We had a wonderful dinner this week for our anniversary at Lily's. This is an excellent restaurant with great service. The chef's menu is very inventive and they use interesting spices and flavors. I had the Tuna steak which was carefully seated and my wife had the seafood crepes. Granted the restaurant was not busy but our waiter was attentive... More

Nice menu for Mother's Day. Had a 2 pm reservation. We were taken on time, greeted promptly by our waiter. Appetizers, entrees, and deserts were excellent. The restaurant was busy but they appeared to have enough help and all the waitstaff were very attentive to their tables. It was a wonderful meal...thank-you!

Three girlfriends went for lunch. Surprisingly it was quite empty. But I think it is because most people think of it as a dinner place. The selections are "different" and that of a very upscale restaurant. Prices are definitely high but not over what you would expect for the presentations and great food. The restaurant itself is beautiful inside and... More

Quiet setting on the 2nd floor of the business building. The Deviled Eggs were a great appetizer. The main course was excellent, followed by a delicious dessert.

A small group of women went here for lunch with reservations - the good kind, not the bad kind. We ordered different things from the menu, and all of our food was delicious. Even more striking than that was the presentation. Each dish came out looking like a work of art. We oohed and aahed over each other's food before... More

I did not find this place to be very classy. The host and servers were indifferent to our needs. No welcoming smile, didn’t ask how everything was, didn’t seem to want to please us. In fact, the staff acted like they were doing us a favor by taking our order. This was not a happy, positive, enjoyable experience. Although the... More
