Great food, tucked away!

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

Home made linguine and clam sauce was excellent. This restaurant is a hidden gem. Very good food and service.

Somewhat new to the area, wife and I have been trying a number of local restaurants, and recently stopped at Lillian's on a Friday evening. The food, drinks and service were wonderful - and met Lillian as we left. We'll definitely be back!

How often does the owner seat you and deliver your meal with pride? Well, Lilian does because she knows her food is that good! Check out their menu. It is varied and creative.

I typically do not blog and review meals even after a bad experience, but I could not resist this time. We went to this restaurant for my mother's birthday, and we were the first people in the restaurant dining area at 5:45 PM. We had five adults and one child. The remainder of the dining room filled up over the... More

My wife and I have visited now twice in the past few months and both times we were very impressed with the food, wait service and overall dining experience. They always seem to make time for us even though we have shown up twice without reservations and their dining rooms were very full. Just a great time and some very... More

We love this restaurant, had an excellent meat there on a Friday night, the service and food could not have been better. Lillian greeted us warmly at the bar, I had Lillian;s chicken for dinner and my husband had the lasagna, the portions are quite generous and we enjoyed our meals very much. The bread is homemade, as are the... More
