Pacific Rim
Lulu Bar is an escape from the ordinary. Its welcoming vibe is reminiscent of hidden gems from your last vacation, only better because it’s right here in your own backyard. With a healthy, Pacific-inspired menu, Lulu’s wood-fired food is light and fresh — but heavy on flavour.
Chef Joseph Sokoloff’s fare is a tribute to the Pacific Ocean and many of the regions that touch it, with influences from Asia to Hawaii, California to British Columbia. Lulu’s fun, light, and refreshing drink menu is equally well-travelled. Its sake, beer, and creative cocktail offerings will make you feel like you’re far from home — and we like that.

    Was on its way to 5 stars. First 3 courses of squid, Thai sausage and potatoes were amazing. Next 2 of lobster dumplings and rice dish were good but not great. What really put a damper on it was halfway through dinner they sat 4 obviously drunk and obnoxious guys right beside us (a foot between our tables) when we were obviously on a date. Already drunk, they were then fed 2 rounds of shots followed by a round of doubles which if course didn't help. I know "Bar" is in the name of the restaurant but it is supposed to be a "Chef driven restaurant" not a nightclub. Still gave pretty good marks because the first dishes were great, the waiter was great, and the room was very cool. We may give them another try.

    This was our second visit to Lulu Bar and it did not disappoint. The food was wonderful, fresh, and vibrant. Our server was helpful and attentive, and the ambiance was fun and lively. The temperature was a little uncomfortable on the patio, either a little chilly or much to hot when they turned the heaters on, there was no in between. No complaints though.

    Food was excellent. Service was friendly. The concept didn’t work really. We ordered a number of shareable dishes but they arrived one at a time. The total meal took 3 hours and we were hungry most of the time. The enclosed patio is very loud as well. We think this restaurant could be 5 star if they improve on speed, delivery and noise dampening.

    Had a great time here with my friends! The patio ambiance was so nice, especially w/ the lights and heaters. Our waiter Michal was excellent and made our night super memorable. The portions were a good enough size to share and the drinks were super delicious. Will definitely be coming back here :)

    I had been to this restaurant 2 times previously. I would rate the 2 experiences as excellent in both food quality and service. Yesterday was unfortunately average at best. Food presentation was poor for most dishes. The pork belly was tiny pieces, cauliflower was burnt, squid was good but served with cold pineapple. Steak slices and potatoes came really late. Almost as if they were forgotten about and then finally noticed. I felt the server was challenged to be happy. Never even said hello when came to the table. Just asked if we wanted to order a drink. The wine experience wasn’t good. I asked for larger rim glasses and that seemed to surprise her. It sparked a good conversation. Overall, very average and we won’t be back anytime soon.

    Been a long time since I went to a restaurant where every dish was delicious, but Lulu Bar did it. Most of the dishes had a spicy kick that was just the right amount. Everything was flavourful and there were some interesting combinations. Best of all, they have some interesting tea options that will have me return to try out some more.

    Based on one visit, the food was quite interesting and mostly delicious. There were few guests, and service was terrific. I would go back and try completely different items, all sharing plates, to get a fuller perspective.
