We had an incredible evening. The ambiance was lovely, our server was spot on and even the cocktails were extraordinary. We all loved the family style and the flavors and presentation of each dish was memorable. Will definitely come again for a special occasion!

Food was sensational and felt we got a lot for what we paid - we asked the waiter to set up a tasting menu for us instead of trying to figure out what to order, it was great and so much easier. Will be back!

The food quality has decreased here. Portions have gotten smaller and less tasty. Will not come back.

Excellent place. Highly recommended. Exotic flavors that make regular dishes into completely new ones.

I've been here before and loved it. That said, this second visit was even better than the first. Our server was spectacular, friendly and talkative (but not overtalkative). The menu is full of high quality ingredients, many of which we had to ask questions about, but all of the individuals who helped us throughout were friendly and had all of the answers. Great ambiance. Stellar house old fashioned.

My girlfriend and my jobs don't give us a lot of time to eat out, but we'll definately be back soon.

Food was amazing, server was super nice, just a little
Expensive but it’s worth it for the experience. Parking might be a problem because they don’t pick up phone calls so you can’t register, I had to pay 10$ for parking.

As always, a great meal at Byblos. Not only is the food great, they are sensitive to the needs of celiac customers, understanding that gluten free means avoid cross contamination. One of my favourite Toronto restaurants

In one word, WOW! First time dinning experience and it was AAA+. Our server was kind, informative and did an excellent job walking (guiding) us through the menu AND it was worth it! Flavours, flavours and more flavours. Enough said, will go back... soon!

The black cod was absolutely delicious. However, my lamb was a bit overdone.

Depending on your budget, in my opinion, the portion size was not worth it for the price but the food was good quality. I ordered 3 dishes but finished it all within 5 minutes. You would need to get one thing from starter, to share, rice AND side to be completely satisfied with your meal...
I ordered a $36 cod that's the size of half of a small fish was definitely not very filling. I was not very pleased. Rip off place for your money.
