Good music and ambiance, the food was poor and service could be better.
Wanted to listen to some live jazz music and Lula Lounge was one of the choices. Our last minute reservation meant we had a table near the back of the lounge, which turned out to be a perfect spot. We had an enjoyable prix fixe meal - delicious and ample - while listening to some great jazz. This was followed by a Salsa lesson and finally practicing what we learned to an 11 piece band. It was a really fun evening. Great place to go with friends.
Fantastic show!!! Delicious dinner!
Our waiter, Zahara was fantastic and all the crew that work the Lula Lounge, always make their guests feel welcome and comfortable. Food and Ambiance great! Love the music at Lula!
If your looking for entertainment and dancing this is the place. Food was very disappointment. No flavor and it seemed rushed.
I came here with my husband for my 50th birthday and had so much fun. The salsa lesson was great and the bad was amazing! I had the best waiter Francisco who really made my night special...he went out of his way to make sure that I had everything I needed....if you go to Lula lounge I hope you are lucky enough to have Francisco!
I brought my date and hoped-for one day partner for an evening of jazz music; Lula Lounge exceeded expectations, the music and ambience were great, very romantic, we had a memorable evening. Service was great. We'll be back!
Great room. Good sight lines. Relaxed vibe. Great 'world music' venue with a latin flair.
As always I had the best time. The food the band the people and the staff were amazing. I would and do recommend Lula to everyone
I already left a review on Google but it was great! The food (especially the calamari) could have been better but overall it was really nice! Great place to get together with friends for a night of dancing and fun!
It was quite the experience!
We were there for the music. We have gone to hear Gary Morgan with his Jazz Pan Americana for many years. The solid food & splendid service are a decided bonus. The renovations in progress great to see happening. New basement washrooms are great.
I was extremely disappointed for my birthday at Lula this year. What was once a place I loved and had a memorable birthday a few years back unfortunately did not hold the same weight this year.
From the confirmation that our reservation was able to be increased to more people, yet when we arrived, there wasn't enough room for even the original 8 people at the table they gave us.
We waiting for over an hour before our initial drink order arrived, and that was after we asked our server and another twice to bring them.
Half of my party had to stand at the bar and couldn't order food, because of the reservation mix up and not room to accommodate the extra people. Lula then proceeded to charge all of the non-eating people $15 cover charge, as if it was their fault they were starving and couldn't eat!!!
They changed the menu and no longer offered the two meals we had actually enjoyed the last time and come back for.
Further drinks were impossible to order from our serve because she was too busy to check in with us and/or took them but never brought them.
Overall, it made my birthday very uncomfortable and unenjoyably as I was worrying about my guests the whole time.
Great show! Loved the music!!!! Coming back every year for the Sinatra show.
This was my 2nd time listening to live music with a JazzFM group. Absolutely enjoyable experience!
Awesome food, great drinks! Jerked Chicken and a staff that aims to please. Lawd the bar can make a drink. The music of Kollage and the great Diane Braithwaite. There is a word....perfection. If you don’t go here you have missed the very best of Toronto and shame on you!
Great staff, 3 of us spent over $250, with only 2 alcoholic drinks.
Without food, there is a $15 per person cover charge. So that offsets it a bit. But the portions were small and a bit dry.
I’d go back to party, but not eat.
Most importantly, ask for the price of anything you are offered to eat or drink. Some things like Caipirinha is $11 and served in a small glass. NOT WORTH IT!!
I would never come back here. The venue itself was nice but the entertainment was awful. We came for the Krystal Voice who was supposed to be on from 9pm-1am. She didn’t come on till 10:30 and she sang lik 3 songs and left. I wish we got our 20$ entrance fee back because it was completely not worth it. False advertising beware of this place....
Charity event in pleasant surroundings. A very good dinner special Latin inspired as per this venues roots. They make a really tasty Classico Mojito. The waitress was a delight and after orders are taken they have staff to bus the food to your table which works best in this busy venue for food to arrive still hot from the kitchen.
We arrived at Lula and we were greeted by a couple of welcoming employees. Our waitress was nice, even though she made mistakes with a drink she was always friendly and willing to correct things promptly.
The food portions were huge with exception of the desserts. Food came quickly and it was delicious as well as nicely presented.
