18 oz. lamb shank slowly oven roasted in a Lebanese wine sauce to falling-off-the-bone perfection
This salad crowns our hot crisp falafel on a bed of romaine, succulent red tomato and radish served with a sesame tahini dressing.
Delicate croquettes of ground chickpeas, onion and aromatic spices hand rolled then lightly fried to perfection.
Delicious food, impeccable service and a variety of items to choose from.
A delightful experience.
Dinner with our daughter and her boyfriend of Lebanese descent. Everything was great as usual. Although some things were “not exactly like his mom would make it”, he found it legitimate and delicious.
Great service, wonderful night for outdoor dining.
We enjoyed a leisurely lunch at Leila in their tented outside dining area, where there was a nice cross breeze, and tables were well-spaced. Our waiter was attentive without hovering. The food was fresh and delicious, but be warned: portions are very large. My small felafel salad would have sufficed for lunch, but I ordered the lamb kufte, which came with pita, baba ghanouj and couscous, another lunch. We were not hurried through our meal. It was a delightful experience, well worth repeating.
Awesome restaurant! We had lamb kebabs, ground lamb on skewers, cauliflower appetizer and fava beans. Everything was excellent! You must get the Knaffe for dessert! Very unusual and delicious! Belly dancer was starting when we left at seven. Lovely outside deck with greenery on 3 sides which is perfect for eating outside in CoVid times. Friendly service too.
Great food! Great ambiance (outdoors patio is really cute). Friendly service! Will definitely go back!
As always - excellent. The patio has a refurbished floor and brand new chairs. For the first time, we ordered the im'saaa hot eggplant appetizer rather than the baba ghanouj cold eggplant appetizer - loved it! Will definitely order it again. Great food! Great service! Great atmosphere on the patio!
Nothing exceptional here. The shrimp on the Land and Sea dinner were well cooked and tasty. The chicken was also very moist and delicious. The let downs were the mahi, which was very dry, and the falafel which was crumbly and bland. I was hoping for more spices. The haloumi was also cold and bland instead of warm and creamy. Won’t be back.
Awesome as usual. Never a disappointment and have been going for years. Brought some friends that have never been and they loved it as well. Great service too!! A definite must try.
Very good food very friendly manager and staff
Delicious food, lovely outdoor setting which was festive with lights. Delightful evening
A great restaurant, very authentic and is run by a family that believes in hospitality.
Have been coming here for years. The chicken kabobs are outstanding. New, large outdoor area for dining.
The people are nice, food good and service prompt. I couldn’t ask for more.
Great Middle Eastern fare served by an attentive family staff in a lively covered patio.
great food and ambiance. we ate outside and loved everything we had.
WE AREIVED AT 6:30 FOR OUR RESERTRVATION. WE LEFT AT 9:45. We e LOVED the food but the service was not as good as the times we've been there before. Lucky for them, a lot of takeout was being done. That being said, the food is absolutely fabulous. We had appetizers Labneh and falafel. Both couples had the Leila's special platter ($49 for 2 people) which had shis-k-bob skewers of each beef, lamb, chicken and shrimp. lthen a dessert assorted platter. Hot tea & coffee. THe meal ran about $100.00 with tip, but it was a special occasion and we really enjoyed the food.
Great place terrific service friendly staff an excellent food
You must experience this restaurant, you will be back again and again.
Sat outside on the patio
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.
Leila has been consistently a delicious place to dine
We were welcomed by staff and owners and had a delightfully dinner
The food and service are great. We always have the Hummus and tabouli for appetizers. The Kebabs are always outstanding.
Its not authentic Lebanese food. Their hummus tastes like its from publix.
Best food I’ve had in a long time! Wonderful service as well. I hardly ever leave reviews but this will be my new go to restaurant.
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.
Alex was great
Best falafel and babaganoush
The lamb ka bob was fantastic!
Enjoyable in every way. Authentic Mediterranean food in a lovely atmosphere. Lots of outdoor seating
A win all around! Excellent food, attentive service and a lovely outdoor patio. We felt totally safe and content.
Food was excellent and so was the service. There was a lady doing belly dance and we really enjoyed the time there.
Leila’s is a simply superb dining experience. Everything about the restaurant is terrific, including the outdoor seating. Please do support this small, independent business.
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
Wonderful food and great service. The lamb shank was delicious.
Delicious food in beautiful outdoor garden setting with social distancing.
The service was excellent. The food was very fresh and authentic. We definitely will be back.
Attentive staff, clean, excellent tasting food and presentation. Returned a few weeks later and had another great dining experience.
As usual food and service is superior !
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!
