Contemporary American
Occupying a late 1800's corner drugstore in the heart of the Magazine Street antique & shopping district, Lilette features highly acclaimed Chef John Harris' contemporary French & Italian fare.
The Main Dining Room features beautiful banquettes & red-wine colored walls to create a romantic ambiance. The outdoor patio is reminiscent of traditional New Orleans courtyards, with stone pavers, Sweet Olive and live Oak trees.
Begin your evening in our wine bar next door, Bouligny Tavern, with crafted cocktails and featured wine selections.

    Unfortunately the food was, let’s just say, unfortunate.

    Service was awkward. Our starters came almost immediately and then there was a very long pause before our mains came. Neither were anything to speak about. Nothing outstanding, just sort of blah. I did not care for having my escargot over very salty toast. I would have rathered a traditional style and with more Calvados cream sauce. I ordered my hanger steak Medium and specifically said " hot pink center." It arrived very very rare almost bloody. Waiter never checked , never asked me or my daughter how our meal was. He took two plates away from the table with 1/2 eaten on each and never suspected there might be a problem. I didn't want to get into it with my college age daughter present, but if I had been there with my husband I would have sent it back immediately. My daughter had the $32 speckled trout and the piece of fish was incredibly small with no standout flavors. Thank goodness I ordered dessert, but it is a sad day when an ice cream trio is the best thing you ate at the restaurant. I loved the decor and ambience, but the food was blah and the service was not on point at all. $150 with -0- alcohol only water and iced tea. I would not recommend Lillette at all. I'm sorry.
