Second time at Lula. First was a private party hosted by Jazz FM. I liked it so much I brought my family for dinner/music/dancing. Our server was attentive and upbeat. Food great. And the artists were amazing. Will definitely be back.
It was awesome! The food and the energy of the place was amazing! Will definitely comeback
We saw amazing musicians and the food , ambiance and service were super... We were placed close to the front (which I requested) next time I may ask to be further back as I noticed when I walked to the back the music was a better "mix" ( it was difficult to hear the singer and miked tabla drums at the front) . in general a wonderful evening, relaxed friendly atmosphere!
Beautiful venue! Excellent service (our wait staff was a total sweetheart). The food was delicious, the band was wonderful, great friendly crowd too I cannot wait to go again
We were at the venue for the Jewish Music Festival. Too many patrons were talking through the performance and the servers were walking back and forth between us and the stage.
Amazing food, drinks and atmosphere. Loved the decor and our waitress was absolutely amazing. The band was spectacular. Only down side was the dancefloor got packed so it was hard to dance
Great overall experience .The crab cake was amazing the only drawback to much sauce that it made the salad soggy .
We enjoyed the evening however, our table was a high top table on the dance floor with a rope barrier. It was slightly uncomfortable to be sitting there especially while dance lessons were taking place. These tables seemed like they were squeezed there just to get more revenue. The food was good our server was actually excellent, however, the meals took forever to come out. Our waitress was kind , attentive and very personable, she was great!
Not disappointed in Lula Lounge itself but by the fact that Open Table did not pass our request for a table closer to the show. We where at at the back and very uncomfortable so just had our meal and left before the show started. Lula had no idea we had requested a table in the front so this will be the last time using this app. Despite that, the service from Ivan was top notch and tipped him accordingly.
Avoid a table too near the speakers, otherwise you will be partially deaf for the rest of the evening.
Be prepare to have fun and learn to Salsa. The trainer was amazing! She kept everyone engaged and from young to very old, they all learned to shake their bootie in a very seductive manner.
Speaker Slam- Body Beautiful was absolutely incredible. The staff were so accommodating and I could tell that they enjoyed the even too!
Pros: The food was great, we loved out server, the salsa lesson was fun, and Lula is decorated in such a fun way.
Cons: The volume of the band was just so high, they were great but you couldn’t enjoy it. And our server had such a large section to take care of we feel he was overburdened. We requested our desserts and bills and it took about an hour to receive them, again, I wouldn’t blame the server, I think it was a staffing issue.
We all had an amazing experience! Food and music especially the band was great! Great birthday it was!
Supper was tasty, the quartet amazing and the dance lesson really fun. The sound mixing was off when the large band played. Brass and percussion drowned out the guitarist (who was amazing in the quartet) and vocalists. Would definitely come again.
We have been to Lula Lounge before and enjoyed both the venue and the food. We were disappointed on this occasion that there was not a full menu. But it is a lovely venue, enjoyable menu items and fantastic service.
More of fun and novelty place not fine dining
We booked for a Thursday and were expecting their dinner menu but instead we had to choose from a bunch of appetizers.
We were also unaware that there was a special event that night and the reservation made online said nothing about a surcharge for the entertainment.
We also had three or four different people, including the manager come to our table to insinuate that we would get charged for the special event. Even though there was no “real dinner menu” and nothing clear in the reservation.
To add insult to injury, the play was horrible and about lucifer. Hated the whole experience but I have friends doing an event there in May. So hopefully it’s their chance to redeem themselves.
Went out for a girls night! Had a blast! The good and drinks where super yummy and the service was great too!
DJ and salsa band where amazing! Had a great night out :)
Lula lounge is certainly one unique and spectacular experience! The live music along with delicious food, I was amazed by the night we had. The jerk chicken was actually spicy which is sometimes hard to find in restaurants and the sponge cake was so juicy filled with such a creamy flavour. You should’ve definitely give that dessert a try! The live music brought me right back to vacation vibes. Would recommend to my friends as a fun and impressive date night spot or a great GNO location!
I love your location, the staffs the people gathering with no worries just having a great time away from all worries we will return back as always Thank you for allowing us to be part of such a beautiful place call home away from home 🏠
Lovely staff. Yummy food. Very happy that we could have 8 of us to our booth. A wonderful night of fabulous music and dancing and dining for a great cause....Andrew Cash!
Wonderful comfortable vibe. Great service and good live #music
Great atmosphere! The live band and singers that night were amazing. Our server was attentive and friendly. Convenient parking nearby
Great show and atmosphere. Staff are very attentive and hard working.
Amazing Birthday Celebration!
