in a light creamy paprika sauce over homemade Spaetzle "dumplings"
slow-braised beef in a Hungarian paprika sauce over Spaetzle
Scampi style with roasted garlic, tomatoes, lemon & basil over spaghetti
Food was delicious and service was excellent.
Mediocre food, it's quite obvious that there is no Chef in the restaurant.
Ambience and service ok.
I won't come back.
A little Hungarian in our own back yard
Can’t wait to go back !
Got there and the hostess/owner(?) made us wait 15 minutes while she was having a personal conservation with a couple at a table. Thank goodness for the bus girl, who after speaking with the hostess/owner(?) for permission to seat us at the open table. Eye contact was made on several occasions and yet was completely ignored. I found the food was average. we had the octopus special for an appetizer which was very good. the fillet of soul was mediocre. i had the veal chop which came under cooked. Service from a wait staff perspective was good. All in all, the food is average at best and i would confer the restaurant a pass.
We had the avocado shrimp tower appetizer and the veal ragu over gnocchi and the chicken paprikash and everything was great. The owners were very personable and the service was terrific. Would definitely come back.
Excellent restaurant. Everything is delicious! Great service. Friendly and accommodating owners!
Love this place
Lili's has the best food around. All ingredients fresh
A perfect neighborhood spot . They are warm and friendly . Food and service were good . Tables were spaced far apart . We will return .
LILI’S Bistro NEVER disappoints. One of our favorite restaurants
Great to find Hungarian food in Suburban NJ. Great food and excellent service at a very good price.
LOVE this restaurant. One of my favorites
food was mediocre at best. service was ok. i would try it again to see if its any better. if not, wouldn't return.
1st time there, varied menu selections. Good service, nicely done food. BYOB a plus.
Nice Cristy bread would give it an extra star!
Great place for dinner! Been going there for years and never disappoints. Lili's Bistro is one of my favorites!
Pasta and chicken dinner portions very small. Dinner took forever to come. Ate outside so rarely checked on. Chicken dinner had no asparagus and orecchiette with broccoli rabe had broccoli! Unacceptable.
Excellent as always.
Thanksgiving meal was fantastic.
It’s always a pleasure to dine here. The food is always outstanding and the service is absolutely the best
Ordered the prime rib special. $38 was way overpriced considering it contained way too much fat. The mushrooms and potatoes and vegetable were good but disappointed with the meet. Service and owner are great. Clams were plentiful and good.
One suggestion-don’t rip people off with the specials...big turn-off.
Excellent food and excellent service. A gem of a restaurant!
The grilled vegetable sandwich is really delicious!!!
Good was not as good as usual.
We met another couple for dinner. Having heard good things about Lili’s we wanted to try it.. Glad we did our dinners were excellent and all 4 of us enjoyed. I loved the variety of dishes the last were available- Italian staples but also Hungarian Goulash..We will be back!
Very good clams as an appetizer and a generous portion. The salmon fettuccine was a little too heavy on the cream sauce. Otherwise it was very good. Tone down the cream and you’re there!!!!
Been going here for years and I have never been disappointed with my food or the service. We both had the special, Bronzino fish and the preparation and taste were excellent. The service was seamless and we never felt rushed.
Very nice ambiance for double-dating!
Lobster with fettuccini special was tough and overcooked....$29.
The chicken paprikash is amazing!
Food and service were excellent.
Felt a little rushed but it was Valentines day so all good. Tables were a little close so hard to manuver around but again Valentines day.
Food was good not great. Fact that it's a BYOB is good. Service was good for me , not rushed. Staff was attentive. It should be noted that all is ala carte. Portions were adequate.
I went to Lili’s Bistro for a friend’s birthday. We were warmly greeted and the food was fresh and delicious. My friends had dietary restrictions and they went out of their way to make sure their requests were met.
Great place for dinner. We all had the Bronzino and we all loved it. First time here however friends of mine have been there many times and said nothing but great things about the place. We will be back.
3 for 3. Each time I have tried something new and have not been disappointed. The halibut special was outstanding. The service is friendly and the cost is reasonable. We will be back.
Food is good and very reasonably priced. Plenty of parking.
Great food! just heads up on a couple of things:
1. It’s BYOB - didn’t know until we got there
2. Long wait times, I guess thats European service for you? Our sitting time was really 2 hours
Because it was Christmas Eve, the restaurant was very busy.the service was somewhat slower than normal, which is to be expected on such a busy evening. The wait staff was extremely pleasant and apologize for some of the delay, which we had no problem with. Food was excellent.
Very disappointed with the goulash, VERY small portion! and meat was not very tender . Vegetable farfalle was very good, apple strudel and pistachio tartufo were delicious, specials were overpriced!
This was our second time and we brought family members with us this time. The amazing service and food from our first visit was repeated again. The selection was great, the taste and portion size were on point. We have found our new go to restaurant. Don’t ever change.
This restaurant is a neighborhood gem. The food was fresh and service was good. We had the avocado marque as an appetizer and the specials —- lamb shank and branzino fish. For dessert we had the chocolate mousse cake. Everything was scrumptious. We plan to go again.
The food was fresh and delicious. The owners were very friendly.
