Nice surprise!

Found this restaurant and were we surprised. The menu was great and our server, Dmitry was terrific. The 3 of us enjoyed the borscht. I had a grouper special served on a bed of spinach with tomatoes and roasted peppers. The fish was flavorful and perfectly cooked. My husband's combo platter of... read more

What happens when you don't answer the phone? People eventually stop calling. We ate at Lillians once before, it was good though they aren't very friendly at all. Tonight I tried to call for take out, Called once, no answer, Called again, no answer, Called again, no answer let it ring 25 times, nothing. Called the operator, asked if they... More

I stopped in here for lunch yesterday, as my wife (who hails from a Ukrainian background) was curious about it and wanted to try it. She wasn't with me yesterday, but I thought I'd try it out, and I was quite glad that I did. Lillian's is an interesting place in that it serves both Italian and Ukrainian dishes. Since... More

My husband and I had lunch at Lillian's on a Saturday. The whole experience was wonderful! The waitress was very friendly and courteous. I had the Borscht and my husband had the chicken vegetable soup. They were both outstanding. I chose the beef tenderloin panini and the perogies. The perogies were, as I said, pillows of perfection! They just melted... More

quiet, good food, but not an extensive menu. in the few times I've been there the wait staff is adequate, but not outgoing and friendly. They have a small ethnic menu, but I'd like to see a bigger selection.

Ate at Lillian's on a Friday Night. Made a reservation, but didn't really need one. It wasn't overly busy. The Ukrainian dishes were very authentic and delicious. The other food was also pretty good and definitely worth the money. Will be going back soon to try some other dishes

We ate at Lillian's and had a great experience! The restaurant is definitely tucked away in the plaza but we're glad we found it. Our server was wonderful and so was the food. Highlights were the delicious rolls and pierogies. We will definitely be back.

A recent dinner here was quite disappointing. At the suggestion of the waitress I ordered Chicken French -- a Rochester favorite. It was the worst Chicken French that I have had; although the chicken was tender and moist the egg batter was not even browned or crisp and the sauce had no flavor at all of the requisite lemon and...

Our party of 6 had a delightful time in a place none of us knew about. My Chicken Napoli was outstanding and the seafood bisque was the best I've had. Prices were very reasonable for the food quality. Service a little slow due to a missing cook for the evening, but we managed. Our server Constantine was attentive, friendly, and... More

My wife and I went over to Lillian's the other night and had a really good meal. I was sort of expecting to not like it but I was pleasantly surprised. Is it the nicest place or best place in the area? No...but it is a solid choice for an alternative place on the list of local eateries. Even the... More
