So torn-Lilette or Herbsaint?

I'm deciding my dinner tomorrow and I can't!! I've been to Herbsaint 3 or 4 times and LOVE it, but Lilette looks amazing... maybe Lilette followed by Herbsaint's banana brown-butter tart? HELP!!

  1. Lilette is fantastic. I've only been to Herbsaint for lunch, so I can't really comment on it, but I can say that Lilette's lunch blew Herbsaint out of the water.

    1. the food at Lilette is good, but I have been there twice and the service is terrible, totally ruined my experiance. Go to Herbsaint the food and the service is good, and you have to try the porkbelly and the chocolate malt creme brulee! AWESOME

      1. Well, you know Herbsaint will be good, because they're so consistent. Lilette might be better, but it might be worse also, and it's hard to know.

        If you haven't been to Lilette, I'd say give 'em a shot, but not if you're taking a date (or the boss) out.

          I Love Lilette, but it can get very noisy if you are trying to converse with more than one person.

        2. I love both, prefer Herbsaint, and think Lilette is worth a try since you've been to Herbsaint a bunch of times.

          1. Go to Lillete if you have never, you will no doubt enjoy it.
