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.

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

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

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.

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!

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.
