i have known about Lula lounge for a long time. never had the chance to visit . until i saw that Reina was booked to play there, anytime she is in Toronto or anywhere in the GTA i will go see her, amazing talent.

the show was great as usual and the sound guy did a awesome job sound was perfect for Reina's show.

i had the jerk chicken and having a being part Jamaican it was very tasty , hats off to the chef .

Absolutely amazing relaxing vibe. Music at time is get away to the past, where rhythm and blues were all you needed to enjoy great company on a night out.

The food was actually way better than I expected because there was really only one vegan option, but it happened to be very tasty. The three dip appetizer (guacamole particularly) left something to be desired. It is a latino place so I would expect good guac!!! It tasted like a sad store bought version. My pina colada tasted like it had zero alcohol in it. We had a great table right near the stage so that was awesome, but the tables are really close together which made for a cramped experience. Our waiter was quiet, but on the ball in terms of taking our orders and getting our food out. He neglected to include one beer on our bill which I pointed out to him -- usually in these cases the restaurant will then thank you and leave it on the house, but he reprinted the bill to include the drink. Not a big deal as that is what we ordered, but it's a nice gesture to at least thank the customer for pointing it out. Overall, good experience!

My experience at Lula Lounge has always been good. I just would like to be able to sit down sooner, specially this Sunday. I felt that the staff were not ready on time. We had a little confusion about the time.

Nice place and very good ambiance. reception at door was great, friendly and efficient seating. Thank you for the complimentary glass of champagne for our anniversary. It was a nice and remembering touch that we did not get in other places in Toronto. Food was good however, soup was a bit spicy. all else was great. More room for dancing would have been great but, outstanding place to visit again.

Perfect evening! We celebrated our anniversary at Lula Lounge. The atmosphere was amazing and the vibe is very good. I would specifically like to point out how amazing the staff is - we were getting late, and they made all the adjustments to make our experience pleasant. The waiters were super nice and friendly. We felt very welcome! The food was PERFECT!
The lesson is wonderful,the band is very talented and the after-party is just perfect - all the best songs were played and everybody was having a good time.
Thank you!

This is our second time attending a birthday celebration and our waiter was superb and helpful. Ambience is fantatstic for people who love high energy and keep in mind that the music can be a bit loud so conversations are not the easiest to have but well worth it. Would definitely recommend this place to others

We had an excellent evening at Lula Lounge. Our server was very attentive and the food was great. The stage was amazing and the place was packed. I've been to Lula Lounge for performances before but I would recommend starting with the meal - great tropical-themed fare and you have a committed seat for the show.

I would go to an event there but I wasn’t fond of the menu and it didn’t really cater to those who must follow a particular diet

I asked for a table for 6 people, and 8 were squeezed into a round table which I was told on the phone was "communal." The 8 people consisted of me and my friends and one stranger couple (who also seemed very uncomfortable) squeezed into a table that was clearly meant for 6 people. The only reason I booked at table for 6 was because the online reservation system said a table for 8 people was not available, so I don't appreciate having to split our group while having to dine with strangers who were obviously as thrown off by the situation as we were.

Also, the nachos that we ordered were stale, and the server wouldn't accept my drink ticket to cover my beer even though he took the ticket from my friend who ordered a wine.

You guys can do better. But I'm not coming back.

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback about your experience at Lula. We’re sorry to hear that you didn’t feel comfortable with the seating! For that particular book launch, the publisher had requested that we offer shared tables for the larger booths because they wanted as many fans as possible to be able to attend the "sold out” book launch. At the point that you booked, all the tables for six had been reserved so we offered to accommodate you at a larger, shared table.

I went here for my anniversary on Saturday and I had the best time ever, the food was amazing, the servers were so attentive and sweet , and place was stunning and the music was probably the best part. I felt like I was waking up Sunday morning to my mom cleaning the house to Spanish music, I felt like I was home. I’m coming back soon and bringing my huge family along.

The best part about Lula is the atmosphere. It's full tilt good vibes. Friday nights are well structured to engage the guests. Food is good, but the live band is on a whole other level. Sound and dance washes all worries away. It would be hard to remember a sour day by the time those trumpets get going.

Everybody is dancing....I don't dance, but it's contagious. First time since high school. Nobody could care less. Everybody was dancing!!

We come to Lula Lounge many times, many of our musician friends perform there. Staff, everyone is exceptionally efficient, friendly, courteous, and accommodating. The Venue itself is also well laid out, great sound and food. Thanks for all they do for the city of Toronto.

I will not come back. Ever. Music was fantastic, server was sweet, but my friend and I felt swarmed by men, and I mean that in a very unpleasant way. Grabbed, groped and invaded, we had to sneak out. Not the type of place for ladies who have boundaries. Too bad, I just wanted to dance and enjoy the live music.
