Nice restaurant in the Garden district. Cozier than some of the larger restaurants we tried. I started with a cold crab and avocado soup. I wish I had ordered a second one for my main course. It was so delicious - one of the culinary highlights of my 5 day visit to New Orleans. Cab ride if you are staying... More

If you are longing for a special New Orleans experience, where you can enjoy a superb meal in a charming place, get yourself over to Lilette! This is the second time I have visited as a tourist, and it consistently serves wonderful food by an attentive (but not obtrusive) staff. Really enjoy the small plates: like the Hearts of Palm...

Lilette was a charming, candlit dinner spot. We had dinner here with co-workers. They had a nice menu, wonderful wait service and a nice wine menu. This was a good pick!

Great everthing, atmosphere, service and FOOD. Nice change form being in the quarter. There's a nice bar next door to before or after dinner. I had the duck and it was excellent. Is it expensive? Yes, but are good restaurants usually expensive?

In the garden district which is just a ten dollar can ride out of the French quarter. The lady at the table next to me was in town for a vacation and came three times... More

We stayed in New Orleans for just a few days, for me?, that's just torture, with so many restaurants to go, so many dishes to try ! I didn't want to make any mistakes when choosing what to eat. I didn't! We went to Lilette and I 'm telling you, from the bread to the coffee, everything was delicious. We... More

Great service. Wonderful and unusual cocktails and good selection on the wine and beer list. The food was amazing - though by the gulf of Mexico I ventured to try the waitresses recommendation of beef short ribs - tender, melt in your mouth beef with delicious side dishes and wonderful coffee.

Went there with two couples for dinner. Excellent service, very good and eclectic wine list, but the food was to die for. I had the gnocchi to start and the hangar steak. My wife had the beef cheeks, I also tasted the crab legs appetizer which was perfect. One of my favorite places in NOLA
