NAYA Mezze & Grill
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.
I have been so many times in this restaurant over the years. The food is so good! Every time that I bring friends they keep coming back. Love this place!!!
The service was horrible. I sat for over 15 mins with no service. I finally was able to flag down the hostess and let her know I was ready to order. After another 10 mins with no wait service, I left. And yes there were a couple of waiters and I saw them going repeatedly to other tables. The food looked delicious on the other tables but service awful. I would not recommend.
Spectacular wait staff and exquisite food!!
This is a great find. Excellent food and service in a lovely setting.
Service and menu very fine especially as we had to do an early dinner
Delicious food, serene atmosphere - our neighborhood favorite!

Excelente comida con Excelente servicio. Muy bueno para cenar en parejas. Para grupos complicado, hay pocas mesas grandes. Buena música de fondo. Repetiré excelente comida con precio espectacular para NYC. Todos los
Meseros atienden todas las mesas lo cual hace que el servicio sea excelente
Great sit down lunch that doesn’t take too long in the middle of a work day
Food is very good and fresh. Waiters rush you, though.
Family dinner, great food
This was a wonderful experience and the food was delicious, we will return
Had a bunch of Meze- cold and Hot. All very good. fattoush - was very good though balsamic a little too tart
Baba ghannouj, kashkaval cheese, labne were all excellent. Shish Taouk superbly tender
The food at Naya is absolutely scrumptious, and extremely authentic. As longtime vegans, we have found a number of healthy and delicious choices.
I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. It’s a small space that I might have walked by if I didn’t find it online, but the inside was beautiful and the food and service were terrific. The cuisine seemed very authentic. I had the grilled shrimp and veggies with rice - outstanding! I would highly recommend Naya.
Very nice meal. Terrific food, gracious service, great menu.
Went to NAYA because it was recommended by a friend of ours who had loved it and had gone two days in a row because they loved it so much. Walked in and already loved the ambiance. Very modern and clean. We then sat down and were greeted by the friendliest waiter, Ali. He was very kind and so was every waiter that walked by. The menu was filled with all my favorite Lebanese food and what we ordered did not disappoint. The food was absolutely delicious! Even the grilled vegetables on the side of my kafta grill entrée had so much flavor. We even stayed a little longer and were the last in the restaurant talking with the kindest staff. By far one of my favorite meals I’ve had recently and the best I had in New York! If you’re looking for a great Lebanese restaurant, I would recommend this place to anyone!
Spicy green sauce is amazing
Food is amazing!!!! Can’t wait to go back
Very good quality Lebanese food.
Very cordial, staff helpful, food was fantastic. I recommend making reservations
Lovely place. Been there 11 years and I am sorry I didn’t know about it before now. Food so yummy and nicest waiter.
went there fir a business lunch, food was excellent as well as the service
Right near my house so I go all the time. Everything is always great and on point! Very chill and consistent.
I have been there a few times. NEVER left there disappointed.
Disappointed in level and attentiveness of the service. Got the impression it was an imposition to wait on our table.
Always welcoming.the food is good The service and environment are what make you anxious to return.
Naya is the perfect Lebanese restaurant. The spicy hummus is outstanding, the pumpkin kibbe divine, the wine list delicious, and the service welcoming!
Naya is our neighborhood favorite. We love the food, the service, the decor, and the atmosphere. We take any friend or relative who visits us to this extraordinary restaurant!
Lovely lunch. Very good service and unique dishes
Excellent food and service. The air conditioner was not working well; the front of the restaurant was very warm.
This is the best authentic Lebanese Restaurant in Manhattan period.We always eat here when in NYC.
Food presentation has changed and not as nice, small bowls of sides were clearly prepared ahead of time and not as fresh
Loved, loved Naya!!!? Everything was fabulous, from the service to the food. I can’t wait to go back... my mouth is still watering 😀
Naya is one of my favorite mediterranean places in NYC. The food is always good and fresh. The mezze in particular are great and can make a full meal, which is convenient for vegetarians.
Wow. What a fantastic event. The resto is very unique. Every table is separated and quite private but not constricted. The menu offers superb selection and variety. Some of the best Syrian food we have had anywhere!
Karim, our server, was outstanding. Super helpful with his recommendations, friendly and super nice.
What a pleasure. And the prices are extremely reasonable.
We will be back!
Good experience! All 4 of us enjoyed our dinner. Henry recognized us and was kind enough to send over an appetizer .
Lovely, warm engaging personality.
2nd time in a week... delicious Lebanese food and great service!!
This was our first time at Naya and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I was the only one to get a full entree. The branzino was moist and delicious. My wife and our friends shared a bunch of small plates and the loved everything.
We will be back.
