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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
