Peaceful location, good food

Good place for family fine dining. Expensive, but if you are looking for elegant french dining, definitely it is a place to visit. Reasonable wine collection. Not much selection on menu. But cook is willing to receive your recipe if toy can provide one or two days before. No kids menu.

I guess that you cannot please all of the people all of the time, but for my taste and money, La Balance is a little jewel of a place. I particularly like small, neighborhood, locally owned establishments such as La Balance who are out to create a unique and comfortable fine dining experience without breaking the bank. La Balance succeeds... More

I have eaten at nearly the French restaurants within 40 miles of Katy and this is in the top 5. The fact that is in a family suburb means the quality of food and service level is amazing compared to other choices without driving into town or the galleria

Hoping for a good place to eat in Katy we went here for my husbands birthday. It is in a strip shopping center, the atmosphere was perfect for a strip center eatery, plain with stick tables and chairs; this should have been a clue but atmosphere can be overlooked if the food is great. Unfortunately this wasn't the case; the... More

I took our office to lunch for a special occasion. All twelve of us were very happy with their meal and dessert. The most impressive were the fresh sautéed flounder and pork chop. It all came out together and hot . Excellent service. No complaints. Will return soon.

New to Katy, I followed the mostly good reviews to Le Balance - a $200 mistake. Perhaps my first clue should have been an empty restaurant on Saturday night. Service was good but too good for the casual atmosphere of spartan, mismatched decor and a cook who can't. Example: white or black napkin to coordinate with your garments... a nice... More

Let me start by saying my husband said this was the best port chop he has ever had. It was very tender, juicy and seasoned perfectly. We had a little of everything: soup, salad, main course and dessert and everything was so fresh; presentation was pleasing to the eye. For me it was the best prosciutto I've ever had! Most... More

La Balance Cuisine executes the classics—think escargot, foie gras, steak tartare, and boeuf bourguignon—with a modern twist. With a nice selection of wines to complement the fare and platings that rival the fanciest restaurants in town, this quaint spot is perfect for date night. Explore the scope of French cuisine here with dishes such as quail with sausage, risotto with... More

My husband and I just moved here from the Northeast so we are used to dining in fine restaurants in Philadelphia and New York City. We love being in Texas but we were looking for a dining alternative to big texas food. This was a nice surprise. Food was very good. The staff was very attentive and the portions were... More
