Back after some time. There is now a tuna appertiser which is simply fantastic. I can't recall the name but I recommend asking for it. The tuna is marinated in a house recipe the chef explained to us. It is raw served with avocado and delicious.

I'd heard about the wonderful cuisine at La Balance from family and friends, so decided to celebrate our anniversary - and I was glad and appreciative that the recommendations were on the mark. Though located in a small shopping strip center and has a casual appearance from the lot, the cuisine and the service was top notch. Wonderful meal options... More

If you truly want to feel like your away on vacation having a fabulous meal ,this is your place. The food is excellent and service is some of the best in town . Real waiters not youngsters learning . The chef, who also owns the place will meet all your expectations . A great wine list , reasonably priced food... More

Fine dining in Katy, who knew? If you haven't been to La Balance please treat yourself. Casual yes but with impeccable white tablecloth service. Rare to find something of this caliber in Katy. Food is French but with some subtle twist and the chef makes some remarkable off the menu items. Last night a shrimp appetizer that was just off... More

This is absolutely the best restaurant in Katy. The reason it is not at the top of TripAdvisor's list is that it is pricey. So do not take your kids there.

The glitch definitely was a once off. Returned again for a family dinner. The high standards were attained as expected and the food was excellent. The filet steaks really are one of the best in Katy if not the best and great value too.

Still a favourite, but this time it just wasn't the same high standard we have come to love and expect. The appertiser were not served together and my Chicken Cordon Bleu was dry, although the mustard sauce was very tasty. It just needed more of it. The filet steak was as tasty as expected. The portion of mushroom ravioli is... More

Our main home is in France, so we have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while. We dined here on a Wednesday evening, and were the only people there. That having been said, the food was very good; perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. It was definitely very French. We chose the petit Chablis to go with our meal... More

Came as a quest of the "Cinco Ranch Foodie Club" and participated with about 22 guests on sampling some of the chef's choices. All the food was served quickly and tasted superb, with excellent service to match. Both my wife and I enjoyed the experience and will definitely be back. I would recommend La Balance to anyone, whether a special... More

I enjoy this restaurant each time I return. The fillet is one of, if not the best in Katy. Service is always special and there is extensive wine list to accompany the dishes. A nice environment to make it a special dining experience. I wish they served brandy.
