Horrible service, appetizers took way too long and our server barely waited on us. Music and ambiance was great.
Our waiter was absolutely amazing and attentive! The food was an incredible mix of Mediterranean, Turkish and middle east. We loved everything!
The food was incredible, the service was outstanding (Franklin was AMAZING and made the experience perfect. He was so knowledgeable about the menu, had great recommendations and was friendly and attentive. Great ambiance and music.
Thank you for being our guest at Byblos. We will enjoy sharing your compliments with our beloved Franklin, and we hope to be your regular dinner spot.
Really interesting Turkish inspired middle eastern food richly seasoned and beautifully presented. Servers friendly and helpful. Go with a group and share!
Great advice! Thank you for enjoying our sharing concept!
Favorite restaurant in South Beach. Best lamb ribs and manti!
AMAZING dinner, service, foods, drinks. Cannot say enough good things about this place !
We love the food and come to the restaurant often
Gary knows us and I wonder why we got charged $9 for TAP water
Hi there, we are so happy to hear from our beloved regulars of Byblos. We assure you we only serve ultra-purified Purezza water in our restaurant. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
INCREDIBLE FOOD! and SERVICE! Not what you expect when you pull up to the hotel, but the experience and price was amazing.
We couldn’t be happier to hear that you enjoyed a blissful evening at Byblos. It was a pleasure hosting you last weekend, and we hope to see you again soon.
This is a beautiful restaurant, the hostess and staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our specific server was a little busy so some items we noticed other tables received were not provided to us. Great date night spot to impress. Food was good but sometimes too much is overwhelming. The garlic butter was overpowering. Over all 3.5/4 but I would come back during a less busy time, we came for Saturday evening. Although I noted we were celebrating a birthday nothing special was done.

Will remain my favorite Miami restaurant. The layers of food flavor, the service and presentation are outstanding
We are so honored to hear we're your favorite restaurant in Miami. Thank you for these kind words and we look forward to your next visit.
We enjoyed this meal so much! The bar had unique drinks and great beer to choose from. We waited for our table to be ready there and met fun people and had great conversation.
Once we were seated upstairs we ordered the hummus Royale, the crispy artichoke, gem salad, the lamb shoulder for 2, green beans and truffle rice. It was ALOT of food! We loved every dish, the service was very good, and we felt it was priced well. We brought the extra food to my parents and they really enjoyed the leftovers. We will Definitely return to eat here anytime we are in South Beach!

We enjoyed our meal at Byblos. The food was tasty and the service was great!
Thank you for joining us!
My husband and I dined at Byblos with another couple on a busy Friday evening. We had the four-course tasting menu, which makes sense for the entire table to do because everything is shared. Although three of my group started with cocktails, which were delicious, I chose the wine pairing as well. The first course was a selection of cold appetizers, the second course was warm appetizers, third was a selection of entrees with two side dishes and the last was a selection of desserts. From start to finish the meal was absolutely superb. We argued over which course was the best but we all agreed that everything we ate was memorable. The portions were generous and so uniquely flavorful, I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Don't miss it!
Thank you for this beautiful review. We are so happy you opted for the tasting menu, it is a great experience. We can't want to have you back at Byblos.
This is just a splendid experience. The staff are all professionals. The food is well prepared and executed. The 24 hour lamb shoulder is a highlight. Drinks are creative, too. Enjoy!
Thank you. We are grateful for your generous comments, and we are pleased that we could provide you with a seamless visit.
The tomahawk was incredible. Fried chicken also unreal. Best restaurant in Miami we ate at this week.
We are so pleased to read this. Thank you, and come back and see us soon.
I went there for my birthday and Byblos did not disappoint. The ambiance, the service was fantastic. Also, the restaurant sent out shots for my birthday for my party to enjoy which was a great touch. It was a great birthday celebration and I will be returning in the future. Arturo was a great waiter and took care of us all night.
Bar tender never told us an 18% or 19% tip was included and we added another 15%, really? In MA you are required to tell the customer the tip’s included. We felt ripped off. The lamb shoulder was closer to pull pork. Charged for bread, charged for every tea; chintzy. Overall just ok. Would not recommend.

Easter Sunday Dinner. Great ambience and good food make for a special dining experience.
Thank you for celebrating Easter with us at Byblos. We hope to see you here again soon.
Wish I could give 5 stars. Am COVID conservative so I only dine outside. All the servers and runners wore masks that covered the mouth and nose. The hostesses’ masks did not cover their noses. The hostesses greeted people indoors with their exposed noses. Not sure why the manger permits this. I pointed it out to my server and he said it’s odd. Also no soap in the bathroom. Makes me question hygiene and attention to detail.
Great food and service
Looking forward for our next visit
Made us wait at the bar for 40 minutes and order $25 drinks . Finally sit down order and wait another 30 minutes for appetizers to arrive. Last time I’ll dine here.
Fantastic experience! Amazing time with family---loved the shared food and outdoor dining. Waiter was fantastic!
Order a table for 9:30pm got seated more than an hour later food was served after 11pm, had stomach flew the next day. Terrible service, waiter got the order and never bothered with us again. When I complained they explained that it’s very busy...really???
Hi Ally, this is not what we like to hear. We would like to help resolve this for you. We will send you a private message with our email so we may be in touch directly. Be sure to mention this review so we can address quickly.
The music was so loud you couldn’t hear the person beside you, let alone across the table. We politely asked several times for the music to be turned down. Nothing happened. We won’t go back.
Hi Melissa, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. We are believers that feedback is the only way to grow. We will reach out privately to discuss further.
The waiter service was really slow, we had to keep asking for someone to find our server.
The waiter told us food was taking a long time to come out of the kitchen and advised us to order everything we wanted, after we commented we wanted to order as we go. We took her advice but The food came out all at the same time within 10 mins, with all the food crammed onto a small 2 seater table making it difficult to enjoy and also making half the stuff cold by the time we made it around all the dishes.
Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your recent experience at Byblos.

Lamb ribs were delicious. Great atmosphere and location!
We were on a family vacation at the neighboring Loews hotel and wanted to try something new. So glad we did, amazing experience, service and vibe. We had 3 teenagers with us and our server made great suggestions for the picky eaters in the bunch. We all agreed this is now a go to for every visit to Miami.
Thank you for being our guest at Byblos. We will enjoy sharing your compliments with our team, and we are excited be your first evening spot every time your travels bring you to Miami.
Service was very friendly but required to work to many tables

Absolutely best short rib ever in my life
We agree! Thank you for the review :)
Went to dinner with my three kids. They loved the dishes so much they kept reordering the same ones. Beautiful outdoor ambiance. Our waiter was very nice, attentive and gave great recommendations. Wasn’t cheap but definitely worth it

The food was amazing, service was great. I had two kids with me, yet the staff treated us well
We are so happy to hear you loved your experience with us as we strive for excellence every day. We hope to have you back soon. Thank you!
This is an excellent restaurant. The upstair area is richly decorated and still warm and pleasant. Beets, dumplings, and sujuk were the staters. Then lamb, fried chicken and rock shrimp. Split the stuffed baklava for dessert. Good service and they took the time to clear plates between courses. Highly recommend Byblos.
Thank you for visiting Byblos. We are grateful for your generous comments, and we are pleased that we could provide you with a seamless visit.
The pictures online are absolutely deceiving. The place is nowhere as nice as depicted and the crowd is tragic to say the least
