“Great people-watching, excellent vegetarian and meat options both”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

Loved this place! Who on earth knew brussel sprouts could taste so good?!

Remember when you were little and your mom put veggies on your plate, and wouldn't let you leave the table until you finished them? I'd sit for a looooooong time not eating the brussel sprouts because they smelled like stinky feet and tasted bitter. Well, mother, Lulu has figured out a way to not only get me to eat them...but to LOVE them! They're served a bit crispy and marinated in some sort of a sweet sauce that makes them the cat's meow. ORDER THEM!

Our group of five decided on heavy appetizers as a meal and sampled several different items. All were exceptional. Service was good too, and for a Saturday night it was really surprising that there was no wait for seating outside. They've got those big portable heat lamps sprinkled around on the sidewalk outside in case you get chilly.

Lulu is in a great spot for people-watching, right across from Greenstreet. The menu, the location, and the service will bring us back next time we're in Coconut Grove.

“FUN, FRIENDLY and FINE...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2011

Love this little indoor/outdoor restaurant in the The Grove!

The food isn't gourmet but it's close! Try the asparagus or the brussel sprouts... Fantastic and fun.

Love sitting outside and people watching. The wait staff is always fun and friendly. Always a pleasure!

“Wonderful Meal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2011

My wife and I ate here on a recent vacation to Miami and very much enjoyed ourselves. I had a hamburger with French fries and she had a veggie burger with asparagus. They customized her veggie burger, serving it on wheat bread instead of a bun, with no problems. The outdoor eating area was fun, we had a small issue with a cigar smoker who was dining next to us, but overall did not affect our overall satisfaction. Neat place, would dine again.

“Very Good Outdoor seating in Coconut Grove”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2011

Discovered LuLu while walking in downtown Coconut Grove on a Saturday. Sat outside and enjoyed an excellent Asian Chicken salad. The waiter we had was friendly, unobtrusive and well-mannered. The location at the corner of the streets is great for people-watching and on a good weather day the combination of good food, good service, good company, and great location make this a must-visit for outdoor seating. Would go back anytime.

“Last day in Miami - glad we went here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2011

If you are ever in Coconut Grove (which I recommend if you want to get away from touristy Lincoln Rd), then you have to visit Lulu. We came here for lunch right before we started driving back home. Absolutely excellent place! The food was top notch: delicious chicken wings (house's own ginger sauce - delicious), excellent salads, and best drinks I had in Miami. They are self-proclaimed kings of the Bloody Mary's, and I can vouch that it was delicious. Try their bacon infused BM as well, first time I have seen that. In addition, the blood orange mojito was so good I wanted to take a few for the road :-)
