This was very pricey for the meal. The black bean burger was good. The pita sandwich I had was OK but not worth the price.

Enjoyed dinner in this nice cozy tucked away restaurant in Lambertville. The food was enjoyable, and the staff was friendly. We sat upstairs, and were not rushed at all. I hope to return soon, and even more often once the weather warms up a bit!

First visit to this small hidden gem for lunch. Had the quiche and pumpkin soup which were both excellent and its a BYOB to boot, although they do also sell wine. The service was friendly and they did not rush us out. There is also...More

My wife and I are regulars at Lilly's. Excellent food, really cool urban vibe downstairs, and great service. They always fit us in, even when they're busy. My personal preference - get a table downstairs, it's a whole different experience.

We had dinner at Lilly's last night with friends. Three of us ordered the specials - two fish and one pork. All three were dried out, like they were sitting under the heat lamp too long, or were re-heated. Server was good. Place is nice.

Good food, pleasant staff, cozy in the winter, lovely alfresco dining in warmer months, and tucked away in an ally overlooking the canal. What could be better for winding down after a busy week?

We are creatures of habit, my wife and I. So on our nearly yearly trip to Bucks and Hunterdon Counties we always set aside an evening for Lilliys. We've been going there for dinner for a lot of years now and have never had less...More

I know that in the past they have made some local wines available to customers, but typically it's BYOB.
