All nice except it was too loud. Maybe large tables of women should go into the second room. There were two such tables and they were very loud.
We had a wonderful experience and look forward to going back again!
Took to long to be asked what I wanted to order but the waiter was polite n kind
Pleasant bistro that we frequent often
We were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary as we have done many years prior at Cafe Lily. I had the pork chop in a cherry wine sauce with roasted potatoes and green beans and it was exceptional! Bob lamb had the house special.
Our family has a great.time at dinner. Brittany and the team was very attentive to our needs and all enjoyed their meal! We will be back.
Loved it!! Beautiful place with incredible dishes
Always enjoy the pinchitos and the extensive wine list.
Great food and nice ambiance. Everything we had was really good. Even things on menu that were pretty everyday---like salads--were really done well. Grilled eggplant app was awesome as was the hummus app. The tiramisu is a signature dessert and should be. Really good and better than any other I've had.
The food was just lovely and our server was delightful. I go to Cafe Lily often with special guests and enjoy it every time.
Always amazing - flavors you can’t get anywhere else nor duplicate.
A neighborhood staple. Always delicious -- and relaxing.
We enjoyed the food, service and ambiance - It was a nice Saturday night dinner outing
This is a reliable place for both lunch and dinner. The food and service are very good.
Hands down the BEST dining in Decatur! We had a great experience from start to finish! The fig cake is a MUST try! & the Shrimp and Chorizo was outstanding!
The staff was friendly, the food is great and very reasonably priced for the high quality.
This my go-to spot in Decatur.
Love Cafe Lily. Consistently good food, professional service, great location.
Food was delicious! Expensive but worth it for a nice celebration.
Great meal. Attended with 3 family members and we all ordered the price fix menu of the evening. Different entrees among us and all parties were very pleased. Paired the meal with a bottle of Cabernet and we all eventually left full and happy. Lemon custard dessert was very nice end to the meal too.
The ambiance, food and service were outstanding. We enjoyed celebrating two of our friends birthdays. Loved the sparklers on the dessert.
This is a local restaurant for us and have been many times. There have been recent price increases that are somewhat understandable, but on the most recent visit, the tab for one person was $65 for 3 courses. At that price, the food should be excellent, not just OK. For example, $9 for a beet salad using CANNED beets is a bit much. The wait staff is pleasant, but should not have to be reminded to bring items.
We're sorry you feel that price increases are exorbitant, but we appreciate your understanding that they are necessary. However, not once in our twenty years of business have we ever used canned beets for our Orange Blossom Salad or anything else. If you find that hard to believe, upon your next visit, we will be happy to show you the fresh beets that we use for that dish. Thank you for choosing Café Lily, and we hope to see you in again soon!
Went for Mother's Day as was looking for a nice and different place to go. Service was good as we were seated before our reservation time, and the waitstaff was attentive being that it was a busy day. The ambience is okay, but not fully what I was expecting. The food was ok. My wife enjoyed her shrimp and polenta and my lamb and eggs were okay. I was looking for a memorable experience, but I guess I chose the wrong place. My son topped it off by saying "you could have made this stuff at home".
Great place for Mothers Day Brunch! Excellent wine list! Friendly, attentive wait staff.
Had a great Mother's Day brunch at Cafe Lily. The menu choices were terrific, the food was excellent, and the service was superb. Enjoyed our meal very much! We will be coming back for sure.
The staff made it clear it was mother's Day and busy. Very matter of fact place. Food average
Service was great! The food was just OK. The portion sizes were small and the food was not hot. Also I feel like the descriptions in the menu sounded much better than what was presented on the plate. Parking is difficult, especially if you have someone in your party who has mobility difficulties.
Food was delicious, great service. Felt a bit rushed because of Mother’s Day. Were there only about 1 hour.
Pre Mother’s Day Dinner
As always, our evening at Cafe Lily was full of great ambience and delicious food. Angelo's legacy continues, with summer-themed mixed drinks at the bar and some delicious and surprising takes on short ribs. A salad and a tapas were enough for a good meal as well. And the Zinfandels! Extraordinary.
Cafe Lily always provides an amazing dining experience.
Frankly, Cafe Lily surprised us in a wonderful way. We were expecting a good dinner, but what we did not expect was to be wowed. Everything was outstanding: The service, the food, the warm welcome, the ambiance. Our waitstaff person was delightful and competent, and the food was well presented and delicious. The deserts were excellent, too. The experience we had assures that we will return.
One of our very favorite restaurants in and around Atlanta area. Always consistent, always a pleasure to visit. Food is outstanding, service is wonderful. Can't ask for a nicer place to go for a lovely meal.
Café Lily is a one of my favorite spots to dine. We always have experienced delicious food and exceptional service. The only thing I wish you would change is the bread. It is really terrible, the concept of grill burns on white bread-YUCK
Our food was abundant and delicious. Loved the salmon and small portion was quite enough. Food is really special here!
Very pleasant cafe with good food and excellent service
The red snapper with spinach and mushrooms was a special and it was excellent. Prepared perfectly with a light butter wine sauce. The fresh beets tapas with blue cheese was also very good. The only disappointment was the tiramisu. Since it said house made, we opted for that. Such a disappointment. Not good at all. Heavy, thick and odd taste to it. In retrospect I should have said something. But since it was my birthday, I decided not to Next time I will try the coconut cream pie. I still gave it a five star because otherwise food and service was perfect.
Noisy tuxedo-and-gown clad foursome at next table spoiled the atmosphere for us. They made sure all nearby knew they were going to the opera and had expensive seats...and were opera connoisseurs!
Cafe Lily is truly a Decatur institution, and this reputation is well-earned. Food is consistently delicious, and the menu emphasizes traditional favorites with a unique twist. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The venue itself is beautifully decorated and Cafe Lily is a lovely spot for everything from an informal dinner with friends to an intimate formal evening.
The only real issue is that parking can be difficult to secure, although Cafe Lily's website offers excellent suggestions, and the restaurant can get a little noisy.
Extremely well run restaurant, with friendly and efficient staff, a very active expediter, and delicious food. Noise level high, but not a major detriment.
