    Went to Ilili this weekend. AMAZING food. The fries are as good as they say and it was hard for me not to everything off the menu but the Mezza sampler plates are a great choice. Very shnazzy bar :)

    Try the Brussel Sprouts with fig puree, grapes, walnuts - Was not overhyped. Their "famous" Brussel sprouts deserve their fame

    Get the brussel spouts and lamb chops. No question. Excellent service. Ask to be in the upstairs dining room, its quieter.

    The appetizers are -heavy-, so share! Phoenician fries, hommus and mouhamara are A+

    Brussels sprouts were my fav dish. The lamb shoulder was good, but I'd opt for the duck shawarma instead (and I'm scared of duck).

    If you ever had raw kibbeh before and crave it as much as I do, this is the place. Come with an entourage if possible so you can try more of the appetizers. Stunning lebanese food.

    If you go during Restaurant Week, they give you two appetizers, an entree and a dessert for $35/din. It's...quite amazing and gives you an astounding variety of Lebanese food! Delish to boot :-D

    Octopus was tender & amazing. The brussel sprouts were crisp & decadent - definitely not your healthy version.

    Heard that the brussels sprout were the go-to, however they were a little too much for me. If you're looking for a light option those probably aren't the way to go.

    Meh. Hummus was blend and the baba over smoky and had too much lemon. The Brussels sprouts dish was good. Don't let them sit you upstairs it's depressing. Doesn't have a nice vibe like the main floor.
