drove an hour to try Lula tonight for the first time and we were NOT disappointed. We had the manager as our waiter and he literally treated us like royalty. He was helpful and kind. We tried the Coolinary New Orleans appetizer, entree, and dessert that was offered for $30 and it was literally some of the best food we've ever had. The bisque, pork chop, candied sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, bread pudding, and chocolate torte were all to die for. We are so happy we stumbled upon this place and we cannot thank the manager, Tim, enough for being so on top of everything and treating us so well. We will recommend this restaurant to everyone we can. We also bought a bottle of rum for $20 and my boyfriend said it is delicious. The distillery itself is beautiful as well! We will be back within a week or two to catch the Coolinary one more time before it ends!

Consistently great food and service and the drinks are superb (and that’s saying a lot in a city like NOLA known for its libations)

Excellent service, very cautious about social distancing, etc. food was very good and at a good price. Certainly a location you have to drive to (free parking) and there is not much else around there. Would definitely go back.

Came here as our first meal on a bachelorette trip and we had an AMAZING time! The service was excellent and staff were so friendly, and the food was delicious. Even with the covid restrictions they made extra effort to make sure we still enjoyed ourselves and had a great experience.

The food was beyond great! The service was great. This restaurant was recommended to me and I'm so glad I gave it a try. I came town to celebrate my Birthday and this gem didn't disappoint me. This was hands down my Favorite restaurant during the whole trip. It was six ladies in our party each of us had two entrees and not one disappointed, not one. The frozen BlackBerry daiquiri/drink was Heavenly. The best drink I had since visiting cuba. When I return to New Orleans, I'll definitely visit this gem again. I'll also, tell everyone I know about Lula restaurant when they come to visit New Orleans. Be sure to make reservations and have a somewhat empty stomach because you'll need to make room for every bite of their tasty food and drinks. The general manager is also charming.

The food Was excellent! The house distilled spirits were top notch. The service was fantastic. I was thanked for wearing a face mask when away from the table. They are doing a great job working around COVID restrictions and keeping the experience intact.

Delicious food, and comfortable distance from other tables. Service was a little slow but very friendly. Prices for some dishes a little high for the size of the portion, but everything was yummy. I've been here many times, and will continue to visit!

Very good drinks (loved the bottled gin and tonic), and food was good too. My only problem was they let another patron bring a non-service dog inside the restaurant. Then that person allowed the dog to eat off the plates. It just seemed a little unsanitary.

Not normally a brunch-goer. The entree portion of Chicken and Biscuits was terrific!

Lula was quite busy with both a special event AND with walk-in guests on Sunday at 12:30pm.

Always a good idea to reserve a spot on OpenTable first!

Excellent spot, great food, right on St. Charles. Good for family or friends. Large dining room so usually can accommodate if you need something on short notice. A good all around place that will probably catch on a bit more with time.
