NAYA Mezze & Grill Ratings and Reviews
The food here is consistently excellent. There is a large number of appetizers and interesting combinations of dishes. They are presented well and prepared to maximize taste. Even the plain salad was delicious with pita croutons on top. I can't speak to the desserts on the menu at the restauarant because I am always full at the end of the meal and have no room to taste.
This was my second visit to Naya and it was just as fantastic as the first. The food is absolutely amazing. So much flavor, beautifully presented and just delicious. We ordered the Hummus with ground beef and pine nuts which was so tasty, I'd not had the before, I had grape leaves which are simply the best I've ever had, my parents ordered the lentil soup and raved about it and they both had chicken dishes for their main course. We took nothing home, we ate every bite. Also, they bring a tray of pits chips, olives and a herb dip to the table which I could make a meal of. I have not tired dessert but plan to on my next visit, I can only imagine how delicious that will be too. Do your self a favor and visit them soon. Also, the service staff is very friendly and just attentive enough to make your visit a pleasure.
NAYA really exceeded our expectations. My wife and I read some good reviews on yelp and decided to book a reservation.
As you might see in photos of NAYA, it's a really cool space. Perfect for couples with cleaver booths for two.
The service is very welcoming. The servers helped us select the right food and drinks. In fact the Lebanese brew recommend was exceptional.
For dinner we both had chicken, which was tender and tasty. The rice was also amazing.
Highly recommend to anyone who likes great food, great atmosphere and great service.
Really well-prepared traditional Lebanese fare, with an emphasis on fresh ingredients and balanced flavors. The tabbouleh, falafel and shish tawouk are among the best we've had. Awesome lamb chops. Fun, modern decor with charming tables for two. Great for a casual date-night.
When we arrived we were greeted in a very friendly manner and brought directly over to our table. We were then greeted by our server, Samer. He was more than welcoming, and extremely helpful in finding items on the menu for my friend with celiac's disease. He was very attentive and went above and beyond in making sure we were comfortable and enjoying everything. He helped us in understanding what some of the items on the menu were and all 3 of us ended up with delicious meals! Our trip to NAYA was a great success, and concluded our first night in the city in the best way! We plan on visiting the restaurant each time we're back in town!
This is a good place to bring a date. However some of the guests in my party thought the meat was a little dry. The presentation of the meal was lovely but it was lacking flavor in some aspects and moisture. The meals should have come with some more condiments such as yogurt sauce or something but they did not. Staff were nice.
Easy to walk right by this little spot. But don’t! Walk in - and surprise begins. Contemporary design makes narrow space so inviting. And food is really, really interesting middle eastern. Lunch features assortment of first course dips, followed by sandwich or entree. Huge portions - plenty to share or take home. Seasonings are delicate and delicious. Everything we’ve tried after three visits is delicious. Enjoy this 2nd Ave. gem.
I booked a table for 4 for the lunch through Open Table. The reservation was for 2h30 pm. Once we arrived, the waiter promptly informed us that the food needs to be requested immediately, as the kitchen would close @ 3pm!!!!! If the kitchen closes at 3 pm, then they would not accepted reservations after 2 pm. Absurd! Although the food is very tasteful, the service is really poor.
