Food here is always awesome and the hostess was very helpful.
However, this visit we had a waiter with very European tendencies... and not in a good way. We had to flag him down for anything we wanted. We decided we wanted drinks after we ordered food, and we couldn’t get his attention until after we’d finished our appetizers and the drinks didn’t come until we’d finished the entree.
It was a busy night, but we were seated outside and barely even saw our waiter outside.
Overall, awesome spot, just don’t go on a busy night.

Terrible service. All the waitstaff was rude and impatient. Food was very bland. We had the scallops, fried tomatoes, fish tartare and octopus - I wouldn’t order any of those again. It was nice to sit on the street with a fan in the 90 degree humidity but everything else was terrible.

We are new to the area and had never been to Coconut Grove, so we enjoyed the outdoor seating and ambiance the most. The starters (goat cheese croquettes and wings) were delicious and entrees (steak salad and fish tacos) were just okay. We are likely to return for drinks and appetizers because the ambiance is really lovely.

The food was average, but the service was worse. The server ignored us for about 15 minutes before coming to our table, then brought sparkling water when we clearly didn’t want special water. When food was finally brought to our table it was cold. The server didn’t bring silverware until we asked for it. She was terrible. Lulu’s used to be a great place to eat and hangout—Sebastian the manager made it special; the new management sucks!

As local Coconut Grovites, we love Lulu's! It's our favorite place to take out of town guests to get a feel of the Grove. The menu of mostly small plates makes it easy for everyone to taste a variety of selections so that many different food likes and appetites can be satisfied. We like to eat outside so that guests can feel the Grove energy. We've been going to Lulu's for years and have never been disappointed.

Mother’s Day. Place was empty except for a table of very very rude people who faced times their family during their whole meal!! We got sat right next to them and we couldn’t hear ourselves talk. We said something to staff more than once who did nothing. We eventually asked them ourselves to stop and they ignored us. We had to get up ourselves and move to a new table.
I have never had this happen before in any restaurant I’ve ever eaten in.
At the end of our meal the waitress apologized again and did make it up to us by given us a gift certificate of substantial value to use at another time. But not sure we will be back. They could have taken a stronger stand with the diners who were being so rude.

It’s a casual place with outdoor eating. Has a great view for people watching. We had a great server Mike who was a fantastic waiter. We brought our own bottles of wine and he uncorked them. His suggestions for apps and entree were on point. If you eat here try the Brussels sprouts and pistachio pasta. Dessert was Nutella bread pudding and some great espresso. Will definitely go back and hope I get that great waiter again.

Last Night Dinner...I had made reservations based on the website before my trip. (I live in Northern CA.) Love small plates and the menu looked intriguing. Reservations were for my last night in South Florida. I was hosting the friend who had be showing me around. What can I say - it was amazing. The one plate that stands out were the roasted dates stuffed with chorizo and wrapped in bacon. I am going to steal this idea! Of course I also loved the octopus. Small plates more than ample for two people to share. Only problem was there were 3 tuna tacos...alas I had two.
