My wife and I traveled to Louisville, one of my favorite nearby cities, from Indianapolis to see a concert at Headliner's. We had a great time staying at 21c downtowm. We went to the Louisville Slugger museum and Commonwealth Motorcycles downtown, and our apetites were whet for some local, fresh cuisine. One of the Louisville free, street publications had a great review of Lilly's and their $12 James Beard Foundation burger. I've never been so unimpressed with the dining experience, honestly. With the exception of the Coke classic served from an 8oz bottle, Lilly's offered very little in terms of service or gastronomical aptitude. We ordered a goat cheese caprese salad to split. The goat cheese was much too cold to taste its creamy sensation, and the less than spoonful dollop was hardly enough to attempt to enjoy. The burger was one of the worst I've ever had. Asked to be prepared medium rare, and it came out closer to medium well. The meat tasted as if it had been rolled in a bowl of bread crumbs, awful. Our server, although nice, was overwhelmed. It took a long time to fetch such small items as knives and mayonaise. When we asked a fellow server to lend a hand, she treated us as if we were a rung lower in the animal kingdom. The host was one of the pompous types whose eyelids flutter when you ask the simplest of questions. For instance, Me: oh, I see there is a relationship between the owners and Julia Child. Pompous man dressed head to toe in black: yes, they are very close. Give me a break! Save your money and go to Baxter Station, which has wonderful food, great service, and any pretentiousness is quickly left to the haughty, europeanesque Lilly's.
I have to say this restaurant is not always as good as often. Today evening I invite some of my friends together with me to have a dinner there. The food is not fresh. The scallops have sands in it. The risotto is luke warm. The shrimp is salty. The seat is on the busy walkway.
What a pleasant dining experience!!! The staff is knowledgeable, helpful, and attentive. All ingredients are very fresh, each dish is carefully prepared and flavors blend perfectly. Sauces are and delicate and do not overpower the dish. Very adequate wine list and European style desserts. Care and attention is paid to every detail of the meal. Expensive? Yes, and worth every penny!
There is no better dining experience in Louisville. It's pricey, but worth it. Kathy Cary uses local, seasonal ingredients that take her dishes to the highest level of excellence. We have eaten at the best restaurants in Chicago, Las Vegas, etc. and Lilly's is as good as any of them.
Lilly's what can I say�
Fine dining with an outstanding menu of delights created of regional fresh ingredients. Wonderful atmosphere for an evening out with someone special.
Start off with a glass of Pappy Van Winkles Bourbon and let the good times roll.
