Diner Reviews
  • "We've been to Leila 3 times in the last four months and have not been disappointed. The Leila mixed grill for 2 is very good. We had an excellent very attentive waiter on our last visit. All 4 of us enjoyed our food and total dining experience."

  • "New to west palm. One of the first places we came. Very good selection of middle eastern food. We ordered mostly apps and then got one chicken kebob entree to share. Everything was well prepared. The cold halumi cheese dish was just okay. The chicken, eggplant, and yogurt dishes were excellent. Very nice ambience. Would recommend for a date night."

  • "This was our first time at Leila's in downtown West Palm Beach, and we were not disappointed. The ambiance was comfortable and airy in the garden dining area. The food was great, with the kibbee naye being exceptional--melt in your mouth exceptional. Our server was kind and attentive, and engaged with us in pleasant conversation. I always enjoy that as it helps to give a sense that you are part of a family atmosphere. I would definitely go back!!"

  • "Leila's is a quaint and cozy spot with terrific Mediterranean offerings. Their chicken kabobs are the best I've ever had. The marinated flavors are outstanding. Outdoor dining is also available, but it's often too hot in South Florida to avail oneself of this option. Other foods are good too, but I always gravitate toward the chicken. I highly recommend either lunch or dinner here."

  • "Nice outdoor dining, overpriced wine list. The appetizers were excellent even if they were a bit overpriced. I had the Mahi-Mahi which was done well. My spouse had the Keftah and honestly we have had much better. It had little flavor and was a bit dry. I understand that the restaurant was busy on a Saturday evening, however that doesn't account for no flavor. Our server was nice but didn't explain what the side sauces were for. Overall we've had better middle eastern food at a lower price. However this is still a decent restaurant for West Palm Beach, maybe the kitchen had an off day."

  • "Food was standard Mediterranean at twice the price. Dinner for two without wine was $172 including gratuity. My wife and I are no strangers to expensive meals that are well worth the expense, but at Leila the bill was offensive given the unexceptional nature of the food."

  • "Right off the main drag (Clematis) is a wonderful, authentic mid-eastern hidden gem. Classic dishes, exotic spices, reasonable prices. I've been there with small and large group and service and food always wonderful. Owner friendly and makes sure meal is experience. They have live belly dancing on Fri Sat I believe. Can sit inside or outside which is nice. Strongly recommend. They have fish meat and veggie dishes for all tastes. Must try the Turkish coffee they make in the classic style. Desserts unique and enjoyable"

  • "We had a great meal of shared skewers of beef, pork, chicken and shrimp with vegetables and coucous."

  • "The food was freshly prepared and good quality. Servers are very nice. Four of us shared 3 appetizers followed by individual main plates. We did not have wine, coffee or desert. The "but" is the price. The total bill, including tip, came to $196.00. I probably would not return unless I had a discount deal, which is a shame because I do enjoy the food."

  • "We got there before the crowd so I can't judge the vibe. The food was great -- authentic middle-eastern, very well prepared. Considering it was essentially home cooking I thought the prices a little steep but this is Palm Beach in the height of the season. Would go back again in a heartbeat."

  • "Leila is one of our two favorite restaurants in the Palm Beaches. We enjoy Leila as the place for delicious Middle Eastern cuisine in an elegant but relaxed setting. We often take our out-of-state guests there who appreciate the Mediterranean menu and fine food. We particularly enjoy the gracious welcome we receive each time we visit from the owner and the good service from a very experienced, professional staff. I am stuck on the lamb kefta and couscous, which comes with fresh grilled vegetables with a delicious homemade aoli sauce. You can make a whole meal off an assortment of their mezzas, including our favorite - the baba ghanouj. We love Leila before heading to Palm Beach Dramaworks or for a quiet but elegant evening out."

  • "Our waiter was fabulous! Great, attentive service. He recommended a Lebanese wine that (surprise, surprise!) was totally delicious (and at $44 per bottle, was pretty reasonable for a restaurant wine). The chicken kabob (house specialty) was delicious and very generous (2 large skewers); the bronzino special was perfectly prepared; and the lamb shank special was huge, braised for 6 hours, and tender and tasty. Then, there was the belly dancer, who was lovely. We chose to eat outdoors, since the weather was great, but the inside is nicely decorated, too. The outdoor patio has the advantage of being quiet enough for conversation. A good choice and a lovely evening."

  • "I have been to Leila a few times. The food and service is always top notch. Great first date spot or place to take that special someone. It's never overly crowded. This place is away from other businesses so I think it is often overlooked but such a rarity in West Palm."

  • "Took my wife for Valentine's Day dinner and fell in love with this place. The service was a little slow, but the food was absolutely incredible!! The ambience was perfect for such a night. The outdoor dining area looked beautiful, however we were inside."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Valentine's dinner with my wife... So it had to be special. I put my trust in our waiter's recommendations and Elias did not disappoint. We started with a bottle of Chateau Kefraya- Excellent choice. Elias then set us up with a selection of appetizers to die for. We had the lamb shank for dinner, roasted for six hours, perfectly seasoned with the meat falling of the bone. A knaffe was split for dessert. I highly recommend Leila's for a special night out."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "If you want a break from more formal, and rich, food in Palm Beach, give this place a try. Fresh, generally healthy, Mediterranean food cooked well. The mezze was generally very good, with the exception of the hummus, which we didn't love. The chicken kebabs were delicious. Beware large entrée sizes when you order meze/salads. Recommended."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Leila offers warm service, high quality middle eastern food, and great entertainment. The couscous is great, baba ghanoush fabulous. The lamb shank wonderful, and the Bronzino excellent. The belly dancer was the best yet too!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "We went to Leila for an early dinner before our next event. Had a great time and even had an after dinner hookah. The belly dancer was really cool too (though she had just started when we left. We arrived right when they opened). Definitely recommend. Great vibe."

  • "The outdoor dining was really special. An outstanding Cosmo started off our meal and we enjoyed the Sambusik Appetizer...different and tasty. The wine was good we loved the Leila Grill dinner...plenty of delicious food, enough to bring home for another meal, we all agreed that the assortment of grilled foods included the best chicken we had in a restaurant. The belly dancer was delightful... We've been here several times and we brought a friend with us this time and she was pleased we included her. A unique dining experience."

  • "I've been wanting to try Leila for quite some time. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and I love Mediterranean food. The food was delicious and the service was great! Unfortunately it was kind of dead though. We went during the belly dancing show and only 3 tables were there. I'm not sure why it wasn't more popular - possibly because it is competing with Clematis restaurants. Either way, definitely a place I would recommend."

  • "Nothing special noted, except annoying growling music. We got 2 apps, Leila kabob for 2 @ $49.00 + 3 drinks = $100 + tip. If you never had Lebanese food or you like good Lebanese, I recommend you try Leila."
