    I was at Balos for lunch with a friend. We had the lunch special - soup and salad with smoked salmon. It was delicious . Service was friendly and attentive. Really a treat for a mid week lunch out!

    The ambience is lovely - warm and inviting with dimmed lights, beautiful votives at the tables and music at just the right volume to allow for conversation. Service was friendly and attentive most of the time. Staff were knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful when asked for recommendations. I would highly recommend this place for anyone interested in a romantic evening out. If you’re a fish and seafood lover, you should definitely give it a try.

    Enjoyed the corner table at the front of the restaurant. Nice relaxing piano music playlist was appreciated. Not too busy, perhaps because it was a Tuesday night. But this was perfect for our mood. Service was attentive and polite. Waiter knew his wines. Doggie bag was offered. Food was very good.

    We have been to Balos a number of times and the service is always amazing. It is refreshing to see people that actually enjoy their jobs and make you feel comfortable. The food is always great and you can have a conversation without yelling over the music. We will be back this summer! Happy New Year to the staff at Balos keep up the good work and may 2024 be even better.

    C'était ma première expérience chez Balos et ce ne sera pas la dernière. Je n'hésiterai pas à recommander votre établissement. Service tout sourire, excellente nouriture. Je n'avais pas terminé mon assiète mais il n'était pas question je je quitte sans le "doggy bag". Merci pour cette belle expérience culinaire.
