The food is amazing but the service is subpar. They don’t seem to know how to interact with customers.

The good was wonderful and we liked the decor. But the most exception al part of our visit was our server. She knew the menu like the back of her hand. She gave us an overview and then went through in more detail. She recommended some of her favourites, told us what was popular and recommended a dish that was being prepared a little differently that night because of some special ingredients they'd received. A wonderful experience.

I booked my reservation weeks ahead requesting a booth for a 60th birthday party comprising six people. We were sat in the basement bar next to a family with children under the age of five. I requested to be moved upstairs. The host agreed to try but never returned. I walked upstairs one hour into our meal to see empty tables. We were charged approximately $1000 for our meal. Stay away from this restaurant.

The food was outstanding! Although it’s tapas style, we filled up quite quickly on two dishes each. The Turkish dumplings, truffle bread, and brussel sprouts were superb. I could live off those brussel sprouts. We also had the night flight tea - it was so unique and delicious. Highly recommend, the food and service were extraordinary.

The food was incredible! Portions are typically small sharing plates which is great if you are with a few people. The service was great and the atmosphere is dim and inviting. Great experience overall.

The food is very original and authentic, the sharing menu allows you to try a variety of things. Leave the restaurant full and content. The atmosphere and the design of the space, dim lighting round booths allow it to be very cozy and great for coming in groups to celebrate, have discussions.

My dinner experience here is possibly one of the most favorite meals I've every had! We had the stuffed squash blossoms, braised lamb, and beets with yogurt. Everything was outstanding the the delicate way they integrate the spices is really amazing. SUCH a gem! I can't wait to go back!

As an individual who’s both middle eastern and has Mediterranean roots I was very impressed.

This was my third time at Byblos and frankly is my best restaurant in the city right now. The mixture of flavors and thought behind every dish from starter to dessert is truly admirable.

This time around I gathered friends and naturally we started with their artichoke labbneh and it was as expected on point with excellent citrus and honey flavouirng. The turkey dumplings are a natural choice as well, and definitely to die for.

It’s best if you treat the menu as a sharing menu and order 4-6 mains pending on how hungry you are and how many people are in the group. My all time favorites are the fried chicken, their lamb shoulder and beef kebabs, with 1-2 truffle rice.

I could keep writing about my experience, but the only way to truly experience it is to actually go and try the explosion of flavors!

Thanks again Byblos, until next time!
