A great Greek restaurant with many of the dishes you would expect. Service is exceptional and they have a nice selection of Greek wines to go with your meal. Share your dishes in order to taste as much as you can. Will be back soon 

I really liked this place, my company had a happy hour here and the food was delicious, wine was ok, but the atmosphere was really what I liked the most. Planning to go back soon.

The amazing Brussels Sprouts were not the only wonderful dish I has at Ilili last night. We had several other appetizers and they were all excellent. We ordered so many starters that we never got to the main courses but I am sure they are good. We did save room for their Candy Bar desert and were glad we did it was delicious

The food here is simply Divine, I crave their dishes so often, nice intimate setting and dim lighting, ,great place for a date,tables are a bit close I have to admit and sometimes you can hear the conversation at the next table, I would recommend a few appetisers to share to get a taste and sample of their cuisine

You need to go to Turkey or Lebanon to sample authentic Middle Eastern food, but this restaurant isn't bad. Although our table for six wasn't nice service was good.
For two, I recommend recommend two or three appetizers and a single main course.
