    Loved the food and drinks but if you are at all on the large size get a table because the booths are really tight

    The service at Lala Lu was above and beyond. We went on a quiet night for our anniversary and they couldn’t have been more attentive and timely. You’ll see in my review that the food was not up to par, but DO VISIT THIS PLACE FOR GOOD VIBES, DRINKS AND SERVICE!! They have a whole separate martini menu and a fabulous selection of wines by the glass and bottle. It is an a very odd spot in between a Ruby Tuesday’s and Courtyard by Marriott. I hope to come back for drinks even though it is out of the way, but not for food. Unfortunately, the food was not good especially for the price. The pasta was handmade but very very undercooked, and I love Al dente pasta, but you can tell that this pasta was cooked for maybe 3 minutes max. Which was a shame because the pasta sauces were SO GOOD!! I LOVED the arrabbiata and they made a beautiful traditional basil pesto. Then I had the ribeye and asked for it medium rare. *sigh* It was well done and I could taste the ashes from the grill they used (not the good kind of char). I felt so so bad sending it back, but our waitress was very kind about it. When I received a new plate, it came back very rare and unseasoned. Fortunately that did taste better even though it wasn’t what I asked for. So I was content with that since the turn around was quick!! Then my partner got the veal chop, good but nothing special unfortunately. Then he also got a cappuccino and it was.. meh. It was all disappointing considering Lala Lu is advertised as an Italian restaurant with primi secondi plates and the quality was well below average. I do love the smaller portion sizes, but not worth the price. I hope that I just came on an off night since it wasn’t a weekend night, but I’m not sure I’m willing to try the food again.

    Setting was gorgeous (in a quirky, over the top opulent way) and the food was very good. My only issues were: we arrived an hour after service started and the restaurant was already out of the dish I wanted (not a special, just gnocchi); our bread was nice and warm, except in the spots it was ice cold; our waiter got increasingly less attentive as the evening went on, to the point that instead of bringing the requested dessert menus, he simply brought the bill.

    The dinner was high priced especially for the lobster. I was so disappointed.

    The ambience was really cool, and I appreciated the craftsmanship of the plating of the dishes. But my friend ordered the Bootylicious drink for the soul purpose of having it in the butt cup, and they told us after they brought her drink in a regular cup that there were too many butt cups on the floor. She didn’t even drink her drink. She only wanted it for a photo opportunity and they still charged us the full price of $13 even though it was not in the cup it said it would be in.

    We had a good time tonight - I’d say it was a 7/10. Love the ambiance here and the overall vibe here. There was live music which was great! We went for the unlimited fries and $6 martinis but never got offered more fries. Also, I noticed other tables had water bottles to refill their water glasses on our own, we did not and had to ask for more water multiple times. So, overall OK.
