Overpriced street gyro. There was nothing really “fine” about this food. I paid $38 for a gyro. Many llates on menu were also not available. The only positive thing was that it was open MDW.
Absolutely love this family-run business! Such an amazing experience. Will be back again!!!
Yes the Houmus is delicious but to say portions are small is an understatement. Small bowls not even 1/2 filled for $11??? Same went for the other tapas type spreads we ordered. Barely a taste for 1 person.
Shawarma chicken was very dry,, not authentic at all. ..portions inconsistent, didn’t taste good. Salmon was not appetizing.
On the bright side the Baklava dessert was good.
One of the best restaurants in Charleston. The food, atmosphere and customer service are outstanding.
Food was good, but over priced
The food was amazing and the staff very friendly and helpful in making selections!
I am Lebanese and I love my dad’s Mezza. However, Layla’s surpassed it. My wife the Canadian raves about the babaghanouj and the tabbouleh and I love the grilled Kafka. The owner is very friendly and makes us like we are part of the family. All in all excellent experience and lots of fun with friends and family.
Everything we had was delicious. The eggplant mousaka and the Meghli dessert were especially unique and wonderful. Staff was friendly and attentive
Wonderful service & food
Amazing lebanese food!
Amazing presentation quality.
Service was only exceeded by the quality of the food. Authentic recipes prepared onsite with great ingredients.
Very nice dinner. They were extremely accommodating to our vegan diet. Checked in several times to see if all was ok. Highly recommend
Hummus was amazing, but very light on the Pita bread. The fatoosh salad with the lemon and olive oil dressing was the best I ever had. My husband had the chicken kebab which was very good, my lamb kebab was underwhelming. Disappointing the staff didn’t acknowledge our wedding anniversary despite my putting it on my open table reservation. I would go back for the hummus!
We ordered the $50 sampler.
Pistachio Baklava which was just the right amount of sweetness (as in not too sweet)
Great service. Not rushed at all.
Owner comes from kitchen to greet you.
Amazing!! Very authentic and the staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Pricing is high but somewhat understandable from the restaurants location.
Wonderful place with outstanding food. The owners are there to help you pick out foods you may not have tried and they are amazing. We just happened to go here and fell in love with it. Date night or family dinner.
We were disappointed with our experience. We were visiting Charleston and reserved the restaurant after we saw great reviews online. We received affirmations from our hotel concierge and our tour guides as well. We are regular consumers of Mediterranean cuisine so we were excited to try this place.
When we got there, they presented us with a trimmed down menu because they ran out of much of their regular items! Ok fine; my wife asked if they could make her a falafel..She was given 4 flat tasteless cold falafel balls in a saucer with a teaspoon of white sauce under the balls. You can buy better frozen falafel balls from Trader Joe’s. They served no salad, no hot sauce, no tahini nothing. My wife asked the waiter for some tahini or hot sauce. To our surprise, thy charged $4 for sauce!!! (They claim every big restaurant does it). Not true. This seldom happens in NYC.
Also, the waitress was clueless about your menu. She had no idea what was in your main dishes. Overall, up to you if you want to try it. Not really authentic.
Loved the food and ambience of the restaurant. Had a great time.
The food was excellent, and the Pinot Noir was tasty. The cook needs to learn how to properly prepare lamb chops; doesn't do it correctly although the servers tried to make it right. It was a busy night but nonetheless not properly done. We will definitely return to enjoy a deferent dish. GM II
Had to wait 30 minutes for our reservation (it was for 8:30, we got there early at 8 and didn't get seated until 9). Took another 15 minutes to order drinks, then took another 15 to get them. It's 9:30 at this point. They did not advertised that they had a fixed menu for Valentine's Day, and while most fixed menus are some sort of discounted options for special occasions this menu was full price. This was not a big deal after we realized that it was too late to go anywhere else at this point - we should have just gone home and made a pizza it would have been more worth it. We order each course, get our appetizer, then wait 45 minutes before I have to stop a waiter and ask where our entree was. He comes running out of the kitchen to tell me it'll be ready in a few minutes, meaning he didn't put the order in to begin with. We watched another couple that got seated at the same time as us finish their entire meal before we even got our entree. Being a fixed menu, there were only 2-4 options for each course. Should not have taken that long to get our food. We got our entree and it was great but it was close to 10:30 at this point. The waiter gave me a shot for consolation, not really my thing but thanks for the gesture. We got dessert and a $160 check for 2 drinks, 1 app, 2 entrees, and 1 dessert. The food was good, but not worth the prices at all. I've had middle eastern food trucks that were better. They then blamed the long wait on their internet, but seeing as everyone else in the restaurant was being served without much issue I'm not sure that was true. I watched the guy beside us that got seated right after us send back about 3 full orders of lamb shanks and end up eating about 2 of those orders before we got any food at all. For the price and the lack of customer service, we will not be going back. A shame since I am Lebanese and loved this restaurant the first time I went. Might as well slap a Tzaziki's sign over it.
