Washington DC’s Top Family-Owned Italian Restaurant 


LiLLiES Restaurant & Bar opened in 2011 after our daughter coerced us into leasing the space — and it was the best decision we have ever made. We selected this space because Woodley Park is home. We have lived in Woodley Park for the last 17 of nearly 40 years we have called D.C. home and we take great pride in our community roots and commitment. 


LiLLiES is a family-owned and operated restaurant that welcomes and treats our customers like family. We are a local neighborhood restaurant and are committed to capturing the feel of Woodley Park inside our doors. LiLLiES is centrally located, steps away from the Woodley Park Zoo, nestled perfectly in our maroon canvas awning, that marks the location of our intimate restaurant & bar. We pride ourselves in using only Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. vendors for our food, beverage, and other restaurant needs. LiLLiES creates beautiful international-modern cuisine, made from scratch with fresh ingredients, to give everyone a taste of what they crave. 


When you walk through our doors, our goal is to make you feel at home. LiLLiES welcomes you for weekend brunch, mid-day lunch, or even stop in after work for dinner and a drink. LiLLiES has a spacious patio that is perfect for soaking up the sun —inside, our cozy couches, bar seating, and romantic candlelit tables bring about the perfect setting for cozy conversation and socializing with your neighbors. 


LiLLiES Restaurant & Bar welcomes you with open arms and open doors. We can’t wait for your experience with us, as it will be one to remember forever!
