    Came in for an early Sunday dinner so the restaurant was quiet, but we very much enjoyed ourselves. Our server was Max and he had great recommendations and was very attentive, we ordered the Kale Salad, Ricotta, and Lamb Orzo which was INCREDIBLE. Such a fab dinner and will definitely be back!

    Excellent food, service, and ambiance all around. We will try to come more regularly. Loved the red pepper dip from the mezze platter, and the lamb entree wow! Maximilian, our server, was fantastic - pleasant, personable, and helpful.

    One of the best restaurants I've been too. The service is wonderful. I've been twice and each time the service had gone above and beyond. My friend has a severe nut allergy and the waiter was very informative and careful about the meals and drinks selected. The ambience of the place is perfect for long chats and comfort. The food is always brilliant each time I go. Definitely a delight, and I will be bringing more people for future events!

    The exterior fools you to think that the restaurant won’t be so good, but, we were totally surprised. Cool interior, music and vibes. The service was excellent. The staff was very attentive and unobtrusive. The food was fabulous. Portions are not big so we ordered a large variety of dishes and each was delicious. There was so much flavor in the interesting variations of traditional Mediterranean dishes. They give and replenish the bread so that helps fill you up. The mezzo platter is delish. Kofte is different from the standard flavor and we loved it. The salmon was a good portion and moist. The Israeli salad is good but small (lacks lettuce and has tomatoes & cukes.the octopus was okay, not a favorite. Overall, everyone loved the place.

    I love this place but they have made some Ridiculous changes for the summer time. You have to scan the menu , place your own order and Pay for it before you get anything!! We were a group of 8 celebrating a birthday, super confusing , when a bill is over 500 dollars I do not want to put in my order myself , not have the full server experience, I mean we do this in our supermarkets on self serve , this is no place for it. Server was helpful and apologetic and helped us through all of it but won’t be coming back until they go back to normal. Food is excellent

    Beautiful hidden gem! We went for dinner, and food and drinks were delicious. What we didn’t quite understand is the type of service, paying in Advance.. also the server only came once at the beginning of service. We didn’t have anyone checking on us to see how was the food etc etc. Overall everything was good.

    I HATE THE NEW ORDERING APP!!! I'm a local who used to love Layla. Now I HATE it. No more servers! You walk into the restaurant, sit down, and...no servers. You scan a QR code and place your order on your phone. What is this??? Uber Eats??? You can't ask for anything other than what the menu offers. Dressing on the side? No! Extra pita? No! Please bring my entree with everyone else's. No! It comes when it comes. Plus, a 20% service charge is added...which is NOT the tip. You add the tip ON TOP of the food charge. No diner will do that, so servers are screwed. Plus, you can't share a bill as a credit card is required BEFORE you order anything. Whoever came up with this horrible idea should be fired! Layla, please make a public announcement when you shut down this stupid app! PEOPLE, AVOID THIS PLACE!!!

    I was a frequent diner here for well over a year until last night. I requested my regular server and patio preference for sitting. When I arrived the Maitr’D hadn’t even ready my Open Table request. After being seated I was informed that rather than being waited on by a server the new system was that guests order the food on their phone, pay for it on their phone including a 20% service charge. I wasn’t able to order any sides to go with my entree and eventually called the server over to see how to order the sides I always order when I have previously come to Layla. It became so frustrating my guest and I just walked out. I won’t be returning to Layla. The new system is not guest/user friendly and I certainly won’t pay 20% service fees when the service is poor. If I have to do all the work I’d rather pay myself the service fee!

    Preston was a dream - attentive and informative. The food was sublime. Yes, it has a nice spicy twist but delightful. The chef has mastered silky smooth mezze and fresh homemade pita. The mushrooms were to die for. The eggplant, in every form, was the best I have ever had. Don’t miss the bread pudding - not your grandma’s I assure you. All this for a super price in a special setting! Treat yourself

    We had an incredible experience. The service was fantastic, such good recommendations and the food was just as amazing. We ordered the octopus, mushroom dish (best thing I’ve eaten in a long time) and the Branzino, everything was so so delicious, would highly recommend. And the atmosphere was stunning, the decor was beautiful, tasteful and felt like a little oasis. Can’t wait to go back!

    Such a hidden gem! Amazing food, attentive service, and great atmosphere. We sat in the outdoor patio area which has a great, lush green atmosphere and is a little more quiet than inside, which we preferred. We got the one table that wasn’t blasted by sun, so we especially appreciated that. :) overall, would definitely go back if we are ever back in Miami.

    Meh. Did the tasting menu and felt like an afterthought. Waited a decent amount of time before drinks got ordered/ served . No one checked in re food preferences / allergies. Wouldn’t recommend. Too many other good places nearby to waste time / money here . Food was mediocre .

    Good food but terribly overpriced. $38 for a piece of chicken with no sides. $30 fee to hold a birthday cake. Uncomfortably hot inside and no fans to alleviate the heat. Very beautiful and the food was tasty but no way one single octopus tentacle is $30. Servers were very helpful and nice.

    Very good food however the waiter was more interested in bringing the check than food maybe because he knows he doesn't need to work good because service is already included. He Forgot part of the order did not accept to bring desert because the kicken was already closed.

    Excellent cuisine ! We had the messe and the eggplant one was out of this world ! Then we ordered the cauliflower and the lamb. The lamb was delicious, perfectly cooked and tender, and very nice sweet sauce. For dessert we had the blonde, very strong almond taste I loved it ! The ambiance is nice ! Nice music and beautiful terrace with plants. We couldn’t sit outside unfortunately but if you can make a reservation for the terrasse I highly recommend it ! We paid 95 dollars for 2 people, with 20% tip comprised.

    Super cute ambiance- right on the canal. Decorated with a middle eastern tropical vibe. Food was superb. The mezze platter was super good. Falafel was super crispy on the outside and light on the inside. Everything was very flavorful. Cured salmon was amazing. To top it off service was perfect.
