    The staff was extremely accommodating and provided superb service for my wife on her birthday with her close friends. She had so much fun that she ended up staying there till they closed. Can't wait to setup another event at ilili

    Absolutely delicious Lebanese food! Very fresh, well presented, and each dish is distinctive. Service is good when they are paying attention, but waiters can suddenly disappear. We had to retrieve our wine from the bucket and pour it ourselves. Very nice space and ambiance, unfortunately the noise levels are ridiculous. 89 decibels according to SoundPrint! Almost painful.

    My husband and I took our family to celebrate Eid last night. We had reservations for 4 at 7:45, we were seated 30mins late. While sitting in the lounge we were not offered service not even water. The food was very good being Lebanese we were excited to celebrate our culture with great food. We paid cash and tip 24% even though the overall service was terrible. As I was leaving with my mother in law the manager stopped us to asked if we were leaving without paying. Which was extremely embarrassing. That should’ve been communicated with the server and not us so openly in the middle of the restaurant. My husband and I are New Yorkers and go to Michelin or 5 star restaurants all the time and we just expected better service based on the hype. By far the worse experience service wise.
