Lula Restaurant Distillery
We are quintessentially southern with a distinct Louisiana influence. We are Lula Restaurant-Distillery.
As the first and only restaurant-distillery in New Orleans, Louisiana and in the Southeast US, we promise to offer you an incredible experience in the shadows of our copper still and along the historic streetcar line of St. Charles Avenue.

Ordered the blackberry ribs, sugar cane pork skewers, and crawfish Mac n cheese to split. Everything was delicious !! One member of our group got the gumbo which she said was very salty and the slaw salad with fried oysters- the oysters were amazing but the salad was too much slaw (a whole plate!) and could have used some salad greens.
Waiter was excellent. Food was amazing just wish there was a little more of it lol...drink was very strong. Apparently we missed bottomless vodka but that's okay.
Lula was great! Had reservations during the parade. Food , cocktails, and service were excellent!
Kaegan, my server, went above and beyond for on Valentine's Day with a parade passing in front of the restaurant. He was great and made me a loyal customer. The lamb chops are amazing as well. Lula is worth the trip, and make sure you ask for Kaegan and the lamb chops.
We went to lulas on Valentines day before the Parades. They had so many tables open yet earlier I had tried to get a reservation and they said they were booked. So I got one through open table.
Our waiter Ryan was super friendly and attentive. He did a great job The burger was excellent and the chicken sandwich was good but we both wish we had gotten the burgers.
We have ate at Lulas several times before. Weve enjoyed all the food...especially the mac n cheese.
Service and atmosphere was great.
The food was amazing. Service was slow at times due to the brunch crowd. The atmosphere was loud , but overall it was a great experience.
Great service and atmosphere! We were the first clients of the day, but everything was ready and the service prompt. The food came right out and was delicious!
Our second visit to the restaurant (on a busy night). Oyster sliders, amazing! Must do the fried green tomatoes. I rolled the dice and had the skirt stake... it was very tender and tasty. My wife had a salad with flash fried oysters and couldn't eat them all. This restaurant is very nice, very clean, and has a very nice atmosphere. Reasonably priced for NOLA. It is becoming a regular stop.
Great food, service was outstanding. Reservation was on time and host was friendly.
Three of us went for dinner on a slow Tuesday evening. All three of us had great food, the staff was friendly and the service was good. Clean place with nice decor and good drink and appetizer specials if you get there before 7:00.
Not bad. Would definitely go back.
Had a delightful Sunday brunch here. Great location and service and excellent food. We were pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t crowded.
Very poor experience overall. We first had drinks at the bar which were poorly mixed. When seated for dinner, we had two different waiters come to our table at different times, as they were confused as to who had responsibility for the table. Our food came nearly an hour after we ordered and the appetizers and entrees all came at once. Food was OK, but nothing special. There are too many good restaurants in town to go to a place like this.
Friendly service. Not the ordinary menu. Loved the pork skewers, the coconut chicken soup, the rabbit and skirt steak. Even though we were full we had to try the desserts which were delicious too. We must return to try other items in the menu. We didn’t get to try their drinks but interested in trying next time.
Food was amazing and reasonably priced! Fun spot!
We all enjoyed our food & drinks. The pork osso bucco was delicious. I don’t normally order pork when I dine out, but I highly recommend this dish.
SHARP METAL WIRES were in my food! Imagine my surprise when I felt something weird in my mouth and it turned out to be random metal! There's no reasonable or logical explanation as to why metal should have been in my food. I ordered the buttermilk cornish hen, which came with dirty rice (the whole meal was dirty in my opinion) and coleslaw. The waiter’s handling of the situation was very lackadaisical. He only said “let me show them in the back” and upon returning “can I get you something else”. Well NO, I don’t want anymore of your food BUT an apology would be nice. The manager didn’t come over to apologize either. If there’s ever a reason for a customer to receive a personal apology from management, this was the time. The waiter took the meal off my check but still charged me for my drink. Seriously?? Your food almost caused me serious physical harm and you want $9??? Lula should be thankful that they did not cut the inside of my mouth or that I didn’t swallow them. I may as well talk about the taste of the food while I’m at it. I like salt, BUT the Cornish hen was so salty that it was sickening. The dirty rice was a poor attempt and the coleslaw was nothing special. This was a terrible first introduction to a restaurant and there will be no second chances here!
