Lily's, Venice--Bad News

brwencino | Nov 10, 2002 01:47 PM

Wife and I and another couple went last night to Lily's on Abbott Kinney in Venice. We were there several months ago and it was quite good, but not this time. Problems: 1. Two ordered one chardoney and given another more expensive one. 2. One ordered duck and got halibut. 3. Halibut not fresh--whole table could smell fishy smell. 4. One ordered mussels (me) and at least 1/2 the shells were empty. 5. One ordered dessert (me) and waiter forgot to put order in. 6. All dishes were put down in front of wrong people (this always bugs me). 7. Service was slow. 8. Parking was $4 and by this time I was not feeling generous after the treatment in the restaurant, so I gave $5 and asked for $1 change--met with very rude response.
Lily's will have to do without us.
