A lovely experience and delicious food as always. First time trying brunch. The friend we brought wants to come back for dinner.
Late lunch ... not crowded, quiet, and comfortable. As always, food and service were very good. Excellent choice for lunch or dinner ... highly recommended!
Our server Elena remembered us from a previous visit which was nice. She was excellent in every way. Food was well-prepared, served hot and delicious. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their meal.
Will definitely return in the future.
I go to Yayla Bistro fairly frequently and it is always wonderful. I have never ordered anything that wasn't delicious. The adana kebab and branzino are special favorites, as well as the different spreads. The service is friendly and attentive, and I like the casual atmosphere. It's fun to sit outside if the weather cooperates. It's also a good place for lunch and the mezza platter makes a great lunch.
Visited on several occasions this year. We are never disappointed. Fantastic dining experience in every way.
The food here is always amazing! Service and atmosphere is wonderful as well. I continue to come here with different people and everyone always loves it!!
Yayla Bistro is a hidden gem! My husband and I went for the first time last week. I originally thought it was Mediterranean, but it is actually primarily Turkish. We got the sampler of three dips (hummus, baba ganoush and a roasted red pepper dip), grilled calamari and stuffed grape leaves. It was all really delicious! We also got the kofta platter and enjoyed that too. The service was just the right level of attentiveness- checking in but not too often and refilling water/bread when they got low without us having to ask. We sat on the patio and the atmosphere was really laid back. The inside seemed a little fancier, but I didn’t look around too much. We will definitely be going back!
Tremendous food. Outstanding service. Now one of our top three restaurants in DC area.
The food at Yayla is outstanding based on what I had - the Moussaka, a salad, baba ghanoush, olive tapenade, and bread. The sServer was new, but had good attitude and will probably learn quickly. For the value, an outstanding choice in Falls Church.
We will be back! Everything we had was very tasty. The service was excellent.
The service and food are always amazing! Great place for lunch with clients or date night.
Great food and good value
Always a great place to dine. Eileena is a joy and makes the PERFECT French martini! Food is very yummy as well and they accommodated my dietary restrictions with no problems!
Every dish was superb! Loved the unusually fabulous combination of flavors. The service was excellent. We had the restaurant almost to ourselves—I guess most who come here to dine do so in the evening.
Excellent food, ease of securing a reservation via Open Table, prompt & friendly service with a smile & they gave our son a free dessert for his birthday (which I noted in our Open Table reservation)--a nice touch! There is also a free parking garage next door for ease of parking.
We have been going there for a hike and since they opened they have increased their prices and their food quality and quantity has decreased to half for some dishes like their Iskander. Sad, I used to love this place
Great food, friendly service. Let me this restaurant.
Wonderful Mother's Day because of the great food, service and ambiance.
Yayla Bistro is our new go-to brunch place. We went there on Mother's Dsy and it was surprisingly not super crowded--maybe due to the rainy weather. There is no loud music and the atmosphere is lovely. The staff is very helpful and food is great. It was a lovely experience.
We definitely will return to Yayla Bistro. The service and food were awesome. Our waitress and staff couldn’t be more attentive and helpful.
Pleasant atmosphere, welcoming wait staff, delicious food.
Always a winner. Never had a sub-par meal at Yayla Bistro.
Great food - good service.
Nice and simple lunch with a friend. Food was great, service was friendly but a little slow, and atmosphere was pleasant. Would be nice if lunch prices were a little cheaper than dinner prices but still would come back for lunch.
We arrived early for lunch, so it was wonderfully calm. The setting is lovely, and we were very happy with the Mezze Platter.
This was our second visit and again we enjoyed amazing food and warm, professional service. A great place to go with friends (you can actually have a conversation!) or a quiet date.
We brought friends here for a lunchtime birthday celebration. We enjoyed a leisurely lunch with excellent food and excellent service and would highly recommend Yayla Bistro based on our experience.
Definitely a great choice for Mediterranean food. Grill special more than adequate for groups.
Appetizers will please and baklava is superior.
Wonderful ambiance. Food is great. Staff is very friendly.
We ate outside, so i can't speak to noise level and ambiance inside. The food was good and the server was very friendly. The downside is parking. Street parking is at premium and even though there is a parking lot across the street, there were only a few restaurant spaces available. If I lived in the neighborhood, I would go there often. But since i do not live in the neighborhood, I doubt that I would return.
Excellent food, very good service, highly recommended.
A great night a Yayla Bistro.Music that you could talk and hear the others at the table, traditional Turkis food and excellent service.
We took two house guests to Yayla the other evening for what turned out to be an excellent meal all 'round. All the portions were substantial and flavourful; our guests were especially enthusiastic. I had the doner kebab, which was delicious. My wife had the vegetable plate, and another guest had the Adana kebab. Our waitress, from Diyarbekir, was gracious and helpful. All in all, an excellent evening.
Very impressive menu, large variety, many options for meat lovers and vegetarians. Our server was very knowledgeable and very attentive. We will definitely come back and bring friends.
The drinks were delicious. We had the zucchini patties, Htipiti, and calamari for appetizers. My friends did not like the way the calamari looked since it was large pieces of grilled squid, but everything else was delicious. Greek salad and lamb kabob for dinner was enjoyed.
Our server, Rona, was a lot of fun. Food was good. Had a vey nice time
Great lunch, great service, will be back; thank you!
This is one of our favorite restaurants. I have been there for many lunches with friends, as well as dinners with my husband, and I love introducing friends to Yayla Bistro.
Service is friendly and courteous, and the food is quite good. I especially love the red lentil soup and the Shepard's Salad for lunches, and the dinner menu is filled with wonderful dishes.
I highly recommend Yayla Bistro.
Fourth time here, have never had anything that was less than fantastic. Highly recommend! I’m picky about lamb and here will order it every time because I know it will be perfect.
Very well prepared Turkish food. If you’ve never had Turkish food, it is comparable to other Eastern Mediterranean cuisines - hummus, kibbe, falafel, kabobs. I particularly recommend the cold appetizer dips to go with Yayla’s delicious bread - dips such as Ezme and Cacik. A safe crowd pleaser entree for sharing is the mixed grill.
Price is not cheap. Dinner for four with beer or wine can easily pass $150 (that includes tip).
