OK, I'm going to use Lilac as a vehicle for a rant on "gourmet" restaurants--gourmet meaning an overpriced, mediocre, less-than-satisfying eating experience that certain people flock to because they "want" all of the above. I don't get it. So...Lilac details: I was encouraged to order...More

Came here with my girlfriend a few years ago and haven't stopped since. This place is a classy dining experience with top notch customer service. Billings has very few options of nice dining but this is one of them. 5 stars!

Lilac was one of the restaurants my daughter and I tried during our visit with her. As serious foodies, we always like new adventures and flavors. We thought Lilac was interesting, a creative menu with interesting flavors and we really enjoyed our experience. I had...More

All of the women in our dining party was satisfied with the meals. However, the 6' 2" male was not happy with the portions. I'd go back to "Bin 119" instead. Food not as gourmet, but you'll be full after your meal.
