My daughter and I ate at Lulu while visiting University of Miami's Open House. We are both foodies and really wanted a good meal after a long day of travel and we were thrilled with our meal! Everything was perfect! One of the 2 or 3 best restaurants we've ever visited. It was so good that we returned the next day before leaving town!!

They have amazing brussel sprouts and the bacon wrapped dates are to die for. The turkey burger is good and so is the salmon, highly recommend if you are in the area to watch a movie, pretty quick service, nice ambience, good for people watching, cozy and cute.

Delicious food and wonderful atmosphere. Small quaint restaurant with a romantic ambiance. The food was delicious! My husband had fish tacos and I had churrasco steak. Both were delectable and one of our favorite meals to date. Highly recommend!!

We arrived on time and the table was not ready.
I reserved for my wife's birthday party and they did not know of the occassion.
Service was "terrible", I had to stand up on various occassions to the bar and get beverages for my guesta since our glasses were empty, warm and my guests were not pleased.
After all the headaches and bothers, there was no type of reaction on behalf of LuLu to please any of us. I paid $575.00 and no type of discount was offered.
I will never recommend LuLu to anyone.

I was in town for a layover and after seeing the menu I knew I had to try this place. The setting is funky and fun, there is outdoor, indoor, and bar seating. They have some signature cocktails, beers on tap, and a wine list. I would highly recommend the roasted dates, they were fantastic! I was super impressed that they had regulars, it's nice to get the feeling of the neighborhood like that.

Went out for an easy dinner on a Saturday night. Ordered several small plates and a bottle of wine. Took a bit of time to get the wine and the first app, but then ran smoothly. Sat outside enjoyed the people watching. Bill came to just about $100. For the meal, thoroughly worth it.

While in Miami visiting my daughter and her husband we decided to try LuLu. Had a reservation and we seated right away. The cocktails were okay. We enjoyed both the smoked salmon plate and the goat croquettes. However, during the meal at our outdoor table we were visited by termites. Yes, I did say termites. They were flying and crawling about our table. They were swarming. We had to brush ourselves(concerns they would be brought back home with us) and kill them on the table. We quickly decided this wasn't ideal and asked for our check. We contacted the manager and his response was I am sorry. With no offer of compensation for the dinner that was surprising interrupted by termites.

Nice friendly setting on a busy, fun filled Coconut Grove main drag.
Like other competitors, a limited but solid menu (above average starters) and all 4 entrees were good and reasonably priced.
Very attentive and good-matured service.
