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

The food was good. The dining room we were seated in was freezing. We heard others complain about how cold it was and quite a few ppl did not take off their winter coats and scarves. Our server was running around with his head cut off, it felt like he had too many tables. Not at all what we had... More

we walked in without knowing what this place really was, the service was good, looks old fashioned, and food was nice. A little pricey but so nice to find the gem, I went for work but will definitely want to go back for our date night

My husband took me here for my birthday and I'm glad he did. The food and service was great. The only bad thing I can say is I asked for my steak to be cooked medium well but it was cooked well. Not a big issue. It still was good. Will definitely go back again.

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
