“Fantabulous!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

Went to NYC with a friend in August 2013 and we stumbled on this place for a late lunch. We had the rollatini, lobster pasta and roasted beet salad with a bottle of Monastiell red wine (organic!). Our server was more than accommodating and very friendly. The food was very tasty with great presentation. We even had a little patio view on 5th Ave. Will definitely go back again!

“Lulu-licious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

If you ever hear people say that New Yorkers are not friendly, they probably have not spent much time in NYC. The servers are LuLu's are among the friendliest people you will find anywhere, and they cheerfully contributed to a wonderful evening. The salmon was perfectly done on a nice bed of spinach, and the wine was very good while not breaking the bank. A shot of grappa was also a nice finish to the meal.

TIP: They have outdoor seating, but you may not want it. It is outside right on 5th Avenue and is very noisy.

“Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

My husband and I had a very relaxing dinner on a rainy evening in May. We chose it because our hotel was nearby and we didn't wish to walk far in the rain. Though we had been there the day before for Happy Hour, we hadn't eaten. We were impressed with the service and the food. At first, I thought it would be a bit noisy from the bar area, but the dividers screened out most of the chatter. If we are in the area again, I would not hesitate to eat here!

Sckoot, I remember you and your husband well. I was pleasantly surprised when you returned for dinner. I had hoped you would return because you seemed to be folks who would appreciate the food and service that we provide here. Thank you for your kind words and make sure you reintroduce yourselves upon your return.

“THE place to be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

having had drinks at lulu on a couple of occasions, i had promised myself that i would drag some friends and have a proper meal first chance i could. that turned out to be this past saturday, and we had simply a great supper and a great time. we were treated like old friends, even though we hadn't been there in a while. our wines [a tuscan red, then a chianti] were excellent. the roasted shrimp appetizer was as good as any i've ever had anywhere; one of our party wanted to forego her main course and just have more shrimp ! we then shared some sausages, a plate of mussels and a fine beet salad. fabulous --
last point: the owner [mike] came by and made sure everything was as it should be. it turns out the chef [and the real boss] is his wife karen. kudos to both for running a great operation.
we are headed back.
