We ordered 7 plates to share and every single bite was an incredible layering of flavors and textures. The service was attentive without overwhelming and the ambiance makes your meal feel special and trendy. I hope we can go back someday and I recommend it to everyone!
My birthday but only we knew.
Had to change seating 3 times. Air-conditioning etc.
Had to use flashlight to read menu. Too much ambience.
Great ambience and good food
I’ve been here before. The food is great and I love the music/ambiance/lighting.
I don’t like when waiters try to excessively push more food or alcohol. Like I get the reason to do it first to share what’s great or popular on the menu, but after getting “not sure if you ordered enough food” or when the food is brought out “see I said it was a small portion” that is just annoying. Not everyone over indulges on food and booze. Servers need to be taught to not do that.
Thank you Jenny for your kind review and feedback. We are grateful for the comments that would have advanced your experience with us.
From the service to the cocktails, music and tasting menu - it was perfection! Will always make a point to get a table when in Miami.
The food was very good as was the service. My only mild complaint is the volume of the music turned up pretty loud at around 630 7 o’clock. But we are a family looking for a different environment than many other diners in South Beach I assume. I would go again in a minute.
Thank Sheryl for your kind review, and for sharing feedback on what would have advanced your experience with us. It was a pleasure hosting you this weekend, and we hope to see you again soon!
Me encantó el ambiente y la comida.
Seating inside was noisy with very loud music. Air conditioning poor. We decided to sit outside so we could hear each other, despite humidity. Server took forever to bring ice water, which came very late, actually after our cocktails. And charged us for tap water, which we requested, instead of bottled water. Server forgot cauliflower side, lamb chops ordered med-well were xtra well done & chewy, hummus & pita bread was very good, rice was good, server made it sound like she was doing us a favor for taking cauliflower off the bill, as if we were gonna be charged for something we didn’t receive. No manager came to ask us how the experience is going. We were excited about our first experience at a Mediterranean restaurant but this was a disaster. Server neglected to tell us her 19% tip despite poor service is included in the bill. And valet parking at the Royal Palm is a scam. I was told it’s validated by Byblos for $16, but in reality the valet attendant wanted $40. Avoid this place if you don’t want to be disappointed.
We are saddened to learn of the challenges you encountered and would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you directly. Please send us an email at the email address we are sending to you privately, and mention this review. We look forward to hearing from you.
We came back after a phenomenal dinner on Tuesday. This time we were seated upstairs - highly recommended to sit up there in the “cathedral.” Arturo was an amazing server and he was supported by the very attentive staff. We enjoyed the Turkish manti dumplings, spinach pide, Branzino (absolutely delicious), couscous and Brussels sprouts. All were delicious, unique and well seasoned. They were kind enough to treat us to dessert after a very minor issue involving a food allergy, which they took care of right away. We had the Halva parfait and strawberry cheesecake. Both were delicious but the parfait was one of the best desserts we’ve ever had! Be sure to save room for dessert, but it’s hard because everything is so amazing. We tried the hummus royale and Spanish Octopus on the previous visit and they were both outstanding appetizers.
We couldn’t be happier to hear that you enjoyed a blissful evening at Byblos and were taken phenomenal care of by Arturo. It was a pleasure hosting you this weekend, and we hope to see you again soon.
Great ambiance and the most amazing food. A must to visit!
Thank you for your kind review!
What an experience! Food and service both were incredible. Each dish had such unique and amazing flavors. Highly recommend
Thank you for being our guest, Katie. We are grateful for your compliments!
Everything we had was delicious! We tried the hummus, octopus, and split the branzino and rock shrimp rice for the main course. This will be one of our recurring stops when in South Beach!
We appreciate this great review, and we look forward to your return!
This place was amazing. The service was unmatched. We sat outside and after a huge downpour started they seated everyone inside, replacing our food and alcohol free of charge. The food was also fabulous - middle eastern traditional cuisine mixed with a Miami twist. We enjoyed each of our courses!
Thank you! We are glad you enjoyed your experience and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Excellent food and ambience. Plenty of choices for vegetarians. The the Black truffle wood fired Pide was excellent. We also had Turkish dumplings for the first time and those were good too. Skip the kale salad - too much dressing and it came late - after main meal. Fun ambience adds to the experience with live music and a DJ who clearly likes what he does. It’s fun to see.
Thank you! We are grateful for your generous comments, and we are pleased that we could provide you with a seamless visit.
Delicious and vibrant take on Middle Eastern cuisine. Two suggestions: the signature drinks should have premium brand liquor in them (not Beefeater) and the grilled chicken should have something lighter than lentils like pearl couscous. Overall inspiring menu.
Thank you for your kind review, Reem! We hope to see you soon
It was great the host/server were amazing, however we had to wait 30 mins extra to be seated.
Thank you for your feedback and kind review. As a teachable moment, we are grateful for your comment that would have advanced your experience.
Made a reservation but still had to wait 45min to be seated. An additional 50min to get our food after ordering.
e are grateful for sharing the comments that would have advanced your experience with us. As a teachable moment, we have addressed your concerns appropriately and regret any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Wonderful dining experience. You must order the hummus - the best ever!! You might want to plan for a longer dinner experience though, we were there about 3 hours as main course took a while to get to our table.
Thank you for this great review!
Beautiful ambiance!! Drinks were great and food was pretty good - nothing that made you say WOW!
Thank you for this great review!
Amazing food, service, and ambiance!!!
Thank you, we appreciate this kind review!
Very delicious and reasonably priced food. Would come back again.
Thank you for being our guest at Byblos. We hope to see you soon!
Really liked the place. Will surely visited next time I am there in Miami. Awesome food, great service and very nice ambience.
Thank you for this kind review! We look forward to your return.
We are again here. The flavour combination is really good here. We felt this time round we had chosen not as good a selection as the last time. The octopus is delicious. The duck and date rolls are excellent. The crispy Couscous is bad. The tripple cooked fries not what we expected. The green beans are great. The short rib kebab nothing special. Our last meal was better. The Pinot noir reserve from Oregon was excellent (a surprise find).
Thank you for your kind review & feedback on your recent dinner with us at Byblos
The venue is very charming and cosy. The food is amazing and even if I knew about Mediterranean cuisine, Byblos offers original and tasty variations of traditional dishes. The cocktails are great and this a great spot for lovely dinner, whether to go on a date or with friends.
Thank you for being our guest at Byblos! We appreciate your generous compliments
One of the best restaurants in Miami that we always go to every single time we are there. This last time our server Mario was great, the food is delicious, the location is perfect, and it’s beautiful inside! Highly highly recommend Byblos!
Thank you for this amazing review! We will be sure to recognize Mario for his outstanding performance during your visit
What a beautiful spot! Our server, I believe her name is Jojo, was lovely. Since it was our first time at Byblos, we ordered the 3 course tasting and wine pairing. The tasting consisted of quite a bit of food: crispy artichoke, spinach pide, fried chicken, salmon, kale rice, stuffed baklava, and qatayef. All of it was delicious. Bring your appetite!
Thank you for being our guest at Byblos and for your kind review. We will enjoy sharing your compliments with Jojo!
Thank you for your kind review!
Great food and service. Will definitely come back and will refer friends also.
Thank you for the feedback! We are glad you enjoyed your experience and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Dated furnishings although I’m sure was very exciting when things were new. Could be cleaner. There was a dead bug in our menu and plate was dirty. Thankfully food was delicious !!
