My wife and I had some spare time before a show. Looking for something local and different. We found Lili's and it is. Nice night so we sat out on the sidewalk. Not too noisy. Service was still good and had a wonderful meal.

This restaurant is now one of my favorites because of the tasty food. It was so good. We had four in our party and each one of us ordered something different. We were all beyond thrilled. I had the bacon wrapped stuffed pork chop and brussel sprouts. We also had the warmed donuts with ice cream for dessert. I will... More

Came here for something different and we were not disappointed. I had the chicken and etouffee and my wife had the elk sausage. The flavors were there and the portions were good sized, enough to take home. The restaurant staff was extremely friendly and attentive. I will definitely be back to try some more of this great food

While taking some out of town friends on a tour of Ft Worth, we chose Lili's as our dinner destination and was not disappointed. We did not have reservations and while the place was booked up, space was made at the end of the bar for our dining by the manager. Thus began a wonderful dining experience. The bar staff... More

Lili's Bistro on Magnolia has to be one of the best kept secrets in Fort Worth. When I worked in downtown Fort Worth in the 80's and 90's I would have treasured a restaurant as Lili's. On a recent business trip, two colleagues and I choose to enjoy dinner there. What a treat it was! The service was great and... More

First time having the Elk Sausage. We just love that there is always something new to try on the dinner menu. Of course, we finished with Lili's amazing donuts for dessert.

Lili's is a Fort Worth gem, truly one of the best restaurants in the city. This intimate little bistro is located on Magnolia in the Near South Side, an area which feels a bit like Brooklyn with its locally owned eateries, shops and bars. The menu is interesting and unique and everything is outstanding. Don't pass up the donuts for... More

This is a great restaurant for a couple. My wife and I visited on a recent trip to Fort Worth after not being able to get an early reservation at another restaurant, and I am so glad that we switched to Lili's! Both of our meals were excellent, my wife had the red fish and I had the seafood trio.... More

Unpretentious Global Cuisine Fast paced lunch featuring an array of salads, grilled sandwiches, almost famous burgers and several grilled specialties to chose from. The pace slows a bit at dinner and the environment elevates focusing on our wine bar, separate dinner menu, nightly specials and live music every evening...And don't forget to order Lili's house made Doughnuts and Coffee!
