Cool décor, has 2 levels with the balcony upstairs. A bit warm for outside dining so went to the main room on the first floor. A bit surprised on NOLA food choices for Lauderdale. Had the jambalaya while others picked chicken & dumplings. Food was...More

Brunch for 12 just perfect! Everyone enjoyed their entrees and bottomless drinks. Our server Brianna was attentive and personable. Music by The Details Trio made our day complete.

We had the opportunity to have a super big party on Sunday at the balcony. The place was packed I had a DJ mixing live and the food was out of this world so was the service. If you’re looking for something to do on...More

Attended The Balcony for a birthday dinner for a friend this past Saturday. It wasn't our first choice but original restaurant couldn't get it together to have a table for us. So in that sense - it was great they were able to get a...More

First let me say that we went to The Balcony with a little trepidation based on some of the reviews. I think these were probably related to the newness of the restaurant having just opened in May and we are certainly not in agreement with...More

First visit here and as you walk into the downstairs dining you definitely feel the NOLA vibe. The decor is really well done, very pleasing to the eyes. ALL of the staff are really approachable, kind, considerate of one another, and the waiter was beyond...More

My review only covers the second floor where the bar is so this might not apply to the restaurant downstairs. The Balcony is HUGE, nicely decorated and fun!!! The food is good enough for a bar/lounge but not great! The guy at the bar was...More

Go there for fun, lively people, drinks, music. Don't go there JUST for the dining. Food, while acceptable, is not for those that REALLY KNOW CAJUN FOOD OR EVEN NOLA STYLE CUISINE. Everything is TAPAS style. Smaller portions, ideal if you order some 4-6 dishes...More

The place is cool, looks great. We ordered chicken and sausage ('Shreveport') gumbo, steak and eggs, and a burger. My personal opinion is that gumbo portion was quite small, more akin to cup rather than a main course. Gumbo was okay, not great, but we...More
