As a resident of Louisville-I'm constantly on the lookout for new dining opportunities-and Lily's was a fantastic discovery. The 1920s golden-era Parisian ambiance, on top of a fantastically curated menu, provided for a wonderful first date experience. I will be returning-for sure.

Lilly's is a great little bistro on the east side of Louisville. Attractive décor, staff were attentive and prices were slightly upmarket but not unfair. The menu wasn't loaded w tons of options, but what was there you could tell was made really well. Our...More

We came here the Thursday before the Derby. They had a prix-fixe dinner that was very delicious, but the price was, I believe, $100 per person. Add wine to that and the bill was eye watering. Try a place that doesn't gouge during Derby Week...More
