    The owner is so nice telling us about participating in the community about giving food to people free of charge because they cant’ afford it due to this coronavirus. We are fully impressed and bless his heart!

    My cousin was in town and Leila is one of the only places in Hercules that takes reservations. We made a reservation for 10 and the table was ready when we got there. Before we even sat down I ordered a side salad for my father because he has Alzheimer’s and needs to be kept busy, and they brought that right away. Everyone seemed to be very pleased with their meals but the best part was when the waiter chased us down outside to let us know that we had double tipped… The tip was included and we didn’t notice so he just wanted to bring that to our attention. Not many people would’ve done that. Showed great integrity and it was much appreciated. We really like coming here: the view is beautiful, the restaurant is great and generally it’s not too loud. We will definitely come back

    Had an enjoyable and delicious meal on Valentine's Day. The menu was simplified a bit, but there were still plenty of choices available. Even on this busy night the service was excellent. The green salad was unique and very tasty, with strawberries, blueberries, candied pecans, and goat cheese. Seafood linguine was also a hit. We were glad that they didn't have live music, as the moderate noise level in the room allowed for comfortable conversation.

    Server read back order correctly but somehow entered ticket wrong to cook. Had to send steaks back twice because they were undercooked both times on two orders. Drank sat emtpy for at least an hour before I requested a refill. Will never go there again. Sad that it was recommended and they didnt live up to the standards.

    The place was quaint, the view was lovely, and the food was yummy! Being there for Thanksgiving, we had certain expectations of the menu. It was great, my only disappointment was no veggies with the Thanksgiving meal. But overall, we really enjoyed ourselves, the service was great and we had a nice evening! And for sure we'll be going back, especially on a nice day to enjoy the view on their patio!

    I dined at Leila's for Thanksgiving day with my family. The service was great and our waitress very friendly. But...the turkey was very dry and the potatoes cold. For the $30 per plate, we received a small dry portion of turkey, cold potatoes and dressing. That was it. No bread, salad or vegetable. The portions were child size.

    We love Leila’s. It’s a local gem that offers consistently good food in a more upscale setting overlooking the bay, which makes for some great sunset dinners. I love their chicken Marsala and mussel dishes. They have a unique lamb burger, and their pasta is always al dente. My only complaint is I’d love to see the menu updated to bring more delicious choices for regulars like us. 😉

    I love this place, the people there are friendly and wonderful. Our servers are the best. I really hope they get their payment system together though. We had three couples in our party and they could not accommodate splitting evenly between three credit cards (3). They could only accommodate 2 cards, so one couple had to through cash down. No problem, we had it but they really need to upgrade on their payment system to accommodate larger parties. Otherwise, the place was wonderful, the food was excellent as always and the people treated us like royalty. I will definitely recommend!

    We frequent this place as much as we can! My husband and I really like Leila by the Bay. This time we brought some friends who were not too pleased with Leila on their previous visit and were maybe a little hesitant to return. I think they were able to experience it the way we do this time and they enjoyed their food, drinks and the place in general. We'll be back and I think they will too!

    There was a slight misunderstanding on the order, and the staff quickly and graciously made the correction. It was our joint birthday dinner, and we felt very well treated. The view is lovely, and although it was a windy evening, it was quite pleasant on the enclosed patio.

    This place is a hidden gem. We were there for dinner and it was too cool to sit outside but plan on going back during good weather to enjoy the beautiful patio deck with the water views. The service was a little slow due to a hostess that didn’t show for work but the waitress was very attentive once we got seated. Food was a little slow coming out again likely due to staffing issues but given that this was a ladies night out we had plenty to chat about. Food quality was actually good and good portions. Will definitely be back for brunch!

    We arrived a little before our reservation time and asked to be seated outside. Host said no, there was no open table. After we sat down, we saw two open table outside so we inquired about it and was told they don’t have enough waiter to manage the tables. After sitting down for 20mins, no one has come by to say hi or bring water so we left. The waiter was rude when we left.
