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.

Excellent meal and service. Menu a bit out there if you have eaters with a limited palate. Nice to have a quieter space upstairs

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.

Had the prix fixe menu for food and drink expo. Service was excellent. The octopus skewers were nice and balanced, not overdone. Unfortunately I found the main dish had overly rich and oily flavours. I had the arctic char and between the breading being but too spiced and the heavy rich red Thai curry sauce, it was hard to taste the fish. Nice flavours in and of themselves but overpowering and unbalanced. The eggplant batter was much too thick for the amount of eggplant inside. The fresh herbs garnishing the dish saved this main.
The mango posset was tasty but I found the bottom layer too sweet.
Overall a good experience but I'd opt for a different main if I could.

Ambiance was amazing, we got some great seats that overlooked the restaurant. Servers were friendly! Food was great, no problems at all. Would defiantly recommend if you’re looking for a night out, but do make a reservation as it can be very busy for dinner.

We tried the dine out Calgary menu and wewere very impressed! The mango dessert was fantastic! The staff were all very lovely and managed to accommodate our request for a non-alcoholic beverage to be brought in one of their cat mugs.

It was our Valentines Day dinner and we were very happy to have chosen this place. It was our first time but it won’t be our last. Thank you!

Two pals catching up. Menu just right though the size of the large plates meant that one with a veg side was enough. The fried chicken has a piquancy and crunch which I will travel back across the Atlantic to have again.

The food is always fantastic. Our server went above and beyond, he honestly set a new industry standard for me. I think his name was Daylyn. Drink menu is dangerous. I absolutely LOVE lulu.

Came here for a birthday dinner and couldn’t be happier. Super flavourful dishes, and the server made sure the timing between each dish coming to the table was perfect. Also love that they carry sours from Bellwoods Brewery because they’re my fav!

I didn't order the lunch specials that came with appetizers like the rest of the table did. But when everyone got their appetizers I also received my main at the same time. It took 25 minutes after their app plates were taken away for their main meals to come. The timing on everything was off and made the conversations awkward. I asked why the mains didn't come out all together and all I got in response was "Oh?"

The food was delicious and the service was very good despite our sever having a bit of a cold. She also gave us some great recommendations. The only complaint was the table next to us that consisted of three obnoxious boys that should’ve filled up at the A&W across the the street instead of filling up on beers and sharing food off one guys plate.

Food was absolutely fantastic, pan pacific fusion. Service was well done, not over the top. Loved the ambience and the environment, would've liked a little bit more lighting but it would make sense on a Sunday night.
