The food was inconsistent. Some dishes (such as the Brussels sprouts, burrata, and churrasco steak) were excellent; the Caesar salad tasted like fast-food; the quinoa/herb-crusted salmon was ordered medium, overcooked dry, and remedied with a perfectly-cooked but tasteless replacement, though that dish’s sides were terrific; the fish tacos were small and otherwise mediocre; the shrimp tacos had one small shrimp per each of the the three small tacos, though management brought five additional tasty grilled shrimp; and the bread pudding (which is the only dessert our party tried) was pretty inferior. Our server was sweet and definitely tried, but she also was inexperienced and overloaded, so wasn’t able to fully attend to much after our initial order. The ambience was pleasant enough. All considered, no one in our group of 8 is inspired to return. And, that’s a shame because—from the menu and location—it seemed like it could be a great place.

My husband and I have been here twice in the past three weeks and love it. It’s our new favorite date night/dinner place! The drinks are amazing (I had the Coconut Grove mojito and he had his favorite top shelf rum and Coke). We love ordering a bunch of appetizers as they are all delicious and none have left us disappointed. I highly recommend the Roasted Dates as they are huge, wrapped in bacon and a sweet and savory delight. Our servers have been great, attentive and friendly. The ambience and vibe were perfect as we enjoyed the weather dining outdoors. Can’t wait to come back.

Great venue if you want to sit outside, have a good meal and chill. Definitely would take a romantic date there. They had a guitarist playing on Saturday night which added to the ambiance. Food very tasty. Very good waitress.

LuLu is our go to restaurant in the Grove. We decided to go to the Haunted Ballet at The Barnacle. So we stopped at LuLu. We always have the brussels sprouts and wrapped / stuffed dates. The LuLu burger is excellent. And the fish tacos are my husband's regular meal. It's an easy place to take visitors, too. We highly recommend it. I only gave four stars because the restrooms are upstairs and hard to reach for some folks. And the air conditioner drips condensation on some diners and tables.
The AC condensation problems are likely only during the peak heat times but it was still disruptive. Overall, it is a consistently good restaurant.

The only thing I didn’t like was that they left the door open to outside and it was a very humid night. Made the restaurant uncomfortable at times when ac was not cranking...otherwise great nigh!

Warmly welcomed by the hostess and offered a choice of indoor or outdoor table

Quickly seated and orders taken for starters with no pressure to choose main courses till starters had arrived

Main courses came promptly

Server was extremely cheerful and pleasant and couldn’t do enough to help the group with any extras

Thanks for a lovely evening

Five apps: Octopus -chewy, hummus and croquettes bland, tuna tacos awesome, artichoke dip so-so. 1 out of 5, not a good hit ratio.
Salmon pasta - awful! Tacos just ok, same for steak.

We ate here while on vacation, it was recommended by a friend. Food was pretty good, although I was a little disappointed in the amount of chicken in my chicken Alfredo dish. We ate outside, it was a fun experience.

Nice place in great area. Parking can be a problem. Indoor and outdoor seating. But of all the good things the food is the best - SUPERB! Everything was perfect for apps and main course. Desserts are limited and while tasty, they weren't on a par with the rest of our dinner. Will definitely go back again

We brought 11 people to celebrate a new college grad and are pleased that we picked Lulu. Great food, lively atmosphere, prompt attention by the staff. When dessert arrived, our waitress (Stephanie) served it with sparklers for the grad and a relative celebrating her birthday. That attention to detail - and the outstanding variety of small plates - will bring us back again, and again.

Great spot for outdoor dining. Good for people-watching and the food is always good, varied, and interesting. The chef is French and he likes to try new takes on classics, most of which work well. Roberto was our waiter and he was, as usual, friendly and attentive. It was my wife's birthday and this was a great spot to celebrate.

Our first visit to the Grove on moving to Miami and Lulu set a high bar. The tapas menu was great, the octopus, tuna tacos and brussel sprouts all were very tasty. To cocktail menu is great for those with a sweeter palate.

The menu was sufficiently diverse for everyone to find several dishes to their individual preferences. The food presentation and flavors were superb. Portions while not huge were more than ample leaving all satisfied but not feeling stuffed. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Prices are moderate offering competitive and good value. In short, I am adding Lulu to my regular restaurant rotation and can't wait to go back!
