Wowza, the Farmer Burger on a Jalapeno Bun with Gorgonzola Fries was Heaven in my mouth! Amazing combo of flavors and the burger was cooked to perfection. The staff was very friendly and the inside was very charming. I'll most definitely be going back to try more things on the menu. There was a wait even after the normal lunch... More

We chose them for our rehearsal dinner. It was perfect. They have a large group setting a couple of doors down from the bistro that is charming and hip. Of course, we ate at the Bistro a couple of times prior to our event to make sure the food would not disappoint. It was fabulous! We had the ribeye with... More

My husband and I had popped in here one evening without a reservation, sat at the bar and had a great meal. While we were entertaining friends and family for the holidays, we knew we wanted to try this one again. So glad we did! We called for a same day reservation and got our requested time easily, waited maybe... More

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...

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
