    A great restaurant/bar with a fun atmosphere that's great for groups, parties, or events. We went for Sunday brunch with a 9:30am reservation. It was quiet but quickly filled up within the hour. Despite our server having to care to a number of other full tables, they were attentive and made sure we always had what we needed. The food was delicious and the drinks were strong. I highly recommend the Brazilian mimosa.

    Food was delicious! Service was great! The only con for me was the noise level. The overhead music and conversations from near-by tables was so loud that I had to yell to my friends in order for them to hear me speak. We asked to move outside to the patio and we did. We enjoyed our meal without the loud noise.

    Lulu's came highly recommended for my daughter's graduation brunch. We sat outside. No ambiance. Service was fine. Table was too small for the 4 of us plus the huge plastic cups of water and our meals. Very uncomfortable. Two of us had eggs benedict. The ham was so salty that it was inedible. The other dishes were disappointing as well. My dream of a beautiful outdoor brunch to celebrate my daughter definitely did not happen at Lulu's.

    The overall experience was great but some attention to detail is needed in the kitchen. I got the shrimp and grits which were topped with poached eggs and asparagus. The toppings were all hot and delicious, the shrimp were large and tender… but the grits were cold. Clearly they were plated long before the rest of the dish was composed. I also had coffee which, while flavorful, was lukewarm.

    Lulus is a great brunch spot. Located in a prime downtown location with many parking options near. The food is good, but definitely not the same quality from when 3 year ago. The potatoes aren't the same and they've decreased portion size. The service is always friendly but can be a bit slow. The drinks are okay. I'm a fan of the mimosas, especially with Kraken. Of course the strength depends on the bartender, but usually they are good. A reservation is required most days and they sometimes are booked weeks ahead, so plan accordingly.

    My scrambled eggs came out in block with cheese sprinkled on top. My bacon came to the table burned and in pieces. Waitress was nice and took the bacon back to the kitchen brought fresh but it dropped with grease. I just returned the eggs no remake needed. Red velvet waffle was the only saving item for the experience, it was delicious.

    Unfortunately my dining experience wasn’t great at LuLu’s. It took over 45 minutes to receive our food, eggs were runny when asked for fried hard and they charged me for the correct/replacement eggs. Also the quality of food was not on par with other local eateries.

    Our first visit at Lulus for breakfast. Food was amazing and surpassed our expectations. We chose the dishes that we've read in other reviews and it did not disappoint. Red velvet waffles are definitely a hit. My son loved them. And I chose the Atlantic omelette and it was delicious. My favorite is the home fries. I truly enjoyed the spice on them. We most definitely will be returning soon!

    Had brunch with my mom and my two Aunts. The waitress was very patient and everyone's order was correct. The food was delicious and the service was great. I had the Atlantic Omelet and the pimento grits. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the grits were actually good (because I never tried pimento). My Auntie C and Auntie M had made to order omelets and they were very pleased. They were complaining that the couldn't eat it all. The restaurant is in Shockoe Bottom and the parking in on the street (paid). Worth the trip.
