Balans - Lincoln Road
We had the breakfast menu which was excellent...eggs perfectly cooked and bacon very crispy. Service was also excellent. Unfortunately, the restaurant allows smoking outdoors which made my stay slightly unpleasant.
We have been walking by Balans for several years and finally gave it a try on Jan. 3. The food and service was very good. We looked forward to sitting outside on a nice evening. Unfortunately we didn’t know they are a vaping restaurant. The vaping was a real turn off. Not something I want to smell while having a nice meal. For that reason I marked the rating down and will not return. If vaping is not a concern for you it could be a nice experience.
Staff was great, Bruno was great! The churrasco and the fried yuca were delicious! Desserts were fantastic. Nothing that I would change!
Drinks were not strong. Cold outside with no heaters working. Great food and great service!
I recommend Balans as a great place for brunch, but not as much for dinner. The food was OK, but the Mojito was basically mint flavored water.
We had the beat waiter ever!
Always a lovely dining experience at Balans Lincoln Rd. Bring back the seafood and fruit Summer salad please
Had a very nice time as usual, served by my favorite waiter
I was visiting in Florida and decided to dine here with my friends and for hookah. The food was great, I had no complaints with the food. However, their hookah is way over priced (around $50 for a hookah with a grapefruit head) and it didn’t even work right. Considering back in NY/NJ I get two good hookahs that already come with a grapefruit head for the same price as their one lousy hookah was a no for me. When we called over the girl who was in charge of the hookahs to tell her our hookah wasn’t pulling right, she told us we had to hold the pipe down into the base to make sure that it pulls right. I guess this place would be good for people who have either never had hookah before, don’t go regularly and just want to instagram a picture with it, or don’t know what hookah is. I think I would maybe come back for their food if I was in the area, but I don’t think I’ll ever come back for their hookah.
Great food and service as always
Reasonably priced quality fare ranging from brunch to light suppers.
Other waitpersons greeted us and
checked in not only our waitperson
Food was tasty

The service was good.
We went monday for 10 dollar burger it s come with no cheese you have to pay 2 dollar extra the food was good also the service
Très bon pour le repas!!! Le service était correct, il ne venait pas souvent pour venir voir si tout était ok.
The best chicken Caesar salad I have had in my life!
Despite the place having few patrons, the wait staff was inattentive and couldn't be bothered to take our orders without us flagging them down. Once we finally got our over priced drinks, we had to flag them down an hour later to get a second round.
- I won't be going there again, and I realize now why the place was not busy.
Very nice people. Good service. Good food.
Perfect for our pre-.theater light meal.
Service was good as we had time constraints.
Great food! I have Celiac Disease and I am always nervous about eating out. This place was wonderful! They took real care of me with my food preparation of my dinners. Our waitress, Carly was amazing! The manager, Victor made sure everything was perfect. I also loved their coconut mojitos. I highly recommend this place!
We love this place! The food is delicious. My husband loves the crab cakes. The best he has ever tasted. We also order the herb chicken. I have Celiac Disease and they always are very careful in preparing my meal. Our waitress Carly was amazing. We come back here year after year!
We love this place! Went for Happy Hour and dinner. I am not a chicken eater out, but their herb chicken is the best! I order it every time I go there. I have Celiac Disease and this restaurant is very knowledgeable about cc and gluten free. The chef is great, too!
Rainy night so we had to eat indoors so it was noisy. Food was very good and so was service.
food was good, tables are not too close to passerby on Lincoln Rd. good cocktails.
Lovely server, nice lunch.
The food is very savory and the hookah was maintained professionally!!!
Agradable y muy atentos

Great place for people watching on Lincoln Road!
Amazing food and service. I went for dinner on Saturday and brunch on Sunday.
Great food, service, ambiance! A perfect way to end a day in Wynwood!
Very pleasant. Will definitely go back!
We chose Balans based on its' proximity to the theatre we were going to. We were more than satisfied with the restaurant. We found the food very good and the service was exceptional. The variety and number of selections on the menu was quite impressive. We will return even without a theatre date.
Very good experience... happy hour drink prices were extended for us by manager. Excellent service. Would go again.
