Byzantium is a little off the plaza, and a little off the beaten track. You won't find a website and the chef doesn't own a cell phone. But what he may lack in technology is more than made up for in flavorful cuisine and creative...More

As recommended by the guide sources, I made a reservation, but it really was not necessary. The host was very friendly and efficient, but the house salad was half filled with spoiled lettuces. The curry shrimp was tasty, but the ingredients were mushy and overcooked.

Saw good reviews, so we went to dinner there. The surroundings are a bit funky and the place is modestly adorned, so our expectations were cautious. There is an Asian influence to the menu as you can order a Thai dish or an all American...More

1st I would say you MOST LIKELY do not need a reservation because this place is a DUD. Very pricey we had 3 glasses of wine and 2 appetizers (we had asparagus soup and some type of kabob ) and it cost over 80.00. Nothing...More

This restaurant had received good reviews on Trip Advisor, so I expected to like it much better than I did. Byzantium is tucked away in a corner, a block or so from the old Taos Town Square and is quite inviting from the outside. Inside...More

Nestled on a corner right off the plaza you will find an amazing restaurant. Opened only for dinner. Byzantium has no more than seven tables. This is definitely for food lovers. Low lights, very romantic. Good selection of wines. Don't expect your ordinary fare here....More

I recently had dinner here and suggest that you pass on Byzantium. Sure the food is good BUT the portions are small and the prices are out of control. I ordered the filet mignon for $34.00 The side dish, steamed vegetables was boring at best....More
