I went to Lila for my 45th Birthday - I ordered a Greek Salad and I was not impressed. My daughter ordered the mushroom veggie burger and said that she could not taste the mushroom. My husband ordered a bowl and said all ingredients were bland. We paid a lot of money and were disappointed.
Amazing place with fantastic vegan 🌱 options
Delicious food...I would go again and again...to try everything....cauliflower penne...fabulous! The vegan mushroom burger looked great...the sweet potatoes were also great!
Thank you for the wonderful evening!
Great healthy delicious alternative
Our new favorite
Brilliant meal - so tasty and fresh. We’ll definitely be back again
The food here is so original and well prepared and presented. Healthly options abound on the menu. Refreshingly unique.
Lovely! Great food, excellent service and wonderful food and drink.
AMAZING! The food was great and the vibe was awesome.
This is my favorite Sarasota eatery! I love the huge selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes, and the meat and fish options so that everyone can enjoy some delectable food.
I’m a carnivore who took my Vegan Birthday-GF by her choice. I expected a menu that would be ok, but not great. It turned out to be anything but!
Everything from the service to the pricing was excellent, but the food was some of the best we’ve had, both her choices and mine.
I will go back anytime, feeling I receive a broader, excellent menu than she gets at regular restaurants with me.
One of the most pleasant surprises I’ve had in SRQ in the two years I’ve been here...
We love this restaurant! The food is amazing and the people are so nice!
We will be back...SOON! It was amazing! If you’re plant based, especially!
Lila is doing a good job of outdoor dining during this difficult time.v and the food is terrific! I had the Avocado Toast and it's the best ever.
First time there. Very Covid safe setting. Inside was not crowded and servers wore masks. Outside seating was available as well The food was great. I had the mushroom burger and it was large but after eating it ALL, I didn't feel stuffed, just happily full. The bread and butter is must. It was excellent GF bread. My cappuccino with oat milk was also very good.
Great place! Very good menu, with a good selection for non vegan.
My vegan son enjoyed it very much! I would recommend it to vegetarians and vegans. For the rest of us, it was OK, but a pricey experience.
Best vegan entrees around! The service is professional and friendly. The food is so delicious. I invited 3 non- vegans for a tasty dinner and they were all very impressed. The menu has something for everyone, you can add protein of choice to any dish. Overall the 4 of us had a wonderful night out and some tasty desserts Togo to finish Off the wonderful Lila experience! I Can’t wait to go back!
Wonderful! The food was out of this world. Would definitely recommend it!
My wife and I were visiting from out of town for her birthday and wanted to have a special night! When I asked the hotel concierge about a VEGAN restaurant she recommended LiLa. We got to the front door and were kindly greeted by the hostess and promptly taken to a table of our choice. My wife has celiac disease so we let the server know that everything needed to be Gluten Free as well as Vegan and she made suggestions and even allowed us to swap the naan bread that came with the dish for their excellent (best gluten free bread we’ve ever had) Homemade gf bread! The server was very kind and knowledgeable on all menu items and dietary restrictions and preferences! Lila really impressed us in all aspects and are considering going back to Sarasota just to dine with Lila again! 10/10 stars!
excellent vegan food
Absolutely delicious. Lots of healthy options, including vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options. If you frequent the restaurants of downtown Sarasota and you haven't been to Lila, you're missing out. A lot of culinary creativity going on here, fusion dishes and all sorts of goodies. Great service. You must try.
Excellent lunch! First time eating inside in a restaurant all wait staff had masks.
Awesome as always
Great food. Good service. Gabrielle was lovely. Definitely would return!
Menu looked great but was very under executed that night. I’d give it another shot.
Good, clean, organic food prepared well. Quality of food is wonderful, sometimes preparation misses (such as the potatoes that came with our meal - tasteless!). Can get noisy but we were there early and it was fine - were able to talk with our friends and hear each other without any problems. Somewhat pricey for what you get, but I am ok paying more for quality ingredients, which is what you get here.
Very fresh and tasty
Yes, we will go back but would make other dinner selections. The Hong Kong Noodles were good but the Falafel Bowl was not. Falafel was mushy and tasteless. We couldn't finish it. It was taken off the bill so that was noteworthy. Service was great. We will go back.
First time diners. Exceptional! Will be a regular!
I like this restaurant. I seem to come here every time I visit Sarasota. It always feels fresh and wholesome. The avocado toast with rye bread is my favorite
Good food and nice atmosphere
Food and service was awesome but don’t order a scoop of ice cream on any dessert. It was $5 which I was willing to pay had it been an actual scoop. It was about 1 tbsp if ice cream. Otherwise, everything was top notch. I would go back again
food and service spectacular Menu has many selections
It was very nice - decent service and food. Not just vegan which was better for all involved
We were looking for some good vegetarian food options, and Lila delivered superbly. Phillip took great care of us and helped us enjoy a wonderful dinner and a nice bottle of wine. I highly recommend Lila's for a fine dining experience.
Our appetizers were not very interesting-eggplant and a cauliflower dish. The udon entree was outstanding as was the pasta special. Desserts were excellent.
Great vegan specials, desserts, and mains. Can't wait to go back!
The food is good, but it is overpriced and they up charge you for EVERYTHING. $17 for a falafel bowl? No free refills on drip coffe? No thank you...
