This review is for the Byblos Cafe & Grill located at Redford Charter Township, MI. It was Saturday night 8:30 PM, the restaurant was deserted. We were the only persons eating in the restaurant.

In Detroit for the marathon. Walking in midtown and was a little chilly and decided to stop for some coffee and a dessert. Tried Byblos Cafe and the coffee was fresh and good; also tried the baklava. Baklava was just ok have had better. Good service.

I used to love this restaurant. It was my favorite! Then, I ordered a large Fattoush one day and found a dead cockroach in it after eating half of it. I almost threw up. I will never go there again. How unhygenic must a restaurant be for this to happen?

We came in at around 8:20 and just... More

Byblos is located on the edge of the WSU (Wayne State University) campus. We've eaten there several times during the past three years and the food is always *delicious*. Portions are also plentiful and prices are reasonable. The service is very pleasant, too. We particularly like the vegetarian combo, and their baba ganoush is *outstanding*. They also provide a lot... More
