Before coming to Byblos the first time, I hadn't had Lebanese food in a restaurant before. The menu was easy to negotiate, the food was delicious and the service great. We have been back several times and never disappointed with anything.

I went to lunch with my friends. I was so excited to go to this place but when I got my lunch it was not cheap but the portion was enough portion. Service was great.

We went for my husbands birthday, we have not been for a while. The service was good. The menu is a little confusing. I ordered the lamb, which was good and he ordered the steak kabob that was very tough. told the waiter and just ignored the comment. We got the pita bread and the hummus wasn't delivered until much... More

Love this place. It is not a sports bar with all of the High Def TVs all around which seems to be the in thing now, but I really enjoyed it. The middle eastern food is ALWAYS good. Great freshly made hummus, great salads. Whether you get the katfta or the kabobs, its is fantastic. I got the Byblos combo... More

The atmosphere is perfect, I would strongly suggest the Mezza. 1) It gives you an assortment that lacks nothing. 2) The staff, seems to read your mind, you don't have to ask for a thing. Once you've placed your order, just leave the rest to them. The food just flows, and you feel like royalty.

I've been here three times recently.Food and service were outstanding each time. Loved the chicken kebab and tasted my friend's lamb which was delicious too. Very tasty humus, salad and pickled turnips and olives accompanied the meal. I wished I lived closer so that I could come more often!

Byblos did a great job of accommodating a large group (15 people) for a last-minute birthday get together on a Sunday evening. The food was great, the staff was attentive and accurate, and they were very helpful with things like splitting up the bill between cards, taking care of late-comers, etc. I am partial to the mezze (kibbe balls with...

are what BYBLOS is all about. We have visited this restaurant many times and it has been consistently good on all occasions. There's a huge menu of Middle Eastern dishes all served beautifully. A sampling of the menu: falafel, hommus, baba ghannouj, vegetarian grape leaves, lamb kabob, beef kabob, vegetarian moussaka, vegetarian kibbee, baklawa- filo dough stuffed with nuts, Lebabese...
