Fantastic!! the lamb shoulder and branzino were brilliant!
Our favourite restaurant in the city. Beautiful ambiance, incredibly flavourful food. What a treat for the senses! Cocktails are fantastic too!
Great dining experience from start to finish. Our server was brilliant and the food and beverages delightful.
The m’taabal and the short rib kebab are to die for!
Amazing experience - we will be back .
The staff was friendly . The food and drinks were amazing
Staff was extremely accommodating in re-arranging seating due to weather concerns. Also very accommodating in terms of checking on allergies and surprised us a very sweet birthday treat. Love the quiet and relaxing ambiance. Great spot for a date as you can actually hear your partner speak. Will definitely be back soon!!!
Excellent food, impressive wine list & delicious cocktails. The service, however, was rather mediocre.
The food never disappoints and the service is exceptional.
Food was good specially chicken wine was good as well but i was expecting the sitting place nice but it was ok
Cocktails and pide were outstanding. I'd definitely come back again.
My family and I had a wonderful dinner!
Went here for my anniversary dinner, and the food was nothing short of amazing!
We had the hummus royale (loved that it came with wafts beef), the fig salad (absolutely delicious), braised lamb shoulder (loved the assembly of it) with a side of cauliflower (simple and yummy). We shared all the plates making it more family style. The portions were really good, and you leave the place feeling satisfied.
I would most definitely come here again and recommend it to other people :)
Everything was delicious, and the service was excellent!
Flavour galore. Great plates, presentation. Diverse and exotic selection. Great cocktails and the staff was terrific.
Was seated upstairs where we were a reasonable distance from other patrons in cozy banquette! Our waitress was very accommodating explaining menu and food choices. Shared 4 items between 2 of us-perfect! Everything was delicious-get the ribs! Bonus- you register your car at a local lot before dinner with them and parking is taken care of. Will be back for sure!
Everything about this restaurant is fantastic! The service is attentive, the ambiance is wonderful, but the food is just outstanding! We had a number of small plates to share as wanted to experience as many dishes as possible being our first time at the restaurant. We had Turkish dumplings, hummus with meat, sweet jewel rice, branzino and Brussels spouts! All amazing! Will definitely be back!
Fantastic! Everything we ordered was on point and hit the spot.
Through no fault of their own ambiance was given a lower rating because of their limited patio space assigned to them and it's a busy street.
Indoors is lovely, looking forward to one day being able to enjoy that again
Amazing! Food, service and drinks were great.
We’ll be back. Excellent middle eastern dishes!!!!
The food was absolutely delicious! Compliments to the chef! Service was great! Very friendly staff and very welcoming :) we’re already planning to come back with friends and family :)
Excellent as always--we loved the food and the service was wonderful. Thanks!!!
The food and drink at Byblos meet all expectations. Everything is beautifully presented and tastes absolutely delicious. The patio feels a bit cramped and is not the most beautiful outdoor venue in the city but as I said the food and drink compensate for that.
Incredible food as always and impeccable service.
Delighted to dine at one of the best Mediterranean restaurants in Toronto.The drinks menu is always on par as well.
We have previously been to Byblos downtown and enjoyed the food. We booked a special anniversary dinner (noted in was an anniversary) and patio seating. We were seated on a very narrow and uncomfortable patio with a loud spin class across the street (yelling and singing to “Mr. Vain”. A far cry from the romantic corner table with nice ambiance we hoped for. They were unable to move us inside and when my husband asked the female server (the one with blonde hair) if she could check on indoor seating she rudely and sharply stated “I said I would. I will!” Sheesh. We left and walked to pink sky and were given champagne, a lovely corner booth and a delicious meal.
It’s a shame because we liked Byblos.
Absolutely divine! Loved the food.
Food and drinks was good. Patio seats are very narrow especially the 2 person table.
In addition found 2 hair in our dumplings but there was not much concern shown. Also some items were super delayed. I saw same item delivered to people who came after :)
Otherwise we really enjoyed our meal.
Food was absolutely divine, great flavours and quality. It was my fiancé’s birthday and we had really good time. It was our first time dining at Byblos and we are definitely coming back here! The service could have been better, there was only one server at 5pm serving a few tables.
Patio visit recently great menu choices good value attentive to detail wasn’t able to redeem Amex platinum offer unfortunately therefore platinum members be aware of this please
Food is overpriced, tiny quantities, lamb was sour
Service was great and prompt
Very overpriced, food wasn’t great. Hummus was the equivalent of what you can get at walmart, drinks were too watered down.
Had a really great time from start to finish. They are thoughtful, gracious and the food is delicious. Highly recommend.
The experience and the food was just amazing . It was worth it to spend every $
Boring patio…no lights or music…and not the dynamic service we use to have for the pasts years…will not go back for a long time…
everything was perfect, from the meal to the overall service. always is. :)
Amazing. Good food and setting
The ambiance is not fault of Byblos - it's just not the same energy with reduced capacity as per COVID compliance.
Tyler was a great bartender and took great care of us.
Thanks for the hospitality!
It was just so good! We had the red beets with labneh, the cucumber-tomato salad, the ribs kebab and the cauliflower and everything was full of flavour! A memorable meal! Service was friendly and efficient! Really a great exoerience!
It was our second time at Byblos and although we missed eating next to the kitchen area downstairs due to pandemic restrictions, it was still an amazing experience. The combination of spices and ingredients is fantastic and every time we come in to Toronto from Montreal it’s a must to eat here. I highly recommend going to this restaurant!
