Husband and I wanted to try a nice place that catered to outdoor dining. This place did not disappoint. Plenty of space between tables and really cozy backyard ambiance. Food was delicious , definitely try the lamb entrees. Fresh flatbread was a winner with beef pepperoni! Will be returning soon!

There isn't a better place to dine outdoors on a lovely evening. Beautiful trees, nice lighting, charming building and surroundings. Small but nice menu. BYO or they have local beer and wine.

The food was outstanding and the ambience was perfect. We were looking for a an outdoor BYOB dining experience. This restaurant was all we could ask for, although the service seemed a little off. Perhaps our server was new. That being said, we will definitely return.

Food,setting and service were all A-1. We rarely go out to eat given since COVID. And my partner is an excellent t cook. But Byrsa Bistro reminds me that great food in a beautiful setting still exists.

We waited for over 20 minutes and no server ever came to our table. There were only four or five other tables with guests seated; so the restaurant was not too busy. We have been here before and loved it. This evening was such a disappointment. When we told them we were leaving since no one ever came to the table, the three staff looked dumbfounded.

Quint Restaurant in a prefect country side setting. Beautiful outdoor garden dining with limited menu. Great Mediterranean food, service, limited wine and beer list. One can take your own bottle as well. Worth a visit at least once.

The food was delicious. The quaint old building is beautiful and it made for a fun dining experience. For the price of the meals, I felt that they could have served table bread and maybe served salads with the meals. We had two meals (excluding veggies), one plain pizza, and a bottle of wine for around $150 and while the food was good, I’m not sure that portion size or the quality demanded these prices. However, with the uniqueness of the quaint old building and the tasty meals, we would definitely return on an occasional basis.

Loved this place! Food was excellent! Parking was a bit crowded as the overflow parking area was closed, but no big deal. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars overall was because the chairs at our table were very uncomfortable. We’ll definitely go back!

Excellent ambiance in a historic building. Outdoor dining at dusk would be amazing; we ate inside with a small group of friends on a chilly evening. Everyone's food was excellent; portions were large and best of all, this is a BYO so we could enjoy our own wine. Service was attentive and knowledgeable; food came out a perfectly relaxed pace. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a charming place for a romantic dinner.

Food is decent. I did catch 2 mistakes on our check. One dish was over charged and the drinks were changed twice. $28 over charged total. The waitress did apologize but I am not convinced it was a honest mistake.
