    The food is always good, but they were out of many menu items today so that was disappointing. The service we received was great! They were more than accommodating with my daughter's birthday cake as well.

    Cafe Lily is a go-to restaurant for me. I took two friends last night, to thank them for some much needed help they had provided to me. Each of us greatly enjoyed our meal, and the environment is such that you can converse without shouting. I give it my top rating.

    Probably about the most tender lamb I have had. The appetizer plate had a good sampling, though was a bit small for four, o.k. for two. Temperature was just a bit cool.

    Cute restaurant and nice Sunday brunch menu. The lamb and eggs were tasty but not satisfying. The tables are much too close together - very crowded and noisy. Based on the reviews I expected more from the food and ambience.

    The Chef’s specials, arancini, Trout amandine and Berkshire pork, were delicious! Service was excellent, as usual! The Manager and one of the co-owners were constantly (in a good way) checking on guests. It was busy, but we didn’t wait long for our meals. Cafe Lily is wonderful!

    We had Brielle as our server and she was absolutely amazing. I ordered the half portion of scallops and risotto and my only wish was that there was just one more scallop on the plate, but it was still extremely delicious. My friends ordered the seafood pasta dish and the goat cheese ravioli, respectively, and both raved about how good their dishes were. We then split the tiramisu, which was a smart move as it was a HUGE portion. We also enjoyed some cocktails that were great as well!

    strange but true, a woman sat next to us having a conversation on her speaker phone, while her phone was on the table, throughout the entire meal. Her daughter was watching videos on her phone with the volume up loudly. It was distracting and visibly irritating to other diners nearby, yet no one from the staff asked her turn her volume down or please use headphones. Never seen that behavior before, but would think that the staff would address in order to allow others to enjoy their meals. Great place and very enjoyable. Would recommend addressing such issues with a simple sign/policy and enforcing for the enjoyment of other diners.

    I have always loved everything about Cafe Lily. It has been my “go to” restaurant for special occasions for many years. Best the excellent food; it is a charming restaurant. Unlike so many others f the newer restaurants that have an industrial ambience, Cafe Lily is a lovely place to relax and visit with your table companions. We had a delightful waiter, but he had to cover so many tables that his service to us was slow, but that was not his fault! I recommend Cafe Lily to anyone who has never experienced it.

    One of my favorite places to eat in Decatur for a nice dinner. It is easy to have a good conversation and the food is always well-prepared. Good wine list and cocktail choices. One of our party was a vegetarian and she was very pleased with the variety of choices and she really liked her meal.

    Cafe Lily was a PHENOMENAL NYE dinner. The cocktails were perfection - highly recommend the no vacancy and they can swap vodka for gin if you are not a gin drinker. The a la creme mussels were delicious and positively decadent when you dip the bread in the creme sauce. We got the salmon and the short rib special. The salmon was so fresh and perfectly cooked. The short rib was the star though. The flavors were deep, rich, so umami, and I *did* cry a little. It exceeded our expectations!!! Of course, espresso martinis for after dinner - delicious and strong. We got tiramisu to take home and it was also *beyond*. The staff was so wonderful and the co-owners, Katie & Sowmya gave us all the recommendations, were warm and personable, and the entire evening felt so elevated. Highly recommend for a stunning meal!

    Our experience at Cafe Lily was horrid! When we walked in the door about 2:25, we were told the restaurant would close at 2:30 and the kitchen would close at 2:35. We had 5 minutes to put in our order! Or, as management said, "You are welcome to leave and eat somewhere else"! This was our Christmas Time with our friends. You don't just "jump up" & find another nice restaurant that will take your business without a reservation. So sorry Cafe Lily has been sold! Afraid it will no longer be a Decatur landmark for great food & service!

    Though the server gave us time to look over the menu; he was clearly annoyed, but most likely not as annoyed as I was when saw how tiny the Cardamon Old Fashion pour was- it made the orange used for the orange peel seem to be cantaloupe size. And that was the theme for our entree's as well- the $31 signature dish - chargrilled Spanish- spiced lamb tenderloin was sub-par with no seasoning except for the last minute salsa verde drizzled on top. The white sweet potatoes were under-cooked and tough. The Charbroiled Faroe Islands Salmon steak was however very well cooked (Chef's medium recommendation - both soft on the inside and flaky on the outside) and flavorful. The restaurant was pretty dead for a Sunday dinner and 99% of the guests were over the age of 65! You would imagine that this would create such a wonderful quiet atmosphere, but don't be mistaken- the loud scratchy voice of the manager is clearly heard screaming for HANDS from her servers who clearly didn't push themselves because a veteran server could run that small dining room by themselves. My suggestion to management is make personal touch points at tables to check on them and create better experiences and for the servers to build relationships and connect with their tables as opposed to answering questions about the menu with two word responses and then just checking if we're ready to order. I don't recall being asked if it was our first time or learning anything about the restaurant- this was an opportunity lost and cannot be won back.
