Diner Reviews
  • "Miss Lily's is an amazing restaurant. Very good food. We were 5 people and ordered 5 different entrees and they all tasted magnificent. The people working there are laid back and very serviceminded. The music was loud, but good. Great place allover."

  • "I always stop into Miss Lily's when I'm in NYC. This is the first time I've had dinner- usually I have brunch and it was delicious. My guest, who lives in NY and had never heard of Miss Lily's thoroughly enjoyed it."

  • "We ordered the trio tacos for $12 and it was literally three bites, but tasty! we got the sampler for two for $42, and it wasn't very much meet at all. Goat and oxtail were mostly bone, but again everything was very tasty. Plan to spend a lot, especially if you are hungry. If you don't mind the money then by all means check it out."

  • "This small venue in Soho is an excellent find. Great Caribbean food & atmosphere. You can even buy a fantastic mix-tape, Lily's sauces or visit the juice bar next door. Decor & theme highly original and worth visiting."

  • "Would have given the restaurant higher ratings if not for the inconsistent portions -- definitely don't order the sampler "for two"! It cost more than $40 and wasn't nearly enough food for two people. Also, with the sampler you have to order rice separately -- they bring you a tiny bowl. I think we got three tablespoons each. Oddly, if you order the jerk chicken meal you get half a chicken on your plate? The food is good -- certainly not authentic Jamaican -- but still delicious. Just wish we had gotten our money's worth ..."

  • "These people literally put my friend and I out and we were weren't finished with our meal. The manager came over to give up a little card for free desert for "the next time" we dine because they needed the table. I arrived at the restaurant 10 minutes early and they said all parties have to be there to be seated. Unfortunately my friend got stuck in traffic and I was left sitting at the bar waiting as the refused to seat me even though I have been a loyal customer for years. The hosted guaranteed that she is holding the table, but only bother to tell us that we had an hour to order and eat our food as she sat us down. I was flabbergasted! We were treated extremely poorly and didn't even get to finish out food. Completely unacceptable!!!"

  • "Here it is profit before people! They are more focused on getting a ton of customers in in the least possible time. They rush you to order and eat your food in less than 1.5 hrs and have an attitude that you are lucky to get a table. I have been patronizing this place for a while and have recommended it to many of my friends, however each time the experience become less than savory. Will wait a while to see if it gets any better."

  • "My boyfriend been wanting some Jamaican food. Since I am not a big fan of spicy food, we been putting it off. I said lets do it, I am glad I did. The food was great. Now I am not a big fan of the ladies with the short skirts, if your doing that for the men. What about us ladies????"

  • "We showed up a bit late due to the weather, and the staff was really accommodating. The food couldn't have been better - jerk chicken takes me back to my childhood. Loved the radio station in the restaurant. We'll have to try to sit on that side next time."

  • "The tables are way too close together. We were a party of 3 and they had us at a table top for 2. We were cramped and it wasn't easy or comfortable to try and eat dinner. I asked several times if we could move and we were told that the empty tables were on hold for a reservation at 8pm. The tables (3) sat empty during our whole meal. If I do go back I will get my food to go."

  • "The food is excellent. The service is okay. Sometimes the waitresses can get a little caught up in the music and dancing and forget about their patrons."

  • "Went here to celebrate my boyfriend's bday. They sat us right away, although my boyfriend's seat was right in the aisle.... Very awkward. Everyone kept bumping into him the entire night. Food was great. Our server was very sweet. She gave us free shots because our food took so long to come out. We will definitely be back."

  • "I brought a few friends to eat as I usually do (I eat there at least twice a month); bu after dinner & dessert we politely kicked out to seat other guests.. I felt a bit insulted.. I guess that's the restaurant business.."

  • "Excellent across-the-board apart from the server, who hung out behind the computer in the back room chatting with a food runner for a good 15 minutes while our table was ready to order. She was very nice, and that was the only thing she did wrong, but it irritated my guests, some of whom are not native New Yorkers. Everything else was flawless as usual."

  • "The Oxtail was really good my boyfriend was kind of disappointed that a jamaican restaurant didn't have escovitch fish on the menu but he got the steam fish and it very much.. If your a real West Indian don't get the pepper shrimp it's not good at all that was a disappointment but other than that the staff was nice.. I wouldn't consider it a REAL jamaican restaurant. Pretty good though."
