Leila is conveniently located with nice outdoor seating and very comfortable nouveau Mediterranean interior. The buddha sound sets the mood for what would promise to be a nice dining experience. Our experience however did not start off so well although looked promising when we walked in. However when manager/owner (Akram) stepped up the tables were turned. My wife and I... More

As someone who is both a world traveler and a "foodie", the food at Leilas is the best Middle Eastern food in South Florida. For appetizers try their hummus,muhumira and sambusik. The fatoush salad is also very good. Both the chicken and lamb kebabs are some of the best found anywhere and their cous cous is the best I have... More

We really enjoy the interesting flavors of Syrian food, and we were not disappointed. The walnut and pomegranate molasses appetizer is wonderful, the baba ghanouj, with a delicious, smoky taste, was the best I've ever had. Ground lamb kabob was also excellent, and we really enjoyed their special dessert.

My hubby and I went there a few weeks ago for a "later" Valentines' Day dinner. It was a treat! Everyone there was just wonderful. The service was terrific and they were VERY busy! The manager actually was our server and she was fantastic. She kept everything running pretty much on time. But because we had to wait a bit... More

Leila is one of our two favorite restaurants in the Palm Beaches. As a couple who love gourmet food, good wine and travel, we have settled in the past several years on Leila as the place for delicious Middle Eastern cuisine in an elegant but relaxed setting. We often take our out-of-state guests there, including those of Mediterranean descent, who... More

and Great taste. OK I am not talking about coupons, which are out there, I am talking about the amount of food they give you. Half the entrée was almost to much to eat. BUT it tasted so good that you had to eat it. Upscale Greek restaurant with upscale prices. Great service helped make the meal. You'll want to... More

Since Taverna Opa closed I have been looking for a good replacement. This is not it. Service is terrible. Not just long waits, but poorly executed. Hummus is tasty and pita is warm and freshly grilled (but not worth $8) Large Greek Salad was fresh but did not merit $12 price tag. Mostly lettuce with limited veggies, cheese and tomatoes... More

I don't know how they made their aioli, but it was to die for. Grilled veggies were seasoned and cooked wonderfully, chicken kabob was great. Best hummus have ever had. I went yesterday and can't stop thinking about it.
