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.

Incredible dinner and appetizers. Alex was gracious as usual getting us a table. Best hummus, grape leaves, kebabs and lamb shank. The belly dancer was very entertaining! Thoroughly enjoyed our evening!

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!

This was our first time visiting West Palm Beach and we lucked out with Leila. The food was delicious, our server took very good care of us and made terrific suggestions. We also loved eating in the outdoor patio. It was a lovely night and the ambiance outdoors was perfect. We would love to go back.

Nice surprise. We were looking for something different and certainly this Arab cuisine surpassed our expectations. The special for the day was the lamb shank, it was delicious! The service is impeccable. Plenty of parking in the area particularly after 8pm.

The host and waiter were both hospitable and helpful. Food was excellent. My lamb kata, was the best I've ever had, although the portion was farther small. My wife enjoyed her lamb shank as well. Wines seemed a little expensive "by the glass", but they were also unusual and tasty. I'm sure we will return soon and try the outdoor dining area.

The restaurant was nicely decorated. The staff was nice. The food was fantastic. Fresh and tasty. We were there early, I can see you would need a reservation on a weekend after 7 it did get busy.
