LiLLiES Italian Restaurant & Bar
When the weather is warm, diners can relax around mosaic tables on the terrace patio. On cooler days, the hardwood floors, candlelight and exposed brick inside make for a snug retreat. Brunch is served on both Saturdays and Sundays, and offers options for health-conscious patrons, such as a Greek yogurt parfait, and for those looking to indulge—say, in the Nutella-smothered French toast.

Food was just so so. Not worth going again. Service was good.
Good food. We didn’t know we’d be limited to brunch so we were limited in choices, but the food we did get was very good and the staff were nice.
This is a charming, country inn located on one of Washington's major through streets. The couple who owns it knows how to make patrons feel embraced the minute they walk in. The wait staff is professional and personable. The food is very good and moderately priced.
It's a joy to go there.
Had good, friendly service and good food. The rack of lamb was especially delicious.
We stopped by here as it was the closest breakfast spot to the zoo, with no expectations. And we could not have been happier with our choice. Our breakfast was phenomenal!
The price for my date salad was very high for the quality of the ingredients and the presentation. Goat cheese tasted more like whipped cream cheese, berries and dates quite hard and the viniagrette not at all tasty. Disappointing all the way around although the service was quite good.
I had a good experience at Lillie’s. The drestaurant was not crowded on Labor Day. Food was really tasty. I had the Tuscan pappardelle and a lemon tart and whites chocolate cake for dessert. Service was also great!
Always love this restaurant. The staff is so pleasant and with picky restrictive diets in my family the chef always accommodates.
Very good experience
We really enjoyed this restaurant. The ambiance was wonderful; quiet and cozy but a welcoming atmosphere. Serving staff was great! Attentive but not intrusive. The food was fresh and delicious . We started with the avocado freti and had the tour of Italy and branzino. Definitely a new fave
Food and service where excellent. Only issue was the noise from a tree removal behind the restrurant while we ate. Would go back again in a minute next time in town!
This is a really nice neighborhood restaurant great location. They have a great patio and front for dining and a friendly staff with very good food. It’s not fancy but it has an extensive menu and it’s well priced
The food was not great. We got the Eggs Benedict and Brioche French Toast with a side of fruit. A lot of the food tasted as if it were frozen and reheated. The food was also very bland. The fruits had a refrigerated taste, some of the blue berries were not edible. Presentation wise, the food looked good. And the restaurant itself featured a cozy ambiance. But the food was disappointing.
We are lunch after the zoo and it was, well, meh - they have kids meals but, even at lunchtime, it was $12 for plain noodles (seriously?). Oh well.
Not the best experience. We had a large party, paid a lot of money, but it was only a mediocre experience.
We had an excellent client dinner. The private event space is worth it. Our guests felt special and the waiter Larry was fantastic! Thank you LiLLiES for an amazing event!
We loved this quaint, neighborhood restaurant near our hotel (Omni Shoreham). The food was delicious and server was very knowledgeable regarding the food/wine. Don’t miss the lemon/marscapone cake for dessert! Delicious and a good value for DC!
We sat on their lovely (covered!) patio and had a great brunch! Food was tasty, and it wasn't very crowded- unusual for the area!
Honestly, I’ve not been so disappointed in a dc restaurant lately. The food was edible at best and way overpriced. The bread was stale and food was clearly from frozen. We decided to try a new random place in the neighborhood and now I know better.
Service was good and tentative. My food was excellent as well Andy tasty drinks.
The number in my party changed multiple times. They were very accommodating
Enjoyed a tasty lunch on the comfortable patio. Bloody Mary could have been more flavorful but the salad and dessert were delicious.
Great prices! Food is good. They were short a server and the kitchen was down some people, but they were kind and courteous even when they were running around like crazy. I will definitely go back.
Their service and ambiance is what makes us coming back every time we are in DC.
Very attractive setting only a few blocks away from the Washington Zoo. Food was good and restaurant accommodating to making changes to the menu
Brought my parents here when they were in town for the weekend. Great food, attentive but not intrusive service, relaxing atmosphere. I had to knock down for noise. There was a very large table (16-20 people) smack dab in the middle of the restaurant so it was very loud. It was quiet before they arrived. Too bad there isn’t a side room for large parties.
Always a good neighborhood choice
Enjoyed a quiet dinner with great service and good food. The value for money is excellent. I recommend.
Food was very good. Casual, family feel. Service was a little slow. Did not care for the complimentary bread (dry and crunchy). My "Tour of Italy" meal was scrumptious and filling - fair pricing.
Always very pleasant. Beautiful decor, welcoming from the minute you walk through the door. Excellent for dates, business meals, reunions. It is my go-to default spot for out-of-town guests both personal and professional.
I was a little disappointed in the food when I ate there twice during a recent trip to DC. The vegetable lasagna seemed to be all pasta and cheese rather than having many vegetables. I would have preferred less cheese and for the dish to have been less gooey.
I had quesadilla's for lunch a few days before. They were ok but I didn't feel there was much detectable chicken in tortillas. The taste was just ok.
I love the location, the ambiance ,and that it is family owned. I really enjoyed my meal on my first visit but the last two visits, the food wasn't as satisfying.
Great food, fantastic service! Thank you !
Sry friendly place with many delicious menu choices. Highly recommended!
Though labeled an Italian restaurant the menu offers more than just traditional dishes. There is something for everyone. The seafood dish was scrumptious and the portion size was perfect! Stuffed mushrooms were tasty, but the portion size was small for the price. Service was excellent. Outdoor seating is available as well.
Our group had a wonderful experience!! Attentive and friendly staff with delicious food!
The place was under staffed and we received all wrong orders took them 40 mins after being seated to be waited on.
Generally high quality food but when they are very busy (Sunday brunch) quality declines.
Delicious food & great service for a large party. Highly recommend.
The food was nothing special. I’ve had better at chain restaurants. I won’t be going back.
