Lilllies is a pleasant, though not great Italian place. Small dining area and bar offers drinks and food. Watermelon salad was interesting, with pomegranate molasses, walnuts and cheese. Seemed to swim in oil. Would not order again. Chicken piccata was ok and a comfortable portion,...More

A quiet Italian restaurant and bar. I had a delicious meal and glass of red wine. So good! Service and atmosphere were great, too. It was nice to eat in a quiet restaurant for a change.

Lillie's has an intimate feeling with soft background music where quiet conversations can take place over a exquisite meal.

Nice restaurant, not a typical breakfast restaurant. The food is very good. I had eggs benediction with salmon with avocado. The eggs were spot on. The fresh fruit was nice too.
