Reliably WonderfulWhenever the timing works--and we try to make it work--we stop in Louisville, and we dine at Lilly's. We ate smart this time: two items from the top of the menu, a salad and another small plate, so that we'd have room for dessert. The staff know the menu--our young lady was a delight, though she couldn't help me decide between caramel cake (with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream) and roasted banana ice cream (with fudge sauce and peanut brittle); had to flip a coin. We'll be back as soon as we can.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMnew use for lilly'sHave always enjoyed our visits to lilly's, great food and service, changing menus, adaptability, somewhat similar to our visits to chez panisse but not as tense, laid back. This was our first time as a group with nine people, no problems, everyone enjoyed the fest, food and wines, timing was good. Recommend for groups now.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLily's BistroThis was an absolutely wonderful experience in dining. The food was divine and the service was excellent.

The king salmon we had was perfection. When I come back to Louisville, I will definitely dine here again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA perfect placeI chose Lilly's to have a "debriefing session" with my family after they threw me a surprise birthday party. I knew I made the right choice. It was perfect for reliving the evening. Quiet, yet, the food and service both were excellent. The atmosphere as ideal for the thank you lunch.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAn exceptional experience.An exceptional experience. My wife and I particularly enjoyed the roasted garlic appetizer, which we shared. I noticed several other tables doing the same thing. While dinner at Lilly's isn't cheap, the food is different from anything I've ever had. It is not stuffy at all - just relaxed and enjoyable.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLily's was featuring a pre-fixLily's was featuring a pre-fix menu from the Junior League of Louisville's Cookbook, Bluegrass Gatherings.

The food is beautifully executed and tastes sublime. Highly recommend the caramel cake!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe came to this restaurantWe came to this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and weren't disappointed. Vibrant neighborhood, great location and the food was outstanding. I had the cod special and they allowed me to substitute rice for a side of their ham and pea risotto, which was awesome. Drinks were really good too. If you are a foodie or are looking for a romantic spot or a quiet Girls' Night Out, this is a wonderful spot.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVisiting Louisville.

However, the veal scallopini entree was good, but nothing special. Overall a great restaurant that we would visit the next time in Louisville.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous! The service wasFabulous!
