Lulu California Bistro
Great value, good selection,Great value, good selection, good food and good service. Will continue to take family and friends to Lulu's for lunch and diner to enjoy and feel a part of the in town Palm Springs vibe.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA very nice addition to downtownAs usual, food was very nice and well presented, and the service was attentive and friendly.
I prefer to sit outside because I find it a bit noisy inside. If you want to have a conversation, that is what I recommend5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat choice great food and funBrought my 86 Y O mom, and we had a great meal, with incredible service. She loved it, we loved it. Can't say enough good about this place.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect vacation dateI was in Palm Springs for vacation and wanted a dinner out of the hotel. Most places in Palm Springs seem kind of old and have weird decor, but Lulu was airy, modern, and polished. The prix fix dinner (3 courses for $19.99) was SUCH a steal. The menu was really expansive with lots of gluten free and vegetarian options. I had the lobster ravioli in the prix fixe and couldn't believe I paid so little. Great food, great environment, and great service from the wait staff. The host/hostess that night seemed snobby and like they were annoyed I was there, but I live in San Francisco so that is kind of the norm, haha. I wanted to come back but we left the next day. My fav place in PS!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLuLu-liscious!This is a great restaurant! Not only for great decor and fun atmosphere but the food was really good! Our waiter was great and we enjoyed the relaxing feel of the patio! We will be back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you very much aswe thought the food was very good and very generous and nicely priced. You remembered Evelyn's 89th Birthday with a fabulous
piece of chocolate cake and candle, thank you. Great mixed crowd, decor and good menu. Service lovely, really attractive men (much better than L.A.)
only 1 sour note, tvs with large screen had very violent martial art kick in the face show on, not great for dining and relaxing, very wierd. Made my daughter very uncomfortable who is 41.
Check the tv shows,not a rough crowd sitting there on Mother's Day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Da y......early dinner.We enjoyed the restaurant......especially our table for 5 .........our ADULT children and Adult GRAND children

Mother's Day was superb. I made reservations and I was so pleased that there was no complications with our reservation, that it was honored correctly. That was huge. We were on time. I knew that our table might be desired as we asked for outside. All went well.
We have taken my 4 and a half granddaughter there before. She behaved, the place is kid friendly without losing its adult ambiance. Can't be more pleased.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM"I love the relaxed feel of"I love the relaxed feel of this place - I definitely will return to try more dishes.

Our orders were taken promptly and service was attentative. All four of us ordered off of the PrisxFixe menu and we weren't dissapointed! Our wait staff was friendly and accomodating throughout the meal. This wasn't our first dine at this restaurant, and will not be our last, as the atmosphere coupled with the reasonable prices, good service and food makes this one a big winner for us!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphereGreat Hot Spot and views!

All that has changed. It is always busy, but is large so mostly wait times are minimal. My only criticism is that there is too much salt in the food, or at least there was in the dishes my husband and I ate.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLulu's was crowded, but itLulu's was crowded, but it didn't seem to bother the service or the kitchen. The delicious food came out hot; all the servers presented with a smile. This is a gem in the heart of downtown Palm Springs.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner for Two!The atmosphere is fantastic. So is the location. Service is perhaps too quick. We just finished starters when one waiter removed the empties another standing next to him downed the main course. Otherwise the service was excellent.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVery lively & cool atmosphereVery lively & cool atmosphere with good food & great people watching!

The restaurant did not put pressure on us to leave, which was appreciated, but the waiters were nevertheless attentive in refilling water glasses and checking to see if anything else was desired.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a nice dinner withWe had a nice dinner with friends on the patio. Food and service were very good. I found the patio too noisy as you are right on a busy street. I much prefer Aqua Paza's patio as it is more beautiful and much quieter. I would come back to this restaurant, but not for the patio.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!!Fabulous food, attentive waiters, great atmosphere make this restaurant the best!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLulu's is THE spot in downtown PS!Lulu's is always the first place I think of to take out of town guests.

Food was GREAT and will be recommending this location to others4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place!This was our second visit. The first time we sat outside and it was a wonderful experience to be able to people watch while enjoying excellent food.
I saw children of many ages yet they were seated in areas that avoided the bar scene.
I was impressed by the wait staff concern, promptness and energy.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLulu is a must - we had friendsLulu is a must - we had friends visiting from the Bay Area with young kids and we all had a great brunch on the patio - couldn't have asked for better service or friendlier wait staff. Kudos and thank you Lulu!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant surprise. The threePleasant surprise. The three course special was an excellent value! Glad I made a reservation.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Lulu downtown. It isLove Lulu downtown. It is always the go to place for us locals and especially for entertaining out of town visitors. Always good, always fun, service always great. Please don't change a thing.
Love the on-line reservation system.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great and funGreat food, great and fun atmosphere and great people watching in the heart of Palm Springs.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had made a reservationWe had made a reservation and were seated at a very nice table, quiet toward the back yet still close enough to be able to view the street scene. There were four in our party and all four of us ordered different entree and all for were pleased. The ladies thought the lemon drop martinis were very good.
We were pleasantly surprised in the quality of the service and the food as we thought it might be somewhat of a tourist trap.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeThe ahi tuna with avocado appetizer was superb!! The sea scallops was just okay, a little bland and cooked a little too much. Great atmosphere - if you want to sit outside, make sure you request when making reservations. There is also a inside balcony which overlooks the restaurant and street which would be fun to sit at as well.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMUncomfortable chairs!!While I LOVE this restaurant because its food is wonderful, but also because it offers a great Gluten Free menu. I don't have to "search" all the ingredients to find something to eat. They have its choices all on its own page. LOVE the dessert choices too. HOWEVER....I really wish they'd invest in some comfortable chairs! The tall bar chairs are down right dangerous, (ok, I'm kinda short, but STILL!) and a healthy (taller) guy with us had to get up during dinner to "walk" as the chairs were hurting his legs/hips. No we aren't old....we all felt the chairs desperately needed to be changed out for something more comfortable! I've eaten here a few times, but probably won't choose it again simply due to most of us being uncomfortable.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFun atmosphereLulu had a fun ambiance. They offer a broad menu and the food was good.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways packed with high energyAlways packed with high energy locals and tourists alike, Lulu is a Palm Springs classic. Food is good, they are noted for their 3 course dinner for $19.95, a great deal that keeps the place packed. You will want to make a reservation for weekends or holidays.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe joint was jumping!We were not extremely hungry, so ordered everything from the appetizer menu. The salads really were entrée size, so plenty satisfying. We ordered a wedge salad and the Pear salad, delicious! Our waiter was extremely attentive and very pleasant. This place is very high-energy, some might consider it a little bit noisy. Would definitely come back here again.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always come back. . . . .We had a terrific meal at Lulu's. The appetizer's were very tasty and generous. The drinks the waiter recommended were delicious and fresh tasting. The service was great. We always come here when we're in Palm Springs.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was wonderful...Our waiter was wonderful... An asset to LuLu!
