This place is pricey, but good for anniversary dinners, company Christmas parties, better than average occasions, and it is always packed here . Valet parking reservations are definitely needed here, mostly good service , steaks seafood .

We go to Lellis place when I am in Detroit in special occasions. All food we have tasted was one of the best - start with a steak. They know exactly how how to do it. Combine with a recommened wine - the evening is yours. The interior is made with dark wood and warm colors feels very comfortable. The... More

It would be hard to be disappointed in Lelli's. The food was good, service was awesome and dinner was served at a leisurely pace. Perfect for a relaxing evening. Great place or a celebration or special occasion. Not an every weekend restaurant though because it is pricey. Lelli's is a well-established name in the area and it's worth trying!

I am a foodie and love to eat... So.. What does Medium+ mean to a steak restaurant when you order a 8oz fillet..... Not Rare... Tonight I had dinner at Lelli's for the first time. My Medium+ steak came out rare. When I sent it back they put it under the salamander and out came a medium rare piece of... More

We had a 8:45 reservation on New Year's even and arrived at 8:40 to find out the lobby was packed and they were completely backed up. They hadn't seat their 8:00 reservations and were running over an hour behind. We scrambled to find availability at another restaurant, paid the valet (it's not complimentary), and had to drive 20 away from... More

Lelli's is an excellent Italian restaurant that specializes in steaks. They have a several course meal option that is absolutely outstanding. Courses include fresh baked bread, antipasto, salad, minestrone soup (best I have ever had), spaghetti, the main entry, and desert. Their steak rivals any other restaurant's at a very reasonable price compared to other fine restaurants (i.e. Ruth's Chris,... More

The service was great and the food was fabulous. Sea bass was cooked to perfection. Filet melts in your mouth. Do the 6 course dinner. It is worth it. Nice atmosphere for business or a special night out.

The food was phenomenal and the atmosphere is great, however it is a bit pricy. The service was great though so overall a great dining experience.
