“Quick snack before Wicked”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

On our way to Gershwin Theatre to see Wicked, we stopped at Lillies's (I had read reviews on TA so wanted to see it)

We had no reservation but the hostess (who turned out to be Scottish too!) suggested we sit at the bar. We ordered Nachos to share for two of us and the other had burger and fries. The portions were huge and we struggled to finish but the food was lovely.

The barman was friendly, he came from Serbia, and was very interested in our upcoming referendum for Scottish Independence! It was somewhat amusing to be in our first bar in NYC, chatting to a Serbian about Scottish Independence.

Loved the décor and the feel of the place.

“Can't Go Wrong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

We ate here after a recommendation from a waiter from a bar on 49th Street. The restaurant is beautiful and the food is great. Staff was wonderful and accommodating as we did not have a reservation but they found a table for us. Prices were very reasonable for the food - as always in NYC liquor is expensive.

“Great meal before a matinee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Great location and great ambiance. Had the eggs bene for lunch and it did not disappoint. Came with a glass of wine or Bloody Mary for $16. A second drink did cost $10 though which was a bit of a shock. I learned my lesson so when we returned for the lunch special at $14 I had just the one. I had the burger which was excellent. My wife had had the warm goat cheese salade which was excellent.

“Great Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

Starter and drinks made for a special Saturday night treat. The decor is amazing, food tasted great and the service spot on. We loved the pulled pork French fries and the drinks were generous and well done. We will make Lillie's a traditional stop on our visits to NYC.
