My friends took me there as I'm from Belgium and when they first opened years ago and told me of this restaurant serving Chicken & Waffles. As you can imagine, I was a bit sceptical (read: very much a non-believer). So five years later, I'm in Cincinnati and the time has come for me to give this dish a try!... More

We ordered the Chicken & Waffles and the Salmon Baguette sandwhich. Both were out of this world good! The bloody mary was exceptional as well!! Wonderful breakfast to start the day!

OMG! We stopped in Taste on our 12th Street Trot for a beer and my sister in law insisted we have a waffle to split by the group. It is the best waffle I have ever had. It was crispy, soft and delicious. I wish we had chosen to have lunch here so I could have tried the chicken waffles.... More

Food was great. It's not your typical Sunday brunch menu. The portions seem small but the waffles are very filling. Food tastes great. Nicely decorated. If you have time and the weather is nice it's great to take the kids to Smale park across the street. The park has play equipment and a flying pig for kids and grown ups... More

The crew is not particularly chirpy early on Sunday morning. The younger staff stands around and chats and yawns a lot. Our waiter was polite and quick though. The young lady at the bakery counter had more smiles for male co workers than clients. Food was good. Had the savory crepe with ham and cheese. Interesting fusion cuisine between Belgian... More

Chicken with waffle is a crowd favorite, and one taste will show you why. Their selection is varied, but every one in our family of six (including children) were pleased with their choices. The environment is somewhat loud. The dessert selection was amazing.

I actually went to the TOB on the Banks today for the very first time. OMG! I had 2 waffles and they were to die for. Dense, crunchy, sweet. The waffle was so good that I didn't need any syrup. I put whipped cream on them instead. The whipped cream tasted like ice cream. THIS WAS THE BEST WAFFLES THAT... More

Went to both ToB's during my recent visit. Both were very good, but the At the Banks location was larger and newer. The chicken and waffles were great as was the special pumpkin waffle. I had the Italian crepe that was ok. with a regular crepe batter I feel it would have been better. Service was good and the staff... More

Great weekend brunch location. Make sure you arrive after 11am if you want a cocktail. Great beer selection. Love it! The Banks location has a great new dinner menu and an awesome location, plus 40 beers on tap!

Didn't think we'd go for chicken served with hot sauce and maple syrup over a home made waffle. Wrong! It was incredible and now we can see why this is a Cincinnati favourite. Great service, great atmosphere, and yummy meal -- all at a very reasonable price.

Taste of Belgium serves Belgian food with a twist. If it's not Belgian, we "Belgianize" it. We serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and one-of-a-kind weekend brunch. We have a full bar and a wide selection of Belgian beers on draft and in bottle. And we serve the absolute best waffles.
