My family of 5 were easily and efficiently accommodated here. The food exceeded my rather high bar of what I expect for Mediterranean food. The waitresses were delightful as well. It was a superior dinner we talked about for the remainder of our stay! We look forward to going back!

The waitress was extremely rude and the food portions were small for the large price. I expressed my concerns to the owner and he couldn't care less. We left very disappointed with this restaurant. There are better Middle Eastern restaurants in the city.

Stopped for lunch with my husband. Small, intimate, an closely served. It's a nice change of pace considering all the chains these days. Loved the tabbouleh, baba ghannouj, and falafel!! I don't eat meat but my husband assured me his chicken shawarma was fantastic. It's now a must stop each visit to DC/ Old Town

Try, try, try the babaganoush--it is amazing, not too smoky, smooth and creamy, served with hot, fresh pita. We enjoyed their falafel, fatoush salad and chicken shawarma sandwich wraps also.

Ran across this place looking for dinner after a hectic day touring D.C. This place is small but oh do they do middle eastern food well. Living near one of the largest middle eastern communities we thought we had had good food. This place is like being invited into a Lebanese home with Mom cooking. Everything was fresh and homemade...

The food is good, although the menu is fairly limited. Don't go thinking you'll get many good vegetarian options.

I highly recommend this place for those who want to experience the true middle Eastern Cuisine... I tried dishes that are unique to that region, they all were executed perfectly; kibbe nieh (beef tartar), Arayes (flat bread with meat), and Bahmea (ukra) with lamb shank... Service very good Prices are decent If you are originally from the Middle East and... More

While having dinner at Layla's for the first time was a result of me being out-voted, it was a pleasant surprise. The service was very attentive-I was never left with an empty glass. For appetizers, we tried the baba ganoush and the spinach pies. Both were good, but not spectacular. I had the mixed grill, which came with lamb, chicken... More
