  • "If you are thinking about coming to Byblos, DO IT!! You will not be disappointed. We went based on many other reviews and we were not led astray. We like to try new restaurants and different food. We had never been to Byblos as we don't live in Toronto. The waiter was very helpful in helping us choose our selections. He did not steer us wrong. We loved everything. He kept our water glasses full and food was brought out at the right time. He even suggested drinks. I wanted to try them all! We left full and happy. If I were to give a knock against anything it would be that they charged for the refill of soda my daughter ordered. Oh well, it wouldn't stop me from going back!"

  • "We had heard great things about this restaurant. We were heading to a concert and had to be out in just over an hour. Our server was extremely accommodating and helpful. He had wonderful recommendations that were time sensitive. Everything was delicious, especially the Gulab drink (with rose, lemon and cardamom) as well as the lamb ribs and fig salad. We will be back again!"

  • "This is one of the best experience we have had in a restaurant for a long time. Every dish tastier than the other.... the use of spices done to perfection. An elegant and special experience in middle east food!"

  • "If you're over 40, you might want to make sure you get out before 10pm when the DJ starts up and makes the space deafening. Long wait times for really unique food. NOT for before theatre. Great for a date that you really want to talk with."

  • "This was my third time at Byblos because the food is great! Fresh, delicious, not what one may expect because we are not exposed to much high end Middle Eastern food in Toronto. Crispy eggplant was amazing, as was everything we had. Great service and very interesting wine list."

  • "The octopus was wonderful and the hand-rolled couscous was texturally delicious. Cocktails were a hit and our server was attentive. Eric, the manager was very friendly, accommodating and professional. Kudos."

  • "This is a great place to go with a group so you can order lot's of great dishes. The concept is Tapas style, Middle Eastern, Turkish and Israeli food. We enjoyed our dinner, the food was also a good value. The Shakshouka was a standout, the crispy eggplant and the Kibbeh ( similar to falafel only better) were also memorable. The cauliflower side was amazing! Mr. Harji was present and this is why the restaurant although quite new runs so smoothly."

  • "Have the dumplings! The menu is a little complicated, with many unfamiliar (for some) ingredients, but the passionate and attentive staff make it easy by recommending their favourites and all our plates were really delicious. Our waiter was quiet, but always present when we needed anything. The wine he suggested, Nigl - Austrian, was great. Late sun flooded in the low windows as we arrived (late May, 18:30p.m.). "

  • "I read good things about this place. But it surpassed expectations. Food was interesting and delicious. It was food derived from the Middle East but unlike any I have had before. So delicious and the varied flavors me for a sensational meal.the service was as suburb as the meal"

  • "Refined, precise, and contemporary approach to near eastern cuisine - think Turkey, think Lebanon and Israel etc. Tantalizing taste combinations appear throughout a well designed menu. Figs meet kohlrabi and pistachio in a delightfully fresh salad. Small plates and larger allow opportunities to sample a variety. You should try many! Service was attentive courteous and clearly informed. Numerous friendly servers. Loved this place!"

  • "I used Open Table to find a restaurant with 'french' food in Toronto. The closer place to my hotel was 'cocktail parlor', that is advertised as restaurant. They only serve few (like 10 different to choose from) appetizers at a premium price, flavor and presentation are excellent, but at a premium cost, like a bar, not a restaurant at all. Went there for dinner, were very disappointed. should not be advertised as restaurant."
