Quiet Brunch Spot
We had a nice, quiet early brunch at Lillies. Not too many people around, great food & service, and nice setting helped us enjoy our meals. Very close to the National Zoo for a walk afterwards.

A gem in the Woodley Park area.
This is a gem not to be missed. When I stay in the Woodley Park area, I usually just hit the regular places by the Marriott/Omni - Woodley Cafe, Open City, Murphy's and such. This was a great new addition to the neighborhood. A couple blocks up from the Metro towards the zoo. Great decor, staff was A+ and our meals were tasty, good portions and well presented. My daughter had the Ceasar salad with steak and I had the eggplant. Both were great choices.
We will be back to Lillies.

We enjoyed our Easter breakfast
We enjoyed our Easter breakfast very much. We got to D.C. early and while our reservation was not for yet another hour, they worked us in - which gave our family more time to visit -- they didn't rush us at all. And the food was good and the service was watchful. It met expectations and then some.

My friend was looking for a place to host my Bridal Shower and found that Lillie's has a private room for such an event. We decided to eat there to get a feel for the place and absolutely enjoyed ourselves! The restaurant is quaint, not too noisy, excellent service and the food is superb. She had the swordfish and I had the chicken marsala. I would highly recommend Lillie's for your dining experience and we are looking forward to having my Bridal Shower there!

A small but bright and cheery
A small but bright and cheery spot. A few steps from the National Zoo a great place for adults to enjoy a tasty lunch. If we lived in the neighborhood we would be regulars. The food was delicious and the service friendly. Too chilly a day to attempt out side dining but will in the future.

Lillies was a great find.
Lillies was a great find. My husband said that the lasagna was the best he has ever had. Location was perfect for our trip to the National Zoo.

Nice place, a few hickups
Wonderful decor, set right near the zoo. Our party had to wait for tables to be arranged in spite of our reservation and being he only patrons, but the wait was minimal. Brunch fair was nice with a few more eclectic offerings. Various egg dishes were cooked inconsistantly but the staff was accommodating and attentive.
Would definitively return, great when visiting the Zoo

We were in DC for a wedding and looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary. Lillies is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Attentive and friendly staff. Varied menu. I had tortellini and chicken, my wife had fish - both were excellent. Desserts were fantastic. Service was perfectly paced for us. I would recommend Lillies for anyone living or staying in the DC area. We'll be back the next time we are there.

I had seen this small cozy restaurant from the street but only had a chance to go to it recently. Excellent food, reasonable prices. I'd recommend it for dates and families.

Fabulous dining experience
I took a friend visiting D.C. on a business trip to Lillies for dinner. There were great choices on the menu across the board. We both had to decide on at least 5 appealing choices for entrees. In addition, the restaurant is gluten-free friendly. From start to finish the experience was wonderful. The food was outstanding, the wait staff hit the correct pace and attentiveness. Overall, it was a 5 star dining experience. Kudos across the board.

A Rose for Lillie's
Excellent service. Menu featured a nice variety. Our family of four each had something different and no one was disappointed. Would definitely visit again on our next trip to DC!

A most enjoyable evening
I was welcomed most courteously, service throughout was excellent. Not too much, not too little attention - just right.
I had seafood on risotto. The shrimp were perfect, at their most tender. The risotto was a most pleasant surprise, perfectly done, not soupy as often the case.
I'll definitely be back!

We went here for dinner last
We went here for dinner last night. It is very nicely excoriated inside. I had a couple of questions about the menu but the waiter had no idea how to answer. He didn't know the difference between a cream sauce and a marinara sauce. He went to ask the chef and still came back with the wrong answer.
On a positive note, the food was pretty good although not "that" good for the price they were charging.

Lillies is less than a half mile from the Woodley Park-Zoo Metro station and the Omni Shoreham which is a nice walk and a nice experience once you arrive. Both my husband and I enjoyed it and we would go again.
