Excellent

Food quality, taste and service are exceptional. My best place to take out-of-town guests for the best taste of Mass.

Ughh...we have been to Byblos probably 7 times or so. The first 4 times was at late afternoon or night and everything was great. We were a party of 4 on Wed, June 17 arriving at about 2:15. There was no on street parking, which is unusual, and happened the last time we came here. We enter the place, there... More

For the most part, excellent Lebanese food. The rice, shish kafta, shish taouk and baba ghannoush were disappointing. The kibbe niyye, shish kabob, hommos, tabboule and baked items (sfiha, spinach) were very good. Service was great. The belly dancer and keyboardist were annoying.

There was a strange smell in the restaurant. At first I thought it was the food smell coming from the kitchen but it was either the staff or the carpet. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was okay. Pita bread was cold and would be better if warmed, hummus and tabouli was good but the Kibbee I... More

I've been wanting to try Byblos for a long time. My first definitely won't be my last visit. The food was excellent, very much like what I grew up with. We were a group of 10, so had a little of everything. The tabbouleh was very good, the reviewer who complained that there was too much parsley and not enough... More

The food at Byblos is very good. Middle Eastern fare, well prepared. Good service though the waiter was a bit pushy. Our problem was the entertainment on Saturday night. It's too noisy to conduct a conversation if you'd rather talk than watch the belly dancer. Annoying.

Located on Washington Street in downtown Norwood this Lebanese ethnic restaurant scored highly in ambiance, selection, quality of food, and cleanliness. The outside restaurant appearance does not provide any insight into the wonderful ambiance and cleanliness. Our family of 4 was welcomed at the door and seated promptly. The friendly waitress was quite attentive without hovering over us. We ordered... More

We have been to Byblos many times in the last several years, and the food has always been superb with one minor exception I will get to shortly. The space is large but not crowded. There is no need to keep moving one's chair to accommodate servers or other diners. The tables are nicely set, and, oh the joy of... More
