    Beautiful space. Wait staff service was slow, kitchen was quick. Halloumi and pear salad was delicious. Short beef kebab was tasty, needed to have a little something else on the plate, I wasn’t told there was no sides. They were not kidding when they said the kafta was spicy.

    I went to Byblos ( Midtown) last night to celebrate my weeding anniversary. The food was excellent , the waiter was super nice , But the ambiance was soooo disappointing!!!!! the carpet on the steps was worn and had holes and the sofa where we were sitting was torn!!!!!! Seriously? I am not going back until i make sure the restaurant was renovated. The atmosphere doesn't do justice to the delicious food.

    Great ambiance but our main course was delayed and brought something else by mistake then took 20-25 minutes for the correct one to arrive when we were almost full. However they provided free desert to apologize for that. Most of the foods was a bit spicy, hot but beautifuly presented. Drinks were amazing too.

    Excellent food! Just a delicious experience with wonderful ambiance - carefully thought out and curated. Felt homey and classy. When the wait staff are just as excited for you get your food and smile when you list off your order, you know it’s good. It’s a place I’ll come to with the people who know me best and who I enjoy the company of the most. It’s that kind of place. Thank you for a delicious meal and wonderful experience.

    My boyfriend and I went to Byblos for a date night based on some great reviews and videos we’ve seen of the food. However, we were surprised by how horrible our experience was. The thing we were most surprised and disappointed by was the portion sizes of the food. We ordered based on videos we had seen where the food looked incredible and what arrived to our table was completely different. The octopus was a tiny portion, the wood fire pose was also incredibly smaller than what we had seen from others. The food was very flavourful and we were happy with the taste, but to leave a restaurant still hungry after a bill that cost as much as it did was not worth it. To top it off, our server was very inattentive and came to our table twice only. Our water was never refilled once and any time we wanted to order another drink we had to flag her down. Overall, not a great experience and, even though it was very tasty, I would not recommend Byblos unless it is for just food and a couple of apps.

    It was a beautiful restaurant and the server was amazing (Matt, I believe) but the food was just so disappointing. Or maybe I had high expectations? We got 3 things and the pide was the only good thing. The rose mocktail was great too.

    Byblos is not what it was. The old delicious dishes are either gone from the menu or not as good as they were. Service was decidedly "meh". This used to be my favorite Toronto restaurant but no more.

    This was our first time at the uptown location. While the ambiance of the restaurant and the presentation of the food was great, the flavors weren't quite as good as we recalled from a few years ago. The food tasted a little over-seasoned (the wagyu kofta) and the manti dumplings were a little overcooked. As always, the service was excellent though.

    We came here for my friends birthday. My friend had been here before and had a lovely experience. We had a reservation and were promptly seated. It took quite some time for the waiter to bring water. However the table next to us got everything quicker by the same waiters- in fact they got everything quicker. Even asking for a box took forever. Even after asking for it - it took so long I had to flag someone down. But the table next to us were there before us seemed to be waited hand and foot by same two people. For an upscale restaurant I expect better service. As POC, we felt the difference in service levels. And if all 3 of us felt it then clearly there is an issue. The service was terrible. I still tipped but I should not have given the service. This restaurant is upscale and expected better service. I will not be back! Update- I got in touch with the manager and we had a lovely chat. I hope for my next experience to be better :) I appreciate this restaurant listening to their customers and being open to the conversation. Kindness first! I will report back!

    This was my first time at Byblos, however some of the party had been there before. Firstly, service was very slow. I don’t believe this was an issue with our server at all, rather the kitchen. Second, 3 of us including myself received the Halloumi appetizer burnt and black on the outside. I did send mine back and got a perfectly good one after, but I’m not sure how the kitchen looked at the previous black burnt ones and said it was ok to send out. Overall the rest of the dishes were good, no other complaints. Atmosphere was great, clean, and warm.

    The food here is absolutely divine. We had grilled radicchio & walnut salad, lamb shoulder (so tender, pulls apart), jeweled rice, and roasted cauliflower, the lamb shoulder is 20/10 - must try!! The labneh cheesecake was also delightful, really light and fluffy Also Matt our server was absolutely phenomenal, we had great conversation and he was even doing some tricks with plate spinning

    Absolutely amazing! We enjoyed it so much last weekend with friends, that we booked for this weekend with the family. And it did not disappoint. All three (grown) kids plus one boyfriend, loved it. The attention to my need for gluten free as I am a celiac, was super impressive. Staff were attentive, made fabulous recommendations and we had the perfect amount of food for all six of us. We will all definitely be going again, and again, and again!
