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.

Pre-theatre dinner was average, noise level loud, more of a pub/ bar setting than sit down dinner.

The restaurant decor is great, makes you feel as if you've entered the Victorian era. Very cute date spot before seeing a show. The food was good, no complaints besides the steak being just a bit chewy for my taste (I added it to a Greek salad). Service was attentive and friendly. Priced typically for Times Square. Would definitely return.

Busy Friday night! Love the decor of this place. Food was good, service was good. It was a little hard finding a server when you needed one but that is because they were so busy. All in all a great night and will be back.

I love Lillie’s! Their menu is delicious and consistent, the service is prompt and friendly, and the vibe is always fun! The cocktails are delicious (highly recommend their Irish coffee), and their wine/beer lists are great/have something for everyone! Always a solid choice!!

This is such a cool bar. The decorations/atmosphere were fun! Service was great, so attentive. The food was really good- I had the Fish and Chips and my friend had the mussels. We were both raving about the food.

Ordered the nachos appetizer with no jalapeños but had to return because they were loaded with them. Delayed the entree 15 minutes. Had to ask for water multiple times. Ordered medium temp burger, received well done. Other than the beautiful building and decorations, not a good experience. Will not recommend.

We arrived earlier than our reservation, so we said to the hostess, we can hang out by the bar, and the hostess said well I can seat you your table is ready. So we agreed, and sat for about 5 minutes when the server arrived, I said I will have a beer, and she stood there staring at me and said ok and food? I said oh we are ordering already, so we gave her our order and under ten minutes the food was out, not our drinks. I kept trying to get the servers attention, since I assumed we would get out drinks first, relax a bit and then get served a meal? So finally I make eye contact with the waitress and she stops talking to the other server and really loud says I need two krombacher’s (beer) so we were finally served our drinks. Our food and beer was great, but felt very rushed, and no one was waiting for a table, we had food, drink, dessert and Irish coffee all speedily given to us in under an hour, would have been nice if were able to sit for a while and enjoy our food. The wait staff needs to be fine tuned , but all in all Atmosphere, food and drink were really good.

This is my second time here this Christmas season. I love this place. It reminds me of Rolf's but with more elbow room and less Schnitzel. The servers are on point, the food is delicious and just the right portion size. The ambiance I just love. I especially like the little bit of whimsy here and there. Fun bar scene, and great date night spot. Can even bring the kids.

Very disappointing experience. It was difficult to know who our server was since we were serviced inconsistently by 4 different people. I ordered the High tea menu and asked very specifically if the scones were regular/plain scones. Well they were not. They were Raisin and the only ones they serve. Since that was to be my main lunch item it went back and I got a chicken sandwich. Very basic and not that great.
I'm not sure I would go again. Maybe I'll try brunch or just a drink at the bar.

The decor is gorgeous, especially at Christmas. And that's really why you go. The food is tasty enough. The fish and chips were very good, the avocado BLT as well. The penne ala vodka was fine (mine definitely sat around for a bit before making it to my table, because it was warm but not hot). The wait staff is neither the worst nor the best. The music was extremely loud; for both teen and adult ears.

Lastima que reservamos mesa para la noche de navidad, a las 11PM, y cuando llegamos nos dijeron que en 10 minutos cerraba la cocina.

Superb
Bad food but nice deco and style
Unique
Like no other
All food is frozen
They do not show you the bottle nor make you taste any wine before serving them. Which is surprising for a place where glasses can go to 15USD.
I recommend the place. Not the food.

Have dined at Lillie's many times and always loved it. Last night, however, may keep me from ever going back.

The service was completely inattentive, but the unacceptable issue involved my drink. I ordered Crown Royal, but received Scotch...not a completely unusual occurrence, as they are similar in color and sometimes waiters/waitresses deliver the wrong glass. When I pointed out the error the waitress took my drink and returned 5 minutes later with the same drink. She said "try that one, on me". I was shocked. This is one of the lowest "tricks" one can ever experience in the service industry. I then flagged down a different waitress, who smelled my drink and immediately said "that's scotch". She then went to the bar and came back with another drink that was not Crown Royal...at least it was a bourbon, but not CR. I simply cannot believe that Lillie's would be so disrespectful.

I've recommended Liilie's, in both locations, many times. I can no longer trust them.

One of our very favorite restaurants in NYC. We try and come here whenever we’re in town. This time due to a very tardy tour bus we were very late for our reservation. The host still managed to get us seated promptly and we were very happy with his efforts as well as that of our excellent server. The food here is scrumptious and we highly recommend the burgers. You just can’t go wrong dining at Lillie’s and the decor is over the top beautiful.

Their Christmas decorations are amazing! Service was great. Drinks and food as well. If you are visiting for Christmas it’s a must because it’s decorated to the top in Christmas

The restaurant was advertised as Victorian with beautiful Christmas decorations but the ambiance, and music, was more like a very pedestrian English pub. Disappointing to have had to drive two hours into the city then wait another hour for parking for this!

Beautifully decorated restaurant!! Well done - the Shepard pie was fair at best and my boyfriends fish and chips was okay. The French fries came out cold. Would go around Chris for a cocktail. To many delicious restaurants in NYC
