While having dinner at Layla's for the first time was a result of me being out-voted, it was a pleasant surprise. The service was very attentive-I was never left with an empty glass. For appetizers, we tried the baba ganoush and the spinach pies. Both...More

I've eaten here several times and find myself regularly craving the lentil soup. It's pretty close to perfect, particularly because of the light citrus infusion in the soup. I usually get an order of the rice pilaf with it, and eat the two together -...More

It was a quiet little place – good to fair service - friendly waitress. Ambiance is fair with very modest decorations. The food looked extremely fresh and was delicious. This is a place to come for a great meal in a relaxed, welcoming environment. Although...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.
