It hardly seems fair that a place the size of Norwood would have two spectacular restaurants, but it does. While I often eat Italian food when I visit there, this time I decided to try their Middle Eastern food and went to Byblos on Washington Street on a Wednesday evening. The decor is lovely. There were four of us, so... More

We started going to this terrific place when it first opened possibly twenty years ago in a tiny spot in South Norwood. We loved the food there the first time we were there - always the freshest tasting salad (fa-tush), great authentic dishes and equally great lamb chops and skewered lamb or chicken. So here is the thing: unlike so... More

Byblos is an upscale Lebanese restaurant in downtown Norwood. It has a lovely dining room -- and entertainment on the weekends (great belly dancer the Saturday night we were there). We have made two visits with different friends after hearing about it. Both times we had excellent, knowledgeable service and delicious food. Our only minor complaint is that the falafel... More

During the 3 straight nights that we had either dinner or lunch at Byblos we tasted many dishes. Everything was excellent and they have a unique lebanese wine selection . If you are vegetarian it will be the perfect place and of you are not it will also be the perfect place. The desserts and the turkish coffee are fabulous.... More

First visit was very successful. We will be back Ordered the veg Kibbe. It was wonderful. Also great were the veg appetizers, especially labne and foul. Portions were large. The place was spacious and very clean.

Five of us had a fantastic experience the other night. We enjoyed the mezze extravaganza. Bring your appetite and enjoy everything from hummus to dolmas to kabobs. Delicious. Maurice is a delightful host and put up with our shenanigans. Yuri our waiter was attentive and helpful. If you are looking for wonderful Lebanese food, visit this gem.

Really good food with very reasonable portions. We tried Mezze. We were four. It was just delicious. Furthermore, the restaurant manager is of an incredible kindness. A real opportunity to spend a very nice moment in family or with friends !!!!

Really good food with very big portions. We got the sampler platter which was great because it allowed us to try different foods. The platter for 2 was big enough for me, my wife, and my nine year old daughter.

This restaurant is one I have visited probably more than 50 times! I live in Norwood, and it is the finest restaurant in town. You will have memories of the food and atmosphere that will make you anxious to return as soon as possible to savor it again!

Having attended a dinner party that was catered by Byblos, we were happy to go to a graduation party at their restaurant. We had enjoyed the food at the dinner party, so we were looking forward to trying more entrees at the restaurant. We ate family style in the function room, where servers brought platters of traditional Lebanese food. We... More
