Lovely food and cocktails. Will come here again. Really enjoyed it
Lovely evening meal in Lilly’s. Food and service excellent and a nice atmosphere
We booked in at 18:15 and we were greeted by the male manager. He asked us if we wanted food and drinks or just drinks. We told him we would like food and drinks. He then stated that they had stopped serving food because loads of people arrived late and they wanted food so we would be put at the back of the line and the food wouldn’t be ready before 8. We explained that a phone call would have been nice to let us know before arriving in as food was what we were coming for. We asked could we even get a starters- we were told no. We asked could we get a desert and he replied that it shouldn’t be a problem but he would find out which he didn’t. We asked was our table still reserved he pointed down to a table and told “the table with the candle” we were not even brought or shown to the table. In the end we just sat down and had two drinks- no apology or anything. So basically if you order a table after 6:15, you won’t get food. I received emails etc to confirm we were coming which I did and that stated nothing about food not been served after 6:15, the email even had the food menu attached. Over previous months we attended Lilly’s, one occasion been a birthday party and we put away a lot of money. On these occasions service was excellent but I feel we were let down last night.
Great food and service, well worth a visit. Nice warm atmosphere
Fabulous food and drinks . Our server Niamh was excellent
Food was decent but overpriced.
Food was amazing, Staff were really attentive and friendly, great value for money and the perfect place for a date. 10/10
Absolutely amazing night in Lillys last night. Every member of staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, service was seamless. Best curry I've had in a long time! Fair play Lillys
Great food,great choice,excellent service.We will be back.
We had a lovely evening of eating, drinking and being merry! Service was great, very attentive staff and food was delicious. I was a little concerned it wouldn't be having been there the previous Saturday night when the service was not as good, so I was glad to see that it was back to normal. Such great value and ambience, making our little Christmas night out wonderful. Thanks everyone
Unfortunately our recent visit to Lilly's was not good, didn't have our booking, shown to wrong table, service was very slow, I think we were forgotten about until we had to wave and make hand signals. The food when it arrived was okay. It was such a disappointment considering we were there the week before when service and food was excellent.
Food was very good but as for service it was appalling. Waited 30 minutes to get order taking and when it was took we ordered starters and main course, we stated we wanted starters on there own and they were brought out with main. We wanted to order another chip and no one came too us, it wasn't busy as this time and there was plenty staff on. We were getting charged 15.50 for nuggets and chips which was very expensive too. Won't be returning.
The staff were amazing so friendly and attractive and you could have a laugh with them which is always lovely.
Lovely setting very relaxing
But unfortunately the large table beside us were extremely noisy this spoilt it a bit because you could hardly here your partner when you were trying to have a conversation.
Nothing to do with the restaurant really but maybe tables for 2 would be better not placed beside large group tables.
Food was fabulous starters was amazing chicken ceaser salad and the sticky toffee pud to die for.
Mains we had steak that was a little bit grisly in parts but overall was good.
Excellent service. Quality food done to a high standard
Great food friendly staff and good fast service.
Had the curry, it was gorgeous. My friend had the fish and chips and said it was lovely. Cocktails are fab. Staff were friendly and helpful
Great food and service. Lovely atmosphere aswell and the desserts were divine.
Loved my Sunday roast, it was great to be handed my dinner and it was scrumptious.
We really had a lovely meal here. The ambiance was good, and we enjoyed our night. Would return again
Really good service and excellent food again . Always like going here
Superb as always.
Superb efficient staff and Manager
Absolutely lovely night, food was great. Nice Christmas atmosphere and Aava and team did a great job
Service was poor. Had to ask where our drinks were twice, and for our order to be taken. Not blaming the staff, they need to be managed better.
Super pub food in a nice atmosphere .
Absolutely amazing food and atmosphere, so many delicious options it was hard to choose just one! Everything was cooked to perfection. Will definitely be back!
Thank you so much for the kind review. Look forward to seeing you again.
The setting and especially the lighting at three o clock daytime was poor and resembled a night club. Brighter and not coloured lighting on tables where food is being served would be more beneficial so that customers can get a clear view of their food. No printed kids menu to view. The roast beef Sunday dinner was tasty with generous portions but the meat was dry. The kids burger was a slider, probably too small for bigger kids. No vegan dessert option available ,however the chef did put a fresh fruit salad together for my son. Staff were helpful and friendly Overall experience was average.
Live music was too loud but it was great otherwise
We apologise for this we have since looked at the volume issues and we have rectified them :)
The Thai curry was beautiful and the service from the front door to everyone we encountered was top notch will definitely be back and the guy playing music made it a lovely night for my wife's birthday so again thanks to everyone
We are so glad you had such a great night - can't wait to see you again!!
We got our food before our drinks. Had to ask for our drinks. Food was nice though. We were then charged for a drink we didn’t order or receive.
Waiting an hour on drinks, food arrived to the table before the drinks were ready. This is the 4th time this has happened us. Previous time they actually forgot our drinks order completely.
This was our second time at Lille’s and again we couldn’t have been happy with that food and service, the hot wings are just amazing and so were the onion rings. We will definitely be back . I think we found our new favourite place to eat.
Really good food, great value for money, service was really good too. Overall a great experience
Although pricey, great food and great ambience. Pity they don't serve lunch from Mondays to Friday. Only on weekends. Friendly observant staff checking regularly. Loveliest and warmest pub in Portlaoise by far.
Great cocktails. Great flavours in the bar food menu. Chefs have great attention to detail. Thank you !
Delicious food, great cocktails and place was hopping ! 🥰
Fab food in nice setting .
Probably needs a decor facelift
Food excellent loads of room service great lovely place to dine..
The best place to eat in Portlaoise by a country mile
I highly advise getting the Salmon Wellington
Melt in the mouth stuff
Plenty of choice in draught beers
Cheaply priced compared to other establishments in town
100% will be back again, and again
Well done to all staff involved
Once we were sat down we didn’t get our menus for quite a while, had to ask a member of staff to bring us one. The starter of Pork Tostadas was extremely sweet, a lot of things didn’t go with one another and the Dorito-like chip it was on tasted almost stale. The Tagliatelle main course was not really seasoned and quite watery.
