Lots of flavor and great presentation.Allison was our server & she was first class with a smile. recommended some really great dishes from the menu also.

We always look forward to dining experience at Lulou's because it is always first rate, and never disappoints. Their chefs are creative, without being "froo-froo" and you will want to return. Wait staff is friendly and attentive, without getting in the way. Outside patio is option - but inside in nice during hot seasons. Highly recommend.

The food here is definitely outstanding. We have been here several times and have never been disappointed with the cuisine. The menu changes somewhat frequently, which is nice because the chef is very creative with his offerings. The only reason for 4 stars vs. 5 is the service. I have dined with all sized parties and overall, the service is... More

We went there for my birthday. As usual the food was great as well as the service. This is one of our go to places when we want to celebrate. The presentation of the food is wonderful as well as tasty. The menu changes with what is fresh for that season. The wait staff are very attentive without being annoying.

Having just been transplanted from the Portland area, we had high and hopeful expectations for Lulou's after reading reviews. It wasn't that anything so bad, just nothing that was outstanding. Drinks were ordered to start us off and they were pretty great. It's a good thing they tasted good as we were not asked if we wanted another. We started... More

We shared the calamari frito dish with all 3 of is. This is a place that is great for celebrations as well as every day... More

We made reservations for our 20th wedding anniversary. They asked for our first names so I knew they would do something special. Yes, they printed our names and congratulations on your 20th on personalized menus. Great service, wonderful food. Great for a very special occasion. A little pricey.

Wonderful food and great service, prices are high and value would be much better if they did not make up the wines to exorbitant levels. This is the one thing that makes one reluctant to go back.

As close as you are going to get in Reno, for fine dining. Modern space, friendly staff, food was way above average for Reno. Good selection on the menu, opted for the Foi Gras which was good tho not to my liking in preparation, and the venison which was delicious. Also had calamari spicy salad and the scallops both hit...
