    Service, service, service! This bar is like a consulting business; yes they listen and in turn react appropriately. A definite if skirting the CBD.

    This was a great find as a place for drinks. Waiter was very attentive and drinks excellent. Music was a touch loud did comfortable conversation. Out food was tasty, although a few more options would make it even better!

    Nice place and interesting cocktails. Unfortunately some confusion over the bill at the end of our visit - they wouldn't let us pay as we ordered, and allowed people to pay as they left, everyone was certain they'd paid for their drinks but they insisted we still had to pay for one more drink before we left. That payment method makes it difficult to keep track when there is a big group.

    It was ok, service was good but seats were uncomfortable and the music was very dated. Drinks tasted good but very small for the price! There wasn’t much food variety either. Overall just ok probably wouldn’t go back.

    Was surprised and a little disappointed to see such a small menu of cocktails at this cocktail bar, but the drinks they make they do well I must say. The cheese and corn empanadas are delish. While our waitress was quite sweet she could answer the three questions we had about the red wine or cocktail ingredients, she might have been new but probably needs a bit more drink knowledge given the kind of bar it is..

    Dreadful food. Tasteless Barra in broth, Asian greens not Asian (Cauliflower and carrot). Service was good. Diss appointed overall as it was over $200 for 2 people.
    Lily BlacksResponded on 22 October 2022
    Hi there, We believe you may have left this review on the wrong page, we do not serve Barra in Broth or 'Asian Greens'. Sorry the restaurant you went to disappointed, we hope you enjoyed your experience at Lily Blacks.