The salsa class gets everybody in the mood, but the place gets too crowded to be able to dance comfortably.
The live music was excellent but a bit too loud.
I would go again if they fix the problem with the sound and stay if there was more room to dance comfortably.
Excellent live jazz with some first rate performers.
Food is very good, but quite pricey.
We Thank Lula Lounge and staff for helping us celebrate a wonderful anniversary. Thanks to the management team, service staff and everyone. We were blessed with two glass of Champagne to celebrate our special day which was unexpected and pleasant.
The food was wonderful and the music, venue, decor was impressive. Parking was convenient which made the whole night magical.
Thanks for your hospitality we enjoyed ourselves immensely!
Food is edible, but that is about it. Atmosphere is excellent. Music/entertainment is excellent. Service is good.
Excellent place to have fun either if it's for a birthday, anniversary or just to hang out with friends.
Dance class instructor...one of the worst classes we have ever attended. Instructor absolutely not good as a dancer or a teacher.. please consider getting a Latin instructor with some rhythm, good dance skills and personality.
This is a music venue, food is acceptable, service good. Go for the music you like.
lula lounge is a toronto gem. great staff, good food, fabulous live music, eclectic atmosphere
Very good location for an energetic night out. The band, music, and dance instructor were really good and kept the crowd moving all night - even those not on the dance floor. On the weekends, this is more of a club than a restaurant, so come prepared to dance!
I moved to the GTA in 1997 and in 2005 made the unfortunate choice to leave. Came back to visit with a special someone to show her all that as out her all that southern Ontario has to offer and found this gem in a hotel tourist magazine. Needless to say we had a blast!!! Good food, great staff, dance lesson and great music. Perfect way to close out our vacation. Thank you Lula, until next time, carry on.
Lula Lounge is a nice venue. I've been a few times for live events. The service was courteous and prompt. I don't feel like the food was worth the value. Though my salmon was prepared nicely, it's not a satisfying portion for the price especially considering I spent an additional $20 for entry to the restaurant for the CD Release party that I was attending. The guacamole was clearly store bought and a very small portion for the price. The ambiance is nice, though it was very chilly inside initially. Requests to turn off the air conditioning and fans were granted, but then it was a little warm, so room temperature should be regulated somehow. Not a bad evening, overall though.
Lula lounge never disappoints me! My friends and I love this place: great for salsa music/ dancing , the band is amazing, food is excellent!!
Amazing in one word. Excellent live music, latin jazz, cuban,
the menu offers very interesting dishes
I would give it A+ for ambiance
Our overall experience was excellent. I especially enjoyed the "Patsy Cline tribute" and the surprise "Glen Campbell" .
We arrived late (due to TIFF traffic) , but were ushered through the crowd at the rear of the club without incident.
The staff are friendly, professional, and always eager to help with suggestions, i.e. wine choice, and always making sure we have a supply of water at the table.
The entertainers were amazing. Being a Patsy and Glen C fan I thoroughly enjoyed every moment.
I will bring more friends the next time I visit Lula.
Thank you for a wonderful evening!
Music is always good but after the renovation I was expecting better food and a better wine list. Even the new bathrooms stink. I'm not going again.
We had a fab night celebrating my friend's 60th Birthday. Appropriate noise level, music, fantastic food. Overall we all loved it!
As usual another great evening at Lula Lounge enjoying a great show - Calypso Mucho! The food was awesome, attentive staff and the venue is perfect for music and good companionship. And hats off to Howard - the best sound engineer in the city!
Wonderful and fun atmosphere! Friendly staff and waiter. DJ was great! Fun dance teacher! Loved watching all the dancers and great seeing people of all ages come together in one spot.
Lula is a great place for a night out of partying and great food!
Lula Lounge is my favourite place to go to for great live music and really good food!
The sound technician does a fabulous job when the band is on stage - never too loud or unbalanced - key to a great performance.
The staff is wonderful - always there to see that everything is going okay.
Great ambiance - love it there!
Always a fun time @ Lula. Such a unique venue in the city.
Lula Lounge brings in good and quirky performers. The food is tasty but mediocre with very limited choice. Beer is good. Worth eating there to secure good seats for show
