    You may think that Byblos is a Greek restaurant, but it is in fact Lebanese, taking its name from a city in Lebanon that is a popular tourist destination. This place, opened in the Flatiron district in 2012 by Executive Chef Sabeh and his wife Sonia Kachouh is an offshoot of their original restaurant opened in 1990 in Murray Hill, but unfortunately ...

    If you like Lebanese (Middle Eastern) food, this is definitely the place to go! A long-time favorite, relocated after a fire in the old location, this restaurant is lovely and the owner is frequently present to oversee the operation. He takes great pride in his restaurant and offers the very best in quality and quantity. Our group of six enjoyed a variety of items, all of which were outstanding. And on some nights there's entertainment to add to the allure.

    Service was beyond expectation. They were so kind and nice. The entire restaurant sang happy birthday to me. I wish the belly dancer was on time, unfortunately we couldn't wait for her. Over all a great night.

    wanted a fun and different place to take friends who like ethnic food. I love middle eastern too and researched on open table. looked great and booked but was nervous, feeling responsible for the choice if it wasn't good. it wasn't good - it was GREAT! from the minute we walked in until we left 3 (!) hours later. the staff was welcoming, attentive and helpful with the menu. we took his suggestion and did the family style meal which exceeding anything we expected and was abundant and delicious. music was good. belly dancing fun. overall great place for a delicious and different evening.

    My wife and I discovered the joys of Lebanese and Middle Eastern food on visits to London and have been searching for a similar experience in NYC. Byblos is the best so far. Food is tasty, modestly priced and it is a great restaurant to come with a group. Their grill turns out uniformly tasty chicken, lamb and kebabs. Inexpensive Lebanese wines and great fresh mezzes make this a great place to enjoy a fun dinner with friends.

    We were seated promptly upon arrival. Food is top-notch. Service was extremely hospitable. We were greeted by the owner. Appetizers were great, ranging from the spinach pie to hummus, falafel and fava beans. We like the freshness of the seafood and mixed grill. Portions are generous; come hungry! Overall, consistent and a great third visit to the restaurant. The restaurant was spacious, well-lit and inviting.

    Byblos was recommended to me by my friend who is Lebanese who said that Byblos is the best Lebanese restaurant in NYC. I agree. We ordered the hummus with pine nuts, the Lebanese sausage appetizer, the mixed grill entree and the grilled branzino, all of which was delish, especially the branzino. We also ordered a bottle of Lebanese wine which was fantastic. Byblos is best for large groups. They easily accommodated a birthday party for 50 people while we were there + several other groups of 5-8 people. In fact, we were the only table of 2. It's not a particularly beautiful restaurant and it doesn't have much ambiance, but the excellent service, great food and live music make it a fun dining experience. Our entire bill was $150. Not bad
