Our Story

Our Story

Neyla continues to delight the senses as they move their restaurant from Georgetown, D.C. to The Reston Town Center in a new design that is innovatively crafted, with a warm, modern, yet rustic environment.

Our Story

A Bistro, A Bar, A Place where old world leisure combines with new world convenience, so whether you dine with us, carry out a Mediterranean salad, have a gathering in our private dining room or have us cater to you, you can anticipate garden fresh vegetables, select cheeses, meats and fish prepared with an Eastern Mediterranean influence. Each dish will have distinctive flavors that are unique to NEYLA with subtle spiced sauces. Coriander, cinnamon, basil, thyme, and coffee with cardamom enrich the cuisine and speak to its heritage.

The cuisine, d├ęcor and ambience blend traditionalism and modernism with comfort and innovation.


Your Hosts



Do you remember Souheil from Georgetown's Neyla? Restaurants are Souheil's passion, they are in his blood. He strives to enhance guest satisfaction and elevate standards of service, keeping the guest in the forefront of all he does. Souheil exemplifies the charm and class that defines hospitality.

Born in Morocco, Souheil spent a majority of his childhood and high school years working in kitchens and dining rooms during which time he developed a strong acumen for restaurants and hospitality. Fluent in English, French and Arabic, Souheil brings a culmination of international experience to the table, making him well suited for the melding of cultures in the Reston community. Souheil is the "heart" behind what makes Neyla special.
