Absolutely wonderful! I was there for lunch and had the best salmon dish ever.
Food selection was great. Just the right amount of service, no hovering, or snatching the plates away, that I find so often. Explanation of food specials, and willing ness to make the evening a delight. I will return for a late lunch to try that menu!
One of my Favorite places in Louisville!!
Birthday nothingapecial done
The food was great and service was outstanding! The only disappointment was the bottle of Prosecco we ordered, which was flat.
Love this place for lunch with friends. Everett, our server, was awesome and made the whole lunch experience special. Great place to talk and eat delicious food!
Took my family there for our annual Christmas dinner. The food and atmosphere were excellent.
Nice experience, great bourbon list; would visit again.
Didn't love it this time. My salad had way too much dressing, just a pool of it in the bottom of the bowl. My husband had a caesar salad and it didn't taste anything like a Caesar salad. It barely had any dressing on it.
We both had steaks which were fine but nothing special. Honestly I've had better steaks at Longhorn.
It's a lovely restaurant atmosphere but just didn't feel there was anything really special or interesting about the food. Nothing on the menu really grabbed either one of us, so that's why we both had the steak.
For a $150 meal for two, I expected more.
Great food. Warm, friendly, helpful servers.
Went for a Christmas lunch with family. Love this local foodie restaurant with lots of charm. Took my out of town parents was sure they’d be impressed. The sweet potato pear soup was wonderful and the Colonial salad very good. The disappointment came with the service we received, plates left long after we had finished and pushed aside, water glasses left empty. This is not my usual experience here, unfortunately this happened when I was trying to show the restaurant off. Everybody has bad days.
Food was delicious and service was great!
Perfect in every way. A place where you can carry on a conversation without shouting.
Dinner with a dear friend. Food, as always, was amazing.
Service was spectacular. Jeff is attentive, kind ... a delight.
Love Lily’s. It is always a great choice for a special occasion lunch. Our server Edward was terrific.
ALWAYS the best! Food was superb. Thank you.
First class food and service! Our guests from Chicago also enjoyed themselves! Thank you!
Wonderful as usual. One of my favorite places for small or large lunch or dinner
All local and seasonal food, excellent quality, with beautiful presentation. Relaxed and pleasant atmosphere with knowledgeable and attentive staff.
Tasty food, fast and friendly service, posh atmosphere. What is there not to love?
Simply Amazing! Great overall dining experience. Would highly recommend. Excellent Bourbon selection as well.
Our go to place! For a nice date night. Ask for Jeff...he’s fantastic!
Lilly's is always a stellar experience, and tonight was no exception. From the French onion soup and rabbit gnocchi as starters, the veal and sea bass for mains, all the way through to the exquisite caramel cake and homemade ice cream - it was delicious! Our server was attentive and knowledgeable, and having owner and chef Cathy stop by each table had me at borderline fan-girl level (as a 20-year patron).
Side note- I reserved on Open Table and made a special request for the caramel cake, not realizing it was on the regular dessert menu. When Lilly’s hostess called to confirm our reservation, she asked if we still wanted the caramel cake and if it was a special occasion-so attention to detail is truly a Lilly’s trademark at every level.
Thank you, Lilly’s!!
Great food and friendly staff. I recommend
The BEST place to take out-of-town guests. Kathy and Will put Louisville in its best light with their inventive, perfectly prepared cuisine, beautiful interiors, and friendly service. You can never go wrong at Lilly’s.
Lilly's is consistently the BEST restaurant in Louisville, KY.
This is a neighborhood gem. Excellent food and service. What a pleasure to dine at Lilly's.
Great variety on the menu and very attentive and friendly staff. This is a must visit. It's small in size but not in flavor.
Thank you Lilly's for a wonderful evening.
Was in Louisville for the Breeders Cup and went here when they had a fixed menu. The 3 course were all excellent and the price was reasonable. Easy parking and a engaged staff made this a very pleasant experience.
My favorite spot in Louisville! Excellent service and delicious food. The menu is creative without being weird. The Pots de Creme is definitely worth the calories!! I highly recommend.
The food was very good. The red snapper special was very nice with an Asian spin. We were visiting from out of town and we were disappointed by the overall service, in particular the hostess. She seemed totally disinterested in us and did not make us feel welcome. Since she sat us right by the entrance, we were able to watch her and she seemed only to be interested in the regulars. I doubt we would visit this restaurant again.
Our Server, Jeff was very 'relational' and friendly. He was very pleasant and very informative about the special and in re: to any questions we had.
It is always been a treat to go to Lilly's, and I've never been disappointed. It was my mother's birthday, she had a great time and enjoyed herself. The food was excellent, as always, and I have never had anything there that I did not like.
Have loved Lilly's for years. But quality of food and service has slipped this year. Server has been slow to show up after we're seated. Drinks are slow to come. We had to ask for bread. Soup was wonderfully tasty but not hot. We were warned that one entree was hot from the broiler; out had cooled from sitting out. Lilly's is a wonderful place. The need to sweat the basics. That's how I learned to love it in the first place.
My friend and I were in Louisville for a few days from Hawaii. I am an owner of restaurants and I saw your listing on the ten best restaurants in that city. It looked charming from your web site with Open Table, so I booked a dinner rez for dinner. What a lovely evening with great food. Our waiter, Jeff, was great! Loved your atmosphere!!
The food more than made up for the fact that our waiter seemed to be actively ignoring us. He was very busy...just not where we were concerned. But what great meals! The cocktails could use some work.
Jeff was very attentive and the food was wonderful
Wonderful birthday celebration lunch. Lovely
Our evening could not have been better... the service (especially Michael) and guest appearance by the owner topped off our night!
The butternut squash and apple soup was one of the best soups I’ve ever had! The burger was perfectly prepared with all the high end accoutrements, including some very special-tasting ketchup to complement the truffle fries. Wow. Lemon icebox pie with graham cracker crust was the perfect ending .. and warm but professional service throughout the meal... from the front door to the bussers to the server.. impressive.
Great evening, great service, great food! Will return again.
