Nice menu for Mother's Day. Had a 2 pm reservation. We were taken on time, greeted promptly by our waiter. Appetizers, entrees, and deserts were excellent. The restaurant was busy but they appeared to have enough help and all the waitstaff were very attentive to their tables. It was a wonderful meal...thank-you!

Three girlfriends went for lunch. Surprisingly it was quite empty. But I think it is because most people think of it as a dinner place. The selections are "different" and that of a very upscale restaurant. Prices are definitely high but not over what you would expect for the presentations and great food. The restaurant itself is beautiful inside and... More

Quiet setting on the 2nd floor of the business building. The Deviled Eggs were a great appetizer. The main course was excellent, followed by a delicious dessert.

We are staying at a bed and breakfast in the area and decided on Lilly's tonight. We had Adam as our waiter. He was awesome. My husband and I both had a salad and steak. His came with truffle Mac and cheese and mine came with garlic French fries. We had a piece of cheese cake with banana fosters for... More

A small group of women went here for lunch with reservations - the good kind, not the bad kind. We ordered different things from the menu, and all of our food was delicious. Even more striking than that was the presentation. Each dish came out looking like a work of art. We oohed and aahed over each other's food before... More

I did not find this place to be very classy. The host and servers were indifferent to our needs. No welcoming smile, didn’t ask how everything was, didn’t seem to want to please us. In fact, the staff acted like they were doing us a favor by taking our order. This was not a happy, positive, enjoyable experience. Although the... More

I used to love this place. They really seem to not even care about the food or service anymore. The appearance of wait staff at your table is pitiful, they run out of menu items at 6 pm, we weren't offered the dessert tray, & there were only 4 other occupied tables during the last visit. I hope that the... More
