Food and drinks were very good and definitely worth the money! However, service was slow but probably because everyone is understaffed. Our server was really nice and apologetic about it.

It was our 6th anniversary and we traveled from Rocky Mount, NC due to the raving reviews LuLu’s brunch has. Our server was fantastic and on top of everything despite how busy it was. Not only did i order a cocktail that was absolutely delightful but i also ordered the fried chicken biscuit and it was INCREDIBLE! My fiancé ordered an eggs Benedict and devoured it immediately. He was obsessed. We will absolutely be back to LuLu’s and will def recommend to our friends.

We were able to make a reservation the night before which I was thankful for, hearing how popular this place is. I got text alerts saying my table was ready and we were taken right in. The service was spot on and the food was delicious. The most difficult part was deciding what to choose. Please do yourself a favor and order the Brazilian mimosa. Yum! Everyone loved their meals.

Thisbwas my first time visiting LuLu’s. The food was amazing!! It took a while before the waitress came to take our order. That was my only concern. Overall, it was a great experience! I would definitely recommend this establishment and will be returning myself.

The service here is amazing, the food is amazing, the drinks - also amazing. My only qualm is that it’s a pretty loud place making it hard for conversation at some points. But I mean, it’s worth the noise level. ❤️‍🔥😘🙌

Best surprise we had in Richmond! We were just looking for a cool brunch spot and stumbled on this place… WOW! Food was so good that because we had an early flight out the next day, we actually ordered a 2nd brunch to go to eat the next morning. Had the brisket hash which was seasoned so perfectly that my husband tried to steal mine. He had the chicken and red velvet waffle that was also delicious. Would definitely eat here again

We had a reservation for 11am which I recommend. The food and atmosphere was amazing. Server was amazing with the blue hair but the Asian hostess was so rude. I would return for sure but I hope she is gone.

We had reservations the restaurant was not packed. The hostess was dismissive. We sat for 20 minutes before being acknowledge by the staff. The waitress started with an apology. But there seems to be a management problem.
My hash browns were cold and the egg whites Runny for a poached egg. My experience did not reflect a 4-5 star rating it has. Best part was eating outside on a beautiful day and a nice waitress.

After waiting 30+ minutes on the food everything was cold. The Manager came over and said she will remake all of the food. When the food came back my friends plate had hair on so we just left. We did tip the waitress because she had nothing to do with it but my time there was horrible and I don’t think I’ll go back.

The first time I ate at this place was on Friday 8/27 and we were waited on by Aaliyah. This day wasn’t busy, our food was hot, the waitress was amazing. Today my experience was horrible. First off I had reservations, and some of my guests were present which one of them had a small child with them. When I asked the hostess if I could sit down she had an attitude. A young lady with braids African-American was the hostess. Then the waitress (has green dye in her hair) seemed neglectful. When our food was brought out no one brought us silverware. I had to literally walk up to my waitress while she was waiting on other customers and say hello can we please have some silverware before our food gets cold. She did not come back and check on us after the food came out. Also food was cold. Then when she brought the water out to us none of the cups had tops on them. Then they had a nerve to charge us gratuity. When we told the manager we had an issue he seemed very nonchalant. I don’t know if it’s because it was busy that people were feeling pressured or anxious, but I was not pleased today. I feel like when I asked to speak to the manager one of the ladies seemed nonchalant when I asked. You all are serving the public think about that. Think about how you would want your experience to be if you go to a restaurant. I’m not sure what’s going on but Lulu‘s y’all need to get it together. PERIOD!

They should invest in fans for outdoor diners during the months. Also some kind of pest control for the flies. It is a bit much to swat flies, cover food as well as fan yourself. I love the food and ambiance bit due to COVID, I prefer outside seating. I wish they would make more comfortable for customers and staff!

Overall decent experience. The bartender was really nice and welcoming, and the ambiance was great. Very tidy and clean.

The bloody mary was just ok. The eggs on the benedict were not poached well which is a bummer - boarder line hard boiled. The potatoes were amazing, though!

We’ll definitely go back for another shot because it’s worth it to do so, but might not be the go-to for eggs benedict.

Sister-in-law in from out of state heard that lulus was the place for brunch. Food wasn’t that great. French toast mediocre and sausage gravy looked like somebody got sick on my plate. Not creamy too spicy. Definitely won’t be going back nor suggesting it to anyone.

First time in, Sunday Brunch, super glad we had reservations. We were seated promptly at our time. Waitress should have been a bit more attentive but the place was packed so not unexpected. The food had a lot of flavor , we all made happy plates. Give it a try but make reservations.

We live out of town and our family has been trying to get to LuLu’s for awhile. We had a 11:15am outdoor brunch reservation, but were not seated until noon. Our server and the ambience were excellent, but everything else was a complete fail. Our meals didn’t arrive until an hour after we ordered. The red velvet waffles were burned in areas and were flavorless. The cheese grits had a weird dirty pan taste to them and no flavor of cheese grits. We didn’t like the taste of the cornmeal fried chicken and the pieces were greasy and undercooked, yet the biscuit was so overcooked and burned on the bottom you couldn’t cut into it. The grits and two of the meals also arrived stone cold which didn’t help matters. We would have complained or sent something back, but after 2+ hours of waiting to be seated and get our food, we just wanted to pay and get out of there.

Found a video on tik tok of someone doing a lulus review and made a reservation since I was going to be in Richmond that same weekend. Best decision I could’ve made! It is right past the train station in this precious little slip I hadn’t seen before. The food was bangin, so SO yummy. We went for brunch and Cold brew was delish! The staff were SUPER welcoming and sweet from the hostess, to our waitress. We sat outside in this like kinda industrial plant ridden area at the front of the restaurant. Prices were good for the amount of food you get. Do yourself a favor and go.

I had no wait time. The waitress was very prompt and friendly. The food was good and came out quickly. However, the music was too loud to actually hear the party I was with and he was right next to me. I think of they turn the music down some, it over be better. I’ll definitely be returning though.

We went on a Tuesday and had a fantastic brunch. We would have been able to do this within an hour, but we did stay a little longer. I had the Atlantic Omelette which was just perfect. My coworker had the LuLu's Eggs Benedict, which was also quite wonderful. Home fries were crispy perfect, cheese grits were so tasty and the sweet tea was sweet.
I have been on the weekend before, but brunch during the middle of the week was such a treat!

It was raining and we were standing under the tent. A young lady told us we could not stand under the tent once she explained the why we understood, however the delivery was very much unprofessional even causing people to walk away. I think the delivery could have been better. However the food was amazing and our waitress was very nice!

our food was delicious. but our server walked from employee to employee just talking and doing hand shakes. we were trying to leave bc we had finished eating and had somewhere to be and we waited an excessive amount of time just for the check bc our waitress was socializing the whole time. other than that it was a cool place and had good food. they also allowed dogs on the patio which was cute!

I’ve been to Lulu’s numerous times and the food is generally excellent. I am a big fan of the potatoes among other things. Yesterday was great for me although my friend mentioned their was little lobster in the expensive lobster roll she ordered.
Aaliyah was our server and was extremely capable and possessed an outstanding personality.
