Lovely outdoor seating area. Food is pretty basic middle eastern fare and prepare well.
Surprisingly good wine selection. Service was not bad but could be more attentive (e.g., had to ask for water refills).

It is always a great and delicious time at Leila's. I love the food and the service. This family enterprise is such a pleasure to watch. Dad & Mom are amazing hosts, all recipes are created by the mother and the children work as waiters. Constantine, their son, delivers amazing service all the time and I enjoy visiting again and again.

Don’t walk. Run here! This is the perfect hidden gem in WPB. Service excellent. Food was amazing. I am a vegetarian and had endless delicious options. My husband loved the lamb. Outdoor dining with tables spaced far apart. I am so happy I finally came here. I will be back often.

Love this restaurant. Brought our 2 (adult) daughters, who live in VA in areas with lots of dining options, and they agreed it was special. Such nice people and wonderful menu. We had a selection of mezze including, among others, tabouleh, baba ghanoush (sp?), falafel, hummus with pine nuts and beef tips. All excellent.

This is my second review for this restaurant. And it still continues to be consistently great food, great service and an excellent value. Instead of going with entrées this time, we tried six or seven different hot plates and cold plates. All were excellent. The ability to Be socially distant while dining out is important, and they have a good set up to support that. The outside area is covered, but the tables are laid out well. Inside they’re currently using alternating tables to create space. All in all a terrific experience

Leila is a great restaurant in the heart of West Palm Beach. Great menu and very warm and genuine home-style service. Mom is the mastermind behind the recipes, Dad is the "cruise director" that welcomes you and ensures you're happy and well taken care of. Their son Constantine is the one you will fall in love with and will continue returning to the restaurant. He is genuine, humble and a fabulous ambassador of their family who will ensure you have a great time. Will definitely return!

Consistently a comfortable ambiance, welcoming staff and owners, and tasty food!
We sat outside (which we often do ) but with the pandemic, it is worth mentioning that the outdoor area is spacious and convenient!

Awesome dinner. For appetizers we had the hummus, a bean salad and baba ghanoush. YUM ! . All three were really terrific. We had the best Shish kabobs ever. One of the specials tonight was the bronzino fish. It was just wonderful. The staff are pleasant attentive and knowledgeable. All in all, a really wonderful dinner.

In financial district. Friendly service, close to Residents Inn West Palm. Food was fresh but Bland. Chicken Kabobs had burned char and dry. Humous was tasty. The place was fine but not incredible. Ate outside which was nice.
