Despite dinning on perhaps their busiest night of the year, service was friendly and efficient. We ordered pepperoni pizza, short ribs and prime rib. Short ribs were excellent and serving was large. Prime rib was good but pizza was our least favorite, dry with no sauce. I would order other items from LuLu’s and save ordering the pizza from your favorite pizza restaurant.

Location, service, and cocktails were good as always. The quality of food continues to deteriorate. I’ll continue to drop by for a drink but never again for a meal.

Loved the food and energy as usual. Never tire of the course choices.. Great job with attention to details, love a hot plate with hot food on it.. Hate when the plate is hot and the food is Luke warm from sitting under a heat lamp.. Great job handling a table of four hungry guys.. Only suggestion, maybe water pitchers for larger groups.. Constantly asking for water can seem like an inconvenience when we know the wait staff is busy.. Thank you again for a wonderful time.. Oh, and great Job from the people up front who never lost contact with us, offered us water a couple times and even offered to seat us when the rest of our party was late tied up in traffic.. GREAT job..

I will NEVER eat at LuLu again, each time I think it’s just an anomaly - there were less than ten people today, the food was bad and the service was pathetic.

The food was great except for lasagna which had tons of tomato sauce for some reason.
The service was friendly but not evenly attentive. We had to ask for the bread 3 times.
Overall the great experience.

We love LuLu's. Anytime we are even remotely in the area we stop in to have a meal. We REALLY love their multi-course meal deals that start at $19.99. It's great for them, but too bad other restaurants in the area don't take a hint and offer something similar. This deal alone will keep us loyal to Lulu's.

Simply the most incredible meat loaf in Palm Springs. Gloria and Christopher were our servers and they made the meal outstanding.

Food is great but we had two waiters called John. This first one was great the second one kept us waiting 30 mins for our 3rd course, and then the two previous courses came twice - again. The mistake was because John number 2 went on a break and John number 1 was covering for John 2
