Byblos - Toronto Ratings and Reviews
Looking forward to coming back!! Wait staff perfect, Bar keep awesome, food delightful.
Wonderful night with excellent flavours. The duck was our favorite
It was my first time at this restaurant and I was very surprised by the location. The upstairs dining room was nicer and held more ambiance than downstairs (definitely my preference for a date). The food was delicious and I would definitely recommend that anyone should give it a try. Fried chicken and thrice-frites were fantastic!
This restaurant exceeded my expectations. With its beautiful decor, knowledgeable and impeccable service, the food was outstanding, both authentic and fusion (the duck kibbeh, middle eastern fried chicken were perfect!) and the drinks, by far the best cocktails I've ever had! A foodie paradise and Toronto gem!
We were a group of 6 and the round tables are perfect to sit exactly 6. We ordered 10 different plates to share. It was a great evening. Also, the wine was serve at the right temperature. I would gladly eat there again next time I visit Toronto.
My husband and I were extremely impressed by the intricacy of the food - the depth of flavours, the colours and the great ingredients! Very authentic. Wonderful ambience. Experienced professional staff who were very attentive, pleasant and informative. They obviously love working there. A bit pricey but worth every penny considering how much work evidently went in to making each creation!
I have been two times. Both were exceptional service and excellent food.
It was my boyfriend’s early birthday dinner before the raps vs. cavs game and when I told the server the game was at 8pm, they rushed the food. Amazing service and speed of food preparation. Definitely one of the most authentic dining I’ve had. Their lamb shoulder is to die for!
Fabulous experience from the moment we entered the front door through to leaving after a delicious dinner. Amazing sharing menus and wine offerings!!
Over priced for the quantity of food, and taste wasn't that great.
Dinner at Byblos is always perfect. Let the server shine and bring a selection of dishes to suit your table - as everything the kitchen puts out is phenomenal - so you don't have to worry about making selections.
Great ambiance, wait staff was friendly and attentive. Food was incredible, albeit portions were small.
Overall great food. Main course came out cold. When we alerted the server, the meal was replaced with another one with no hassle. However, the second time was not much warmer...
Everything was excellent!! Atmosphere... food.. service all excellent. Will definitely returne when back in Toronto. Loved it!
The food was way too salty. And we had to wait for quite a while to be served, on top of everything, it was freezing cold in a restaurant. Overall not pleasant at all, wouldn't recommend
We had a fantastic time as a party of three. Lovely flavours and textures - all the dishes we ordered were delicious, albeit a bit pricey for the portions. Service was wonderful; I was impressed with how they kept track of who had sparkling vs tap water. Overall a wonderful experience!
Everything was absolutely incredible. Our server had great knowledge of the food and made great suggestions. Will definitely return to try the rest of the menu.
First time at Byblos! Made the decision based on the reviews at Open Table and the wonderful menu!
Amazing food. Brought my family here as a goodbye dinner, and everything was great. Couldn’t pick a single favourite dish. My brother tried to order one kebab for himself because he’s greedy but I told him if he does that he can’t share any of the other 8 dishes with us. He made the right choice. I’m rambling.
Overall Great experience. Food is incredible
Amazing food, great service. Will be back soon.
Had dinner the other night and it was excellent. The only problem was that there is a bit of a draft so if you are going during the winter, bring a scarf or sweater! Food and service were wonderful - one of our party has an allergy and they were very conscious of helping us order the right dishes!
Fantastic - i would highly recommend it!
Went for family dinner. Everything about this place is great - food is delicious, lots of vegetarian options and well presented, service excellent, ambiance comfortable and cozy. All around great experience
Fantastic set menu for New Year's Eve celebration. Service was top notch. The appetizers kept my daughter really amazed. She could not stop complementing the mixed flavours pouring out from each bite. "Even better than the Michelin one star in London!". The entries in comparison were good but not as surprising as the appetizers. Love the desserts.
Came here to celebrate a birthday, and really enjoyed it. The service was wonderful, and the ambiance was perfect. Loved the booth seating. The food was delicious, highly recommend the 12-hour braised lamb - it's so tender and just melts in your mouth. Will definitely be back again
We had a great time at Byblos on Dec 29...great food, great service, beautiful restaurant...everything to make our night out with friends special. The menu and food is "Tapas Style" but our server talked us through and recommended the perfect amount of food to order. Each plate was delicious but the table favourite was the Roasted Lamb. We will definitely be back and recommend highly to anyone looking for a terrific place to eat in Downtown Toronto
Fantastic food and service tonight! The city needs more places like this!
AmaIng waiter and food!
The food was delicious. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. Great ambiance.
Amazing all around.
Byblos is a favorite of mine. I dine here two or three times a year and it never disappoints. Fantastic food, excellent service, eclectic wine list and great ambiance. It never fails. Long live Byblos!
Nice atmosphere, lighting soft, good music, not too loud. Great food!
The food is so unique and well prepared. It's such an amazing dining experience to try all sorts of different spices creatively crafted in a meal! Service is really good too. They forgot one of the items we ordered but it's okay, we made it up in the dessert! Definitely would dine here again.
Food was disappointing - not one of the eight dishes the table ordered was a home run
Our group of 4 sampled about 8 dishes. We started with the truffle flatbread which was incredibly delicious. The fish special was Sea Bream and it was excellent. The gem salad, lamb ribs, kale rice and seared cauliflower were extremely tasty. No room for dessert this time but we'll be back.
Very good food and service. Wine was good but overpriced.
The food was amazing! For the price we paid the service could of been better.
Went here for dinner before the symphony across the street. Had the salmon, short rib kebab, Brussel sprouts, streak tartare and wood fire truffle dish, plus the Turkish for dessert. All recommended by the server and all amazing! Love the ambience and that it wasn’t too loud yet entertaining. This was my second time and definitely not the last. Thanks Byblos!
We love going to Byblos. It had been a while and it was nice to see a menu with new items as well as some old favourites. While we couldn't get the wine we selected, we were given a great recommendation for an incredible price. It was so good we had two bottles! My husband and I love fun vibe at Byblos and knowing that we'll have a fabulous experience trying new dishes that fuse east and west.
I have no words other than AMAZING!!! The food is creative and tasty, the service is excellent, our favourite place.
