Amazing vibe and great service
The atmosphere and stage, dining set up at Lula Lounge is spectacular. I had the jerk chicken dinner, which was outstanding and substantial. I also had a Songbird Cocktail that looked and tasted divine! Kudos to the bartenders and chefs who make the whole dining experience absolutely stellar.
Our service was not up to the high standards one would expect based on the food and ambiance, though. Our waiter was not the most easygoing, and rushed to bring us the bill before the set was done, and before we could order dessert. There was plenty of time for us to have had dessert and paid up before the set ended, to allow staff to clear up for the next show. So I have to say I was surprised.
The show we attended, the Etta James Tribute was absolutely spectacular! The line up and the the host band, Bad Luck Woman, just rocked the house! I could not believe the energy and musical showmanship they all brought to the evening. Absolutely flawless! We will be coming back to Lula Lounge regularly after this. We were just blown away! I honestly can't say that I know of many other venues in Toronto offering this level of performance with this level of restaurant quality. Keep up the phenomenal work!
We were at a book launch and were given a very good table. To my surprise the food was really good. I had the Kale salad and added shrimp. It was delicious and I ordered an extra order of shrimp as they were so good. Dessert was the fresh fruit basket that was lovely and you eat the whole thing including the basket!
Wines are reasonably priced and the service was excellent. All in all a good experience.
Great music, dancing, the crowd is charged and and lots of action. Meal package is the way to go, all depends on who the band is, DJ is great.
This was my first time going to Lula with full dinner (delicious), dance lesson (lots of fun) and show (we couldn't believe we were paying so little for this quality of entertainment). It was amazing. Had a great time, no problem at all, and since we paid for a package we only buy our drinks there. Even coat check is included, how about that!
Fantastic atmosphere, drinks and band. A great night out with friends or partner
The service was outstanding. We asked for a quiet table and they moved us to a table in the front which was perfect. The food was delicious. Definitely want to take more salsa lessons.
The vibe and the service was Fab.
One thing I would really recommend Lula Lounge to look into -
Ask servers to be considerate when they are serving VIP tables in the midst of a performance.
I had to watch a server pour 8 glasses of champagne while he stood right in front of the performers for a good 5 mins (I counted the glasses).
Either change the seating layout for VIP tables or ask your servers to be mindful.
I mentioned this to the person serving us, I was told that Lula minimizes interruptions while serving VIP tables but that wasn't the case.
I hope someone reads this and acts on this at Lula
Thank you so much for taking the time to provide this feedback. The set up for the event is unique to these burlesque performances and we’re still tweaking the details. We’ll definitely talk to the staff about being aware of the sightline of the clients behind the VIP tables. Our staff is always trying to provide timely and efficient service to clients at every table. Perhaps awareness of the timing of the service would have also helped the situation. Thank you again for your recommendation and
Things aren't as advertised.
Staff have no ideas about what's going on specially at the reception.
Thank you for taking the time to give us this feedback. If you have time to email us at email@example.com and let us know which event you attended, that would help us to follow up with our staff to make sure that they all fully understand the details of the performances that we are hosting. We’re also very happy to hear any other feedback that you’d like to share with us. We are always trying to improve the experiences of our clients.
Great vibes and great show. Food/Service not worth the price. For $50 per plate I would expect scrambled eggs to be cooked well and not cold. :-(
Thank you for taking the time to give us this feedback regarding the eggs. We will definitely follow up with our service team. Regarding the price, the $49 package did include the drag performance (which was $20 a ticket), coffee and a mimosa but we 100% agree that the breakfast should be served hot! Thanks for coming to the brunch and writing the review!
Amazing time at Drag Brunch!! I would recommend it to anyone! Can’t wait for the next one
I was celebrating my 21st birthday and had the best experience possible! Started off with a complimentary birthday mojito, a 3 course meal with mouth watering flavours and all cooked perfectly! The calamari was tender, the salmon had a nice crust on the outside and flaked with every bite. It was all perfect! The live music changes weekly, but the band on Saturday night was authentic and very talented in salsa/merengue/bachata music; raggaeton and more Latin pop was also played during the live music intermission to provide music for everyone’s taste. 10/10 would recommend Lula lounge for any celebration or night of fun for the full experience!
Horrible experience. Everything was fine until service people thought they are master and can’t push and yield at customer. I spent 600$ that night to hear that I have to respect people workers that yield and pushed me as agressive. Never again. Service is key for such kind of place. You loose my trust
We're glad that you liked the food and ambience but very sorry to hear that something happened that changed your mind about the overall experience. We do expect that all clients and staff treat one another with respect while at Lula, as we strive to create a space where everyone feels welcome and safe. If you want to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about your experience at Lula, we'd be very happy hear more about what happened.
Seeing ‘Let Us Be Frank’, the Frank Sinatra musical extravaganza with Singer Jamie Oliver at Lula Lounge was outstanding. The food was good and the music was epic!
Thank you for attending this year's Let Us Be Frank. We hope to see you again! If you'd like to give us any more detailed feedback by emailing email@example.com, we are always looking for ways to improve our food and drink offerings as well as our service.
