    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 2/14/2013
    My husband and i went to Lira on Valentine's day for dinner. Although they had a special Valentine's menu, they still offered their regular menu as well. They don't have a large menu, but they offer smaller size versions of the dishes as well as regular size, which is perfect if you want to try a few things or just can't decide what to have. The food is excellent and reasonably priced, they have an extensive wine list and their staff are very attentive, we will definitely be back.

    Took my girlfriend here for our 1 year anniversary on New Year's Eve. Everything was great. Food was awesome, ambiance was great, and the prices weren't too bad. I love the choice between Tapas style plates or traditional main course dishes. The portions are large and satisfying. I ordered soup that they forgot about so they gave it to me on the house! At the end they asked us if we would move to the bar (we were done anyway) and gave us a free dessert! I'm a local so I'm definitely looking forward to going back again

    This was our first and last time to eat there. To start, two items we ordered from the menu were not available. Then they had the nerve to charge us $3.00 for bread. COME ON! Menu is $$$ for the fair at best food. The waitress was excellent and if I were her I would move on because I don't think the restaurtant will make it. I can not recommend this place to anyone.

    Food was excellent. However, very difficult to talk to someone in person via phone. They don't ever answer their phone or return calls. Major complaint when you want to plan something special at the restaurant.

    The food was amazing. Especially the Brie Cheese Purses! The portions on some of the foos items are small. The martinis are very strong. I could not finish mine because it tasted like pure alcohol. I could not taste any fruity in it.

    I've been wanting to try this place since I first saw it. It's a beautiful old bank building and they even have the old safe as a private room (12 persons max). The fondue was actually fondue, not just cheese dip you find at some places, and the pumpkin walnut cheesecake was amazing! I would steer you away from the non-fried perogies though, not worth the calories in my book. The server was fun, knew the menu well and was very nice.

    This is the third time I've been to Lira and I still love it. I went with my boyfriend and both of our parents. We all had a great time, but my boyfriend and I selected Lira because their service is usually quick--it was not that evening. It took the six of us 2.5 hours to dine, but a little longer because there was a mistake with our check. The waitress was really sweet and helpful, but she had a huge table in the center of the restaurant with at least 12 people. While I understand why the evening took so long and I enjoyed the family time, I was not expecting our drinks, appetizers, food, and dessert to take as long as they did. I still love Lira and will go back because that night was a-typical.

    Food was mediocre at best. Took almost 45 minutes to get any food. No bread or at least bring out the salad. Our waitress pretty much delivered food to our table but nothing more than that. We had to ask for water refills more than once. Wait staff and management seen arguing several times. Uncomfortable...

    The food was very good, however, the service was very poor. Our waitress only came over to our table three times during dinner and she didn't even serve us our meals. I watched as our food sat on a serving tray 6 feet from us for almost 5 minutes (getting cold)...the person expediting the meals had to serve us. The food was very good, however, the poor service was unacceptable.

    Lira is my first restaurant of choice when I need to make dinner reservations for business meetings. I try to reserve the Vault for my executives, fore it is a private room, where business can be descussed if need be. I would recommend Lira to my friends and family as well.

    The 6 of us went there to celebrate a birthday, and from beginning to end it was GREAT!!! Our server Kristen was FABULOUS, she was very knowledgeable of the bar and food, she took time to answer all our questions and was very patient with us, never did we feel rushed. The food was PHENOMENAL, the portions were HUGE the beef brisket is superb and the trio of dips for an appetizer was scrumptious (these are the 2 items I personally tasted)!! Everything the 6 of us order was wonderful, it was nothing but good remarks during our visit!! No complaints from us and definitely we will be back!!! My husband has already decided what he'll order on our next "2" visits :)

    The overall experience was "indifference" at best for our party of 6. The staff seemed to be sitting around and our waitress was lacking in the basic of skills, neither welcoming or engaging. We had to ask and wait for even the basics like our drink overs and the rest of our food order. The service was incredibly slow, right down to the check. The food was fine. Note that the small bites were not exactly a meal. The menu was unique. I would recommend the mussels but not the chicken, pasta dish (pretty typical) Our check was over $135.00 and we went away kind of hungry.

    Lovely atmosphere, great food, and interesting specials. The menu allows for ordering small portions, tapas style, or family size portions. This makes it a great spot for either a great simple meal for 2 or a fun night out with a large group. I'll definitely visit again.

    Lira is confused on whether it is a tapas restaurant or a normal entree restaurant. They are also searching for a general manager replacement and their performance was a bit below par. We ordered the prime rib which was so overcooked it had to be returned. The chef then substituted the filet tips cooked correctly which were delicious. Otherwise the brie purses, risotto, polenta, and tilapia tapas were fine. Lisa provided good service.

    Love Lira! I made reservations for my boyfriend and I last Saturday. Our table was ready for us when we arrived. No wait. We took previous reviewers' advice and ordered a few small dishes. And I'm glad we did! The fondue was great! Very cheesy and my boyfriend loved the roasted potatoes that accompanied it (though I preferred the bread and apples). He was adamant about ordering it the next time we go. We also tried the fried poblano polenta and the fish and chips. Polenta was perfect! Well-seasoned and sauced, and crunchy! The fish and chips were a bit too fishy for us and the accompanying sauce wasn't anything special, but the chips were crunchy and fried to perfection. Can't wait to go back and try more!

    Lira has a fun selection of entrees that can be ordered as a collection of smaller tapas-style plates or large family-style platters, as well as interesting appetizers and good "traditional" entrees. The menu has a variety of choices, so while not everyone will like everything there is something for everyone. Risotto cakes are among my favorite, while the Hungarian meatballs were slightly dry. I will go there again, both for a small brunch and a large dinner.

    We have been to Lira previously and really have enjoyed our experience there. However, this past Saturday evening was an exception. They had 2 large parties (one had at least 30 people in it) and the kitchen was too small to handle the amount of food orders in my opinion. We waited almost an hour for our salads and when the entrees finally arrived my husband's fish was cold. It had obviously been sitting somewhere. the server offered to take it back and put it in the microwave! You do not microwave fish!!! Gave us dessert for free but the damage had already been done.
