This was our choice to celebrate a birthday in our family. The service was attentive and the food was excellent. I am a big fan of fried oysters and these melted in my mouth. This is a great place for a leisurely meal; the service was well paced and we had time to chat and enjoy our time together.

Great location and a special little place with great food and service. Not your typical chain restaurant.

Superb dining establishment in Louisville. This is in my top 3 fave places to dine in the Ville (maybe my top 2). The menu is creative, always surprising, prepared to perfection. I like it for lunch and dinner. My only complaint would be some of the servers I have had here seem a bit arrogant, snooty. Unfortunately, that's what I think of when I think of Lilly's, sometimes I don't go there because I just want to be around more positive, happy people...

So, I'd heard many good things about this restaurant. Being on Bardstown Rd, with alot of nearby competition, I was excited to dine here. We went last night for my birthday dinner.
The food itself was fine - although you have SO many choices on that street that I didn't find the food to be esceptional. It was good, prices were reasonable for what we ordered. I will not be adding to my list of "go-to" places however, nor would I bring clients there to dine.
Our waiter was excellent - he was not obstrusive, was helpful about the menu choices, etc.
I would have to agree with Liz W's description - the place is totally outdated.....it smelled old. It totally reminded me of a place that was really great in the 90's and there's defintely a crowd there that hasnt let it go.....but in all seriousness, if they want to compete - and there is a lot of competition, they are going to have to do something (starting with the interior) to change things up a bit. While it was clean, its dark and drab.

Quick and pleasant service. Nice portions. We each had a different item, fish , pork and chicken. We all raved about dish and shared a bite or two. Worth a second visit
