Lulu Bar is an escape from the ordinary. Its welcoming vibe is reminiscent of hidden gems from your last vacation, only better because it’s right here in your own backyard. With a healthy, Pacific-inspired menu, Lulu’s wood-fired food is light and fresh — but heavy on flavour.
Chef Joseph Sokoloff’s fare is a tribute to the Pacific Ocean and many of the regions that touch it, with influences from Asia to Hawaii, California to British Columbia. Lulu’s fun, light, and refreshing drink menu is equally well-travelled. Its sake, beer, and creative cocktail offerings will make you feel like you’re far from home — and we like that.

    It's a good place in terms of the ambience and food. The service was also great. The food I'm not completely sold on though for the price. I had the lamb, and the flavour combinations weren't quite right for me. I wouldn't get it again, but I would come back to Lulu. The variety in the menu is fantastic so there's lots I'd like to check out. My only real issue is I think a place like Bridgette bar offers more culinary finesse for the dollar. Lulu's main advantage is the variety in dishes and price points which is certainly worth investigating.

    Shared plates with a friend for lunch. All of the ingredients were fresh, delicious, and nicely presented. We ordered calamari, potatoes, beet salad and chicken skewers. We left feeling full and satisfied. Our server was pleasant, personable, and attentive. We had a great experience.

    I have been there many times, and every time I had their skewers it’s never been consistent with the taste. It’s either no sauce, dry etc etc.

    One of our favorite restaurants! We love your menu and have brought many guests so far. One suggestion, for the guests with low tolerance to spicy food, it would be nice to have maybe a little warning on the menu, or by the waiter.

    Our first visit after hearing so many good things about it, including Daisy Edgar Jones liking it! The dishes we chose all packed a flavour punch, honourable mention goes to the beef tongue - never thought I’d try this but decided to today, it was excellent and just looked like thin strips of meat, not what I had imagined. Prices are reasonable for the quality of food, didn’t go away hungry.

    Really great service which is SO hard to find these days and the food and cocktails were excellent. The fried chicken was so good and the poke is great too. We were in the corner on the "patio" in November and while they had the heaters on and gave us blankets it was pretty cold. Not really their fault; next time I'll make sure to ask for a table in the main restaurant part.

    Our experience at Lulu Bar was amazing! - Our server was exceptional at supporting the various dietary needs of our table. The menu had many options that were already or could be dairy and gluten free and she brought a post-it note listing the items that we shouldn’t order - While we were there, we and many others in the restaurant witnessed a hit and run outside on 17th. Ave. Lulu Bar staff gathered details about the car, license plate info etc, and made sure that the owner of the car that got hit knew what had happened. It was really lovely to see that the Lulu Bar staff cared about others and did the right thing, even though they were super busy and it didn’t affect any of the patrons in the restaurant. - The food and drinks were fantastic. Everything was delicious. Our server was attentive and kind. We’ll visit again soon!

    I celebrated my birthday at Lulu Bar at lunchtime. The service was very good and the servers were attentive. The squid was very tender and tasty with a delicious sauce. The lobster dumplings were wrapped in a tapioca wrap that was very difficult to chew and I felt like I was going to choke on it. Therefore I took off off the wrap and the filling was very delicious. The Mochiko chicken was also very tasty but it was overcooked and quite chewy. The warm beet dish was wonderful. I think I could overlook some of the issues with the food, if it wasn’t so expensive. With the prices that were charged for the food items, I would expect them to be better than they were. However, overall a good experience though I’m not sure that I will be keen to return very soon.

    Great food, small portions but good quality. Good if you want to get a lot of dishes and share! Also fun and unique cocktails, would have tried more but the service was cold and rushed, the atmosphere very lacklustre (we were seated in the heated enclosed patio which was awful) a few of our dishes arrived cold, and the server and hostess were not attentive, short and unwelcoming. We felt rushed to finish and leave. Will not be returning.

    Food was good but it was SUPER loud. The food was a bit overpriced, but that’s par for the course. Some dishes were better than others but the noise level really killed the experience.

    This was my first time at Lulu Bar as it was recommended by a couple of people. We chose mostly small plates to share. The food was mostly good, a couple things I did not love, but that was most likely due to my taste buds. Unique items on the menu, which seems to be a trend, yet some traditional items too. I found it pricey, but the service was excellent. We found it loud once the restaurant filled up, but I could still hear my dinner companion across the table from me. Overall a good experience.
