Description: Specializing in Lebanese cuisine, using the finest and freshest ingredients. Layla's Lebanese Restaurant was first established in December 2006, in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. After 8 wonderful years in business, Layla's relocated to Lake Ridge, VA, where Lebanese cuisine was nearly nonexistent. The same talented chef along with the same warm staff will continue providing the delicious Lebanese cuisine and friendly service guests have grown accustomed to.

My colleagues and I were looking for something different and decided to go here based on tripadvisor reviews and a curiosity about the food. The restaurant was pretty quiet on a weeknight, so we drank a lebanese beer and talked to the owner for awhile, an immigrant with deep roots in the US and Lebanon.

The atmosphere was great as well, with different pictures of Lebanon all over the restaurant.

The food was great. I honestly can't remember what we got, but everything was unique and tasty. I'll definitely go back sometime.

Went to Layla s to get take out. Met the owner who was very engaging. Had a very short wait for the order. The food tasted great and the servings were not skimpy. The owner even through in desert, since it was our first visit. Will definitely return.

Layla's has very good Lebanese food. It is more gourmets and upscale than what you get at the Pita House or some of the other places in town. Everything is super fresh and very good. It's a cute restaurant with cute decor. Nothing fancy, but it feels Moroccan and has a good wait staff. The service has always been excellent and we have been here many times. Great place to take a date or have a drink at the bar. Great location.

So many restaurants to choose from on King Street, but make sure you try this one. We ordered a variety of dishes, all of which were delicious. I am a vegetarian but my husband eats meat. We were both really satisfied by our menu choices. He had meat pies and shawarma. I had the vegetarian appetizer platter as my entree. Great way to sample a little of everything. Also enjoyed the cucumber yogurt salad. Our waitress was very personable and made us feel right at home. Prices very reasonable.

From the time you step into this quaint, warm setting you're transported to a most delightful place. The staff is warm and gracious. The food, (and we've been adventurous trying many different things) is ALWAYS delicious and well prepared.

Although they're on a busy corridor or restaurant row as many call their street name - Layla's definitely holds their own!!!
