Great place for small group allowing you to share several plates of amazing food. Save some space for dessert. It’s excellent
Amazing food as always! Staff are amazing! Definitely a great date place!
Been here a number of times now and never been disappointed. Consistently good, imaginative and tasty menu items and excellent service.
I dined at this location in Toronto, as I dined at the location in Miami, South Beach. The South Beach location has a more aesthetically pleasing atmosphere, better tasting food, and better food portions. Considering the dishes are designed to be shared (family style) the sizes in Toronto are small and the presentation is quite lacklustre and dull. The four rice dishes we ordered came in plastic bowls that looked like they were from IKEA. In comparison, all mains and rice dishes that we ordered in South Beach, came on cast-iron platters. Overall, our expectations and experience in Toronto were not met based on the experience we had in South Beach. If Byblos is seeking consistency amongst their locations, they definitely have all the boxes ticked in their South Beach location and they should take a page out of their operations there.
Great food and staff.
Absolutely amazing eating experience. Would highly recommend to anyone just visiting Toronto to go here!
Food was out of this world!!!! Amazing!
It was ok, nothing really special
The food was good, atmosphere was good but its a little pricey.
on the downside, the host mixed up my reservations even after i called an hour before to confirm it. My boss almost had to go to mcdonald's for his dinner meeting. Please take instructions properly.
Definitely order the lamb chops for appetizer and braised lamb shoulder for your main.
Enjoyed the flavours! Ordered 3 dishes and a drink and I was pleasantly surprised each time!
I have been to Byblos 3 times for a variety of evenings-friend’s birthday, girl’s night, and romantic dinner. All were great and visually stunning food, great service, excellent wine suggestions from countries we would not have normally gravitated to. This particular time we had a server named Nancy who served my celiac and multiple food allergy needs very efficiently. She knew the ingredients in all the dishes and quickly formulated what to leave out of each so I had beautiful selections and variety. I travel the world for business and leisure so eat in restaurants all the time, her knowledge and quick thinking made this the best experience for my dietary needs and my companions. The branzino was fantastic
Food, serviced, ambience are all top notch. Highly recommended. The sharing of food concept adds to the fun part.
We attended for my spouse's birthday. The restaurant was recommended by our son. The share plates were fantastic and the service was very good.
We will certainly be back.
Thank you for a great and memorable evening.
Lamb ribs were so savory, as were dumplings. Flatbread pide was very good. Server was perfect in every way. Worth the price!
Great food as always!!
Every dish was better than the last
Very good food and service
THE HIGHLIGHTS: The lamb ribs melted off the bone into your mouth. Never had better!
Ordered Persian Kale rice dish and waitress recommended pairing it with dumplings. Both were marvelous.
Fun mixing a number of small plates.
The food was outstanding and the service was excellent! After waiting a year and dreaming of eating at Byblos again, our dreams finally came true. The food was delicious. There are old favorites to savor, but also new dishes to try. Our mocktails were inventive, unique and oh so good I guess I would call the entire experience sublime. We will return one more time before suffering another year.
The food was breathtaking. The staff went above and beyond to meet the specifications I requested for a very special moment.
Spectacular food & service. Much too noisy at 7:30pm...could hardly hear my guest sitting next to me.
LOVE this restaurant....please try and do something about the noise level....energetic that is true....but too loud for conversations.
Wonderful experience - our server was attentive and personable. It was our second time dining here and would highly recommend it
The food and service was outstanding. This is one of our favourite restaurants in the city. We come here to celebrate special occasions and when we have people in from out of town. We brought our 6 week old newborn with us as we were celebrating a special occasion and the staff were so nice and accommodating. One of the waiters even asked if we wanted a glass of warm water to warm our bottle. Highly recommend this restaurant, the food and service will never disappoint.
Delicious food, so many great flavours
We had such a wonderful experience. Best meal in a long time!
Among the top three restaurants in Toronto among any category. It's that good.
Food was beyond our expectations and the service was amazing. The waitress was very knowledgeable.
the dumpling is amazing i order 2 time
evetithing is great
Amazing!!! Every single dish was heaven, you CANNOT go wrong coming here for a great dinner with friends or family.
Will come back soon!!
Lamb shoulder for 2 — melt in your mouth braised lamb, amazing sauces — a must try!
Delicious food and excellent ambiance! We loved the tea service cocktail served in the turkish teapot, as well as all of the many dishes we had. Our server was excellent at making suggestions and helping us to order, and we loved everything!
10 out of 10. The food was amazing and the service was excellent.
Small portions and expensive! Great wine and tasty!
The food was amazing. The alcoholic drinks were delicious (especially The Geographer). Some of the food took a while to make, so they ended up taking it off our bill, which was really nice. The seats are very close together so on either side of us there were couples sitting on the same side of the table, which made it even squishier. Would definitely recommend it to anyone to go at least once, but it is pricey. For two people we spent over $200.
WOW...ordered 6 dishes for 4 people to share...plus two desserts! Would order it all again except the cauliflower side. The lighting was very dim so was difficult to see the menu. If you are 50+ take your strongest readers! Can't wait to return to Toronto and this restaurant.
Fantastic food and ambience. Highly recommend the lamb shoulder for two and the roasted beet appetizer. Will definitely return.
The dishes are an interpretation of Mediterranean food, vey small and high priced.
The food is nice but not filling or worth the price
We celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary and decided to try Byblos since we had heard great things, and it did not disappoint.
We began our meal with the beet starter (not sure of the name) which was flavourful yet light and refreshing.
When then followed it with the lamb shoulder and truffle rice and it was unbelievable and highly recommend.
Overall ambience and experience was to par from what he had heard and enjoyed our experience.
We would highly recommend it.
I've been many times and have been happy
This time there server assigned to our table was in a bad mood and rude at times. Also, it seems that the portion sizes have gotten a bit smaller than previous times ordering the exact same thing.
Hoping this was just an off day as I've previously had good experiences. Love that the menu changes frequently for some items but some stuff I like I was also sad to see them go.
I brought a very important client for dinner, Erin was the servers name on our bill
First we asked her to recommend a full bodied red wine, the one she recommended was not and we sent it back. She said sorry, I always thought this one was full bodied.......If she wasn’t sure she should not have recommended it. She sent over sommelier who was able to help us.
The attitude from our server, was rude and belligerent. We ordered our starters and wanted to relax and have our wine for a bit, she came to our table 4 times asking us if we were ready to order our mains.....this was in a span of 15-20min. As this was a very important client I did not want to be rushed. On her 4th ask she got very aggressive stating that we pretty much better get our order in as they could be turnover of tables,,,,then she raced to the hostess to find out and basically came back and said your good, you can stay all night if you want....very uncalled for. There was a free table in our area for the entire evening.
I was in absolute shock and awwww of what we going on, not a smile, nothing from this server. Very disrespectful. I tipped her but truly do not feel it was deserved....
We were approached by Terry who was lovely, he helped with our food order and just really changed the experience for us.
This server was awful and you could lose a lot of business because of this. Our bill was $350, I would’ve spoke to a manager but I didn’t want to do this on a evening out with a client.
Delicious food! Friendly and knowledged staff. Comfortable atmosphere & great wine.
