Lulou's is a wonderful restaurant with great food. It is quite expensive so be prepared, for 3 of us with tip the bill was almost $400. The food is great, some of it unique and great service. Make reservations as it does fill up.

My husband I were staying nearby and noticed it while driving to our hotel. We decided to drop by late for a drink and dessert. The decor was stunning and had a cool relaxed vibe. We sat at the bar and had a great time enjoying our treats. Service, quality and presentation were top notch. Everything was perfect including an... More

I like the atmosphere if's modern and elegant. The food is great it's simple but complex and flavors are great. The menu changes seasonally. The wine menu is good and they have a full bar. The service is great.

Had an amazing time here...again. Love Lulou's atmosphere and ambiance. Pork-belly and fois gras appetizers were fabulous. Loved the spicy Thai duck soup and brussel sprout salad. Great wine list. Dessert, unfortunately was a complete disappointment. Overall a great time!

Prices for steak were higher than they should be. The place itself is somewhat small and not all that fancy. Foods good, however I expected more for the price and hype. Service was good and some appetizers we're very good and others just ok. For steak I think there's a lot of better options locally.

We have been searching for a fine dining restaurant since we moved here. Lulou's, though not known of by many, was consistently recommended who did know of it. They do not have a web menu to preview but we took the recommendation on faith and our faith was rewarded. They are only open evenings for dinner and feature an adventurous... More

Went with my siblings for a Friday night dinner. We split 3 appetizers and enjoyed all three. The entrees were also good, two of us had scallops, two of us had steak. We were seated on the patio which was comfortable and surprisingly quiet despite being right up against a busy street, the fence did a good job damping the... More

I really want to love this place because the food really was great. But my brain is holding me back because of how incredibly pretentious it was. I mean...it's not far from a divey looking nude cabaret and a bunch of adult "bookstores" on the main road going through downtown Reno, and yet they get away with charging you massive... More
