Pacific Rim
Lulu Bar is an escape from the ordinary. Its welcoming vibe is reminiscent of hidden gems from your last vacation, only better because it’s right here in your own backyard. With a healthy, Pacific-inspired menu, Lulu’s wood-fired food is light and fresh — but heavy on flavour.

Chef Joseph Sokoloff’s fare is a tribute to the Pacific Ocean and many of the regions that touch it, with influences from Asia to Hawaii, California to British Columbia. Lulu’s fun, light, and refreshing drink menu is equally well-travelled. Its sake, beer, and creative cocktail offerings will make you feel like you’re far from home — and we like that.

Celebration for my girlfriend buying a house. The menu has been pared down due to covid, but the food was great. The squid is unbelievable. And the cocktails were fantastic, especially the Coconut Cooler and the Bobcat, but very expensive.

The hostess was lovely and sat us at a table close to the patio as it was a nice warm evening. Our drinks were great, although at one point we waited quite some time for them to arrive at our table. We ordered the snap peas and szechuan noodle salad, both were delicious. Our server was less awkward and slightly which took away from the overall experience. It felt like she wanted to rush us so she could cash out.

WE had a great time. We let our server pick our meal and that was a great idea. She chose some things we probably wouldn't have.

Thanks

My go-to patio on 17th. The trick is to get there between lunch and dinner rush to score a street-facing patio table!

Server was great but not polished and almost came back too often - lots of interruptions and didn’t read the table. Food was hit and miss... delicious calamari, fishiest lobster. Great drinks and warm friendly environment

This is my second time here and I tried to like it because it's been highly rated. I gave it another shot, but I just can't. Perhaps it's because I went on the weekend this time where I wasn't able to take advantage of their M-F happy hour, but the drinks (cocktails) are expensive and the food was mediocre at best. The only thing I enjoyed was the baos. Service was good, but this would not be on my list of recommendations.

This was my first venture out after Covid. The food and cocktails were excellent. It was a little surreal with the wait staff wearing masks and eating off off paper plates and plastic cutlery. Menus via your phone only. They were doing a good job and keeping everyone safe with few touch points. A little loud to be able to hear wait staff behind masks. Overall great experience. Just expect things to be different for a while.

We came as a family with two adult children and had an enjoyable time. Food was interesting and tasty and pleasing to all. Service was excellent and servers seemed happy to be back working. Felt that everything was being done to align with public health measures regarding covid. Restaurant went above and beyond to make us feel safe.

It was my first experience out at a restaurant since the pandemic and visiting friends and I have to say Lulu bar killed it! They made ya feel so welcome and safe and made a huge effort above and beyond to explain all the new procedures. Food was incredible as always and we really soaked up the half price happy hour wine

Absolutely fabulous meal! Best we have eaten! Wonderful presentation.

However, your restaurant design, although trendy, has no sound absorption design, plus an open kitchen, so the atmosphere was very noisy which greatly detracted from our overall satisfaction.

I tried the YYC EXP menu last week and it was so delicious... I had to take my trainees for a bite. Probably my favourite restaurant in Calgary by all means.
