This is by far my favorite spot in the area. Intimate atmosphere in the heart of Jenkintown, PA. The staff is beyond friendly and helpful. They get to know their customers. The food and drinks are delicious! I truly love going there!

They serve the best roast chicken anywhere. It is well beyond anything you can make at home. They serve mostly traditional fare, chops, fish, pasta. But the dishes are delicious. They are some fancier offerings, like escargot over something creamy, but all there food is...More

Leila's Bistro has recently opened on Bethlehem Pike in the former Roberto's. The food was wonderful and the service was friendly and prompt. The onion soup is amazing. Unlike any you have had before. Try the brussel sprouts as well. They don't have a liquor...More

The food is extremely overpriced for what it is. The owner duo are also nothing to write home about. Save your money and go elsewhere.
