"We went Sunday night after the Blizzard of 2016, and they were open!
The proprietor called to notify us they would be open for dinner, and once we arrived we were warmly welcomed. We were some of the only travelers to brave the roads that night, and the other tables remained empty all evening. I have been here before and always enjoy my meals and experience at Byrsa.

"A pleasant surprise. Delicious gourmet meals for all four in our party. Chose on-line as being near Longwood Gardens. Max, our waiter directed us to a close winery as Byrsa is a BYOB. Our meal was timely served . as we had reserved tickets for the Gardens."

"Enjoyed Sat night dinner at Byrsa Bistro after seeing the Longwood holiday display. The beef short ribs served over coarse grits were tender and flavorful. Another entree, equally interesting, was lamb cassoulet with broad beans, topped by duck leg, a generous portion. The soup of the day, a creamy roasted parsnip, was excellent (a little pricey at $6 for a small cup). Small salad can also be added to entree ($6), we enjoyed the salad with figs and goat cheese. BYOB which helps keep the total tab reasonable. Friendly service in a pleasant small space."

"My boyfriend and I came here since we love Mediterranean food, and there was a Yelp check-in offer. The wait staff didn't really seemed to know about the promotion, but they were very kind and took it anyway. The duck and fig flatbread was absolutely amazing. We had a 7:30p reservation, and I felt guilty for being the last ones in the restaurant (the restaurant closes at 8:30p). However, Daisy was an incredible server and very patient, giving us great tips on what to try on the menu. BYOB friendly! Great to stop by if you're like us and making a trip to Kennett Square for Longwood Gardens."

"Great food at Byrsa, the ambience is perfect, the food delicious. My parents visited from out of town and we took them plus my 9 yr old son, most everyone had the chicken tagine which is amazing, I had the talousse cassolet with a variety of delicious meats and veggies and it was outstanding! We met the owner, we offered him a seat and he gladly sat and chatted for a while, I think it is great for business owners to take time to get to know their customers and he did just that! A perfect pre-holiday family meal in a place that makes you feel at home while eating food better prepared and more professionally served than you could do on your own.
Thank you Byrsa for another great dinner!

"this had been our favorite restaurant and we had a good experience in November. this time, we had to wait nearly 20 minutes despite a reservations, were seated at a table next to the front door and told it was the only one available, but in the first 10 minutes the place cleared out. Salads arrived promptly but then we had to wait 45 minutes for our meals. The waiter avoided us, I had to get up and ask someone for information
The salmon and branzino arrived cold, room temperature they had been waiting somewhere for that 45 minutes. the Cassoulet was too hot and tasted as if it had been prepared the day before, the short ribs were fine. high quality well prepared and presented food have always been the highlights here, as has been the service.
Service was poor, food was not coordinated.
Hopefully this was one bad night"

"Absolutely loved it here! The food was so delish. We ordered the branzino, salmon, the sampler, and mushroom flatbread! The only thing better than the food was the service. The owner, Ahmed, walked over to the table a few time and made for everything was perfect!"

"We have eaten at this restaurant several times and love the food. Normally we go on a week night, but this time we went on a Saturday and it was hopping. The food was still excellent but it was a little noisy and that detracted a bit from our meal. There was enough food to take home for leftovers and they too were fantastic. I would definitely recommend this place, the overall experience was wonderful."

"Food was very good. Chef was flexible. I wish there was more on the menu. There wasn't a lot as far as selection. I would have liked to see more on the menu. The menu was for more complex tastes, which meant a few of my guests weren't thrilled with the choices. Still, food was very good."

"Byrsa is on State Street the main road in Kennett Square. Although the menu has many enticing dishes, we were in the mood for a light lunch since we had just driven a couple of hours and would be going to nearby Longwood Gardens soon. We each had a salad. Both were great--one with beets, the other with figs and walnuts, both with goat cheese, and both plentiful. The restaurant had only 2 tables occupied when we arrived and they finished and left soon after. We engaged Max, the only and excellent server, in a most pleasant and fun conversation. We, for sure, look forward to eating at Byrsa when we again visit Longwood Gardens."

"This is one of my favorite places, the food and service are always top notch. The owner is there and checks up on each patron to see how it is going, if there was ever a problem he would be on it but I have never experienced anything but superior food and service. It's generally a quaint and casual dining location. It is a small place so I have rarely seen any group over 10 but I'm sure it's possible but would need to plan in advance for a large group. A reservation is recommended for any prime time seating because it does fill up rather easily."

"Mediterranean seafood is the specialty but what makes this restaurant so good is that every detail is covered, the salads, the breads, the desserts and obviously the main courses are crafted and fresh. The staff is attentive and helpful. This little moderately priced restaurant has the best food in the region, far better than places that are better known and more expensive."

"For openers, the food was excellent! The menu is creative and the food beautifully plated and presented. The two soups of the day were both excellent, cream of mushroom and potato. The whole grilled bronzino was crisp on the outside and very moist inside. The sides of couscous and slaw were perfect with the fish. The grilled salmon was also moist with good seasonings. The paella was stuffed with wonderful seafood and basmati rice. We did not have dessert and this is why. We had reservations for a party of 4 and there were four of us. We were seated at a table that MIGHT have comfortably accommodated 3 people. The table top was a beautiful slab of natural wood and the entire left outside corner was broken off so there was not enough room for the plates. We ordered an hors d'oeuvre assortment and had to stack the bread plates to make room for it. The restaurant is BYOB, which include liquor. Other patrons brought bottle of spirits as well as wine. The restaurant became very noisy and we had to shout to hear each other.
It is clearly a neighborhood gem and most folks know what they are getting. We did not. Great food but not that enjoyable an experience.
