We had not been in Lulu for a while and returned last night for dinner. The server was very attentive and took care of our needs. The food was very good but not outstanding. It had been outstanding the las time we had gone so we were a little dissapointed. More taste is really important to us. We like our palates to be challenged. We will come back and hopefully it becomes outstanding again.

Nice waiter, good atmosphere, appealing food selection, however, some menu items were not available (and learned about it after waiter put in the order) and service was quite slow although clearly not busy time.

I had a terrible experience with this particular restaurant. When I ordered an appetizer, I was never informed that my selection would be doused with extra spicy sauce.

When I informed the waitress, first and most of all, she did not like it a bit. Second of all, it took them less than a minute to bring the replacement appetizer to me, while the original took well over 17 minutes to be brought over to our table.

What does that mean? Well they washed in water and quickly put it in boiling oil and then gave it to me in less than two minutes? Would you eat that? The oil was dripping off of the appetizer.

Bad service and even worst food!! Would not return there again. I will post a very bad review in TripAdvisor

We went for our Anniversary, at the time they opened. This wasn’t our first time visiting, but may be our last for a while. We sat inside because it was hot, but inside was t much better! No AC running, just fans circulating hot air. Our server was fantastic; however, the owners of the restaurant (or who I believe to be) showed up, and from then on it was very uncomfortable.

Within 30 minutes, we witnessed the owner having an abrupt conversation with the manager, what appeared to be a male being fired or quitting, the owners sending food back to the kitchen, and more talking down to the manager.

It’s not that I’m beyond owners taking control of their business, but clearly every employee was on edge the minute they showed up. Not a comfortable environment for anyone. Hope this changes because we enjoyed going their previously.

Food was outstanding, but unfortunately the service was horrendous. It was like we weren’t there and the server didn’t want to be there. That ruined the dining experience. Too bad we won’t go there again. Many other places to dine with quality food and great service.

Positive: Table was well distanced; staff was responsive when we made contact. We were really looking forward to trying Lulu's given all the other positive reviews. The tacos were good.

Opportunities: Chicken Alfredo was drenched in oil and portion is very small for a dinner entry. Kobe beef slider was well-well done, overly cooked to our opinion. The truffle fries had no truffle taste and very oily.

There are lots of good restaurants in Miami. Lulu's probably had a bad night. We'd try somewhere else.

Lulu is one of Coconut Grove’s staple restaurants. The food was delicious as usual! The red sangria had a different flavor than what we are use to; we prefer a more wine based sweeter version. The tres leche comes in a mason jar with lots of sauce! This is my husband’s favorite dessert & he loved it! Overall Lulu is a great experience.
