Lilly's on Abbott Kinney (Venice): romantic patio?

Liquid Sky Jun 27, 2007 10:24 AM

Hi All,

I am looking for French food without breaking the bank.

And in a nice outdoor setting.

Would Lilly's in Venice fit the bill?

    i had my bridal shower there and it was a lovely covered patio surrounded by a nursery so you get flowers all around you. that was a lunch though, not sure how it is for dinner.

      I think Lily's would work. Another option that would fit the bill is Chez Mimi.

        Lilly's is a nice place. Food is good too although I am not sure if you'[d call it French. It's more like your typical upscale CA nouvelle cuisine.
        Chez Mimis is more classic "French". Lillys is better though.
