Byblos Restaurant is located in Norwood (MA) center. It serves Middle Eastern food. This was our first visit. My wife and I went with my sisters-in law who have been there on prior occasions. We had reservations for 7:00 P.M. and were promptly seated after our arrival. The restaurant was fairly full which is a good sign. Pita bread, olives... More

The food is excellent, the staff is very friendly, the service is fast but not rushed, and they have a belly dancer two nights a week. If you can't decide what you want, they have combo dishes.

If mediterranean is what you like, this is the place. We started with a sampler of grape leaves, hummus and a bunch of other delights I can't spell that were exceptional. Against my teenage daughter's wishes I had the lamb which was extraordinary. Even she found something on the menu that she liked.

There aren't too many Middle Eastern restaurant left in the area. Byblos was so good. The lamb was cooked to perfection. Everything else was great. The baklava wasn't what I was used to, but it was good. Still the restaurant is wonderful

This is a fantastic restaurant. The food is excellent, and I love that the owner takes such pride in his restaurant. He personally spoke with us and made sure we were happy about our meal and service. He even gave us a free order of baklava because he felt something was not handled perfectly, though we were not really sure... More

The best Kibbe I have ever had though served in the way I had never seen it. It was a pie shaped wedge rather than a ball but the flavor was excellent. The tabouli also was perfectly seasoned. The service was excellent. We would definitely again

We went for a team dinner and shared multiple appetizers so able to report on a number of dishes. The Foul, a warm, garlicky mixture of fava beans, lemon juice, and olive oil was delicious (and very healthy). The vegetarian kibbee was okay, but a little too hard to the tooth for my preference. I much prefer the entree version... More

After reading the reviews, we were excited to try this place. We were in town visiting for a week and decided to get take out. It was okay, not what we expected. The kibbie was shaped like a pie, thick and hard. The falafel was dense with fair flavorings. The moussaka was definitely not what we expected, we are used... More

Food is good with a unique Middle Eastern experience. The interiors can be updated to improve the ambience. Like the belly dancing entertainment.
