We had the Lemon pepper Shrimp and chicken, it was excellent. All of our dishes salads and desserts were great. Wonderful service and a three prince Jazz band also in the bar area- great atmosphere.

I forgot to leave a review in September when we dined here, but we’re still dreaming of Lilli’s! The food was exceptional & the wait staff was wonderful! We walked in after strolling downtown. We were a bit under-dressed in our shorts & t-shirts, but...we were welcomed in & taken great care of. We WILL be back next time we’re in town!More

Wonderful service and atmosphere. The Clam Chowder served only on Friday is the best. You will not be disappointed. Try the Salmon or Macaroon Flounder anytime. Treat yourself with donuts for dessert.

We came here for dinner for a date night. They had a small band with two people on piano and bass. We ordered a bottle of Terra D'Oro Petite Sirah and the Apricot Jalapeño Brie to start. The wine was very good and the Brie...was amazing! I order the the Creole Meatloaf and my wife had the Dirty Risotto. The meatloaf was fantastic and my wife liked her dish, but the rice was more like just dirty rice than actual risotto. Our server was fantastic and always on top of things. Overall, it was a very nice date night!More

What a great find! Cute, neighborhood restaurant with a pianist playing provided a lovely ambiance. Food was very good and the servings generous. Menu is Mediterranean with Texan & Cajun hints. Worth a visit if you find yourself Southside.

Very good food We ordered poblano burger, which was delicious and gets 5/5 stars! Friendly and helpful waitress. Only think I didn’t like was the place of our table, although we asked for something better, we were seated next to the kitchen.

I have gone to Lili's for years. Love their wide ranging menu. It's also a lovely atmosphere with a good range of food on their menu. My favorite in the past has been the Lili's burger, with the gorgonzola cheese and jalapeño bun. Normally delicious....The last time I went, I asked for the burger to be well done. The hamburger came and was rare. TOTALLY uncooked in the middle. They came out and apologized, agreed that it was rare, took it back and came back later with a new burger, after my companions had finished their meal. It was still not cooked in the middle. I ate about three bites of it and quit. Although the greek wedge was delicious. The bill came out with no adjustment whatsoever. Over $20 for a burger I couldn't eat. I felt like I had been robbed.More

Found this place while visiting Ft Worth. Server recommended the house burger, which comes with Gorgonzola. Add the Gorgonzola fries and a local draft beer. Next stop Paradise. Great staff, wonderful ambience, well deserving of its rank.

Birthday dinner for myself and son, party of 6. Absolutely wonderful food with menu options for all. Decent selection of wines at reasonable prices. Very friendly, efficient and attentive wait staff, especially our server Amanda. Magnolia Street is a great place in Ft.

We have been hunkered in & have not ventured out much in the 8 months of COVID. The restaurant was following all safety protocols plus added acrylic dividers between tables that are discreet & non-intrusive so we felt very safe on the patio. At Vance's...recommendation, my husband had the scallops with risotto & I had the lemon pepper chicken & shrimp. Both were delicious, ample portions & beautifully presented. Wine list made it easy to choose a good wine. Also had Uncle Ed's apple pie with ice cream for dessert. Even on the patio we could hear & enjoy the acoustic guitarist in the interior room which was a nice subtle background music without being too loud & we could still easily carry on a conversation. Many of the servers have been at Lili's a long time & it is refreshing to see & feel their welcome!More

We didn't make reservations when we went for lunch on a Saturday and didn't have to wait in line. We arrived at 12:30P, so that might have contributed to our luck getting seated immediately. But, they stayed pretty busy... More
