The portions are generous and filling, we split two mains between three of us and then split 2 desserts and we were stuffed! The staff are very friendly and just have a warmth to them we has an awesome time.

We weren’t in love with the brunch food but the drinks, service and atmosphere were amazing. I’ve been there for the regular menu and prefer lunch/dinner here as far as food goes.

Came here for brunch with friends from out of town and we all LOVED the food. Plates were pretty much licked clean. The corn side is a MUST ORDER and the scotch bonnet mayo on the fish sandwich is something I won't forget. Will return!

This was my first visit to Miss Lily's and I was not disappointed. The food was tasty, well seasoned and decent size portions. The homemade ginger beer was delicious- I will definitely be paying another visit to Miss Lily's again in the near future!

I got a horrible waitress. I was in a 3 piece suit in a T shirt and jeans place. The price fixe dinner was not worth $48. Was that even real turkey? The hostess and my waitress seemed to busy to pay me any attention. Why did I get a table by the drafty door? There was many tables in the rear. I have had better cuisine by their competitors. It is overpriced and slow service. I only tipped 14%. I usually tip 20%

Be prepared to be asked to leave. The hostess was inhospitable and dampened an otherwise exciting birthday celebration by placing a time limit on our reservation and turning down our request for another round of drinks--although no one was visibly waiting. In 2017, we should expect and encourage better planning and commitment to customer service--not this disappointing experience and treatment.

I enjoyed the cuisine as always but I made a reservation bc it was an anniversary for my husband and I. I made the reservation early at 6 so I could enjoy our dinner before the crowd arrive and sit in the back. I was told I could not sit in the back without a good reason. I was just told It's bc they sit the front first. So sadly we had to spend our anniversary talking over the louder music in the front. I was very disappointed! I thought I had planned properly for an anniversary evening for food and atmosphere, since one of our first date was there. Instead we were provided a lame excuse to be forced to sit in front even with a reservation at the least busiest time.

Food is ok but service terrible. We were asked to leave our table before seeing the dessert menu and with four full drinks to make room for the next reservation. Totally ruined dinner with our in laws.

Service was suuuuper slow and wait staff not the brightest. I arrived early for a birthday dinner and asked the waitress to keep my credit card so that my friend and I wouldn’t argue over the bill at the end of the night.

I went to the bathroom at the end of our meal and asked her to run my card. When I came out of the bathroom she had run my friends card (the birthday girl). Then she couldn’t find my card for a few minutes.

On top of that, this location doesn’t serve liquor. All their cocktails are made with soju and cost way too much considering.

Overall, really disappointed.

Although the food at the restaurant was amazing, the service is seriously lacking. They need better waitresses. The one we had on a Sunday evening just did not cut it. Didnt seem to have good knowledge of drink menu and just did not seem at least fake happy to be doing her job. Turned off by the service but the food was indeed good, and Im Jamaican so I know tasty Jamaican food.

Casual, cool interior design.
Staff attentive to patrons standing [who were not yet seated]. Brunch: server attentive with refilling glasses of Bellinis*
Would have preferred for the glass to actually be empty before being served again, versus the glass being 1/4 empty and being topped off frequently. Made it difficult to keep track of how many drinks were had.*
Coconut pancakes are amazing!
Rich in flavor; berries were juicy; pancakes were a fair serving portion.
Will revisit.
Definitely recommend.

I went to miss Lily's for boozy brunch. The food and drinks are pretty solid and the decoration is fun but we had terrible service. The waitress was rude throughout the whole meal and ignored me on 3 separate occasions when I asked for a coffee. She then cut us off before our 2 hour mark for bellinis and when I asked her to fill my drink up "a little bit" she legitimately put less than a tablespoon and stomped away. She proceeded to include 20% gratuity.

Took a coworker to experience Caribbean cuisine was very embrassed menu choice was very basic & limited. It was more like a grab a bite rather than a after 6pm dinner. Order Jerk Chicken they bought a half of chicken that was not cut up I asked it they could cut it up for us and was told no, we were at the table fighting & ripping the chicken. was like we were at a little hole in the wall grabbing a $5. meal. Porgie on dinner menu!!! really. Will never go back there, P.S. I have been going there for years.
