Service is professional and friendly. Our salmon entrees could not have been better. Side dishes are very tasty. The Lebanese wine was fabulous. Please try this restaurant despite it being in a dated strip mall!

The waitress was extremely rude and the food portions were small for the large price. I expressed my concerns to the owner and he couldn't care less. We left very disappointed with this restaurant. There are better Middle Eastern restaurants in the city.

Try, try, try the babaganoush--it is amazing, not too smoky, smooth and creamy, served with hot, fresh pita. We enjoyed their falafel, fatoush salad and chicken shawarma sandwich wraps also.

The food is good, although the menu is fairly limited. Don't go thinking you'll get many good vegetarian options.

I highly recommend this place for those who want to experience the true middle Eastern Cuisine... I tried dishes that are unique to that region, they all were executed perfectly; kibbe nieh (beef tartar), Arayes (flat bread with meat), and Bahmea (ukra) with lamb shank......More

Specializing in Lebanese cuisine, using the finest and freshest ingredients. Layla's Lebanese Restaurant was first established in December 2006, in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. After 8 wonderful years in business, Layla's relocated to Lake Ridge, VA, where Lebanese cuisine was nearly nonexistent. The same talented chef along with the same warm staff will continue providing the delicious Lebanese cuisine and friendly service guests have grown accustomed to.
