“Enjoyable outdoor dining experience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Sitting on a tree shaded corner, we had a lovely sidewalk table. Our appetizers, the freshly homemade Burrata and the Sweet Soy Brussel Sprouts, and our dessert, the Double Chocolate Pot de Creme, were outstanding. The service was very attentive and our server was very helpful about places to visit & eat locally. This is a neighborhood gem!

“What a cute spot...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed eating an early dinner at LuLu. Our waitress was awesome and very attentive. The red sangria was delicious, I recommend getting the pitcher if you are sharing them; it's more cost effective. The roasted dates were so delicious we went back a second time to get them again. The turkey sandwich was light and perfect for an early dinner on a warm night. We went back for lunch on a Saturday and were a bit disappointed. Our waiter was lacking all that a good waiter should be...attentive, prompt, in this universe (he was spacey). We each had a salad that for the price was lacking flavor, but the dates were again awesome! My friend had the spicy bloody mary and she said it was one of the best she has had.

Sitting outside is a perfect place to eat and enjoy the people watching...and there is a lot of people watching to do.

“If "happening" is your scene, this is the place for you!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

It just wasn't the place for me. It was a Thursday night, and it was dinner time in Coconut Grove. I met a friend for drinks and tapas (small plates) which is what this restaurant is known for. Yes, this is Miami, but I felt it very overpriced for what we got. But, if people watching is your scene, this really might be the place for you. It has outdoor seating, the sangria was tasty (if expensive), and the food was very good (if never enough on each plate). You've been warned. That said, enjoy.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Loved to sit on the sidewalk tables and just enjoy the rich flavours.
Staff was very friendly and helpful and the food has an organic, trendy feel to it.
I had the truffles fries, then some salmon with a side salad and goat cheese with fig jelly.
So so good, with great presentation.
Great atmosphere and wonderful neighborhood.
