Very cozy environment with excellent service, the steak is quite nice and the price is reasonable ( With drinks around 30 euros per person) I will definitely go there again.

- restaurant is very narrow and long. - we were seated close to the front door. The ventilation system in the kitchen sucks a lot of very cold air into the restaurant which made our table very cold to sit at. - the dry-aged beef I had was not particulary good - the total experience was very overpriced, we paid...

Disappointing evening. Extremely noisy restaurant. Service poor, did not feel we were customers. Had to wait for 10 minutes before someone asked us for drinks. Do not ask for advice on what to eat as this was too much. Kids have no adapted portions. French fries overfried. Meat was properly prepared, I must admit: T Bone / Tenderloin/ Côte à... More

In Leuven on business and had dinner with co-workers. I had heard many times how good the steaks were at Meating Room. I live in Illinois so I'm used to good cuts of meat.

If you are- like us- in for some proper meat, this is the place to be. Simple decor, but a very warm host who will guide you through the huge menu. Look for the specials and do taste the magnificent pepper/cream sauce, as well as the bearnaise. Good value wines will complete the experience, a place to come back to!

You have to book in sittings. Its very busy and service isn't the best but the atmosphere is great all times of day. Its loud and busy and good for larger groups of people as well as couples. Lobster was great, steak great - it is what it says no frills.

We had a light supper there in May 2016. I had pizza with two different halves, my friends had a salad and waffles. It was not exceptional but it didn´t disappoint either. We had a great view of a nearby cathedral, sitting outide.
