This was our go to spot during our week in Palm Springs. Food was good and drinks were great! Happy hour menu was full of selections and the menu is well rounded. It won’t disappoint!

Food was good as was the service. Nice atmosphere. Solid, nostalgic place reminiscent of Hollywood in the 50s.

Not only has the portion of the tuna tower decreased in recent years, but the last time (and I mean that WAS the last time) there was much more avocado than tuna. Very disappointing. Expensive for a tower of avocado with a suggestion of tuna.

I had heard about this place - just way too crowded for me! Noisy and the food is not all that in my opinion. Server was way to busy and inattentive. Busy vibe if you go for that -

I’ve been going to Lulu for years. It’s always fun, food is always good, everyone that works there is always happy and the prices, one of the best values in Palm Springs. Check out their other restaurant also, Aqua in Rancho Mirage

Loved the atmosphere at Lulu! We sat out on the patio and enjoyed brunch. Great service, good food. I had the spinach, mushroom and feta omelet and really enjoyed it. Husband had eggs over easy with bacon. Bacon was thick but crispy. We will definitely...More

It glitters from the outside and in so had to be visited and did not disappoint. Excellent service, classic Californian menu, we had pizza and the steak salad, both very good, and an very enjoyable place to be.

I came to this restaurant while I was on vacation. They do not have a specific menu for happy hour, they offer reduced prices on appetizers and cocktails.
