This was our second time to Lula Cafe and it was better than I remembered. We had guests from out of town and we wanted to take them to a great, local place. Our meal was fabulous and the service was impeccable. It's a pleasure to dine somewhere where the wait staff is not clearing plates as people finish their meal, but wait until everyone is finished. I highly recommend Lula Cafe for excellent and unusual food and 5-star service in a relaxed atmosphere.

This place is a real neighborhood gem. I love going here for special occasions or date nights. Most recently, I went here for NYE and had a fabulous time. The food is spectacular, the servers and hosts are friendly, the ambiance is great. I'm a big fan of their cookie plate. I would recommend Lula a thousand times.

Lula's is wonderful! The food is fantastic. We got to sit right at the window on a wintery night and it was such a wonderful view. We had beet bruschetta, roasted vegetables and wonderful selection of cookies that my husband ordered for our dessert for my birthday. Food- fantastic. Wine- awesome. Services- very non-pretentious. When can we go again?

A group of seven ate at a large table here late on a Saturday evening. Five were in their mid-20's; and 2 , well let us just say... loving parents. The wine, the ambience, the extraordinary help by the waiter that took extra time to explain tastes.... it could not have been better. The food was exquisite. A must go to!

I have been here several times and the food has always been very good. This time it was our waiter that was an issue. He was pushy with food and drinks and ordering fast and then after we paid our bill we sat to chat for a minute and he asked if we needed anything else and when we said no, he said ok because there is another reservation for this table. It was a Thursday night at 9:30, there was no one waiting and didn't see anyone that needed to be sat. When you buy 2 bottles of wine and tip well I expect a more cordial experience.

Lula is at the top of my dining choices anywhere in the US. Always great food and service.

Excellent food and service. The butternut squash appetizer was heavenly. The spinach salad yummy. The spaghetti super and the chicken delicious too. Service helpful and attentive.

Love the food; I had chicken. And our server was excellent. The only problem, and this took away from the ambiance, was the noise level. Never sure why restaurants feel compelled to turn up the music and limit conversation.

Excellent! Went with my son and his wife for her birthday. They have been wanting us to try it. Everything was delicious. Great service too!

We went to this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was a solid meal and tasty. Our server was kind and helpful with suggestions. Portions were NOT large--my New York steak was 3 or 4 relatively thin slices of steak...not an entire steak, but the price reflected a whole steak. I would return here if it were convenient, but for the price and portions, I would be happy to explore other venues. Upon our departure, we each received a hearty muffin to enjoy for breakfast the next day--nice touch, indeed!

The food at Lula is always great and this visit was no exception. Great attention to detail and fresh, in season menu! Our server was also particularly great this visit--friendly, attentive while also still giving us time and space to talk, and he made some spot on recommendations for us to try. Love this place!

As always, Lula Café is amazing, with original, light and tasty menu, yet not weird combinations. You just are tempted to try everything! Reasonably priced too. Nice and good service.
Love this place.

Only drawback....noise level is LOUD.
Easy parking too.
