I would recommend this place to anyone, service, atmosphere, presentation, and food was amazing.

The appetizers and sides were phenomenal, however, the main course left a bit to be desired for the price on the flavor.

All in all, a great place I’ll be returning each time I visit South Beach.

Great food, full of flavors and very well presented; nice indoor ambiance, and excellent service. We will definitely go back!
My only recommendation is to leverage more the outdoor space -chairs were old, sofas were extremely dirty- if they work on those details, it will be a win 100%. This is a really nice restaurant to enjoy an excellent dinner in Miami Beach.

Great food, good service. They sat us 35 min late, which was frustrating, and tried to do so at a very inconvenient table to start when we had called ahead to say we were looking to create a special experience for friends from out of town. But, overall, good experience. Also, best Miami Spice in town.

The attention to detail is extraordinary here--from the moment you walk in, to the trip to your table (welcoming wait staff greet you in passing) to the Eastern Mediterranean meal itself! Be prepared for a lively, club-like atmosphere. But unlike night clubs, Byblos serves up dishes fantastically dressed in the flavors of Lebanon, Iran, et al. On this occasion, we topped off dinner with a chocolate hazelnut mousse paired with a delicate grappa with just enough edge to it. Incredibly good!

Vibe and music was great but way too loud for a Thursday evening. I came to eat, not to be in a club. It was hard to hear the server and my date. So silly.

That said, the food was delicious and I have zero complaints. The baklava however is not such, it’s something more like a pirouette cookie. This was the only disappointment aside from the insane volume of the music.

Miami Spice menu was good. We enjoyed the lamb appetizer and the steak. The habanero hot sauce was just what we needed. But with all the hype we expected more. The palm trees at both sides of our table were in our hair - and listening to the throbbing base of the music doesn't do justice to the chefs creations and made conversing difficult.

Except for extremely slow service from the waitress, all else was perfect- including bus boys who did the work that waitress was supposed to do. Food outstanding
Quality excellent.
Greek beer terrific too.
Just the waitress never showed up except to take order and collect payment. Seems that a fine dining place like Byblos should train waitress to be attentive to customers.

10/10. We went to try this restaurant, miami spice menu. The service from the beginning was friendly. The ambiance is nice, energetic, I mean for us perfect for a dinner on a Saturday night! Great music! They had a DJ inside súper good music! The miami spice menu here includes two appetizers, one entree and one dessert. It’s a lot of food! For the value it’s totally worth it! The food was delicious!! We ordered: lamb ribs, duck kibbeh, hummus, and kale salad for appetizer. For the entree we had grape leaf wrapped cobia and skirt steak. The dessert was baklava and strawberry cheesecake qatayef. I definitely recommend this place and I’ll be back soon
