Took out of town guests to Cafe Lily last night. Every one had a different entree and all were excellent. Service was very good nice atmosphere. Exceptional Zinfandel wine list otherwise wine list was adequate. All in all a very enjoyable meal.

Mediterranean food with good beer and wine choices. Plenty of meat and fish, but also vegetarian and vegan options on the menu, and more they're willing to do upon request. Atmosphere is nice enough for a big night out / special event dinner.

We have been dining at Café Lily for many years and it's consistently 5 out of 5 stars. From the level of service by the wait staff to the quality of the dishes, the experience never disappoints.

Fairly intimate but enough elbow room. Varied menu and range of prices. Business associate from out of town and most impressed.
