Do NOT eat here! Food POISONING! – NEVER EAT HERE! Their service is terrible... after a 45 minute wait we finally got our food which was bland and horrible.
Not only that, but after we ate there, all three of us came down with vomiting and/or nausea which we can only attribute to food poisoning as that was the only thing all 3 of us had in common (the beef shwarma!).
Save yourself, and eat somewhere else where they care about kitchen hygiene! Anywhere is better than this place!
Amazing lebanese twist on mediteranean food – Really nice place, good service, very clean, great location, and a really large menu of options. They do a great lebanese twist with their food, and their schwarma meat dishes are amazing. The hummos and pitas great too. Big wine list! Good place for romantic dinners and groups. I would avoid their rendition of spanikopita as it's non-traditional and more of a fluffy puff pastry thing (kinda like a spinach hot pocket), and their mousaka is actually a soup. Because they do these special renditions of traditional items you need to really read the descriptions to know what you're getting
Always a good night for Byblos! – I recommend this restaurant to almost anyone who asks about the good restaurants in this town. I also make sure to mention the live (and don't worry-tasteful-) belly dancing featured on Thursday nights. The atmosphere is wonderful. Warm, dim (but no TOO dim), great music. The service is always great. The best part, however is the FOOD. Oh.My.God. You'll never want to eat dinner anywhere else again! I dream about the chicken schwarma! The desserts are insanely good, too!
Definitely the sort of place that covers a whole range of dining experiences....business luncheons, big group parties, or a small intimate dinner. This place has it all!
Must be a post-K thing – You never go to Byblos expecting great service, but after yesterday I need to speak out. After 1/2 hour of horrible service, we were told by the "head waitress" that they were short-staffed. The lentil soup was great, but when my salad came out tasting horribly, I requested to see the manager. Her response was "he's busy cooking in the kitchen, but I'm also a manager, so you can talk to me." I explained that I wouldn't have minded our server telling us that it would be slower than normal, but being short-staffed is no excuse for rude service. Her response was, "She's a really nice girl, she's just very busy." She comped what we had eaten so far and finished by saying, "Other than bringing her out here and beating the sh*t out her, there's nothing else I can do." Never again.
awesome food! – I agree with the other reviews- best hummus ever!! You must try their lamb, its absolutely amazing..
Best Middle Eastern Food in Town – Byblos has the best hummus in town, along with its chicken and lamb kebobs-it can't be beat! For lunch, their pita sandwiches are healthy, tasty and inexpensive!
Hottest Ladies in the City – Started going to Byblos as a grad student at Tulane.... the best looking waitstaff in the city!!! The food is awesome.... but the wine list and the women are to die for!
After Katrina- this became my regular thursday night station.... love the beautiful women in this place.... on the top of the list... cute brunettes.... little miss annie, julia roberts look alike missy, and petite great butt kate..... i would marry them in a heartbeat......
Go see for yourself... you will not be dissapointed!
