Unfortunately the food was, let’s just say, unfortunate.
Food was very good. Portions were on the small side.
Service was awkward. Our starters came almost immediately and then there was a very long pause before our mains came. Neither were anything to speak about. Nothing outstanding, just sort of blah. I did not care for having my escargot over very salty toast. I would have rathered a traditional style and with more Calvados cream sauce. I ordered my hanger steak Medium and specifically said " hot pink center." It arrived very very rare almost bloody. Waiter never checked , never asked me or my daughter how our meal was. He took two plates away from the table with 1/2 eaten on each and never suspected there might be a problem. I didn't want to get into it with my college age daughter present, but if I had been there with my husband I would have sent it back immediately. My daughter had the $32 speckled trout and the piece of fish was incredibly small with no standout flavors. Thank goodness I ordered dessert, but it is a sad day when an ice cream trio is the best thing you ate at the restaurant. I loved the decor and ambience, but the food was blah and the service was not on point at all. $150 with -0- alcohol only water and iced tea. I would not recommend Lillette at all. I'm sorry.
Always great. Good consistent... service wonderful
We live in the neighborhood and we always enjoy coming to Lilette. The food is ALWAYS great as is the service.
It was amazing!
Awesome neighborhood spot. Excellent food.
Everything about this restaurant met and exceeded my expectations. Loved it!
If you want pedestrian bistro fare in Manhattan proximity to your dining companions, this is the place for you.
Beautiful setting. We sat on the patio which is gorgeous. Food was fabulous and expertly prepared.
What an outstanding experience! An excellent balance of professionalism and friendliness. Extraordinary food presented again in a way that it is a heightened culinary experience but in a most comfortable setting. Lilette has most certainly earned a spot in our NOLA rotation. Magnifique!
The go to French experience in NOLA.
Thought would be outstanding. Will try again maybe for lunch.
Excellent food and elegant ambiance
Such a friendly and accommodating staff. Loved sitting on the beautiful patio!
Good meal at one of our favorites.
We were visiting New Orleans for a wedding and a friend recommended Lilette. We were very happy they did. Great ambiance; great service and the food was outstanding.
One of the best meals we had.
Excellent food and service as always. A pleasurable fine dining experience!
This was our first dining experience at Lilette but definitely won’t be our last. The restaurant itself is simple and gorgeous, and the food (especially the Italian wedding soup, chicken breast, and steak frites) was DELISH! Plus the service was fantastic— helpful and not pushy. Loved it!
Terrible experience. We had a reservation yet we weren’t seated until an hour later. The food was average. Very disappointed
Great news hardly anyone there. Everything was excellent.
Such a wonderful place to spend an afternoon...delicious food and great service in a lovely, relaxing space.
Love the watermelon salad and the Italian wedding soup. The sautéed fish seemed a bit over cooked.
always excellent. good food, service and ambiance. consistently well run restaurant
Pastry chef is incredible. Her coconut cake was outstanding! Do not skip dessert!
Took the streetcar here on the first night of our NOLA stay. Food and drinks were great. Our waiters suggestions were spot on! Marscapone pasta and corn soup appetizers were Mmmmm
I recently tried to curb some of my grade inflation so not everything that is really good and worth trying like Lilette necessarily gets a 5 star . I give it 4 but it is a must stop on NO great food scene . The menu is sophisticated and all my food was superbly prepared . The sweet corn soup and crab was as expected delicate and superb. My entre was a gulf fish that was superbly cooked . The paring on a bed of quinoa was fine . I did not care for the raw vegetables that came along . For me it was an odd baring of a baked fish with cold vegetables that left me wanting for something different . The dessert a wonderful goat cheese creme franche had just the right amount of sweetness .
I found the dining chairs a bit hard and uncomfortable and not up to par with prices . Lilette is a must try .
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.
Love dining here. Cute place. Could be bigger, but I fear it’d lose some of it’s charm if it was. Service was great. Food was fantastic. Drinks were delightful. Always a great meal.
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
