    Our service was by far the worst part if the experience. The unlimited vodka bar was always out of supplies and they were slow to replenish. Our waitress was very inattentive and seemed to be overloaded. Some of our dishes were good but mediocre at best. Some were not. Wouldn’t return.

    Food was ok, but service was very slow and not very personal. The place was also too cold and the staff did not respond to requests to relocate us or turn AC down- will not come again!

    Our food (grilled veggie salad and crawfish Mac Cheese was phenomenal. The drinks were refreshing and dessert to die for (lemon ice box pie & flourless chocolate cake). Matthew, our server was very helpful with top notch service. We even purchased 2 bottles of house crafted vodka.

    We've been to LuLu a few other times and enjoyed it. This time it was early after seeing Hamilton at the 2pm at the Saenger. I guess the other times we went it was later and we missed the Happy Hour specials that run until 7pm. I got the pork osso buco with was a huge bone with a lot of meat on it, I felt like I was caveman eating. The dish also included grits and brussels sprouts. I brought enough home to have a 2nd and possibly a 3rd meal.

    Found this restaurant on Open Table. Great drinks. Try the Frozen Drinks- they are amazing. We had a Bourbon and Ginger frozen drink. The food was amazing- great presentation and awesome flavor. Room was quite loud. Lots of hard surfaces- but overall everyone in our 5 person party loved the food!

    We had a great time & enjoyed the food, drinks & atmosphere. Even though the restaurant was busy with lots of large parties, we were treated like we were the only ones there. Didn’t have to wait too long for any course. Everything was timed perfectly! And a delicious bread pudding for birthday dessert. Excellent!!
