It’s clear the focus is turning tables over actual service. We waited 25 minutes for our appetizer and as soon as it showed, the next waitstaff put on the patio was holding our main courses. Since the plates were hot, he set them on the end of the table, clearly seeing we were just beginning to eat our appetizer. Then, when we moved to our mains, they were old. And no one picked up our appetizer plates to clear the table. When I said something to the Walter, he comped the appetizer, but that wasn’t what I was looking for. I wanted an apology and my intent was in hopes he manages his service better. But as we waited with dirty dinner dishes at our table for far too long, it is clear, management hires sub par waitstaff.

Louisiana BBQ ribs and a steak. Ribs ok. The steak was not the best quality. Waitress not paying attention, forgot our extra order of mashed potatoes. Overall 4 of 6 points in my book. Thanks

I also tasted the chicken picata which I found to be somewhat dry and slightly tough

I checked the gf menu online ahead of time to make sure I knew what options were available. Amazing short ribs, cocktails and service. They are a little slow but they have a sign posted so you know what to expect. The ambiance made up for the wait for sure. Make a reservation since this place is very popular for good reason.

I booked through OpenTable and then was offered to browse the menu which clearly said it offered a prefix menu. Our group all picked out what we wanted and when we arrived they were confused and offered us an outdoor seating… I said no I booked standard seating… I said what is that I said I don’t know it’s on your listing with open table. The waiter forgot us so many times… We waited 25 minutes for our bill. The manager came by when we asked earlier about the prefix menu the waiter said the manager would come by and talk to us… That’s all he did was talk to us he never brought up the prefix menu but later said he would have it removed by the IT guy immediately. The food has gone downhill the prices have gone up… There are so many other better places to dine than this it’s a tourist trap! Sorry for the harsh review but it’s the truth

The chicken lettuce wraps were just ok. Service was very friendly starting from the front door and hostess, wait staff and bartenders. Family friendly but also a good stop for a fun night out.

As it stands, the Santa Fe sandwich (one slice of pork, not like in any of the photos from a few years ago that show layers of pork), escargot, ceviche (bland and tasteless, which is unnerving when its ceviche), and cobb salad (absolutely mediocre) are all pretty regrettable. I am not sure if everyone ordering the ceviche is visiting for the first time or if I am missing something. Maybe burgers and pizza are the way to go? We waited for a while for condiments and silverware. We had to go find someone to get refills. Just a pretty disappointing set of meals.

I only wish the waiter service was more civilised and not so regimental and even "false" in the United States. Why do waiters take the plates away when one guest of a party is finished with dinner and others are not? This is a general problem in the USA and if this happened in Europe, we would feel as if we were rushed finishing dinner and would never return to a restaurant like that again. Staff training in US restaurants is obviously very limited, yet they expect to be tipped at a much higher percentage than in Europe.

In addition, we usually celebrate a birthday dinner there, like again this time. Although, we have a reservation and the place wasn’t crowded yet, we were shoved in the upstairs area where there were no air conditioning. My wife asked if we can have a outside table but they couldn’t accommodate even though there were plenty of tables available. To top it off, the service was terrible (usually the service is adequate), from messing up our orders to taking a long time to bring simple food order for the kids and keep forgetting to bring my soda water. I think we may not be back there anymore when we come back in May.

We had a great lunch served by Justin. We enjoyed the fried oysters and famous mushroom soup to start. Then moved on to entrees - lobster quesadilla and a burger. Desserts were wonderful - floating island and the affogado. Great spot to people watch and loved the decor. A must-hit spot in downtown.

And the food was not great. I love mussels in white wine broth but theirs is mediocre at best. The bread looked like it was toasted the day before. I won’t go back to Lulu’s. The servers were awesome though!
