We have visited this restaurant about four times now. The food is consistently very good and you’ll see the same friendly faces with each visit. Try something new, you’ll never be disappointed!

Only so much shrimp and grits you can eat. Layla’s is good Lebanese food with an attentive staff. We had several selections from the Hot Mezza menu that were all tasty. You do need reservations- they were hopping for a Wednesday night.

Decided to take a break from low country cooking for a vegetarian meal and was pleasantly surprised how good everything was. Had an amazing experience. Would give 6 stars if possible. ;)

We had a late dinner last night and ordered one of the chef's choice options, where they essentially bring a generous taste of everything. So many dips, salads, meats - and their olive oil is exceptional. The service is wonderful, the bar is fantastic, and...More
