Great service & fantastic food
Great food for a great birthday 🎈
Our waiter was superb. His recommendations for both food and wine were over the top excellent!
Byblos had good food . The only recommendation I have is having better communication in terms of parking. We didn’t mind valet , they could’ve just assisted better in offering the validation sticker before leaving the restaurant so it won’t be miscommunication with the Valet people.

Miami Beach has become a terrible, scary neighborhood. The food was ok but wouldn’t go back. The waiter was sweet and thoughtful.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. We hope to have an opportunity on your next visit to the area to provide the flawless hospitality you deserve.
My friends and I chose to have the Three Course Experience and it was very pleasant, great food and I love that they offer the experience where it is a surprise of what you get from the menu !
Thank you for this great review!
Atmosphere 8/10: Well decorated. Lights very dim. Nice live music and DJ, but gets loud at some point.
Food 6.5/10: As a person from the Mediterranean, food in general is average. The kebab and sujuk were tastier than other dishes. Portions: okay, not too small but not big.
Dessert 7/10: loukoumades
Price: Overpriced for what it really is.
Service 7/10: Friendly staff. Dishes arrived very spaced in time.
Note: We saw that the desserts came with candles for celebrations, however I mentioned it was a birthday celebration yet dessert came plain with no candles.
Thank you for your feedback! We are grateful for sharing the comments that would have advanced your experience with us.
Service was a little bit slow but overall great experience for my bday celebration
Thank you for your review!
We like the food. But the chairs are not the most comfortable for dinning. It’s too loud to have a conversation.
This is a great place to go for a fancy night out. The waiter suggested sharing plates, but the size of each plate was so small that our shared portions were sample sized. This is a great choice for the right occasion.
Thank you Grace for your kind review and feedback.

Byblos is one of my favorite restaurants in South Beach. The food is always excellent. The service is amazing - warm and friendly, yet professional. We had the Spanish octopus, the beets, duck kibbeh, Whole branzino, and green beans along with the truffle pide. Everything was delicious! I can't wait to go again!
Thank you for the feedback! We are glad you enjoyed your experience and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Probably one of the worst dining experiences I’ve had in a long time. They sat us at a lovely table outside that almost fell over so my husband has to use his napkin to stable the table. It then took them over 20 minutes to get him a new one. Followed by the server giving us the wrong water three times, I never received my cocktail. To my husband stating that he was gluten free due to allergies and them sending us out non gluten free dishes. Our waiter forgot our drinks and food, sitting more then 45 minutes btw dishes. Our dinner for two took four hours from when we were seated. They waiter kept blaming it on the weekend but parties came and left before us. And the food wasn’t that great to begin with. Finally when we got our main the steak was so rare you could barely eat it. I would not remember there are other places in the area that do just as good and you’ll get better service.
Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your recent experience at Byblos. 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 and mention this review.

Great food and atmosphere like always, thanks!
Thank you Ryan! We hope to welcome you back soon.
Authentic Mediterranean cuisine. We tried the 4 course tasting menu and everything tastes great. Excellent service. We will definitely come back. Highly recommended.
Thank you for being our guest at Byblos! It was a pleasure hosting you this weekend, and we hope to see you again soon.
We were there for a bday celebration and the service was slow and our server did not provide good service

Returned for Miami Spice again. For future reference, make sure you ask them for the Spice menu since they don’t offer it to you on their own. Nice menu with a lot of choices - 2 appetizers, a small entree and a side, and dessert - all of our selections were excellent and we covered most of the choices. Was quiet initially but by 8-8:30 the restaurant was full with people and music. Good service except we never got cappuccino that was ordered twice. Put it on your list for next year!
Service was phenomenal. Food was pretty good
Byblos has become one of my favorites especially for visitors from out of town! The ambiance is so cute with lights outside and a Mediterranean vibe. The Miami Spice menu options were excellent!! The Nightingale Sour was the perfect night out drink too.
The restaurant is nice. The staff is nice. It's pricey for what it is. There are much better restaurants for the price. Every bottle of wine we tried is available at Publix for a fraction of the price. If you're going to charge upscale prices serve upscale food and wine.
Food wasn’t tasty and meat was dry. Strawberry dessert was good

