My husband took me here for my birthday dinner and I was excited because I'd gone here often for lunch, but not dinner. I ordered the pork belly appetizer to start. Loved the concept, but the execution was poor. The polenta was extremely dry and the pork belly was undercooked. For my entree, I had the scallops, which were presented with a great sear, but sadly gritty and served on top of beans that were very undercooked. My husband had the pork tenderloin which he was pleased with, but the accompanying brussel sprouts were burned. All great concepts but poor execution. With a better meal, I would not have been as irritated with the extremely slow service. Regardless, I adore their lunch menu, especially the Cobb salad and great soup options.

We had lunch there yesterday, and it was wonderful. We have missed the Lulu Grille for some time and I think we have finally found "our new Lulu's." We have been searching for that since they closed. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted divine. Service was excellent. We will be back and often.

The food was excellent, and the atmosphere was nice, but it was nothing special. Lacked that spark that makes a dining experience memorable.
