Amazing food, inventive but delicious. Greatly appreciated the service as well. I always enjoy seeing the owner/manager ask tables how the experience is as it shows true investment.

Had a lovely meal however did ask to be moved seats (as did another couple we noticed) as the two seater tables as one seat was facing the wall which was a shame when you've got such a lovely restaurant to look at. The corner tables are definitely the best. We also went to the Speakeasy / hidden bar after dinner which had a great atmosphere and live music however we had to find this for ourselves, the waiters didn't tell us. Part of the secrecy maybe? The drinks in the bar are super expensive, however found the dinner menu to be reasonably priced. Overall, a lovely meal and would recommend for a date night.

I wanted a restaurant with a spectacular view/decoration/vibe for the first night of my sister’s bachelorette, so I picked Byblos. We were seated on the main floor, which is pretty but not the same as the top floor, as shown on their website. The girls who sat on the couch at our table felt like they were sinking in.

We started with the tomato and Persian feta salad. Then, ordered the chargrilled chicken supreme, rock shrimp rice, Persian kale rice, and green beans. The food was delicious. However, I will say that I was really disappointed that their menu online doesn’t match what you receive in person. There is a big “to share” section of meat and seafood items on the online menu, but the in-person menu says that only a few of those items are actually to share.

Our waiter was pretty annoyed because he felt we didn’t order enough food, even though we told him we’d had a very late lunch only 3 hours earlier. His attitude was unnecessary and really upset the girls in our group. The rest of the staff we interacted with were great. The sommelier was very helpful and knowledgeable.

The food did not disappoint. Unique and delicious with lots of sharing sized portions and small plates great for a date of a group. Service can be a little lax and some of the dishes came out cold but it was addressed immediately.

Every dish is outstanding, would highly recommend the pide (bread) appetizers, ahi tuna, cod, fried chicken, dumplings. Service was attentive but not intrusive. My only complaint would be that the front door is very loud and if you sit near the entrance, you hear it constantly open and close. They need to put some kind of noise reducer on it.

We ordered from the Miami Spice menu and there were many excellent sounding options. Everything was delicious and I would love to return to try more of the food. Our waiter however was awful- he disappeared for lengths at a time and was rude to us. We were fortunate that a woman who seemed to be a manager was close by - she stepped in to take our order after we had been sitting for 20mins. She also assisted when we were trying to get our check. If she had not been around, the meal would have taken much longer.

Dinner was great! The dinner was amazing.
Brunch is just average, nothing great. A LOT of Pita for sure...and eggs that I could make at home

One last recommendation: let the customers decide if they would like to tip 15% -18% -20 % or more, the restaurant charges 19% (not 15, no 18%) but 19% w/o even asking

My wife took me here to celebrate my birthday. Byblos was one of my favorite restaurants in Miami. The food here as always was fantastic! You can count on anything Byblos makes as being delicious. However, we received the worst service we have experienced at any restaurant. It made the meal a disaster. I am never one to complain and hated to do it on my birthday dinner. However, when I did they wouldn't bring out a manager. Instead, I am to wait for a call. It's only been four days, but I haven't received a call and I would be surprised if I ever do. I expected a place of this caliber to be a bit more respectful to their guests.

We enjoyed the entire dining experience- delicious food, gracious service and a non-South Beach loud club ambiance (back dining room with bar on 2nd level). The interior designer selected great treatments so you can actually have a conversation with others at your table (draperies, soft sofas and well-placed rugs to help acoustics- bravo!). Clientele was refined and well-dressed (no shorts/flip flops).
Creative middle Eastern menu offers selections for carnivores and vegetarians- delicious! Wine selection was decent and pairs well with menu. See you again soon!

We had a great experience! It was my husband’s second time at Byblos....he loved the food, so we came back. It did not disappoint! We had the Miami Spice menu- which was delicious. The service was exceptional! There were several people making sure we had a great dining experience. Our main server, Tony, was fantastic!

We had the most wonderful experience at Byblos this week. It was our first time visiting and working in the industry, the staff and management team made us feel super welcome and appreciated. It’s hard to find good hospitality in this city but you guys didn’t disappoint. The mini spice menu was amazeeeee. The cocktails list was unique the service was on point and the food was so good we didn’t skip a bite. Thanks for everything !

We decided that we wanted to try at least 10 of the restaurants offering Miami Spice menu. We arrived at 6PM for our 6:30 reservation. The table that they offered was the least favorable in the whole place ( they never mentioned the upstairs as an option). When the waiter came to the table he explained the menu and his favorite dishes. When I asked for the Miami Spice menu he appeared to be annoyed especially since he offered bottle water only and I insisted that Miami tap was fine. The food was very good. Interesting spices, perfectly cooked fish, and better yet our waiter’s favorite dishes were all part of the Miami Spice menu. If you decide to go insist on a table upstairs...downstairs is not as nice and the music was way too loud.

Miami Spice Brunch was a great value. The food is excellent. Service was mediocre. The place is cute but very loud. Would come back. Hopefully, it’s a little more quiet for dinner.

Excellent. We'll be back.
Service was good but fell apart at desert. We sat for 20 minutes with nothing.
When we suggested that they at least send us coffee while we waited, they did. But then they charged us for the coffee. Slight disappointment--though everything else was great.

We checked this place out before we came to the city and went during Miami Spice week.
The restaurant is beautiful. Hands down. It sets you off on the right foot for a fantastic experience.
Our server, Anthony, was helpful and attentive without being over-bearing and explained everything to us clearly.
We tried the roasted egg plant, spinach pide, ahi tuna and the baby gem salad for appetisers. Everything comes straight to the table when it’s ready, meaning that you don’t wait long and everything is served at its absolute best!
For mains we had the fried chicken and the beef rib with sides of roasted sprouts. The chefs have managed to take familiar flavours, give them a Mediterranean twist and produce something out of this world.
100% would recommend.

This visit was on a Thursday evening; the much more appealing upstairs main dining room is only open Friday/Saturday this time of year so “ambiance” suffers.

We always love Byblos. It’s such a comfortable place to enjoy a meal...beautiful surroundings and great service. Not only does it offer an unusual menu of Mediterranean dishes, but everything is perfectly prepared. For all the times we’ve eaten at Byblos, we’ve never had a “miss.” We order to share everything and our favorites are the pide, lamb, fried chicken, rice mixtures, cornish hen. Everything is always perfectly done. And we enjoyed chatting with Gary. Can’t wait to return.
