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.

    Nestled in the heart of the city, Lulubar is a hidden gem that promises a culinary journey like no other. From the moment you step inside, the warm and inviting ambience sets the stage for an unforgettable dining experience. The interior exudes a cozy charm, with dimmed lights casting a soft glow across the stylish decor. The combination of rustic wooden accents and contemporary design elements creates an atmosphere that strikes the perfect balance between modernity and comfort. The restaurant's layout offers an intimate setting, making it an ideal spot for a romantic evening or a gathering of close friends. Now, let's talk about the star of the show – the food. The menu boasts an array of enticing options, but the BBQ Duck Wraps truly stole the spotlight. These delectable bites were a fusion of flavors, showcasing a delightful Vietnamese flare. The tender duck, perfectly seasoned and grilled to perfection, was wrapped in thin, delicate rice paper. The accompanying dipping sauce added an extra layer of complexity, blending sweet and savory notes in harmony. Each bite was a symphony of textures and tastes, with the crisp freshness of the vegetables complementing the rich and succulent duck. The dish was a perfect representation of the chef's skill in combining diverse ingredients to create a harmonious and memorable dining experience. The service at Lulubar was impeccable, with attentive and knowledgeable staff members adding to the overall positive experience. From recommendations on wine pairings to ensuring our water glasses were never empty, the staff demonstrated a genuine commitment to customer satisfaction. Whether you're a food enthusiast or someone simply looking for a cozy spot to enjoy a delicious meal, Lulubar is a must-visit. The marriage of good taste, inviting ambience, and a touch of Vietnamese flair make this establishment a standout in the culinary landscape. Be sure to indulge in the BBQ Duck Wraps

    I made reservations a month ahead and was seated in the patio area with strong heaters overhead, not the ambiance I booked, the heat was blowing too strong and quite frankly disappointing overall for a special occasion. Please let people know if you are wearing them in the patio on a special night like Valentine’s Day.

    Lulu bar is always fantastic and I have had the same server three times now. He is great and remembered me, which I appreciate because there is a lot of traffic coming in and out of Lulu Bar. All of the staff are very knowledgeable about the menu and ingredients. I have nothing but amazing things to say

    Great place to try and expand your taste buds. I highly recommend getting several smaller dishes for diversity or getting one big dish to satisfy your appetite. Servers are very attentive and considering the quality of the food, pretty affordable as well!

    The food and drinks were absolutely outstanding! Only negatives were that the servers seemed very eager for us to eat quickly and get out. They began bringing food super quickly (even before our drinks) and did not pace the dishes at all. They brought out all the dishes immediately and at the same time except for one which was delayed 30-45 minutes later than the others. The food portions are also very small for the price. Other than that and the strange pace the food was amazing, service was good, and ambience was really nice!

    LuLu never disappoints. We have been many times and it's always great. I am a celiac and there are so many GF options on the menu. The majority of the menu is GF and all of the staff are knowledgeable about food allergies and restrictions and able to suggest modifications where necessary.

    Lulu bar was one of the best meals in recent memory. Visited in a group of four and shared all food items which were incredible: pork belly, curry linguine, duck, squid, chicken sate, loco moco, and finished it off with the baked hula for dessert. WOW! The service was also very, very good, it seems like everyone loved their jobs and wanted to make it a great experience for patrons. Oh and I can’t forget the drinks! The coconut cooler was delicious!

    The first time I went there, I didn’t have a good service experience. Our table discussed it after especially after our server basically threw our cheque in the middle, just seeing it flutter at the corner of my eye. Literally our whole table were servers from out of town not and it was not a friendly vibe. The food was fantastic so I brought my other friend from out of town there yesterday. Phenomenal food and service, best recommendations ever. Enjoyed 4 yummy dishes. So I am writing this because our server really made the night lovely and I wish I can remember her name. Shoutout to the lovely blonde server in the upstairs section on Friday evening on January 26th.

    I got their coconut curry linguine, and I was appalled with how limey it is. The ingredients did not say they had lime on it. It has Gremalota, which I’m assuming would have a lemon zest but not overly powering lime flavours. However lamb and cod was good overall a good experience.

    Great food, great service. Really tight spaces but the servers keep up well. Order your drinks ahead of time as the bar gets really busy. Because everything is so tight the table next to us was extremely loud which definitely interrupted our dinner, but overall great spot to eat and neat cocktails.

    The food was outstanding! We ordered 7 plates to share between 5 of us. Our waitress was fantastic and made great recommendations according to our likes and needs. We chose this restaurant because two of us are celiac and they accommodate celiac extremely well! 90% of their menu is gluten-free or can be made gluten-free.

    Compared to every other visit, the food was sub-par at best. The popcorn was changed, which was disappointing as it taste terrible and was sent back. The pork belly which is usually delicious, was extremely tough and flavorless. The mains were the only redeeming part, and they too were only ok. I wont be back for a while, hopefully some changes are made by then.
