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!

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.

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.

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 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.

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!

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.

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.

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).

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!
