What more can I say? Every meal every time has been tremendous. We have been there over 25times and the food and service is ALWAYS exceptional. Kibbee is dynamite, eggplant is mouth watering. Hummus and tabhouli are some of the tastiest I've ever had.

I would like to preface this review saying that the food and service in Byblos are good. However, we ordered a bottle of wine that came warm and corked. The place was busy and we were in not mood to complaint. However, next morning 2 people from our party woke up with upset stomachs. Therefore, I decided to write to... More

We recently had dinner out at Byblos Restaurant in Norwood, MA. I had never eaten in this restaurant before or tried Lebanese food. I am happy to say that I was very favorably impressed by both the service and the originality and variety of the ethnic dishes offered on the menu. Our server was very helpful in describing the various... More

My sister told me about this restaurant and since we live in Attleboro, it was only a half hour away. We dined here on Saturday, July 23rd. I was hesitant about entering as it was definitely fine dining. I spoke with the host about what I was wearing, which were kaki shorts and a Polo Shirt. He said not a... More

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

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.
