Overpriced even with Groupon

Went there with the Groupon which only allowed us to purchase the six course dinner. This is way too much food. Who can or should eat that much food in one sitting? Had to take a lot home. I ordered the lobster which came dry and overcooked. They offered to take it back and bring me something else... read more

The 6-courses all were wonderful. The filet mignon was superb and cooked flawless. Tight turns getting into seating but once seated DOMINIQUE was the best waitress ever!

The Chateaubriand for 2 is incredible. The whole experience from service to ambiance to food is first class. Romantic, lovely evening with my husband. Each course was better than the last.

I ordered the filet well my wife ordered the sea bass both entrees were very good. We also got the Caesar salad prepared table size which was also excellent. However Lee, our waiter seemed less than enthusiastic about being at work even as we tried to bring some personality out of him. Most of his service was sufficient but for... More

The sign at the door says they've been around 75 years- unfortunately it is hard to maintain excellence. Staff was friendly but kitchen was extremely slow. Appetizers were absolutely embarrassing level of quality. Shrimp looked like it was out of a meijer freezer case. Main entrees (filet, porterhouse) were not even average. Our guests had to wear their coats as... More

We visited Lelli's for a special occasion meal and were very pleased and satisfied. We made a reservation and were immediately seated upon our arrival. Our waiter took our beverage orders and returned with them quickly. Lelli's has a traditional dinner option or an Ala Carte choice. We decided to go the traditional route and suggest it highly. The traditional... More

In eternal pursuit of fine dining and a menu that suggests same, I was surprised and delighted by my enjoyment of this establishmentlast weekend. It was obvious that careful attention was dedicated not only to preparation, but the selection of vendors and cuts. Their attention to detail and superior service, in addition to enjoying fare not often found (or worse,... More

This location is actually the second incarnation of Lelli's, and it tends to retain the same old school vibe that Carl's Chophouse used to have. Certainly one of the most expensive dinners I've had, even more so than the Whitney, the Ponchatrain, or Carls. The food was good, cooked properly, just the way we asked, but what they're known for... More

The valet stole $400! I mistakenly left my purse on the passenger floor. It has my tip money from the week. I has counted it on the way to the restaurant, so I know exactly how much was there. When I went to deposit the money on Saturday morning, I noticed the missing twenties. We immediately contacted the restaurant and... More
