Comfort Food
An Irish-Victorian Bar and Restaurant, just steps from Union Square. In the "Ladies' Mile District" of days gone by. The interior has a distinctly late 19th century feel with wooden furnishings brought from Belfast, Ireland.
Serving a wide range of domestic and international beers 25 on tap. A great selection of whiskeys and wines, including some excellent wine from the Langtry Winery in California where Lillie herself owned and lived for a time.

The food is traditional Pub Fare. Bottomless Brunch on weekends from 11am to 4pm. It includes Mimosas, Bloody Marys, Aperol Spritz, and Seasonal Bellinis. Our last seating for Bottomless is 3.00pm.

To keep it short and sweet ... Lillie’s is a great spot for music, drinks, and short gathering of friends.

I was in the area with family and went for lunch. Our tea and food were cold. The service took forever even though the restaurant was empty and our food did not taste good. It seems this place is only good for the cocktails.

The atmosphere was great. The food and drinks were good, but the service was terrible. Food came before drinks, plates being cleared before we were done, we had to as for water 3 times, and every time we ordered drinks it took 10 + minutes to get them and they weren't even busy. We won't bother going back.

I went for Sunday brunch with two other friends. After more than a half hour none of our drinks arrived. When we inquired about them two minutes later our food arrived. By the way, the restaurant was pretty much empty. I got the steak and eggs. I asked for the steak rare and it came medium. The eggs were about the worst sunny side up eggs I’ve ever had. The roast potatoes were OK and the salad was just OK. The decor is lovely but the food and the service was poor and I would not plan on ever going back.

We were seated promptly by a polite hostess. The restaurant is an interesting Victorian building with unique touches such as a beautiful marble fireplace mantle and stained glass windows. The food was mediocre however. Would be more impressive if they upped their game on their food. Nacos were bland.

More vegetarian options on the menu would be nice, more white wines, and the music a little lower. I'm quite fond of the place generally, though.

Loved the Moscow Mules, both of them! Chicken pot pie superb; mussels - spectacular-extra-bread sauce; wings, a little dry but tasty. Helpful, knowledgeable, patient and really nice waitress.

The food tasted a bit freezer burn, and the chef missed the temp of the steak by 2 levels. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Poached eggs were undercooked and English muffins were not even slightly toasted. And the same for my friend who ordered the same. :/

The service was really great. The interior is absolutely beautiful. But I'm so surprised by the super positive reviews on the food. It was just very meh, very bland. I get that is is a pub and maybe I'm accustomed to 'elevated pub food'. Not sure how to think about it. The steak frites was fine. The fries were ok, not particularly good. The avocado BLT was super bland. Even the pretzels, though hot, were kind of hard, like they had come from frozen. I was disappointed. Of all the restaurants in NYC I can't say I'd be back to this one.

Way too loud in there, didn't realize it would be more of a sports bar. Except with a classy-ish setting. If they played light jazz or something, maybe. But the music was pointless top 40s.

Drinks were fine, definitely not worth the tag.

Food was mediocre to good.

Service was always decent.

We had a wonderful dinner in this quaint restaurant. Beautiful decor and atmosphere. Loved the manager and how friendly he was! He took the time to speak with us and surprised our girls with a NYC treat. Will definitely go back if we are in the city again!

Lillies has a great ambiance with really attentive service. We were seated in a corner, which didn't allow for enjoying the full energy of the room. However it was still really nice. The food is tasty and well executed comfort food. No crazy wild and inventive dishes here. But sometimes you just want your meal to be delicious and familiar. Come on by and have a fun time enjoying their festive atmosphere.

Nicely decorated. Friendly staff. . From there it goes down. Not a place to eat - food is mediocre at best. Not a place to talk - can’t even hear yourself think. Not a place to save money - expensive.

Great place to dine at only high chairs and high booths available for seating so if you don’t like to be up high this may be a no go for you.

The food is amazing and every bite was well worth it.

The service was quite slow but nothing too exaggerated.

I would dine again.

Lillie's was great. The food, ambiance and service were all great. I chose Lillie's because I couldn't get a reservation at Oscar Wilde. It was a nice alternative. (And I really love Oscar Wilde!)

Great lunch! Our server was excellent. Good wine recommendation.
My only comment would be the beets in the beet salad were over cooked.

No ambiance and lots of health hazard. The skirt stake in my Stake and Eggs smelled nearly expired. The high top table and chair were really shaky. There was smell of sour kitchen washcloth and dirty socks in the air. The whole place felt and smelled filthy and ran down (the blazing music was really something too, some mediocre one-season pop the waitress kept putting on and loudly humming along). How disappointing in comparison to their Times Square location.

Service was pretty slow, getting water or our server's attention was difficult. I really enjoy this establishment I am hoping it was just a fluke.

Lillie's is my favorite place to take guests from out of town because I never have to worry about the dress code. It's a lovely establishment and they can wear almost anything and fit in. The drinks are great, the servers are kind, but the real star is the decor. Upon entering, you're instantly transported back a hundred years and it is always interesting for new folks to enjoy. Lillie's is one of my top go-to's.
