My favorite restaurant in Charleston. I'm Lebanese - and living in Charleston away from my family - so it's really nice to come in and feel like I'm getting a home-cooked meal! The owner is super sweet and makes you feel like family. Highly recommend! :)
Overall the food was good. Not the best pita for a Lebanese restaurant. My vodka was a very short measured pour. Pretty cheap pour for a $15 drink. Had to get a double in order to get the drink you usually get in a restaurant- boom $30. The lentil salad was also a bit odd. Hot lentils over a tasty, well dressed greens. Sort of made the greens soggy. And it cost $25. That’s a lot for a salad. The kabobs were good as was the hummus and lebnah. Overall I don’t think I would return to this restaurant as it is overpriced and pours skimpy drinks.
Absolutely fantastic. Extremely helpful staff and the food was out of this world. We had the mezze, you should too. We will be back, for sure.
Amazing food and amazing service!
Exquisite food with exceptional service. Had the vegetarian plate.
Arguably the best food in Charleston. Amazing. We keep going back.
Phenomenal food and phenomenal service. Staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was amazing. Highly recommend this place and we will be back the next time we're in Charleston.
Delicious food but overpriced. We've dined at Lebanese restaurants all over the nation and the prices here don't make sense. Everyone the Sambosik, Hummus with meat appetizers and the outstanding Fatoush salad. The chicken shawarma and beef kabob were both flavorful and delicious. The desserts were phenomenal. The freshly made Kunefe is the best we've been served. The pistachio ice cream and the baklava with baklava ice cream were excellent. Service was friendly with the owner Leyla checking on our table and visiting with us. An absolute treat. We would definitely return if in the area again.
Amazing food. Would come back here again. The service was great.
Leyla never lets us down. We have been several times and I think it gets better each time we dine. We brought friends with us this time that were "first timers" and they absolutely loved it. It is a very intimate setting with a staff that could give lessons to other wait staff in Charleston on how to treat a customer. We are Leyla lovers!
Such a wonderful meal. Super food and great service.
Delicious food and the staff was excellent. Definitely will visit the next time I am in Charleston.
We had the best dinner here! And we made friends too. It really felt homey with upscale food. Two things we love. The food was super yummy and the service was great fast response and overall really nice people. The owner cane over to personally make sure we knew what was in our food since we asked not to have dairy. It was the best dinner we had during our vacation! Would recommend anyone to go here!
Excellent food and dining experience!
Always a wonderful experience. Delicious food and warm hospitality.
Great first time experience. The service was excellent. The food was fresh and delicious.
This is easily one of my favorite places to eat in the Holy City! The chef's hummus is the best hummus I have ever had (by a wide margin). Every time we eat at Leyla, we have a splendid time. Great food and great service in a great location.
Service was over the top, food was average cost was extreme
Loved the flowers on the table to add color. Waiter great. Food amazing! Price great. Ambiance perfect.
The servers were fantastic, they were super nice and respectful to my table. The food was great as well, and it did not take long to get our food. I 100% recommend.
Very authentic food, great quality. The mezze were well executed, really nothing negative to share.
Amazing food and good owner interaction! Would definitely go again.
First time eating Lebanese & it was everthing & more. Light, not too much..perfect.
Greeted at door by one of the owners and his wife does all the cooking. A lot of things on menu I haven’t tried so our waiter helped up pick out a few new ones. Everything was delicious.
Leyla is all about the family experience. I have been in the USA for 37 years and lived in California all this time, all I can say that the food, the service the hospitality of the team is incredible. this is the best Lebanese food Restaurant I have been to in the USA.
Great job to the staff and the owner. Thank you
Food was great. Service was on point and not too invasive during our meal. We tried the sampler and had a lot to take home for lunch for tomorrow.
A lovely, intimate restaurant with a unique Lebanese / Mediterranean menu. I got the chicken kabobs; in retrospect, I think I would have been more wowed if I got one of their signature dishes like fish or lamb. It's a bit of a pricier dinner - good place for a fancy date night. The service was outstanding.
Best little restaurant in Charleston...!
Always fabulous 👍
Loved the food! And the service was phenomenal.
My wife and I had a great meal The best and most authentic lebanese food we have eaten. The appetizers were very good
My wife had the black eyed peas which she loved I had the frog legs with the lemon garlic sauce. They were delicious
Thanks to the entire staff for a wonderful meal
The food was excellent with great service. Very unexpected. We chose this restaurant because there were tasty vegan options for my daughter. There were plenty of tasty options for all of us. usually not a dessert eater but tried them and they were delicious. Also had the Lebanese coffee that I highly recommend
Food was amazing and service was awesome.
Felt like we were welcomed guests at their home. A memorable dining experience - so great to get out during the COVID19 and enjoy a romantic dinner and outstanding authentic food.
The best Lebanese food on the East Coast,
If you’re in Charleston SC. I strongly suggest you stop by for feel “right at home experience”. The food prepared at this wonderful establishment, is what I call: “a hug from within“
Fantastic Food! Great Service! Very helpful understanding the menu! Everything we had was phenomenal! The dessert was sooooo wonderful, especially the ice cream.
Leyla’s is always a must when we’re in Charleston! Authentic Lebanese food, great drinks, amazing staff and warm atmosphere. My gf needs are always accommodated without saying a peep! The combination platter is heavenly :D!
Great 💎 on king street
It is mine and my wife’s favorite special occasion place for us to eat. So many flavors to experience with the food, and service is always top notch!
The food is absolutely fantastic! They use the finest ingredients from around the world. The owner and staff are friendly, and don't forget the homemade ice cream that is to die for!!
