LuLu’s was awesome! Their menu is extensive. No matter what you like for brunch, there’s something for you at LuLu’s! Can’t wait to go back and try one of their cocktails.

The food would have been spectacular if it were hot. Being luke warm it was good. The service from our waitress was lacking but someone helped when I asked.

Third time we’ve been. Worth the hour drive. Tried the shockoe Florentine this time - delicious! So glad we made a reservation. We still waited a bit and there always seems to be someone obnoxious at the bar, but otherwise, great food and service.

Amazing as usual. LuLu’s always manages to shine as the best brunch in Richmond. Great cocktails, the most appetizing and filling entrees. I will time and time again come back here and bring as many people as possible.

We had Kaitlin as our server and she was friendly and very accommodating. The red velvet waffle and toppings was excellent. The corned beef Hash was not what was expected and too spicy for my friend. Kaitlin said no problem what else would you like and another plate came within a short amount of time.

This restaurant is rightfully known for its great brunch so I was curious about its dinner. I went with friends to celebrate a birthday, and the food met my high expectations. A seafood risotto contained lobster, scallops, and shrimp and was such a value for the price. We shared a dessert of moist and delicious bread pudding. Our waiter guided us through the selections and told us about future plans which include outside seating. Please do not let the construction keep you from this gem!

My table wasn’t ready after I made reservation for 1 o’clock we weren’t seated until 1:30. My party of 16 we’re separated in to different booths sitting back to back. After I was informed that we would have sitting together general manager or front of the house we’re very nonchalant about my concerns. My check was wrong 4 time, the food was cold and late. Service over all poor

Ambience is great..area around restaurant is a little sketchy, but don't let that scare you off. Service was great, menu options great, food good- just short of great-needed a little bit of salt(except the bacon which is delicious!) Would definitely eat there again and recommend

We visited Lulu's on a Sunday for breakfast, and enjoyed the experience. The waitstaff is energetic and capable, the atmosphere open, industrial/artsy and clean. The food was great, arrived quickly and correctly. My crab omlet was terrific, with goat cheese and fluffy eggs. My one complaint is that my second cup of coffee (brought in the mug, rather than poured at the table) was not hot. Strong, but not hot.

My husband and I stopped here on our way through Richmond on a Saturday night. We both had the Seafood Risotto, as our waitress highly recommended it. It was delicious! We both enjoyed our meal and would definitely stop here again when in Richmond. Great service and a wonderful meal.

This was our maiden voyage to Lulu's ... we will return and insist that others come with. Each of us were wishing our beautiful and scrumptious plates of incredible edibles would have at least included one more bite. Abby anticipated and attended to our every need with such infectious joy and delightful conversation.
Our experience was way-off-the-chart positive!
