“Fabulous Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

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: big space, not at all trendy, and absolutely fabulous. GO!

“mezza extra... hmmmm, make sure you come hungry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

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 now he asks for it all the time.

Price wise, it is a bit high, but where else would you eat over 10 different dishes at around $35 a person?

Toward the end, the owner dropped by and asked us about the food and the service, I thought that was a nice touch. I am certain we will be back as I want to try their home cooked meals.

“The best hommus and falafel!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

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.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

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.

“Wonderful. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

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!
