Food has great price quality, service can be better.
Balans is always a good place to go to. You can come her with some friends and have a good appetizer or with some business partners and have a quick lunch.
Happy hour is good and the cocktails served our from a very good level of quality. Overall I would rate this 4/5

Balans is a great place to watch a parade of beautiful people, pets and vehicles!
The food and service were great for a bistro; actually the food and service were 'so' good we had 2 meals at Balans during a recent 5 day stay in Miami. My husband developed an instant addiction to the "Jumbo Breakfast" which is something he would 'never' eat at home and I tried the B'fast Burrito, which was enormous. Another day, I had 2 eggs with all sorts of yummy additions. Balans is open all day so I'm already looking forward to our next adventure where we 'might' actually branch out and try lunch -lol!

We were staying at a nearby hotel and came here on a Friday night. The whole area is jumping with busy restaurants and bars. Its a trendy young upscale area.
We sat outside at high tables under large umbrellas. This let us take in the overall scene and enjoy the outdoor air under the night sky. The contemporary menu had a good variety. We had appetizers, sandwiches, drinks, but passed on the main courses since we were looking for a lighter meal. Food was very well prepared, and delicious. Service was also good.

Stayed in a nearby hotel and was given this recommendation by the hotel staff. Didn't expect much, but went on a Saturday night. The food was actually very good and it was a great nightlife scene.

My husband & I walked to Balans while staying at the New Yorker Boutique Hotel down the
street. There was pleasant outdoor seating and a nice menu and great service. Our food
was very tasty and worth the price. Later on in the evening, a live reggae band performed
making for a pleasant last evening in Miami.
