We were seated right away to a lovely table. Our server was very attentive but hard to understand. My friend who had gluten and dairy allergies enjoyed it knowing that there was nothing to work about as far as cross contamination.
The did look fresh but lacked flavor. I had the burrito with chicken which looked nice even though it was bland. The sweet potatoe appetizer was very tasty. This is a wonderful place if you have allergies otherwise there's to many other places that have fresh flavorful meals to select from in Sarasota.
During a trip to Sarasota we made dinner Reservation at Lila. Menu is mostly vegetarian and vegan.
We absolutely loved their version of the volcano role. It was the special and amazing.
My boyfriend had the hanger steak. The steak was cooked to perfection and the vegetables were great. First time having white asparagus. I tried it and was great.
I had the salmon. It was good. But for a second trip would definitely try one of their vegan meals because I think where they shine.
First timers but we’ll be back!
We have enjoyed visiting Lila's each and every time we have gone. Vegi options are interesting and delicious, and a few non-vegi options to balalance menu.
A very pleasant surprise. Never realized eating healthy could taste so good.
Wonderful place for vegan dining.
Our server was very aloof although with a smile on her face. She didn't know answers to menu questions and when she said she'd find out, it took her 10 mins to return not even remembering to return with an answer or that she did not finish taking that order. Overall from ordering, our 4 lunches took a solid 40 mins. 40 mins for stir fry, salad bowl, burrito, & a mushroom burger. We almost got up & left it was so slow when there were only 2 other tables with patrons.
Food was extremely bland as very, if any salt used. The red sauce in the burrito did not seem to be cohesive as it was a sweet fruity ketchup sauce with the rice, bean, & avocado burrito. Dip/sauce accompanying the falafel also had no taste. The almond falafel was good but otherwise food was a miss and definitely not worth the long wait.
Always outstanding! The food is excellent, service impeccable and we will return often! Thank you!!
The staff at Lilo’s is always welcoming and friendly. Food is served nice and hot, and is consistently very good. Plenty of outdoor seating, while inside is well socially-distanced. Variety of food is exceptional, from gluten-free and vegan selections to steak and chicken. Something for everyone! The chocolate tart dessert is divine!
Great spot for fresh and healthy meals. Creative menu.
Food incredible. We came on busy night and understaffed so lots of waiting, but all worth it!
Our waitress was GREAT!! The food was really good and it was refreshing to have good vegan options. The only feedback would be to lower the lights for dinner and add some background music for more evening ambiance.
Imaginative and really tasty! Good value, great service
Wonderful unique dishes and very attentive service.
My date and I loved the food here. Interesting, unique, delicious creations. The grilled tofu was outstanding. They have a small well designed wine list. Highly recommend
Awesome food and INCREDIBLE service! Food combinations are imaginative and inspired.
The flavors are tasty and unique The best part is that you can be sure that whatever you order is fresh and healthful. We lunched outdoors on a beautiful Spring Day. No one rushed us but the service was attentive.
Pre opera dinner
We were a group of 3 for a late dinner. Quality and presentation were excellent. 2 vegan and one vegetarian entrees as well as a couple of apps. Short but excellent wine list.
We have eaten there a few times and would highly recommend for vegetarians and vegans but the food is pleasing as well for omnivores
Had a business meal with a friend who was a vegetarian. All of us loved our healthy and tasty meals!!
We ate outside. Everything was great!
one of our favorite restaurants in Sarasota! My wife is gluten and dairy free - I am not. Lila is one of the few restaurants in the country where we can have beautifully prepared, tasty, fresh and healthy food. Great for lunch or dinner. You can stay the vegetarian course but you can also have fish or chicken with your meal. Keep up the great cooking!
Always good food and wait staff
Birthday. Server was above and beyond excellent.
Really good food, took gf there for Valentine's day, would have never known it was vegan food!
Excellent selection of vegan options; one of the best I’ve seen anywhere! And everything tasted great! Add in excellent service and this place is a winner.
The food is always consistent and delicious! Best of all it’s is healthy dining and you don’t ever feel guilty.
Lovely, inspired food. Many vegetarian and vegan options, but a few “traditional” items available also. EVERY. Single. Thing. Was absolutely delicious. Attentive waitstaff. Nice atmosphere. Highly recommend. Good for lunch, too!
Place is amazing! Food is fantastic! Would definitely go back!
Amazing. Our new Sunday favorite.
Excellent veg options and our server explained it all enthusiastically. Brussel sprouts to start and broccoli soup and both were excellent. I had the mixed veggie bowl for the entree and my wife had the special curry with broccoli dish and both were excellent. Fresh flavors, filling, great texture on the tofu. We also had the blueberry “cheesecake” dessert and it was also great- chewy granola crust and the filling tasted almost like a real cheesecake and was not too sweet and really smooth. Would definitely come here again and we are not vegetarians.
Our first time there, the food was exceptional and to add to that, our server was extremely pleasant and conscientious. A must visit and great location!
Great vegan/vegetarian food! You want to take your time and experience every bite at Lila! 👍🏼👍🏼
Was a Anniversary Dinner. Had a wonderful time with delicious meal and dessert.
First time. Everything was amazing.
Peaceful and quiet lunch with a friend. Service was outstanding and the food was delicious. It’s a favorite lunch spot for me!
Wonderful Christmas Eve dinner. Great service, food & wine
Lila’s is a gem in Sarasota - especially, but not only, for those with GF or vegan dining needs/preferences. Fresh,
Local ingredients abound in the menu choices. Staff is extremely friendly and outdoor seating is a great option for those who want to bring their pup to dinner.
It's not that easy to find a vegan/vegetarian-friendly restaurant that has enough on the menu to satisfy the non-vegans, too. Lila does a good job of offering plenty for both the plant- and non-plant based eaters.
A quiet space off Main in Sarasota, the staff are always friendly, the food is good, there is a nice selection of beer and wine to complement the menu.
One of my favorite spaces for a good meal.
