My friend and I went for a leisurely dinner tonight, and had such a wonderful time. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was impeccable! The waiter couldn't have been friendlier, sweeter or more attentive. We will definitely be back!

This place is a little too pricey for the portions but the food is really delicious and authentic.

we stopped by after work looking for 'just a small bite'. from the first step to the minute we left we were paid the absolute possible minimum of attention. food was good, not excellent but i could not say anything bad about it. what unfortunatly ruined experience was the service! my friend and i were not dressed fancy or casual but in regular office outfits...and that was our mistake it seems. service was so very obviously not paying attention to 'the average spender'. we were NOT asked ONCE if we liked the food, would like to order a new drink or needed anything else. we were left sitting in front of our empty plates for at least 20 minutes and finally asked a waiter to remove them! service at naya is only good if you wear the right clothes , order main meals and are what they apparently consider their 'target clientele'. we saw how people around us were treated and it was actually comical compared to what we got... so, if you want good food AND good service...i have to give the silly recommdation to dress to impress. how sad!

i have been to beirut six times in the last 18 months and this restaurant is better than a lot of restaurants in lebanon. i look my lebanese fiancee here and she loved it. the kibbe was awesome, batata harra great, i loved the fattoush and the mixed grills were great also. the service was very good, the place in absolutely beautiful. the food is excellent. the price for the portions is very reasonable. the owner is very attentive. i live a block away and will be a fixture here.

The place looks like George Jetson's chic living room, but the food tastes like Grandma made it in the back. This restaurant is a welcome change from the barren culinary wasteland that is the east 50's. All the mezze are superb< loved the Tabbouleh. the spicy shrimp. The only complaint was that a few of the dishes were just too cold and should have been served more room temperature so you could appreciate the spices> the dried fruit salad was fabulous> it was whole apricots soaked in a wonderful sryup with pistachios.For the main course we had fish in spicey tahini with pine cuts, just fresh and bursting with great flavors. This restaurant is a real find go try it.

We popped in for a quick bite as we'd just got off a trans-Atlantic flight. Granted, we were in Juicy Courure and not Armani but you would have thought we were in rags for the snobbish and frosty manner in which the owner or manager or whoever treated my mother and me, while he fawned on his blinged-up buddies at the (too-close) next booth, Some dishes werre fresh and lovely, esp. falafel, but others tasted of the refrigerator, I was broken-hearted to have my mother looked down upon in this way, in a place smaller than a Diner, and somehow dont think they'l survive the recession unless they trim prices and make nice with locals. We wont be back. Gordeon Ramsay, teach them something!

Guys Bravoooo. Good job. I don't understand how somebody could have designed such a beautiful restaurant in such a narrow space. It should definitely be in a design book. The food is outstanding in terms of quality and freshness. I liked everything I ordered. we were 4. so I had the chance to try everything. We ended up 35$ per person and we had lot of wines.
