Very good, went without a reservation knowing they were all booked so not sure if we would get in. They went out of there way to keep us posted about the bar area and ended up getting us a table. The waitress was very friendly, helpful with her suggestions and ensuring that our allergies were accounted for. Food was delicious!! Highly recommend the lamb shoulder and dumplings.
I would definitely suggest making reservations for Byblos. They serve Eastern Mediterranean food and it is spectacular (I can see why they are a top restaurant in the city) ! I went to the location downtown for dinner on a Friday evening and luckily got a spot at the bar. It's a two story dimly lit restaurant, that makes you feel like you've walked into another world. It's calm feeling is definitely a contrast to the club district around the area. I'm a huge fan of octopus and highly recommend trying theirs - it was super tasty! I was also a fan of the pistachio ice cream as a dessert.. yummm!
They have the BEST food. There was no wait, only one other group in the restaurant so it was nice and peaceful. They also make fresh, raw juice! They have the cutest little vegan desserts, which by the way, are fantastic. The atmosphere is so homey and coffee shop-ish. I love it. They have bean bags and super cute decor!
Byblos has a lovely look and feel and I would recommend this spot for a date night or a higher class spot with friends. The dumplings are delicious and I would definitely recommend. Their pide was also lovely. I wasnt crazy about the fried couscous it was flavorless in my opinion. Cocktails are delicious but overpriced for the quantity. And the dessert was nice (we ordered the ice cream sandwich one) but it didnt blow me away. Overall the restaurant is one I would recommend for special occasions and I would like to come back again.
One of the best restaurants in the city! The food is amazing, you can taste the love and preparation that goes into it. Unique flavors, but they work so wonderfully together. Definitely a place you need to check out if you're a foodie. Have to try the sweet rice, to die for. Food portions aren't big, the idea is you order a bunch of dishes and share with your party... which I prefer, who doesn't love trying a variety of food! Atmosphere is nice, nothing that really stood out. Would have liked to see some stand out pieces/furnishings but not deal breaking. Service is exceptional, what you expect from a high end establishment. Servers make great recommendations as to what to what dishes work well with each other and how many dishes to order. Ive already been here twice and will definitely return again.
