Finally found a new place for great seafood dishes. Service was great, wish it was a little darker inside for dinner.

It was my first time and it was just what we wanted- a quick bite before a show in the neighborhood. The food was very good, the service was attentive and we were out in perfect time.

Great little restaurant! This time we used the best features of OpenTable to find a good restaurant. After visiting the Empire State Building Observatory we needed a close place to eat dinner. I reviewed the closest 15 to 20 restaurants, looked at the reviewers comments and picked Lulu & Me.
We had a great experience there. The food was outstanding, service was quick and pleasant, and it was a neighborhood hot spot. Spoke to the owner and told him how much we enjoyed the place. He was nice enough to send over glasses of Italian dessert wine compliments of the house!
We will go back!

Recently went here for the second time, for an early dinner on a Friday night. Food was excellent across the board, the wine and beer selection was good, and the service was super friendly without being overbearing. For desert, the raspberry walnut tart is very highly recommended.

Enjoyed LuLu & Me, would go back
I was surprised this comfortable gastropub in the Flatiron was not more crowded last Saturday evening. The menu is varied & includes fun "Snacks" such as olives & pickled eggs, along with small shareable plates & larger, but not overwhelming (and reasonably priced!) "Plates". We shared the white bean whip with whole wheat toasts, and then went on to the eggplant/zucchini rollatini and the white shrimp with vegetables and rice and enjoyed everything. The rollatini is the lightest freshest version of the dish I had ever had. The farro with spinach & proscuitto fell a bit flat I thought but everything else was really quite good. Also, it was fun to sit on 5th Avenue & watch NY go by. Definitely worth a visit.

Great selection of sandwiches and the fries were delicious! The basil mayo on the sandwich was unique and tasty!

Healthy Hassel-Free Lunch
I made a reservation for a window table for 2 which they honored. I was seated by two friendly people. The menu included 5 good salads and sides of beets or kale. I made lunch out of the lobster tail app and a kale side - delicious. Waiter was quick and attentive but not intrusive. A fine weekday lunch experience. I'm going back.

Nice night out
In the neighborhood for a special event, I chose Lulu & Me for it's proximity to the party I had to go to and for the menu. Although the menu is not extensive, there were a number of items in all categories that I wanted to try, and the prices were reasonable. A wonderful waitress explained unknown ingredients in both our drinks and the dishes, and it was all wonderful. A heppy find that I'd love to return to.

In a neighborhood with a few
In a neighborhood with a few worthy choices, add Lulu & Me to the list. It's a small-but-not-too-small place, with smart decor and a good vibe. Coming as a party of two on a Sunday evening, it was quiet but did not have that sad feeling so many restaurants do on their off nights. The high tops near the front are a nice place to sit. Service is friendly but not intrusive. Our waitperson was extremely helpful in parsing the differences between dishes with similar ingredients. All her suggestions were delicious. We shared a number of items but -- even as two women -- we were still hungry so ordered more. That is my one caveat: the dishes do add up so the final tally may come as a surprise. But I'm happy to pay for food that's worth eating.

Came here based on good Yelp
Came here based on good Yelp reviews. The restaurant itself was very charming and intimate. They had a decent wine list with some pretty reasonable wines by the glass. I got the salad - nothing special, just a regular field greens type mix. The best part was the fries - it was a huge portion and the green bean mayo was delicious. The waitress was friendly tho my only complaint was she barely checked on our table, even though the restaurant didn't seem very busy. Overall the restaurant is a great neighborhood gem, perfect for a date night or just catching up with girlfriends.

Found the service and food here surprisingly good. I had picked the place for the location, near an event and wasn't expecting much. Everyone was pleasant and responsive and the food was very tasty and reasonably priced - what more can you ask for. I also appreciated their healthy vegetable side dishes. I'll likely come back.

GOOD FOOD BUT QUITE LOUD
The food and service was quite good. The loudness from the bar which seemed quite popular with the Korean after work crowd was quite over the top. Overall it was good. Food was very fresh and tasty.

Great dining experience
The location isn't exactly a restaurant hub, but Lulu is a great little place with a lot of character and excellent food. We had a fairly early dinner reservation and the restaurant was empty when we arrived but the bar was bustling for happy hour. By the time we left at 9, the place was packed with large and small groups. It was lively but not overwhelmingly loud. The food was interesting, fresh and wonderfully prepared. Our server was fun and knew exactly what we needed in terms of timing our dishes (we ordered a random selection of apps and entrees) and keeping the drinks flowing. Great dining experience!

Great NoMad Spot
My wife and I stopped at LuLu after visiting Eataly. It's a great find in the neighborhood. Had a nice buzz, staff was very welcoming and the food was both creative and excellent. I had a pappardelle ragu and the zuppe di Pesci. Both were terrific with the sauce on the pasta and the broth in the soup being amazing. And the other ingredients were first rate. The wine list is diverse and reasonable. A falanghina and Calabrian red were perfect with our dishes. And the price is right. If you are looking for first rate food & wine in a casual, but bustling, environment LuLu is the place.
