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.

    Food was fantastic. However service was very slow. They missed sauce on two of three orders of the pork chop.

    Food was very good - we tried a number of different dishes and everything was very good. Server did an excellent job of spreading delivery of the dishes so we weren’t rushed and had time to enjoy! Casual, upbeat atmosphere.

    Great spot and food. It would have been 5 stars if we were in the main part of the restaurant. We were sitting in a bit of a hallway type room which didn’t have nearly the same atmosphere or ambiance. Next time I will request the main hall.

    Disappointed this time. I’ve been many times and found the portions to be greatly reduced and the flavour just wasn’t there. Some dishes were great as usual like the hot dog but the cauliflower and fried chicken, two of my fav dishes were very underwhelming. It will be awhile before I’m back.

    Firstly I am Celiac and so much of their menu is gluten free. The ice cream cake is so good and even has a cookie crust that is celiac friendly! So much deep fried deliciousness that is celiac safe also. I have never been sick from the restaurant they are very aware. Some of the best food I’ve ever had, definitely one of my favourite restaurants in Calgary and I go often. I have not tried everything but the fried coconut squid is amazing, the flavour combinations that make up this menu are so unique, innovative and exciting. Everything I have had there has been so delicious it’s hard to make up your mind with what to eat. I also have sensory problems and at my husbands request made sure we were seated in the quietest, least busy part of the restaurant. It is very very loud but they did what they could to help me be comfortable so I could enjoy their amazing food. Also the tea is from a place Banff and it’s incredible especially the earl grey! I don’t drink alcohol and they have some delicious mocktail options! I went once for my birthday and they comp-ed my ice cream cake! Amazing food amazing service! Definitely try it out!

    We came for my birthday. All the dishes were delicious but I especially loved the coconut linguine & squid, and lamb. We loved the Asian-fusion flavours. Our server was very attentive and gave us good advice on the dishes. We will definitely return

    Had a late business meeting as their flight home was cancelled, and this was a great location for a more casual take ina. Friday night. It was a bit too loud but that’s to be expected. Al thought I forget their name, our serve was incredible.

    We ordered the Cod, warm beet salad, the linguini and two desserts.. I can't give the exact names but it was the ice cream cake and the coconut dessert. All dishes were outstandingly tasty, presented in a very professional and fancy way and the server was always making sure we have everything we need. It's a really hip and modern place in the heart of downtown. This was my second visit, looking forward to be back!
