  • I’ve only had the pleasure of fine Lebanese dining in NYC decades ago and I’d never forgotten it. I’m thrilled to report Leyla exceeded that culinary experience! The lamb on a bed of pistachio rice fell off the bone in savory, succulent deliciousness (and I’m not typically a lamb fan). Paired with a Lebanese red and you’ll be in foodie heaven. Excellent service and a wonderful, upscale (but not pretentious) ambience. Throw on a nice shirt and treat yourself to something most of us could never recreate at home.
  • The owner went above and beyond to give us the most excellent experience. The hummus was sublime, the tabbouli was some of the best I had ever eaten, very fresh veggies and a refreshing herb and olive oil flavor. The pita was thin style and tasty. Also, the Lebanese coffee was a delight with the baklava, which was not too sweet and rich in pistachio. Truly a gourmet experience. The atmosphere of the restaurant was so relaxing and intimate. You really must experience it yourself.
  • This restaurant is what the 5 star rating was made for. Incredible flavors, everything perfectly cooked/prepared, excellent service (but I wouldn't have even cared if it was bad because the food is so amazing). I'm in love. Coming back this week because my family and I were floored by Leyla's. Had a Celiac diner in our party and she was not poisoned by any of the GF items
