We sat outside because it was a beautiful day. The food and drinks were wonderful. Wait staff was perfect. However, during the course of a meal, two people approached our table asking for money (who were not patrons of the restaurant, asking for money to help them out). I will not sit outside at this restaurant again.

The Thanksgiving experience was okay. Turkey delicious but the beef tenderloin cold. All of the sides were yummy especially the corn maque chaux. Lots of empty tables so it was surprised when they sat us at the busiest area near the wait station with crazy traffic and noise. We asked to move after 15 minutes which they allowed us to do. Not sure the quality of food we ate was worth $50 pp plus an auto gratuity. Might be a good place to come back under other circumstances for the bar food and distillery.

We went for the fixed menu thanksgiving dinner and had a nice time! The family style sides were fabulous as were the specialty cocktails but the main course was just average and not particularly hot. Our server was delightful and accommodating and made the overall experience enjoyable.

This was our first visit to Lula, so we didn't know what to expect. With our reservation, we were seated immediately and the wait staff was very attentive. The meal was excellent, as was the wine. We will be back!

This restaurant not only knows how to do drinks - the food is fantastic, too. And, they know how to do a sauce - do not skip the molasses fig sauce w the egg rolls or chicken sandwich. We tried half the menu and loved it all. The service was top notch!

I thoroughly enjoyed this space. There was good music, a good vibe and the staff was really nice. The food was pretty good, the only issue I had was my crawfish queso and the fries with my steak were cold. Other than that, it was great! Would definitely recommend!

We sat inside which is very large, has nice lightening , beautiful bar area and a view of a shiny distillery. Lots of outside patio seating facing St.Charles avenue. Limited but nice selection of food.Queso crawfish dip and fried wontons was our choice for our appetizer and I enjoyed every bite. Our waitress/hostess Mira was the best! She was attentive and informative but not overbearing. We felt right at home, we also bought a bottle of Lula Rum to enjoy in our home. Reasonably priced, nice atmosphere,good menu variety and great hostesses! Highly recommend for a informal enjoyable meal or a drink or two and some appetizers or just dessert and coffee don’t miss out♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

We found this restaurant almost accidentally, because we needed to find a place for lunch when in the area. We enjoyed everything that we tried so much that we returned a couple of days later to try the brunch menu. That was enjoyable, as well! The highlights were the crawfish queso and the grilled gulf fish. The cocktails were tasty, as well. The ambience inside was very comfortable, and brunch out on the patio was very nice. If we end up in NOLA again, we will definitely return to this restaurant.

We've been coming to Lula's for a couple of years. However, this time we waited at the front counter several minutes before someone greeting us and looked for our reservation. Once seated we waited more than 5 minutes before anyone approached our table even though there were several wait staff around talking...one was looking at the game. We love this restaurant and the food, but were let down a little by this experience. We do plan to go back...as it is our "go-to" restaurant in the area.
