An Irish-Victorian Bar and Restaurant, just steps from Times Square and numerous Broadway plays. The interior has a distinctly late 19th century feel with wooden furnishings brought from Belfast, Ireland.
Serving a wide range of domestic and international beers (30 on tap and 30 bottled). A great selection of whiskeys and wines, including some excellent wine from the Langtry Winery in California where Lillie herself owned and lived for a time.



The food is traditional Pub Fare, including soups, salads, stews, fish and steaks. Lillie's serves food from 11am - 2am. The Irish Breakfast is served all day. Brunch is served on the weekends from 10am to 4pm.

The restaurant is lovely with very special old world fixtures. Prices on food are reasonable but drinks are very expensive, especially coffe and tea.

Enjoyed late night dinner after watching a play in Broadway. The fish fry and chips were good, and the cocktail recommended by the staff was great. The good place to go.

The inside is absolutely beautiful. The salmon dish I got was buttery smooth with a crisp topping! It tasted amazing! Cheese cake was the best I ever had. Simple but tasty!! The only thing that threw me off was the 80/90's music playing in this Victorian setting. I guess that's a NYC thing! :)

I loved the atmosphere!!! We were a party of five and all ordered from the lunch menu which was a great deal. Everyone loved their food and the portions were a nice size. We ended our lunch with three different types of tea and macarons. My only wish was that the waitress was a little more attentive

Unfriendly and impatient waitress for basic requests (ie; ice for water, almond milk option for coffee) and food did not taste fresh. Felt unwelcome when I know my mom and I were respectful and kind (I work in customer service as well and understand how difficult it can be) and continued to be despite us feeling like this waitress wanted nothing to do with us. We were looking forward to our date together and unfortunately left disappointed.

We visited Lillies after a show on Broadway. We shared 3 dishes, we settled on the cheese plate, the buratta, and the beet salad. Food was fabulous and ready quickly, especially for the Sunday dinner rush. Service was quick and friendly, the drinks were unique, thoughtfully prepared, and congruent with the theme/decor of the space. We liked Lillie's so much, we went twice in the same day! We will definitely go back on our next trip to NYC

Cute place with a decent menu. We had a party of six and everyone found something to eat: Empanada, Shepherd's Pie, Chicken Pot Pie, Chicken Caesar. We heard the cheesecake was a must have so we got a piece - it was a 6/7 out of 10. Two people got the Earl Grey Creme Brulee and were ready to lick the ramekin because it was so good! All tables are high tops so beware. Not an issue for us, but could be an issue for some. The waitress was great.

The food was ok. Nothing to write home to mom about. Definitely not for the cost. The service was ok. She was a little curt at first, but we aren’t in the south, so it’s kind of expected. I had the ribeye and it was a very cheap cut and thin. The calamari was very rubbery and fishy. The burger was pretty good.

Had the Old Smokey cocktail - soooo unique and delicious. Also had the burrata and it was one of the best I have ever had. My only negative is it is not served with bread, but I did ask for bread and for a $3 charge got some really delicious ciabatta - and the ambiance is delightful.

Nice decor, very "Victorian" as described, building from early 1900's. 5:30p reservation on open table was honored and people got out in time for 7p Broadway show. We had a 8p show so passed some time walking around. ALL seats are High Top so if you can't climb up to the seat this place is not for you. Nice variety of food, Nachos very good, cocktails all fine

Lilliie's has an appealing Victorian decor. The high tables and chairs addd an interesting look and are comfortable for the amount of time one is there. There are high bench seats along the wall. The special lunch menu has fine choices and you can have a glass of house red or white wine or a few selection of beers. My chicken sandwich with a salad was delicious. I've been there on the weekend so it was nice to try the weekday lunch.

The restaurant is darling, the wait staff not so much. Make sure you are seated so both parties can see the restaurant and one of you are not just looking at a wall. There is no happy hour. We both had the grilled chicken sandwich which was good. It was okay but I would not go back.

We love this place, very lively, very noisy but such a buzz. Food menu is a little limited but the fayre is good nonetheless. Staff are attentive. The best thing is just being there, the decor is quirky, lots of young people having a great time in a loud place. If you want a secluded candlelit dinner then perhaps not, if you want a nice meal with lots of people watching and eclectic music then give it ago. We did and keep coming back for more (54 and 61 btw!)

Gave it a second chance. It got worse.

We got seated and even before we had menus, a server wanted our order seconds after we sat. We got menus. Ordered drinks and an appetizer. Both came out quickly, which was really appreciated. Then... we waited. No one came to take our order. Servers working the tables around us made sure not to talk to us. We finished our drinks and water and the appetizer, and waited. No one came for over 30 minutes. We asked for help. All we got was more waiting. Finally a server we had not seen before came and took our order which seems to be a hassle - like she was doing someone else (and us) a huge favor. Made us feel really unwanted and uncomfortable. We stayed super polite and accommodating, trying to help turn the tide, but to no avail. Service was below terrible. Seems no one enjoys working here. At all. Too bad. It seems like it could be a cool place. Two visits and it’s getting worse.
