After dining at the other Metro Detroit Lelli's locations, this was a disappointment. The food was mediocre. The setting and ambiance in the outside terrace was very nice.

Everything was great until we turned down the $900 bottle of wine, then dinner dragged out and service was abysmal. The decor doesn’t match what you see on the website - between the Sinatra on a loop and kitschy, 50s Vegas feel, our experience didn’t live up to the hype.

Table right outside the kitchen door. Should never be a table there for anyone-noisy and detracts from ambience. Could not read the menu. Way too dark. Half the party showed first and was seated before us. OK. But hostess couldn’t find our table. Told us to walk around and find them. One person ordered veal dish. Was told 1/2 hour later that there was no veal available. Then came back 15 minutes later and said it was available. Unnecessary LONG wait for the meal. Goof thing the company was very enjoyable. Only thing that saved the night. Won’t go back.

Lelli's is a Detroit classic Italina restaurant and I had the pleasure to dine at the original in downtown as well as the newer location in Auburn Hills on a number of occasions. This location had the same quality of food, everything was outstanding! The service did not match the meal and the facilities felt a bit tired. Overall worth it to go for the food.

We just got back to Lelli's for the first time in months and we left wondering why it took so long! The food was outstanding, the quantity was plenty and even though they were slightly under staffed (due to COVID) they managed to give us very good service. The highlight was the Happy Hour menu which we really liked.

Lelli’s was struggling,like so many other restaurants, with low staff. However, they let you know this when you arrive and the waitstaff that was there worked very hard to give us the best possible service. The food is more than worth any wait. Best zip sauce and minestrone soup in the area. Go and enjoy!!

Although understaffed, we were notified as we were seated. They were kind, efficient, friendly. The busier, Jordan was exceptional and we gave him a NICE cash tip. Patti our main server was very attentive although she was very busy. She was nicely compensated!! “Super Mario” stopped by our table which was a nice touch that isn’t often done any more.
We hadn’t been there In Years, and were quite pleased. Won’t wait so long next time…

The food was good. But, for the price of the entrees (mine was $41), I expected it to be excellent and more gourmet. Serving size was quite generous.
The salad that came with my entree tasted good. However, it was simply mixed greens, and a few garbonzo beans and three cherry tomatoes. I expect more at this price point. Maybe cut the serving size slightly and add more ingredients to the salads or spice up the recipe?
The carrot cake was good. However, there was an odd strawberry drizzle of sauce over it that was not necessary addition and wrecked some of the flavor. Don't do this! Serving size was generous.
I ordered coffee with dessert and was not offered a refill, server disappeared after we paid our bill. The coffee cups were small, coffee was great and left me wanting more with my large piece of cake.

Nice restaurant. Good food. Friendly staff. Table for two was up against back of other sectioned off group table which was fine …. but was just way too dark. Some sort of strip light would have made all the difference. Even a candle. Got tiresome using our iPhones to see where the food was …. and awkward to even see to cut it.

Made Open Table reservation about a week in advance based upon description of outdoor dining and placed that request in reservation for health reasons. Also was celebrating a birthday and a reservation, also highlighted on the reservation.. Upon check in, was informed there was no outdoor dining that evening. I would have hoped to receive earlier notification of that so as to make alternate arrangements. Weather was fine. Table assigned was in a separate room for our party of 5, also got with another table, which had a party of 6. No Covid precautions were being taken by staff or patrons. While the food was very good, what made this night a disaster for our party, the noise level from the other party of 6 was so loud that it reverberated through that room and made conversation at our table almost impossible. I am on the road about 250 - 275 nights a year, travel internationally, even though Covid, and this was one of the worst dinners I have had. The staff seemed not to care, long established property with signage at checkin highlighting patience due to staffing and expect bad service. Slow service I understand but we should have asked to be moved when the situation became intolerable. My guess though, with the way we were greeted, attitudes of the seating staff, lack of Covid concerns for protocols, it would not have mattered, more take it or leave it was the vibe.

I was excited to bring my husband back here for his birthday but was quickly disappointed I had.
The staff was setting up for an event during our meal. They had so much commotion going on that it was very difficult even relax and enjoy our meal.
This also took the attention of our waiter who did not pay us much attention.
The food was ok but not what we had had in the past and quite frankly disappointing.

The bathroom was in disarray and toilets had not been cleaned this left me feeling as though the entire restaurant need a good deep clean. This was not what you should see when try to enjoy a $300 meal.

Would not recommend.

This is the strangest review I ever wrote. 4 of us Sat on patio and we were having a very nice dinner when immediately next to us the gentleman had a major medical event which resulted in a doctor and my wife a nurse dealing with it until EMS and Police came. They cleared out the patio told everyone to go inside. We were not finished with our meal but what we did have was outstanding. Frankly we were more than surprised when our waiter handed our check to us for the full meal for payment. We paid it and left. A night we will never forget, though we would like to.

While I know restaurants bare struggling to find help, they seamed overwhelmed with the handful of tables occupied. Our server worked her tail off all night, she didn’t seal to be supported very well. And with so few tables occupied I can’t explain it.

I brought a work group of 14 people for an after seminar event, and we had a delightful time. The food and service were wonderful! We were seated in the Wine Room so had an alcove space where we were able to be slightly isolated from the regular hustle or bustle in the general restaurant space.

The ambiance was lovely; the service was fast and accurate, and the food - oh my goodness (WOW)! I had the filet mignon and it melted in my mouth!

I would highly recommend this restaurant!
