The real lebanese
Probably the best lebanese food in town. The raw kibbe is fenomenal. The lamb kebab divine and the grape leaf rolls are the best.

Really excellent Lebanese food. Attentive service with a member of the owner family always hovering near.

Great food - loud live music
The dinner was great and they accomodated a big group very well. There was live entertainment which was great, however it was WAY too loud. I felt as though I had to yell when speaking even to the person sitting right next to me. I appreciated the entertainment and eveyrone in the restaurant did as well (people were dancing and singing along) but it was hard to enjoy the company of everyone at the table when we couldn't really communicate over the singing.
I would go back for the food for certain but I would proably make sure I was further from the singer.

Awesome "different" place
First time trying Lebanese and this was a great place to start. This restaurant isn't cheap by any means but it is very high quality. The service is impeccable.
I highly recommend the mixed grill and the striped bass as entrees. My guest and I split something that was similar to a quesadilla, however with goat cheese and seasonings, that was amazing.
All in all this is a beautiful restaurant that you will love.

Tasty and Entertaining
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!

Enjoyable and delicious
Family run Byblos prepares classic Lebanese food the way my family did. Fresh, well prepared and presented food with just the right spices. The appetizers and entrees were delicious. The owner and staff were welcoming and professional. We went on a weeknight and plan to return on a weekend for the music and belly dancer.

Great atmosphere and friendly party & lively music. If you appreciate middle eastern music and dance you will love it. Very nice family style, but lots of fun.

Party for 2
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.

Food like my grandmother used make!
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 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!
