    This was my second visit, and first time in 9 months. The food and drinks were fantastic, and the staff were kind. The owner was there painting a new mural, and we got to chat with her to hear about her vision for the restaurant. This is the kind of place we need to support. It is great.

    Upon arrival we went to check in and waited for about 10 mins. before anyone came to greet us. After which the hostess pointed to the only remaining table on the first floor, so at this point all tables are occupied. After another 10 minutes we were given water and the menu. We had questions regarding some items on the menu and the hostess/server could not answer them because she said no English. We took this as she didn’t speak and/or understand English. I ordered the Chicken Empanadas and they were out so I ended up ordering the Cubanito Sandwich and it do not disappoint. My daughter had the Teriyaki Salmon and reported it as being flavorful and the Salmon seasoned well and cooked to perfection.

    Food was absolutely delicious. We had the empanadas for a starter. The sauce that accompanied them was superb. I chose the quinoa ceviche which was a well balanced, creative entree. My husband ordered the carne asada. The steak, melted in your mouth and was well seasoned. They have a lot of homemade beverages which we ended up ordering with a shot of vodka. This is a missed opportunity for the restaurant, because these were way better than the cocktails on the menu. Recommend the lime one. Overall, it’s a great date night spot.

    LULO KitchenResponded on January 3, 2023Hi Ashley! sorry to hear that your experience was disappointing, that of course is not what 90%+ of our diners experience. New years eve, we closed at 9pm, and were conscious our team members needed to head home. Sorry we were out of Christmas Ale!!

    This place is like a hidden gem! I’m so glad we ended up here. It’s deceiving when you enter as it looks like this cute little cafe but walk downstairs and it is gorgeous and a great vibe! The music made us want to get up and dance but the food made us sit down and devour every last morsel. From the limonada to the empanadas, to the Cubanito, to the tostones you cannot go wrong! So glad we found this place to satisfy our need for amazing authentic flavors!

    We were the only patrons in the entire restaurant during a mid-week dinner service which likely contributed to the experience. Front of house/waiter/bartender (one person performed all functions which was likely a reflection of how slow it was) was exceptional and the bright spot of the evening as were the drinks. Food was not memorable (ordered a variety of apps and entrees, party of four) with two of the entrees coming out cold. Disappointed given other reviews and the fact we were entertaining out of town guests.

    Traveling from out of town, at first glance a little skeptical. Since, it looks like take-out when you first walk in. Dining area is okay, it was a little too dark. Although the ambience wasn’t there, the service and food was amazing. The waiter was very patient to explain each dish and origins. I highly recommend the food - flavorful but not overpowering. Everyone was very friendly. Decided to stay for dessert, since we want to support the local business. All three courses were amazing!

    This restaurant was a pleasant surprise while visiting Cleveland, Ohio. We sat on the lower level, and the decor was simply beautiful, and the music gave this place a Jazzy type feel! The food was delicious, and the dessert amazing!! The only reason why I gave a rating of 4 plus stars was because the waiter made a few mistakes with our order. However, when I advised the owner of the problem he was very accommodating. Definitely a place to visit while in the Cleveland area!!

    This is a small but inviting space, especially the downstairs dining area. The food was unique and tasty, and drinks were well made. Our server did very little to make us feel welcome and ignored us most of the time. Didn’t even get a chance to order dessert. Might risk a second visit if they rotate the menu since options were very limited.

    I was able to book a last minute gathering for a party of 6 without any issues. The staff was lovely, overall great energy.! NOW Lets talk about the Bartenders, now they stole the show. Every drink we asked for was prepared perfectly made the Original Mojito, Berry Mojito, Key Lime Martini, Bourbon, they even provided us with a complimentary shots. Now... The food>>> Taste was great, however the portions where very small. I ordered there churrasco " In my country CHURRASCO is skirt steak" not here. Still very good but not what I was expecting. So with this dish I received 1/2 cup of white rice and 2 pieces of sweet plantains. for $30 you would think they would do slightly larger sides. Now mind you I work Downtown and door dash food often and its sad but Door Dash portions are slightly bigger. other than that our experience was great. Will we return??? Yes, definitely.
