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.

    The decor and food were good, but the seating, temperature and general amount of comfort left a lot to be desired. The seats were crowded, tables were small and we had to shout to be heard. It is more of a bar than a restaurant. I recommend the Duck, which was fabulous.

    The service and the meal were outstanding. We sat on the patio and veranda. The table and chair are not in good shape and I worried about sitting on them with my expensive blouse and pants.

    I really enjoy the Venus cocktail. I requested patio if available and we could not have been put any further from it. Most of the food especially the pork belly, but who sells a cocktail Weiner on Bao? Could have been so much better. Service was great even though the place was packed.

    What a fun experience at Lulu Bar. This is a must eat when in Calgary. The overall vibe of the restaurant is very fun, trendy, and full of tasty dishes. The best part is getting to try a few different small dishes and splitting them with your table. In addition, the drinks are AMAZING. We were so impressed with the drink menu and the creativity. The service was spectacular and our waiter had very good recommendations for us to enjoy. We highly recommend what we ate: the hotdog bao buns, salmon poke, lobster dumplings, spam skewers and the duck. The duck takes a bit longer to cook but it’s incredibly worth it.

    Delicious and fun/different cocktails to try. My picky husband didn't love the food but I did! Just be a bit adventurous. Amazing beet salad is a must try and love the combo of ordering skewers, salads, noodles to share to get more than one thing.

    Brunch is always good here. It's not the usual brunch fare (eggs, waffles etc). The menu is this eclectic mix of Asian fusion, pub grub and street food. I ordered the rice crunch salad. Defiantly recommend this! It's such a lovely spot to visit with friends and family.

    The food and experience were great! I just felt awkward at the table we were sitting at because there was a door right behind my chair and the door opened 3/4 of the way, which was propped open (behind the bar), the door did not open 180' therefore I felt people bumping, brushing up against my chair as they walked passed behind me to sit at their table. Otherwise, we will definitely return to Lulu for the great food and drinks!

    The food was good, but lacked a bit on the presentation. Cocktails saved the evening. The Bobkat was tasty and fun drink. Service was average given the large amount of staff on a Saturday night.

    Exceptional service! Very attentive, friendly and professional. Having sparkling water on the table is fantastic! The food was very good - the edamame beans, salt and pepper pork belly and hot dogs on bao buns were great. The popcorn was good but it was just the small bits, I only had 1 full piece of popcorn. The hot dogs didn't have the greens on them and the halibut cheeks in the halibut dish were very minimal. The dish was very good but I would expect a full serving of fish. The coconut cake didn't have a lot of flavour. We were outside and the heaters turned on and we got really warm, they turned them off when we asked. I would absolutely go back but try some different dishes. Thanks for a great night!!!

    Not worth the price or hype! Skewers have two tiny pieces of meat that were raw and cold. Ended up making everyone at table sick. Portions are very, very small. It’s so loud you are basically screaming at your guests.

    Very much enjoyed the food but the chairs are too low and hard. Also quite noisy but because we were on the patio.
