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.

    Creative food, absolutely recommend the pork belly, although I wish it was slightly less fried. A bit too loud to carry conversation unless you're seated on the patio, but with the decor you'd want to sit inside.

    Had a very fun, casual vibe but with food that was beyond excellent. Each dish was really well done and the server/kitchen made sure the small plates came out in courses that complemented each other.

    Every dish we shared was delicious, and they have my favourite dessert in the whole city. All of the cocktails were great too! Love the outdoor seating, and inside is beautiful too. Great service and great food. Thanks.

    It's our first time in Lulu Bar and we are happy with the experience we got! The lobster dumplings and pork belly are a MUST TRY! Their cocktails were also quite strong and flavourful. The only thing we'd comment on is the temperature in their back "patio" area, it would have been nice to get more industrial fans to cool the place. Other than that, we'd give it a solid 8/10.

    Their food and drink were amazing. We had steamed lobster dumplings, pork belly, beef tongue skewers, fried chicken and coconut squid. I really loved the beef tongue. It was not the traditionally grilled beef tongue. The chicken was crispy and juicy. It came with rice but it was kind of cold unfortunately. The sauce for every dish was so good. They have unique cocktails that I loved very much. Definitely I will come back again.

    The food was great, small portions and a little pricey but definitely worth it. Great service and well decorated, however the lack of air conditioning and high amounts of flies inside weakened the experience.

    There’s a dish Halibut, the soup was very salty. The bread n green leaves soaked in the soup, too salty. Omg. Fish itself was fine. Other than that, awesome.

    LuLu never disappoints and it was amazing one more time. I am a Celiac and so appreciate how many GF options there are at LuLu. My in-laws were in from Florida and they were so impressed by the amazing food. Our waiter was Jayden. He’s just great. This is the second time he has been our server. Great guy!! One more amazing meals at LuLu.

    The drink selection was good (for both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages) and were served in fun glasses. The timing of the dishes coming out of the kitchen was perfect - we didn't feel rushed out of the restaurant but we also weren't left sitting hungry for too long. The food was very tasty and was perfect for sharing.

    The food was delicious, drinks were perfect and couldn’t fault the service, but, we were seated upstairs in the back nook which felt completely detached from the restaurant. Next time I book I will specifically ask to not sit in that area.

    Service was excellent. The lobster dumplings, coconut squid, and cauliflower were very good, but the pork belly was kind of tough. The place is pretty loud and there were a lot of flies inside that were distracting, but I would definitely go back to try other things on the menu.
