I was here with my family because I wanted them to try some Lebanese food, and we all loved it! The food is delicious, the service pretty quick and the price reasonable. We enjoyed the vegetarian grape leaves and the fattoush salad. I would come back for sure!

We were in NYC for a long weekend and wanted some authentic Lebanese food. Byblos was first rate! excellent menu, amazing food, friendly service and in a great location, close to Madison Square Garden. I hope to go back next time we are in town.

Great Lebanese restaurant with amazing food and attentive staff. Seating is comfortable and spacious - rare in Manhattan nowadays! Cheese pie so good that we ordered it twice.

We were blown away by the food at Byblos! This is authentic Lebanese food without attitude and incredibly well priced. We were there on a Saturday evening and wondered why it was not jammed at 7:15 - well those in the know start arriving after 8:00PM for the music and Belly Dancing that begins at 9:00PM. You could easily make... More

I've had dinner there with my friends. The food was delicious, service fast and waiter very attentive. He recommended vegetarian options, helped to pick Lebanese wine and was extremely helpful. Try this place if you are in the area. It's a hidden gem!

We were looking for something before a Knicks game at Madison Sq Garden. The menu seemed fairly reasonable so we gave it a try. We had the hummus and the Lebanese cheese both with fresh bread which was very nice, lots too for two people. For the main course we had the stuffed lamb which was on the specialities part... More

We ordered the Baba Ganoush, Muhamarrah and vegetarian Stuffed grape leaves. after all this we still ended up ordering a main (can't remember what we had) but the food was decent. It's actually one of a rare sit out lebanese restaurants, so if you're in the mood for a proper meal it's a nice place.

The worst meal in my life. 1 waiter rushed off his feet while the owner sat and watched, awful food, no atmosphere, I would rather eat cold cat sick on the road.
