Upscale French restaurant in the upscale Zona T. It's on the expensive side with an upscale crowd that expects quality for their meals. Excellent service and modern decor makes this a great option if you feel like French in Bogota.

Went for date/dinner Really good restaurant serving excellent steaks. Sauces are delicious and rich. The mousse au chocolat was also really great! Will definitely go again!

Highly recommended for groups and client meetings. The menu offers a lot of options. My preferred ones are the hot brie salad, the house pate, the pepper steak, and the duck. The wine selection is very good and reasonably priced (you can find very good value for money offers). In terms of seating location, try to get a table close... More

Ok this is truly a great restaurant. Highly recomended. Order the ceviche as a starter, which was great and then ordered a mustard beef with french fries. French fries are incredible better than mc donalds. And with the mustard sauce was supperb. Recomended

Super delicious French restaurant. The service is not the kindest but is quick. It is a bit expensive so have your wallet prepared. I had a ceviche and for dessert a creme brûlée... Both are easily the beat i have had. Super recommended!

Balzac is a restaurant that doesn't disappoint. My family has eaten there many times. One of my favorite appetizers is pate topped with carmelized onions, served with toasted, seasoned bread. Another favorite is a main dish, halibut steamed with vegetables a bag. A side order of creamed spinach completes this mouth-watering experience. Yesterday my family shared two desserts, neither of... More

Harry Sasson and Leo Katz's restaurants never disappoint in decoration, menu or food quality. Balzac is more on the expensive side (unlike Club Colombia) of the road. I highly recommend the Entrecote de Paris.

This a typical french bistrot, a piece of good french food and warm atmosphere at a popular quarter in Bogotá. Balzac offers at reasonable price, high gastronomy options. I ever recommend desserts, the very top in any good french restaurant.
