I've been coming here for drinks and food since the Kellers opened this place over seven years ago. Back then, it was the belle of the ball. Now, there are newer places in town but, I still come here for a great experience with the food, drinks, decor, and wait staff at a good price point. It always seems to be happy hour here! More...

We were a party of twelve, four adults and eight children. They really took good care of us, especially Ramon, he was an excellent server. The food was incredible, yummy and the portion is big. Highly recommended More...

This is undoubtedly one of the busier restaurants in Palm Springs, but they have a huge capacity and my husband and I walk in all the time without a reservation. (Reservations required for large parties though!)We have always had incredible service, incredible food, with incredible prices. Our best experience yet was tonight when we had Ramon as a server. He managed to get to know us and our story (we just moved here) while simultaneously managing a whole section of tables. Ramon, if you're reading this, Brian and I can't wait to sit in your section again at Lulu! More...

Had an awesome time at Lulu's. Went to celebrate my Nephew's birthday and he loved it! The staff was very attentive and kept our drinks flowing. Excellent customer service, the atmosphere is awesome, and the food is good. Definitely a great experience!!! Will go again! More...

Very bright and full of colors. Loved the atmosphere. Service was amazing. Someone was always walking around and refilling your drinks or picking up dirty plates or asking if you needed anything. Didn’t get a chance to go here for dinner, but we had the opportunity to check it out for breakfast. It was delicious. I didn’t get anything too fancy because I had to catch a flight but it was really good! More...

This is a must! We have been visiting Palm Springs quite often within the last few years. For whatever reason we never stopped into Lulu until just last week. It was so wonderful that we went back the very next day. The environment and vibe is reason enough to visit. It’s colorful, fun and the decor just makes you feel relaxed and laid back. The indoor/outdoor seating is always an attractive bonus especially to these Midwesterners! We were lucky enough to have Tryston as our server on our first visit. He was so wonderful- friendly and knowledgeable, he made the experience so much fun. The menu has a little bit of everything which is great for when you are traveling with a group. There wasn’t one bad menu item; our server told us about the famous meatloaf that they are known for so that was a must and it did not disappoint! Great place to dine at & cannot wait to go back when we visit next! More...

The service was excellent! The food was pretty good as well. It wasn't anything over the top but definitely above average.The ambiance is really interesting and unique.I would recommend the Ahi Tuna Burger. It was a nice combination of flavors and the tuna was well prepared. More...

Martin was an excellent server. The seafood chowder, the pear salad, and the Chilean Sea Bass were delicious. It was hopping tonight, but I was able to be seated just a few moments after walking in the restaurant. If you have a party of two or more, make a reservation. I will definitely come back. More...

Wild mushroom soup was flavorful but I did not like the consistency. The best salad was good. The Salmon was tasty but overcooked. The rice pilaf and asparagus were cooked nicely. The Napoleon for dessert was delicious! The service was very good. More...

Consistently good. Was there for a catered brunch. Food was good. Deep fried green beans and back were perfect. Cant forget the yummy fresh cotton candy.

Great atmosphere and service. Makes you feel like old town Palm Springs. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The food was good but not outstanding. It was like any other breakfast place you would visit. The best part was the atmosphere and ambiance. Might be a fun place at night with their full bar. We went for brunch. More...

The service:
PHENOMENAL! It’s unreal- Our waiter was amazing and charismatic, as well as the waiters for the tables around us. We even had asked a busboy who was cleaning one of the tables to take a picture of our group, and he jokingly jumped into the photo and made everyone laugh. We were checked up on at multiple points in our meal, and the servers were more than happy to provide recommendations. Shout out to Lurdis (I have no idea if that’s how you spell her name). She was the manager and is awesome!

The ambiance:
Very hip and casual, open, and bright. Everyone around here seems to be having a good time. It’s also not too loud to have a conversation comfortably. The outdoor seating is wonderful.

The food:
It’s pretty good. The menu is huge, and the food is good. Not anything out of this world, but it’s great. Not super great. But great. I only had seafood though, so I can’t speak much on this.

Overall, would recommend!

We have been to Lulu's on dozens of occasions. It is one of our go to restaurants for family, friends and clients. The menu is huge and varied, and has come a long way from the inception of the location, which had been a very challenging spot for its previous incarnation. The only unfortunate thing is that it is so successful it usually is at or near capacity which both slows down the service time and on some occasions makes it rather loud. It is usually best at those times to request eating on the front patio as it is quieter, and gives you the view of passersby which can fill some of the wait time. Rest assured, you will find it a pleasant experience to eat here at Lulu's. More...

Busy place for American style food and bar. They are famous with the 3 course options order with $19.99 and 4 course options order with $29.99 and $39.99. Of course you can order separate too. 4 course means soup,salad, entree and desert. Overall the food quality, prices and service are good but a little bit to salty on soup and sauce of entree. They have 20 bar stools and you can just order some bar food and enjoying with alcohol drinks. More...

