My hostess recommended this restaurant and I'm glad she did. They have an open kitchen so its really fun to sit at the bar and watch the chefs. It's a little loud. The chicken liver mousse was smooth and delicious - the popcorn was odd but not bad. The pasta was excellent.

There's are many reasons why Tilia get 4.5 out of 5 stars on Trip Advisor. The service was amazing. I was surprised by the attention to detail. From the top down, and the bottom up, they work as a cohesive team. The food is wonderful. Out of the ordinary choices, thoughtful menu. Come here for a raucous, good time. Be... More

I don't know where to start... I specifically asked about seating for 14 with 6 children and they totally blew the time quoted. Then it started raining while we huddled out front. THIS IS NOT A PLACE TO TAKE KIDS!!! Our server was as lost as lost gets. Had no clue. We did have some wine and beer but the... More

The restaurant is small, loud and pretentious. Portions are tiny and swimming in bizarre concoctions of ingredients. The calamari was undercooked and surrounded by a sea of squid ink, which stained fingers and clothes.I found a hair in my chicken dish. The waiter proceeded to tell me it was likely so-and-so's hair because she has long blonde hair -- which... More

Well, mediocre doesn't quite describe the setting. It's really sort of grungy, but apparently people don't mind because they still flock to Tilia for the food. Our group of four had dinner at Tilia on March 23, 2011, and nothing has changed since then, particularly the fabric on the chairs. That's the grunge part. When I gripped the table to... More

My wife and I visited here for dinner and it was absolutely fantastic. Dessert menu is small and nothing to write home about but the appetizers and mains were great! Will definitely be back

This was my first meal at Tilia, which came highly recommended by a few friends. Don't be fooled because Tilia is very understated (you have to look carefully for the sign on the front door), the staff is young and the dress code is very casual. But our meal was unique and very, very good and their service (at least... More

We have been coming here regularly and we always order the cheese burger as it is one of the best on town. Our server recommended the Fish Sandwich to which my GF and I replied thanks but we don't eat fish. Our server was confident that we will LOVE it so we listened and ordered one burger and one fish...

My friend and I went for lunch. I ordered the spinach salad and she asked if she could have 1/2 of the arugula salad and 1/2 of the poor man's lobster roll (aka shrimp). The server said "yes" to everything. My salad was ok, the soft boiled egg was not soft enough and the dressing was heavy but it still... More

I am only going to write this review that doesn't really say much because there is a 100 word minimum, but know that this place is crazy good.
