Why we love it

Executive chef: Ted Corrado

With its family-style menu and century-old building backdrop, media favourite Byblos is equally well-suited for special occasions and delicious, everyday dining. Eastern Mediterranean flavours are executed in modern ways featuring luscious ingredients like saffron liqueur and date molasses.

    Here's my take on this place: - Dead on a Saturday night - Food was decent but overly salty - Drinks were mediocre - Service was decent - Didn't have steak knives when we ordered a steak Probably wouldn't go back They sat us at a table that was small when no one was in the place and they're were many other tables available. had to ask to move to something bigger, keep in mind or reservations said it was our anniversary Also did nothing for us to make us feel celebrated. Moxies woulda done a better job. Overrated

    Absolutely incredible attention to detail. Could not say enough great things about our dinner. Has the crispy olives & tuna tartar for appetizers, harisa roasted half chicken with jasmine rice as main and the pomegranate sorbet & cheesecake for dessert. Absolutely incredible food and excellent service. Will be returning frequently to this establishment.

    Beautiful restaurant, ambience was amazing and very intimate set up. Food was delicious, wish we could have tried more. I would say the desserts need improvements, they are good but not the wow factor like the apps and mains they make.

    I visited it to celebrate a birthday and the food was amazing. The octopus was superb. The waitress was really gentle and guided us during the dinner, bringing some recommendations.

    We ordered some really unique cocktails and classic martinis! Delicious! I’ve highly recommend the grilled Bronzino! Cool industrial kind of vibe.

    My wife and I dined at Bylbos a few nights ago. The food, service and ambiance were perfect. No complaints. Our server was very helpful with our menu choices. He was very attentive throughout our dinner. He also arranged for a taxi for us after our meal. I would highly recommend Bylbos and hope we will visit again soon.

    I’ve eaten here about 3 dozen times in 7 years. Never had less than a perfect meal. This time I was with friends visiting from various countries who were very pleased with the entire experience. My friend from Mumbai said the jeweled rice was the most beautiful rice she’d ever tasted. Even better, our server was exceptional, perfect timing, pleasant demeanour, and unobtrusively attentive while we were immersed in our own conversation.
