Wow, great restaurant!

We went on New Year's Eve with a party of six. The food was amazing, the restaurant is really nice, and the entertainment was great! Service was a bit slow, but overall great restaurant.

From the hummus, to the ful (beans), to the kibbeh, if you want authentic Lebanese dining, then Leila is your place. They also serve al-Maza - Lebanon's authentic and only beer. Appetizers galore - Mezza plates (shared) for the more traditional and family oriented diners. If you love Lebanese cuisine, don't miss Leila.

Here, at least for me, it was all about the food. Simply first rate - could not have been better. I had a couple of minor issues hardly worth mentioning as, perhaps unfairly, I could not help comparing it to Byblo's in Norwood, MA - my very favorite all time middle east restaurant. But, even coming in second to Byblo's... More

Visiting family in FL and they took me to Leila's for Mediterranean cuisine. We had the Mezza Tour for appetizers which allows you to pick your 6 favorites. Then for entrees the kids shared the Leila Grill which was one skewer each of chicken, beef, lamb & shrimp kebabs in a platter filled with perfectly grilled veggies. They gave the... More

I have been going to Leilas for over a few years now at least once per week with coworkers and friends. The food, price and service cannot be beat! Whenever there is a new coworker or visitor in town, I like to take them there as it is always a crowd pleaser. The owner has done a wonderful job keeping... More

It's been over 5 months since we dined at Leila - and that's too long a hiatus! We have never had a bad meal here. The flash fried cauliflower appetizer was unusual and quite tasty. The chicken shish kabob Tawook is seasoned - very gently! Same for the lamb kefta. The cold couscous is tasty and the grilled vegetables were... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant for lunch and were somewhat disappointed. Service was slow and portions were small. We ordered the yogurt and cucumber dip and were given few pieces of pita bread and shared the lamb kabob which was decent. We liked it but for what we paid were not impressed.

The dining experience was wonderful. We had appetizers which were yummy and for an entree the skewers for 2 which included perfectly cooked skewers of lamb, beef, chicken and shrimp serviced with rice and couscous. The vegetables between the skewers were cooked perfectly. One can order wine by the glass or bottle or bring your own for a corking charge... More
