    I go to Balos often, and this is the first time where the service was detrimental to the experience, I understand the current staffing issues and hopefully it is an exceptional circumstance.

    We had a group reservation to celebrate a birthday and overall the experience flopped for us. The food is delicious and pricey, but the overall service and attention to detail doesn’t make you feel welcome. A few of our orders were forgotten and the service offered was a bit on the “rougher” side. I think what really left us with a negative image for the night was that the waitress had mixed up all 8 of our receipts. And so, there was a huge confusion and having to transfer and replace the items onto someone’s else’s receipt. That end of the night experience was stressful for the workers having to fix these mistakes and I guess left them on edge, which reflected on how we were spoken and dealt with. We helped rectify the confusion and left. I was so excited to try this restaurant which is why I chose it for my mothers birthday, but I really don’t think I’ll be coming back. You don’t really feel welcome and the ambience feels a bit intrusive. The food is good, but for that hefty price I would recommend going to another nice fancy restaurant - where your experience will match the price and quality you pay for.

    The food, service and ambiance was excellent. We all enjoyed our meals which included appetizers, mains and one hearty soul was able to handle dessert as well. The wine list could use work though. Understandably it is very heavy on Greek wines which may not appeal to everyone. The portions are large (we didn't really need all the food we ordered) but our server directed us away (thankfully) from ordering even more which was appreciated. It may be one the expensive side but the quality of the fish certainly merited the prices and so there was true value there. I was nervous about booking on open table as I prefer to speak directly with the establishment but obviously the system works as the restaurant had read and accommodated my special request without further discussion.

    Top notch cooking. The food was really good. So rare to have a properly prepared Greek salad, delicious! Sea bass and steak were excellent. Even the roasted potatoes were amazing. Only criticism was the side of vegetables was uninspiring: steamed carrots and broccoli. Could be so much better

    Our first trip to Montreal, and we are so happy we dined at Balos! The service is incredible. From the water boy, to the server to the Maitre'd, we were well taken care of. The pacing of the meal was just perfect. Drinks, short wait; appetizers, short wait; main course, short wait; and coffee with complimentary fruit platter. Our family especially loved the oysters and grilled fish. Definitely try this restaurant.

    Matthew was a joy to meet and have him attend to our meal. He recommended the Filet Mignon which was a 5 star experience. He Tatsiki was a great appetizer. Generous portion which was loaded with flavor. Some of the best I’ve had outside of Greece. Desert was a generous portion of the Orange cake. Very good. We will be back.

    The food and service was excellent. Staff is very competent and friendly. We had fried calamari and Octopus for appetizers, both delicious. We were all meat eaters so we had the rib steak, lamb chops and filet mignon all delicious. Desserts were baklava and cheesecake. Both excellent. Cheesecake for sure can be share as it is a very healthy portion. It is pricey, but the food is really good.

    The food and service were great. We really enjoyed. It started off a little disorganized - despite our reservations they seemed to be without a table to seat us. It was Grand Prix weekend and Father’s Day. So all the restaurants were at capacity. After a little wait they managed to put a proper table together for our party of 8 and the dinner was great !

    The waiter was slow and appeared disinterested. We waited forever just to give our order. The black shirted sous waiters were simply inadequate. They could be a help to the waiters, but were not especially as they did not glance at our table. We then advised the staff that one person had to catch a plane. That seemed to speed things up a little. Food was OK. I found the scallops too salty and far too much oil floating around the plate. The scallops were too small and too sandy and the potatoes too oily. The plate was not appealing. I had recommended this restaurant to my friends and had been at Balos many times-always with pleasure. This is a downward trend in competence and taste.
