Richard Brauchler6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good experienceWe go to Lulu's often and always enjoy it. Good food, service and vaue.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch!We celebrated my sister's birthday over brunch. Beautiful restaurant, great selections and ample portions. Really a good deal.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!!Took a group of 16 for a celebration dinner. The food was excellent and we had a wonderful time. The manager was great! Highly recommend!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was great! The Sand DabsIt was great! The Sand Dabs were delicious. I had them last year, so I wanted them again. As a matter of fact, we turned down an invitation to go with friends to another restaurant that evening, as having already made reseravtions at Lulu, I was looking forward to the Sand Dabs, which did not disappoint me. The dessert of flowerless chocolate cake was delicious also.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be back.This was our first visit to Lulu's. I now understand why it always looks so crowded. However the interior is quite large and inviting. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience and will return.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMet all ExpectationsI always recommend Lulu's when out of town guests visit. Our 70th birthday boy was VERY impressed with the service and food quality on the 3 course menu. A great place for groups of any size.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDinerAlways good food. Wine is a little pricey for a happy hour.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat new find in the heart of townWhat a great new find this was right in the heart of town! We had 3 different dishes off the 3-course meal menu and we all really enjoyed our meals. This was a great value that we were not disappointed with. The filet mignon was perfectly cooked and how the waiter described the doneness was exactly what we got. The servers were very attentive, but not too much so and the manager made rounds to check on everyone. We had a reservation and were seated right away despite the fact that several people were waiting on tables. The atmosphere is very hip and the people watching outside is great too. We will definitely be going back the next time we're in town.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMImportant to have reservationsImportant to have reservations if you want to get right in. Very popular the evening we went. We were seated at a very nice table overlooking the main floor. Definitely a place to go in Palm Springs5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMHoliday Weekend FavoriteWe were meeting good friends in the Palm Springs area for an evening of dinner and walking around. Our waiter was a wonderful guide through the cocktail and dinner menus. The wine selection was a perfect paring with our whitefish and scallops entree's. Had enticing dessert selection but our guys had a sweet spot for Ben & Jerry's ice cream. Next time! Overall it was wonderful service, good food and energetic holiday ambience.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was just okay. EverythingFood was just okay. Everything else was cool. Chill night out with some friends...5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Palm Springs Al Fresco diningLuLu never dissapoints.
Their $19.00 / 4 course offering for dinner is a bargain compared to other local eateries.
Great outdoor dining right on Palm Canyon5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service!I've been to Lulu's several times having discovered it last summer and I make sure to have dinner here on my Palm Springs visits. This restaurant is always busy so reservations are the way to go. The food is outstanding and the servers ensure that you are well taken care of. This is a sign of excellent management and staff who want to ensure that you have a great expereince so you'll return. I highly recommend checking it out if you haven't already!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timers in Palm SpringsMy wife and I were on a weekend getaway and this was our first time to PS. Our hotel clerk recommended Lulu's and so we made open table reservations ASAP (it was a Friday night). We decided to sit at the bar to take advantage of the happy hour menu because it was not available in their normal dining sections. We opted to order light items and so we ordered the lettuce wraps, lightly fried oysters and the chinese chicken salad. All the items were tasty and I would not hesitate to reorder them on a second visit. My mojito was also very tasty and fresh. The second cocktail, keylime martini, was okay. They used Smirnoff because it was flavored, but I was not a fan. Overall, this place was very classy, clean, and delivered great food.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality, choice and buzzThe room is big, interesting, lively and well designed so it has a good range of seating options. The menu has a lot of choice but what we ate suggests they still achieve high quality. Waiters were attentive and food prompt. All for a fair price.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLulu's was greatReally enjoyed our meals at Lulu's. We all had the Prixe dinner which had a really nice selection. The food was very good and the service was fantastic. Loved the ambience and they even have a great outdoor patio area, however we ate inside as it was so warm out.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic service ambience and foodI requested a booth when booking the reservation. We three were shown to our booth immediately. It overlooked the main dining area, a wonderfully open swirl of pastel colors, full of light & buzzing with excitement. The wide open space has dramatic staircases open to reveal the levels above, suitable for private parties. The service we received was excellent from beginning to end. There were many couples, some with children & many groups of people, half of whom were gay adding to the atmosphere. Recommend ice cold vichysoise, ahi tuna appetizer, angus burger, lightly fried zucchini strips. Brunch is a steal at $19.99 for 3 courses with lots of variety. Defintely recommend for couples, groups, brunch, lunch and dinner. We'll be back!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat value, good selection,Great value, good selection, good food and good service. Will continue to take family and friends to Lulu's for lunch and diner to enjoy and feel a part of the in town Palm Springs vibe.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHustles and BustlesIf a large and high energy place is your thing LuLu is a great place. I would have preferred a bit less noise, as it was very difficult to have any sort of conversation at our table, and a bit more attention from the wait staff, who was nice but the table was lacking a place setting and service a bit slow.... but the food was very good and the decor lovely. I will return, but perhaps during the week when a bit less crowded. For the price, well worth it.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMostly good, some not interestingWe find their appetizers more to our liking than their entrees. This time we each ordered three entrees, with the gazpacho being excellent, though a bit bland, the ahi tower tasty and pretty, the lettuce wrap a do-it-yourself project that didn't have much flavor. The flourless chocolate cake is almost too rich and quite delicious. No matter what the hour, this place is jammed, and reservations are always helpful.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location, great foodThe reservation worked perfectly. We had a table outside during the village fest and it was extremly busy. The food was great. Unfortunately, the salad which we ordered as as starter came after the entree.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA very nice addition to downtownAs usual, food was very nice and well presented, and the service was attentive and friendly.
I prefer to sit outside because I find it a bit noisy inside. If you want to have a conversation, that is what I recommend5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat choice great food and funBrought my 86 Y O mom, and we had a great meal, with incredible service. She loved it, we loved it. Can't say enough good about this place.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect vacation dateI was in Palm Springs for vacation and wanted a dinner out of the hotel. Most places in Palm Springs seem kind of old and have weird decor, but Lulu was airy, modern, and polished. The prix fix dinner (3 courses for $19.99) was SUCH a steal. The menu was really expansive with lots of gluten free and vegetarian options. I had the lobster ravioli in the prix fixe and couldn't believe I paid so little. Great food, great environment, and great service from the wait staff. The host/hostess that night seemed snobby and like they were annoyed I was there, but I live in San Francisco so that is kind of the norm, haha. I wanted to come back but we left the next day. My fav place in PS!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you very much aswe thought the food was very good and very generous and nicely priced. You remembered Evelyn's 89th Birthday with a fabulous
piece of chocolate cake and candle, thank you. Great mixed crowd, decor and good menu. Service lovely, really attractive men (much better than L.A.)
only 1 sour note, tvs with large screen had very violent martial art kick in the face show on, not great for dining and relaxing, very wierd. Made my daughter very uncomfortable who is 41.
Check the tv shows,not a rough crowd sitting there on Mother's Day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLuLu-liscious!This is a great restaurant! Not only for great decor and fun atmosphere but the food was really good! Our waiter was great and we enjoyed the relaxing feel of the patio! We will be back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Da y......early dinner.We enjoyed the restaurant......especially our table for 5 .........our ADULT children and Adult GRAND children

