A really fine experience. Very relaxed mood, delicious food, a great Israelian wine (Dalton), fine ambiente a good value for money. A little mistake by the service was that the main course followed too quickly on the starters although we had asked for a break. But we were offered a free dessert as compensation.
The amount of food is relatively big for this class of restaurant and really great taste.

We enjoyed being guests from the minute we entered the Restaurant. The food is just amazing, so tasty. The staff was very friendly and attentive the entire time and gave great recommendations. We will definitely visit another time. Worth the money, great quality. Great experience.

Das Essen war wunderbar. Jedes Gericht war in sich stimmig. Optisch wie geschmacklich. Eine wahre Geschmacksexplosion verschiedener Gewürze und ausgewählter Zutaten. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder :-)

Auf alle Fälle würden wir das Layla weiterempfehlen. Ausgezeichnetes Ambiente und ausgezeichneter Service! Das Essen ist gut und ausgefallen, die Auswahl könnte größer sein und die Preise etwas niedriger.
Die offene Küche ist spannend, es macht Spaß den Köchen bei der Zubereitung der Speisen zu beobachten. Weiterhin gibt es sehr gute und ungewöhnliche Cocktails. Die Bar ist ebenfalls sehr empfehlenswert, vor oder nach dem Essen oder beides ... Es ist aber eher eine Empfehlung für besondere Anlässe, da die Preise doch relativ hoch sind.

The atmosfire and the food were great.
The restarant has acustic problem.
You can't here your partners to the table.
This problem can be solve with some simple acustic soulotions.

Outstanding. We dropped by for a dinner and we were so excited about the place that we returned the next evening. The food is magical, the ambiance is pounding with energy and it matches the food perfectly. Extraordinary.

Der Service ist enttäuschend: Wasser und Wein durfte der Gast, der einen stattlichen Betrag für ein Dinner für 2 hinterlässt, persönlich nachschenken. Sämtliche Roséweine der Karte waren nicht verfügbar. Ohne Hinweis ex-ante darf dies bei einem Restaurant dieser Kategorie nicht passieren. Die Toiletten waren hochgradig unhygienisch vorzufinden. Das einzig Lohnenswerte ist tatsächlich das fein angestimmte Essen. In den Rahmenbedingungen in toto aber nicht zu empfehlen.

This was my first time going to Layla and I have to say it was worth every cent. Once we got there we got seated by a lovely host who was very nice and attentive and let us switch our tables eventhough they had a full house. We started with some bread, dips and an Aubergine Carparccio and it was delicious. My maincourse choice was the octopus, which they also fulfilled everything that I wanted it to be. My boyfriend had the Lambchops which were also on point. We had a young guy named Ori as our server who made sure our dishes got to us fast and he was also very charming. The whole vibe of the restaurant is very hip and casual but still high class. The bar also had amazing cocktails which have a lot of self made ingredients. We ended our dinner with an excellent desert. Overall we had an amazing time and we can’t wait to be back.

The timing was horrible. We went for NYE and we started the dinner at 9.30 pm and we haven't finished at 2.00 am yet. It didn't came one of the plates. Because of this delete we couldn't arrive to the Silvester party on time. That's a pity because the food was really amazing.

-Das gesamte Menü war eine Katastrophe!

-Musik war so laut, dass man sich kaum unterhalten konnte!

Platz an der Bar zur offenen Küche, war sehr unbequem und Köche waren so im Stress dass Mann nass von Wasserspritzern wurde! Nach 30 min sind wir an einen Tisch.

- Das Essen war bis auf zwei Gänge furchtbar. Kein gutes Sashimi , zu fette und zu intensive Soßen. Einen Gang haben wir weggelassen damit wir um 24 Uhr fertig sind!!

- Service war schlimm! Sie wollten uns zweimal den
Gang bringen, den wir gerade hatten🙄!

Erster und letzter Besuch!!!!!!

Hoping our experience was unique to the New Years Eve Rush, however we did not experience the level of service and attentiveness one would expect from a 155 euro per person Prix Fixe menu. While the food was good, we waited 45 minutes between our last few courses, and no one offered to refill my wine despite flagging servers down.

Das Essen war wualitativ hervorragend. Allerdings waren von der Vielzahl der raffinierten Geschmäcker auf einem Teller zunehmend überfordert. Etwas zu heftig war das Knoblauchpürée zu den wunderbaren Lammchops-leider geschmacklich erschlagend! Das zweite Dessert konnte optisch nicht mehr mit den wunderbar anzusehenden Vorgängen mithalten. Geschmacklich war es top. Trotzdem alles in allem ein toller Abend in lässiger Atmosphäre. Ach ja- die Lautstärke der Musik bitte auf älteres Publikum anpassen. Wir unterhalten uns noch gerne und sitzen nicht nur autistisch mit Smartphone rum :-).

Tolles Ambiente, zeitweise überforderter und langsamer Service, leckeres Essen. aber hierfür viel zu teure (Haupt) Speisen.

Portion Brot mit Dip elf Euro. Vorspeisen Tintenfischportion für 39 (!) Euro. Weine ebenfalls fast alle jenseits der 40 € Grenze und deshalb: das nächste Mal, trotz des sehr guten Essens und des tollen Ambientes, lieber woanders!

Ich habe noch nie erlebt in einem Restaurant dieser Preisklasse gepanschten Wein kredenzt zu bekommen ( offenbar bescheisst das Personal sein Management auf Kosten der Gäste).

Hallo Yorck, An dem Abend wo Sie bei uns zu essen waren hatten wir die Weinflasche in einen Weinkühler gestellt. Da den Abend durch,das Wasser im Kühler schmilzt ist die Flasche leider reingerutscht und wurde somit vermischt. Unser Kellner hat es leider nicht mitbekommen und hat Ihnen zwei Gläser Wein eingeschenkt. Daraufhin bin ich an Ihren Tisch gekommen,habe die Situation erklärt und Ihnen zwei neue Gläser eingegossen. Es tut mir leid wenn es Missverständnisse gab. Liebe Grüße, Team Layla

For quit a while on my wishlist the two hours at layla sadly were a complete disappointment. The food was good but the circumstances made it almost impossible to appreciate it. Obviously the team was still preparing for the evening, because ´there was a lot off traffic going on between the show kitchen in the middle of the restaurant and the backup. They past our table alt least fifteen times, once with a huge blue garbage bag, and the door to the back up kitchen stood open for minutes offering an unpleasant view on the door cleaning stuff. It was quite loud, pretty cold and kind of drafty in the whole room.
And the prices are sorry...ridiculous. I had one small and lonely octopus Arm and three baby carrots on my plate for 45 EUR...sorry not acceptable. We left with a total of 140 EUR including 2 small appetizers and two main courses. No wine, just water.....So definitely not recommended!

The food, ambiance, and service is always fantastic! But this time the starters and first courses arrived all at once, followed by a too-long break between the main course and dessert. We felt the hosts were too few and had too many guests to attend to (with xmas). But we had a lovely evening and the food experience and ambiance is just sublime.

The food itself was nicely presented and most of it was tasty. Expect little bits and pieces with drops of dips. We found the price level ridiculous for what they offer: untrained staff, extra small portions, unlit tables so you can hardly see what is on your plate, tasteless wine. We had three starters, two bottles of water and four glasses of wine which made an invoice of 145 €. Had to have a pizza elsewhere to get fed. We won‘t come back before the prizes are reduced by at least a third.
