We went with friends one evening and I had the special, Butternut Squash Ravioli with pesto and pureed parsnip. My husband had the Short Rib Ragu.

Love, love and love. I ordered the chicken parm and hubby ordered the Meatball platter. From the apps we ordered to the main meal it was all so wonderful. Polite staff and great atmosphere. Will return.

We were warmly welcomed at LIE even without a reservation. The food was outstanding, servings were generous, and the service was personal and attentive. Would definitely visit again when next in Midland.

My husband and I went for dinner. He had the veal which was sourced locally and was very tender. I had the lamb - loved the "crusty" seasoning rub. I asked for mint sauce - waiter said they did not have any BUT when my meal arrived the chef had made some for me from scratch! now that is service.
