I was there on Saturday night with a friend, at around 8h30. The place was not too busy which was a surprise for me, since this place used to be very busy in the past espacially on Saturday night. We were on our way to another restaurant on Church, but when we saw that there was a couple of tables free by the window, we decided to stop here. We got a table right away, again, to my big suprise because of the time and on a Saturday night. It was my first time since at least a year, so, I was glad to be here. This place always been know as being expensive, but now, it is very expensive for what you get. I had the beef tenderloin at $32. and very small and cold. First disapointment. The wine list is also very expensive. Second disapointment. There was a table of 6 behind us and the clients were VERY noisy, I turn around 3 times to see what was going on, the waiters saw me to turn around each time, but nobody asked that group to tone down a bit.Third disapointment. We could not wait to get out of there. So, I will never go back at Byzantium and I will be very surprised if they go through summer. Really not what it used to be. I used to be proud to bring my out of town friends there, but not anymore, there are better choices on Church Street and in the Yorkville area, for better prices and more atmosphere. I really feel like to take the gay clientele for granted. Mistake. We are no longer tied to the Village.