What an amazing night for my first time there. It started with the hostess staff, we called twice to let them know we would be late and Kelly answered the phone both times and assured us that our table would be kept. When we arrived, it was Kelly that walked us to our table. BONUS!!! the food was excellent, from the Wings to the Jerk Chicken, we were blessed. Music.....can't be undone for our memories, the band was phenomenal. THe atmosphere literally made us feel like we were on vacation complimented by the interior decor which looked a little "playa de carmen Mexico". We will be back and back often!!
This was my Third Mardi Gras Visit, To Hear Alex Pangman the sound was Cleaner but Too loud for me,
But the Meal was delightful, had the Catfish, chocalate desert also. see you next year.
Enjoyed the evening, band was excellent, DJ was as well. Not a fan of the wine. Ordered both the Chilean bottle and the italian bottle, both poor - would recommend they change their wine menu. Food service very slow - we had the salmon for dinner it was good. Our reservation was for 730 we did not start eating until well past 9 pm. Dance floor became very crowded but overall it was a fun experience.
Food was good, ambiance was great, service was extremely poor, reservations were for 8:15, weren’t served till 9:30, had to ask for our desserts, weren’t brought out till 11:30. Waitress never came to ask if we wanted drinks. To make it worse TIP was included, her service didn’t deserve a TIP
We love the place but the band that played had too much screaming. We listen to a lot of Latin bands and we did not enjoy this one. The band itself was OK but the singers gave me a headache I would still recommend this place to anyone
Had a wonderful meal and evening
The venue was perfect, staff were very friendly and professional
Would recommend it highly for a great night out
It was difficult to get our server back to the table.
It took almost 25 minutes to get a cup of coffee and asked two servers (our and the hostess) before the coffee arrived.
(I drink coffee because I can't drink alcohol.) Felt like perhaps there was less importance on serving a coffee over serving the higher priced alcoholic drinks to others.
Other than that it was a nice evening at the Speaker Slam.
I did not eat at Lula. so I could not rate it. Il be honest I did attend a Jazz /rock night and left cause I didn't enjoy the music. HOW EVER, I will be returning for a Latin night because I enjoyed the atmosphere they had. So Lula won me over through atmosphere, vibes and overall friendly service. See you next time.
We came to see our favourite Tango ensemble and they did not disappoint! Lula lounge provides the perfect backdrop for these talented musicians. The food quality was very good and the service exceptional. It made for a very romantic evening.
Amazing ambiance, excellent music (great sound system) lovely servers. Went for Valentine's Day and couldn't ask for a more romantic setting.
The prix fixe menu was $60 per person plus drinks, which you pay in advance.
The drink special my wife ordered was a French martini which was excellent. I ordered a Mojito which was not great. No balance to the flavours, just rum taste. Shouldn't this be a signature drink given the venue's theme?
Aside from the chips and dip (lovely house-made salsa, guac and bean dip) the rest of the meal was extremely disappointing. Though jerk chicken appeared on the menu, the kitchen sent word they were out of chicken. On Valentine's Day you're not fully stocked?
We opted for the salmon instead (the beef option was an additional $11!). It was undercooked and rubbery. Side veggies were passable, rice not very warm. Neither my wife nor I finished our meal.
We had selected the espresso chocolate cake for dessert. It was very basic, and went unfinished as well.
For such an interesting and attractive venue (even the washrooms were nice - yes, decent washrooms south of Bloor!) I can't fathom why you wouldn't put together a better dining experience. In total, this was a $200 bill. I can think of many amazing meals to be had in Toronto for that amount.
I would visit again for a concert but not to eat. With such a gem of a setting, I hope they improve the kitchen offerings and do it right.
Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your experience. We are always trying to improve our food & service so customer input is always helpful. We do have to apologize for running out of chicken. We had put together a special Valentine’s special sharing menu and expected that to be very popular, just as it has been in previous years. But this Valentine’s Day we were caught off guard by the many requests for our signature Jamaican jerk chicken!
Great place. I highly recommend everyone visit it.
Lula has amazing food, friendly staff and incredible live music. The atmosphere is energetic and engaging! Thank you Lula!
Celebrated my wife's birthday with good friends.
Great atmosphere inside.
Lula is well run, great food and fantastic staff.
What a tremendous evening right from our entrance to the hall, outstanding value for the money! The staff were very friendly and helpful with all aspects of the evening. The meal itself was a delightful surprise, generous servings and delicious. The salsa lesson was a riot, with a full dance floor with people of all ages. Both bands were terrific and the atmosphere was like a party with friends we didn't know. A sexy and fun experience. Just do it!
I love Lula Lounge! I have been here a few times now and I have always had such a great time. The service is fantastic and very relaxed. The Salsa lessons are so much fun, and the live music never disappoints! One improvement they could stand to make is the sound...too loud and distorted. If you want to have a truly great night out, then Lula is it!
