at Second Ave.
Now a no-go zone

We had highly enjoyed Belcourt for the past several years; however, the arrival of a new chef has transformed this neighborhood gem into a no-go zone. Best avoided.
I've Got Beef (or at least I am trying to)

I have no objections against the food at Belcourt. That is, when me and my dining companion are delivered the entrees we ordered. NOT while we are still working on our appetizers. However, I do object to being served the wrong meat in my burger. I object to being served that meat undercooked. I object to the faux-apologetic attitude of the server when he realized he served the wrong meat and even more strongly object to waiting 15 minutes to be brought the "correct" meal with the old (now cold) fries still on my plate. Pile that along with being brought the same piece of meat that I initially sent back (still lamb, not beef), getting an attitude when I asked for fresh fries to replace the soggy ones on my plate and the waiter now ignoring my table and I have one more objection- to ever visiting Belcourt again.

Great vanilla French toast. Eggs, not great. Dinner, very mediocre. If you like French toast, it's a must. Otherwise, it's over-priced, not great service.
Love This Bisttro

Nice dinner experience My wife and I visited Belcourt last week after we heard about it from a friend of ours. It was such a pleasant experience Everything from the food to the music to the service was top notch. We will be coming back for more.

Lamb burger with goat cheese. Enough said.

The food at this place is awesome. My boyfriend and I ordered a variety of the starters (they appeared to be more interesting than the main courses), and we were stunned! They were all superb. The food was fresh, delicious, creative (without being over-the-top wild), and hearty. Every dish was great! In addition, the wine was great. I was so impressed that I had to pay my compliments to the chef after the meal. He was friendly (as was the wait-staff) which added to the experience. I will be returning soon!

I've seen Belcourt on tastingtalbe, Nymag, timeout newyork, seriouseater and so on. I had brunch here many times and I highly recommend Pani Frattau and vanilla & bourbon French toast. They provide good service and wine list. Recently, they are doing event during april. If you mention "belcourt for april", you can free soup for a day and glass of wine for evening. maybe mention and ask it to server.
Lovely belcourt with great chef

If you get to know chef "Matt", you should have brunch or dinner here. At least, he loves foods. Belcourt uses organic and fresh ingredients for every food and that's why I became a big fan of belcourt. Decor, service all are excellent. My friends I brought now like Belcourt. I really really love this place.
