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.

Very authentic! This place just opened a few months ago and I've been quite a few times. The service and food are always amazing! Def recommend!

My boyfriend and I stumbled randomly upon this restaurant on friday and LOVED it. Perfect place if you are looking to try a few things and get variety. We got a few of the small plates. The fattoush salad was really fresh and tasted great. I also loved the babbagonoush. We didn't have a reservation but sad at the bar. If you want a table, definitely make a reservation since they seemed very busy. They open the front doors so sitting at the bar also was really nice to get fresh air.

I was so excited for a restaurant with a fatoosh salad on the menu to open in this 'hood. I have ordered a few times and the fatoosh salad was so small that it should have been $5 not almost $10. The falafel was also small but very tasty. The hummus was a good size and very good. So, the food is very tasty but the portions are way too small for the price
