The atmosphere & servers were great, but our food took over an hour after we ordered. My burger came with tomatoes, which I specifically said I did not want, or fries were half way cooked, & my husband's steak was very fatty. We understand that it got busy & perhaps the kitchen got backed up, so we will be back to give it another shot, but there is big room for improvement in that area.

Everyone was super friendly and our waiter Austin was knowledgeable of the menu choices and super friendly and helpful. Just wish I hadn’t had to verify with Open Table that I wasn’t a no show as reported by the restaurant even though I told them I had a reservation when we came into the restaurant.

Wonderful brunch service with warm and friendly staff. Food was delicious and was a reasonable price. Add bonus of the "kids dog bone cups" made it a hit. Will be back for more...

Food was amazing! We went for Mother’s Day brunch and they gave each mom a red rose and a chocolate covered strawberry! It was those little details that just added to our experience

Service was painfully slow and the food, when we got it, was subpar. Considering how expensive the dinner was, everything should have been WAY better. I don’t mind paying for a great meal but this was far from a great meal. I would not eat here again and would not recommend it.

Lovely facility and busy. Helpful and friendly service. Drink menu is great and the West Virginia Mule is a tasty adaptation of the traditional mule! The food was not as good as the ambience and service. The salad with shrimp was generous in greens and stingy on shrimp and the gnocchi was uninteresting and felt like the sauce was from a can. The restaurant is lovely so I hope the chef can rise to the challenge!

I found Lilah to be average. My mojito didn't have much flavor, it definitely needed more lime/mint. I got the seafood duo and the scollops and lobster tail were great! However, the rice that came with it was oddly sweet and not very good. Maybe I was expecting the place to be a bit more fancy than it was. Nice community vibe overall.

Wewere there for Easter brunch and it was overall a disappointing experience, party of four, two adults and two tween children. We were seated next to the bar and in front of their service station, so close that the servers rubbed against the table when they went around us. There was a lot of commotion due to staff traffic —putting away dishes, getting dish rags, etc. The tables were so close together, you couldn’t pass between them and we couldn’t sit down or get up without disrupting the table next to us or run into servers who were moving in and out of the service station. We were so close to the table next to us that when the server was taking their order, her bottom was right next to my face abd touching our table. The quality of the food is pretty average, especially considering the price. The deviled eggs had been made in advance and had just come out of a fridge, which affected the taste and quality. The fries are hand cut but were soggy and partially undercooked. The grits (shrimp and grits plate) were undercooked and crunchy. The entire meal was bland. The chicken (chicken and waffles) was burnt and very dry. We couldn’t cut the chicken up and ended up trying to pull it apart with our fingers. A few bright spots: the burger is very good, flavorful and cooked well. The waffles were also very good, sweet, warm and plentiful. The Bloody Mary was also very good. I had visited once before and had drinks (blackberry mule and old fashioned) both very good but once again the food (charcuterie board) was lackluster and overpriced. It’s a good location, cute decor but we will not be returning.

The cocktails were well crafted and unique. Food was perfectly prepared. Our waitress was very attentive. We will definitely be back.

The only actual "negative" thing we perceived of Lilah's is it was extremely bright inside for an evening dinner, like full sunny day outside level lighting.

Lilah’s made me feel very comfortable in my dine-in experience during the pandemic. I was seated very far away from others and the waitress gave my table its own water glass for us to pour ourselves. Masks were worn by the employees the whole time and there were hand sanitizer bottles on every table. The vegan stuffed shells were beautifully presented and very tasty, so were the vegetable potstickers!

I thought the food was just ok. We had the Cauliflower app and the sauce was bland so I’d like to see them spice it up some. I had the 12 oz Rib-eye and added a 5oz lobster tail. The Rib-eye was about 1/2 inch thick and lacked flavor.

My daughter had the Vegan Shells and my wife had the Steak Frites with chimichurri sauce. Both said it was ok.
