My wife and I stumbled across this restaurant when we couldn't get in to Nonna Tata across the street. Well worth finding. Everything we had was simply amazing. We had two starters - apricot and jalapeño brie, as well the tzatziki medley. Each popped with flavor and we really enjoyed both. For dinner we shared the chicken stuffed with cornbread.... More

My wife has eaten at Lili's with friends before and has really enjoyed it but this was my first experience. We joined some friends there on Saturday (11/1) for dinner and I must say it made for a very memorable evening. (Reservations strongly suggested -- they are very busy.) Our friends both had the BBQ Salmon special for the evening,... More

I have been dining at Lili's since 2004 and it is hands down my favorite restaurant in Fort Worth. Vance Martin is always there and remembers his diners by name. The menu, cuisine and service are always consistantly excellent. The atmosphere is charming creates the perfect dining aesthetics .

On a recent business trip to Ft. worth, we stumbled across this gem. We were only in town 4 days and chose to eat there twice. Our lunch consisted of the best turkey burger I have ever had with out of this world Gorgonzola fries!! Our dinner the next night consisted of the seafood trio, chicken & étouffée topped off... More

We loved our meal at Lili's! We came with friends for dinner on a Friday night. We had no reservation, so we had to wait a bit. We sat at the bar until our table was ready and were able to order appetizers. The Gorgonzola fries were delicious! Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Make reservations if you can!

After many lunches we have tried almost every sandwich on the menu and each one is better than the last. So many great choices. I love the Gorgonzola fries and my husband prefers the house wedge salad. Both great but you can't get Gorgonzola fries anywhere else and they are so amazing. Great service every single time, fresh tea -... More

My wife and I had a GREAT meal last night. A very well run business. Between Vance, Pat or Manny the evening management is responsive and friendly. Pat loves to smoke cheeses and to make tasty specials. Had the best tenderloin with pear and fingerling potatoes. Can wait to see what the special will be next week

We opted not to eat at a local bar where friends were meeting for a Birthday Surprise, and came upon Lili's. We had heard of it before, but had not tried it. Glad we stopped in for dinner! I had the Smokey Stuffed Chicken and my wife had the Tomato Tart. As we generally do, we sampled each other's meal... More

Ate here twice on my last trip to Fort Worth. Both were lunches. Service again was well within acceptable boundaries but the off-beat personalities of the servers are evident. They have a creative, delicious menu and the lunch prices are most reasonable! Dinner last time was also delicious, but pricey. I had salads of some variety both times (it was... More
