The Main Dining Room features beautiful banquettes & red-wine colored walls to create a romantic ambiance. The outdoor patio is reminiscent of traditional New Orleans courtyards, with stone pavers, Sweet Olive and live Oak trees.
Begin your evening in our wine bar next door, Bouligny Tavern, with crafted cocktails and featured wine selections.
Lilette is my favorite NOLA restaurant! It never disappoints.
I love lunch here. The special are always "special". The noise level is such that I can always hear my guests. This is important if I'm having a working lunch.
Wow. Just wow! We loved every single bite!! We also loved our server and the atmosphere. Thank you! ✨
We had three appetizers and absolutely loved all three. The service was a little inattentive but not awful. It is not inexpensive. Still I'd go back just based on the quality of the food.
Ready for a fall menu!
great food and excellent service. Very nice atmosphere as well. We will go back
I would go just to get the Mezcal Negroni, but the food here is terrific. The drum is always a good choice, since the kitchen displays a lot of ingenuity in adapting the dish to whatever vegetables are in season. The staff is friendly and attentive.
So French, so fabulous.
Even though the tables are incredibly close, we were able to converse. Appreciate your efforts to cut down on noise (tables were padded underneath). Excellent service and he told us that the soft shell crab was almost gone so he saved us some even though we were not ready to order. Everything was very good and we had a great time at your bar next door for after dinner drinks! Thank you!
Been gone from NOLA for years but this was always a favorite. We were glad to see the service, food, and experience haven’t changed. Excellent dinner!
An excellent birthday experience!!
BYOB low corkage fee
been going for several years
could change up the menu
Louisiana Wagu Beef was tough, I could barely cit it with my knife, it was also $70!!! Not worth it.... took it home and gave to my dog.
Visited for the first time during a very quiet evening for the restaurant. The service was very attentive and professional, the setting was pleasant and romantic (though the a/c made it cold), and the food selection and quality were very impressive. My guest especially appreciated the daily vegan selection. We look forward to going again. Not cheap....but worth it for a special night.
Highly Recommend this Restaurant Gem!
Upon arrival, the Hostess was pleasant and very accommodating. For starters, the White Truffle Parm Toast Points and the Salad Special of Mixed Greens, Feta, and Watermelon were both delicious, although the Sizzling Shrimp appetizer was disappointing. For our entrees, both the Roasted Muscovy Duck and the Roasted Chicken Breast were outstanding. For dessert, you CAN’T go wrong with the Trio of Ice Creams! All in all —- an incredible meal! Our server was excellent without being intrusive and the restaurant ambiance only added to this very nice, romantic evening. We can’t wait return again... hopefully this week!
Overall positive experience. Lamb was delicious but portion was average.
I wish they had a larger beer selection.
Had a wonderful evening at Lilette. The food and service was outstanding!
Consistently wonderful! We love Lilette. It has wonderful dishes and beautiful affordable wine.
Tracy is amazing! Rob makes the best amaretto sour. Chelsea picked out the best Sancerre. But the highlight of the evening was Emily’s bourbon banana pudding. By far the best dessert ever had at Lilette. The Gingersnap cookies should be manufactured and sold at local grocery stores.
Great ambiance. Cheese selection on artisnal cheese plate delightful. Hearts of palm salad, fresh and light. Duck breast cooked perfectly. Desserts easily sharable.
I especially love that my favorites remain consistently on the menu, namely the hearts of palm salad, Alaskan king crab claws appetizer, and the hanger steak & fries in marrowed bordelaise
Lilette is one of my favorites - completely dependable, delicious food, great service. My only problem is wanted to eat more than is humanly possible. Every item entices.
My favorites back on the menu were wonderful as usual. Corn soup with avocado and crabmeat and fresh hearts of palm salad. I
One of the best in nola.
Food excellent as always
Always consistently good when chef John Harris is there
We were there at lunch on Saturday. Great wait staff. Food was very good. It was not noisy, but the restaurant was not crowded. They did seat guests far away from each other, which made for a
It was an amazing date night! The Alaskan crab claw was incredible! Along with the squab!
We loved the roasted peach salad and the escargot as appetizers. We had the duck and the lamb and those were phenomenal! So much flavor yet perfectly balanced and tender.
A great little restaurant in a city known for its restaurants. Always a winner since the day it was opened.
Great atmosphere, great food...a genuinely NOLA dining experience; we’ve been 7 or 8 times over the years and have never had anything less than a suburb time. One peculiarity: they are stingy with their bread. You get one piece when you sit down, and no more unless you ask...it’s not an irritant, but rather an idiosyncrasy that contributes to the charm. A real winner...
Great lively upscale restaurant. Food was amazing!
Dinner was delicious. The chocolate mousse was one of the best desserts I have had in a long time. My only negative was the location of our table. We were on the end by the pole and it was a constant stream of servers that squeezed between our table and the pole rather than go around the pole, usually knocking my chair.
Great food and excellent service. Small place with tables really close together, but we enjoyed it. Not a place for kids -- glad there were not any in there when we ate!
Great atmosphere and very good service.
Food was good - a bit pricey for the overall meal.
Excellent choice! Varied menu? Great ambience, superlative service!
From the service to the food, everything was great. As a long time chef, I could taste the quality and care from the first bite.
The food and service was excellent. Great ambiance.
Wonderful meal. Creative cuisine, professional service, busy restaurant. Problem with overcooked steak was handled promptly and correctly.
