Disappointed in the short ribs.$30 for 4 finger size ribs seems over priced. The food was pretty good but value not as great as I’d expected.
So delicious. Such a delight
No music no vibe. Great food.
Spectacular, hasn’t missed a step
Excellence food with nice use of spices
service was quite slow and inattentive however the food was amazing as always and that’s what counts!
Amazing service and amazing food.
Professional waiter and delicious food.
Excellent restaurant, faut y prendre l’agneau effiloché!
Agréable d’y partager des plats, grand choix.
Restaurant très populaire, bcp de m’as-tu vu et selfies!…
L’obligation d’utiliser le code QR pour consulter menu vins et nourriture ne devrait pas être une excuse pour que le serveur en fasse moins!
Amazing experience, wonderful service, delicious food!
No umbrellas or coverings. Extra long time to get food packed to go and eat at home because it was raining on us. Not even extra side dish or discount for the massive inconvenience. Very poor customer service. Witnessed awkward tiffs between customers and management. Not well managed.
Excellent patio dining
Amazing food but the patio has no ambience, disappointed for a place with such expensive food. Would be nice to decorate the patio maybe add some lights…
Great service, delicious food and decent portion👌🏼👌🏼
Awesome food and great service. Wine was very expensive
The service and food was impeccable!
Byblos has been one of my favourite Toronto restaurants and I was so sad when it didn’t have a patio last summer due to covid. After a long time away, Byblos did not disappoint. Simple, elegant patio. Food was exquisite as always. Service understated but on point. Can’t wait to go again soon.
Great Patio, Service and food is outstanding as always
We have dined at Byblos a few times and are always absolutely delighted with the quality of food and service. We will be back!
Phenomenal food! Everything was delicious. Definitely will be back!
FOH were lovely and very helpful/knowledgeable when we had questions about the menu and how much to order! Food was great and I can't wait to try the rest of the menu!
Our server Alex was amazing. We were overwhelmed because the menu is all so wonderful, so she curated the perfect meal for all of us to share - she was incredibly knowledgeable and made it such a lovely experience! The food was outstanding. I’m still thinking about the branzino.
Great dinner & experience. Would highly recommend & return.
Great flavors. Inventive menu. Creative cocktails. It was a great meal, and so nice to reopen in the right place.
I had requested to sit upstairs when I made the reservation, and upon arrival, they never acknowledged that and sat us downstairs. When I asked before being seater, they said it would still be a wait for upstairs. Fine with it, and upon sitting down I noticed a table got sat right away upstairs. Byblos has always been my favourite restaurant... I was very disappointed by this treatment, although the food and service was still excellent as always.
Delightful evening. Great food, great atmosphere. I will be back.
Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. We didn’t feel rushed and the ambience was lovely. It was a little chilly on the main level though but otherwise a great evening.
Amazing!!! My mans favourite restaurant and he was absolutely surprised with their service and drink request prior to arriving!
Excellent service from general manager Matt! Thank you for everything!
The turkish manti dumplings and black truffle pide were incredible! Worth going just for these two dishes. The spanish octopus was a bit overcooked and could have used more sauce. The short rib kebab and fried chicken were okay but nothing special and for the prices at Byblos, I expect outstanding.
It took a looooong time in between the starters and the main dishes but since we weren't in a rush, it didn't really matter.
Had interesting and delicious cocktails to start (Geographer and Marrakesh Garden) that were beautifully garnished. Octopus and dumplings to start, Short rib kebab and fried chicken as mains. All excellent. Fairly small but well-curated wine list.
Exceptional, loved my meal! Enjoyed the fact that a lot of the entres were to share.
Unbelievable food, service and ambiance.
Would have licked the plate!!
Delicious food. Serving sizes don’t look big but the food is very filling
Fabulous!!!! Would highly recommend. Girls weekend away and was a success.
Great extraordinary food, nice location and amazing service
Delicious food, great service, lovely environment - overall an amazing experience. 12/10
My husband and I were meeting with the Jamaican Consul General to Canada for dinner. Toronto offers a unique opportunity for international diplomats to experience other cultures through their food. He was thoroughly impressed as were my husband and I! This is the third time we were eating here but the hostess was able to tell me that she seated us 1 yr ago when we were last there! Beautiful dishes with incredible taste combinations! I had the dog salad before. It’s one of my favourite salads ever and I’m a carnivore! The BBQ beef was so flavourful and the Branzino was excellent! The flavoured rice tied all the flavours in on the plate! I look forward to the next time and I’m certain our guest will be bringing more future patrons as well!
Tres bon et belle ambiance!
I took my partner out to dinner here for our anniversary. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, the music was groovy. I have essentially zero complaints about this place!
