“good food and atmosphere”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This was a good place to get a quick dinner before going to the theater. My salmon salad was tasty and a decent sized portion for dinner. The fried green tomatoes were also very good. We shared them and I could have eaten the whole serving myself. The hush puppies were also very good. My son had the shrimp piazza and really enjoyed it.

“Good for quick meal”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We came here because we had been told that we could get a decent dinner quickly and we were in a hurry (had tickets for the Shakespeare theater). It was fast -we were out in 45 minutes - and the two Tex-Mex dishes we ordered (fish tacos and pork enchiladas) were tastier than usual. Good experience.

“Another reason to visit Staunton, Virginia”

Great menu selections from starters to desserts. Reasonable pricing and attentive service. Parking is plentiful in lot across the street. Bar on main level but did not visit. Upstairs dining room was comfortable.

“Dinner at Byers Street Bistro”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Drawn in to the restaurant by the vegetarian option on dinner menu. We had hummus appetizer, which was very tasty, then we each got a "Vegetable Napolean", which had beautiful presentation, and we devoured every bite! Layers of crisp fried green tomatoes with goat cheese, spinach, and red tomato filling, topped with arugula, sitting on asiago grits, with basalmic reduction drizzled over it. Great creativity, taste, and presentation!! Service was great too.

“Very disappointed...”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

I was disappointed in the food...not the fresh food that I expected. I question why in a resturant of this type I could not switch the cheese that was listed on my sandwich to another that they clearly had on another sandwidh on the menu. This made me think that orders are not prepared as ordered...perhaps some things were premade and frozen. They did not measure up to my expectaions and won't be on my list of places to make a return visit.

I would like to take the opportunity to apologize for your recent visit with our restaurant. We take pride in serving food that is made in house, using all fresh ingredients. We strive to accommodate all of our guest request and I am disappointed that we failed to meet yours this particular day. You are correct in stating that a simple substitution on a sandwich should have been honored as this is the standard we have put in place. We failed to deliver in this instance and I sincerely hope that you will reconsider visiting our establishment again.
