4 of us were returning guests for dinner on a Sunday evening. We were immediately seated at our reservation time. Everything was top notch. The food and service were great. Our Server knew one of us by name. Our entrees consisted of 2 shrimp Lelli's & 2 filets along with a pasta for the table to share. The food was hot and prepared perfectly. Overall a great experience and we will be back.

This was our 2nd and last visit. The first time the waiter spilled red wine all over our table requiring us to be moved to another table. Accidents happen, so we tried again. This time, the busboy reached across me to snatch a plate from our table, spilling pepperoncini juice all over me in the process. He never even stopped to apologize or help. Later the waitress did say to contact her if there is a dry cleaning bill.
The atmosphere is nice, but on both visits the place was nearly empty. We enjoy a leisurely dinner, but this was just slow service. It took way too long to get drinks and a bread basket. Water glasses weren't refilled.
Prices are very high and a poor value. Comparable restaurants in the area give an antipasto tray, soup, salad & a side of pasta with your meal. At Steven Lelli's, a skimpy antipasto tray for 4 was $24, and you only receive either soup or salad with your entree. When it was time to pay the bill, after waiting near 10 minutes for the waitress to come back, one of our guests had to go to the bar to get change.

Awesome old school flair- totally legit credentials with 1930s origins. Take a look at all the famous people on the wall as you come in for further verification this place is an awesome destination for food, drink and experience.

Wine list had a great selection, food was incredible and refined service you just can’t find much anymore...this place defines the word “fine” for me.

Pros: steak was terrific 10 oz Filet, Good wine list, side dishes were very good. Bolganese pasta sauce very good.

Cons: We got “the Open Table, On-line Reservation” seats........Worst seats in the house. Service was sloppy. Gnocchi was over processed (questionable if really homemade). Noise levels were very high, likely due to our terrible seats.

Waiter Lorenzo is a dream.
The vibe is spectacular. A lovely experience of true fine dining from the moment the valet parks your car to the dimly lit environment with Frank Sinatra serenading, delicious wine, spectacular service, cloth table linens and nicely weighted silverware.
Everything you could possibly want. Worthy of numerous repeat visits.

This was my second time dining here and it was yet again outstanding all the way around. The ambience and the service made each experience great for me and my family! Elizabeth, our waitress, was superb. We live it here. You may get scared away by the prices but when you get your plate of food you will definitely say it was well worth the cost. I love this place and would recommend it for all occasions. Especially a very romantic setting.... like an engagement or anniversary!

Thank you Steven Lelli's staff you made our experience here once again a memorable experience!

I ordered surf & turf for our anniversary, which, btw, we haven’t been able to dine out in a few years, and I still can’t stop raving about that amazing lobster tail, best ever & ive been eating them since I was a kid a long time ago. The filet of course goes without saying is always perfect so thank you!!!!

We've never really been disappointed in our experience there, however, this time my portions were on the small side. my potato serving was small, and even though I ordered the "Petite Cut" for my steak, it was small even for petite. A few bites and it was gone. I'm sure this is not the usual experience. This will not keep us from coming back.

Our evening at Lelli's was a major disappointment beginning with the cocktails. My companion ordered Dewer's on the rocks. When served, it was so light she thought it was vodka--not much Dewar's in the glass--at $10 a pop. Her second drink was even more disappointing--LOTS of ice, very little scotch! I started with the escargot and it was just so-so. Was looking forward to the house specialty Provimi Calves Liver and they were out of it--on a Friday night??? We certainly don't plan to go back and cannot recommend it to others.
