    This is always an excellent experience for us… We are regular diners here anytime we are in town . It is a wonderful vibe, great service, delicious drinks, and excellent entrées and appetizers… Try the tuna-avocado tower, and the toasted ravioli. The cotton candy dessert is a must!

    Our visit to Palm Springs coincided with restaurant week, and we didn’t realize Lulu’s was a participant until our arrival for our reservation. Two of our party opted for the pre-fixe menu, while I ordered from the regular menu. The cocktails were excellent, and I wish I could describe the salads as the same. Unfortunately, the tomato caprese was bland and boring, with ‘pink’ tomato slices utterly lacking in flavor. The other two were bereft of adequate dressing, including the pre-fixe shrimp salad, supposedly served with a ‘signature house curry dressing.’ The entrees were unremarkable… but fine. Nothing was outstanding, but neither were there any complaints. The service was mostly excellent, although I waited for parmesan for my spaghetti bolognese until it was lukewarm. The ambience is spectacular, with a spacious and fun modern retro decor. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and I would definitely return.

    After maybe ten years of eating at Lulu on every trip to PS, this was our most disappointing meal. Subpar food (3 of 4 of us wouldn’t order same dish again) and really forgetful, aloof service. Had to ask for things twice several times. Waiter actually told us they were out of all of the good desserts on the restaurant week menu so we’d have to get the ice cream cookie. Not a great upsell…lol. Totally different than past experiences. Hopefully just an off night.

    Great meals, fun atmosphere, nice Restaurant Week lunch menu. The selection included a refreshing beverage that was tasty and got the meal started off right. The food was very well prepared, the server was pleasant and atmosphere upbeat. Very nice experience.