First time at Lila lounge and it was great. Service was good. Food was good. Music was excellent!
Will def go back
Thank you for the 5 star review! We really appreciate you taking the time to give your feedback!
I would recommend to my friends but things to note. The live music is great but the cost for the 12 pc orchestra $28 each plus food/drinks $55 = $83 pp adds up to $166 per couple...it’s located in Little Portugal and not downtown core. The venue needs some updating, basement washroom is super cold and damp.
Thank you for the review, Stella! We're glad you enjoyed the show. I think that you were there for the Frank Sinatra Tribute. We just wanted to assure you that the admission charge that you mentioned went directly to the musicians and to thank you for supporting live music in Toronto!
i have known about Lula lounge for a long time. never had the chance to visit . until i saw that Reina was booked to play there, anytime she is in Toronto or anywhere in the GTA i will go see her, amazing talent.
the show was great as usual and the sound guy did a awesome job sound was perfect for Reina's show.
i had the jerk chicken and having a being part Jamaican it was very tasty , hats off to the chef .
Great atmosphere. Awesome DJ. The live music was good too but the volume was so high! Food was great too. Overall we had so much fun and will be back for sure 👍
The opening band was so awful that my friend and I complained and walked out.
Over the years I have loved visiting but not now - I am not sure what has happen recentlyl but the complete atmosphere was uninviting.
HI Elizabeth, we're so sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the opening band and didn't get to stay for the main concert! We're always interested in hearing feedback about people's experience at Lula so that we can try to improve. If you'd like to share more details, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your time.
If you want to feel like you are on vacation get great food and entertainment in a flash go to Lula lounge!
Lula Lounge is the place to be! From the moment you enter the place, you are greeted as a great friend!! Fantastic food and service. The atmosphere is full of energy and love for the music!! And did I mention the music?! LL is the place to be for Latin music and culture!! What a piece of heaven!!! Thank you!!
Absolutely amazing relaxing vibe. Music at time is get away to the past, where rhythm and blues were all you needed to enjoy great company on a night out.
We were shoved into a little corner by the bar on a high top table other then that the food was midi occur but the ambience and entertainment was the bomb!!! I would recommend this bar for a fun salsa night out.
Service was good but very slow. The staff were helpful and friendly. But the service was very slow. The meal was good.
The food was actually way better than I expected because there was really only one vegan option, but it happened to be very tasty. The three dip appetizer (guacamole particularly) left something to be desired. It is a latino place so I would expect good guac!!! It tasted like a sad store bought version. My pina colada tasted like it had zero alcohol in it. We had a great table right near the stage so that was awesome, but the tables are really close together which made for a cramped experience. Our waiter was quiet, but on the ball in terms of taking our orders and getting our food out. He neglected to include one beer on our bill which I pointed out to him -- usually in these cases the restaurant will then thank you and leave it on the house, but he reprinted the bill to include the drink. Not a big deal as that is what we ordered, but it's a nice gesture to at least thank the customer for pointing it out. Overall, good experience!
My experience at Lula Lounge has always been good. I just would like to be able to sit down sooner, specially this Sunday. I felt that the staff were not ready on time. We had a little confusion about the time.
A great venue, clean, great service and good food.
Great Value and Entertaining for the price! Salsa Dancing and Lesson included and the band was Fantastic! Like a 11 or 12 piece Salsa Band! Incredible! Complimentary Champagne for our Anniversary! Very Romantic and full of Ambiance! Cant wait to come back!
Drag brunch was an amazing time! Cant wait for the next one!
Attended Drag Brunch, it was fabulous!!!! Get the bottomless mimosas!!!!!
Great event, fun atmosphere and tasty food. I would recommend checking out an event at Lula Lounge.
Over priced, food was oily. Would never go back for dinner.
Nice place and very good ambiance. reception at door was great, friendly and efficient seating. Thank you for the complimentary glass of champagne for our anniversary. It was a nice and remembering touch that we did not get in other places in Toronto. Food was good however, soup was a bit spicy. all else was great. More room for dancing would have been great but, outstanding place to visit again.
Perfect evening! We celebrated our anniversary at Lula Lounge. The atmosphere was amazing and the vibe is very good. I would specifically like to point out how amazing the staff is - we were getting late, and they made all the adjustments to make our experience pleasant. The waiters were super nice and friendly. We felt very welcome! The food was PERFECT!
The lesson is wonderful,the band is very talented and the after-party is just perfect - all the best songs were played and everybody was having a good time.
This was a great place, parking was and issue... but hey we live in T. I would go again and again!
Sunday October 6, 2019 we attended Celebrating the music of Gladys Knight. The show was fantastic, we also had dinner, the food, drinks (best Sangria in the City), service were excellent. I will certainly recommend Lula Lounge to family & friends.
This is our second time attending a birthday celebration and our waiter was superb and helpful. Ambience is fantatstic for people who love high energy and keep in mind that the music can be a bit loud so conversations are not the easiest to have but well worth it. Would definitely recommend this place to others
Good food, good service and great music.
Fantastic spot for jazz. Definitely not a quiet location but one of lively entertainment.
Cannot wait to be back
