    Food was excellent but service was lacking. Had to remind server of a dish and the delivery of food was improper (arm in front of face). Not very friendly. It was a special occasion. Son and girlfriend had eloped in Spain. The hostess was aware. Manager should have come over to congratulate them. We had a $100 of wine and total bill was $470 (including a $14 charge for a piece of cake with congrats). There were only 3 of us. Disappointed from the last time we were there. I'm not sure if I would recommend but the food is outstanding.

    Food was great, as was our waiter. Booked the patio and was told that we would be inside at an aisle table because the tables outside weren’t finished yet. Not acceptable - if you have a reservation then your table should be available for you.

    Service was great. Food delicious, just need a few more options for Vegetarian's and also vegan's. Wine price was high ($70 for $12 bottle). Very noisy that we couldn't hear each other, but to be fair we were loud too. Overall good time as always.

    The food is excellent and unlike what I've had anywhere else. (Only the baklava at the end was a little dry.) The servers were attentive and helpful. It was a little noisy, but that's because it was Saturday night and it's popular.

    We have been trying to get a reservation here for a long time and we finally did! It was quite busy for a Thursday night, and I see why now. Everything about the place was excellent, I have everything good to say about this place! I can't wait to go back on a Friday evening to their lounge and some live music. I hope they have jazz! I have every intention of being a regular here....after I have a discussion with my pocket :)

    While the ambience was lovely, and the food was perfectly adequate, we were less than thrilled with our experience. Our server seemed distracted, taciturn and irritated by our presence and questions. And despite the relatively empty restaurant, it took a long time to get our order in and we had to repeatedly flag her down to refill our wine or give us attention (though we could repeatedly see her chatting at the pass with a coworker while we waited, and waited). She also neglected to inform us until 45 minutes after we were seated that they were out of half the appetizers on the menu (two of which we had intended to order). Given that it was Father's Day, I was surprised they were so understocked. We also found out later they were out of all but one dessert on the menu. Not the end of the world, and we enjoyed what we had. But given the price point of the restaurant, the attention to detail and service just weren't there. Enough so that I'd think twice about going back.

    Our experience was significantly worse than usual. They tried to bring all the food out at once but there wasn't enough room on our small table, so then half the food sat out while we ate the other food, leaving half the food cold and not fresh (including the pita bread). The service felt rushed and one of the lights was flickering so they just turned all the pot lights off and it was very dark.

    I’m a big fan of the downtown location. I don’t think the uptown location is as good. It use to be North 44 and you can see remnants of the old restaurant. Old carpets, walls. The bench seating is very uncomfortable. We asked for another table and say others do the same. Portions are very small and pricey.

    We expected an experience with good service and attention to detail and this was badly lacking. The high quality of the food was great, but the poor rushed sloppy service (several dishes we did NOT order arrived at our table during the meal) all left us feeling unwilling to return though we have been several times before

    Its a beautiful space, good drinks and good service but we were disappointed with almost everything we ordered. Especially the 20 dollar baklava that was just a few pieces of the small most basic dry baklava.

    Uptown is falling apart...cracked windows, ripped carpets, rough stairs, broken door, ripped booth fabrics which are bent out of shape, dirty and dusty walls, and our table was warped...and so much more I could mention. The food was lacklustre and missing the quality you'd expect. Stay away from the 95% fat lamb ribs. Our server was inattentive and disconnected. The Byblos downtown was a better experience but I have no idea how this brand is the same. I won't be coming back to this location again.

    The dinner was good overall, ambient atmosphere, not too loud, nice background music that did not disturb the conversation. Food and drinks were good, but I felt the portions were too small for the price. Overall enjoyed, except the terrible service. Our waiter was kinda brashy. Few times he strolled by the table ignoring our signs for attention or popped up asking questions in the most inconvenient moments. After we finished our meal and he realized we were not ordering more, he started harassing us and openly pushing out. He kept coming and asking questions, then he came to wipe the table while we were sitting there (unacceptable!!!), then he brought the bill without us asking him. It was outrageous. I liked the place and food, but I'm not coming back because of the service.

    V good service. Pleasant ambience. Although the beef Tuna tartare were V good, what I thought was a lamb steak, turned to be minced meat pie. With the added Sumak herb, I found it tasteless.
