Portions are large and plates/bowls are too small. Food is okay. Happy hour drinks are reasonably priced and it lasts until
7.

Lunch at Lula was excellent, service impeccable. Notable menu items: (Fried Green) Tomato Stack, Grilled Veggie Salad with protein choice, and the succulent Grilled Gulf Fish. Nice wine choices too. Crowd was sparse for lunch, support this NOLA gem!

Waited 40 minutes and received no service. Never had opportunity to order. Had to go to bar to ask for glasses for water bottles on table...Bartender could only provide two of the four glasses needed. had to ask the hostess if we could get service. She took our drink order and offered free appetizers. Got tired of waiting and left. Found manager and told him what happened. He said “I’m sorry.”

We had the greatest of wait staff! She was attentive, happy and checked in on us often. The French Toast is the best I've ever eaten. I have the Fried Chicken breakfast and it was huge and outstanding. Take the distillery tour because it is a cool visit.

it was good food and good service! nothing that made me go WOW. but I did have a slight issue with common allergens not being listed. for a side, they serve coleslaw and it had walnuts on it and I feel like that should be mentioned on a menu. When I asked the waitress about nuts in the food, she was unsure of there being any nuts in any of the items on the menu... She said that she “had to ask around” about nuts being in the bread pudding and was unsure of what nuts where in it when she found out. I am not upset with her, because she was very kind about it, but the training for allergens should be MUCH better. Servers should know about common allergens and the ingredients in the food that they’re serving, especially when the menu is quite basic... I wish I could give a better review because the atmosphere was very nice/open, and the drinks were good!

Food was excellent, my daughter and I had the coleslaw salad, it was delicious, it had a creamy creole dressing that was perfect, very light but tasty. My granddaughter had a filet, she ate it all so must have been good. Service was excellent, the server treated my 10 year old granddaughter like a adult, never laughed or smiled when she mispronounced filet mignon. He was great, attentive but not overbearing. I've been wanting to try Lula for a while and was not disappointed, will be taking my husband with me to enjoy.

I really wish the boiled shrimp boils came with more than 4 shrimp it’s so saddening because it’s delicious. Maybe 6 would be good

The drinks and service were spectacular! Some of the food - especially the salads, ribs, and fresh cut fries - were amazing. Some things okay - not the biggest fan of the shrimp in the tomato stack appetizer. Overall a great restaurant that will be on our list to visit again. Definitely recommend!

Fabulous. Would absolutely recommend. This was the last dinner we had during our stay in New Orleans but I will make sure to go there first on our next visit. The food was awesome and the service from our waiter Devon was beyond what I would have expected. It wasn't very busy that night so we had the opportunity to talk more with him which was great. Plus I love the atmosphere and Lula's is right on the trolley line so easy to get to.

Interesting food. Shrimp "boil" on top of fries. The atmosphere was VERY loud. We were a table of 2 in a room with 2 tables of approx 12-15 people. That room definately needs some sound proofing. My husband and I could not even speak to each other during dinner as we could not hear each other of the noise of the other tables.
