We had a terrific evening at Byblos. Frank gave us great service, informative & attentive. We really enjoyed Black cod & short ribs kebab. Delicious wine & cocktails. We will definitely be back at this wonderful eatery.

What a delightful dining experience. The waitstaff was great, the drinks were delicious as was the food. The miami spice menu was full of amazing dishes to try and the flavors were rich and exotic. Highly recommend, even at the regular prices. Can't wait to go back.

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.

The restaurant and staff were great and very attentive. We were sat in the front of the restaurant so It’s a very small space and there’s a lot of traffic so every now and then you get people bumping into your chair. It is very loud in there: otherwise a great experience and good food

Took my parents and brother out for Miami spice, it was an awesome experience!! All the appetizers were excellent but the lamb ribs, the pideh and the duck Kibbeh really stood out! All the entrees were fantastic! Go with the fried chicken if you want bigger portions, the cod if you want something a little lighter, and the short rib if you want the best tasting entree but with the portion size being a little lack luster. Honestly can’t go wrong with any of them. The two dessert options were great, the pomegranate sorbet was light and fruity, the loukomedes was much richer with a strong honey flavor woven into each element of the dish. Overall, a fantastic meal!

Very good Middle Eastern food. Best we had was black truffle flat bread with buffalo mozz and halumi cheese. Also hummus was good and lamb ribs as well.
We shared the branzino which was charred, excellent!!
Restaurant is not cheap but the food is well worth it.
Would definitely go back!
Enjoy

We loved Byblos. Went there for the first time during Spice. The choices were varied and numerous. Our waiter was excellent, giving feedback and opinion when asked and another time spontaneously, which worked out much to our benefit. The food was creative, ethnic, and delicious. The special old fashioned was super awesome with that touch of coffee? Who would've known! We loved the - lamb ribs (probably our fave of the night) cod, duck, fried chicken(!!). We also very much enjoyed the crispy cous cous and the rice/lentil dish. Brussel sprouts were as they should be, nothing extraordinary. And the dessert... Loukoumades - was delightful and surprising, and I ate every last one of those donut balls, don't get me started! Thanks for a great dinner. We will be back!

The food was exquisite and plenty of it for the spice menu. I have to say my fave was the kale rice!! :) It was a Monday so the ambiance was quite quiet.

We went for Miami Spice and when they sat us down, they didn’t offer that menu, they gave us the regular one. We had to ask for the Miami Spice Menu and then the waiters attitude changed. Food was good but music was really loud. We felt like we’re being rushed out as well.

The restaurant is very trendy and fun and the food was delicious. I have eaten in many eastern Mediterranean restaurants worldwide and my thought was that Byblos was a bit pricy. The portions are pretty small...more of a tasting menu or tapas and based on that it was pretty expensive. I would recommend the restaurant but warn whoever of the cost.

Three of us (local suburbanites) had a wonderful Saturday night meal at Byblos. We went with the Miami Spice menu with some upgrades that were well worth it. Every dish was fantastic but the duck kibbeh, the Spanish octopus and the whole Branzino were spectacular. The whole Branzino was flawless, a perfect combo of seasoned crispy skin with buttery fish - it was sublime. Service was an unexpected pleasure (for South Beach) with our server Mario and his team, who somehow combined being casual, professional and unobtrusive all at the same time. They made the meal that much better. Great work by them and the entire restaurant - we'll be back.

Great atmosphere ! Great food ! The owner or the manager (not sure) is amazing person. Introduced us to the place, talked with us. The services is good, still room for improvement (took long time to come and serve us), but the evening and food was amazing so it covers it all.

Beautiful space that is nicely appointed with a great ambiance. The menu has a nice selection of really interesting choices that could introduce one to new ingredients while also satisfying the ‘picky’ eater.
Service, on the he other hand, leaves a lot to desire. While the wait staff seem personable and attentive, however inevitably prove to be either short staffed or insufficiently trained. A few of our dishes were apparently delivered to the wrong table by runners. Our waiter was obviously not keeping watch as it took forever to rectify the situation - we received these dishes when everything else was finished. And as the evening went on and the restaurant got busier, we were not offered more wine, coffees, etc., let alone anything to compensate for the mismanaged timing of our dishes. Meanwhile, the added attention by a couple of the waiters to a larger group of attractive young ladies did not escape our notice.
We had heard good things about Byblos and really wanted to have a special evening. We may give it another chance at a later date in the hope that they get their act together. But we fear that it may just be another ‘South Beach’ pretty spot with more glitz than glamor.

I would recommend the food but not the server I got, Adrian who had a bad attitude when we asked to the Miami spice menu after that the service continued to be bad, he also forgot one of the items ordered by us and pretended like we were just annoying. The food in the other hand was incredible, tasteful, good presentation, and aroma.

The food and service are both excellent. Some of the seating is not my type (couches/booth type seating) and the noise level is slightly louder than I like but I have no problem recommending Byblos to everyone I know.
