My husband's family is Lebanese, and when we head out to eat, Layla's is on our short list of restaurant choices. My mother-in-law cooks Lebanese meals often as do many of our cousins, and my husband and I have visited Lebanon twice, so I think I'm a fair judge of good Lebanese cuisine. We really love Laylas. The food is always extremely fresh and delicious. My 10 year old loves the lamb kabob, my husband and 13 year old go for the kibbeh and I think the batenjan is excellent. Many times we'll just order a bunch of appetizers and eat family style (as the Lebanese do so well!). The decor is cozy with a large wood bar in the front room and tables in the back. Don't come here looking for a trendy tourist spot - this is a place to come for a great meal in a relaxed, welcoming environment.
We were actually there the night the air conditioning wasn't working (as referenced in another review). We were told about the problem right away, but since it wasn't a particularly hot evening, we stayed, and it didn't bother us. By the way, the servers have always been friendly and responsive to us. We've always had wonderful service at Laylas.
I've turned many friends on to Laylas and almost all of them have become regulars. I think that says a lot right there!
