Byblos - Downtown
Super bon restaurant, à un prix raisonnable
Great food and ambience. Waiter was a bit pushy regarding ordering several dishes initially. Price is above but generally worth it.
Server was lifeless to be honest wasn’t impressed with him really.
Excellent food made with incredibly tasty sauces and spices. Service was outstanding. Would definitely go again.
It was superb an all around enjoyable experience. Food was outstanding.
I have been to Byblos several times, but keep coming back because of the unique flavour combinations. The roasted red beets and the manti dumplings are some of my regular orders, and the kebabs are devine. Staff is always friendly and very aware of allergies. The drink menu also has some surprisingly good choices, even if the descriptions sound odd. Well worth a visit!
Celebrating friendship and post holiday dinner
I was a single guest visiting on business and was able to get a single table on a few hours' notice. Being a tapas place, it is always a risk to be a single diner with options being limited. However, the waitstaff did an excellent job of making the portion sizes clear and helped me to select one salad and two appetizers for my meal.
The cocktails that I had (the Businessman and the Byblos Old Fashioned) were very well balanced and very well-conceived.
The Fig Salad along with the hummus and the dumplings were all magnificent. If you are looking for a good representation of Mediterranean cuisine, then you will not be disappointed.
I will be returning the next visit I have to Toronto.
A fantastic restaurant. The food was great. The service was quick and friendly. Price was reasonable.
The food was amazing, and the staff seated us as a couple at a very nice spot in the restaurant. Food and ambience was amazing and romantic. Server remembered my request for the dessert to have a special message, which made our entire date night — she was overwhelmingly happy with tears; thank you BOH and FOH for the unforgettable experience. We will definitely come back for our anniversary. Oh, and the cocktails were EXEMPLARY.
Food was fantastic as well as the service!
Never disappoints! Everything was delicious and the decor and ambiance are excellent!
Great birthday dinner for two generations.
The overall experience was great.
Bring it was our first visit we were not fully aware of the portion sizes so it made it a bit of a challenge to order. But I feel if we return that this wouldn’t be an issue.
Only other comment I have is we thought $26 for a glass of wine seemed a bit steep.
Overall great food and good experience!
Food was delcious. Found the lamb a bit high in salt for my liking.
Food, ambiance and service all very nice. Arrange free parking for you too, not too far from the restaurant which is also super convenient. Can't hide from the fact that its a very pricey restaurant.
After multiple complaints to the management about the hostesses and service level. We showed up this time being told they must have the table back by a certain time. Byblos never fails in delivering great cuisine but always fails in making their guests feel welcomed. Either there’re issues about wanting to sit upstairs or downstairs (even if I am the first customer to show up at the restaurant) the hostess team always make things difficult and complicated but mostly making guests feel unwelcome and comfortable! I am a food writer and travel around the globe and there’s no place on earth makes me feel more unwelcome than in my own hometown by our own people. Jeez fellow Canadian!
Was here for New Year’s Eve and they had a set menu. All was great but recommend Byblos does away with the mushroom rice dish As it was subpar. Everything else was great.
new years eve
Went here for my birthday with my fiance and it was a good experience to get the 4 course set meal for $90 each. The servers were lovely and the ambiance was on the dark intimate side. Will come back.
Our waiter was amazing and very helpful. We had a wonderful experience and most of all it was delicious!!
Super tiny portions for the prices, we ordered lamb and rice dish from the “to share” menu and it was smaller than an appetizer even though the server had said it’s a good dish for 2 people. Good food but portions do not do justice.
Fantastic Meal, great service and ambiance. Seating is all spaced out quite well and the food was amazing.
We really enjoyed our anniversary dinner. It was a bit noisy but just one table. Overall amazing!
The food was amazing and the service spot on. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
Food was very good, but something lacking in the ambience. Service staff not super friendly or seem to like their job.
First time in! The server was fantastic with her explanation and recommendations! Food was delicious! We’ll be back!
What an incredible restaurant and experience. Everything was seasoned to perfection. The quality was outstanding. The service was perfect. Such unique dishes and flavors. Absolutely amazing.
The food was okay but served in tiny portions. We specifically asked the server how many dishes to order for hungry adults, and we were severely underfed when all was said and done. The lamb rack had three ribs. Three. And we were told this would feed two people
A fantastic shared family meal
Excellent food and choices that you’re unlikely to make at home, everything was excellent. Downstairs can be noisy.
Great vibe at this restaurant. Very unique dishes and the mix of spices and herbs really add a touch to plates. Tapa style menu. Definitely recommend.
Everything was amazing.
Quick service. Great food. Great for sharing with a few mates. Not particularly heavy.
Outstanding meal and service. They really went beyond taking care of us and any allergies.
We come to Byblos for special occasions and are never disappointed.. The food is great - Karen is vegan so chef is very accommodating . Great wine selection - great dishes!
Our waitress was super attentive and intuitive to our needs.
Excellent food! Really impressive dishes
First time here for dinner-didn't know what to expect. AMAZING!! I have been telling everyone about our meal. Joel our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and had a great sense of humour too. Definitely not my last visit.
