There is fancier food at fancier prices, but it's very hard to beat the quality and price at this comfortable sit down restaurant. There are many very good and expensive restaurants in Fort Worth, but this is my favorite for relaxing and enjoying a meal with friends. Another good thing is if you go, and it's full, there are several... More

Every time I go back to DFW area, I stop in for dinner at Lili's Bistro in Ft. Worth. Some great changes have happened. Vance Martin expanded the space to include a beautiful bar with more seating plus a wonderful jazz band. The ambiance, food, service and overall atmosphere are top notch. Lili's is highly recommended. A very diverse menu... More

We have been to Lili's several times when coming to visit our daughter at TCU . Our meal last night was once again great! I had the flounder and my husband had the rack of lamb. I had the spinach salad before dinner, it was very good. We made a reservation to sit in the bar area so we could... More

It's not often that I find a place where 10 of 10 times I do not have a bad meal/experience. I might be jinxing myself, but we have probably dined here 25 times and have never had anything less than excellent. The house burger is my favorite in town (trust me on this). Lately the chicken and etouffee has been... More

My mom and I stopped here before heading over to TCU. The place was very cozy with a nice jazzy vibe to it. The food and service were both amazing! I definitely would recommend this spot for an affordable and satisfying meal.

Every visit to Lili's has been delicious and different, so much so that we keep going back. From the hamburgers to the fish, everything we have ordered is outstanding, including the specials. For desert, the donuts can't be beat.

While visiting my son in Fort Worth we found Lili's and decided to give it a try. I looked at their reviews and it was mentioned they had a limited beer and wine selection. Well thats not what I found...upon walking in I found they had one of my favorite Czech beers, Staropramen, on tap..we were seated near the piano,... More

This visit, I tried the Lamb Pita's. As always, the plate presentation was impressive. The quality and taste was a 9 out of 10. Lili's is always adding new items to their lunch menu to keep it fresh. My business clients are always impressed with the service and uniqueness of the Bistro. Can't go wrong eating here, lunch or dinner.

With colleagues looking for lunch after arriving in Fort Worth. On a tip from another notable restaurant whose kitchen closed too early for us to have lunch after 2pm, we chose Lili's. It bills itself as "unpretentious global cuisine," which would normally have me screaming PRETENTIOUS but we found the atmosphere was disarmingly casual, the service efficient, friendly and low-key...

Description
Unpretentious Global Cuisine Fast paced lunch featuring an array of salads, grilled sandwiches, almost famous burgers and several grilled specialties to chose from. The pace slows a bit at dinner and the environment elevates focusing on our wine bar, separate dinner menu, nightly specials and live music every evening...And don't forget to order Lili's house made Doughnuts and Coffee!
