An oasis on a cold very snowy day.

I met friends for a Christmas luncheon. This was a return visit for all of us, having been here quite a number of years ago. I found the menu very extensive and acceptable without being exceptional.

I was amazed by the top notch quality of all the items prepared at our table. The Chateaubriand was amazing and escargot was to die for!! The owner and his family were welcoming and professional - the best service I have ever had! This is the perfect spot for a date for two - charming, intimate, romantic! I will definitely... More

A very enjoyable Saturday evening was spent at this restaurant, the service was excellent, as was the food, from the scallops, to the steaks, we couldn't find fault with anything. Staff were very welcoming, and attentive. Good wine and food, and I thought excellent value for money. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

I met friends for a Christmas luncheon. This was a return visit for all of us, having been here quite a number of years ago. I found the menu very extensive and acceptable without being exceptional. Atmosphere comfortable, staff friendly and helpful. I did not like the open dessert cart on display in what is essentially a public area.

The atmosphere is old English and service and food outstanding. They now serve lunch which we are anxious to try. They have an extensive menu and lovely wine choices.

We had visited The Lord Byron when under the previous management and this was our first visit under the new ownership. Our reservations were for 5:30 p.m. but due to a bad accident on Hwy 403 we were running late. After calling to let them know about our situation we were told “no problem, take your time.” We arrived 1... More

I was shocked in this day and age to see open plates of complimentary pickles, olives and feta delivered to the tables prior to any diners being seated at the tables. Along the same lines, I was dismayed to see trolleys of uncovered desserts sitting out in the open for arriving guests to see. I want all my food delivered... More

My mother was going in for surgery, so we wanted to have a family get-together before it happened. We picked Lord Byron. The food was fantastic & the service was outstanding. The only negative thing was, we wish the decor was updated. Would highly recommend this restaurant

We had a lovely dinner at Lord Byron's celebrating our 46th year of marriage. Our daughter treated us and the waiter and owner were very attentive. I had filet, my daughter had chicken. Both were moist and very tasty. My husband had a fish dinner but it arrived looking at him and that was not appealing to either myself or... More

Paid 120$ for chateubriand . It was horrible. Tasted like a crappy steak with the packaged four peppercorn sauce to which you add water that you buy at the supermarket . Horribly disappointed. Did not know the restaurant changed ownership. Will never be back.
