The food was really disappointing. I have been eating at Lulu’s years and it was the first time I was disappointed. The beer was warm, the cheeseburger not well cooked, the salad dressing bitter and the tres leches like skim milk. Service was great, but it will be a awhile before I try it again.

My wife and I started out with side salads which were plentiful but were served in a bowl that was so small , it made eating very difficult. My wife had the salmon with penne which was good tasting but serving if salmon was very paltry. My jambalaya was as advertised with three gigantic and superbly tasty shrimp , chorizo and chicken the farfalle was al dente, the spices were just right.

Screw up by server who didn’t log us in caused open table to think we missed reservation. Manager apologized and fixed the problem vis this request from you

We chose LuLu based on the website and recommendations saying it is vegan friendly. The vegan friendly options were VERY limited and willingness to modify was not there. Standard menu options we ordered were fine, nothing exceptional, nothing bad. Service was distant and even though we were sitting outside within view of the host stand and the place the wait staff was constantly walking by, waters were always empty and we were never offered an opportunity to order another drink. I will not seek this place out again, but would be willing to go if it was the choice of others.

Friendly professional service. From initial greeting , table to good by come back soon service was great. Food was fabulous. Presentation , temperature and taste excellent. It was my birthday. They treated me to a glass of champagne AND a dessert. This was done respectfully, quietly and elegantly. No crazy loud embarrassing fanfare. Looking for classy service , excellent food , outdoor/indoor dining at reasonable prices. LULU’s is the place for you! And for a great breakfast across the street at “Green Street” rated one of the top 10 breakfasts. We went there today and will be returning to both places . Kudos to both staffs and managers.

Loved LuLu: great food, great atmosphere (outside), great service. Drinks were slow to come the night we were there, but I imagine it was one of the busiest of the year, during the art fair , boat show, and other local events. And the server comped our drinks. We enjoyed the food here more than at GreenStreet, across the street. Also not as loud.

Service was ok. Food however was not what was expected.
We had to ask to be sat outside as the ambience indoors had a strong smell of not only food but other unpleasant scents. Very weird dish having a mix of un matching flavors. My date’s dish, Filet mignon did not taste like filet mignon, but rather a past due roast beef. My dish had an awful combination of caramelized seared scallops, with corn cream and bacon jam. Very disappointing. Wine was good and so was the expresso coffee. Parking was great. Valet only a few feet away and quick delivery, all electronic.

Lovely place in the Grove for a date night, and one with great staying power. My lady friend and I shared their burrata special sweetened by the oranges & strawberries, and she enjoyed her tuna tartare. The meatball app I ordered was tasty, though the sauce could have been a little richer. Bacon wrapped dates were perfect with the right amount of crisp and the dulce de leche we shared was really creamy and flavorful.

Lulu was great! Our server was outstanding, very knowledgable and friendly. The "Coconut Grove" cocktail was delicious - a coconut mojito with grilled pineapple. The goat cheese croquettes with guava BBQ sauce were perfectly crispy. I had the filet au poivre with cognac cream sauce and grilled asparagus. The filet was cooked perfectly and the sauce was DELICIOUS. My friend had the salmon penne with vodka sauce, and she raved about it.

If I could give the service higher than Outstanding I would! We were in from out of town and celebrating a business partner's birthday. The waiter was amazing with his recognition of her special day, with the food selections he recommended and with how he paced the flow of the meal. And we sat outside on a beautiful night and enjoyed the energy of the passing crowd. What a lovely spot that we will visit again when back in town!

Great meal, great ambience, but service was painfully slow. Our waiter was missing in action for most of our dinner service. It took an hour to get our first course out and another 45 minutes for the course after that. Good thing it was a beautiful night and the food was delicious...almost made the terrible service seem not so bad.

Was visiting Miami on a business trip for NYE weekend and wanted to be sure to dine at one of my favorite spots in the city. LuLu never disappoints. Had a great dinner here ordering from the small plates menu so we could try several different things and each plate was on point. The food is simply delicious and the ambience/outside seating at the Coconut Grove establishment is always fantastic. Will definitely be back next time I'm in Miami!
