My wife and I had an excellent meal here. We both had the filets and they prepared it perfectly. Julie was our server and she was great! We are here for three days and are glad to have this to go to.

We come to Lelli's a couple of times a year, and we always enjoy the meal and experience. We had the Lelli's classic meal, which includes an anti-pasta spread, soup (the best minestrone you can find!), a salad, spaghetti, your main meal, then a spumoni or lemon ice dessert. We had their petite fillet for the main meal, which is... More

Enjoyed and evening with my wife at Lelli's. The service was great and food very tasty. It's old style fine dinning restaurant. Nice place for a date. Moderately priced although you get a lot of food. We'll worth it.

Lelli's is one of our favorite restaurants for a nice meal, whether it is for lunch or dinner. Their filet mignon is the best anywhere. For lunch, the chicken picatta is delicious and is served with soup or salad and either spaghetti or creamed spinach. It may be a little pricey to some, but you receive a complete and filling...

Kelli's is celebrating 75 years in business, so they must have been doing something right. We have dined here before and never been disappointed, so we were happy when our daughter gave her a father a groupon. This visit was slightly different.while the food was still good, it appeared to me the portions were smaller and the plates were new.... More

Purchased a Groupon for the Auburn Hills location. After several years away from Michigan, and having eaten many times at the Detroit location, I was really looking forward to seeing the new place. I took a friend. The atmosphere is very comfortable. Be prepared for a long meal. It took us two hours to be fully served. That wasn't so... More

We live near Lelli's, so go several times a year. The food is good, but nothing especially creative. Standard steaks, chops, pasta dishes as expected. We generally enjoy the food, but the service can be frustrating. They have those kind of waiters who can act like you are just bothering them. Last time we went for our son's birthday, the... More

My husband & I have been to this restaurant 4 times now and our experiences have been generally good in 3 of the 4 visits. It seems that the biggest problems w/ this place are it's management & staffing. The manager has been rude every time I've called for a reservation. Also, even though I've always had a reservation, I... More

My wife and I went here for dinner last night. After waiting 45 minutes for a seat we were seated in a booth and waited. We watched as other people were seated, receiving service quickly, water glasses filled, bread baskets presented and we waited. Finally a waiter came and gave us or menu's & he said he'd be right back.... More

I've been going to Lelli's for years and although I've tried a few other items on the menu, nothing compares to the filet with zip sauce. I will admit that the service has been a little hit or miss sometimes, but not enough to over shadow the amazing meal. Dinner is a 7-8 coarse meal and never disappoints me. The... More
