Interesting atmopshere/setup for a Belgian bar. Fairly laid back. Selection is fairly average for belgians and price in on par with what youíde expect for Belgian beer. Service was good. Not amazing, and there are better Belgian bars out there, but good if youíre in the neighborhood.

Not sure why the reviews are so low. This is an authentic belgium beer bar. The beers are all good and on draft in the proper glassware (thatís the Belgium way after all). Although it is true that some other places in The City have some harder to find Belgiums...thatís really no knock on what a good job this place does. As for the food...what else do you need in a Belgium beer bar than Belgium cone fries with dipping sauces and excellent Belgium mussels cooked in onions and beer. Comfortable place to hangout including a front courtyard in warmer weather. Only warning is plan your bathroom stops ahead as there is only one unisex bathroom.

An original bar with a different atmosphere. The place has a style that is halfway between cavernous and factory/industrial. Red lights and other strange type of lightning. This is not your typical neighbourhood watering hole. Original layout and divisions. Rooms with different atmosphere. When I was there the crowd was mostly young 20s hipsters-type of trendy New-Yorkers. Music was the lounge/trip-hop style, and they are probably playing whatever the cool trend is right now. Beer list is nothing to brag about. Mostly Belgian beers (if not only Belgian beers) with no special find but some comforting usual suspects. Basically this really is a place to visit if you want to see something else and donít mind venturing into the trendy-underground territory. This place really is something else.

A cool little Belgian beer bar. Definitely worth going to if youíre in that part of the city. Could have a better selection though, and have the beers of which there are posters on the wall.

This is a solid bar. The setuo is pretty interesting with the outdoor area stuck between two indoor sections. The beer selection is mostly Belgian and Belgian-style stuff, with most of the easy to find stuff prominent (Leffe, Chimay, etc), and a few other things available as well. A decent little stop, but not spectacular. Kind of overpriced too, if I remember correctly.

Full-fledged Belgian bar. Cool atmosphere - no loud music...in the heart of the village but almost hidden which was nice.
The beer selection consisted of only Belgian beers. The more common ones such as Hoegarden, Stella, and Leffe ran from 6-7 while rarer ones were 8+. My only gripe was that they were not pouring pints. The glasses looked like they were 12 oz at the most...maybeeven 10-11. Not a place I would frequent but definitely glad I checked it out and Iím sure Iíd go again in the future. I didnít try the food.

Got a glass of delirium tremens here for $9. The staff and place was nice and great location but I just canít get over the price. It was a good to see/taste belgian ales (a bring-me-back to my trip to brussels this summer) but nothing that the hotel bar didnt serve for half the price there.
I probably wonít be going back.

Been 2 or 3 times here. One of which with COBrien (aka The White Mountain) and JRedmond. Looks like a garage door opening. Has a outdoor area leading into a dark Belgian style bar. Beers are not super rare, they do have all the usual Belgians suspects (kwak, chimay, delirium) and maybe a few extras. I go with the Leffe Brune here, which is relatively inexpensive and hard to find in this city. Belgian fare (Frittes, Mussels, etc). Staff is tolerable to drunken fools like me and my friends. Got incredibly smashed leading to the toughest morning at work Iíve ever had. If youíre in the area, walk in.. otherwise not really an essential spot in NYC.

A decent Belgian beer bar, but with the Blind Tiger 2 blocks away and your being in NYC for cripes sake, this place is simply not worth it. All the standard Belgian fare, $8/glass, served with a TON of head. You really dont get your moneys worth. They never have special taps or anything. However the lines are clean and the beer is fresh and the place has a nice atmosphere, so its not terrible. But there are many better options.

Sat outside, awesome atmosphere until it started to drizzle...not their fault though. The inside bar looked pretty chill too. Decent beer selection. We got pwn3d one night off Leffe Brunes then headed to Down the Hatch!
