Ilili was wonderful as always!! Food was delicious & service was excellent! We had a great experience.
We love this place! We highly recommend it, we love the food, the service, and the ambiance. This was our first time back since the pandemic and we felt they followed all the safety precautions and still gave us a warm wonderful experience!
Alex was our server, who was Amazing. He was energetic, recommended a fantastic menu (like Omakase). Loved it!
It's a great date spot and perfect for group dinners as well!
Isaac was a great server who was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and who provided outstanding quality service
Wonderful and unique brunch. The fresh fruit atayef is a must get! The rose syrup is incredible as an accompaniment to the dish as well as on its own. The pita bread was sooooo good! My husband and I enjoyed every bite. Great service and relaxing atmosphere was the perfect way to start a Sunday. Cannot wait to go back!
Not as good as the last time - the food was also not as good.
Food was delicious. Great service too. Planning to go back
Very nice staff and excellent food.
Excellent food and drinks. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful (although we waited about 10 minutes before anyone came to our table). Overall a good experience
Great spot. Sat outside in one of the sheds. Excellent overall.
Delish! One of the best fine dining Lebanese food in town
Absolutely fantastic food and great non-alcoholic drink options (the lemonade mocktails are divine). Took my pistachio allergy very seriously and were accommodating of it. Everything tasted exquisite as always.
Food was incredible. Nice ambience for a date. Recommend the crispy brussels sprouts!
Ilili has done an awesome job of providing a safe yet festive and chic dining environment. Food always great and service was outstanding
Delicious Brussels sprouts- must try
Chicken kabobs good
Falafel very good
Some walnut spread- delicious also must try
Always Loved ilili, wonderful place. Highly recommend their delicious food!
Staff was welcoming and passionate about the food. All the recommendations we got were amazing. Falafel burger was on point
Excellent service with perfect timing. Food was exceptional, well presented and just the right size. Thank you
Our server Lubna was sooooo nice and helpful. Beautiful food.
Great overall experience, would highly recommend
Excellent Middle East Restaurant. Food is absolutely great. Ambience is in constant happy mood.
Ilili never ever disappoints! The food is remarkable. If you want authentic Lebanese cuisine with a flair of excellence then this place is surely unbeatable in NYC. We ordered most of the mezze menu and the deliciousness just kept coming in. Service was impeccable, friendly and courteous without being over bearing. The waiters new how to pronounce the Arabic dishes which is a delight. I do want to comment that the place was extra full and it didn’t feel at 50% capacity and if it hadn’t been that our table was nearly all vaccinated I wouldn’t have felt safe in the place. But it was also enjoyable to see and feel NYC going back to life in this amazing restaurant at least for an evening. I can’t wait to go back!
Awesome. As usual.
Simply the best Lebanese food around here. Outstanding food and outstanding service.
Yes I ordered 2 1/4 pitchers of Arak, but $380 for a dinner for 2 (7/8 appetizers)? Come on.
I will definitely recommend ilili to a friend, the experience overall was amazing as usual, but will warn them about the check.
The place looked great and the food was excellent it was a bit pricey but we will definitely go back again
ilili Easter Sunday was a complete and utter mess. We had to wait 25 minutes for our table to be setup, despite the fact that we got to the restaurant in time for our 12:45 pm reservation. After that, we had to wait until 2 pm for the appetizers to arrive and then 3 pm for the actual food to arrive. Dessert arrived at 4 pm. The service was very slow and the food took forever and the response for this was "it's because of COVID". I would definitely not book ilili for Easter Sunday ever again.
It was okay. Little overpriced but delicious food
Wonderful food. Definitely the tastiest fries I ever had.
Really delicious takes on some classics. Great for sharing for a group.
Great food, good service and nice atmosphere. Very lively
Had the best experience here. Mert was a fantastic server and the food was amazing. Will be back!
I was very impressed!
Amazing meal. Have been eating Lebanese food my entire life and Ilili was one of the best (if not the best) upscale Lebanese meals I've had. Excellent service too.
Wonderful dinner and ambiance -- we had a great time. The staff was attentive and the drinks were great.
Hands down the best middle-eastern/Lebanese food in New York.
Mert was very helpful. We will definitely come again.
Amazing food and amazing service! They go above and beyond to cater to allergies/food restrictions
Food and service were amazing.
