Mediterranean
Byblos represents a marriage of Eastern Mediterranean cuisine with strong influences from both traditional and local ingredients, using time-honored classic cooking techniques and modern methods. Our chef has created dishes that showcase the regionally-specific spices and flavours of the Eastern Mediterranean seaboard to craft a menu that will be a true coastal and cultural mosaic, served family style in a convivial atmosphere.

The recently introduced Lounge at Byblos is a nightlife destination that extends the Byblos Miami dining experience into late night comfort, privacy and glamour. The intimate 2300 square-foot lounge features weekly resident DJ’s, unique entertainment, creative cocktails and bottle service.

We went to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The staff could not have been more accommodating. The food was absolutely amazingly! Chef Abel came to the table to make sure everyone was happy. He served a meal that was prepared to perfection. I will definitely go back!
One of the best meals I’ve had in quite a long time. I highly recommend Byblos to everyone!

I would highly dissuade anyone from attending this restaurant. The host stand ruined our night before even being seated. We arrived 5 minutes early, and asked for an expectation on timing. They claimed they were on time and we had nothing to worry about. We had to continually go up to the host stand from the bar, and we’re continually lied to about the expectation of how long it was to get seated. When we finally got seated, we got seated in a garbage table next to the door, and we’re told it would be another 45 minutes to get a better table. Simply put, it ruined our night and everything about the restaurant. Screw this garbage place.

Amazing food, the Hummus Royale was my husband’s favorite and the house signature dish, the Turkish Manti Dumplings were mine. Amazing decor and ambiance, cool crowd. Loved it!

in Miami for vacation and this was recommended for us. Incredible food and service. We took all of our waiters suggestions on food and drinks and everything was delicious. The manti dumplings and hamachi are NOT to be missed. For a very picky eater the cod was outstanding. Brussels side and fried chicken also delicious. We ordered the hummus and kale rice as well - both incredibly good but would not order again next time (only because i feel there are other more exciting dishes to try).

Waiter tried to overcharge us. Bill was split three ways and $30 was “accidentally” added to the tab in addition to the 21% automatic gratuity. Tab was already $420 so more of a principle thing than anything. Very disappointing.

We didn’t get seated until 50 minutes after our reservation. Our table half broken so we had to wait another 20 minutes for another table. Food took ages to arrive. Once the food did arrive it was very good but the wait was too much. Also, there was a 20% gratuity automatically added to the bill for a table of 2. This was not communicated and the ink on the receipt was half missing so I’m sure plenty of people double tip. I would go back for the food, but make sure I eat before in preparation for the wait.

Extremely cold with air conditioning and food and service was not to the standard of the prices. Lentil rice was bland and tasted as though it was plated directly from boiling water which had not been salted. If you’ve been to the Toronto locations I don’t recommend going to this location. Same food but quality is no where as good as the two in Toronto. Very disappointing.

Wonderful food, ambiance, and service. Went for an early dinner on New Year’s Day, and we loved it. Would recommend the Turkish dumplings for a starter and the burnt honey ice cream for dessert!

Everything is absolutely delicious though portions are on the small side, especially for those dishes deemed ‘shareable.’ Service was friendly and professional and the restaurant is beautiful. Sit upstairs for a more vibrant (and loud!) atmosphere...downstairs for a more intimate setting.

Overall highly recommend!

We had an excellent experience at Byblos. We went there for a pre-show dinner and our waiter (Juan) made extra effort to ensure we were out on time. He also paid special attention to our 8 year old daughter which was a nice touch. The food was very unique and tasted excellent. Thanks for a great night!

This is one of the best restaurants in Miami. The food is outstanding, the servers are very welcoming and the ambiance is fun. Beware the music is quite loud so maybe not best choice for the grandparents.

The restaurant is stunning and the food incredible. For the cost, I wish the portions were a little larger. All plates are meant to be shared, but it was difficult to do so with the five people I went with. Also, this is probably the only restaurant in the country that charges for water - their “tap water” is “purified” and they charge $3 per person.

Garbage. This place is a Greek jersey diner with loud top 40 music and horrendous service. This is where rich girls in big wide brim hats go to hear their voices echo. The waiter took so long to come to our table we left. Never again. Please steer clear of this tourist trap.

Both the food and service were fantastic. We made late reservations on a Friday and they were able to get us in. Definitely worth a visit and it will become a go-to place for us when visiting Miami Beach.

Wonderful, innovative Mediterranean cuisine. Excellent menu variety. Truly something for all tastes. Servers were a little too quick to try to remove unfinished dishes, however, which at this price point is something which needs to be remedied. That one small complaint aside, the service was otherwise outstanding and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Hope to return soon.
