A bit noisy, but we were there on a busy night. The food was outstanding, and service prompt, even though we had a party of 80+ people. They know how to handle a group.

For first timers, the fillet mignon is a must. I've never had a bad experience and all of the food is flavorful with great presentation. Not quite the same atmosphere as the original location when it was in downtown Detroit but you certainly need to go! Expect dinner for 2 (without drinks) to run about $60 on average.

A true fine dining establishment. While we are unable to frequent fine dining establishments, we have been to over a dozen or so over the years (not all reviewed, sorry) and Lelli's follows the blue print to a tee.

White linen table cloths and napkins. Classy decor and style, everyone of the employees is dressed upscale (Host in 3 pc. suit, service people in Tux or black pants, vest, and bow tie)..

The food is very tasty, even more so after a glass of wine (of which they have a 2 page menu to select from). The bring out, in order, at whatever pace you ask for, bread, antipasta plate (a true antipasta plate), salad, soup, pasta, entree, spimoni dessert.

The cost of the full treatment for most of the meals is between $38 to $52 (steaks). You can get a nice Michigan bottle of wine for $20 (in true fine dining fashion, they pour, not you) whereas Martini's will run you $13. So, this is not for the budget conscious. However, if you want a romantic night out or to be pampered at dinner, Lelli's is it.

good food, but way too much of it. Place is also pretty dated. Fantastic eggplant parm though. Full priced and not the best atmosphere. I think the place needs a refresh but its been around for a long time and I'm sure people appreciate it the way it is.

The "6 course meal" was gross. They brought course after course of mediocre food... which I ate to be polite.... and then was too full to enjoy my entree. Order ala carte unless you weigh over 400lbs.
