Great food & great service! We should've made reservations for a Sat night, but the 45 min wait was worth it. My wife and I have now eaten here 2x with the most recent bringing another couple. We all enjoyed our food (and shared tastes so we can think about ordering something diff next time!). This quaint little joint is... More

Tomato tart us out of this world for dinner and the Gorgonzola Fries are amazing at lunch. You can't go wrong - my only complaint is that they don't have more seating, but if they were bigger the food might not be so outstanding. Love love love!

I went here this week for lunch with a group of girlfriends. The food portions were large but we had to wait forever (over 15 minutes) just to place our order. We were a table of 6. At the time, there were only four other tables that were seated. Our waiter continued to take orders from tables of two that... More

My wife and I went here for Valentine's Day almost 2 years ago and we had such a wonderful experience. Recently, though, our visit was quite a step back. First off, although our waiter was a nice guy, he was very hard to hear - probably a combination of his soft voice and being seated near a bustling kitchen. Add... More

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 .
