    Average food (bland salad dressing, no pepper on table or offered) service needs improvement (waited for milk for coffee, had to ask twice), price could be better (or portions bigger), space has no real character (multifunction uses it seems).

    The place was nice. We saw the reviews and really excited about eating here. Since we arrived we did not know who was our server always someone different came to the table. We order a coffee and it was cold. Limited tea flavors and food was very normal.

    Nestled in the heart of Brickell, Miami, Balans restaurant offers a dining experience like no other. What stood out to me the most was the strategically exposed terrace, providing a panoramic view that immerses you in the vibrant city atmosphere. The terrace allows you to savor your meal outdoors while people-watching, adding a special touch to every visit. Balans goes the extra mile by accommodating different preferences, allowing cigar enthusiasts to indulge in a good smoke on the terrace. Beyond its prime location, Balans impresses with a diverse menu catering to all tastes. From classic dishes to innovative creations, the restaurant's commitment to quality shines through in every fresh ingredient and impeccable presentation. In summary, Balans in Brickell is more than just a dining spot; it's a complete experience that blends excellent cuisine, an unbeatable location, and the freedom to savor life. Whether you seek a laid-back outdoor meal or a more sophisticated dinner, Balans has something special to offer.

    The service was amazing and both the host and waitress treated us great. My only complain is that we were a party of 7 and they had a service charge of 18%, and I don't mind tipping 18% because it was deserved but then when paying, I was asked to tip, so I was unsure what the service charge was. I think it was the tip but if it isn't going to the waiter and staff, then I'm not really liking that feature because it should be the tip going to the waiter not just a fee because we are 7 people.

    Not the French brasserie experience I was hoping for. Feels rather touristy. Food is ok, nothing amazing. Service is kind, but slow. Prices are too high for what it is. Unfortunately can’t recommend. Better Miami options for brunch.
