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!

It was our first time dining at Leila. They had really good reviews so we took the chance. I ordered the Greek Salad and chicken skewer with baba ganoush and it was really delicious. It did not disappoint us at all

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.

The food was sublime. We will become regulars at Leila. It is conveniently located, easy to find, and has parking across the street and along the streets converging at the intersection. The patio was beautiful, and we will try sitting out there the next time we dine at Leila.

Restaurant was not very busy, (12:30pm) but waiter was never around. We were a party of 3.
Seemed the waiter forgot our food for quite some time, as when it arrived it was ICE cold. He never asked if we wanted a drink other than water. Never asked if we wanted dessert /coffee. I also ordered a take out dish, (for a co-worker) that he also forgot for quite some time, and although the bill was paid, I had to remind him there was an order to go...
Food Quality -- good/very good
Service -- poor

We really love this restaurant. Often wonder why it isn't busier. It's quiet enough to hold a conversation, even on nights when most tables are full, plus has pleasant outdoor seating. Service is always good. Food is also. It kind of feels like a neighborhood gem to us -- out of the hubbub of Clematis St.

The food was wonderful and healthy. The presentation of the meals was inviting and added to our anticipation. Superior and friendly device. We look forward to dining there again. We liked that the proprietor stopped by to see that we had an enjoyable meal and our waitress was accommodating and available throughout our time there.

We have dinner here 2 or 3 times during the winter. It serves very good middle eastern food. I had the SRA bass and my wife had the chicken. Both were excellent. It is very consistent and we continue to enjoy.

Dining At Leila was a true Lebanese experience! We literally happened on this gem by luck... sat outside and had the most authentic beef kefta with grilled vegetables.
They make you feel at home right away.
Would go back next time I’m in town!
