THIS IS THE WORST PLACE IVE EVER BEEN TO. I had the worst sheehsa (hookah), the worst food and extremely bad experience with the waitress there. The owner or manager almost broke my ID in half when he was checking it! Who cares about your lousy place either accept my ID or ask me before you do anything with it. When we got in the place was so crumbed (too small), so many waitress poorly managed (almost one for each four tables and yet you could hardly get a hold of one), the speakers were too noisy. OK if you have cheap speakers don't push them, staff were rude. the food was garbage (the kind of food I wont even give to my dog) and their sheesha tasted just like charcoal.

I don't know how can some people post good reviews about such a place. coz even if you go to McDonald's in their busiest days the waitress will smile at you and serve you good food (much much batter then the garbage they serve in here and call food), there will also be much more space and you will leave out happy for only 10% of what would you pay here. This place have ruined our night, we paid our bill and went somewhere else in less then 30 minutes.

Bottom line, just go somewhere else, mark all those people who gave positive feedbacks about this place and make sure not to believe or even read their other reviews.

Do not go here!!! There are so many other much better Hookah bars in the city now. I saw a giant Cockroach on the wall and when I told the waitress she was so rude. My drink tasted like crap and our hookah tasted like charcoal. Plus the owner ignores you, doesn't matter how often you patronize. The crowd is ugly Eurotrash. THIS PLACE SUCKS.

I wanted to go to a place with good middle-eastern food and hookah for my birthday. After reading the mixed reviews on here, I was a little nervous about taking a chance on Byblos. But I am here to tell you we were very pleasantly surprised. Six of us went out and none of us had been there before. Most of the people in our party had never had middle-eastern food before and no one except my husband and I had done hookah before. So I really didn't know if they would like the place or not. But everyone loved it! Everyone loved their meals and everyone tried the hookah and loved it. The music and ambiance were fantastic. It definitely has a very unique vibe. You have the middle-eastern cuisine, combined with a chic, urban atmosphere and great music, all while still maintaing a feeling of some intimacy with your party. We will definitely be going back. Don't be scared off by the bad reviews. I almost was and I'm glad I took a chance on it.

We walked into Byblos with some out of town guests and were seated by the waitress. We ordered drinks and appetizers, they came, but 2 min later the waitress told us we had to move our seats immediately. We tried to be accommodating but they tried to squeeze 6 of us into a 4 person booth and crammed 2 chairs in the aisle- which completely blocked the waiters trying to get from one table to the next and hence we had to stand up every few minutes to let them pass. We decided it was too much, asked for the check so that we could move on. The owner then screamed, make them pay for everything (which I think the check for right?) and proceeded to call my girlfriend b*tch and slu t while she paid. Needless to say I am a little confused why the owner reacted so horribly to us when the mistakes were theirs and we tried to make the best of it...besides, it is not like we were taking up a table, there were plenty of empty tables (wonder why!). The owner then started screaming at his waitress who looked very scared. He is abusive and should not be in the business of customer service. Oh, and I hope that he trips, fall on his face, and breaks his nose.

I had a truly amazing night until closing. They served us until literally just before 2 am and then things changed. My 9 dollar drink was literally taken from my hand at 2:03 am after spending several hundred dollars in the bar. The manager was equally unfriendly and wouldn't even let us go to the restroom after 2:00am. Even after complaining to the Philly police they grudgingly let us back in. We were literally made fun of in the bar upon reentry. I have never been treated so poorly in a bar. I would honestly avoid this bar at all costs if you want to have a good night in Philly. My group was truly appalled at the treatment.

I have been to the place several times for lunch and a few times for dinner. The service was always good and personable; the staff was very attentive to our needs.

The food is always totally awesome ?? never failed me once! Their homemade hummus is out of this world!

Very good vine selections and perfect Bloody Mary and Seabreeze. I always recommend this place to all my friends.

I went here for lunch with a girlfriend and there was only one other couple in there! We split the hummus and each got the vegetable soup/greek salad combo. Everything was good (especially the hummus), but not fantastic. Prices were reasonable and service was ok.

The food here was delicious, I wasn't sure what to try, but the knowledgable waitress recommended the perfect dish. All of my guests loved their meals and they had tons of mixed drinks to go with the meals. Great place, check it out!

I've met the owner many times, and he has never been anything but polite. He has offered me drinks in the past while we converse.. how many clubs/bars do that?! The post about the owner being anti-semitic is not only inaccurate, but offensive. Also, whoever said that he's there every night, and considers that a bad thing.. what planet are you from? Isn't the owner being at his establishment to ensure smooth running and happy customers a GOOD thing?! This place has excellant food, service, hookah, and though it gets crowded, that should just tell you what an excellant establishment this is. Oh yea, and the mixed drinks there, are NOT $20 a piece. They are comparably priced, some even lower, to other clubs in the area. I recommend checking Byblos out. Especially for Free hookah on Thursdays at 10pm.

