About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Shopping, commerce, and history abound in The Reston Town Center, and NEYLA is in the heart of the district around fountain court!

Come in and surround yourself in classy, uplifting and casual environment with an expansive dining room, a bar that has a mixture of rich dark tones of blue tapestry wall coverings and whitewash strie millwork. When the weather is nice you can enjoy our large outdoor patio featuring dark wicker furniture, creating a Mediterranean tavern ambiance.

Acclaimed Chef Erich von Gehren has designed a menu with the flavors and textures from Eastern Mediterranean. NEYLA also offers you a large assortment of small plates (mezze) ideal for tasting and sharing. Also we will enjoy their creative cocktails featuring an Arabesque of Vodka and house made lemonade.

I reluctantly have to say that the food was mediocre. The best dish I had was the beet dip; the baba ganouj was mediocre, and the beef meatballs (kibbeh) were dry and tasteless It could have been a bad day but there are many other Mediterranean/Turkish restaurants whose food I've enjoyed more. And the prices for dishes were relatively high.

My opinion of Neyla has changed. I have been saying for a while that the food is excellent but the service and ambiance were not up to par. But now the service and ambiance have diminished from their already low point. Two if us dined this time at 5pm for a quick pre-theatre dinner. We were the only ones in the restaurant save for 2 people at the bar. The kitchen staff was not busy nor were the servers. Despite that, our tea water was lukewarm and the moussaka, which I had expressly asked to be warmed up rather than being served at their normal room temperature, was served cold, straight from the fridge. Inexcusable. I give up. I really have tried hard to support Neyla but I am done.

The food was great. We shared a bunch of dishes: cauliflower, shwarma spiders, fatoush salad, octopus, lamb and beef flatbread. We had an 8pm reservation. By the time we sat, met our server, ordered drinks, it was 816 and the server told us we had to hurry and order because the kitchen closed at 830. We felt really rushed. It was a week night but there were later reservations offered. What would have happened if we had an 830 reservation?

Delicious food! Fantastic house-made pita with a wonderful assortment of spreads and appetizers! The octopus was cooked to perfection and everything was fresh and full of flavor. Lovely for a group dinner.

Have always had a great meal at Neyla. Love the whipped garlic sauce that comes with the meal. Simply delish! Service is always fast and friendly.
