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.

    The food was absolutely outstanding!. We enjoyed every dish we ate. The service was excellent. Liked how each server would explain the dish they were putting in front of us. The noise level was high but I guess that just shows it is a busy restaurant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and would love to go back.

    As usual Lulu Bar never disappoints. The food is always above par. The service was flawless. I feel confident referring friends to Lulu because it's always exceptional. They never compromise on quality and they never allow their services to falter. LOVE LULU and will always be loyal to my favorite resto in Calgary. Must order the Bao Buns. While most menu items are intended to be shared, I NEVER SHARE MY BAO BUNS. NOT EVEN WITH MY CHILDREN. They are the best things ever created.

    The food as always was exceptional - specifically the poke, which is probably the best in Calgary. We tried the cauliflower last night at the servers suggestion, and it was delicious and will be on our list going forward, and the chicken sate may sound pedestrian, but is anything but - it wasn't some skinny piece of meat stuck to a stick, and the sauce was decadent. The drinks always leave me a tad disappointed, often they are half drink and half ice. We will be back though as we do leave the food.

    Great as usual. Only con was the lamb being overcooked (not medium rare) but dessert was taken off to compensate so neutral.

    I wasn't crazy for the lobster dumplings but then again, I am not a dumpling connoisseur - maybe that is how the texture of the wrap should be like. I loved the curry linguini and the loco moco. The former has bean sprouts on top (which i didn't mind but my friend didn't like) and the latter is a bed of fried rice that tastes delicious with a meat patty and a sunny-side-up egg on top. Very interesting combination for me but overall delicious. On the dessert side, note that the baked hula is an ice cream cake although the menu gives no hint in this direction. I loved the icecream (not too sweet) but found the merengue layer thick and too sweet for my taste. Loved the service. We were not pestered with the annoying "how does everything taste" but felt, at all times, well taken care of. I wish I could remember the guy's name but he was good.

    Too loud! Turn the music down. Everyone is shouting over the music. We went early, at 4, in hopes it would be better. They turned up the speakers at around 5. Wrecks the dining experience

    The whole atmosphere is great, however it's pretty quiet on the patio side. The restaurant needs to find a way to transfer to great energy of the main floor to the patio sides too.

    Server was well versed in the menu both with food and drinks, food was well presented and flavourful. Booked an early reservation weeks in advance for a special occasion so we could enjoy the restaurants ambiance and decor but was put out in the back corner of the pop-up patio even though the hostess mentioned it was a special reservation. Was disappointing and we seemed to be shuffled through quickly. Eat and get out. Would be an ok place for pricey food/drinks and a quick business lunch. I’m left feeling mixed about this place.

    Food was great, service wonderful. Forgot to warn us a beverage had fire in it and I almost burnt my hair, chairs where we were seated were hard and it was VERY loud. Fun, but not for longer than an hour.
