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.

We thought this place looked really neat from the street so we were looking forward to having dinner there and sitting outside. Food was decent /above average but the service was horrible. Our server Danny R was not good at all. He was rude and slow. He never thanked us for coming in, he was just not personable. We saw... More

A quick walk from the hotel, and we are at Lulu's on Palm Canyon Drive. But first we had to stop, actually drawn into, a souvenir store by their window display. It being close to Oscar time, the small statuettes with BEST BROTHER and BEST COUSIN engraved on them were suddenly a must have. A couple of cousins short, have... More