Service was well-timed and friendly, The French scramble was amazing and the Bloody Mary was refreshing.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day DiningMy sister and I were visiting in PS and a friend of mine had recommended that we try Lulu's. I totally respect my friend's recommendations and I was not disappointed. The service was excellent, food presentation very appealing and most important of all, the food was excellent. We were pleased to find out that we had a wonderful Mother's Day Menu to choose from which had ample choices and very reasonable prices. Will return next time I'm in PS and will definitely recommend Lulu's to my friends. Visitor from WA state5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day topped other visits!I have frequented LULU's before and it is always a pleasant fun experience.
Mother's Day was superb. I made reservations and I was so pleased that there was no complications with our reservation, that it was honored correctly. That was huge. We were on time. I knew that our table might be desired as we asked for outside. All went well.
We have taken my 4 and a half granddaughter there before. She behaved, the place is kid friendly without losing its adult ambiance. Can't be more pleased.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNothing specialThe food at Lulu is good, but it is nothing special. We have eaten there twice.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant with a goodGreat restaurant with a good following. Great menu with lots of selections. This is a busy place so reservations are recommended. Appropriately priced for what you get. We will definitely be returning.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThursday evenings at Lulu'sWe arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately on the patio where we requested a table when making our reservation. Our orders were taken promptly and service was attentative. All four of us ordered off of the PrisxFixe menu and we weren't dissapointed! Our wait staff was friendly and accomodating throughout the meal. This wasn't our first dine at this restaurant, and will not be our last, as the atmosphere coupled with the reasonable prices, good service and food makes this one a big winner for us!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphereGreat Hot Spot and views!
Food selection is good and pork chops are excellent...5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food great times!!Went here for lunch and dinner n was blown away the food is great the service was exceptional new fav place5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLulu Revitalizes a LocationPrior to Lulu coming to this corner, it hade been a series of unsuccessful restaurants/clubs. All that has changed. It is always busy, but is large so mostly wait times are minimal. My only criticism is that there is too much salt in the food, or at least there was in the dishes my husband and I ate.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLulu's was crowded, but itLulu's was crowded, but it didn't seem to bother the service or the kitchen. The delicious food came out hot; all the servers presented with a smile. This is a gem in the heart of downtown Palm Springs.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner for Two!The atmosphere is fantastic. So is the location. Service is perhaps too quick. We just finished starters when one waiter removed the empties another standing next to him downed the main course. Otherwise the service was excellent.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVery lively & cool atmosphereVery lively & cool atmosphere with good food & great people watching! You felt like you were in a trendy Miami or NY restaurant. It was the perfect choice for our large party of 10 girls.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've eaten here several times.We've eaten here several times.

Good for any type of customer!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantIt was our first time to the Palm Springs Desert Springs area. A friend of ours recommend the restaurant to us.

John and Lucy Chalmers4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA relaxing brunchMet my friend here to celebrate her birthday. Was very pleased that my Open Table request for a patio table was accommodated, as it was a rather last minute reservation. Lulu's offers a variety of choices on their brunch menu and my friend and I each ordered something different and shared a fruit bowl and crepe! Yummy.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