I don't know the owner on any personal level so I can't say if he is anti-Semetic, but I'm from India and I've gone to eat at this place and Cedar's many times. Food is great and staff have been nothing but respectful. Few times I have talked to the owner and his brothers, they have been kind; even offering me a free drink once for recommending a laptop computer. Went here on a date last Saturday night and had another good time. Place gets crowded to be sure, put it is not the type of place that people come to looking for trouble. You can dance, drink, and have a good time. Had a great conversation with a Cambodian kid about his first trip back to his home country. He and his friend offered me puffs on their hookah. Can't say I've been to many places in this city where you would see hospitality like that.

Great Hookah Lounge, delicious middle eastern food, well priced, and the owners are VERY friendly. They are definitely NOT anti- semetic (I'm Jewish). This is the only hookah bar you will find in center city that has great music where people just get up and dance while having dinner. I recommend making reservations for dinner because Byblos is always a busy party.

The food is okey. The crowd there is mostly middle eastern. The place gets very crowded on Thursdays, and the weekend nights. You have to wait for a table on any of those nights. Some people there just come and smoke hookah for hours and drink water, so you may end up standing with your drink. People smoke cigaretes over your shoulder all around, push, step on your feet and don't care.. There are many other better places to enjoy your night in Philadelphia.

seriously, the most awful wait staff on the planet! NO EXAGERATION! i wish i could give no stars. i have been here a handful of times and due to this 1 unforgivable experience i will NEVER go back, nor recommend this place to anyone. it was my sister's bday but also a congrats party on the purchase of her first home. we wanted to take her out on a night out on the town. too bad it started off with a TERRIBLE note! the table we were given was right next to the dj, it was so loud in there that i couldnt hear the person next to me! the furniture is so big and bulky that it leaves no room for walking. needless to say that the servers were so cranky to have to work in an freakin zoo of a restaurant. we had finished our meals but were waiting on some drinks and the bday cake to come out. during that time a few of us went outside for a smoke break. another server with curly dirty blonde hair, who was not our server, came over to our table and asked my sister if we were leaving becuz they had another group of ppl waiting for their table rsvp. my sister said no and stated that her asking was very rude. the server came back about 5 mins later and started to "apologize" to my sister. her apology looked and sounded more like an initiation to start a fight. it was very shocking to go to a place, where you expect decent service but end up with ppl screaming at you with the intent to kick you out of your table or start a fist fight. to make a long story short: #1... loud & crowded, #2 they double booked a table and tried to kicked us out, #3 server almost started a fist fight with clientele. i felt terrible for my sister!

I visited this place for the first time a couple of weeks back on a recommendation from a co-worker. We were greeted by two large bouncers who poccessed the social skills of a cave man. Then we went inside. There were two odd looking women working the club. They both looked me and my girlfriend in the face and never said a work. So we proceeded past them and tried to seat ourselves. The place was crowded, noisy, and just wierd. There were no space at the bar, no tables available, no one offered to helped us. So we ended up just walking out.

I don't understand the negative reviews on here. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Philly-- I have been there with many friends for celebrations, etc., ordered many of the dishes, even made substitutions, and it has always been excellent, with a wonderful ambiance. I have not been there later at night for the dancing, which seems to be where some people's issues arise, but for the food alone, it is one of the best around!

I went last night and agree with all of the reviews above. I had made reservations but still had to wait 30 minutes. The bouncer was checking IDs for some people and wasn't checking for some...and was very rude when it took someone in my group to an extra minute to locate her id. The prices in this place does not justify the atmosphere, service, music ...the music was good (more trance , clu music) but so loud that i am having hearing problems (just kidding...but you get the point)....i am never going back again to that place.....

I couldn't agree with the previous reviews more. Don't be lured into this seemingly fun place by the loud music and hookahs...my experience at Byblos left me astounded by the unbelievably poor service. My party ordered drinks and appetizers right away but the drinks took so long to get to the table that we had already finished all the appetizers by that time. The food is completely unimpressive and the space was cramped and noisy. The wait staff seemed inexperienced and overwhelmed but in the end I just felt bad for them because they were obviously working for a real tyrant of an owner. We actually witnessed this man argue aggressively and loudly with other patrons - I swear I've never seen anything so unprofessional in 30 years of dining out. I'm not giving my business and money to a man like that, and you shouldn't either.

The food, wine, and atmosphere at Byblos are all unremarkable. What you will find here like no other place, is an owner who doesn't understand customer service and goes out of his way to make his employees and customers lives miserable. Tell all of your friends to walk past this one!

If you want to be treated poorly by a rude, sleazy, chauvanistic owner, then go for it. The guy has no tact and is a total a-hole. i feel bad for the staff, particularly the waitresses.

aside from the pr!ck, the music was blaring to the point that you had to shout, the appetizers were not very good, and place is cramped.

its really nothing special , so spare yourself the grief and avoid this place like the plague.
