Hubby & i went for dinner...1st time at this restaurant about 30 minutes before closing time on a Saturday night.

We love going to this restaurant because it has some of the best Ukrainian food available in the Rochester area. My wife's family is Ukrainian, so we like going out for the pierogies and the cabbage-wrap rolls (I don't have a clue how you pronounce or spell that one!). Lillian's has all these specialties in spades, as her background has... More

We came here for the first time last week with a gift certificate that we have had for several months. Boy do I wish we had come sooner. The food was delicious, the service was great and the staff was so friendly. We had the lamb shank and linguini with white clam sauce and both were excellent. We also had... More

My wife and I went here for dinner. Our first time to visit Lillian's. My wife had the chicken parmigiana which was a huge portion. She was also happy with the quality of her dinner. I had chicken Kiev with roasted potatoes. The portion was huge and the chicken Kiev tasted great. The service was attentive and efficient. We will... More

Hidden in a corner of strip mall, but so worth looking for. The food is excellent, the atmosphere relaxed, and the service is attentive. Makes an everyday dinner feel like a special occasion. And by the way, the prices are incredibly reasonable, even lower before 6 on a weekend. Our new family favorite!

We love it here! Lillian treats us like family, Constantine is an attentive server and the food is always excellent! It's a busy little pace, so I might recommend a reservation, especially on the wk-end. The seafood bisque is a must!

Located in a strip mall, I had driven by it many times without even noticing it. We went there because of a coupon book we had purchased. Nice inside with a very attentive staff and owner. Because of marriage, they have both Italian and Ukrainian dishes on the menu. We both had very good mixed drinks, and both of our... More

Lillian's has become one of our favorite restaurants in the Rochester area.. Located in a small strip mall, the outside does not look very impressive, but inside is tastefully decorated with a romantic atmosphere. This is a family run restaurant and everyone is exceptionally friendly. The owner, Lillian, comes around to each table with a friendly greeting and always remembers... More

We came here for dinner this weekend, having only eaten lunch here before. It really is a family-run restaurant, as Lillian stopped by our table to chat, and her son was our waiter. I had the borscht soup, which was very good, although different from how I pictured it to be. For my main course, I had a combination platter... More

I brought my parents here on a visit; They really enjoyed it. They both had Italian dishes (pasta, etc) while I tried the perogies. We were the only ones dining, which was a little strange, but the service was friendly and the owner even came out to check on us. The food took longer than I expected based on us... More
