Seemed to be a big hype. I had to go out of my way to pre- pay for my special valentines dinner because I was told that even though I made reservations, there was no guarantee the restaurant would honor the reservations if I didn’t pay in advance. The google address for the Lula Bistro sent me to a whole other area in a not so friendly part of town. I relayed this to restaurant staff, it was met with a shoulder shrug. I had to more than just confirm but reassure them I was going to be there numerous times. I expected quite the show and was an “OK” experience. Was charged for two glasses of sparkling wine that I was told was included in my initial dinner. By this time I was really over the evening and just let them have it. I understand the concept this place is going for but it lacks the staff and customer service. Food is good but honestly I can name a half dozen other places in the city that may be just as good or better. But whatever they MAY lack in taste, they make up in service, care and experience.

Es una experiencia bonita, los sabores son muy, buenos, el salmón, el pulpo, el Lechón deliciosos!!!! El personal brinda un servicio muy profesional, sin embargo parece que le hace falta algo a la experiencia, es un buen lugar aunque la relación costo beneficio podría mejorar. Recomendable.

The original chef left the restaurant... the food is not as half as good... the service is great.. but I don’t think is worth the price to pay the degustation menu for what this new chef is selling.... this was my favorite restaurant .. and I do travel around the world.... but this is not what it was... not going back... sorry to se the Chef go... I will try to follow the chef..

My boyfriend and I enjoy trying new restaurants, and in Guadalajara there are plenty. Lila Bistro really exceeded our expectations, it’s a small and cozy restaurant with beautiful decorations and ambiance, it’s very romantic. The food was delicious and the servers were very professional and nice.
Highly recommended!!!!

One of the most delightful dinners I have had in over a year. That includes stints at Central, Maido and Pujol [for you die hard foodies]. What comes from the kitchen here is beautiful and artistic.The flavors are bold, compelling and inventive. Its hard to pick a favorite - The Ensalada de Hojas, the Chef Darren's take on Chiles en Nogada [I won't ruin the surprise but its playful and stunning] or the fabulous rift on Lechon [which was moist, flavorful and not greasy]. The chef is a genius. Clara, the powerhouse who brings this all together, and her hospitality team are amazing and have made a special place they should feel proud of. I have spent the last year eating at well over half of the 2018 Best Restaurants in Latin America and it is a travesty Lula is not even mentioned on that list. That needs to change in 2019.

En general es un que me gustaba, el lugar se nota cansado.
La atención al detalle se ha perdido. La comida fría... quizás es el estilo actual que le quiere dar Darren Walsh, que por cierto se nota su falta de presencia, un lugar de autor sin el autor.

Long weekend in Guadalajara visiting friends.

We had the 6 & 8 course menus. The quality, presentation and flavor was impressive. Very interesting wine selection to pair with each course.
Attention to detail was great. Waiter was clear and detailed while presenting the ingredients and cooking techniques.
Definitely enhanced our overall staying in GDL


Viajamos desde Houston a Guadalajara para visitar amigos durante Memorial Day weekend.

Disfrutamos del menú de degustación de 6 y 8 platos, con maridaje de vino.
La atención fue excelente, la calidad de los platos y du presentación nos impresionó mucho. Nada que envidiar a degustaciones similars que tuvimos en cDMX o New Orleans.

Definitivamente ensalzó nuestra experiencia en GDL.

Tardaron mas de 90 minutos en traer 2 tiempos, le comentamos a la mesera que teníamos mucha hambre y que habían tomado mas 90 minutos y no más nos habían traído 2 tiempos de los 6 que esperábamos y su respuesta fue : que se debía a que era 10 mayo(el restaurant estaba a la mitad de su capacidad).

Totalmente en desacuerdo con su respuesta, cuando solicité hablar con el gerente para que me ayudara con la situación me comento que no había ningún responsable que resolviera este problema.

Si se reserva con tiempo y no están preparados para el 10 de Mayo, que lo expliquen al momento
de hacer la reservación y así poder considerar otros lugares que son capaces de atender a clientes.

No es recomendable debido al mal servicio y mala actitud del personal involucrado.

Excellent, well-prepared 12 course tasting menu with wine pairings for 4 persons. Indicative of French-Mexican Fusion cuisine with European attention to excellent well-paced service. The experience was just over $750 USD with one pre-dinner drink per person and although I knew it would be very expensive, having a menu presented to us with various options would have been better than a verbal explanation of a tasting menu without explicitly detailing price.
