    Excellent Food

    I have been here three times, and each time the food has been great. Fresh, authentic middle-eastern food. The cocktails are really good too. Kind of inconspicuous from the outside, but very nice lounge-y atmosphere inside. I will definitely be going back!

    Very impressed!

    Dinig at ilili was a great experience. We got to the restaurant early and had a drink at the bar. The bartenders were friendly and helped us decide on drinks and then even went over things on the menu. They gave us ideas on what to order and even though I wouldn't necessarily have ordered these items we did. They really knew what they were talking about because the food was amazing. Our waiter was just as friendly and they even had a sommelier to tell us about the wines they had on special that evening. The restaurant was more trendy than I had expected, but in a good way. I loved the atmosphere and will definitely be going back! Oh - and if you go there for brunch/lunch, I would suggest the bloody martini! So tasty!!

    Awesome food, weird service

    I was very impressed with the quality, portions and flavors of the food. My dining partner and I are both discriminant Middle Eastern foodies and were shocked to find authentic Lebanese cuisine in this neighborhood. One negative-- the server spilled water all over the table and me, and his reaction was "Sh*t...uh, sorry." It was hilarious, but completely unfiltered.

    My friends and I tried ilili out for restauarant week and loved it. The food was amazing. Our server Vanessa was so helpful, quick, and organzied. The sommelier was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. If you're looking for a fun night out with friends or a date night, this place is perfect!

    the noise will kill you

    we were a table of 7. we could not hear each other unless we were shouting. this included the person sitting next to me. the price fixed menu was very good. the food was very good although the portions were small. the service was okay but not overly attentive. since we ordered 3 bottles of very expensive wine and they added on 20% tip due to the number of people at the table, the waitstaff should have been better.

    Great restaurant

    Have now enjoyed about 5 lunches there and todays just was perfect! A cold strawberry mint tea, the great funky ice cream, and in between a choice assortment of mezze. Hearty in the cold weather but even better in the summer. Keep up the good work!
