    This ended up being an odd choice for lunch, as the decor and ambiance are much more suited to a speakeasy (which is apparently what it is at night). We were seated in the basement level which was dark with lounge-style decor and lighting. That said, the service was cheerful and prompt and the food was excellent: I had the carne asada and my husband had the steak sandwich. Good value.

    The place is absolutely beautiful! While the food is very good, we were very surprised by how small the portions were…especially the size of guacamole given to a table of 5. It was laughable. We felt it was pretty pricey for what we received. Overall the vibe is really cool and the drinks looked amazing. Def a great place for happy hour.

    I didn't enjoy the experience. I reserved a space in the speakeasy section but was seated in the front area, which was pretty noisy due to a few larger parties. The guacamole was very good and we enjoyed our drink selections. They were out of empanadas, however, it was pretty late on a Saturday night. The fried plantains were inconsistent and the other appetizer with chorizo was forgettable. We decided not to order entrées based on the apps. Our service was friendly and efficient.

    It was my wife’s birthday, and our first time going to LULO Kitchen and it won’t be the last. Everything was amazing, we were seated right away, the appetizers were great, along with the drinks. We were seated downstairs in the “ speak easy “ section. The food and service was excellent. We are looking forward to returning to try a lunch there. Great service, we had a great time!

    LULO Kitchen is a real find, with a laid-back yet stylish vibe that's hard to beat. From the minute you walk in, you're greeted by a hip atmosphere and delicious food just waiting to be enjoyed. With its mix of modern design and tasty dishes, every visit is a treat for the senses. The friendly service just adds to the relaxed charm of LULO Kitchen. It's the kind of place you'll want to keep coming back to again and again.

    The food was absolutely amazing, which is really unfortunate because the service was quite possibly the worst I have ever experienced. We had a reservation but they did not have a table for us when we arrived (on time). We waited about 15 minutes for a table, not a huge deal. Once we were seated we waited another 15-20 minutes for someone to take our drink order, and this wasn’t even our server; it was the person who sat us down at the table. We ordered all of our food at the same time because she said the kitchen was really busy. It took another 15 minutes to get our drinks. Our appetizers came out a bit after, in which we had to ask for small plates as well as water, as we never received any in the entire hour we had been there. We got our main courses which were phenomenal. But we never saw our server ONCE. We had empty glasses and plates on our table, yet no one took anything away nor asked if we would like another drink. At the end, we asked three different people for to-go boxes and the check and it took 45 minutes to receive those. Absolutely abysmal service, we will never go there again.

    Dinner food and drinks on the pricey side, but definitely tasty. The carne asada was so flavorful I’ve been thinking of it since we left. The chorizo and potato appetizer was heavy on the lime could’ve used a little bit less. Definitely more lively at night as it got later and busier, it was pretty dark in the basement area and the music was on the loud side which was a little disorienting. But the scenery is superr pretty, the servers were kind and accommodating. My quinoa civiche was packed with fresh ingredients, and I’d recommend the empanadas as well.

    The ambiance of the restaurant is top tier the food is so fresh favorable and delicious. The empanadas is a must try with the garlic sauce it will change your life. The drinks are good and strong especially on a Friday night after a long work week and I’m a nurse so it was well needed. A place to try for day night or a night out with the girls this is my 3 time going and it’s always so nice the service and staff are very friendly.

    Absolutely loved it. Such a cool atmosphere. Food and drink were exceptional. Almost entire menu is gluten free. Staff and owner are so nice and gracious. The service was a bit slow and a tad confused due to a recent surge in popularity but have no doubt it will be smoothed out in the near future. Can’t wait to go back.

    The ambience was unique and enjoyable. Unfortunately the servers did not speak English well and therefore communication was impacted. The food was 3 star with a 5 star price tag. Automatic $60 tip (22%) was included with the bill for a party of 4 despite the less than stellar service. This was a one and done for my group.

    Not ready for prime time. Visited on a Saturday night. Took 10 minutes for the hostess to take our reservation information when there were only a handful of people waiting. We were seated at a small table in a corner facing two walls next to a service door which was opened and closed about every 2 minutes. Took about an hour and ten minutes to get our food which was fine, bit not that special. Our server was apologetic about the delay getting our food, but didn't come back to ask about our food or if we needed anything until he came to ask if we were finished. On the bright side, we had 3 different cocktails, and they were all good. Overall, I can't recommend it. Your mileage may vary.

    Food and atmosphere were great, service was slow. Our appetizer came out before our drinks which was probably 20-30 minutes after being seated and my second drink ordered with the entree never came so we had to ask that it be taken off the bill. We would have gotten dessert but did not want to chance having to wait even longer for it to come out. I would go back for the food and atmosphere hoping that service just had an off night.

    After sitting down it took 25 minutes until we had to call someone over to acknowledge us and take our order and bring waters. Our app came out about 10 minutes later but still no drinks. We didn’t get checked on and I had to call someone over to let them know the drinks still hadn’t come out. Took another 30 minutes for drinks and 30 more minutes for our food.

    Food was truly wonderful - I had the carne asada, and the steak was as tender as I have ever had it; well seasoned and perfectly cooked. The ambience downstairs is magical and noise level just right: excellent sound track of music but didn't interfere with our ability to talk. Wait staff very attentive.

    Delicious food, great staff, fun atmosphere! Had a great time eating at Lulo's and would highly recommend it to folks interested in Colombian/Latin American cuisine and those looking to have a good meal in a festive locale. The staff are friendly and attentive. The quinoa ceviche was amazing!! We also enjoyed the churrasco and fried yuca with chicharron. Their rice is superb! Check out Lulo's, you won't be disappointed.
