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

My friend brought me here for my birthday lunch. The burger was good, however our waiter could have used a huge attitude adjustment!!! He slammed our plate down and walked off and did the same when he brought the bill. Never were we asked if we wanted anything else or if everything was ok. I can't understand a restaurant as... More

First time I ever picked a restaurant solely on TripAdvisor reviews. Nice evening, so we opted to eat outside - tough to do in Tx in the summer. Really enjoyed the food even though the menu on the internet was out dated. Lots of missed steps by server - brought food before the flatware, dropped the replacement flatware, had to... More

Food is always interesting. Soft jazz for evening entertainment. Only problem is no liquor license - only beer and wine. Staff is friendly. Location always hopping!

Lili's is located in an area of Fort Worth where there are a lot of up and coming restaurants. Lili's Bistro is an attractive & quaint place and the food is absolutely DELICIOUS. I met my sister at Lili's Bistro for lunch recently. We sat outside underneath the front porch awning, which has several ceiling fans attached to it, therefore,... More

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!
