- Alfresco Dining
An outstanding establishment in the Auckland circle, although still young, Lilian is known far and wide as one of the city’s most admired restaurants. Offering a cosy escape from the otherwise chaotic Grey Lynn neighbours, Lilian is an osteria & wine bar dedicated to serving you unpretentious and casual, but extremely well-done food in a romantic atmosphere. The menu is the perfect length, offering a genre of dish to suit any kind of diner, with fresh seasonal ingredients at the forefront of it all. Whether you’re heading along for a wine and tapas in the summer breeze or looking to create a 5-course meal, Lilian can cater to your every need in the most elegant ways possible.
Our server was amazing, food was delicious and well suited for sharing with a large group. The deserts and pizza were standouts
Amazing food, best burrata I’ve ever had
food was outstanding, the pizzas were some of the best we have come across in Auckland! Funnily enough one of the most simple dishes of heirloom tomatoes were the crowd favorite! service was good but could have been a bit more welcoming and attentive- but we do understand you are a busy place.
Another incredible family celebration held at Lilian, service and taste sensation! 🙏
Delicious meal and great service!
Delicious food, loved that you had Seedlip. Fantastic service.,. Loved our waitress.
Love Lilian, the food is always perfect, the staff are so great too! Also best burrata in town!
Loved it, everything was delicious & great service. 100% will be back
A celebration of fine food, the drinks were excellent and the service and atmosphere great. It was a shame that the bartender let the initial arrival down when we arrived for our 5pm booking 5 minutes early, instead of a welcoming smile were told we had to wait outside for 5 mins on no uncertain terms. Not my idea of welcoming hospitality and it took us a bit to get over the cool welcome, nonetheless we absolutely loved it.
Had an epic night of delicious food and drink with good friends. Thanks team
Came here with a group of 11 and had an amazing time outside in the sun, such yummy food!

Wonderful dinning experience! Thank you for the great food and charming service, will certainly be returning with our friends
Thanks for a lovely evening, delicious food and great service xx
Always amazing food.
I just wanted to thank the staff for being so attentive and kind. We had two kids with our group both of which are outgoing and really energetic and adventurous. The staff were patient and kind and welcoming to the kids as they ran around the restaurant and drew pictures for the girls waiting tables. It was lovely to see them so entertained and was just so touching to see the staff go above and beyond and move around them on the floor with ease (even when they were running and crawling around my goodness). We tried to tell the kids many times to sit down for the meal but I’ll be honest I’m sure they were much more interested in making new friends and exploring the area. The food was beyond fantastic, that goes without saying but the experience was made better by your team. Ngā mihi nui.
Amazing experience! Food was incredible and we have the most amazing server at our table! Such a friendly girl who was really helpful when it came to the menu choices! Cant wait to come back!
An all round wonderful meal! Delicious! Thank you to your great team for looking after us so well.
Blew my socks off as per usual- love you guys!
Always amazing food! The only bad thing is having 1hr 40 for our group dinner :-) Fantastic service and will definitely go back again!
A really lovely experience. Tentative, kind service and the food was just pure, simple & delicious. It was nice to be able to book in advance due to level two - which took away any anxiety or delays for us on the night. Thanks!
Wish reservation slots were a bit longer
Thank you!! Amazing experience.
