An Irish-Victorian Bar and Restaurant, just steps from Times Square and numerous Broadway plays. 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 (30 on tap and 30 bottled). 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, including soups, salads, stews, fish and steaks. Lillie's serves food from 11am - 2am. The Irish Breakfast is served all day. Brunch is served on the weekends from 10am to 4pm.

I've live in New York for years and was excited to try this place on the recommendation of friends (I mean... cool bars in midtown can be hard to find). I had the worst service I had ever had at any restaurant. The waitress was incredibly rude the entire time and made me and my guest feel remarkably uncomfortable. Her poor attitude ruined the experience.

The only thing I would change is to have some low table seating (for us older gals). The lunch special is a great value. All choices are delicious. The servers are attentive and responsive.

The host was so nice, we had Adrea friends show up at the last minute and they made room for all of us to fit at a hi-top table by the bar. Drinks were great!

Great decorations on Halloween!

Fun spot. Casual dining. Our server was fantastic (forgot her name, but thank you)! We had a bite around 11 PM, as we were at the theatre and the play ended after 10:30 PM, but friendly and accommodating all around!

Very disappointing experience - We have been there before and it’s been great. The waitress seemed totally overwhelmed and most things did not come out of the kitchen correctly.

The décor / atmosphere is always great at Lillie's but OMG - the Halloween decorations were over the top amazing. Really enjoyed the efforts bringing Halloween to "life". And, of course the food and service is always great as well.

Great spot for pre-theater meal. Across the street from Book of Mormon (outrageous and hilarious). Casual, fun atmosphere. Good salad, sandwich fare with great variety of craft beers on tap.

It was absolutely lovely. Leia (I hope I’m getting that right) was our server and she was wonderful. I went for my friend’s birthday and they took such care of us. We frequent Lillie’s, but this time it was really special.

My husband and I were staying overnight in NYC. We search prior to our trip a restaurant that we could frequent after a Broadway show. We had zeroed in on several close to the hotel that we were staying in. We ended up choosing Lille's Victorian in Times Square (actually just off of 8th Ave.). We made a reservation on open table however, when we arrived there the table was not yet available. The hostess asked if we wanted a call when it became available. We decided to wait there. Within a short period of time there became another table available at which we were seated. It was charmingly decorated for Halloween. Understand that they go all out for the Christmas holiday. We had a delightful dinner and ended up sharing a dessert (it was my birthday so they actually comped that). By NY standards the meal didn't break the bank and the food was good. We would definitely consider going back however, there are so many restaurants in NYC that we would probably choose something different. Definitely worth stopping at if you are considering Lillie"s!

Great for pre-theater meals and/or drinks. The menu was limited and the rib eye was a cheap cut for $34; mostly cartilage that you
could chew. Service was great and the decor was unique.

Great brunch spot for our girl's trip to NYC. The drinks were great, the brunch was perfectly portioned and delicious. We loved the decor and the beautiful bar! The Halloween decorations were the cherry on top.

A long standing favorite, can’t beat the atmosphere! Food is delicious too & the Times Square location is perfect for pre theater dinner. Service was slow this time & they messed up my food order, but I will forgive this gorgeous place practically anything. Yes I will be back, again & again.

Though the inside of the restaurant was a pleasant surprise compared to the outside, the service was marginal, slow and food average.

The decor was nice but the food was subpar. Relatively expensive for no reason. If it tasted better or looked better I could justify the prices.

Always love to stop in when we are in the city. We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful hostess who was able to move us from a high top to a booth. As always the drinks were amazing and so were the nachos. Love the BLT with avocado and egg, my daughter loved her fish and chips, and her friend really enjoyed the grilled chicken sandwich. I just wish we had room for dessert!

Good time before Book of Mormon. Good beet choice, rib eye steaks were also good, shrimp cocktail was the bomb. . Great service and pacing...we were early for our reservation but got seated early. Great ambience.

Ideal if you’re seeing a play in the district and need a place for a quick bite. Not gourmet, but something for everyone in our large crowd.

We went here before the Book of Mormon show and picked it due to its proximity to the theater. The atmosphere is fun and the decor is super eclectic and eye catching. We all enjoyed our meals, and would recommend this to anyone.

As always, Lillie’s Time Square did not disappoint. The service was excellent, the food ample and delicious, and the atmosphere is cozy. There were four in our party and we each had omelette. The seasonal vegetable omelette was delicious with sautéed spinach, broccoli, cherry tomato, and cheese. The home fries were perfectly cooked, the only downside to the meal was the toast was cold. We enjoyed our meal and will definitely come back for brunch.

Went to Lillie’s before seeing a show at the theater. Had good reviews and a cool, Victorian feel but the food was overpriced for what you got and in general low quality.
