Respect. Inspire. Teach. Learn. Create. Achieve Greatness.
Tell Me – it’s what “ilili” means. For our guests, Tell Me means listening to and understanding each of their stories and creating new ones with them – ones of celebration and sharing, of long traditions and new beginnings.
Every dish at ilili has its own story from the traditional recipes direct from Lebanon, to the modern updates that tell the history of our team, of our cooks and chefs who have left their mark on our kitchen, and our serving staff and managers who have been ambassadors of hospitality. Our menu is never done – we find inspiration all around, in new ingredients, new approaches, and fresh takes on old standards.
ilili is a place where creativity abounds from the kitchen to the dining table where each guest becomes an artist, creating his own palette of flavors with our dishes as the canvas and good friends as the audience.

Creative and tasty dishes are the best part of it, interesting cocktails and good service, though very noisy, it is vibrant and remains one of our favorites.

Excellent take on traditional Lebanese food. Service very attentive, but not pushy. Very accommodating of special dietary requests. Will definitely come back for the tasting menu.

The food was delicious. Highlights were the cauliflower, scallops, and labne. The service was mediocre at best. They forgot to bring out one of our dishes, didn't explain the menu, and over charged the bill. This place is expensive. It should be better.

The server, John, was very helpful in recommending highlights from the menu, as well as quantity. Attentive but not overbearing. Excellent food! Have already made recommendations to friends.

Very operpriced for the quality of the food. When I dine at places like this I expect the food to be incredible. Instead, the Branzino was soggy and flavorless.

Delicious Mediterranean food. So nice to be able to order a little of this and a little of that and share with everyone. Everything we ordered was delicious, the staff was attentive and the atmosphere was wonderful.
