Unless you are very familiar with Lebanese or Mediterranean food, come and be prepared to take your time to review the menu. It is extensive with unique and delicious food selections. All sound wonderful and healthy.

Love this place. Based on reviews, visited Baladi. OMG. authentic fresh organic local food. The Chef cooks from his heart - it was some of teh BEST Mediteranean food that I have EVER eaten, in fact, none of the dishes that we ordered had ever been tasted before, the server suggested some and we went with them..incredible..wish we lived closer...

We had been to Baladi the prior Sunday, but chose it again for our Valentine's date night! The hostess and waitstaff are engaging and really attentive, and the restaurant is friendly and cozy. Their vegan meals are absolutely delicious, and we are addicted to the Ful appetiser. Baladi is one of our favorite restaurants anywhere!!!

The food was great. It was a late lunch/early dinner for Valentine's Day. The service was outstanding. I had the Seafood Platter.

Ate here with my coworkers, one of whom is Palestinian. He said the food reminded him of the way it is cooked in Palestine. I thought the lamb tasted great and not everyone knows how to cook lamb well. It was tender, moist, and seasoned well. The others had the swarmeh (spelling?) plates and loved every bite. I also enjoyed... More

Our second visit to Baladi was even better than the first. The Mezze Platter for two appetizer was ample and diverse. The muhamarrah was the best I've had outside of the Middle East. The falafel however was overcooked. The Greek style baklava was flaky and tasty. Give this gem a try. DonQ

I love the food here. Service might vary a bit depending upon which server you work with. But the food is great, servings large, price is good. Well worth the occasional wait. Try the grilled Halloumi Cheese Caprese.

My wife loves Arabic and Mediterranean foods. I suggested We try this restaurant as it seemed to suit her style. The waitress was very nice when we got there. That was our highlight. We waited quite a while while she catted at the counter before coming back to take our orders. We placed our orders and iced tea. The tea... More

Hello sir, I am sorry to hear you were disappointed with your visit. We do make all of our food in the house and use quality ingredients. Our iced tea is not sweetened and has sage, mint, chamomile, rose petals, anise and fennel seeds so I can understand how it may tasted different. Again I am sorry and I hope... More

Been looking for a great Mediterranean restaurant in VB, finally found it! Fresh, well seasoned and healthy food. They use quality ingredients and offer many vegetarian and gluten free options. The service was great and the price was right. The fresh made lemonade was awesome. I've traveled all around the Mediterranean and this food is spot on! Will be going... More
