It was my boyfriend’s first time at Byblos and he said it’s his fav place in Toronto now. We ordered the lamb ribs, eggplant kibbeh, cauliflower, short rib kebab and stuffed baklava for dessert! All of them were super delicious, which doesn’t happen all the time, and I would highly recommend going here!
Great Meditteranean restaurant. The menu has enough variety to satisfy all tastebuds. Decor and especially the chairs and tables are worn out and tired looking.
The first night back to indoor dining! All employees were wearing masks, very conscientious about social distancing and the tables were well spaced. We felt very comfortable that all safety measures were implemented. The food and service were outstanding as always!!
Super cute ambiance. Went there for my husbands birthday- and the service was great. Food was amazing- lots of different flavours. We will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu!
The food, service and ambience were fantastic! A wonderful restaurant for a special occasion.
The food was delicious. The flavours were well rounded but not overpowering. Enjoyed all we tried.
An excellent experience!
Friendly bartenders, helpful, informed and efficient staff made the night very enjoyable. It is especially nice that complimentary parking was available just around the corner on Adelaide, although that fab benefit wasn't obvious on the website. Once we learned of it, parking worked like a dream. Complimentary coat-check was offered as soon as we arrived with no wait when we left. Great food and good friends to share it with.
Delightful place, near theatres - outstanding food, great ambience!
My wife & I have been twice to Byblos over the past few months, and we’re both delighted each time. The fare is sumptuous! The service proved friendly & welcoming, accommodating and helpful in our queries. Given its location, it’s a hidden gem in the Theatre District!
Delicious food disappointing service! We were there for my boyfriend’s birthday we ordered sujuk pide, roasted lamb shoulder, truffle rice, loukmades and Turkish coffee. Love the pide, lamb and rice it was outstanding! Didn’t like loukmades that’s not the right way cook them didn’t finish them and they didn’t ask if we want sugar in our coffee so they just made the Turkish coffee with sugar couldn’t drink that either. It was very crowded for a Wednesday night but there weren’t enough waiters we waited sooo long to order and for our food as well! I was looking for a waitress to ask something and wasn’t seeing anyone.
Literally the best experience in Toronto. Incredible suggestions on red-wine, creative cocktails, the food is spot on + delicious -> awesome table sharing style of just trusting their skilled wait-staff.
Look forward to my next visit.
Fantastic food and server
Byblos is one of my fav restaurants in the entertainment district. Food is delicious and service is always good. Sometimes the vibe is different depending on when you go since sometimes its very Bay Street and others its very theater.
The reason I gave a slightly lower rating than usual is because the bathrooms were DISGUSTING. It looked like someone went in both the Men's and Woman's bathrooms, had a frat party, and then left. It was bad. We let the hostess know, and so did a few other people but it was never cleaned during our dinner.
Ansolutely wonderful atmosphere, incredibly tasty food and excellent service!
We chose this restaurant for our get together as we had a mix of meat eaters and vegetarians in the group and the menu selection looked like it would accommodate same. We were not disappointed.
I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Really fantastic! Thanks for everything guys, our whole family genuinely enjoyed our time.
Great service and food
Had a great time, the food was delicious but considering that all plate at to share some of the portions are smaller than I would have liked. We had ordered an appetizer and a vegetable side dish that both should have been bigger if they were meant for two people. We also had the lamb for two and that dish was sufficiently portioned and delicious. Overall the food was delicious and the ambience was great, I would just be more careful when ordering next time.
Food was okay, nothing spectacular. The eggplant kibbeh and fried chicken were great. Beets, dumplings were so-so
Everything was perfect! If only I’d known there was an upstairs when I booked - it’s even nicer than the downstairs.
Fantastic in every way.
We had an incredible evening. The ambiance was lovely, our server was spot on and even the cocktails were extraordinary. We all loved the family style and the flavors and presentation of each dish was memorable. Will definitely come again for a special occasion!
Delicious Food and Wine. Assistance from server was great!
Great food and great atmosphere, in a neighborhood full of restaurants. I would certainly recommend this place to others.
Food was sensational and felt we got a lot for what we paid - we asked the waiter to set up a tasting menu for us instead of trying to figure out what to order, it was great and so much easier. Will be back!
AMAZING! The dumplings, lamb shoulder and fried chicken are a must
Great night out. Atmosphere, food and service were all great.
The food quality has decreased here. Portions have gotten smaller and less tasty. Will not come back.
Excellent place. Highly recommended. Exotic flavors that make regular dishes into completely new ones.
Unreal, absolutely UNREAL. The black truffle kibe haunts my dreams.
Excellent service without being over the top.
I've been here before and loved it. That said, this second visit was even better than the first. Our server was spectacular, friendly and talkative (but not overtalkative). The menu is full of high quality ingredients, many of which we had to ask questions about, but all of the individuals who helped us throughout were friendly and had all of the answers. Great ambiance. Stellar house old fashioned.
My girlfriend and my jobs don't give us a lot of time to eat out, but we'll definately be back soon.
Our family enjoyed a fantastic shared meal . The cocktails were great, the food beautifully presented and equally delicious. Our server was friendly and very attentive.
Great place, great cuisine and excellent service. Will definitely return!!
Anniversaire de mariage! Et puis nous sommes encore emballés de cette seconde visite!
Food was amazing, server was super nice, just a little
Expensive but it’s worth it for the experience. Parking might be a problem because they don’t pick up phone calls so you can’t register, I had to pay 10$ for parking.
As always, a great meal at Byblos. Not only is the food great, they are sensitive to the needs of celiac customers, understanding that gluten free means avoid cross contamination. One of my favourite Toronto restaurants
Byblos is great! The atmosphere is guaranteed to be good, any night! The food is delicious and the service is impeccable. Thanks for a great night!
A delicious meal with excellent service! We will definitely be back.
We had an excellent meal with so many complex flavours. Our waitress spaced our food out perfectly and was very helpful. I love this restaurant!
