Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I discovered the joys of Lebanese and Middle Eastern food on visits to London and have been searching for a similar experience in NYC. Byblos is the best so far. Food is tasty, modestly priced and it is a great restaurant to come with a group. Their grill turns out uniformly tasty chicken, lamb and kebabs. Inexpensive Lebanese wines and great fresh mezzes make this a great place to enjoy a fun dinner with friends."

  • "We were seated promptly upon arrival. Food is top-notch. Service was extremely hospitable. We were greeted by the owner. Appetizers were great, ranging from the spinach pie to hummus, falafel and fava beans. We like the freshness of the seafood and mixed grill. Portions are generous; come hungry! Overall, consistent and a great third visit to the restaurant. The restaurant was spacious, well-lit and inviting."

  • "Byblos was recommended to me by my friend who is Lebanese who said that Byblos is the best Lebanese restaurant in NYC. I agree. We ordered the hummus with pine nuts, the Lebanese sausage appetizer, the mixed grill entree and the grilled branzino, all of which was delish, especially the branzino. We also ordered a bottle of Lebanese wine which was fantastic. Byblos is best for large groups. They easily accommodated a birthday party for 50 people while we were there + several other groups of 5-8 people. In fact, we were the only table of 2. It's not a particularly beautiful restaurant and it doesn't have much ambiance, but the excellent service, great food and live music make it a fun dining experience. Our entire bill was $150. Not bad"

  • "Went as a party of six, many restaurants in the area had only after 8pm dinner on a Saturday evening, but Byblos came through! Outstanding service from the initial greeting to the two waiters who served our party. We were new to Lebanese cuisine, but the waiter recommended the price fixed dinner which included a large appetizer sampler, our individual choice of main course, plus Lebanese dessert and coffee. We definitely will return when in the New York City area, and I highly recommend Byblos to friends and anyone!"

  • "I needed a last minute restaurant for dinner after work with family. We all like to try different kinds of food, and we are no strangers to Mediterranea/Lebanese dishes. Everything was superb! The appetizer list was fantastic, and if you like to try a little bit of everything, Byblos is great to order a bunch of different appetizers or bakery items to share. Between four of us, we shared the garlic dip, falafel, meat pie, spinach pie, cheese pie, chopped salad, hummus, and chicken kebobs--all were incredible! The waitress also kept bringing me extra tahini, because I said I loved it so much. Highly recommended!"

  • "If you love Lebanese food you will love this restaurant. The spices are perfect and the food unbeatable. The squash in yogurt sauce is my favorite. We had an early dinner and the restuarant was not too busy."

  • "I had an early dinner (7pm) on saturday with my wife and the restaurant was quite empty. Service was quick and nice and the same was food. They have a good wine list at decent prices. While we were leaving a big Group of lebanes came in for a family gathering. I guess this a good sign of the restuarnt being a real lebanes one. Overall, I would go back again."

  • "Just love this place. The food and appetizers are just awesome. Also, you can't beat the affordable wine selection for NYC. The belly dancer was great and recommend arriving later to see it (after 9PM) as she performs between 10:30 to 11:00. Will definitely return!"
