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.

We got the Mezzah platter meal for the table. You have to get it for everyone at the table. There were so many courses and dishes that come out. Pace yourself. You're in for a real treat! Expensive but so worth it. The Lebonese wine and beer were also tasty.

Always a treat to experience the warm hospitality and great middle eastern food of Byblos. Try the lentil soup, lamb shish kebab, and don't miss the sweets. The hommus and tahini are delicious!

We tried several dishes here, but hands down the falafel was purely delicious. We recommend it to everyone!

Food is amazingly tasty. Nice wine choices. They were really attentive about filling up water glasses and clearing plates. My only complaint is the drinks were really slow. We were half way through our appetizers before we received our wine which was kind of a disappointment. Our waitress was not always around or waiting on others but the staff made... More

No food at home -- and no desire for shopping. So it's a dinner date with my wife. Where to go? She suggested this place I had never heard of -- Byblos in Norwood Center. I'd walked by the impressive storefront but never gone in -- and surely never eaten there. What a wonderful and pleasant surprise. I started off... More

My family likes to go to Byblos for big family dinners or events. We most recently went in November with approximately 20 people, and they always seem to be able to accommodate us. We do make a reservation ahead of time. They start you off with hummus, tabbouleh and Syrian bread. Some meals come with a salad to start. This... More

This was my first time eating authentic Lebanese food however I have had Greek and middle –eastern meals before so it was not a “foreign menu” to me. Having said that, I do not know what spices may be different or if there were any nuisances in Lebanese cooking so I had to let my sense of taste and smell... More

This is hands down the best. In addition to a complete menu, pay attention to the specials. If Lamb Shank or Sheik el mahshi is on the menu, order it. You won;t regret it (unless you are a vegetarian). Our favorites are kibbee and falafel. They have all of the favorites and a lot more. The host/owner is Maurice and... More
