Great food, great ambience and great service! I will definitely go back.
Not sure if this was an ‘off’ night for them but we didn’t have a great experience. Service was non-existent. We literally waited 20 mins before we flagged someone down to order drinks, and then we were told they didn’t know who was supposed to be serving us. Our main courses didn’t arrive for over 2 hours. Waited 30 mins between courses. Taste of certain things was amazing, other things, terrible. Cocktails were delicious but very overpriced. Wanted to love it. Overrated.
My friends and I really loved this restaurant! The food was amazing (recommend the fried eggplant and short rib kebab), along with the service and ambiance! Def want to go back.
Cocktails and food were exquisite! Service was excellent!
Our first get together for a meal since February 2020 and it was a lovely experience.
Overall a very positive experience, given the outstanding quality of the food! We ordered roasted beets, hamachi, black truffle & cheese side and the short rib kebab. They were all delicious! Good service and relatively quiet (we went on a Sunday evening and there were plenty of empty tables. I wonder what the noise level is when at full capacity?)
Food as amazing as always.
The meal was very good. It’s a fun environment ideal for sharing food. All the dishes were excellent - interesting, inventive and delicious. The Restaurant was quite busy and yet the service did not suffer. I would suggest they invest in a coat check. One was not offered so we had to sling our coats over a chair.
Food is fantastic
My favourite place to dine!!!!
Food and atmosphere amazing
I eat out 3 to 4 times a week. Worst restaurant experience I have had in years. The staff hardly attended our table, the food was over or under cooked and was an hour and a half between appetizers and main course. At no point was there an apology or explanation by the restaurant. Only at the end of the meal when we expressed our dissapointment did the manager come by. Not the same Byblos experience as downtown and would have enjoyed a meal at McDonald's more.
Excellent! The food is great and loved the ambience. Service is fantastic as always :)
one of the best Middle Eastern restaurants in Toronto! The food was fresh & delicious!
I loved my tomato and cucumber salad. The lamb shoulder was just OK. I had hoped there would be vegetables with it. The flavors and spices used here are wonderful but the variety of things on the menu that are for me is small. Our semifreddo desert was also just OK. As well then noise level was very high and so I would not pick this restaurant if I was going out with friends.
Excellent food , Great service.
Turkish dumplings, beet salad, cauliflower, truffle pide and short rib were very good. Marrakesh garden cocktail is very refreshing
One of the best experiences I’ve had for the first time attending, service was great and the waiters service was outstanding.
So delicious !! Rather loud but has a very swanky vibe that feels lively and fun.
Byblos is delicious elevated middle eastern food. Dishes are extremely tasty and the two floor restaurant is gorgeous: we look forward to going back.
WAITRESS WAS PERFECT FOOD ARRIVED QUICKLY AND IM COMING BACK NEXT WEEK. SO HAPPY WITH MY EXPERIENCE.
Great vibe and the food was very tasty! Good place to go with friends or on a date!
Byblos uptown is my favourite location. I love the ambience and find the food qaulity is better as well
Fantastic very impressive. I don’t usually treat friends for nice dinners I’m 21 but you guys do a great job. :)
Not a lot of options for food! However, the plates are tasty. Ambience is very relaxing!
Over priced restaurant where wait staff look like they walked off the street and grabbed a dish and delivered it to tables and most of the time were confused as to which table to take it to.
WILL not return.
Went here for my hubby's birthday. Really enjoyed our meal and the ambience was great.
Food temp = Lukewarm
Food quality = Lacked flavour. Different experience from other Byblos locations.
Server = Didn't seem to like his job. Little to no conversation. Asked for hot sauce, didn't bring it out.

Dear MoDe, Thank you so much for your kind words. I am very happy to read that you enjoyed everything, especially the Lamb Ribs. They are truly fantastic. Best regards, Eric Pan Assistant General Manager Byblos Uptown
Impeccable food and ambiance. Did not feel other patrons were on top of us in this cosy and spacious atmosphere. Food is flavourful and delicious; my only complaint is that price of the cod for what you actually get is overpriced (very small fillet).
Dear Ginji, Thank you so much for taking your valuable time to write a thorough review about your experience. I am happy to read that you found the food flavourful and delicious. I do apologize that you did not find value in the Fogo Island Cod. Once again, thank you and we hope to see you again very soon. Eric Pan Assistant General Manager Byblos Uptown
