4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014 NEW credit card Amex Card Member Review

I have eaten both lunch & dinner dozens of times but on this Thursday night we decided to belly up to the bar. We had a bottle of Lang Twins Zin $32 & a hot serving of gooey gorgonzola fries & listened to the pianist tinkling in the background.

Lili's has pretty much good everything from the food, to the atmosphere, to the coffee. Normally it it's the gogonzola fries that are calling my name throughout the week. If you want to relax in cool atmosphere and sip on some delicious coffee, visit with friends,and have some yummy food Lili's is the place to be. It's a lovable restaurant!

Love many places on Magnolia in Fort Worth, but Lili's is my new found favorite. Their wine list is decent and reasonably priced, food was outstanding, and service excellent. I ate the calamari and scallop appetizer as my dinner and it was more than enough food. Very very good! With a short wait, we were able to dine outdoors and... More

This place gets 5 stars accross the board. Food, atmosphere, service were all great. They had a jazz band on the night I was there and really enjoyed that. Looking forward to going back. Had the chicken with tamale stuffing. YUM.

We went to Lili's because it was ranked highly. I normally research restaurants thoroughly but didn't have the time in this case. That was a major mistake. I must say that the food and service were good but the pressure to hurry up and leave after our meal was unacceptable for a restaurant in this price range -- I don't... More

Lili's stays top on my list when someone says "where would you like to eat" The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is so comfortable and the service is great. They have a loyal following but I always feel like it matters that I have chosen to eat at Lili's. I also love the fact that the menu selection works for... More

Our daughter recommended Lili's Bistro to us as a place to enjoy a wonderful dinner as a part of a night out. She was more than right on the mark! The atmosphere is an interesting mix of classy and relaxed. The food was superb and amazingly done. The service is best described as attentive without being annoying. I would suggest... More

Have had lunch numerous times at Lili's. It's a great place to go with friends. Service is always attentive but not intrusive. I wasn't sure about a beer recommended so our server was quick to provide a sample. Just went there this week, my friends shared a muffuletta and enjoyed every crumb. I had the adult grilled cheese-very adult, very... More
