Best Mediterranean food in Toronto (and probably Canada!!!)...
The plates are pretty small, so you need to order a few. My fiance and I ordered 4 small plates for the two of us and found it to be enough. The good thing is that it forces you to try more of the menu and everything we tried was amazing!
This is the best food I've ever had! So tasty. The wine was flowing very easy and our server was amazing. Very knowledgeable and a good sense of humour!
Slow service, waited to be seated for 20 mins even though a table was booked for a specific time.
A waiter forgot about the cocktail.
Was cold in a restaurant.
Food is great!
Delicious and unique food. Gorgeous ambiance. Our server looked like she hated us was the only downfall. Very impressive restaurant with 4 floors downtown Toronto which is unheard of but completely understand why it’s raved about after going. Already have recommended to others and will be returning.
Cold. Literally freezing cold. Slow service and unremarkable food
The restaurant was overbooked and understaffed. It took long time to be seated, get our food and drinks. The food wasn’t tasty and it wasn't worth the price we paid
New Year's Eve dinner with my family was spectacular! This is the first time we went out as a family for dinner on New Year's Eve and the staff made us feel right at home. Thanks for a fantastic meal and evening.
The food was stunning, we had an amazing experience. We only had to wait more than what we expected between meals.
Byblos has the most AMAZING food! Everything we tried was so delicious, even things I usually wouldn’t choose to eat. The NYE menu was a bit pricey but you get 5 courses and they were all spectacular. Our service was also excellent which made the whole experience even better. Definitely recommend! This is one of my new favourite spots in the city.
Extremely overpriced for the variety and quality of food.
Slow service of food, most food was cold, fries were old vs fresh, meat did not have flavour (was bland) and had nothing to do with kabab. Cocktails look better than they taste. Rice was good, fried chicken was ok. The waitress was friendly. Fair ambiance and second floor looks nice.
The food was outstanding! Some of the best we’ve ever had.
The service was also great!
I took my husband there for his birthday. The food was ok the fried chicken was too dry and hard to chew. My husband was very disappointed.
The pita was amazing! I would’ve ordered 2 more of the wagyu pitas if i knew how delicious they were. The chicken to share was good aswell, paired really well with the various sauces that it came with. The service could’ve been better, I felt as though she was a little standoffish and cold. Other than that it was a great experience!
It was hard to find the restaurant and the portions of foods were so small but we loved the taste and their design.
Staff were friendly and nice.
had a dinner for my girlfriend’s birthday. Food and service were excellent. I would definitely recommend.
Everything was perfect and the food was delicious, an excellent service we enjoyed the food and the place.
Fantastic food. Tried the less popular fried eggplant for starters and absolutely loved it. The flavours, in general, are extremely well balanced. Doubt you can go wrong with anything on the menu :)
Great service, delicious food and great ambience. Overall a wondeful exeperience.
The best Mediterranean food in Toronto. Excellent service and ambient. Good selection of music's on the background. Some may think volume was a bit louder than expected from sit down restaurants (you need to speak a bit louder for people on your table to hear you). In the other hand, it's hard to listen to other table conversations, and I like that as well.
Bar has a great selection!
Food came too late almost we got our drink , main and starter at the same time, too noisy, it seemed like they were short in staff
Still a decent dinner, but not as good as used to be. Recent menu changes left us disappointed.
The grilled Branzino and the Cornish Hen were excellent as were the sides baked Cauliflower and Pearl Rice with Saffron. Service was good and our waiter was attentive. Our table was too small to be comfortable and was a bit too close to other diners taking social dustancing into account. Finding the restaurant for a first time visitor was not as easy as one would expect as the sign is miniscule and almost impossible to see in the dark on an overcast night.
Lovely food and drinks are to die for.....amazing!!!
Food and service is spectacular! Gorgeous location and quiet enough to chat. Highly recommend!
So disappointed! Service was horrendous. Waitress was in no way professional, friendly or efficient. We had to keep asking another waiter for help (whom happen to be lovely) and when we did get our waitresses attention she seemed annoyed. We also ordered another bottle of wine and had to cancel it because our meal was done. I understand it’s a busy time of year and with Covid restrictions it can be difficult esp in the service industry but when your going out for an evening without kids and spending good money you would hope your overall experience is at least moderate…. This was below average.
We had such a beautiful evening and the food was incredible and so was the service.
Lovely service, terrific presentation, delicious. Try the branzino, jewelled rice, and the friend chicken!
Food was great but portions small. Did not enjoy the service. We were sitting for 15 min and no one even bothered to come to our table. Finally I had to ask one of the waiters if he can take our orders.
This was a great way to spend the evening - our table allergy was accommodated and even though we were told the time limit at the beginning of the reservation we were allowed to stay until the restaurant closed.
Table of twos are not set up well. It was easier to hear the conversations of the guests next to us than my husband across our table. Not intimate enough, half way through the dinner we sat side by side to avoid the guests at the next table hearing our conversation.
Food was very tasty however I immediately felt ill from the rich sauces used. Overpriced for what it is.
The food here is always absolutely amazing. The service staff takes there time to make sure you are making good choices for your group and are very knowledgeable about their menu.
The food is outstanding
The service ruined the exquisite experience
We sat upstairs which is much more elegant feeling than the main floor.
The server was outstanding! Present, relaxed and fun and not overbearing but there when we needed him! The food was delicious as always. Great night!
Too crowded for indoor dining… too noisy.
I felt that there were tables that were too crowded 6 or more people who were not related to each other.
Loved this restaurant!!! Everything was delicious. You can't miss the truffle bread, short ribs and fried chicken. Absolutely amazing
The citrus spice G&T had no flavor, which was very disappointing. Everything else was good and consistent, but didn’t stand out.
Super cool atmosphere, amazing food, great service.
Excellent food (as always), and service was great :)
