    Oh my goodness - the FOOD! It was all delicious! Best falafel I’ve ever had and we all loved the yogurt/cucumber salad. The grilled halloumi was a huge hit as was the kibbee (huge portion!). The atmosphere was nothing special, but we felt comfortable. They could do more with lighting to make it very special. The downer of the night was our waiter, who acted as though we were doing him a favor. Oh well, the food made up for it and the other waitstaff seemed more pleasant. Maybe he was just having an off night. We’ll definitely return and try the sidewalk patio which is very inviting (but too cold to eat outside during our visit).

    The food is incredible, the best Lebanese food I've had since my grandmother cooked for me. My favorite is the kibbee nayeh, which is sold as an appetizer. I wish it was available as a meal. There was belly dancing, the dancer, Aurel, was amazing. Will go back just to see her!

    Went on a night with an Arabic singer and belly dancer hence the 5 on the noise. Otherwise it’s fairly quiet. Fantastic authentic Lebanese food like grandma makes. Can’t wait to go back!!!

    The food is always great and the service is too. The wait-staff is attentive and someone is always refilling your water glass when it gets low. This is a family run restaurant and they are always looking to make sure their customers are getting excellent service. The restaurant is comfortable and they still put white table cloths on the tables. I highly recommend Byblos...

Our waiter was pleasant and informative helping us out with things we weren't sure of, and making suggestions of things we might like. Food was AMAZING, and plentiful. I highly recommend Byblos!

    It was very crowded so the wait to get our food was very long. However, the food was absolutely fantastic. I got the grilled shrimp and it was so good. It came with a great salad and fresh hummus and warm pita and the shrimp came with a delicious rice. Highly recommend it They have a live band and a belly dancer on Saturday nights!

    The service was top notch and the food was delicious. There was a table of very rowdy children behind us, but the parents took pity on us and quickly exited when they couldn't be controlled. Not the restaurant's fault. Will definitely return, highly recommend.

    The shrimp kebab was too hard. Rest were very good. Another suggestion is to make the grilled haloumi less salty. It's not good for anyone to eat that much salt. The waitress and manager were supportive and gave a dessert for free as the shrimp dish was not satisfactory. Appreciate that l😊

    Byblos never fails to please. They consistently offer fresh, flavorful Lebanese food in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Maurice (the owner and host) greets us like family coming home. My personal favorites are: baba ghannouj, tabouli, fatoush salad, grape leaves, kibbe layers (ask for the yogurt to top it), and the flavorful baby lamb chops. But you also can't go wrong with the kebabs and cheese balls. Or anything else on the menu!

    Byblos never fails to disappoint. The food is always outstanding and the service was excellent. We ordered the mezza combo for our group, friends who had never been there, and they raved about each item. We have been to Byblos many times, and each time, we say, why don’t we come here more often?

    A favorite for delicious Lebanese food- always fresh! The Loubye lamb is fantastic, as is everything else we’ve ever ordered. We also love the pickles, kibbe pie, house salad, kebabs, vegetarian kibbe & hummus. Take out is great as well! The service is as good as the food!

    The food was so delicious, the service was outstanding and the owner was so kind, very thoughtful and truly cares about his clients experience in his restaurant. From the hummus, to the salads (which were so amazing) to the chicken kabob and kefta kabob dinners, we were blown away how delicious everything was. Well worth the trip from Boston out here for dinner. And for those interested their attention to comfort with Covid goes beyond any other restaurant we have been to in the past 2 years.
