Byblos - Downtown
Nancy our server was absolutely fantastic. Best ever. Good pacing, wine pouring and recommendations.
The food was fantastic! The colours and the flavours! The staff are great. We had a wonderful time here. Highly recommend!
Everything was really great. The food was delicious and we were treated very well. Will return, and would highly recommend.
Visiting Toronto. Great ambiance and delicious food and cocktails. Excellent service!
Amazing. The food. The service. Everything. It’s never a let down.
No desserts without nuts. Was a little disappointing.
Amazing place and perfect atmosphere
Great vibe, and highly recommended
Great tasting food exceptionally flavored. Excellent selection.
Went there for my husbands birthday. Was a wonderful meal and server was very helpful in knowing food selection. Must go!
Great food, great restaurant. Would recommend forsure.
Awesome experience, great food and service!
This was my second of what I hope to be many more visits. The food was delicious, interesting and very well presented. The staff were all attentive and very menu savvy. When faced with shareable plates of varying sizes and familiarity, it would easy for this to have been an intimidating experience. Instead our server made it a fun exploratory evening filled with absolutely phenomenal food. Everyone should consider the spirit infused cold tea service - what an experience!
Food was amazing!!
Loved it. The servers are a bit hit or miss, you either love them or you're not too sure.
I went for my mother's birthday and was in no rush. We had ordered the first few dishes and the waitress leaned and told my mom we should order the rest soon as "the food takes long". I couldn't help be put off by this as we were in no absolute rush. I mean, if I said we were and needed to catch a show or something, fine - but it put pressure on the rest of the evening (I think she ultimately wanted to churn out more tables for tips).
Other than that - food outstanding. Simply. Amazing.
We booked last minute at last seating with just minutes to get our order in. With that said the quality if the food was perfection and our server was eloquent and not rushed.this was an important meeting to connect a property developer with new investors, we have attempted to have for a while. Having the experience be flawless was a large relief and win. The deal is sealed - thank you.
I love this server, and have had her at my table on another occasion, very attentive, never obtrusive, and lovely personality.
First time and we will definitely come back. Dishes were interesting and oh so yummy!
We loved this spot. Very cool vibe. Our server was amazing. Food was very good. Definitely will come back and would recommend it to anyone.
I have been to Byblos a few times and I love their food. Their servers have always been very nice as well. However, I gave only 3 stars for service because I was quite annoyed at how long I had to wait for both of my drinks. I ordered my first drink immediately and it only came at the same time as the first course (which was not fast by any means) and then as I had drank all of it by the end of the first course I ordered another but it didn’t come until I was basically finished. I left the drink half full. I don’t believe it was my server’s fault for this by any means - the system appears to be that the bar makes the drinks and apparently getting around to literally pouring out a ginger ale takes 20+ minutes. Disappointed in having had to pay for both drinks despite the service. But did not complain as like I said, I don’t believe the server was at fault. Anyway, I’m sure I’ll be back, but perhaps I’ll know to only drink water, as the server was quite diligent with refilling that.
Outstanding food and lively atmosphere. I was quite apprehensive about going as I hadn’t been before and was taking visiting friends out but I needn’t have worried- we were all thrilled and our friends couldn’t stop smiling.
The only minor downside was that our waiter seemed to have too many covers so although he was very friendly and polite, service was a bit haphazard.
However I would highly recommend this restaurant.
The food was tasty and the service excellent. It was a bit pricey though so probably will reserve it for special occasions.
We had a lovely experience for our anniversary. Our server was amazing. The food was delightful and the ambiance perfect. Thank you!
Always great food and now free parking! A great evening before the Theatre- food, service and atmosphere- fabulous!
Excellent food and service (waitress) was wonderful but hostess was not very accommodating at all and it really put a damper on the evening.
You will not regret going here. The Sultan’s Privilege is an excellent cocktail, the home named pita is outstanding, overall great!
Wonderful interesting food. My family enjoyed a celebratory evening together at Byblos
Our server was the best ever encountered. She greeted us warmly, knew the menu upside down, offered great suggestions when asked, asked if we were going to a show and offered to help pay early 20mins before any show just in case. We had lamb, fish, rice, salad.. All were fully authentic Mediterranean spices and flavours. Ambience was great, busy and happy vibe.
Prior to coming to Byblos, I had heard mixed reviews but I found this spot wonderful! I will say that the menu offers variety for those who are vegetarian or meat eaters and works well for a family style meal. The main entrees are not cheap but if you get 2-3 to share along with some other sides, you will be satisfied. My group (4 of us) shared the roasted beets, the cucumber salad, the French fries (the garlic sauce with that was tasty!), the couscous, the short ribs and the chicken wings. We weren't overly stuffed but we didn't have room for dessert. Overall, it was a great experience. Our server was helpful and the ambience was good. Not too loud or too quiet. The restaurant filled up right after we arrived at 5:30PM, so make a reservation or arrive by 6 PM on a weekday.
Requested a table upstairs 1 month prior to reservation but was seated downstairs but situation was resolved quickly.
Originally made a reservation but we didn’t make it in time. They were able to sit us at the bar, which was no problem for us. We had a very good experience for our first time dining here. The bartender was also our server was very pleasant and a joy to have conversations with during dinner.
It was my Dad’s last night in Toronto and it was a magnificent meal!
Room was blasting cold air not comfortable at all we had to put our coats Back on . Food was flavourful as usual but the rack of lamb was medium rare when we asked for medium and it was not as flavourful as in the past .. the crust was falling off and not done properly or placed properly as it was when I came there with a group and ate from the group menu
The most amazing experience. The atmosphere, the service, the food and drinks... all outstanding!
This was such an incredible meal! The food was delicious, inventive, and well portioned for sharing. My drink was a work of art, get "The Geographer". It's a must. Also notable where the eggplant dumplings and of course the Lamb shoulder.
Amazing food and excellent service. Always a great time here
The food and service were excellent, the upstairs seating area was a little ‘dark’ and felt dated to me.
Portions were small, even compared to other fine dinning experiences I’ve had
Tasty food but overpriced in my opinion - main courses say “two share” so we spilt the wagu beef at 55$ and we only got three very small pieces of beef each. And wasn’t spectacular beef at all. The Turkish dumplings were amazing and so was the rice!
The food is amazing but the service was slow. Also the timing of the dishes being brought out was slow. We got two dishes and had to wait another 20 minutes for the others. The dessert was also slow. I love Byblos but they need to get their dishes out quicker for hungry customers.
I think the place had a nice atmosphere. The food was good too. However, the portion size compare to the price is way too small.
The food was amazing. I haven't had such a satisfying meal in a long time. The service was good and our server was helpful with ordering the right amount of food for 7 people. However, we weren't allowed to order appetizers while waiting for people, which was a little annoying. Also the hostesses didn't seem to be well-organized for such a busy restaurant, as there was confusion with our reservation and some people had trouble finding our table.
Other than that, everything was really really good. I would definitely go back, but maybe not with a large group of people. The restaurant also requires the guests to order from a group prix fixe menu in advance, if there are 8 people or more at a table.
Hidden jewel! Great food with excellent service. Worth every $$$ spent. Will be back
