“Fabulous dinner at a great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

Had a wonderful dinner at Neyla on Saturday night. An abundance of food and great ambiance. We chose to sit indoors to soak in the atmosphere and shared the Lebanese Sampler plate, along with 2 additional appetizers. Everything was delicious! (even the pita was the best i've had) The waitress was very helpful with great suggestions which were all great! I would definitely go back on our next trip to Georgetown.

“Great Lebanese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

I've eaten here twice with my sister and it has been an enjoyable meal both times. We tend to order multiple appetizers and share them, and most of them are delicious (we both thought the hummus and falafel were a little on the bland side). Service can be a little sporadic when the restaurant is busy, which I attributed to the fact that servers were responsible for both indoor and outdoor tables (which doesn't really make a whole lot of sense to me). They often have live Lebanese music which is always fun too.

“All-around great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

Neyla was authentic in not only the food, but also the atmosphere! I recommend the kabobs, shankleesh, and garlic whip... You can see the chefs cooking on the grill... and the waitstaff was very helpful answering questions about the cuisine.

“Nice little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

We were there for restaurant week and, therefore, we did not see the regular menu, so I cannot really comment on their prices. However, the food we sampled was very delicious. We were all pleasantly surprised with the portions and left feeling quite full. The complimentary pita is amazing. While the atmosphere is nice, they do pack in a lot of tables. Luckily, we were there at a slower time; I would have hated sitting so close to another table. You litterally had to shimmy sideways in order to reach the bench to sit down. All in all, we enjoyed our experience there.
