We felt part of the Palm Springs scene sitting along the sidewalk enjoying our delicious drinks, flatbread pizza app and fixed price menu option which was a great deal! Everything was delicious and the service was excellent too! A fun nigh at Lulu's!

Just walked in with my husband and 5 year old. Despite available seats inside and outside on the lower floor, they tried to seat us upstairs alone where there were no other customers. Found that incredibly uninviting and rude.

The restaurant was hopping, nice outdoor seating- although the sun can be an issue as it sets. Menu was very reasonable, nice selections. Food was really good. great service. The server was on point - looks like a young Ricky Ricardo from the Lucy Show or Bruno Mars. Anyway, try it you will be pleased!

During a recent extended stay in Palm Springs, we discovered Lulu California Bistro and it has become our favorite place to dine (and people watch) in downtown Palm Springs. It has a very, extensive menu and food for everyone, including gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian. It is also very affordable and the service is great!

We had breakfast here and noticed the place crowded throughout the day. The wait service was attentive, and introduced the replacement during a shift change. On a limited diet, I tried a Benedict with a crimini mushroom replacing the muffin. Very tasty choice. My husband was pleased with his standard eggs and sausage. The setting is informal and can be...

NOT impressed with the food here, which was really disappointing as it had a very cool vibe and the menu seemed promising. We did sit outside which was fun as we were able to people watch. Out of 4 people, 3 did not enjoy their food and the 4th neither liked or disliked theirs. Not worth the $150 bill in... More

Such a mob scene. Waiters nice but took 3 to get pepper and 2 to get check and 2 to get cc back. They stop by but have 6 things to get for other tables so it is just not relaxing . Food is mediocre, people watching excellent, busy vibe is actually uplifting.

This restaurant lived up to all the great reviews and was a fantastic venue. If you get there a little early you don't have to wait for a table but it's always busy. We had dinner one night and then went back for breakfast another time. The food both times was great and the service excellent. Definitely a place to... More
