    Located on a great spot (if the weather is nice, ask to be seated on the terrace), this is a really nice restaurant. The food was great and especially the guy who served us was very polite and friendly. Tip: the sabayon is delicious but huge (the actual pan is served along), so better for sharing.

    We had great beef carpacio and shrimp salad for starter. Then we had short-rib, ribeye and tuna stakes. All perfect. Chocolate ganache was not at the level of main course. Service was nice.

    The starters were nice, the friendliness of the staff warm but the special of the menu not at all what was expected. It was a bit disappointing with the amount we paid...

    It is obvious that the actual focus of Core is being a good steakhouse. And the quality of their meat and the execution of the meat dishes is excellent. However, that is not how they present themselves on The Fork. There is nothing diverse, experimental or "trendy" about Core. I would especially advise to avoid the seafood dishes, they are uninspired and of dubious freshness. They did not offer the tasting menu that we had clicked on when booking through The Fork - so it ended up being more expensive than expected, and the dishes don't resemble the alluring photos here. Staff was friendly enough, but I would only suggest going to Core if you want to eat half a cow.

    Second time for us in this restaurant because the food is excellent so we wanted to give a second chance to the service. And we will not come back

    Nice ambience, good service and excellent starters dishes! Great food presentation! Good selection of starters and main courses. Also good wine selection but a bit pricey. Overall, happy with the meal.

    The restaurant was perfect: nice atmosfere, dishes of high quality well presented based on fish or meat, amazing Croatian wine and service superb. The waiter was very gentle since our arrival. Medium-high level and correct price for service and food. It was the birthday of my boyfriend and we have spent an amazing evening also with soft romantic music. We will come back!

    Very good food, well presented and at an affordable price (for Brussels standards), in a quiet restaurant with nice soft music. Only criticism: it took a rather long time to receive the dishes, even if there were only a few customers.

    Great ambiance. The food we had was fabulous. I had the tuna steak and it was amazing as was the sea bass my other half had. The service was slow - we were sat at the table and after 10-15 minutes we had to ask for the menu and when we wanted a bottle of water it took 3 goes to get it. Worth going but don’t expect to get out in a hurry.

    The foods was great. Atmosphere is so gorgeous, situated inside the city. Food came on average time. Service ok slight slow. The bill came very slow and needed to be re-calculated a couple times. If u join the discount/coupon meal, make sure they calculate correct.discount Don’t hesticate to ask, then you would be a smart customer! ????
