    Extraordinary brunch food, service, comfort all with a casual, relaxed vibe. Our server, Mary, gave us terrific suggestions when we asked questions, she kept us in water, coffee and care (even brought extra napkins without us requesting them!). She is amazing - so warm and attentive. Our food was over-the-moon delicious - every bite a delight! Our guest has traveled the world and we weren't sure this would be a good choice for her and she LOVED it - naming it a top dining experience of all time. The pimento grits, the omelettes - all perfectly cooked (I loved the crab, asparagus and goat cheese omelette), the biscuits, the potatoes, gravy, shrimp, iced coffee - and the strawberry shortcake waffle dessert! We were all thrilled - and the heaters on the patio made for a perfect space to take our time, chat and catch up. Many thanks, LuLu's - we WILL be back. Well done! And on a holiday weekend - fantastic!

    It was loud the waiter was nice but only came twice to the table including delivering food and the bill. No refills etc. it was so loud we couldn’t talk to each other and the food was lack luster. We got chicken and waffles and while the waffles were red they weren’t red velvet. The chicken was dry and gross. Really disappointed, this restaurant came highly recommended.

    We used OpenTable for a 10:45am Saturday reservation and when we arrived (38 degrees outside) we were told if we didn't want to sit outside it was a 1 hour wait... We ended up sitting at the bar. I ordered an XL biscuit, bacon (4 slices) and avocado mash - the avocado mash was good, the bacon was not good - soft and chewy or hard and brittle, the biscuit was old. Going south and expecting a delicious biscuit, I was very disappointed. BLT was subpar... I do not recommend.

    The food was meh and the service was absolutely horrible. I had to ask a server to take our order after we sat for 40 minutes with no one coming over. It was also extremely cold on the patio where we were seated. Bad vibes all around.

    We visited Lulu’s while in town for the Richmond Marathon. The service was great and there was a cool vibe inside the restaurant. The food was outstanding. We had the French toast and the corned beef hash and a side of the caramel apple bread pudding. Great breakfast drinks as well with the bloody and a mimosa. Highly recommend!

    I loved the food and the service. I'm really not sure why places like this insist of putting music so loud at 10 am that you have to shout out what you want to say to another person. I really don't know why anyone would choose to shout during brunch to have a conversation. What is the reason why music is so loud? Food is great. Service is wonderful. Just be mindful that their music is super loud even during the day.

    Trendy little spot. Food came out very quick. It’s a nice venue. I had the lobster and biscuit. It’s a omelette with with lobster pieces. The omelette was cooked very hard but still delicious. Same with the biscuit underneath. Was beautifully seared but a little bit tough (but that’s just me being picky). I had a mix up with the reservation and the host didn’t really seem to care. They were open tables everywhere but she said I had to go to the back bar because my reservation was cancelled. Make sure you call if you aren’t there within 15 minutes of the reservation. I asked if could still get the credit even though I arrived late and she said replied no. Open table was great reached out to make sure I got credit for this reservation!!!

    The food was amazing, omelette was so big and fluffy. Not sure how they got the potatoes so moist but they were amazing. My husband was drooling over his biscuit! Also, we were not rushed at all, we sat for a long time and visited and they just let us alone...thank you!

    Food was outstanding! I had the Lobster Biscuit, which included a fluffy omelet with shredded lobster topped with a rich Hollandaise sauce. Even the coffee was good! I had a Blood Orange Mimosa, too—the best ever! The crowd was mixture of young urbanites and families. I’m a senior, but didn’t feel out of place. The music was banging! All in all, it was one of the best brunches I’ve had in Richmond.

    My reservation was for an inside table, reservation app explained you would be seated in which one you requested and may not be able to accommodate if you want to switch due to weather. They sat us outside. When hostess went to seat us, I explained I submitted for an inside one (due to chilly weather). I was told the restaurant filled up inside quickly and we had to be seated outside. I again explained my reservation was for inside. She said the app wasn't accurate about that and all they had was outside. Unfortunately this put a damper on our brunch. The food was good, our waitress amazing, but the incident (which I also felt was handled with a bit of snark/patronizing tone by hostess) put me off for the whole experience.

    Been there several times before and always had a great time until this new server treated us like crap. We had to wait almost 40 minutes for food, and it was half cold. After we done eating and was ready to leave, asked for the ticket and had to wait almost 30 minutes while she was just talking to a group of her friend that was dining there. We could’ve easily left without paying she wouldn’t know, we had to go inside at the bar and the bartender felt bad for us and closed for us. She needs to find another job; like stripping

    Thé menu is pretty standard. I would not recommend the Lulu’s benedict Eggs if you do not like to eat very salted. The level of salt is really too high which prevent you to appreciate the meal suggestion for the cooker: desalt the ham or switch to one very less salted as there is also bacon in the plate. Except this, nice place a lunch break. Nice service from Andrea

    Delicious brunch! Our table was ready upon our arrival. The hostess was friendly & restaurant seemed well staffed. Great menu for brunch, cocktails menu was wonderful & portions were perfect. Our server was great and provided everything we needed! Friendly & fun atmosphere. Music a bit loud, so be aware if looking for quiet place to chat. Tables for all party sizes seemed available to accommodate! Great outdoor seating available as well! Bar area was clean & well maintained too! Parties of 1 could certainly feel comfortable seating for brunch there! Great place, we will return!! Wonderful food with great menu!!
