Outstanding experience

This is truly one of THE best dinners I've ever had. We ordered the 12-course tasting menu. Words cannot describe the exquisite dishes that Chef Walsh served - out of this world! It is a meal that we'll never forget. The presentation, creativeness, and taste of each dish was a work of art. The... read more

The location is modern cool (apparently they are getting ready to move somewhere else), the cook Irish, the food modern Mexican and... fusion - set menus - outstanding. If you do want to spend some money on food this is the place to go to have a most delicious explosion of flavors with every dish. 6 courses are more than... More

Wow. What an incredible dining experience at Lula Bistro. The menu consists of tasting options of various lengths. I chose the 8-course menu from the server's recommendations. Living in San Francisco, I've been fortunate to dine at some fantastic restaurants, but for this type of dining, Lula Bistro sits toward the top, and when factoring in the value for the... More

Have visited for the last four years each December due to a work event - and it never fails to delight and surprise. The food is exquisite - a group of us tried the taster menu - 9 courses for a very reasonable sum - each course was well thought out, surprised the palate - a taste sensation in every... More

I was very disappointed w my dinner at Lula Bistro. The place was almost empty, with very poor atmosphere and music that was to loud. Their recommended drink, a special margarita w tequila, was far too large and far too sweet to drink.The bigger disappointment, however, came when we were informed that there was no menu tonight but rather an...

Probably one of the best restaurants I have ever been. The menu changes constantly. But tonight was a pre set tasting menu. Everything was exceptionally delicious, the service is outstanding. They explain every dish. The combination of flavors and textures is the best. Even though the chef is not Mexican,the ingredients are, and even though it is not Mexican food,... More

I came in and ordered the 8 course dinner. Ambiance was gorgeous. Wine list was also very good. I ordered a mezcal cocktail with apples and cinnamon. Really good. Food was amazing, beautiful plating and the flavors weren't afraid. Every dish played with the flavors and texture but also still managing to keep the soul of the dish. This is... More

Lula Bistro is a world class restaurant. The food is creative, unusual, interesting and exquisite. You order from 4 to 16 courses and tell the server if you have food allergies, are vegetarian, etc. They plan and execute a fabulous meal for you. We ordered 6 courses and were given several extras. It was plenty of food, great variety. Don't... More

For those of you who are tired of Italian dishes and the typical Argentine Grill you find in Guadalajara and are open for a new experience, you need to come to Lula Bistro. My first time was 2 weeks ago with customers. The option of 4 , 6, 8 and 16 course menus are incredible and yes, surpisingly the 4... More
