Alex and his crew make this an amazing dining experience!

We arrived near 8pm to find the dining room about half filled and hearing that the upstairs wasn't opened, felt immediately slighted. Alex and our server made us aware its was open for weekends and this being a Wednesday, it wasn't opened that evening, but that the atmosphere in the lower dining room would be equally enjoyable.

We had several dishes, including the truffle rice, the lamb ribs and Branzino and all were fantastic! Better than expected given that we initially felt this might just be another Collins avenue restaurant. The warm welcome, the excellent and hospitable service really made this among our favorite Miami dining experiences among a long list of fine dining establishments. All of this topped off by the Baklava Ice Cream sandwiches and a personal tour by Alex of the upstairs dining room and the club in the back room.

Can't wait to go back to enjoy the great food and service.

Special thanks to Alex and the crew!

We wanted to splurge on a nice meal for our first dinner in Miami. Byblos was worth every dime! We decided on the lamb for two. It was the most tender and delicious lamb I have ever had. PLEASE order the lamb. You will love it!
There were so many great choices to choose from too.

All of the waiters and other staff were attentive and gave us great service. Our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. He easily answered all the questions we had about different dishes and pairings. I think his name is Patrice (tall, quiet, dark skin). Anyway, he was awesome! Many thanks.

I would recommend making a reservation. We didn't have one and was told to wait an hour. After putting our name on the list and waiting 5 minutes we were too hungry to wait. When I told the hostess we'd changed our minds, a table became available ;)

Luckily it worked out because this was the best meal I had in Miami!!

Went to dinner with a friend on Saturday night and was extremely impressed with the impeccable service and delicious food. The restaurant was extremely busy, but our waiter still managed to make us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant. We had many things from the menu and not one disappointed. I will definitely be back sooner than later.

This restaurant deserves to be at the very top of the list of Miami restaurants. From ambiance to service to food .. it is all SO top notch. I had heard amazing things about Byblos in Toronto so I wanted to try this spot - and was impressed by every course and by every interaction with the staff. They went above and beyond to make sure that a special evening was special in all ways. It started with a professional and very friendly welcome at the reception desk (I believe the manager on duty's name was Giorgio) ... and the staff made a point of stopping by our table several times to make sure all was going smoothly and that we were enjoying our experience. The type of hospitality and attention to detail that is so often overlooked -- especially in a place like South Beach. Besides all else, the food is seriously delicious and the menu is very interesting. Will go back again and again ... great job!
