Good Steak but very $$$$$

The wait staff wear black suits, ties and white shirts, some looking a bit "sloppy". A bit of a older feeling decor, heavy, dark wood, large mirrors, and tiered glass chandeliers.

Greeted with accurate reservations. Seated promptly. Server was helpful, courteous, kind and did not rush us as requested. The food was outstanding. I had the veal with everything...antipasto plate, soup, salad, spaghetti Bolognese, main dish and spumoni. It is a bit pricey...but it was great. I definitely would go back!

Lelli's looks like something from long ago and far away, with a formally-dressed waitstaff and the kind of high-backed leather banquettes you'd see in Frank Sinatra movies. The menu is in the same spirit. All the old favorites -- the VERY old favorites -- presented with breathless enthusiasm. But the food isn't bad at all - in fact it's quite... More

Not cheap, but never disappointed. The prime beef is always cooked to perfection. Make sure to add the Lelli's addition to your meal. It will make you think you are in an old Italian movie eating with the "boss". My husband and son always beg me to go there when where are choosing special celebration meals. Been going since 2002.

Steaks are great, can't get them anywhere else as tender as this. Looking forward to another special night out...

This is a restaurant from days gone by. The wait staff wear black suits, ties and white shirts! You don't see that everyday. Very nice older feeling decor, heavy, nice dark wood, large mirrors, and tiered glass chandeliers. We got the traditional dinners as opposed to the ala carte, and that would really have been enough food. You get a... More

Both of us got sick in two hours. Filet taste nasty. Hate to say this, long horn has better filet. 14 dollar shrimp has 4 small size shrimp. Read fine print before buy Groupon. If you want to spend money, go to Ruth's Chris, Capital grill or Mortons.

We went because I had a $60 Groupon and it, with tip, it still ended up costing us $90+ (including what we paid for the Groupon). We each only had one glass of the house wine. We were told one person had to order from the "traditional" menu, meaning my husband's lamb chop dinner was $60. It came with a... More
