The food was fine but the noise level was very loud. You could not hold a conversation. So much for getting to know your date.

Date and I arrived through the back of the restaurant and headed up to check in. We were seated promptly. Staff was very attentive and very considerate. Took my date and I 20mins to order as we were chatting getting to know each other. We picked small plates to share figuring it would be more fun. Food and ambiance was on point! Over tipped as we took up the table and time. Also over tipped in appreciation of the staff giving us space. Thank you Lilly’s!

This was not a place for us.. to dark!!! to Loud!!! could not enjoy my food because I could not see it.. so many other nice places to spend my money for a much better experience. The waiters took our dishes before we were even finished eating!!!! I was still dipping my food in the sauce...LOL relax and give us a chance to enjoy our dinner.. staff was nice, but we will not be returning.

We have been to Lilly's in the past and enjoyed it. Tis time the food was absolutely average, nothing special. Our soup came out at the end of our meal instead of as an appetizer. It was however, taken off our bill. The service was scattered and our waiter told us it was because they were super busy.

Food and service were excellent. Noise level a little too much. Lilly’s has a varied menu which should suit all tastes. Everything was cooked to perfection, served in a reasonable amount of time and the staff were attentive with being intrusive. Good experience. I recommend Lilly’s.

Everything was great! If you're looking for a quiet setting then this may not be the place. However, the food and service was outstanding. I also really appreciate that they have expended their gluten free option.

Stay Away! Service was horrible, after being seated, we waiting 20 minutes before I got up to ask our host to send a waiter over. At that point the waiter was rude even though we greeted him with a civilized hello, not showing our anger of having to wait so long. The food was well below average. So many other great places to go to in the area.

A lively spot (even on a rainy Monday) with an interesting and well-executed small plates menu. Superb grilled octopus, yummy Brussels sprouts, and nicely done oysters Rockefeller. The fine Super Tuscan by the glass was a bargain. Service was prompt, attentive, and unobtrusive, perfect for this solo diner.

Restaurant was extremely noisy, could not hear each other!
Friends enjoyed their food (although fish was a little overcooked). My food was awful! I had the butternut squash risotto with chicken. It was thick and way too rich. The chicken was dumped in the top and was roasted but was very fatty with the skin on, blugh!
Will not rush back!!

Everything on the Lilly’s menu is a hit! Their menu changes seasonally so there is always something new and delicious to try. No Lilly’s trip is complete without an order of brussels sprouts and a carafe of sangria!

Busy & lively atmosphere without feeling too crowded. Very nice ambiance, clean. Both food and service were great. Drinks were mediocre - could use improvement there.

There on a Friday night with another couple. Love the food and atmosphere but beware it is very loud and hard to hear across a booth (unless you're younger than our 50something selves...)

Food was good; waiter was helpful; noise level was incredibly loud, even early at 6pm; hostess was very surly, for no reason at all that I could detect.

Yes, I would recommend it to a friend. We were there for a business meeting which was great, but after the meal was served our waitress was nowhere to be found. It being a Tuesday, there were not a lot of people in the restaurant and thought our service would've been better. Small plates were very good and very nicely presented.

The food was fantastic. We tried the small plates, salads and pizza and everything was full of flavor. Luckily the patio was available for seating. Having walked through the bar, we felt the old musty smell was a bit much but we overlooked it for the food.

While the food at Lily’s is OK, it is no better than many restaurants nearby, and not the best meal I have had in the White Plains area. While I wanted to be seated outdoors, I was told I requested an indoor seat, which I did not. The hostess was not apologetic at all about the mix-up and seemed annoyed that I was disappointed The issue was it is incredibly dark indoors, the acoustics are awful, and they seated my party of 6 at a high table which was very uncomfortable. There are very few selections of wine by the glass, and the menu was somewhat limited for entrees, with the emphasis on small plates and pizza. Because I enjoyed my company and found the food to be tasty enough, the evening turned out OK, but I don’t think I would return given there are so many other places with better ambience, food choices and service.

Food was good. Brussel sprouts were very oily. Bread could use an upgrade.
