  • 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.
  • Small family owned restaurant. Staff was friendly and courteous and attentive. Come here about 4 times a year and always a good experience. Love the food
  • Perfect couples date! We was immediately seated, no waiting. Our servers was very knowledgeable in our menu. The food was very tasty. Very pleasant experience.
  • My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic meal at Leyla's on Wed evening. It is a charming spot and staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Food was absolutely delicious. We started with the Fried Kibbeh which was perfect with yogurt to dip. We then shared the Lamb Shank which we can fully recommend. Portion was big and the meat was falling off the bone and succulent. The sauce was Leyla's very own and was rich enough to be super tasty without over powering the flavor of the meat. Accompanied by a bottle of their perfect Lebanese house red we would fully recommend spending an evening here. To make a fantastic evening even better, Leyla herself came out to talk with us and share some of her culinary secrets. Well worth a visit!
  • Amazing Restaurant. Like eating in Lebanon. Everything is prepared fresh. Wonderful choices and all delicious! Hard to choose a favorite . Friendly service by owners. Highly recommended !
