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.

Such an amazing place. Service could have been a little better, sometimes we were looking for the waitress. Drinks initially took a little longer than I would have liked.

Runners were amazing, great explanation of the food and really good.

Food is outstanding. Squid is the best I have ever had and the baked hulu. You can't go wrong

Cocktails were amazing & so was the service. A bit on $$ side compared to other places which do the same thing / vibe but other than that it’s a decent place.

I've been to Lulu many times and the food and drinks always impress me. We especially enjoyed the sake menu on this visit. We were seated on the patio due to covid but we were nice and warm and enjoyed people-watching on 17ave!

The Hula Pie is a must-try!!!

Thanks for another great meal, Lulu Team

Our visit to Lulu last Friday dinner service was wonderful! They have extended the patio with heaters on the side of the building and has easy access to the washroom too.

Our server was also very attentive and friendly.

Always a favourite!

The food and drink at Lulu were fantastic. Unfortunately, there were food remnants in each crack in our table. You can tell the spaces between the wooden planks haven’t been clean, ever. This made for a less-than desirable dining experience.

There is a reason reso's aren't easy to come by. The food was incredible, with a unique blend of tastes and well presented. the cocktails should be an equal draw as they are also uniquely crafted. The service was a pleasant surprise as I tend to find that service in Calgary is often lacking. A great overall experience and would highly recommend.

Server was awesome! Was a little disappointed we didn’t get to sit near our friends as requested, weren’t even close to them when we could have been. Food was yummy! Halibut turned me off when he said they were cheeks so that should be on the menu. Unless I missed it... overall delicious and the service was great.

Our server was sassy and pushy. Felt rushed to order. The only saving grace was the man who helped her serve our food - he was well knowledge on all food and provided kind service.

Unfortunately will not be coming back.

Amazing food, excellent service as always .. but we found the place has turned into more of a crowd/bar/after work/party vibe so we experienced it as rushed, noisier, less “business casual” or formal than I recall from before covid so unfortunately it no longer feels like a special evening out.

Lulu is a go to spot for us. The food never disappoints! Almost the whole menu can be made gluten free without compromising on taste. The last few times we have had Elle as our server and she is exceptional. She is on top of things and recommends the best hidden gems on the menu. Great cocktails and the happy hour is awesome! Strong recommendations for Lulu!

Food was delicious as always, waitress was amazing . Always consistent when I go there , never a bad time. Cocktails were perfect as well. Seems expensive for the portions of food but once you finish you realize how filling it actually is.

Parking in the back was difficult with staff parking in no park zone. Mentioned it to the hostess and she said it would be addressed, when we left the 2 cars were still in the way.

Chairs weren't comfortable and the restaurant was noisy for our liking.

Food was above average and our server was fantastic.

It was great to finally come back to Lulu Bar. They planned out the setting areas to respect COVID regulations which is very much appreciated. Service was awesome (our server was Adam I believe) and the food, as always, was amazing.