They forgot 1/2 of our order then accused us of not ordering properly. The Hummus and eggplant were Devine! Then they forgot our salad. The yogurt sauce, that I thought might add some moisture to the incredibly dry chicken kabob (over priced as well) came after we were done. The beef had a terrible texture and came with the wrong side. So to make it up to us they bought us a drink which they charged us for. After I lost my mind they fixed our bill. Very aggravating and expensive Valentines dinner for sure.
Service wasn’t good
The limited Valentine’s Day menu was a large drop from the traditional, everyday experience. Have been to this restaurant, and will gladly go again, but this was not my favorite experience
The food was great and the service was amazing. I enjoyed every portion of my 3-course meal. I will be back indeed.
Great service and wonderful fold
Great menu, tons of options, authentic food ...with absolutely top shelf service from every member of the team. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly, and every team member stopped by to take care of us. The owner is lovely, interesting, and absolutely charming and fun to talk with.
Highly highly recommend! We will definitely be back..
It was good food certainly. However the prices are about $10 more then you’d want to pay for just about everything.
We had a wonderful meal at Leyla’s with friends who had never been! We all loved the friendly atmosphere on a cold, rainy night, and as always, the food was wonderful! When we come to Leyla’s we always have dessert whether we saved room for dessert or not! Three of us “devoured” our Osmalieh, and our friend finished his similar wonderful selection! We will all return together or e separately, I’m sure!
Wonderful food and service
Exceptional service, great food, a different food experience for those who have never been to a Lebanese restaurant. Are you from out of town, and tried a few restaurants that all feel sort of the same? Then go here! Meet the owners, they will probably help serve you. I most highly recommend! Oh, and try the Lebanese red wine blend!
Leyla's is my favorite restaurant! No trip to Charleston is complete without at least two meals here. The Lebanese meals are as good as it gets. Everything is fresh and homemade, even the ice cream and sweets.
Every member of the staff is well trained, knowledgeable about the food, and friendly. The restaurant has been honored as a family-friendly place to dine, even though the menu is upscale.
On this occasion, we ordered the LEYLA Royal Mezza Sampler, and it was spectacular! There were interesting items I would not have tried otherwise but will order again. We also shared the lamb chops that were deliciously seasoned and cooked to perfection. The home-made backlava ice cream is a culinary miracle. Needless to say, we went home with leftovers packaged by the staff.
Be certain to treat yourself to at least one meal at Leyla when visiting Charleston. If you live there, go as often as you can. The owners will treat you as family!
Fantastic in every way! Highly recommend.
Great central location.
Always delicious and the owners are so welcoming! Thank you to their son for his great service
We very much like Mediterranean food generally, but Dolly's personal recipes were excellent, and Dolly and Joseph were very gracious hosts (and we got lucky on an uncrowded winter weeknight(.
The bartender was excellent as well, making just the right cocktail for my wife with just a minimum of description from her on what she wanted.
The Lebanese food was some of the best mid eastern food we ever ate. Made me wish I could sample the entire menu..simply wonderful
Fantastic food, cocktails and service! There were so many options for vegetarians and all of the food was outstanding. Our kids loved the food too! The service was excellent.
Talk about an amazing gem! The owners are always there making sure their family recipes are executed perfectly. I wish we had found this place earlier on in our stay in Charleston so that we could have come back. Large portions. Incredible flavors and fresh ingredients!
We have been there several times, and we love the food but the service was horrible this time. Waiters were very sarcastic and not helpful with the menu. Food came cold. Drinks were changed around without us knowing. They were not accommodating at all.
Great food and great staff. Wonderful owners!
Awesome as always even though it was a limited "holiday" menu. Took a group of 8 and everyone raved.
