The food is good, but the resturant is not a southern place to eat. The menu is full of French dishes and seafood. The only thing Southern is is the location. Also, its the kind of place that looks down on you if you arent in evening attire at dinner. Prices are high for the area. We wont be going back.

My wife wanted to take me out for my birthday. We had been wanting to go to Lilly's so we deciced to try there. WOW! We were very pleased. The ambience was delightful. The server was cheerful and helpful and knew the menu well and the flavor of the items. He advised us well and we were very happy with our selections. We have been to several upscale restaurants in the area before but none compared to Lilly's. We had been loking for a place to take our out of town friends when they are here and now we found have it. And the desserts are all made there. We shared the chocolate lava cake and the strawberry creme boulee. Thank you Lilly's for a great evening.

We went there for lunch. The service was attentive and the food was pretty good. The restaurant was a nice mix between comfortable and a little upscale.

lilly's was doing farm-to-table before it was cool. you won't find more local, fresher ingredients anywhere else. consistently incredible offerings. not stuffy in the least. the service is impeccable - they are really glad you're there. have a full dinner or enjoy their kentucky tapas menu, expanded on tuesday nights.

This is my favorite restaurant in Louisville. Kathy Cary designs beautiful and delicious food. Terrific for a romantic night out, dessert & drinks with friends, a celebratory dinner, etc. The special-menu nights (bourbon tastings, wine tastings, etc) are also terrific. A meal like this would cost twice as much in many cities.
