    First off, I am not the typical person who reviews but I received an email to review this morning after an evening Anniversary dinner. My GF thought the food was nothing special and she could make anything on the menu. She maybe be a better cook than most, but she was unimpressed. We brought our own organic red wine and paid a corking fee, which is fine. The corking fee was $35, which I think is high. My opinion $20 to $25 is normal. It is bit excessive, for opening a bottle and giving me two wine glasses. Icing on the cake is we ordered to much food, so we brought most of GF chicken shawarma and eating for lunch. To our surprise, there is a lot of tin foil on the small pieces of chicken. We took off and eat, but WTF? IMHO with all of the restaurant choices in Tampa there is no reason WHY you should come here. Probably better values and food quality in same category, then the VIBE their was flat in every way even with belly dance. Overall, I don’t feel very satisfied with the $165.00 purchase.

    Byblos Mediterranean never fails to impress. Having dined here for the past 20 years, I’ve witnessed its evolution into an even finer establishment. Hats off to the manager, Klime, and his dedicated staff for their attentive service. If you're looking for exceptional Middle Eastern fare in Tampa, this is the place to start and finish your culinary journey. The food is consistently delicious, and the warm, inviting atmosphere makes every visit special. Highly recommended!

    The restaurant was busy for Mother’s Day but it was handled with thought and grace. We were 5 seated as requested and the choices on the lunch menu covered all tastes. We were very pleased with our family celebration ,
