Lively SoMa restaurant with an open kitchen & wood-burning stove offering hearty family-style eats.- Google
"Mostly good, but the true outstanding dish is the iron skillet roasted mussels."
"Great atmosphere, decor a little aged but adequate, prime rib to die for!"

Despite eating next door at Zero Zero fairly often, Lulu was never really a restaurant that caught my interest, given the pricing and average reviews. Finally coming here several weeks back for a reunion dinner with some Seattle friends, I can say that my hesitation was more or less on point. I ended up getting their ragout spaghetti, substituting out the spaghetti itself for their housemade fettuccine instead, while the other got their steak and fish, with the lot of us sharing an order of the roasted mussels. In the end, none of the entrees we ordered were particularly noteworthy: the steak lacked character, the fish was slightly overcooked, and the fettuccine was just a-okay. I've had better of everything elsewhere, and for far more affordable prices. That said, the roasted mussels were fantastic, with plenty of flavor without using the dipping butter - in fact, I preferred eating them that way! These alone, I would come back for, and give them a solid 4 for - the entrees come in more at a 2. ***Accessibility Info*** Venue - A large space with both accessible and less accessible areas, with the center of the restaurant a step or two down: I can't recall if there was a ramp going down to this area. Other than this, no real issues. Bathroom - Didn't check them out.

Nice place, nice service, ok but kind of bland food.

The biggest negative here is that you'll smell like a campfire after you leave. That's because they have a big wood-burning oven in the middle of the restaurant. You wouldn't want to go here in your clubbing clothes, then go out clubbing afterwards. Everyone would be asking you if you brought a S'More for them. That said, if you're like me, and you never go clubbing, well, this is a perfectly good place to have a nice dinner and then go home. Everything grilled is good here.

This place is definitely for the 30+ crowd. Me and my sister were probably the youngest that came in that night. I didn't feel out of place though because the servers weren't snobby at all and overall the decor was still a bit casual with yellow walls and whatnot.. I think the coolest thing about this place is that they have a huuuge rotisserie oven right in the front of the restaurant where everyone can see. There is a daily special of what's roasting that night (about $30 a plate or so..). We decided not to go that route for that night but it looked delicious and I definitely want to try it one day! We DID end up with: Wild mushroom pizza - $18 - to be honest, this pizza was delicious! I was really craving Zero Zero pizza that night, and this was on par in terms of both cost and taste/quality. Brussel sprouts - $7 - A bit small but delicious as well. Came in a small cast iron pan and cooked in buttaaaa. Calamari - $15 - we thought it was gonna be fried calamari but this also came in a small cast iron pan with potatoes and peppers. It was prooobably a bit healthier but this tasted fresh and was decent as well. OVERALL, a great place to bring a date with a dark, romantic, but casual setting. This place is actually kind of loud, but not obnoxiously so - so you can talk freely without having to worry about someone eavesdropping on you.

Food is mediocre to be nice... the whole food was raw, the pork was very salty. Waitress started good but towards the end of the dinner, while we waited 45 min for the awful fish turned into a nasty Bee.

Good food, but overpriced. You can get the same menu and food quality in some other places of the city. The place is very comfortable and beautifully decorated though, and the service is attentive and professional.

Went here with two friends when the Google IO after hours party was too crowded. Very, very nice people serving, the best Bloody Mary I've ever had and terrific food that is really reasonably prized. Will go there again tonight, to start with another Bloody Mary ;)
