Food was excellent. Service was
spectacular. Very child friendly. Can't wait to go back with my Lebanese friend."

We had the baba ganoush and
spinach pies for appetizers. Both were decent, but not spectacular. We then tried the chicken, lamb and kafta kabobs. The chicken was surprisingly very good, and the lamb was good as well. I was not a fan of the kafta. The rice was actually the highlight of the meal! It's topped with shaved nuts, so if you have a nut allergy, speak up, but make sure you try it! The service was very attentive - I'm a heavy water drinker, and my glass was never empty."

Lebanese food was fresh, including
hummus, all the vegetables, Lamb was sweet. Prices are very reasonable. A real neighborhood gem."

Small, family-run with great
service and terrific food."

Everything we had was excellent...
from the appetizer sampler to the mixed grill. The garlic spread complements the food well and the baklava is amazing. I can't wait to go back!"

Thumbs up for the baked kibbeh and
chicken shawarma platter. The hummus with meat was disappointing. It lacked lemon and tahini. This is our 2nd trip here. We dined here a year ago when we visited Washington DC and as with our first visit we enjoyed a very good meal."

Had lunch on a rainy day. My
waitress was very nice. Enjoyed the food. Nothing out of the ordinary but it was a convenient, hospitable place."

As an Arab from the Levant, I
recommend this place HIGHLY. I'd say it would be competitive with even the best Lebanese restaurants in the Middle East, and by far exceeds any Lebanese restaurant I've eaten at in the DC metro area - including Lebanese Taverna. The kibbe niyyeh, fattoush and falafel were delectable. I'd go back just to feast on these three plates. The service was excellent, the music was perfect (classic Lebanese hits) and the place definitely has a family vibe to it, which only adds to its Lebanese authenticity. Home-cooked meals are the most coveted ones and going to Layla's felt just like going home. I can't wait to take my American friends to eat at Layla's - it's the next best thing to making the trip overseas."

I enjoy dining at Layla's
everytime I am in Alexandria. It has a very romantic atmosphere and of course Great Food. It is family owned restaurant with great service. Layla's was my first experience in Lebanese Cuisine. I was told about this restaurant by a friend. I was looking for a Good Lebanese Restaurant to take my girlfriend , who is from Richmond and is of Lebanese Decent. She knows her stuff when it comes to Lebanese Food. My girlfriend thinks Layla's is the BEST. We had our first kiss here a year and a half ago. We love Layla's."

Average Lebanese food. Quite
setting. Good for conversation which is what I was looking for on this occasion. Good service. Fairly priced wine selection. Food was traditional and like home cooking. Establishment apppears to have been there a long time - looks like it. Could stand a refresh in decor."

I had eaten at this restaurant 4-5
tunes prior to my final visit. On a Friday night the place used to be a little more full than it was this visit; that should have been a sign. The food itself was tasty enought, however the portion sizes were dramatically smaller. The falafel came out in the hardest, tiniest little puck shape. (Puck may even be too large a description.). The halloumi cheese was served as three tiny slivers with practically no tomatoes and cucumbers on the side. The arayes barely had meat inside and we left wondering what we had spent our money. I think it's time for us to find a new Lebanese restaurant to enjoy in Alexandria/ Fairfax. This place used to be so good so we are pretty disappointed."

The food wasn't high quality for
the price paid. So, I was a bit dissapointed."

Although is was my first time
there, our experience at Layla's could have been a repeat occurrence. We are Lebanese and the food was well prepared and delicious. The service was outstanding and the waitress was attentive and friendly. Highly recommend it!"

This restaurant was o.k...good
food but I didn't like the restaurant it self, it was outdated and the service was sloppy. Alexandria has much better restaurants...good for takeout"

Living in Old Town, it's tough to
avoid spots that are crowded by tourists in the summer, so on Layla's my boyfriend and I found a hidden gem. It was quiet and not crowded. The service was excellent. There was an extensive wine list with Lebanese options, we enjoyed a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. He has the shish tawouk (chicken) and I, the shish kabob (ny strip steak). Both were well seasoned, as was the accompanying rice. My steak wash bit overdone from my request for medium, but we'd definitely return."

I continue to frequent this family
run establishment. Always greeted warmly. The food is always fresh and well prepared. They will gladly substitute fries for a salad for no extra charge. Will return again."

I had never had Lebanese before,
but my roommates had been raving about it so we finally made a trip. It was fairly quiet when we got in with only one party there, but we got seated in the back away from them which was nice. Now I'm not versed in the nuances of the cuisine like my friends are, but I must say that I was fairly impressed. Our waitress was really friendly and helpful in helping us choose dishes."

Authentic as you can get. Don't
mess around / waste time. Hit Layla's for some of the best Middle-Eastern food you'll find. This is coming from King Tut himself"
Dined on 6/7/2013
We've been to Layla's several
times and always enjoy the food but the service always seems to be indifferent at best."
Dined on 5/24/2013
Please renovate!! This place has
good food and a great location. But why such pathetic menus, tablecloths and furniture?"
Dined on 5/14/2013
The food was excellent and the
wait staff are very friendly. I arrived for a 6:30 dinner, but as the restaurant filled up, the service became slow and there did not appear to be enough wait staff to handle the crowd. Regardless, the waitress maintained her cool and was courteous, though rushed. It was my second time visiting and I enjoyed both meals. The Hommous is very good. The Mousaka was tasty though the vegetables were a little overcooked for my liking. The Bakalava is superb!"

Delicious Lebanese food. We make a
point of eating here when we come to the area."
