I have to say that at first I was hesitant to go because they are always busy, which is a great thing. Most restaurants that are busy don't provide enough staff. ****Lulu's not only provides plenty of staff for your needs, but exceeds what customer service is. You just don't find this type of service in a very nice restaurant... More

A great place to eat right in the heart of Palm Springs. They have many food options and everyday offer a $19.99 3 course meal/$16.99 before 6pm. You have a choice of 4 or 5 starters, 8 to 10 entrees and 3 or 4 desserts. I had mushroom soup, porkchops and flourless chocolate cake and all were delicious. The service... More

Conveniently situated in downtown Palm Springs, Lulu is something of an institution. It always seems to be full of locals and tourists alike. Perhaps the ads on local TV play a part here. Sometimes it is necessary to queue to have a table, but people-watching can be an amusing pastime! Although some of the food combinations may seem a bit... More

After a 2+ hour drive from San Diego my daughter chose Lulu for lunch and we were not disappointed. At the height of the lunch hour they managed to get us seated quickly. Service was as attentive and quick as it could be with completely full restaurant and floor managers checked on us twice to make sure everything was copasetic... More

After a four hour drive, reached Palm Springs at lunchtime. It was a beautiful day so we opted to eat outdoors at LuLu's. After enjoying a special martini of the day, we had a wonderful salad and shared the lobster rolls. The atmosphere was great, food delicious and service good.

Lulu's is a very large, open lively space opening out onto Palm Canyon Drive. We were there on a Thursday night Villagefest. Big crowds. Lulu's does a good job of managing the numbers, but reservations are recommended. The food and service were good. I highly recommend the mushroom soup. Everything was good. Not a place for intimate, serious dinner conversations.

I guess the theme of this review is less is more. Lulu takes the opposite approach. Huge menu, huge seating capacity, over the top waitstaff. Let's focus on the menu and food. It's massive, so much to choose from and frankly the multi-course deals are a really great way to order and an impressive value. Beyond the set menus, there... More

We tried Lulu's based on Trip Advisor reviews. The service was prompt and very good. The food was hot and fresh. And it's a fun place to sit on a warm day and people watch.
