Similar to our other New Orleans restaurants, Domenica and PIZZA domenica, the wood-fire oven is central to both the menu and the dining experience, from the incredible homemade, wood-fired pita to vegetable-centric small plates and heartier entrees. Many of the dishes on the diverse menu are meant to be shared and enjoyed throughout many courses.

Very accommodating as we had to be out in time for a show. Everything was superb!
Everything was amazing! Lived above and beyond all the hype! Every dish was divine!
The food was delicious. The service was excellent. I recommend.
Shaya was phenomenal! We had pretty high expectations going in, but they were far exceeded. We had several of the small plates and the most delicious pita bread and hummus ever. We ordered the corned beef sandwich and the fattoosh salad as well and loved them all. We got as close to licking the plates as one can in public!
Food did not disappoint. Just divine. The grilled halloumi was a tad overdone but the flavor was not impacted. Service was excellent. Would go back and recommend to anyone looking for a delicious meal!
Fantastic! The food and service was incredible.
Everything was amazing.
The food is always amazing. Server was great but a little busy. He did keep us in pita bread!
One of the best meals I've had in a while. Get the Lamb Ragu hummus. You won't regret it!
Went to New Orleans for business and had heard about this place. It was amazing--everything we heard was true! If you go to NOLA, you NEED to go to Shaya!
A must if visiting New Orleans. The flavors are outstanding!
Phenomenal meal with excellent service!
Absolutely outstanding in every respect! Will go back soon.
Visiting NO LA fun commercial block location, knowledgeable staff and a unique culinary experience! Will be back ë
Celebrated my daughter's birthday at Shaya. They presented her with a personalized birthday card upon our arrival. Our service and food were outstanding. I challenge anyone to find better hummus in New Orleans. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
This food is amazing! Every dish is a flavor explosion.
The food was fabulous and very unique cuisine. Loved the grilled cauliflower with caramelized onions and hummus. The bread on the table is fabulous.
Great food. Great service.
They really went above and beyond and showed true Southern hospitality with a handwritten card for the birthday girl.
Additionally, the bday girl didn’t really like the cocktail she ordered and only sipped it. Realizing this, the waiter took it off the tab. If only New Yorkers could also be like Shaya...
Merci! Ce fut superbe!
Every dish was exceptional!
Unbelievable, one of the best restaurants that I've ever visited. Two thumbs up.
Excellent. Great food. Wonderful flavors. Creative.
We were in Town for surgery and our Doc suggested this. It was the BEST Mediterranean food I’ve ever had. Highly recommend Shaya! Ask for Sam as your server!
Delicious Israeli food and the pita bread, OMG!!!
outstanding ! the service and the food were excellent !
Our meal was absolutely fantastic! The best one we had while visiting New Orleans. Food was fresh & creative and ambiance was great!
Increíble variedad y calidad de comida mediterránea moderna. One of the best in Nola
Delicious. Great stuff. Service was impeccable that hot pita bread is to die for
Food and service were terrific. Would definitely return. Only complaint... please bring serving pieces with the dishes ordered.
The small plates we ordered were really good and I’d recommend them: crispy haloumi and the lamb ragú on hummus with chickpeas. However, the main we ordered, the ginger tumeric market fish, had absolutely no flavor at all and the desserts were pretty ‘meh’ as well. The place is nice, service fine, starters great, end of the meal fell totally flat. Too bad. We did let the server know that the fish was bland and she just said, “they use the spices in the batter,” which did nothing to really address the fact that we were dissatisfied with the food.
Just loved every bite we had! Outstanding flavors and choices. We eat very well in New Orleans but Shaya is one we will definitely return to. Compliments to the chef and owners!
Wowza! Best modern Israeli food I’ve ever had and I’ve eaten at Tusk(Portland, OR). Everything is fresh, the pita is unbelievable.
We had a great experience, it's been a long time since we ate our traditional Israeli food. Shaya's dishes are authentic and tasty, the service was excellent and our overall experience was fantastic! Warmly recommended.
We had eaters with different dietary tastes and restrictions and Shaya’s varied menu met everyone’s needs without the need to special order. The food was outstanding as usual but the roasted cauliflower hummus was everyone’s favorite by far! I will come back again and again!
We came to Shaya to celebrate a birthday. We were greated with a hand written birthday card from the staff which was very nice!
The food was AMAZING! My favorite was the Lamb Ragu, but honestly it was all so delicious.
I could get alll my pictures to upload as some where to big, but here are a few.
Out of town family gathering. Food was outstanding.
I have made several trips here and it is consistently excellent. Today, the only noticeable
glitch was the bartender had too much to manage so we waited a little bit too long for a drink. But he was lovely!
The restaurant wrote a beautiful card to wish us a happy anniversary - that was very special! Thanks Shaya team!
