Go on a date or with friends. Yesterday, Fri, they had a DJ. Kadson, our server, was friendly, knowledgeable and into every detail. Menu is varied and the food tasty. Service is fast and efficient. This is our fourth time there.

The experience had a bad start as the hostess told us she wasn’t sure when she could seat us despite a reservation… it was raining and people seated outside wanted to get in. after some negotiation we were seated at our table… the waiter was nice but a bit salesy. Food was good although I thought a couple of notches down vs. my first visit few years ago.

Came here with two friends, but when we arrived, they did not have a table for 3 ready. They added a chair to a two-top but it was a bit cramped. Seems like this place only has room for parties of 2 or parties of 8 - no in-between. The lighting was a bit too dark which made it hard to read the menu or get good photos of the food. I think it would've been nicer to sit outside. As far as the food - we had the ribs, the med salad, the fried chicken, the green beans, the cauliflower, the french fries, and the chickpea rice. Plus wine. None of the dishes stood out as anything special. The chicken did not have enough flavor - needed salt or something at the very least. The salad was quite nice but still just a Greek salad. Did not enjoy the rice. The service was slow but it was a busy Thursday night. I would go here if you want a romantic date ambience on South Beach but I'm unlikely to return myself.

Amazing food and drinks! Gorgeous restaurant. Wouldn’t say it’s the best value for your meal but if you’re willing to splurge a bit - it’s a great spot.

Great service, but too fast, we got
There at 9:30, by 10:30 everything was done we felt kind of rushed.

But the service was on point and efficient, I’ve never seen drinks comes
This fast in my life

Food was good but the chicken with the lentils was tasteless and dry, and the rice with shrimp is a total nonsense

Food was great! Service was good. The temperature was cold, as the front door was always open. The noise level was severe, as it was loud and almost techno beat like you’d hear in a fitness center!!! Hard to hear each other talk!! Definitely not Mediterranean music, as the restaurant was billed as.....

Byblos was a good restaurant with good food. That said, for the price it wasn’t mind blowing. We really enjoyed two dishes and thought the other two were just ok. Almost $200 for two people with just two drinks. Definitely pretty good but I wouldn’t go back

The Manti was great and recommend the Octopus as well. A bit pricey for the portion sizes and slow service but would recommend giving them a try!

Loud music inside. Outdoor pretty. The food was good but could of be better. Mediterranean middle eastern food it is my favorite food. Did not understand rice with truffle. I think it just did not go well with basmati.

This was an absolute gem of a find! It has a totally unique Miami Club meets MiddleEast vibe. Decor was super unique and the music was a mix of lounge club DJ and a live electric violinist. Together, they sounded like a movie soundtrack. Awesome.

With the mood set, get ready for some of the best food you'll have. Everything was fantastic. Heavy middle eastern influence, but very approachable. Chicken, Octopus, Salmon and Lamb dishes were unreal. The only miss was the beef short rib wasn't quite tender enough (but still great flavor).

The only negative was that it was very windy and the open doors created a swirl of chilly air all night. However, that's a nit. Definitely a must.

Everything was delicious! When you only have a few meals to plan for a weekend visit, you really rely on each one to be a good choice. This restaurant did not disappoint! Fun vibe, attentive waitstaff and interesting, flavorful dishes.

Grate services, the waiter is very thoughtful and knowledgeable about menu. He was really trying to accommodate us. The food is delicious, simple in a good way and super tasty - every dish has unique hint of spices enhancing but not overwhelming the taste of ingredients. Kudos to chef!

The only issue is seating. We set next to the entrance on a relatively cold day, and the entrance door was constantly opening and closing emerging with unpleasant wind. It definitely spoiled my experience. I hope restaurant thinks of this as we well as about food.

Very moody lighting led the way to our upstairs cozy table. Ordered a great bottle of Pinot Noir. We had the hummus very good although we both would have preferred a little less sweet, dumplings were also very good but sweet factor was a bit much, then we had the bread stuffed with sausage that was delish! For dinner we shared the 1/2 fried chicken it was like an upscale chicken finger. I’m glad we went for the atmosphere and good food. I don’t think we’d rush to go back.
