    First time to Leilu and it was fantastic. It’s a cute place with nice decor. The food was delicious and the service was great. The portions were big for the price.

    Most of us liked our entree. The special almond encrusted flounder was a bit overcooked and dry. Unusual to find No infused vodkas. Dessert choices were not appealing to any of us so we walked to bakery close by for dessert. An average restaurant but nothing special about dinner would make me return again.

    Everything was delicious except the ribs which I was so looking forward to. Had them before and they were 4 large ribs extremely tender. Last night they were about 6-8 small ribs and tasted dry/over cooked.

    We went on a tuesday evening when there's an amazing Taco Tuesday menu that is incredible both in terms of food and value. We started with a special flatbread that was loaded with chicken, peppers and cheese. For our main courses we had the fish tacos which were delicious, the taco salad which is enough for 3 meals, and the combination tacos. The seasonings were great - spicy which is what we like, and the salsa is delicious. I highly recommend this place. The upstairs is very nice and the ambience is delightful.

    Seven of us ate here on a Friday evening. Nice looking restaurant, with a good vibe, however, the food was not good. For appetizers, we ordered the Bavarian pretzel, which tasted fine but some parts of the pretzel were hard and dry. We also had the calamari which were completely overcooked - although this is an unfortunate experience at many restaurants. We also ordered the edamame and spicy meatballs (devils balls). The edamame were fine, and the spicy meatballs tasted very good, but none of us felt they had any kick. For entrees my son had the Salmon which he described as "ok". I had the special seabass over jasmine rice. I've never had a drier fish, and the jasmine rice was flavorless. My other son had the Leilu chicken, he said the texture was like a hockey puck. The leilu chicken came with a mound of plain arugula on the side, which was not very imaginative or tasty. My daughter enjoyed the ravioli, and her friend liked the baked fusilli bianco. My wife got the veggie burger which she disliked - she said it was too dry and she didn't like the flavor either. I don't know if the dessert is made in-house or brought in. The only one we liked was the carrot cake which was amazing. My son and wife disliked the tres leches cannolis. My daughter ordered churros which she said were wet on the inside, either undercooked or filled with something unpleasant tasting. Finally, we also got coffees which were undrinkable - they tasted burned. Glad we tried the place but our experience didn't match the positive reviews we've seen.

    Went on the recommendation of a friend. We were called prior to the reservation, told that we could not sit upstairs because there was a party, but downstairs seating, in the bar area was available and that it would be a lot quieter than the upstairs. I specifically asked the young woman who called if there was any reason that I would not want to sit downstairs given her caveats about the noise upstairs. She said no. It was incredibly loud in the bar area. If that is your cup of tea, then go for it. The food was good, basically bar food, prepared with flair and creativity. Looked like it would be fun in the summer, eating outdoors.

    We had a great time celebrating Mother's Day at Leilu. The beets salad was delicious . The waitress was so kind. We couldn't decide on mousse or cannabis for dessert. So she brought both. The homemade whipped cream was outstanding with berries.

    The hostesses were so great and the food was amazing. We had the worst waiter I have ever had. Forgot our salad, and messed up 3 out of 4 orders. His only response each time was ‘oh’ never an apology or an offer to make it right. It was bizarre for such a great restaurant

    Flavor of the food was good but the Devil's Balls and Wings were cold when they arrived at the table which was kind of odd as the restaurant wasn't that busy. I'd give it another shot though, the flounder special was excellent and quite large. Service in general was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and cocktail offerings.

    First visit since the place was Fado (amazing Portuguese restaurant). Food was very good - Wedge salad different and nicely prepared and the Pork Chop Milanese was tender and nicely seasoned. Friend had the salmon which he said was well prepared but the soba noodles and flavorings were bland, so you may want to try something else. Rice bowls were nice as well. Good wine by the glass selection.

    Leilu is a little gem off the beaten path in Huntington. This is our 'go-to' place for dinner before a show at the Paramount. They have a variety on the menu where everyone will find something wonderful. The salmon over quinoa I had was perfection and the short ribs on the bone melts in your mouth. Both I highly recommend. The restaurant is small and the acoustics can be a little loud when fully seated or trying to talk over the music near the bar, but the understated elegance of the décor is just right. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. We will return again and again.

    Great service. Food was delicious just disappointing that u order the pork chop gluten free and they were all already breaded. But I did get the everything crusted salmon and it was delicious. Everyone loved the dinner they picked also had the flatbread gf and it did not disappoint. The pretzel was also a crowd favorite. Short rib amazing and the marinated steak was cooked perfectly