Need more lighting it was way too dark
18 years in Miami Beach never been till someone who’s been here a year told me to go.
I did on Monday. Located inside the Shorecrest Hotel, hidden on Collins Ave as you enter you feel like you time warped to another country. Outside seating area, very inviting. Only reason I decided to sit inside, our evening showers this time a year. Hostess was very friendly. The inside was even more inviting than the outside. Made you feel like you were at someone’s home. Great energy. I opted to get a table by the window. The candle lights gave an overall romantic ambience to the whole place. The Waiter was great, not sure if the other person was the Maitre d or Manager but he checked on us a couple of times. Every dish we tried was delish. Perfect place for a date, or romantic outing for couples. Btw it never rained. Many patrons dined outside as we were leaving.
I would definitely visit again. Thank you Byblos.
Thank you Jennifer. We are grateful for your generous comments, and we are pleased that we could provide you with a seamless visit!
SO good. The best hummus + pita we’ve ever had, hands down. Such a unique and diverse menu. Our waiter was amazing, too! Will definitely be back!
Thank you, Courtney! We couldn’t be happier to hear that you enjoyed a blissful evening at Byblos.
As a Lebanese I was actually expecting Lebanese food, albeit Hummus and Libney was good coupled with fresh pita bread.
Thank you Jacob for your review & feedback.
Service always amazing. Appetizers and entrees outstanding.
Thank you for your kind review and feedback!
Nice méditerranéen food at à Nice place in Miami beach.
Thank you Alexandra! We hope to welcome you back soon.
Delicious food and great venue. Great for sharing, but they are odd about it NOT being tapas style.
Great variety. Fun atmosphere. Comfy seats, upbeat music.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your visit. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
Absolutely fabulous!! Loved the lamb especially!! Special!!
Thank you for the feedback, Zack! We are glad you enjoyed your experience.
Byblos is one of my favorite restaurants in Miami. I highly recommend it.
Thank you Danny, we are glad you enjoyed your experience and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Amazing!! I can’t wait to come back to Miami and eat here again. An amazing experience and everyone was so nice. The drinks were incredible and the food unbelievable. So happy we got to celebrate my husband’s birthday at Byblos
We truly value your feedback and thank you for taking the time to write a review on your visit!
We came to Byblos over our honeymoon in Miami and had the worst experience. Our reservation was at 8 PM and at 920 we still had not received any food. We tried multiple times to flag down our waiter, but each time we were ignored. When we asked what the wait was, we were told our order was never put in. We ultimately just got up and left and left cash on the table. No one noticed, which was reminiscent of the experience here. We were ignored. Do not go to this restaurant. There are so many better places in Miami.
It is disconcerting that our service levels in certain areas were not up to your standards as we pride ourselves on authentic and personalized service. Please email us so we may contact you directly.
Great miami spice menu
We appreciate this great review!
Went for spice, the portions of food offered on the spice menu were more than at most starting with the fact that you get two pick 2 appetizers , not just one and the meals are definitely shareable. The place is beautifully decorated, the drinks were delicious and the ambiance was perfect for date night. Our table was slightly wobbly but we didn’t notice anyone else with this issue so I’m sure it wasn’t the norm. The music was a tad but loud for my taste but we were seated right in front of the bar, the other dining rooms are farther from the DJ this quieter. Bathrooms were clean, neat and well stocked. Parking lot right next to the restaurant made parking a breeze
Thank you, Nicole! We are grateful for your generous comments and we look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Everything was perfect. We took advantage of the Miami Spice menu; plenty of great food and choices perfectly prepared. Great service and a beautiful space makes an evening at Byblos a perfect place to dine.
Thank you Steve, we appreciate this great review!
Appetizers are amazing! Entrees are very good but next time I’ll order just a bunch of the appetizers which are outstanding. The drinks are also excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and gave helpful explanations and suggestions for ordering. We had a great time.
We couldn’t be happier to hear that you enjoyed a blissful evening at Byblos, and we look forward to your return!
This place was wonderful. We were on a quick trip to Miami and wanted to meet friends for dinner. Picked this one out of the hat because of the menu. It did not disappoint! Everything was delicious! Really enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend
