Bite is always delicious, fresh and original. The service is friendly and helpful. We love the patio and bringing our own wine. It’s casual but special too.

As always, dinner was excellent. I was hoping for a steak special but was very happy with the blackened salmon.

We have dined at TheBite for lunch and always enjoyed it. Fat Tuesday we took a friend there for her 84th birthday dinner and we were greatly disappointed. The food was mediocre and poorly presented: a piece of salmon plunked on a plate with over cooked zucchini and over cooked shrimp with grits. The noise level was awful, so we left after shouting at one another. Hopefully, this was an off day, as this restaurant was always a lunch time favorite.

Bite has extremely good food. I have had a good experience every time we have dined there. The spaceis relatively small, and somewhat noisy. Request a table away from the door in the winter time.

Fantastic food using local ingredients. We also love the BYOB policy. I highly recommend the salmon and the green goddess salad dressing!

It can be difficult to get a reservation...but it's worth the wait. The food was delicious! So fresh and tasty. The whipped cream cake is excellent! My only regret is that I forgot to bring my own bottle of wine. I would have stayed a little longer to enjoy the ambiance.

Bite's food was tasty and came out very HOT! That is a big accomplishment for a table of six people and a crowded restaurant. BYOB helped keep costs down and they offered glasses, wine openers, etc. This was a great perk! The desserts were worth having. Because it is a small place with no carpeting and tables close together, it was very noisy for a Saturday night. The restaurant has a casual, homey feel and our waitress was friendly and attentive. This was our first time there. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food and all said they would come back.

We had a great time at The Bite as the service and food were very good. It gave us a homey feeling and all 3 of us liked the selection of apps and entrees. We also had as fine dessert to share. We plan to go back and possibly sit outside in good weather. Great value and not far from I-275 in Milford.

Casual environment, friendly service, good choices and Great freshly-prepared food, super service and BYOB make this place a favorite for us. We three ordered different dishes. Although we had a miss this time —one of us did not enjoy the Cuban pork entree, another ordered the Zymrika and found it immensely satisfying. Removed the smoked salmon from it, however, as the smoking aspect was overwhelming to the dish. I ordered the flank steak strips in the blue cheese and mushroom pasta dish and found it really delicious with perfectly prepared fettucine supporting it. Don’t miss the carrot cake or chocolate decadent dessert, either. When restaurant is full, noise level is very high with nothing to absorb the sound, but it makes it feel all the more chummy.

I have been to Bite a few times for a ladies lunch. The food has always been very tasty. We met some friends for dinner tonight. They had never been before and we had never been for dinner. We enjoyed our time together but there were a few glitches with the meal. They had no iced tea or coffee prepared. We had a 15 minute wait for the drinks. My friend ordered the cheese board as an entree. It didn’t arrive with the other entrees. It took around 10 minutes. We expressed our displeasure and the manager came to the table. He offered us free desert which was very nice and not necessary. The excuse for everything was that they were quite busy(and they were), the manager had to make the cheese board “on the fly”. Not sure what that really means. My friend was very unhappy, she said the cheese was cold and should have been served warm to get the best flavor. Not sure we will go there again. It’s a quirky little place, a different type of menu, good food, normally good service & horrible parking. Only 1 handicapped spot. Most of the parking is way in the back and dimly lighted.

The alligator was really tasty especially with the jam. Tried a bite of my friend blueberry Salomon which was amazing and not too fruity. Had the pasta with salmon that was rich flavorful and comforting for a cold day. To top it off we tried the banana bread dessert. Wow was that good. Don’t skip it. The donuts are good too.

We shared 2 pasta dishes, seemed like fresh pasta, and very well done. The chocolate cake for dessert was great for 2. The place was full on a Wednesday night. Seems like BYOB, with no cork charge, is really popular - every table had a bottle of wine.
Friendly service was all good.
The converted house works well for this place - simple and nicely decorated.
They have 1 table for 8 near the kitchen. We’ll plan to use that!

The local feel and flavor of this restaurant is great! From the comfortable and cozy outdoor seating to the quaint interior decor, there isn’t a bad seat in the house!

The Monte Croatia beignets were a great starter, and whet our appetite for more.

We took out of town guests for our first visit to Bite and they were incredibly impressed with the value of the food and the excellent flavor of the impressive dishes. Many of us ate seafood (from blacked tilapia to Mako shark to maple blueberry glazed salmon). We were all members of the “clean plate club” in the end! No one left even a scrap!

This could easily become our favorite local spot! The atmosphere, the service, The mouth watering food, and the price point were ALL just right!

Really great menu with good food . It was busy so service was ok. We brought our own drinks but we had to ask for a wine opener and glasses. It also took us a while to get water but would definitely eat here again.

This used to be my favorite restaurant to show off to visitors and local friends not yet familiar with it for many reasons. My sister and brother in law visit from Nashville and always want to go to their favorite restaurant when they’re here, which has been Bite. We went last Wednesday evening and were very disappointed in pretty much everything. My daughter had to send her salmon back after we all agreed it tasted really bad.
We all had the feeling that the popularity of Bite could be its undoing. It was clear that the demand was no longer being artfully handled. I’m really sorry to be writing this feedback.
