“In Lebanese "Ya Hala" is our way of saying "we welcome you." We are a family owned restaurant specializing in the finest traditional Lebanese cuisine prepared with the freshest ingredients. Whether we are making you a simple sandwich or creating a lavish banquet, we take pride in treating you like family.”   - Chef Mirna Attar

COCKTAILS: Kalamata Martini, Guava Drop, Rose City Toddy, Ya Hala Iced Tea and so many more unique and delicious libations!

WINES from Lebanon, France, Spain, Italy, Oregon and Washington.

CIDER and BEERS: bottled domestic and imported.

BEVERAGES without alcohol: Lebanese sodas, lemonade with orange blossom water, and yogurt drinks.

DINNER MENU includes a variety of hot and cold Mezzas (appetizers), savory soups and stews, fresh salads, signature entrees from lamb shank to artichoke hearts and delicious desserts.

“The dishes we offer are not typical entrees found in a Lebanese restaurant but are more traditionally from the kitchen of a Lebanese family's home and also include classic street fare and special baked delicacies.”
