4th visit. Still tops. Friendly, knowlegable staff. Menu is imaginative and beautifully prepared. Fois always perfectly done. New deserts are imaginative, lovely to look at, and delicious. Would be competitive in SF or even Paris maybe.

This restaurant was recommended to us by another restaurant in Reno and they were right - it was fantastic! It is refreshingly not located in a casino area. The food was incredible. We only wish we lived closer! Great wine list too! That's important to us!

This may be the best restaurant in Reno. The food is fresh and prepared to perfection. Service is wonderful. Yes - the portions are smaller than you are used to and dinner for two will likely push the $100 range. If that sounds to out of bounds for you, then I recommend you skip Lulou's. However, if you want to... More

Truly fine dining. An intimate, lovely dining experience. Great decor, great food and excellent service. A very upscale menu with plenty of choices. The kitchen is very accommodating and will cater to customer's requests - with a smile! We've been there many times and have never been disappointed, however, it's a bit pricey.

The food is superbly prepared here and the delicate unique pairings make this an exquisite dining experience. Everyone enjoyed their dishes and we would go back for another special experience, due to their very expensive a la cart menu

My wife and I went for a special meal out. We shared our plates the entire evening, and had a wine pairing for each course. We started with the porcini mushroom appetizer, which was wonderful, especially when paired with a light chardonnay. We followed that with the warm goat cheese salad, paired with a good California pinot noir. The entree... More

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.
