This local restaurant excels and can come up trumps with great meals. A highlight of the trip from the UK for my family makes us realize how fortunate we are to have such a local gem. The gammon like Berkshire pork was delightful and the Filet Mignon again was excellent and properly rare as asked for. Super starters too.

Went to the restaurant last night after reading good customer rating and review in TripAdvisor website. High hope but very disappointed with the pricing range for a French restaurant. It is one man show upfront as receptionist, waiter and bus boy in a high price French restaurant . This is not what I expected. The waiter do the best he... More

We went last Friday for dinner and all enjoyed it. Tried the chicken cordon bleu for the first time and was impressed. My sister had the entrecôte and frites and loved it

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.

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
