Sunday Lunch
Bistro Byronz was born from the simple definition of a true bistro: an unpretentious neighborhood restaurant where friends and families gather day and night to relax, share conversation and enjoy good food and drink at reasonable prices. From that day on, we have prided ourselves in serving deliciously simple, bistro-inspired dishes done the Southern way — comfortable yet special, casual yet elegant, and a bit curious and undefined.

A Southern version of the quaint cafes in Paris, with the sophistication and casual flare of New York City bistros, incorporating the flavors, culture and lagniappe of Louisiana was to us the perfect and distinct approach.

Noise level was higher than usual in a good way. We were there for a band. In our reservation, I requested to be near the band. We were front and center. Yay!

I would recommend your restaurant and your food but I would tell everyone to make sure they are Not sat at the table in the corner between the main dining area and the exit door to the patio area. We were placed there and with a table of 6 sitting to the other end of the room. We were unable to hear each other speak, the talking and laughing of the other table just echoed into our corner making it not only unpleasant when we were hoping to have a relaxing pleasant meal. It was also physically uncomfortable and both had ringing ears when we left. I would suggest making that an area for a service table with water, utensils, menus, etc or just put a pretty plant there. It is definately not condusive to a pleasent eating experience.

We are sorry that you were not happy with your location. Typically that is actually a quiet area to sit. However, it seems that in this situation the addition of the larger table in that room resulted in too much noise. In the future, please notate if you prefer to not sit in that area and we will make sure to find you a table in another area of our restaurant! We hope to see you soon!

I feel like the quality of the food has gone downhill over the last couple years. This restaurant used to be a go-to spot for me, but the last few times I have been, the food was not up to par compared to where it used to be. It now tastes microwaved/pre-made vs. freshly prepared. I'm not sure if this is a result of having too many locations and not having the necessary quality control measures in place, or if it is a lack of involvement in ownership. Whatever the reason, there is no longer anything special or outstanding about this restaurant and it has more of a chain-like feel.

Made reservations in advance for brunch on Mother’s Day but couldn’t get them til 1:45. Food and service were great even though I’m sure the staff were exhausted from a busy morning. Our appetizer and each of our entrees were scrumptious! Great meal

Made reservations here to celebrate graduating from LSU. Showed up to the restaurant at 5:30 only to find out it had closed due to rain. No one ever called to let me know leaving my whole family who had come to town and I without dinner plans.

The bar top tables are incredibly small - hard to fit anything except two plates on. Our server disappeared for a while. The breakfast salad had very little toppings other than feta cheese. Typically love it here, but this was an off morning for sure.

Live music and full house due to it being Valentine’s. Food from the special menu was great. A few minor errors (mostly miscommunication due to noise or the extra diners) but overall a good experience! We will return.

Very disappointed with our visit. The food wasn't good. The shrimp was overcooked. The salad was boring. The pot roast was mediocre. Our server didn't take cues very well. We asked for a private area and also made a reservation with a request for the table next to the bar close to the outside. When we got there the hostess didn't read the notes and tried to seat us in the open dining area. I have been to Bistro many times and didn't have this kind of experience before. Based upon this experience, however, I don't think I'll be back.

There was little attention paid to our table. After 1 hour from placing order was told the kitchen lost the order. At no time did the manager come by to talk to us, he sent a future $5 coupon by the waiter. Considering every other table was waited on, was served quickly, we were an afterthought stuck in the corner. This is not the Bronx that we wanted to dine at. Good luck

I think this is a tougher place to find an entree if you are not into cajun style food or fish based entrees. But the burgers are good and the Vodka Freeze is amazing. The service here was subpar, although we had a bigger table and it was semi busy. Definitely would make a reservation if you're coming on a Saturday night.

Crawfish special was very good. My wife's hamburger was dry, bland and it took over 20 minutes for the waiter to bring mayo and mustard. Manager emailed my wife to apologize.

We're delighted you like our Crawfish Pudding du Pain but are sorry to hear about your wife's hamburger. Please don't hesitate to ask for a manager while you're in the restaurant if any part of your meal is unsatisfactory. We definitely WANT to know and want to make sure we remedy the situation! We're glad a manager reached out to your wife and hope that you will come see us again soon.

My husband and I went for dinner during Restaurant Week. We arrived a little early but were seated immediately. Got happy hour drinks, which was great! The food was superb! I had the pork sucre and my husband had the crawfish bread pudding. Desserts were great too!! We had a very nice time!
