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.

    Awesome as always. Only comment is about not having the kibe naya although in the menu. They said we had to order with 2 days in advance given local regulations. Would be great to know about it when making the reservation so we can order the kibe naya. We really love it and got frustrated for not being possible to have it.

    Food was amazing as always. Sampled several different dishes. The meat (kabobs) in particular was well cooked and delicious. Server appeared at exactly the right times to check in - not too much and not too little. Highly recommend reservations.

    The only difficulty with siting by the front with the doors open is that you get marijuana wafting from outside the restaurant to inside.

    Excellent food. The chicken shawarma and mixed grill trays were delicious. The fattoush was also well made with fresh ingredients. The Fried kibbeh balls were small but generously stuffed. I particularly loved the Jellab drink with pines and pistachios. My friend and I are Lebanese and we appreciated a nice evening. The staff was fun, warm and welcoming especially Jorge. All the best.

    Whenever I'm in Midtown East, this is my go-to. The waitstaff are lovely, the food is excellent, the wine list is exciting, and the value is great. On a weeknight, it's also usually quite low in terms of noise, and the booths are all partitioned.

    NAYA’s food and service are both at elite levels. Everything my date and I ordered was absolutely fantastic and the wait staff was extremely friendly. My phone died and they offered to charge it with a smile, and they were angels with the takeaway containers. Smiling all the time, wonderful caring service, unbelievably cool space, delicious food. Will be coming back again multiple times.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at NAYA. FOOD was very tasty. We shared a bunch of small plates and two entrees. Service was good. We had a later reservation (8:15) and the kitchen closed at 9:30. Our waiter made sure we got our full order in. They definitely close earlier than many restaurants so we felt like we had to eat it and beat it. We will return but next time with an earlier reservation. Totally recommend it!
