    The food at Byblos is always fresh, made to order and healthy. I love Lebanese food, but even if you have never tried it, you will find something on the menu to love. The service is outstanding, and the waiters will explain anything you are not sure of. The 3 of us shared a Mezze platter for 2 and with one additional appetizer it was enough for all of us. Great value!

    First time in Byblos and what an amazing surprise it was! Delicious truly Lebanese food. We got the appetizer sample platter, the grill chicken, meat and lamb and all the meats were outstanding! The salads with feta cheese were delicious and the rice with meat incredible. Great customer service and ambiance. We would love to go back.

    A fun place for a Saturday night! Dancing, etc., fabulous! Don't plan to have any intimate conversations though! Baba ganoush and vegetarian kibbee were great. Humus not very impressive. They put the pita on the table without any extras so it was pretty dry by the time any apps showed up. Would have been nice to have a little something on the table with the pita. Service is slow but seemed like staff was trying...

    We have been to Byblos many times , and we are never disappointed. My husband says he knows what he would want for his last meal: Byblos kibbe dinner. I would choose the Lebanese surf and turf. The most succulent lamb chops I’ve ever had. The most delicious shrimp. Each menu item is prepared with care and love. You can’t make a mistake with whatever you order. We will definitely be back.

    Started out amazing, great mezze and falafel hummus etc, all of the mezze was just top notch great. Their beef shawarma was odd. No toum or any kind of sauce, no pickled turnip just meat and onion in a thin pita. The beef tasted good and was not dry but after the spectacular mezze being so delicious we were surprised that the Shawarma was underwhelming just meat onions and bread. I know this place can do better than that!

    I had an amazing time at Byblos! It is an amazing experience! Food was great, service great and delicious drinks! Live music and the belly dancer made 10/10! We will definitely go back! If you want to seat close to the dance floor call them to make a reservation- open table don’t have access to where you will be seating.

    Was out shopping with the family and wanted something besides the mall offerings and found this on OpenTable. Solid Lebanese food. The hummus and felafel were great. The shawarma was poor - really more braised than the usual firm/crunchy flavorful texture. Fries were unsalted and mushy. Desserts were tiny and not good. Seems like this place has been around forever and is coasting. We won’t return.

    Our meal at Byblos Restaurant was spectacular. We ate outside on a beautiful fall evening, and while we did not need heaters nor an umbrella, they were available. Spacing between patrons' tables outside was good. The food, as always at Byblos, was spectacular. We enjoyed a spinach pie appetizer as well as our meals of moussaka and chicken kebobs. The fattoush and house salads were both great and authentically Mediterranean. The service was fantastic. Our waiter was personable, attentive and efficient. The manager came by to check on us as well. If you like Mediterranean food, you will love Byblos. If you have not tried Mediterranean food, you may want to give it a try at Byblos.

    My husband and I came to Byblos for a midweek dinner. We have been here many times and have never been disappointed. Each food item that came to the table was delicious, from the hummus and kibbe nayee to the perfectly cooked lamb chops that I ordered. Shout out to our server Khaled, who was excellent and had a good sense of humor too. Byblos never fails to disappoint.

    The venue was definitely something special for us, but the meal, for $90, didn't seem worth it (the $30 shrimp kebab dinner came with five shrimp). The lentil soup and house salad with feta were great.

Our server was wonderful and he made some great recommendations! The host was also great and made us feel at home.

    Three coworkers after a long day working at an elementary school. We had yogurt dip, spinach pie, fried cheese sticks and three different types of kebab meals. Also had sangria. All was delicious. Would definitely visit again. The waiter was nice, attentive and funny. A man came by who I presume was an owner after our meal to see how our meal was.
