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.

Choices including comfort food which was just what we needed. Relaxing and enjoyable and a good value!

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!

We had a family gathering after a funeral at Lulu’s. I’m embarrassed that I didn’t take pictures of our food because it was truly superb! Mike was our server and amplified our experience with attentive service without being overbearing.

We ordered almost every appetizer on the menu and a double order of lamb ribs and stuffed dates! Outstanding!!!
A few ordered Churrasco which we continued to share and the pistachio pasta. The vegetable side dishes were beautifully prepared and the bok Choy was loved by all.

Being total gluttons, we ordered Tres Leches and Chicago Mousse but only had a spoonful to share.

Highly recommend these whimsical dishes in a cozy place.

Thank you for a delightful evening after a much needed evening of diversion.

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.