This was my first time at this restaurant and it was great. TJ was our server and he was amazing. The drinks were pretty strong, maybe I felt that way because I'm not a big drinker☺. I also felt the drink was a little pricey for the size of the glass. Since it was a daiquiri, I thought it would be in a larger glass. The crab avocado appetizer was absolutely one of the best appetizers that l have ever eaten. I highly recommend this place and I will be back.
A fun space on St Charles Ave w/ great food & service. Close-by parking usually available.
Will definitely continue to dine here regularly with only 2 regrets:
1. Strong, overpowering smell of whatever spray is used to clean tables.
2. Live music is good quality but way too loud, at a performance, not background level.
Both of these things are easily addressed so I'm hoping owner will.
We loved Lula! We heard positive things from a friend, and decided to try this place for dinner when family was in town. We really enjoyed everything - the drinks, the food, the service, and the ambiance. We brought a toddler with us, so we went a little early and as we were finishing up, there was a live band that sounded pretty good! The server was very attentive and accommodating, and everyone really enjoyed the meals (and the leftovers that we couldn't finish). Highly recommend Marge's tomato stack as an app and anything with the mac n cheese (veggie plate, crawfish mac n cheese). You won't be disappointed. Also, the space is very open, and there were a few large groups dining, so this is a good place to go for an event like a bachelorette party or birthday.
Went for my mother's Birthday. She really enjoyed her food and drink. Plan ro go again.
It was very nice. Our server John was enthusiastic and very sweet! He besides the amazing food was the highlight of our visit!
Always have a good experience at Lula! Good food! Good service! An old standby.
fun place to go and the food and service both make it worth the while!
Outstanding! The ribs are delicious! The shrimp and grits were great!
Love the atmosphere!
Lively Saturday brunch at Lula. The spirits are really good and the food was great. Also had a fun tour of the distillery with Rocky.
Wow! What an amazing restaurant! Everything about this restaurant exceeded my expectations. The food was great, the drinks were unforgettable and the staff was very friendly. If you like rum, you’ll love Lula’s!
First time and it was very enjoyable. Our server Ryan was outstanding. Great recommendations, and totally let us move at our pace. The fried green tomatoes were incredible! We both had the chicken sandwich, one of us with the egg. Best chicken sandwich in town.
This is a distillery as well and the basil, lemon vodka drink was outstanding. I had the dark and stormy...rum and ginger beer. Overall food and drink was excellent! Recommend without hesitation!
I love the brunch! Amazing cocktails. One of the best spots in NOLA
Very nice place, we went for a date night. Drinks and food were very good! And the customer service was great, our waiter kept checking on us to see if we needed anything. Will be back again!
Lula has become one of my go to places. The ambiance is always fun and vibrant and the service has always been impeccable. On our last visit, I had the grilled hanger steak with two eggs over easy and grilled veggies and my best friend had the grilled hanger steak salad, which quite honestly we could have easily split. Both steaks were cooked to perfection. The portions were huge. And lets not forget the $20 vodka bar for brunch on Saturday and Sunday. They have every kind of set up for your vodka that you could possibly imagine.
Great food great service!!!
Great food from the hot garlic shrimp bowl to the blackberry glazed ribs.
Varied menu with a special note to each preparation. Delicious rum and coke distilled onsite!
Fried pickled squash was awesome. Crawfish Mac N Cheese was awesome. Bloody Mary’s were awesome. This place was awesome.
New Year’s Eve celebration, great food and service!!
