I have been eating here since the early 2000's...I love the food, the staff is always friendly, funny & experienced. I love their menu & I am visiting in the Gibsonia area and will eat there this Thursday!!!
I feel robbed.
Saw this restaurant on the top 10 list so I just had to drive 45 minutes out to it. Especially since it was paired with eleven and other similar caliber restaurants.
What a joke. Cala Lily's you should be ashamed to rob people like that. 100 bucks for a table for two when what was served was well.... well below average.
The decor is what sets the mood... A run down cafe exterior... as you open up the door to a foyer with broken up wooden look alike vinyl tiles you encounter a hallway which seperates the dining room from the host table using some sort of wonderful table cloth or something? Then you walk to the table not knowing what to think with the dream, love, home and family signs straight from marshalls clearance section.
Food well.... Lets just say my wife and I saw a piece of mold on our bread. That just set the mood let me tell you. Then came cold poblano, dried up ravioli's and a steak that... well I'll hand it to them, was not the worst I've had.
Wine was room temperature and dull, atmosphere was dusty dated and used, and dessert was funny. They brought it out on a wonderful display. Just a hint cala lily... your desserts are nothing impressive to look at. Try to describe a delicious something instead of showing a beat up ole slice of pie. You might then be able to rob someone for more than the c note I paid.
Sorry about the frustration, I just feel a little bit taken. Thats it for now. I'm going to go boil myself in water now to clean off the dirtyness I feel after having left there. Thanks for wasting an hour and 45 minutes out of life. (yeah, it took that long).
AMAZING MEAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. We went to the Cala Lilly Cafe over the weekend and it was AMAZING! You'd never know it from the outside, but the service, staff and food was spectacular! We had drinks at the bar--a cala Lilly flirtini for me (great!)...Sat down to dinner, shared the stuffed portabella mushroom with crab (SO GREAT!). Then, I had a delicious salad. My husband ordered the pepper pork chop w/ stuffed banana peppers and I had the pistachio crusted tilapia. We also had a bottle of their red. zinfandel...NO COMPLAINTS! You must go there!!
