Israeli
Shaya restaurant marries Israeli staples with Southern flavors and modern techniques, striking a balance between innovation and tradition. Shaya approaches Israeli cuisine as a grand mosaic, drawing influence and inspiration from North Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Turkey and Greece. The contemporary menu reflects the ongoing evolution of Israeli food and celebrates the abundance of Louisiana. Shaya highlights seasonal, responsibly- and locally-sourced ingredients.

The wood-fire oven is central to both the menu and the dining experience, from the incredible homemade, wood-fired pita to vegetable-centric small plates and heartier entrees. Many of the dishes on the diverse menu are meant to be shared and enjoyed throughout many courses.

    The owner skips out on giving bread and gives lavash (a cracker) to customers that order dips - I am assuming to make sure you order more. There were bugs flying all over our food (outside seating). We ended up going inside and they handed us the check for $75 we each gave our card and we went to sign our individual checks , my friend was charged $70 I was charged $60. Math didn’t add up and neither did their intentions. Was really looking forward to dining here but it unfortunately was quite a disaster.

    Top notch experience for lunch! The house made pitas were delightfully warm and fresh. The oven is out in the open which was fun to see. My husband and I shared the Moussaka (loved it- so flavorful), the Cauliflower hummus (with carmelized onions- so delicious), Brussels Sprouts (with shallots and tahini- perfect), the Chicken Schnitzel sandwich (amazing), and their seasoned fries. Steven our server was attentive and helpful. Highly recommend and we will definitely be going back. Great job, Saba!

    We had a wonderful meal. I am Gluten intolerant and our waitress Kimberly was very well versed on the items I could or couldn’t have. I was also provided an amazing crudite tray as a substitute for the pita. We had a wonderful time!

    The appetizers were good but lamb kebab was extremely salty. The waiter went to kitchen to ask for replacement but the kitchen stated they made the batch for the day so it would be the same even if replaced. Cannot believe the qualify has gone down since our last visit 6 months ago. Will probably not return —go to Saba restaurant instead.

    we loved our waiter and the bartender and entire staff, the food was excellently . we were celebrating a 71st bday and a retirement after 44 years . the noise level was much too high for 4 of us on our sixties and seventies . otherwise — all was perfect . pls consider lowing the volume of the music or installing. thx something in the ceiling to buffer sound
