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

Where to start! We stumbled upon this place by accident a couple of saturday evening's ago. We were greeted by the manager, Rodrigo who was amazing. The food was great the entertainment was excellent. I cannot emphasise how great the food was. It's not cheap at all, but it's worth every dime. The humous is the best I've ever had... 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.

Finally found a traditional Lebanese cuisine in Manhattan - Awesome!! Tabouli, dips, lentil soup and lamb/chicken skewers are delicious. Thanks for the complimentary pickles, great service and lunch specials! The owner is beautiful company when she finds out you are Lebanese.

I had not been there, prior to this visit, for perhaps 15 years. I had happy memories of that visit, which we made with my wife's Lebanese cousin, who lived in NY at the time. The restaurant has moved to a more fashionable district and is larger, but it is still homey and the food is authentic Lebanese. They have... More

Byblos provides good authentic Lebanese food. All the standard classics are on the menu. The decor is comfortable, if a little basic. The tables are well spread out with room to talk. Good for larger groups.
