New York has never had a Lebanese restaurant like Naya...(The New York Times).

Welcome to NAYA, a modern Lebanese-Mediterranean Mezze and Grill serving traditional Lebanese fare in a contemporary setting. NAYA is a combination of pure tradition mixed with innovation.

Building upon the original techniques and recipes of older generations of Lebanese women, NAYA offers the same respected delicacies from mezze to salads to perfectly char-grilled and seasoned barbecue meats and fish.

Food was tasty and design of the restaurant inviting. However, the service needs improvement. We were only served water at the beginning, no one coming by regularly to refill, they forgot one of the food items we ordered and we had to remind them. We will give them a second chance to improve on this.

My second visit was as good as my first. The food is very good - full of flavor. There is also a lot of it. I appreciate the way they've configured the space so that it is possible to have a conversation even when the restaurant is full.

Service towards end of night became almost non existent. No dessert or coffee was offered. We had to ask. We were last table and they wanted to close. Food was very good though despite the service. Lebanese wine recommendation was good.

This was an amazing find when we were planning our weekend in New York. The prices were good and the food was amazing. The ambience was perfectly romantic which was appropriate since my girlfriend proposed to me the night before! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for good food in an intimate setting.

We used to go or take out Naya once a week for years. Last few times something has been off. Seems like they changed some recipes and this time our chicken was undercooked. It used to be one of our favorite restaurants in NYC so I hope they go back to their old ways.

Have been to Naya few times. Food consistently good and not too expensive.
Nice neighborhood spot. Enjoyable to have ethnic Mideastern food. Recommend trying
it. One negative: entrance very dark so it's easy to walk by and miss. Suggest better
lighting in front of restaurant. Would be more inviting when you walk in.

Great place to go with friends who like to share food. Lots of options for vegetarians. We shared about 6 appetizers among 4 of us. It was enough food to be a meal. Baklava for dessert was superb, not too sweet.
