    This is about dinner and a show, a rarity these days. We had a fabulous evening at the Patsy Cline Birthday bash. The place was packed but service was excellent. The food was not quite what we expected given the Mexican-themed menu. We were hoping for spicy snacks but these were not on offer on this night. The grilled salmon was moist and slightly ceviche-seasoned with a nice array of roast veg. The beef dish, which was almost sold out as we ordered, was satisfying but, like all brisket, a bit stringy. It was too bland for our tastebuds. The chcolate brownie was like a giant chocolate bar. Yum. We would never come here just for the food. It's all about the food and the fun.

    One of the nicest places I've been to, I love the design, with the raised platforms on the side for table and spacious main dining floor that turns into a dance floor. A little pricey for a regular night out, but it is really tempting with how often they have live shows and music.

    First the good: staff were friendly and accommodating. Music was a little loud during dinner but good selections by the DJ. Entertainment was lively and interesting. The drinks were excellent. Additional dessert options were available upon request, with birthday candle available as needed. Here is where they can do better: I was not wowed by the food. The guacamole was mediocre (shockingly so) and it was more chips than guac. My main (the salmon) was just ok. Others at the table ordered the same main (quarter chicken) but presentation was not consistent (one received lots of sauce, the other received hardly any and one received chicken breast instead of quarter chicken). Service.. I could see they were understaffed for how busy it was (hence I still left a reasonable tip).. that being said, it was VERY slow. In addition, parties who arrived after our table were served first (I have my opinions on why but will stick to objective facts here). Appetizers/mains did not arrive to the table at the same time or close to the same time. I am the one who recommended Lula to my companions so it was not a good look for anyone. Overall, that will be the last time I have dinner at Lula Lounge. However, to be fair, I very much enjoy their events, drinks, entertainment and atmosphere. I typically go there just for those purposes - and I always have a fantastic time! So I would still recommend Lula - just not for dining.

    The band is monotonous and loud. Every song is the same. The DJ makes up for it somewhat. I think this place used to be better, but there's so few places now to get up and dance. Too many places like Alley Cats have closed.

    I loved the dance lesson and the performers, absolutely love the DJ after the performance and how included the dancers made everyone feel. I highly recommend this place for a family gathering or a night out with your girlfriends. The food could be better, I had the chorizo tacos it was meh and the pastor, both really dry. The drinks were really good tho.

    The chicken mole sauce was overcooked, that my friend had to hold my plate, so I can cut it, took 45 min to have the drinks , the show was good. Just a little advice, cook ur chicken in a slow cooker for 3 hrs, and it is so tender and the mole the last 30 min. Coming from a chef thanks

    The band took too long of a.break last night. Should only be about 30 min. Max but yesterday was about over an hour. Too long. Especially because they had just started. The whole point is that you are going for the live band experience lot the DJ club vibe. The food was great. Ambience is great. Servers are usually great but we weren't so lucky yesterday... We felt a bit rushed. Overall we will go back again and give it a.try.

    1st time, great place. Teaching at 9pm was fun, no complaints, everyone was out to have a good time. The bar is located more or less right on the dance floor. Probably best to dance closer to the stage to keep away from patrons ordering drinks/carrying through the crowds.

    Lula LoungeResponded on July 30, 2022Thanks so much for taking the time to give us this review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the dance lesson and hope you'l join us again some time.
