I have known about this restaurant for years, having driven by it while in downtown West Palm Beach. Never tried it though until I purchased a promo coupon from "Living Social".

This place is great. Everything we have tried here is delicious. My all-time favorite is the hummus bi labneh... the beef tips go really well with the hummus. The beef kabobs have some of the most tender meat I have ever had on a kabob.

We went again and were very happy with everything. The salads were fresh and inventive, mine with felafel-friends with grape leaves. For main courses, the lamb shishkabob was great and shrimp shishkabob was not on a skewer, but very good. Service was very good. Will go back again.

As someone who travels widely and is a "foodie", I have rarely come across a Middle Eastern restaurant as good as Leilas. The service is excellent and the owner is extremely personable.You must try any of the kabobs and hummus, muhumara. and sambusek as appetizers. This is truly a superb dining experience.

We made a reservation for dinner at Leila Restaurant because of a promotional on-line certificate which turned out to be a terrific investment! From the appetizer of hummus with beef tips to the chocolate desert and everything in-between... we were really impressed. You can see by the pictures that the food presentation was appealing and the entrees were as good... More

Very good food, great atmosphere! Just one block off of Clematis. We generally order 5 or 6 appetizers (meze) and a main course. The staff is very friendly and very knowledgeable about the food. Generally can find a table, as the patio out back is quite large.

We were down in Palm Beach for the week. We were unable to get reservations at our favorite place so I searched local places on Open Table. Here I discovered Leila. What a nice meal we had. The food was authentic and well prepared. The service was top notch. We will return.

We recently dined here and were pretty disappointed. To begin, although we had made reservations, we still had to wait for a table. A bit confusing because aside from a couple of large parties, there were only a few other diners in the place and many empty tables both inside and outside. Eventually, with some intervention by the apparent owner,... More
