Food was just ok. Pear and cranberry crisp dessert was so overly sweet it was an unpleasant way to end the meal
Food is good and the restaurant week special is an actual good deal.
We did not have a great experience at this restaurant week lunch. The service was not attentive and was extremely slow - so slow that we ran out of time and had to leave before dessert. I found myself wondering if the kitchen was short staffed, and maybe the dining room staff too. While the Brussels sprouts starter was quite good, I wasn’t wowed by anything else. It was fine but for the price not impressive. I think the food at Panera is just as good and a whole lot cheaper. Perhaps over time, Lia’s is sliding.
Went there for restaurant week (they have the best RW option as they open up almost their entire menu for RW). The food was good. Our server was friendly and attentive. Thank you
They make their pasta on site so it is always the best.
The Restaurant Week deal is terrific -- everything on the regular menu is among the options. It was mobbed at lunch, but despite that the service was excellent and the waiter was attentive. Mac and Cheese appetizer and entree salad with Maple Salmon were very good; dessert -- pear and cranberry crumble -- was overly sweet and a bit disappointing. But overall, a really good experience.
Jason was spot on with his suggestions, food came out perfectly and this was by far the best restaurant week deal I’ve had. I will definitely be coming back.
I made a reservation for four as part of DC Restaurant week. This was my first time dining at Lia's, and my husband and I will definitely return in the future. Everyone at our table was very satisfied with their starter, entree, and dessert choices and the service was fantastic.
92 birthday celebration and server and manager was great.
Lia's has the best restaurant week, barr none! The mussels were the best I've had since Belgium, and the salmon Cobb salad was outstanding! My friend was equally pleased and plans to bring her family (I'm already a regular).
Good menu with options for everyone. Good food.
The number of family with kids is increasing - perhaps it was an unusually high number that night.
We love dining at LIA’S! Went on the earlier side of dinner because our middle school aged girls were with us, service was attentive but not completely consistent. We think it may have been due to the early time and staff just coming together as opposed to later when they have a solid flow. Food was excellent as always!
Really enjoyed our evening at Lia's - the food was delicious, service was attentive, and the atmosphere was warm and inviting.
We eat here all the time and love the food, the staff, and the environment. In the summer, we are here at least once a week sitting outside and enjoying the food and the weather.
My favorite restaurant. Never fails to serve a delicious meal.
We typically go here several times a year and the experience is consistently good.
Loved the new bartender on NYE, and the new menu, and the extra decorations!
Our previous visit to Lia’s was not stellar. This time it was a wonderful evening. Our waiter was excellent. The food was delicious.
Lia's doesn't disappoint, and having Christmas eve dinner there was an enjoyable experience. The food is always good.
It was Christmas Eve dinner. Waitress seemed overwhelmed. Ordered 2 bottles of wine when dinner order was given, but wine didn’t show up until we were half way through eating our entrees
We enjoyed the food and the service!
Great Christmas Eve meal and fantastic service!
Rachel, our server was excellent. We all took her recommendations and loved every thing we ordered! Great service, great food, great experience.
Second time celebrating Christmas Eve at Lia’s. Food was wonderful and it is a big restaurant, but still feels warm for the holiday
Th3e food, as always, is great... the ambiance in the bar was very relaxed and our server was very attentive.
Attentive service; table was ready at specified time. Food was excellent and fresh. Busy restaurant was not too loud. Appreciated the mirrors along the walls for people seated with back to the dining room. Would definitely go back.
It was our first time dining there and with all the great food options we said we'd definitely go back to try different food. We went to celebrate my moms 91st birthday and she loved it. They gave us a sweet desert to honor her, which was such nice touch.
Ordered a salad with salmon. They forgot the salmon and then my meal was delayed while my friends ate and the salmon was a bit over cooked.
Easy to carry on a conversation.
Enjoyed the Barolo.
Wild boar ragu dish was very good.
$19 special is a great offering.
Prefer a simple green side salad.
Lia's is one of our favorite spots, whether sitting at the bar for appetizers and dinner or in the dining room, we are always pleased. It's truly a neighborhood gem. The food and service are exceptional. The free parking is a bonus. Highly recommend this tried and true favorite.
Holiday party gathering
Lia's continues to be one of my favorite Italian restaurants, classy and comfy. Pasta is always superb. Also soup and fish. The service is outstanding, and we never feel rushed! My husband will give me a gift certificate for Christmas.
This was a very disappointing evening. Our waiter was terrible. We had to ask for water, bread, drinks multiple times. The food was very good but problems with service overshadowed the evening, we also waited 40 minutes to get our check!
It was wonderful! Although the service wasn’t fantastic, my friend and I had a wonderful time. The food is always delicious! The seasonal butternut squash ravioli ragu is a MUST try ♥️
Great food and the half price bottle of wine is a great offer.
Recommend trying the Cauliflower appetizer, it is amazing
Had a great dinner — the halibut with lemon-almond sauce was excellent. Service was friendly and helpful (though got a little scarce as the restaurant filled up).
This is a very nice neighborhood restaurant. This was our second visit with the same server. He did a nice job.
Thanksgiving evening meal. Service was impeccable;e and the food was terrific as it always is at Lia’s.
