Whether you choose to dine for lunch or dinner at Byblos, the experience is an exceptional dining adventure where exotic spices and ingredients enhance the delicious flavors of their entrees. Authentically prepared dishes using the finest ingredients include a range of selections from Lebanese chicken wings, Soujouk and Falafel patties seasoned with herbs, to stuffed grape leaves, gyros and assorted kabobs. Lamb chops and curry dishes round out the exciting menu. For dessert, a slice of Baklava ends the meal on a sweet note. For a true taste of Mediterranean atmosphere, belly dancers perform on Friday and Saturday night. - Vickie Ferguson
We ve been going to Byblos for years and absolutely LOVE it!!! The best Lebanese or middle eastern food ANYWHERE! We are foodies and travel all over the country and world and there s no place like Byblos for authentic, fresh, flavorful, and being consistantly the best...I just wish they were in St Petersburg instead of Tampa, we would be there all the time! Super staff that are always friendly and warm.
I've eaten here three times. the first two times were great. The last time I was with a large party and wasn't very hungry so I ordered an appetizer. The waiter demanded, rather rudely, that I had to order a full dinner as it was a requirement. It didn't matter that we have purchased several bottles of wine at the table. So I ordered a dinner that I didn't eat so I could celebrate my friends birthday. He did the same thing to two other girls. One of the girls had their food delivered raw and then they burnt it when she asked them to re-cook it. the waiter never filled our drinks back up and barely gave us any service. Then he added gratuity to the total. I will NEVER go back there again. What kind of restaurant demands that you purchase a full dinner? What ever happened to Tappas and a bottle of wine? The total check is still the same!
UBELIEVABLE! From the atmosphere to the food and staff this restaraunt is awesome. The portions are large enough to satisfy but not so much that you will not be able to get up from the table. This restaraunt is worth the drive from almost everywhere. I discovered it when I worked in Tampa and I still go regularly from Palmetto, even with gas prices as they are.
Have not had the e pleasure of the weekend night entertainment but from what I hear it is fabulous. Make a reservation and get the bed where you can eat and relax comfortably and you will not be dissapointed.
Great food and good entertainment. My wife and I go there for dinner occasionally and always enjoy the meal. I usually just go for kabobs - either shish kabobs, chicken kabobs, or kafta kabobs. My wife enjoys other types of fare and has enjoyed the chicken shwarma, the chicken curry,as well as the hummus, babaganoush, falafel, tabbouli, and the like.
Between the middle eastern music and the belly dancer, it is not a 'quiet' place, but the food is good and the service usually is as well.
Byblos was delicious! I ordered the Byblos Salad and a side dish of the falafel, and they were excellent. This was one of my first encounters with a Greek Restaurant, and now I'm planning to go back again soon. The waiter was very attentive and informative, and made the dining experience very comfortable. The restaurant decor was beautiful and nearby, there were tables surrounded by couches. I think I'll be trying that next! What could be more comfortable? Also, before leaving, the lights dimmed and a belly dancer circled the room to the music. Overall, a great experience!
