Booked a table on OpenTable, turned up and they were closed for renovations. Had planned a nice evening with friends here, but alas we were stranded and took our business elsewhere. Why accept a booking when you're not open?
It is closed, but still shows up and accepts reservations. When we went to the restaurant, the windows were covered.
This is defiantly one of my favorite places to eat. I had so much fun talking to staff before my food came and they were very professional . Food is amazing,taste like home.... Love it
Food was amazing. My wife and I really enjoyed everything about Balkanika
The salad was very disappointing. Both tomatoes and cucubers tasted like the ones from a cheap supermarket. I will not come back and will not recommend this restaurant to anyone since New York offers so many excellent alternatives.
The mixed grill for 2 was fabulous and easily fed 3 of us. The zucchini pancakes, albeit delicious, were a bit overpriced for the portion size.
I went to this place based on the reviews but I honestly don't know how it got such good reviews. Not one thing was good, everything was tasteless and meh. The humus was terrible, the pita wasn't great, the salad was just oil and I asked for lemon and they never brought me any. Our waitress barely came around.
Food was ok, nothing great. Service was not the greatest either. Doubt I'll go again.
Seven of us ate around 9 PM on a Saturday after an off, off Broadway show. We were seated in the bar area so it was noisy but the food and service were great. The $25 appetizer plate (especially the beets with hazelnut) and the trout were among our favorites. A nice find.
My wife and I had a late afternoon lunch in the (sadly, for them) nearly empty restaurant. Everything we ordered was terrific--even the Macedonian red wine! Our particular favorite was the roasted zucchini. It was amazing, and I usually hate zucchini! The cheese bourek and the moussaka were also outstanding. And, to end the meal it really is "hats off" to the "Russian hat."
