    They sat us outside with no option to sit inside. The waitress came by twice and was too aggressive about watching us pay and the tip amount. The food is over priced and I ended up paying 67.00 for avocado toast and two mimosas. Absolutely a tourist trap.

    The food wasn't great. Risotto tasted metallic and the branzino was subpar. Ordered a spicy margarita but it had zero spice. Overpriced food

    We had a great time and a very nice brunch at Balan’s in Miami on New Year’s Day. The food was great, service was excellent and the environment -outside dining- was perfect. We could not recommend a place more enthusiastically.

    We prepaid a Holiday menu with three courses. We were surprised to find out that most of the menu items required additional payment which was not clear when we booked the experience. The prepayment included 20% service fee and this was also the case when the final check was presented for the extra items. Service was rushed and the noise level was high. The restaurant was almost empty but the employees were very loud talking amongst themselves. Food was nothing to write home about. Very poor experience overall.

    I had high expectations when I went to this restaurant with my friend. The place looked clean and organized but the food was HORRIBLE. First I asked for eggs Benedict and the egg yolk was hard when is supposed to be runny, second we paid 13 DOLLARS for a "natural juice"; what a disappointment when our server brought us two juice bottles that I could just buy at any store, at least she could have put it in a glass right?? Now lets talk about our waitress, the servers in this place have 18% gratuity added to your check so lets say the customer service there is not good because they know they have their tip included anyways. We had to STARE at our waitress so she could notice us. I am DEFINITELY not coming back again. Very expensive and not a pleasant experience at all.

    Server was great..funny, attentive etc. Food was not great. Crab cake didn’t really seem to have any chunks of crab. Salad with salmon came 10 minutes apart..salmon first…them after asking the third time the salad ca,w. Carbonara was soup. Little flavor. They tack a 18 percent gratuity on it and then the waiter says that’s not for him but the other staff.. Nice location. Go have a drink but I won’t eat there again.

    At noon on a Saturday it took 15 minutes to get a server at our table after we were seated. One actually looked at us and walked away. Someone else came over. Chicken breast was totally over cooked. Restrooms doors are unmarked as to mens, ladies or other.

    Although it was a Mother's Day menu with limited offerings, the food was okay but not worth the price. Also, the drinks were extremely watered down. Perhaps during normal operations it's better.

    Food was expensive and it was horrible. For that price point I expected something I could eat without making a face while trying to pass down the food.
