The staff were very kind but this was the poorest meal we have ever been served in terms of food quality, presentation and taste! Extremely disappointed!

My wife and I went back to Lord Byron on a Saturday a few weeks back and was quite impressed. The food was excellent and the wait staff attentive. However, we just returned a week ago on a Tuesday and were totally dissatisfied. The lettuce in my wife's salad was so brown it must have been sitting out since the weekend. And our rack of lamb appeared to have been cooked over a grill instead of roasted as we've normally seen. Our waiter was friendly but that really didn't offset the poor food. At this point I'm reluctant to even go back on a weekend. I prefer restaurants who take pride in their food all the time and not just when the prices are higher.

Anniversary Dinner

Haven't been to this restaurant in 20 years wanted a lovely restaurant for our Anniversary dinner. The restaurant we wanted was totally booked, so we decided to try Lord Bryons again. From beginning to the end of the evening we were both pleasantly surprised and pleased with the evening. The food and service was excellent. The sons would make the father very proud. Defiantly will go back another time Thank you Lord Byron for making our evening very special

Chateaubriand Bouquetier for two

From beginning of dinner to the end, the service was exceptional. I highly recommend the Merlot, smooth body and went well with our meal. I love when Ceasar salad is prepared table side, it was creamy and delicious. The Chateaubriand, served table side, was very tender and cooked to perfection, accompanied with sauteed mushrooms were exceptional. The vegetables, broccoli, cauliflower and asparagus were cooked perfectly, not overcooked or undercooked like other restaurants. There was really no need for the potatoes as there was so much food. For anyone looking for a nice evening out I recommend Lord Byron. A must try at least once. We have tried many fine dining restaurants and this one is high on our list. We will definitely be going back. It was a relaxed, cozy atmosphere.

Best beef ever

If you live anywhere in the Golden horseshoe, and have not visited here, you are missing out. Chateaubriand so tender, could have cut with a butter knife. Have had beef from east coast to vegas, and this was the best. Price is good value for the quality especially since included with the main meal was bread, olives, pickles,cheese, and soup of the day. Best onion rings ever, vegetables delicious. As soon as we sat down, they brought out the breads & accompanyments. Can't say anything bad about any of the food served. Billy our waiter, was great guy & enjoyed meeting him too. Will definitely return.

valentines dinner - best ever!

Lets just put it this way. Dont always trust the big names like The Keg, or Ruth Chris etc... this place is amazing. By far the best steak I've probably have had yet, and I love my steaks. I usually get them done medium. It was done perfect! And it had absolutely no FAT! My girlfriend had the same thing as me and she loved hers also. I highly recommend going here people, you wont be disappointed. It took a bit for the food to come out, probably 50 minutes. But that could of been due to the high volume of people that night. But trust me, it was well worth the wait when the food came out =) Hope you all go!

Quality, Quick, Quiet

We had a booth and didn't have to wait long for any course. Each portion was a good size and freshly prepared. Almost every table was full and enjoying conversation and yet there was no noise - none from a kitchen, serving dishes, next tables, etc. The cheque arrived when we asked so we weren't rushed. The only complaint might be the extra large GMC 'trucks' in the parking lot straddling two spaces - but that's not the restaurant.

This place is great finnally a romantic decour with a great fireplace, the wood is amazing. The service was perfect real waiters not some kid who cares more about what he is doing later that night then providing great sevice. I found the waiter was freindly and found that the Lord Byron has been around for 30 years under the same ownership that is staying power. The food ceaser salad made from scratch at the table and the best steaks in the area. we will be back

My husband (34 and I'm 28) had reservations there for valentine's day, this was our first visit, we found the service to be slightly pretentious and it was slow on that particular night. Our menus didn't arrive until about 20 - 25 minutes after we sat down, we didn't care as we were in no rush, but there seemed to only be one waiter there, an elderly gentleman. The restaurant could use a bit of renovating, it had a very old feel to it, perhaps it's the ambiance they were trying to achieve, our dinners came with the soup of the day, which was supposed to be beef and vegetables, there was neither beef or vegetables in the soup, it was more of a broth, that was disappointing. The steaks were excellent, but the vegetables that came with the entrees (only carrots) weren't cooked enough, I like them crispy, but they almost tasted like they were raw. The steak itself was delicious and cooked to order. I didn't care for the cheesecake, it wasn't good at all. We might go again, but there are too many new restaurants out there to try, this one wasn't necessarily a favorite per se.

This was a fabulous choice for a romantic dinner for two. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The plate of olives, pickles, and feta cheese with warm garlic bread placed on the table moments after was sat down was perfect. The garlic mashed potatoes were increidble (loaded with roasted garlic cloves) and a pound of Alaskan King Crab didn't leave room for dessert.

Having read the reviews here and upon recommendations from friends we decided to celebrate our anniversary here. The decor is decidedly retro but appropriately so. The service is professional, polished and warm. The steaks were perfectly prepared and having the pepper steak prepared tableside certainly added drama--and the suggestion to use some of the sauce on my wife's order was a welcome touch. This is a classic restaurant and one which we will certainly frequent.

Forget the rest, this is the place to go, people is what make a resturant great, and everyone there is there to make an enjoyable experiance for you. Its so nice to see there is a establishmnt that knows how to grill a steak as my husband likes, all to often in most resturants, when he orders a steak pittsburg or chicago style, he incontures the face of a un educated server, but not here. Service is the best, Martin cooks the beef perfect, nice work Frank and Chris, keep up the tradition.

Simply put, the best steakhouse in the golden horseshoe! We are always greeted at the door by the owners and taken right to our table to enjoy the garlic bread and relish tray right away - and it's refilled by the owner's wife all the time! We tend to make dinner a whole evening's entertainment, so we talk and chat and have cocktails and then order well past most others who come and go throughout the evening. We stay late and make this a wonderful evening. Our choices always include the tuxedo'd waiters (like Sam and Jimmy) making tableside fare and we're visited regularily by both Frank (the owner) and Chris (his son) as we wend our way thru what can only be described as the best dining experience possible. Try the Shrimp a la Byron for a seafood appetizer - it's so so good! We love the food which is so very well prepared and the wine selections are marvellous too! This is a special treat for us and we are treated so very well that it makes just hearing the name of the restaurant bring a full smile to our faces. Hat's off to the best restaurant around!

New Years dinner with hubby was supposed to be romantic and it was awful. The hostess was complaining loudly about no shows and then about people taking their time over their dinner. We felt like cattle being rushed so they could get the next couple seated. We were fed and out of there in 45 minutes. We won't do that again.

Very good service, friendly and engaging, however for top-dollar pricing the food was disappointing. The French onion soup and T-bone special were served luke warm, not hot. The baked potato was served in tin foil, very unusual in top restaurants and no wine list to speak of. The general consensus at the table was the food was good, not great and therefore not worth the prices being charged. In closing, the prices were in line for what you see in other upper end places, the food simply needs work to match pricing. I would go back to see if this was simply a one time experience. The filet mignons served at the table beside ours looked perfect.

We have lived in the local area and have dined at Lord Byron many times over the years. On this night it was their Customer Appreciation Event that offered 50% off pricing. We sure felt appreciated. Sam and the rest of the staff provided excellent service. We started with the Caesar Salad for two and it was excellent as usual. I had the Dover Sole (as I often do there) and my wife had the Veal Oscar. We were very satisfied with both. Being too full for dessert, we took some Balklava home to have later. We will return for sure as we always do.
