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.

They changed the menu since our last visit. Some additions look good but they took away some favorites (boo).

The food was mediocre at best. I had the "chicken pot pie" which was some shredded, very tough chicken, very few veggies in a very salty broth over two very stale pieces of biscuit not a "flaky crust" as the menu described. My son had the bbq burger which was very thick which isn't necessarily bad but it lacked flavor and the BBQ sauce had a strange taste to it. We received our appetizer about 20 minutes before our drinks (one which was a beer!) The server did what she could while attempting to wait on half the restaurant and dealing with a slow bar, etc. I have come to accept slower service in the post covid world but the fact that there was a floor manager just walking around and not checking with tables or apologizing for the long wait for drinks, etc. (or better yet, jump behind the bar) was disappointing. We likely won't be back.

In general our meals at Bistro Byronz are quite good. But this particular night the kitchen seemed to be running a bit behind and the coordination with the service was a bit off. The salmon fillet I ordered was a bit overcooked, as well. This was somewhat unusual based on our prior experience so it won't prevent me from returning.

The French dip sandwich had little meat. No flavor except for the garlic bread. The burger was drenched with cheese and fries were thrown on top. Not appetizing. But the service was great and atmosphere comfortable.

I’ve always liked - and still like this restaurant. The service, ambiance, and food have always been very good.

However, although the first two were on point last night, the food was not quite as good as previous visits.

I had to return my entree twice because the rice was undercooked. I finally ordered a different dish which had a good taste and texture but had a bit too much salt. The server never faltered, understood the situation, and took care of it with no issues. Well done there.

we have eaten here several times and have NEVER had service this bad. They neglected to give us menus, take drink orders and greet us for 20 minutes after we were seated. The table usually has a table cloth and was bare and sticky all over. One dish was cold and the other lacked all the ingredients listed on the menu. Drink orders took a VERY long time to come out.

When there was an issue with the seating for my reservation, I received a phone call asking if we were ok with a high top table. I appreciated the communication. The food and atmosphere were great and the mosow mule was on point! Even with homecoming tables everywhere (I am a high school teacher) it was still a pleasant experience.

My food was cold and I had to ask if they could heat it for me. It was my Birthday lunch and I noted that when I booked the reservation. Absolutely nothing was said are done for my special day. I was very disappointed.

I am hearing impaired and requested a corner table which was not what was reserved. The host said that he would try to rearrange things for us and sat us at a very small table for two that he said was all that was available. My son is 6’6” and looked like he was wearing the table. Other parties of two we bring seated at 4 person tables. There was a four person corner table in the room where we were seated. I asked the waitress if we could move to that table and without hesitation she said yes and we did move and were much more comfortable. Obviously the host could have seated us there in the beginning but chose not too even after I asked. With my degree of hearing loss, it is helpful for me to be seated in a corner.

I ordered pork chops-they were delicious. The carrot soufflé was scrumptious. The gravy was tasty. Th rice was “crunchy”-as if it had dried out or been scraped from the bottom of the pan.

This experience will not keep me away. I’ve been a Byronz fan for decades. Just think this should be brought to your attention. Your staff is doing the best they can with staffing shortages. I still enjoyed my lunch.

Everything was great, but our server rarely came to the table, and we had to request our water refills more than twice, and we had to wait a good while before we just found him to ask for our check.

We enjoyed the atmosphere and our server was very kind and attentive. The manager stopped by to check how everything was - which was nice. We had vodka freezes in orange flavor and also in raspberry flavor. Both flavors were great! The blue cheese chips were, as always, fantastic! I enjoyed my chicken Ceasar wrap with fries. My friend enjoyed the steak. She said the flavor was great but it was a little tough. My other friend got a shrimp salad and although she ate the entire salad, she wished the shrimp would have been warm and that they had been seasoned more. Overall it was a wonderful time enjoyed by all!

I live in the neighborhood and go to Byronz quite often.
I made reservations online and when we arrived - we were told that I had made reservations for outside. They showed me their screen and it did say outside but mine screen didn’t indicate that. I told her that we wished to sit inside and she was VERY rude and said she had no place for us inside. The place was almost empty!! She said they were all reserved. Do finally she stomped off and found a big round table for the three of us. I told her that wouldn’t work - ways too big for us. Well after more arguing, etc. she found us and 4 top in the bar. What happened to the customer is right. When we left - there were still several tables available that had not had a sole sitting in them. This was a Wed night and I know you were not as busy as she let on.
Our server - Lilly - was very sweet but got our order wrong and we ended up getting our mashed potatoes for desert.
We overheard the table next to us and she got their table wrong, as well. The food was very good - in fact I was supposed to split and order of pork chops with my 10 year old grandson and ended up eating both pork chops and the green beans and most of the mashed potatoes I ordered. Haha I hate to complain but like I told my friend - if this were our first time at your restaurant - I doubt I would return.

Always enjoy a visit to Bistro Byronz.

We had our usual order of Blue Cheese Chips to start. I opted to try their Chambord flavored Vodka Freeze, and it will now be my usual. Their standard vodka freeze is delicious, but the added raspberry flavor really turns it up a notch.

Any time you can get their carrot soufflé, get it. The Les Pork Chops plate is one of my favorite entrees, especially because it comes with the carrot soufflé.

Awesome, our server did impeccably. I would/ and do recommend this restaurant whenever I have friends come into town. On this night I was on a date, she loved the ambiance and the feeling of the restaurant, but unfortunately her catfish was a bit on the cold side. Other than that everything else was spectacular. Once again may I say our server was awesome!

It took a little longer than usual for someone to get to us; but, once she did, she was good! The food was exquisite; my catfish with crawfish on top was as good as ever. My wife’s shrimp and seafood bisque was great, but her portion was skimpy. Plus, my wife’s water wasn’t refilled. Otherwise, it was good.

Good to be there in a less restricted environment. I had the Shrimp Louie salad which is a great value for the amount of shrimp.
However, someone was generous with the salt. Almost to the very bitter point. Suggest the chef check the ingredients for taste.
Won’t keep me away.
