Went for an early dinner with my tween because she’s into the Victorian Era. It’s more of a bar than restaurant with a small menu. We enjoyed it, but they are all very small, high-top tables. Not necessarily what I had in mind when I booked reservations. I’d go for an adult drink with friends but don’t think I’d go back for a full meal.

My gf and I had brunch here. Food was pretty good. Drink was included which was great. The decor looked awesome. Service was also good!

The atmosphere of Lillie’s is interesting. Twenty foot victorian ceilings and authentic memorabilia surround you. But it’s not very clean and feels more old and dirty than antique and authentic. The afternoon tea we came for we not authentic at all. The scones were more like muffins. Whipped cream instead of clotted cream. The cucumber sandwich was nice, not the normal one served at high tea, it was hot and spicy with horseradish, but it was very good. Basically it’s not a true British High tea. The price for their hogh tea was too expensive for something that is not excellent. I would not do it again. It looks like its more of a pub than a tea a house. So for a pub, I would say go for it.

Really really loud restaurant - with even louder music on top of the loud people. Fish and chips was soggy. Hangar steak for steak frites was very small portion. Would not recommend to anyone over 25 years old. A young loud crowd on weeknight.

The prices were very good, but the food was mediocre to ok at best. The service was the best part of the experience, they were are very attentive. I would recommend if you were just looking for a hangout after some late night event on broadway. Not a ‘special occasion’ kind of place.

The server had a bad attitude and was rude when we told her she brought gr wrong side to one of our sandwiches. It was busy but there aren’t that many tables. We waited absurdly long to order more drinks which resulted in a much smaller bill. They didn’t recognize that I had an open table reservation- I’m glad I called the day before to change the count because they claimed I didn’t have one at all.

Lillie's is visually pleasing and the food was very good. The lunch special was an excellent value, and we were there when it wasn't busy, so it was a very relaxing meal. Would definitely go back!

Went with my family for their first ever visit to NYC - they loved and all around was our favorite family meal of the weekend! Our waitress was one of the best I’ve ever had, was super personable and made us laugh many times. Our meals were beyond amazing — I still can’t get over how great it was. They even surprised my dad with a birthday cheesecake! I love that this location does the 7 day a week cheeseboard and wine special for happy hour (though not advertised AT the restaurant it is a great deal)!

Very ecclectic decor. First time in NYC and stumbled upon this place. Not a huge menu, but enough to feed 4 picky eaters. Cocktails were good, but the ambiance is truly what makes this restaurant. I would go back.

With a name like "Lillie's Victorian Establishment" I thought I had found a fine dining establishment with reasonable prices and I was ecstatic. The pictures looked very nice and I thought this would be the perfect spot to get dressed up and have a nice dinner before seeing a show. I was mistaken. The ambiance of the restaurant is much more bar-like. With a handful of too close together high tables to have a meal at. While the food was good the service was not... took 45 minutes for our food to get to our table. Overall I'd give this place 3 out of 5 stars.

Went on Christmas eve they should not have been open Thay were short on staff and our food took over an hour drinks too one half hour. I have been to Lillie’s in the theatre district and loved it not here. Food was just slopped on the nachos tasted luke they squeezed cheese wiz on them . Our order came out wrong. Also because we were a group of 6 they included the 20 percent they did not deserve that much but you could not get anyone to help you. I will not go back really bad experience on a very special night.

It has been hit or miss for me at Lillies. I can be squeezed into the corner, fighting to get a beverage, or on this occasion, there was plenty of space but my party and I couldn't wait to get out of there. From the moment we walked in it smelled like bathroom disinfectant. It was strong and noticeable from the start and seemed to increase in potency when we sat down. I am generally not precious about those things but it was so palpable that my party and I did not eat and ordered a drink hoping it would get better. It did not. We ended up going across the Square to Pete's Tavern instead.

We didn't realize this was more of a happy hour place and not a quiet dinner restaurant. It was packed and loud with both voices and music. The Christmas decorations were beautiful, and the Shepherd's Pie was delicious, but the overall experience was not what we expected. At least on a Friday night, I wouldn't go there for dinner.

For the past 5 years we've had a our annual friends christmas kick off dinner at Lillie's . The restaurant looks like someone barfed up Christmas and we LOVE it! The cocktails are great and the menu has always been excellent...until this year. We always look forward to a delicious assortment of appetizers but this year we really struggled with what to order. It seemed like all the non meat options were loaded with cheese and grease and it felt like we were eating at a cheap pub instead of our favored Lillies ...so many of the items we were excited for had been removed from the menu but weren't replaced with better options. Two of my friends who are vegetarians ordered the farro dish as an entree but it was not good at all...they took one bite and left the rest. It pains me to say we were very disappointed because we so look forward to dining at Lillies...we really hope you bring back the old favorites like the pepper poppers with Sea salt, the crostini's with a variety of toppings to choose from...so many great tastes that don't pop up on every other restaurant's menu. But on a positive note our cocktails were delicious, our server was wonderful and the ambiance was festive and great as always!

Brunch Food was good but nothing exceptional. Price is very cheap. Drinks were okay. The Bellini was mostly over sweetened peach purée. The regular Bloody Mary was okay. The Gin Pickle Bloody Mary was much better. The decor is 👍🏼 the server was flighty, forgetful and almost nonexistent. Work on service and the over salted foods.
