Only ate breakfast there 4 days. Menu limited but very good and balanced and a very good price value. Staff is very good and they do not rush anybody.

This elegant looking restaurant definitely doesn't live up to the cost of the menu items. We went there, knowing that it was pricey but wanted to celebrate a special occasion. We were very disappointed. The food was only average, small servings, and, in fact slightly greasy. By the end of the meal it was an expensive mistake we won't be... More

Quite a disappointment. It started as we were seated at 6:30pm in the almost-empty restaurant and told several of the most promising items listed on the menu were unavailable. Things went downhill once food was served. Basket of stale bread, boring iceberg lettuce salad with watery and tasteless bleu cheese dressing and uninspired entrees. The “tomato basil salad” side dish... More

We ate at LuLu on the 4th of July. We had the churrasco steak, which was delicious. The décor and the service was wonderful. We recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the Punta Gorda area.

When we first started to go to the Wyvern Hotel about two years ago, the food at Lulu's was superb and the service matched. Over time, the service has not held to the standards that it once had and the menu has changed often. They used to offer specials which were indeed, special. Now they have an appbreviated menu and...

This really is a lovely restaurant.........the service was excellent. It was not crowded on the Wednesday that we went and I am not sure why. We all had salads with the homemade dressing and it was great. We all had different dinners, everyone liked what they ordered. My grouper was large but maybe a bit fishy tasting.......but that could be... More

We ate there before with friends and we were not impressed then. The same friend wanted to go back for her birthday because she loved their Mussels. Three couples met them there. The Restaurant was empty at 6:15 which told me a lot but our friend insisted on staying. The dining room is blocked off and you have to eat... More

I checked on line as we were celebrating a memorable moment in our lives and we wanted to return to LuLu since we enjoyed it so much before. Knowing that we are in Florida during the off season we checked the hotel and restaurant menu and called to make sure they were open and even made reservations. Half of the... More

Lulu's has totally changed their operation, although the Executive Chef (who doesn't cook there) remains. The dining room has been closed and the foyer by the bar is the only place to eat. There is no more lunch. The new dinner menu is comprised of mostly sandwiches and burgers, etc. If you liked Lulu's before, you'll probably be disappointed now.... More

My sister and I celebrated on the roof top of the Wyvern, then moved to Lulu's and had the best martinis with dinner. The food was great and the service was too!
