Entering the restaurant its very dark, which i personally do not like. ther service was good, With the cheapest Sirlion starting at 40-X $ for my taste way to pricey for my taste. For steak you can only choose between two types of menues - you can't simply get plain steak and a salad. Quality of the Sirlion of my... More

We have eaten at Lelli's many many times over the years starting when they were on Woodward and Grand.. Tuesday night 9-30-14 was our first bad experience with some of the food. First of all, the shrimp cocktail that my husband ordered was not fresh shrimp. A consensus of the table was that the shrimp maybe had been frozen, thawed... More

We had a groupon (although I let it expire so it was only good for the paid amount not the double) so we thought we would give this place a try since we have been driving by it for 20 years. So glad we did. They provide quite a bit of food. You are immediately brought a couple freshly baked... More

Well... didn't know what to expect ....... Soooo pleased with the evening!!! Will absolutely return again. Food was adventurous with the pairing of the wine... the singer was astounding and made the atmosphere seem somehow.....like paradise! And the Host, Mr. Rick Haines couldn't have been more professional in his warmth and hospitality by welcoming us to the evening's festivities. He... More

You don't have to go very far back in these reviews to find that Lelli's was struggling. Review after review talked about how rudely the customer was treated & how unprofessional the staff was. Even my last review, entitled "3 out of 4" spoke of problems experienced at the restaurant. Well, I am cautiously optimistic that our voices were heard.... More

On biz trip to Auburn Hills. On a whim we stopped here for dinner. It was a pleasant surprise. Very professional Maitre D and wait staff. We decided to get the 6 course meal. Each course was delicious and appropriately sized. I had the veal picatta entree, very good. Ended the meal with a glass of Port. Definitely worth a... More

Went with a group and everyone's meal was excellent. I had the rack of lamb which was perhaps the best in recent memory. My wife had the egg plant Parmesan which she raved about. Everyone else had meat dishes which they too enjoyed. Although it adds $$$ to the bill Every entry of the 'traditional' choice was excellent.

Very similar to the old Detroit location it's surrounding and location is nothing to talk about and parking lot concerned me. Inside is very oldschool and menu and service matches it all. Not exciting but not bad either. Menu is huge and they push their "surf and trurf" hard. A steak and lobster combination and they claim their frozen sweet... More
