I have to agree with spagoots on his/her review of Resto. This restaurant is not quite as horrible as some of the other reviewers are suggesting, but it is certainly not excellent either. As many others have said, the Belgian joint is pretty bustling and noisy on a Friday night. There was no question about that. The ambience was great, but unlike what one reviewer said, I would have to say that it did feel a tad bit crowded (but there are other places that are far worse.) As for the service, the hostess was pretty nice to me, but she was visibly annoyed with another late party. Having worked in the restaurant business years ago, I do understand how frustrating rude patrons can be. They sometimes expect you to work your magic wand, as if they're the only people dining on the weekend. So basically, I am not sure what happened there, but as a restaurant employee, I wouldn't visibly show my frustration. My server was very nice, although the specials rolled off her tongue in the way a really bad actor recites memorized lines. My knowledge of Belgian cuisine is not really extensive, but I do know that portion sizes are quite large. I wanted to know if there was a way for me to split the frites, so I can have both the curry and orange zest options. Unfortunately, I couldn't, and after I finished dining, I don't see why. Some suggested that the fries might have been frozen. They were decent, but didn't have special seasoning or anything. They might have been frozen or just your everyday diner fries. The worst part is that I could not taste any garlic or orange zest that was described on the menu. The best menu items were the Belgian beer selections (which is the main reason I placed a reservation) and the mussels. There wasn't anything unique about the mussels, but the serving size was fairly large.
Pros: Belgian beer selections, not empty, outdoor seating
Cons: no menu variety, tightly-packed space, item flavor
