What makes a succesful restaurant? Lulu California Bistro knows: Consistently good food and excellent service. Add in reasonable pricing and you have a winner! Perhaps the best happy hour bar menu in the Coachella Valley. There are several price fix 3 course dinner choices over the afternoon and evening hours. The menu is diverse and large. Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner... More

Had a really nice lunch with seafood chowder and salad - excellent. Friend had lobster rolls which were ok and probably better if we had not the real thing in Maine. Wait staff very attentive and helpful.

I think Don Draper would have loved this place period mid-century modern decor cool horseshoe booths in white leather. Beautiful building. Wide variety of items to choose from Breakfast Brunch lunch or dinner and it's open late.

I was there last week with clients, and we were able to get a table on short notice and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, it was excellent service (i.e. found me in the corner while video-chatting my son and brought me my much-needed beverage), helped us pick out the best selection of food for our...

After a so-so experience the last time we went back this past weekend and are glad we did. Couple of bartenders that have been there for a long time and excellent service. Food was great and it felt nice to be welcomed back here. Always great people watching from the bar. Glad to see things are good again behind the... More

I found the experience of dining at Lulu's so great I ate there three out of four nights while I stayed in Palm Springs. Extremely comfortable dining solo at the bar where the drinks and food was half price all day! Great food selection and very quick service accompanied by great cocktails all added to a fantastic experience. Love the... More

Smack in heart of downtown Palm Springs, this multi-tiered modernesque eatery gets big crowds at lunch and dinner. My light lunch was very good and nicely presented. Prices are a bit higher than average by upscale California standards, but at Lulu California Bistro, the higher tab seems well worth the price in this trendy and popular place.

We were seated quickly upstairs and our table was perfect for people watching.. Our server was friendly and excellent. The food was plentiful the wild mushroom soup was tasty and the pork chop was a large portion, but the sauce too sweet and overpowered the dish. The green beans were fresh. The Moscow mule was served in a glass instead... More
