Staff is awesome!!
In my Top 10 in Mtl
Amazing first-time experience, the staff was so friendly and attentive. Our waiter Ali was incredible- after checking in on budget, he made a number of recommendations and we just ended up going with a surprise tasting menu didn’t disappoint. One the best dining experiences in Montreal.
Best meal we've had in Montreal in a long time. Food is fantastic, ambiance is cozy and sophisticated, and service (we especially loved our server, Ali) was seriously impressive. We're already planning our next meal here.
I would recommend this restaurant , to everyone.
The waiter gave us an outstanding service , the food and flavors were authentic
Wonderful evening at Ayla. I highly recommend this restaurant for the superb food and friendly staff! We will definitely be back!
Fantastic experience! Highly recommend
Modern touch to classic Lebanese dishes with fantastic flavors and presentations. A few things were over cooked and service needs a little more attention. Overall a nice establishment
Great tastes of Mediterranean foods from Israel to Turkey passing by Egypt.
Great Wine list well priced and tasty.
I will go back.
Geeat food and vibes!
It is a lovely restaurant that really takes care because of the pandemic.
I had Cornish hen which was fabulous
Two words. Total disappointment.
For those that don’t care for reading, just save yourself some time and money and don’t go here. Service is BEYOND terrible.
Missing dishes, mistake after mistake, waiter no where to be found.
Mistake on our order, mistake on our bill.
It takes 4 hours to eat here as they really dont take care of you.
Foods pretty good but definitely not worth it after dealing with such bad service.
Stay home or go to another middle eastern restaurant. Petit Alep, Damas, etc Much better quality and service.
Really nice vibe, cool decos, hip place
Service was amazing, food was delicious (tapas style so ordered many dishes and dips between 2 people), we love cocktails and sat at the bar which was comfortable and a whole fun part of the experience watching the bartender, learning about alcohols and tasting the great drinks ! Highly recommended
Love the food here. Amazing decor and great atmosphere. Service was slow hence the 4 stars but other then that love the place
Agréablement surpris!! Belle ambiance chic décontracté sans prétention. La nourriture est délicieuse et sort de l'ordinaire. La cuisine mise sur la qualité, le goût et la fraîcheur. Les épices sont à l'honneur et nous font voyager. Le service est impressionnant pour un aussi jeune restaurant. Notre serveur connaissait bien son menu en plus de nous offrir d'excellents accompagnements 🍷🍸. Déjà hâte d'y retourner pour essayer d'autres plats.
Incredible food paired with a wonderful atmosphere and some great service made for an amazing evening. Anyone who likes fresh mediterranean food should definitely check this place out.
Ayla was « WOW ». We were in front of the kitchen. The chef was incredible. The food will make you want to travel to Middle East. At least that’s what it did to us. Amazing food. Amazing service. The restaurant itself is also incredibly beautiful.
Always nice to discover little hidden gem like that in the area.
The only advice I could give is try yourself and you won’t be disappointed!
Thanks again Ayla for the amazing experience ! We will be back for sure!
Food impeccable, and the waiters!! David, Sam, Dario, we’re exceptional. Highly recommend
The whole experience was outstanding, amazing food and service, would recommend it to anyone! We will go back soon!
Service was really great ! Nice wine menu. The food is good a bit expensive.
Ayla had been open for only two days post pandemic. Booking was easy although the restaurant filled (according to distancing requirements). Service was impeccable; friendly, helpful, professional and efficient. The food was superb; well presented and delicious. When the owner discovered that these seniors were frequent diners at RYU Westmount, he immediately donned a mask and came over to welcome us. As it was my friend’s birthday she was sent a scrumptious dessert. Nothing could have added to the joy of the experience.... except maybe knowing that the valet parking was free. Definitely a favourite and a place to return frequently.
