Lillies can get lost in the shuffle -- half way between the Woodley and Cleveland Park restaurant rows. I have seen three earlier places in this location fold because they could not attract enough business from the neighborhood or nearby hotels. Lillies has done better...More

We stopped by here on the way back to our hotel from the zoo. It has a pleasant outdoor patio. The food was good, if not exceptional, but expensive. We had a good bottle of wine, which was reasonably priced. Service was good. We enjoyed...More

We stopped at Lillies today after visiting the zoo. My son had the chicken Parmesan and my husband and I ordered salads. Everything was really good and portions were big. Service was a tad slow. But we weren't in a hurry, so it wasn't bothersome...More

Very slow and unpleasant staff. None of them told us their names and took our orders with a sense of urgency. Couldn't split the check. The group who came in after us left way before is. Food was pretty good.

Lilllies is a pleasant, though not great Italian place. Small dining area and bar offers drinks and food. Watermelon salad was interesting, with pomegranate molasses, walnuts and cheese. Seemed to swim in oil. Would not order again. Chicken piccata was ok and a comfortable portion,...More

Arrived about 12:30 on Saturday, and said we were early for a 1:00 reservation. The hostess (owner?) asked if we reserved through Open Table, which was perhaps a problem for her. No- I'd called. This seemed quite baffling to her. She said something about having...More
