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.

Food is outstanding and if you want a Middle Eastern change of pace, this is the place. I wish one thing only, and that is for the ownership to update the interior. It is greatly outdated and if they just spruced it up a bit, I guarantee it would be much busier because, the food is second to none.

Best falafel I have ever had. Delicious eggplant salad. Great hummous. And so on. Everything was beautiful and in great portions: enough to share but not so much that it was wasteful. We shared everything and only ordered the small dishes. Bonus: staff and owner were lovely. We were never rushes but were well-attended to. This place is old school:... More

Byblos has become our new favorite restaurant. We have been there twice already, and the food is to die for. We got the mezza extra for 4 (on both occasions) and man there were so many varieties to try. We also opted to try the raw kibbi, it was so delicious and tender. My son loved the falafel plate and...

I have had several meals at Byblos; as well as take out meals. What impresses me the most is how fresh everything is; well worth the little extra you pay. The owners are always gracious and kind; you never feel rushed; just welcomed.
