Used to be one of our favorites. Sat at the bar for at leadt 10 minutes without being acknowledged while bartender conversed with people next to us. Food was still good although the selection is not as it used to be. Steaks were undercooked as we asked for medium rare. Will probably not return. The dining room waitstaff was great. Sorry the owner just made excuses for the bartender.
Always loved Balloons I’ve eaten here on a handful of occasions it’s a hometown favorite to me. They do a lot of catering and I send the guest of my vacation rental properties here We ate Shrimp Linguini with mushrooms and Sun dried tomatoes in an Alfredo cream sauce and the young Lady with me had Steak Diane both were specials of the day were excellent and were large portions enough for leftovers or a second meal.
This used to be my favorite restaurant in Auburn but the last three times have been awful. Balloons has a great menu and specials but they cannot execute on it. On our most recent visit our three entrees were an embarrassment. The chicken parmesan tasted funny, could not really but my finger on it but everyone agreed it was not good. My tenderloin tips asiago was ok at best. Asiago has a strong flavor and it was barely noticeable in the dish.My daughter's chicken francaise was devoid of flavor and tasted plain. She informed the waiter who took the dish and said the owner would try it. He brought the dish back in a to go box and said the owner tasted it and it was fine. GROSS. YOU JUST LET SOMEONE ELSE EAT OFF A DISH YOU RETURNED TO US. They did not offer to recook it, replace it another item or take it off the bill. This restaurant has gone down hill and we will never eat here again.
Sevice is always pleasant. We were sat right away even though we were early for our reservations. Always good food. We try new items each visit. We are loving there Beets!
Some of the best dishes in the city, no commercialized reheated frozen food. Authentic fresh dishes. And great people
