Had dinner here for NYE, and we were pleasantly surprised by the amazing food and service. Our waiter was very attentive and accommodating, and the food was delicious. Definitely coming here again!

You know how sometimes you order a few items and when the bill is presented, you say, "What happened? What did I get for all that money?" Lulu was like that -- we thought the prices were elevated for what we received. The service was nice but not remarkable, the venue was a bit loud and not climate-comfortable, and the food was OK, but not worth going back for in a city with so many bona-fide dining choices.

Unfortunately dinner for our party of six was something of a disappointment. I have not been to LuLu much in the past 5 years. Maybe twice. I was more frequent before that. The menu is solid-- pretty middle of the road with a few eye catching touchs. The food was was fine overall if unexceptiobal. The pork loin was praised by all. The fresh prawns and spaghetti was another high point. Everything was oversalted, however-- a classic restaurant cheap trick.
The glaring defect was the wine. I ordered a white chateau neuf ($59) it was dead. No debate about it. A good two years past it's pull date. Our waitress was good though and took it back. Playing it safe I then ordered a 2015 ZD Chardonnay($66). Completely standard predictable CA wine. Right? No. It smelled of paint thinner. No finish. I've had this wine several times. And this bottle was defective.
I've ordered 100s of bottles in restaurants and have probably sent back three before.
Getting two bad bottles in a row means the wine is being mishandled. Lulu's lacks someone in control of the cellar. The prices say they are serious about their wine. But the lack of quality control shows otherwise.
So if you go, enjoy the ambience. The food is okay. Skip the wine.

I took my team out For a holiday lunch and was so disappointed! That space is usually filled with tons of people; when we went, it was dead. Very disappointed because I expected a more festive atmosphere. Food was fine but I was sisappointed.
