A lovely restaurant with an intimate feel to it. You feel special from the moment you walk in the door and the service is excellent. Fantastic food and can be topped with the added bonus of items being made fresh at your table. We tend to go here for date night for a special occasion as it is a bit... More

This is likely the best fine dining in Waterdown. The have a broad menu of steaks and seafood, aggressively price with exceptional service and presentation The wine selection, food and service were all exceptional but a little over priced which is possibly why they had only 50% filled at 7:30 on a Saturday night. This place would be filled every... More

My husband and I have been to Lord Byron's many many times. We visited this past week and were extremely disappointed to see that they no longer put out the plate of feta cheese, pickles and olives. You still get the garlic bread, but none of that other tasty stuff. They also no longer offer feta with your baked potato.... More

Was invited for a company business lunch and was very pleased all around including professional service, excellent New York steak and made at your table Spanish coffee and dessert. For sure not a modern looking steakhouse but definitely worth going back for everything else.

The service initially was good but fell dramatically after we were served. It is very misleading to order the ceasar salad for two and be charged $14.50 each. Yes that is $29 for a couple . My ribeye steak had a metal rod and hook in it. I asked the waiter what it was he said he didn't know but... More

For many years we thoroughly enjoyed The Lord Byron, dining there a few times a month for a few decades. It was a fine establishment when Frank was the owner but it's declination almost seemed inevitable when, at first, the one son took over and most recently as a result of the new ownership. We've visited under each of the... More

It's been many/many years since I have been to the Lord Byron. I thought, nice change...a little formal, intimate surrounding, no noise...a la keg or canyon creek etc. I ordered the prime rib - omg...obviously a previously cut bone in piece of prime...one side gray, zero seasoning, over cooked(asked for medium rare)...the bone had the appearance of micro wave.....it was...
