    Mothers Day dinner. Overall good experience. Service was slow but they were short staffed and really tried to give good service. Desserts were not great but everything else was great. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and bbq flatbread pizza.

    This is the second time we attempt to eat at this restaurant. The first time after making the reservation days in advance we received a call from the restaurant the night before letting us know they had a private event and they had to cancel our reservation. The second time was even more fun. We reserved through OpenTable for brunch on Good Friday several days in advance. And we drove from Philadelphia at the time of the reservation to find the restaurant was closed. No warnings. No one answered the phone when we called the restaurant. We were really excited to try this restaurant but sadly we won’t be trying again. And I advise anyone interested to triple check before driving to this place and to keep their expectations low for any reservation they make in this place.

    Byrsa Bistro in Glen Mills is a wonderful BYOB that also offers select wine and cocktails. The Mediterranean inspired cuisine is delicious and is served by friendly, respectful staff. The paella was a favorite with our group. Gluten free and vegetarian options are available. On site parking is to the side of this beautiful building. I will return soon.

    The food was really good. I would definitely go back. The service was very attentive. The only problem there was a back up in the kitchen and it took extremely long for our entre to come out. However , this would not deter me from returning. They had a lot of different items on their menu that I would like to try.

    My sisters and husbands took me here for my birthday. Everything was top notch, the good, and the decor. It is such an intimate setting and with Omnicron the tables are well spaced from other guests. There is a limited menu but everything is delicious. We had 2 chicken tortalinis, a lamp chop, salmon and one other pasta dish. Everything was fabulous and all loved their meal. I will definitely Italy recommend to my friends!

    This restaurant is a Little gem hidden away on Glen Mills road with a warm and cozy atmosphere. Our waiter was very friendly and very attentive to our needs. We started with a Caesar salad and a beet salad which were delicious and so fresh. The best however was the main course which all three of us had which I know is boring but we didn’t regret it. The entree was chicken tortellini and it was the best we ever had. I can’t rave enough about the sauce since it was so light, creamy and perfectly seasoned. While the portions were a little on the small side it was so tasty and delightful I went to go back and have it again. For our last course we shared the chocolate mousse which was the perfect ending to a Wonderful meal. This restaurant is a true treasure and we will definitely tell all our friends about it. Kudos to this wonderful chef and staff for a delightful evening.

    The food was mostly good and it was nice to see a menu with some less-usual Mediterranean fare. Loved the appetizer Mediterranean sampler. Everyone who had a pasta dish really enjoyed it. I ordered a salad with a grilled chicken breast added on top and I found the chicken to be dry. Our server always seemed impatient and actually pulled one plate away before the person was finished eating. Most importantly, in this day and age, it's surprising to see a restaurant that is not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The entrance was difficult to find in the dark, and my mother, who uses a walker, had a difficult time negotiating the deteriorating brick walkway and the two steps up to the rear (locked) entrance, which someone had to come open for us.
