Diner Reviews
  • "We invited some friends from North Carolina and we collectively enjoyed the food and service provided."

  • "Had brunch at Lulu's 7/13/13. Made reservation online at Open Table - was very busy. Atmosphere simple: brick walls, open kitchen, wooden tables. It was comfortable but the noise level is high. The food was delicious (bit too salty though). We ordered French toast with creme anglaise, fresh strawberries, an omelette with crab, an omelette with tomato, onion, avacado and cheddar. All were delicious. The egg dishes came with a side of roasted potatoes/peppers/onions which were seasoned and cooked perfectly except a bit too much salt. We were disappointed they didn't offer espresso but the drip coffee was good. We would definitely return to Lulu's if we visit Richmond again. The place has a nice vibe and great food."

  • "Lulu's food is great. They have the best strawberry French toast I have ever had and their red velve waffle is to die for. My only teeny tiny complaint is that the music was a little too loud. But that may have been more noticeable because this time there weren't ago of patrons in there. Other than that I simply adore Lulu's."

  • "We went to Lulu's on Father's Day. We made reservations at 10:00, but showed up early and we were seated right away. The staff has a very friendly attitude. The service was quick and all explanations were given on any menu items, since it was our first time there. The food was great and we will definitely go back."

  • "We went to Lulu's for brunch on June 1 ... it was an outstanding choice ... everything on the menu looked great ... went with a special, Atlantic Omelette (featured lobster, crab and bacon) ... could not have been better ... accompanied by some "spicy" home fries (Old Bay). Look forward to going back next time we're in Richmond."

  • "Headed here for brunch last Sunday and had a pretty good time. Food was good, service was normal and pretty quick. Our table loved the red velvet waffles (obviously), and devoured biscuits and gravy, huevos rancheros and the chorizo frittata. For other diners, sit up in the front of the restaurant and not in the back. Restroom traffic was really heavy and it was a bit awkward trying to eat with people standing in line staring at you. If you can find a table up front, this place should not be missed! "

  • "That's really the only good thing I can say... the music was really great, food was not what we expected, drinks totally overpriced considering none of the bar money was going to pay the band..."

  • "Sunday brunch. With reservation were seated in rear with traffic for restrroms one table away and facing a brick wall. Menu while lively with entertaining descriptions was not excitingly broad. Noise level over the top with eclectic music selections. Tall ceilings did little to temper ear splitting energy not of relaxing mood. Young lady at next table obviously had headache from being overserved the previous night and was holding her ears against noise level. Return? Think not."

  • "Our favorite brunch place in Richmond, but it is always noisy. They need to turn the music down so people don't have to raise their voice to have a conversation."

  • "We were greeted pleasantly and seated graciously for our 6:30 reservation. However,we were thrown off by the Shockhoe Bottom Restaurant Week tasting menu since it was a 3- course ,fixed price($30.00)one and we actually had had other plans for dessert.Unfortunately,I was not wowed by the courses offered,particularly my over cooked pork loin and meager tomato salad.If we had been able to order just as we had intended,I think the dining would have been more satisfactory.The five of us were out for an enjoyable evening with other entertainment ahead and we certainly had a nice time.The waiter was friendly and competent.However,I don't plan on a repeat visit as I have many other places to repeat or try out."

  • "Lulu's dinner menu is packed with great takes on tradiational Southern Seafood items. We started with Spinach and Crab Dip, which was excellent and made even better by the fresh flatbeard. For dinner we had the the Pumpkin Seed Encrusted Mahi Mahi and the Risotto with Shrimp. The risotto that came with both meals adds a great deal of balance and was very flavorful. Meanwhile, the pumpkin seeded crust of the Mahi Mahi gave it texture and additional flavor I had never had with Mahi Mahi. Also, the crab avocado salsa with the Mahi Mahi was unique and combination of good flavors. Note, the salsa is cold, which may throw you off if you were expected it to be warm. It is wonderful regardless. The service was fabulous!"

  • "This is our fourth visit to LuLu's for brunch since we found it. Every time the staff is super nice and very attentive. The food is incredible and wallet friendly. Between us we have covered 2/3rds of the menu and everything is wonderful. The biscuits and gravy and pimento grits are my two favorite things!! Great restaurant down by the farmer's market, so be prepared to search for parking."

  • "Disappointing first visit may be our only one. Only two wait staff for a totally full Friday lunch crowd. If kitchen was also understaffed, that would explain the long wait for messed-up orders. Maybe just a bad day?"

  • "The only thing I can say about this place is EXCELLENT, SUBERB, OUTSTANDING & AMAZING!!! My cousin and I went here for brunch on Father's day, sans papas. The food was probably some of the best I ever had. It was flavorful, prepared to perfection. We bother had the lobster omelets’ and the french toast, delicious. I think I am going back to Richmond."

  • "We had a wonderful time at our post-graduation brunch. Seamus & co. were helpful when I had to change my number of guests and seated us right near the window. My out-of-town guests, new to Richmond, loved the meal, as did the rest of us. Our seating was a Saturday afternoon, so it was not loud and bustling, but it was not cricket-quiet either. Just right. The food was amazing and the portions were perfect. Thanks to LuLu's we made a nice family memory that we'll talk about for years to come. I plan on returning for dinner some time."

  • "The meatloaf sandwich with carmelized onions and cheese was superb. As was the mac and cheese. We found the wine list to be very short not very good. Little depth of character."

  • "I thought that the food at Lulu's was outstanding. The service however, was not great. The first course came out in relative time post order, then waited an hour before our second course came. People that were sitting around us that go there after we did, were already getting dessert by the time we finally got our second course. After watiing 30 minutes they told us there was a kitchen mix up and it should only be 5 more minutes, 20 minutes later out waiter came up and said our food was up next. 10 minutes later, we had our second dish. The third course came up rather quickely after, with parts of the dish missing because they ran out of food. I would've thought that with the wait, something would've been comped, but nothing was."
