I do not think I posted about this, but when my wife tried Balkan Diner maybe 1 year ago, it was awful: service unbelievably bad, food mediocre or worse, etc. Boy, have they turn it around! My wife tried it again on Greys Ferry Avenue twice and each dinner was better than the last. The food is authentic (as authentic as Balkan food can be, of which each cuisine has its own take on regional specialties, such that Balkan's Serbian specials are easily recognizable to my Romanian wife). But the food had that "home cooked" flavor in a good way, and I cannot recommend this place too highly, particularly if you tried it a while ago and were underwhelmed.
