    The venue was good and the performance was outstanding. We had very good seating as we requested a close to stage table for two. Our son was playing that night and the reservation team made sure we received the perfect table. The dining cost was reasonable and the quality was good, not out of this world, but considering it is an entertainment venue, it was acceptable. It was a limited menu, from seeing the verity on their website on other dishes, it was a little disappointing. Over all, a great place to watch and listen to upcoming and established local musical talent.

    Ambience was amazing but not worth the price tag of $400 for a dinner of two people with mediocre food portions, as well the food was nothing to rave over and a few cocktails. I specified to the restaurant that it was my wife's birthday, which originally was not even recognized by our server until I pointed it out. Even though I said it on the reservation twice it wasn't noted down. The server corrected it by offering a free cocktail. Safe to say we will not be returning here for dinner as the value doesn't match the price tag. I guess the restaurant "feels" like they can gauge their customers for the experience...

    Drag show EXCELLENT. Service pretty good. The Music during the brunch before the show was so obscenely loud. I don’t mind loud music at all but our conversation with our friends consisted of “WHAT?!” for the duration of our meal. Sadly I wouldn’t go back for that reason alone. The drag show I would go back for in heartbeat, they put on a fantastic show! The DJ needs to chill out.

    My wife and I each had the sirloin steak - well charred and done perfectly (Med Rare is the only doneness available). I had the beef consomme to start - interestingly red in colour, with pulled beef and very different spicing, but delicious! We both had mojitos with fresh herbs - again very well done. Service was timely and attentive. The atmosphere background music and decor is all Latin/salsa - bright and lively. All in all, a great experience

    I wasn't sure what to expect and came hungry for pre-show dinner so was a little off by the "small" portion of the slow-roasted beef ribs. However, it was apparently misleading because it was not only delicious, but surprisingly filling. I had a coffee (small) which was OK and don't know if there was refills available - never got the chance to ask. It was a very busy and energetic venue, and loud but the decibels dropped considerably when the show started. And while I didn't see my waiter often, he did check up on me from time to time, which was nice. Friendly staff all around and vibrant decor.

    First time at this location and came to celebrate my birthday with a few friends. The staff were very welcoming, the ambiance transitioned us to a different place, felt like we were on vacation. The live band and music was excellent and very entertaining. Drinks cost about $20 so it adds up quickly if you’re spending the night here. For groups more than 6 there’s an 18% gratuity included after your total amount (which adds up quickly and doesn’t really make sense). The food was good but nothing exceptional. Steaks cold, salmon over cooked. The steaks cost and extra $25 to the set menu price. The dance floor was really packed with hardly any room to dance. Overall it was a good night but not worth the price.

    A great place to celebrate a birthday and have a fun, interactive night with friends. Edwardo our server was attentive and the whole venue had a great vibe. I was worried about the food after seeing some bad reviews but I thought the food was very good. It was an expensive night with all the drinks etc. but it was a special evening we will remember for a long time.

    Food was average. This place has a cool concept but it was really unprofessional to see the band trying to tune up while other music was playing. It sounded awful and I'd expect the band to be ready to go before people arrived. Then while the live performance was going on, the sound technician could have done a better job balancing the noises. Other wise, it's a pretty chill environment and they give you a free birthday drink which was nice.

    I love Lula Lounge. The service is excellent and welcoming. The food is delicious and fairly priced. There is an extensive drink menu. The intro dance lesson makes sure everyone feels includes. The bands and singers take me on vacation and the dance floor is full of people smiling and vibrant. The DJ music is great to keep you dancing between sets. It's a great initiation to the Latin vibe. 5 stars every time.

    Food was good but the portions were too small for the price. Short ribs were one small rib and not ribs. The Guacamole was a tiny cup with few pieces of nachos, sorry just came from the US and their ribs and nachos plate is enough for three people. The music was great but way too crowded to dance, the place was way over its capacity.

    We had dinner and stayed for the dancing. The food was excellent we had the shrimp, guacamole, salmon, cauliflower ( it was spicy but delicious) flan and Brownie. The drinks need some help, staff need to learn how to make a proper mojito. Otherwise the music was great, staff were very friendly and fun we had a blast. Great vibe all night! We would go back again for sure!!

    Great venue. Food pretty good, service friendly if not exactly efficient. Although I confirmed I was going, my name wasn't on list, it took a while to get drinks, server forgot to bring cutlery. But everyone was so nice and the food, again, was good, so I really didn't care. The sound was excellent, the vibe good. I had a good time. Please, more good jazz.

    Great space for an event like a book launch, which is what I attended. Only thing that seemed to throw people was the mandatory coach check and cash only at coat check. Given that the ticket process is electronic most people in the line couldn’t understand why the payment couldn’t also be electronic. Other than that it was a fantastic experience!

    The band was literally shouting , it was horrible, too loud and unprofessional singers. I love latino song but this band was aweful. Food also didn’t meet my expectations, with 70 bucks I could get very decent food anywhere else. The only positive thing was the salsa lesson and the environment, but I won’t go back there anyway.

    I had a very nice high table which was perfect as I like to get up and move to the music without impeding anyone's view. The Caribbean jazz was awesome. I found it pretty ludicrous that when ordering 2 drinks we had to pay $15.00 for a basket of taco chips and a tiny cup of guacamole. That should have just come gratis with the drinks when we requested taco chips. I ordered 'seared' salmon which is usually not a very THICK piece and I asked the waiter to make sure it was 'just seared'. He returned 10 minutes later to check that I wanted the salmon 'well done'. NO I reminded me, NOT well done, 'seared' only. The salmon arrived, a thick piece, AND IT WAS RAW. I did not send it back, I wrapped it and brought it home. We could not ever taste the tequila in the margaritas. That's too bad because they're about $20!! The bill was $185 which was considerably more than I had spent for us at Café Buloud at the 4 Seasons the night before. Let us remember all drinks and food at Lula are on top of the price of the tickets for entry and the show. I would think twice about ever eating there again. I used to come to Lula all the time 15 or 20 years ago and it was wild fun, funky, get down and amazing dancing. Now it's become very WHITE, (and I am white), and middlebrow, a bit uptight. I liked it before when it was more bohemian. That's just my opinion. Thank you.