By far and away one of the best experiences we've had at a restaurant. We went to do a tasting for our upcoming wedding next year and both Emily (Catering Manager) and Eric (our server) were fantastic. Eric was super attentive, pleasant to speak to, and all smiles. Emily kept the food coming and was incredibly easy to work with and was super flexible when we had specific menu requests. The whole time we were thinking how awesome of a place Lulu's is and definitely a place we'd go back to again and again. More...

Great value 3 course meal at $19.95 is exceptional. Packed daily and most popular place to eat on palm canyon. Food is good drinks are a bit pricey though. The cotton candy glass is a great birthday surprise and a nice touch! More...

Service staff were very kind and attentive. Food was very good and the portions we're extremely large. The restaurant is very large and seemed to hold a lot of people. The outdoor seating is very nice. The restaurant was not overly loud despite being such a large place.
The food was pretty good. I wasn't a huge fan of the mussels I got, but the mushroom soup was delicious.

The vibe in the restaurant is really cool. Very colourful and bright. Food is prepared very well and tasted delicious! Service was okay as it took a while for our main course to come out. Definitely would go back!

A nice restaurant serving a wide variety of different foods from pizza to soups, salads and burgers to large entrees. The service is very good, the portions a re a nice size and the location is ideal for anytime meals. The outside patio is great for people watching and enjoying the great outdoors. It does get crowded so be prepared to wait or get there early for lunch and especially for dinner. More...

Great Bistro with a varied menu. You'll find something for everyone. Waiter was very nice and fun, could tell we were out for a night of excitement and gave us a great time.

Their take-away bags are called lulu-vuitton bags...

Definitely recommend checking Lulu out.

Great exciting place. Loud large and the biggest menu I've ever opened at any dinner. It's a little fancy I suppose. If you enjoyed this review please press the like button so I will keep more reviews coming.

The multi-course menu options offer something for everyone. From the mushroom soup appetizer to the double chocolate flourless cake everything was delicious. If there was a weakness it would be their entree salad. The heaters in their outdoor seating kept everyone cozy and the service was top notch. One of the best dining experiences in some time.

This is the quintessential California Bistro. Large menu with many choices for every price point. They will accommodate large parties if you just call ahead. Sit in the bar area for a smaller discounted menu that includes some of the favorite sandwiches and appetizers where its Happy Hour all day long. You might choose the patio seating for a front seat on Palm Canyon Drive which is usually filled with tourists walking about and shopping at the many shops. Or, you might choose an intimate booth in the back which is slightly raised above the main dining areas. Great service and great food at a moderate price makes this place a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Highly recommended! More...

Love this place! We got here before it got busy. Great atmosphere and fabulous food and service. The Norwegian Benedict, with caviar and lox, was excellent, and love their potatoes. Definitely recommend!

Seafood chowder was excellent, had to purchase a baguette on the side which was delicious and enough for 2. My wife had the pear salad which she loved. Server Grace was very attentive and pleasant. All in all very good experience. Alcohol seemed a little pricey or else I would give them 5 stars. More...

Ate breakfast at this cute spot on their patio. I had the corned beef hash and eggs, which were great, but the big surprise was the fresh naked wheat bread they use for their toast. So delicious we got a side order. I will be back when we visit the area early next year. More...

Bright, bustling downtown eatery with menu to woo every heart. Three- and four-course options are affordable and hearty. This is an extreme comfort food emporium that is neither offensive nor particularly special. Service is stellar to match decor. More...

Really enjoyed the meal here. The ambience was just great and the food was tasty, too. The outdoor seating areas were lovely and as it was a Thursday night the Street Stalls of the Open Air Market set up and the festivities took place right in front of us. Just a great way to get 'warmed up'. More...

Super good food with great staff and fun atmosphere. I ate here on a busy Sunday and still received very personalized service with special accommodations for my vegetarian companion. I definitely recommend eating here! Do not overlook that chicken filet sandwich. Simplicity done well can be simply amazing. More...

Update 8/17/2017: Still always quality. Our server Lance did an excellent job making us welcome. Quick food delivery, cheerful and funny. Made a special stop with a moving van because we had to eat at our Lulus since we were in the area.

Always awesome. Love the Sunday brunches. The food choices are great. Elegant, relaxing and cool restaurant. Good places for individuals and groups. It's on our 'must do list' when we are in Palm Springs.

Honestly I avoided this place the past few years because it always looked too busy and thought it would take forever to get seated. But went with friends during their late-night menu and again for dinner. Got seated really quickly and their food is pretty good. It's slightly pricey but that's to be expected on the strip in such a high profile location. But I wasn't disappointed, fun, bright and eclectic interior. More...
