About Us

Since 1997, Layalina Restaurant has served as a cultural and culinary pillar of the Arlington community, serving up mouthwatering Levantine fare with traditional Middle Eastern hospitality to our loyal customers and gastronomically adventurous newcomers. Sharing its name with our youngest daughter, Layal, the restaurant’s name “Layalina” is a beautiful Arabic expression of times spent together with family and friends meaning “Our Nights.” We welcome you to share in our authentic ambience, family atmosphere, and delightful cuisine as you experience a memorable night with us at Layalina.

Layalina is a family-owned and operated establishment, loyal to its customers, and the greater community. We are committed to ensure that every customer feels right at home and returns as part of our Layalina family. All of our mom Rima’s unique recipes are marinated in deep-rooted Lebanese and Syrian heritage, passed down through many generations. Each dish is prepared fresh as if it were made in our own home. So, if it takes a bit longer to get to your table, don’t worry we are just putting extra love into the meal.

We take special pride in each and every item on our menu to ensure your experience with us will be unforgettable. So sit back, relax, and let your senses be your passport to the Middle East through enticing aromas, incredible sights, and most of all remarkable flavors.
