Been there for special occasions and "no" occasions. Each and every time, the food has been superb. It is definitely a fine-dining establishment, yet it does not have a strict dress code - you are made to feel as welcome wearing jeans and dressy shirt or dressed for a night on the town. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and do... More

Wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary. Our server (Lauren) was very sweet, and when she found out we were celebrating our anniversary she brought out our desserts with little candles in them. The food was excellent and very creative

My wife and I visit this area at least once annually, if not more often. When we are looking for a hi end place which has excellent food, amazing romantic ambiance, (views at sundown not to be missed), and superb service we go to Lily's on Main. We have probably been there 8-10 times and never been disappointed. While its... More

I've been patronizing Lily's-on-Main ever since they opened. I worked for an unrelated business headquartered in, and owner of, the same building in which Lily's is located. I've had business lunches, Sunday brunch, and many dinners at Lily's a countless number of times, and have never been disappointed. I personally know the owner, and can vouch for his integrity and...

What a great space! Too bad the rest of our experience didn't live up to our surroundings. I had heard so many good things about this restaurant. Maybe it was an off night. Let's be charitable and say the service resulted in a leisurely dining experience. The short ribs were good, the carrot was rock hard and whoever plated should... More

I did not go there for NYE this year but went previously and it was wonderful. Still talk about the experience and how good the food was. The cost was a little pricey though.

Be aware: They have a "no cell phone" rule! The food was just okay in my opinion, but service was great. Was slightly over-priced, but it had a very nice feel to it.

After having great meals here in the past, we decided to have our New Years Eve dinner at Lily's. We arrived 10 minutes early and were promptly seated, after that, things seemed to go downhill. Unbeknownst to us, there was a prix fix menu for $65 per person...fair enough I suppose, it was New Years Eve. Everything from the drinks... More

With lots of advance notice, Lily's totally failed to provide even a decent meal to our group of 25. They assigned only one waitress, who is excellent but not a miracle-maker. Kitchen staff apparently was not increased to handle our group and about 25 others in restaurant. Our orders were taken about an hour after arrival, and our meals were... More
