Southern
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.

Food & service could be better. Not bad, but definitely room for improvement.

Sunday brunch with a friend I had not seen since right before quarantine. It was a nice, clean environment and I felt like the staff made sure everyone was at a safe distance. They all wore masks, which is awesome and appreciated. I am not really dining in restaurants right now, but I felt very safe at Bistro Byronz.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Bistro Byronz. The Cali Wrap, Debris Chips, and Salmon were all delicious.

Our food was awful, of our party of four three of us ordered the cajun cream pasta with shrimp and it was a disaster. There was absolutely no cream on the pasta, the pasta was severely underdone and the food was salty with zero flavour. Our waiter did his best but i could see his frustration throughout the meal and he was really confused. I don't think i will be dining here again.

Probably one of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had. The hostess was very rude, the only time we saw our waiter was when he took our order, after that we never saw him again until he brought our check. His excuse was that they were very busy, but there were only four tables with guests and we were his only table. I would understand if every table was occupied but they were not busy at all. By the time our food got to us, it was cold and tasted like it had been sitting in a refrigerator for days. I’ll never return to Bistro Byronz.

Our first trip back (after many) since the pandemic. It was always our favorite brunch restaurant in Baton Rouge for ambiance, food, and cocktails. While we understand the effects the pandemic has had on countless businesses both during and after, we were a little disappointed with our long awaited return to Bistro Byronz.

The menu has changed including the deletion of our two very favorite dishes, Poison Acadiana and the Chicken and Dumplings. We ordered grits debris fries as an appetizer, which were good as usual, grits and grillades and Shrimp Acadiana. The grits and grillades had a strong vinegar/bitter note which my fiancé did not like. My Shrimp Acadiana was pretty good, but nearly as good as the catfish Acadiana. There was one mistKe with our order upon being served and our waters were not kept full. I’ve never given the bistro

We had looked forward to having their delicious Pimm’s Cup cocktails, which we learned upon arrival were not available. Regular mimosas were not available or any “complex” cocktails. The frozen mimosa my fiancé chose was rather bland and weak. The offered me a Bloody Mary, which upon arrival at our table, was obvious was seasoned with far too much Worcestershire sauce by its brown color.

We are so sorry to hear about your disappointment with your return to the Bistro. The chicken pot pie is actually very similar to the chicken and dumplings. We hope you might give that a try. We do plan at some point to bring the poisson acadiana back - so stay tuned. It was our first week back post pandemic and we did keep things a little simpler as we were venturing back into unchartered waters. We will continue to bring back more items. We hope to see you again soon.

We originally went to this place for their Old fashion which used to be best in town. Not this time - it was watery and not good.
We tried a few different things but all of them were VERY salty and not consumable. We had to leave hungry!!! However, manager did not charge us for the food. Will not likely go back to this place.

I actually think the food is better at Willow Grove when compared to Gov’t Street. Kennedy is a true asset to the Bistro. Consider the crowd size when regulating the music. The floor could be cleaner. The tables are sticky!

The food was excellent, although the menu was a bit confusing (the “soup-entrée-dessert” option only offered a choice of entrées). Our waitress, however, went above and beyond the call of duty in accommodating our special needs.

Have eaten at BB 5 times. Food is very good, well priced. Charming restaurant. Plenty of ample parking. Variety of menu choices. Service is very good. Have eaten both lunch and dinner. Have also dined at location on Government street which is also quite good.

Food was bland. I had the chicken salad and it definitely didn’t taste fresh. It was very cold like it had been refrigerated for a while. The gumbo was lukewarm like it had only been heated a bit before being served from frozen.

Underwhelming. I let the staff know ahead of time that we were celebrating a birthday(my daughter’s 21st) not only were we seated next to 2 screaming kids but my youngest daughter kept getting elbowed in the head by people passing by(including waitstaff). I love the Mid Ciry locale but we won’t visit Willow Grove location again.

Last minute get together for 10 people on a Sunday morning. A nightmare was expected. Service was quick. Food was outstanding. Drinks were exceptional. Have eaten there before ( back of the stove chicken) and will eat there ( blue cheese mac-n-cheese) again. Prices were reasonable. Service was fast and friendly.

The restaurant was very nice and our table was set up for our group. We had brought a cake for the birthday girl and placed in refrigerator until after we had dinner. The meal was delicious and we had a variety of food items and wine. At end of meal they brought the cake, plates, silverware and knife to cut cake. They even had candles for the cake. Waiter was great and very attentive. We had a great time.
