Food and service was great. Loved the ambience!
Nice setting, service was excellent but food was disappointing. Unfortunately, nothing special.
Excellent range of choices. Everything was good from the daily special to the lunch special. Spicy branzini, lemon branzini, lamb meatballs and all with a middle eastern touch
I really like this restaurant. Some dishes, like the muhammara, are just great. Others are good if not exceptional. But it all feels authentic. Some of the servers are terrific, some not.
Such a cute place and the food was great! I would go back here any day
We love this restaurant very authentic Lebanese food. Excellent Morkia, (mallow leaves) with chicken served with rice and a bowl of vinegar and onion to add with it if you like.Excellent starters,deserts and we loved the Masiah wine.Henry is excellent in recommending wine and food.When we’re in NYC we always book this restaurant.
We had a great time at Naya and I can never get enough. The food is delicious and the service is outstanding. Kareem and his staff are generous, polite, and very good. The food is unparalleled to anything I've had in the city! I love Lebanese and you can't get anything better :)
Second visit and it was better than ever. Will continue to frequent here for their delicious food!!
Excellent food, delightful ambiance and wait staff was amazing. It was a great evening. Authentic food and music. Food was superior.
Home seat from home!
This is a lovely place. The décor is modern but not severe. The service is excellent as is the food with a selection that reflects the varied and enticing Middle-East cuisine. Please g. You will enjoy it.o
We live in the neighborhood and had not been to Naya in a while. I don't know why because it is consistently good! We shared the housemade hummus as an appetizer and had chicken shish kebabs and branzino in an amazing sauce. It is one of the most unique and best-utilized restaurant spaces I've seen in NYC. Long and narrow as are many others, but the built-in booths are very cool and even have designed space underneath for purses, packages etc. It looks like a restaurant you would find downtown, not on a nondescript stretch of Second Ave. The wait staff is very attentive and knowledgeable about the authenticity of the dishes. Highly recommend reservations as they fill up, especially on the weekends.
The guy who answered the phon spoke in a rude way. He said that they are full and can not accept any walk in for 3 people that day. I booked by table immediately through open table and walked in to find it ready. The restaurant is one my favorite though
Excellent genuine service and delicious food - best lentil soup I've ever had!
Love this place & especially the food. It’s my favorite local restaurant.
I've been to Naya many times and it never disappoints. The food is always amazing, the Lebanese rice is to die for and one of the few places that carries Almazza pilsner beer. Great spot for a quiet dinner for two especially if you're trying to impress that special someone
Excellent food served with panache and welcome inattention.
A must try. Truly authentic from someone who grew up w/ this food
Absolutely delicious lunch. Great value. Fresh food beautifully prepared and presented.
We really enjoyed this restaurant. Cool modern decor. Wonderfully engaging staff and the food was terrific. We would definitely go back.
It truly is a neighborhood gem with great service. We look forward to our next visit.
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.
Food was amazing and Henri gave amazing service! Will def go back.
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.
My absolute FAVORITE neighborhood restaurant!
Amazing staff......always courteous, professional!
Fabulous for friend get together!
Wonderful Lebanese food- great service the waiter was open to discuss his culture and love of wine and food Lebanon.
Their Kibbe nayyeh....OMG !!!!!!
Kofta was great as well !
A gem! Excellent recommendations by Henri for both food and wine. The food was delicious. They make you feel like long-time customers.
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.
great place to dine relax and know each time when you come back getting same great quality of food ,wine and service, all those for very affordable price.
do not miss such great place
This is an excellent restaurant with remarkable, Lebanese quinine. The prices are very reasonable with excellent quality.
Love this place! the food is always delicious! and the atmosphere is always special
Very delicious food and good service.our server karim was great.
They have one of the best taouk (marinated chicken)in town.
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.
Nice ambience and great tasting food. Can get small plates and share which is great.
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.
Good food .good service....anyone who likes good Lebanese food.naya is the place..+ good wine selection..
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.
