    Fantastic

    I love the Home made bread they serve at the restaurant. Everything is fresh and consistent. Try Lahme Bajin or the lamb chops. i think they have the best humus in town.

    Best hummus in the city

    I had dinner at Balade last week, and it was a great experience. From our hospitable hostess to the charmful decor and atmosphere, I found great energy to this place. The service by our Brazilian waitress was excellent, never obsequious yet timely and smily. And as far as the food goes, and though I'm no Lebanese food expert, everything we tried was good, from the hummus, labneh to the pizza and the mixed grill. Definitely recommend the place!

    Wonderful food!

    Kafta Pizza was great, the mixed grill was very good and we tried 2 starters which were also excellent. I live on the upper east side and have it delivered

    Great food, slow but amiable staff, fairly priced, loud

    Granted Thursday nights tend to be busy, but the waits here (for a table, the food, checks to be reconciled) seemed painfully long. The food is excellent - fresh, honest Middle Eastern. Adequate portions. Reasonably priced. The room is small and loud. Will come back - but maybe when it is less crowded.

    Fresh, Delicious, and Mouth Watering

    Eat here if you like Mediterranean or Lebanese food. They have wonderful tabouli and pizzas. Watch out for the garlic sauce (I LOVED it) they serve with some of the entrees, I was emitting garlic the rest of the night. Great serivce and atmosphere. Will be back.

    The Charming Balade!

    Ambling about in our neighborhood, we accidentally came across a gem of a restaurant called Balade. Once inside the door all our skepticism vanished. A relaxed decor of soft tile and brick walls studded by Cedar of Lebanon tree trunks -- enhanced by subtle lighting -- the ambiance had fully charmed us before we even sat down. The menu had so many unusual variations of familiar Middle Eastern fare, it was hard to choose, even with the amiable waiter elaborating in detail. There were the Pita Pitzas, Shawarma platters, toasted Sandweechets, and exotic Mezzas like Shankleesh (aged cheese with zaatar), Sambousiks (pastry pockets filled with lamb and pine nuts) and, of course, the Lebanese national dish, Kebbeh Kras, a blend of beef and cracked wheat. Wine offerings ranged from Napa Valley through Spain, Italy, Greece to Lebanon's own Bekaa Valley. I always thought I was a maven on food of the Levant, but certainly I'll be returning to this fine restaurant to partake in more of the advanced courses in Lebanese cuisine.

    a lovely place

    I went to Balade with a friend who knows middle eastern food and is usually very critical but when we ate she hummed with pleasure. I didn't love the cracker-like pitzas, but the mezze, salads and freshly baked bread were all delicious and the service couldn't have been sweeter. I can't wait to go back.
