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.

The food at this restaurant is extraordinary- many levels above the regular food served at a “Mediterranean” restaurant (which I also like). The restaurant sits on a busy thoroughfare, but is set back from the sidewalk 30’ or so. The noise from the street is audible, but not overwhelming. The outdoor dining area was delightful on a spring evening. The hamachi starter is not to be missed - an amazingly complex flavor profile that makes every bite a sensation. The meat entrees each had their own unique seasonings that elevated them above the norm. We had ordered a salad and didn’t receive it before the main dishes, which I originally attributed to poor service. However, it came just as we were finishing the entrees, and it was the perfect finish to the meal. The server explained that the chef is very precise about which flavors should be served when (and with what) in the meal. All around, this was a fantastic dining experience.

I loved Byblos! The food was delicious and fresh. I split a salad and got a few sides with a friend and it was great and reasonably priced especially for Miami. The only thing that was not great is that they included tip but then didn’t make that clear on the payment portal. Not upset that server got 2x the tip though because he was super nice and helpful!

Amazing! Sharing style, sort off like tapas. We were two and shared: Turkish manti dumplings, hamachi, black truffle pide, and ras el hanout black cod. And for dessert, the stuffed baklava. Totally recommend it. Going back to try more of their dishes!

9pm reservations - had requested when I made the reservation that we wanted to sit upstairs in main dining room. Of course they only had a table downstairs by the service station - and directly over speakers in a banquet.
Not a good start, 2 of our party of 4 who sat on the banquet were about a foot lower than rest of us.
Service was mechanical- no one checked on us. The food was warm, not hot but good. When this restaurant opened years ago there were staff everywhere- explaining menus, asking how things were...no more.

Food runners dropped dishes and left with out giving us silverware - I had to walk the dining room and take silverware off empty tables...worse was our server never asked if we wanted another bottle of wine- and yeah...we did. Would have added another $20 in gratuity to the bill. Idiots.

When I walked to the reception stand to ask someone to find our server and bring us our bill, the server made sure to tell us that 18% gratuity was added but would could “ feel free” to add more.

When we left, 2 hostesses were in deep conversation no one said goodbye or asked how things were.

I write this just one week after our visit. We are now in Coronavirus emergency and every Saturday night time slot is wide open. We are not tourists, we live 10 blocks away. We are continuing to visit our local restaurants- ones that appreciate everyone’s business. Restaurants that practiced hospitality. Not Byblos.
