served in a margarita glass: weird. Than, at 9 Maple, a similar margarita was served: very fruity and in a tall glass. Our guests were not impressed, but we liked the place and will return.

    It was our anniversary and we decided to give this new spot a shot, it was a breath of fresh air to Saratoga Springs dining. We really enjoyed the vast verity of European dishes from Western to Central to Eastern European cuisine. We had the pleasure of trying a little bit of everything and we were pleasantly impressed. The staff is super friendly, the owners even came out and chatted a bit which was a delight. This is a gem of a place and we are excited to say we will be back ! I love having a little European touch to the area, cheers to prosperity and abundance, keep cooking with your hearts and souls

    This new Belgian inspired restaurant is beautifully adorned, and the menu is diverse and interesting. The waitstaff were highly attentive and personable, and the dinner was, overall, a good experience. The food was good, not great, though. The dishes were nicely prepared and plentiful, but many of them seemed to lack needed seasoning. I will definitely give it another try. It is possible the lack of seasoning was an anomaly, and even with that issue, the food was still good and not overly expensive for what one received.

    Several restaurants have been in this location with moderate success. This one is the keeper. Great good, really great and they sliced up the atmosphere as well. Very nice bar though I was shocked they had no real German beers (Stella does not county) on tap. But still good selection pairing nicely with dinner. Every dish from apps to enter were robust with flavor, unique and plentiful in portion. It will not disappoint

    I like the place, however, the salad was not worth the money. A few greens in a small bowl and no substance. Added chicken which came on the side making it not worth the $23 for it. Disappointing.

    Comfortable neighborhood place mostly filled by regulars. Food is typical of what we’ve had in Belgium and the Netherlands. Typical European service, relaxed atmosphere. Pork shank was flavorful and fall-off-the-bone tender

    (Fair warning, I worked my way through school in restaurants and professional kitchens and make these dishes myself on occasion.) Being of German heritage, I was drawn in by the selection of German food and imported bears. My wife and I decided to try Brasserie Benelux on our date night. we split the scallops wrapped in bacon as an appetizer. They came 4 on a skewer served on a bed of what is supposed to be Jasmin rice which had the appearance, taste and texture of plain white rice. The scallops themselves were cooked perfectly and the bacon was flavorful and crisp. The honey Dijon sauce made a good pairing. I followed with the "World Famous" Jager Schnitzel. The cutlet itself was cooked well. Nice and crisp. The Jager sauce seemed more liked a brown gravy with sautéed sliced baby bella mushrooms rather than based on a veal stock and an assortment of wild mushrooms. The sauce should be made using an assortment of chanterelle, oyster, and porcini mushrooms and yes. some baby bellas to stretch it out, but not all of the cheaper mushroom. The home fries could have been crisper, and the red cabbage was almost inedible as the seasoning was overpowering. The cabbage was also overcooked, or from a bulk package. My wife had the Viennese Veal Wiener Schnitzel. It was a good sized portion but with just a lemon wedge for dressing it was a bit dry. The homemade spatzle started out nicely but when they tossed it in a pan with some butter, they overcooked it leaving a starchy skin on the dumplings. The lemon and lingonberry garnish was only about a tablespoon and could have been more to help the generally dry dish. If you cant get the sides right, what hope does the main have? BTW, the great list of bears on the wall...they didn't have half of them.

    great menu however the swedish meatballs were just about warm. Almost sent them back. Sauce was very bland. Diver scallops had great flavor but small. We ordered strawberry dessert crepes. Think the crepe could have been served warmed. It was too cold. Our waitress was wonderful, but we felt rest of staff running around not sure what to do. Our table was right next to dirty dish container which isn't what you need to see while eating. This place has such potential it just needs some fine tuning.

    I had the Chicken Schnitzel with mushrooms, red cabbage and mashed potatoes. The red cabbage was delicious and the rest was average but good. My wife got the veal schnitzel with spatzle, cucumber salad. Her cut of meat was full of gristle and she struggled to cut and eat it. We complained to the waitress and she thankfully took it off our bill. The spatzle needed something- gravy! And the cucumber salad lacked the acid needed from vinegar. There are a lot of European standards on the menu: Belgian frites and mussels, authentic Bavarian pretzels, Cordon Bleu, Swedish meatballs. It might be a while before we get back to this restaurant, but they do have some intriguing entrees.

Hubby had Veal Cordon Blue w spinach and red cabbage. He loved it. Drinks were good, everything was reasonably priced and we enjoyed the entire evening.
