I have been to Byblos multiple times and usually had a good experience. This time was a horrible experience. There were many issues with the restaurant. 1) The ground floor dining room had tables, couches and chairs that were mismatched in height. The couch was too low for the table and the outside chairs were too high. This created an awkward and uncomfortable seating situation at the table. 2) Drinks - The most egregious issue: When they served the initial Queen's High Tea, the bartenders put PARSLEY in the glasses, not mint. This was fine because we could take the parsley out, but a grave error. When we ordered our 2nd Citrus Spice G&T, the bartenders put and mixed in PARSLEY instead of mint. This was a horrible taste and ruined the drink and experience. It is clear that the bar was not knowledgeable or experienced. 3) Food delay - We ordered all of our dishes at once. All of the hot dishes came out surprisingly fast. We had ordered a Baby Gem salad and it did not arrive until 1/2 an hour after all of the other dishes had been served. We were done eating at this point. The kitchen timing was awful. 4) Food quality - The Black Truffle Pide was delicious as always, but the Lamb Ribs were so over-seasoned and spiced that they were not appetizing.

The food and service was an absolute delight. Our server Mario is full of experienced in food and beverage. As a chef l have never tasted Hummus and Manti in this way with a great balance of sweet, sour and savory. Crispy Chicken Dinner and Short Rib kebap was a bless. Especially truffle tzaziki sauce sound weird at first then when l taste it l fall in love with. Desserts were great, everything about the food is very well thought and presented. I cant wait to go there again. Totally recommended, two thumbs up 👍👍

Things were not served as they show on social media. Also ingredients added to dishes and not listed on the menu. I was unable to eat the chicken because of a food allergy. Our server did not check on us. The food while good was underwhelming. We ordered a signature cocktail that was to be served with a bubble of smoke, it did not come that way because smoke guns were not working but we were not told that. Just overall disappointing.

Amazing food. Loved the crispy artichoke and the lamb shoulder was mind blowing. Would get something different for desert. The baklava was good but we feel like some of the other choices may have been better. Our server was awesome. Great cocktails too!

Ambiance was great, really cool vibe and exactly what I was looking for in a south beach hotspot. The main con was the service. Place was not very busy and it took forever to get drinks. If I can get a drink reasonably fast I don’t care how long the food takes but over 30 min for a first drink is just irritating. My suggestion would be if you’re with a group, order a cheap bottle of wine for the table that they can bring out right away then everyone has a glass while waiting on mixed drinks which will take longer coming from the bar. Got the genie in a bottle drink and it was quite the show. Once we knew the deal we ordered another round every time the server came to the table which kept it at a better pace. Food was good.

Everything exceeded expectations. My favorite meal in Miami so far.

Only downside was some street noise (revving engines or loud music from cars) sitting outside, but the ambiance was excellent and you’re on Collins Ave in Miami so it’s par for the course.

I used to enjoy Byblos but I’ll never go back.
