Great total experience- great food selection as well as preparation, very attentive staff
This is a rare find in Metro DC: flavor, courtesy, VALUE
Excellent food, atmosphere and service
Five of us enjoyed sharing a mezze platter and grill platter, eating outside on their lovely side patio. The food and service was excellent! On a beautiful day, what could be better than sharing good food outside with friends?
Always wonderful, warm service and great food. Super outdoor space too.
Excellent starters and main courses. Great service. Quiet, with nice music that wasn't loud. Only suggestion: branzino was a little dry; maybe serve it whole instead of filet?
Warm welcome from staff, super competent wait staff
I can't believe we lived in NoVa for three whole years before we discovered this gem! We're huge fans of Mediterranean food, and have struck out on several attempts to find a go-to spot. We finally found it at Yayla. Food was outstanding, start to finish. Service was everything you'd want in a quaint neighborhood joint. I felt like I was a part of the family! We can't wait to go back.
Incredible- the service, the food, the drinks! Every single thing that our party of 4 ordered was outstanding. Moussaka was the best I’ve ever had. Dining room was lovely, outside dining looked fun, fantastic servers. Save room for the layered chocolate dessert - tremendous.
Can’t wait to return
My new favorite restaurant! It will be yours too! My son and I had a couple of Turkish meat dishes, cheese and olive plate, bread, hummus, some other dish to dip and add to food, Turkish beer, and of course Turkish coffee to wrap up the meal. Everything was absolutely delicious. Full of fresh flavor. The staff was friendly, happy and funny, we sat outside and it was perfect! I'll be going back as often as possible.
We stopped in for lunch and had a wonderful dining experience. The recommended entrees were delicious and my wife and I enjoyed sampling from each other's plate.
One word, awesome!!
The branzino was slightly over cooked and the vegetable side was just phones in. It’s disappointing to have such a beautiful fish set next to undercooked, bland and boring vegetables.
Great mediteranian choices with execellent service.
A wonderful restaurant with amazing food and service.
Great food, superior service, very reasonable prices.
Yayla exceeded our expectations. The kebab special was superb, so savory and tender. Please put it on your regular menu. Great overall experience.
Eat, drink local!
We had not been here in a few years- the last time we had eaten here was WAY back in the "before times." Honestly, the food was just as good or even better than I remembered! The selection was great, the quantities felt appropriate and we really enjoyed the experience outside. The outside felt quiet and appropriately distanced so that was wonderful and we will be back!
I went to Yayla's on Valentine's Day with my significant other.
They had a Valentine's Day menu that included an appetizer, a main dish, and a dessert. The food we ordered from that menu was delicious, but the $40.00 requirement for each person was a complete turnoff. My significant other an I asked for the regular menu which served food at </= $30.00, but we were told that we could only order off of the V-day menu. We were seriously thinking about leaving, but decided against it because there where not many other places thay had open reservations at the time.
The only saving grace was the delicious food, but I strongly suggest that Yayla's give their customers options. We were very irritated that they did not.
Food was great. Our server Mia was tentative and excellent. Defiantly I will dine there again.
The staff was very attentive and professional and tended to our needs! The food was abundant and tasty
Eaten there several time now and every meal has been a joy. The service is consistent, friendly and unobtrusive!! The meal was all deliciously memorable, with delicious calamari and trio sampler with the baba ganoush just perfect to begin. I had the salmon and it was perfectly cooked. The cheese and marmalade (halloumi cheese) was a new experience, and I will always order it here: they do it perfectly. I am a new fan!
Such an amazing Falls Church gem (though it may be in an Arlington address). Then, across the street for a precious local bookstore. Cannot praise enough! & such lovely people. Michael
The calamari starter is worth a special trip. Excellent selection of Turkish wines
Yayla offers great food and great service. It has a good list of Turkish wines, with some excellent reds and whites.
Had a lovely late lunch on the deck. Excellent food as always. Had my favorites, Yayla Soup, & Manti. Our favorite server, Rona, took great care of us.
Food was amazing. Servers kept seeing me wait by the host table and didn’t come until I flag them down. Otherwise everything was great.
Great neighborhood restaurant. We dined outside. There’s plenty of patio seating and sitting in the open air on a nice day is a good experience. Food is fine. We had moussaka and several mezze. Flavors were interesting and presentation was solid. And an opportunity to try Lebanese, Turkish wines.
Great restaurant with authentic Turkish/mediterranean food!
The food was delicious and service was excellent. They also have brunch on the menu and will check it out in the near future. Will recommend to anytime who wants to have a good Mediterranean meal.
The moussaka is not what it used to be for $20. Disappointing.
Friendly service and delicious authentic Mediterranean dishes. The haloomi cheese and branzino were standouts.
Everything we ordered was delicious! The service was very quick and attentive, the ambiance is classy and welcoming, and the indoor seating was very spread out to keep with social distancing. The highlights of our meal was the halloumi cheese (very flavorful!) and the manti (the garlic yogurt gave the dish a refreshing and light feel). Great spot!
The lamb chops were delicious, as was the bronzino.
Server was very informative and gave a welcoming vibe. The food was good and portion was great. Would recommend if anyone want to try out Turkish food and looking for a quite romantic atmosphere.
The food was good but not great. The service was good but not great. I had really high expectations because of the reputation this restaurant has and it didn’t quite reach that mark. I spent 3 weeks in turkey and it’s one of the best places I’ve visited, I didn’t think the food came close to authentic food I had when I was in the country.
We love Yayla Bistro! The food and the people are perfect! It is our go to place when we want a lovely relaxing evening!
We celebrated Valentine's Day here and the place was packed. The service was very good and we left very full. Quick note that it's very loud in the main room. We enjoyed our meal and the server, Ahmed, was very helpful. One other note, though, is that it's primarily a Turkish restaurant, vs. Greek. There are some excellent Greek items on the menu, such as the moussaka, however, it's not Greek the way Nostos in Tysons is. For a Turkish place, it's 5-star.
Rating was based a Valentine’s Day dinner. Booth seating was in the bar area (even with a reservation) which was not ideal for romance. Food was great. Overall will try again and hope for a more intimate seating spot. Service was inconsistent.
Overall 4/5, very good restaurant. A few rough edges on the service/food - for example, we had multiple food runners come by our table asking if we had a particular dish, when it was meant for another table. The baklava was some of the best I've had!
This was our first time dining at Yayla and they did not disappoint! Good food, nice ambience and killer baklava! We will definitely eat returning
