Food was good. It was extremely loud. The wait staff was short handed. There was a large party downstairs and not enough people taking care of tables up stairs. Had to wait a long time for our waters to be refilled. Waitress was spread too thin. Menu was not the full menu even though the antiques show has been finished for some time.

Evidently the new management for Armando’s empire have their own plan going forward. Losing their best people by filtering out the starting group from 3 years ago seems to be where they are going. We strongly disagree with this chopping as these people were the founding members and who built these businesses through hard work and establishing solid customer relationships.
We hate to see this happening by some out of state “director” who has no experience in our Texas country towns. I’d say good luck but I would rather see them fall flat on their faces for what they are doing to our team of extremely hard working people.

Unfortunately, the evening we visited they were short staffed so the service was slow to respond in every interaction. The food was okay although they were out of a lot of things by 830pm. Three persons out of our party of five were not able to get their first choice. Overall, we were disappointed but the following day we ate at another restaurant they own - Armando’s - & that experience was much better! Not sure we would give Lulu’s another try when we return to around Top.

Recommended by a friend. Very excited to go. Waited 39 minutes at bar for a drink. Waited almost an hour with a reservation for our table. Waited 15 minutes to be approached by waiter at our table. Food was mediocre. Told all this to manager upon leaving and he said it was so busy. They needed more staff. The building and space were nice.

Only issue was the table were a little to close for comfort during coronavirus epidemic. But the wait staff were wearing their mask which was great. Plan to bring my parents during Thanksgiving week. I have been telling about how wonderful the lamb taste.

We realize we were having dinner at a busy time. NO Bread, NO dessert and they never brought me my dinner that l asked to have boxed up. Waiter was much to busy with a table of 8 young ladies taking selfies with them. Would l go back....yes at a different time.

The maitre de was not friendly for starters. Then, we ordered drinks and were told we would get bread. Eventually, we did, but only AFTER the table that was seated well after us, got theirs. Our server never asked if we wanted more bread but brought more to the other table.

Once our food was served, our server never came back to ask if we needed anything. Our food was marginal. Two of us had chicken fettuccine which tasted like canned chicken, and portions were small. The one highlight was the pizza, but I was overcharged for it. Then we had to flag down our server to get our ticket.

We realize they were very busy, but we were one of the earlier tables seated, and felt like the level of service declined as the restaurant filled up. They KNOW it’s a busy time, therefore no excuses for poor service.

Hope others had a better experience, but we will not go back.

I brought one of my close friends there for dinner. It’s one of my favorite places. Even though it was super crowded with antique show shoppers the service was still wonderful and the food was excellent!

Love the owners especially Cinda!

Polenta squares with meatballs were very good. The pizza was not very good....tiny little greasy pepperoni scattered over a too thick & crunchy crust. The margarita pizza was clearly a very cheesy pizza with red sauce...no tomatoes at all. Beautiful space & I'm sure there are many other things on the menu that are better. The carbonara pasta was absolutely the best ever!
