I would go to an event there but I wasn’t fond of the menu and it didn’t really cater to those who must follow a particular diet
I went here for my anniversary on Saturday and I had the best time ever, the food was amazing, the servers were so attentive and sweet , and place was stunning and the music was probably the best part. I felt like I was waking up Sunday morning to my mom cleaning the house to Spanish music, I felt like I was home. I’m coming back soon and bringing my huge family along.
My nephew visiting from Ecuador. Wanted him to experience the energy of live Latin music and the dancing. LuLa did not disappoint.
The best part about Lula is the atmosphere. It's full tilt good vibes. Friday nights are well structured to engage the guests. Food is good, but the live band is on a whole other level. Sound and dance washes all worries away. It would be hard to remember a sour day by the time those trumpets get going.
Everybody is dancing....I don't dance, but it's contagious. First time since high school. Nobody could care less. Everybody was dancing!!
Patsy cline tribute
Excellent show. Amazing group of talents to raise the voice of Patsy Cline in tribute. It will definitely become an annual MUST for my entertainment dollars.
We come to Lula Lounge many times, many of our musician friends perform there. Staff, everyone is exceptionally efficient, friendly, courteous, and accommodating. The Venue itself is also well laid out, great sound and food. Thanks for all they do for the city of Toronto.
I will not come back. Ever. Music was fantastic, server was sweet, but my friend and I felt swarmed by men, and I mean that in a very unpleasant way. Grabbed, groped and invaded, we had to sneak out. Not the type of place for ladies who have boundaries. Too bad, I just wanted to dance and enjoy the live music.
Thank you for the review. We were very concerned to read about your experience at Lula Lounge. Would you be willing to have a quick phone conversation with Tracy and Nicole, two of our managers? We have recently developed an Anti-Harassment policy at Lula Lounge that is intended to protect staff and clients. We take seriously our responsibility to foster an environment in which everyone feels safe. It would help us to hear more about what you experienced so that we can work to prevent issues
Beautiful location. Great food. Great music BUT the air conditioning blew right on our table the whole night so we we’re freezing the whole night, wasn’t too happy about that.
We had a wonderful dinner with a band a workshop salsa beginners and dancing with another band playing. We had a great time at Lula Lounge and we will be back on or next visit to Toronto all the way from Holland. G & R , Amsterdam
Always a great time!
The ‘boy band’ salsa entertainment stunk. Those guys need work. Other than that we loved the overall vibe and dancing.
Great night with my wife. Great service and relaxed atmosphere. Great dancing and excellent band.
Had my daughters birthday celebration and all guests were very happy with the experience
Service was great! Food was mediocre other than the steak which was $11 above the $59 pp charge. The pork shoulder was only half edible since the other half was literally all fat. The food also came luke warm to cold. Noise level during dinner was too loud. While we danced hearing loud music was great but not while eating! The waitress was very kind and somewhat efficient when she wasnt sitting down at the back booth with other people. The Drey Dance instructor and live band afterwards were excellent. I do feel the price is not worth the dinner experience. I would NOT recommend coming for dinner but rather spend $15 cover for the live music!
Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We’ll take note of your comments and go over them with our team. In general we get great reviews for the food but there is always room for improvement! We are really glad to hear that you enjoyed the band Havana Ventu! Thank you again.
What an amazing show. Such a great space, and the food was delicious!
Great evening. Speaker Slam is amazing. It is so inspiring.
A friend recommended the place and we were glad we went! The food was mediocre overall the best for us was the cake and pork shoulder. Great place for birthdays or a night out dancing. Highlight was definitely the live music.
The atmosphere here is amazing! I loved every minute of it. I ordered the jerk chicken dish as my entree and it was delicious. My partner enjoyed their steak! Will definitely be back.
Came here with high expectations, me and my wife were celebrating our anniversary she is of Spanish background and thought it would be a fun night dinner and dancing. The drinks were good but the food was confusing. For a Spanish/ Cuban style place I thought the food would be more inspired by it but it really isn't , which would be okay if it wasn't so over priced. She waitress was very nice and took care of us.
Service tool was deceiving... we tried to reserve the table thinking we will do a la carte for drinks and snacks (as we had reservation for dinner already at a fine dining restaurant to celebrate my wife’s birthday, to have dinner well before dancing) and thought we may have to pay the cover extra for dancing... but after confirmation, tool tells us we reserved for fixed menu for a cover of $59, which should have been disclosed before confirming the booking (tool asked for a credit card), and the tool did not let us cancel the online booking (and the restaurant was not going to open until the evening of reservation). So we decided to just go, and cancel our other dinner reservation.
We arrived - ambience was good and music was nice (volume was a little too loud for our comfort and the speakers were not of best quality), but the place was very over crowded. Dance classes were pointless as we were hardly able to move around or see the instructor on the stage from where we were). After the classes more people joined in to dance, and it literally became a sweat fest), so we decided to just go sit at out table. Now food - for a fixed menu, the selection was very limited, and the food was decent but not great. Overall, it was not the worst experience, but we will not return here for dinner. We will just go for dancing on a non crowded day, since this is the only salsa club we know of in town.
I just did not liked that my table was not in the main event room. i was put in a corner with to party events on it, so was too loud and I did not enjoy my dinner as I would like to
Thank you for everything!! The night was perfect, food was amazing, service fantastic, dance lesson was incredible!! The only complaint I have is that the music stopped!!
The Manager and waiter were great! The food was delicious. The Jazz FM Youth Band and singer were a joy to listen to and Adam James was amazing! We look forward to other concerts at Lula's.
Awesome evening of Latin nightlife.
Lula lounge is a great Venue and the service was fantastic dispute being a sold out show. The food and drinks came fast however the quality was average. It wasn’t bad by any means, and probably on par with prices in Toronto, but it did feel expensive for what we got. I was underwhelmed with the food & drink but would defiantly return due to the amazing performances and service. Our table couldn’t see the show but we made a same day change to the group number so perhaps that’s why.
I was extremely disappointed in the food service and communication by the staff. We arrived for an 8:15pm seating. There were 2 people who greet you who don't talk to each other. I arrived and told the first person that I had a reservation and she took our money. I paid 40 per person and was confused why I didn't get the discounted $30 dollar per person cover. I booked the table in advance and put my credit card down. So I was told that there are 2 places on the internet you need to book both tickets and a dinner reservation. Clearly, I did not see this on the website. I assume that if you book for 2 people a dinner reservation and put down your credit card you would think the tickets would have been purchased at the same time. This is not the case.
The second person then showed us to a table near the back of the venue. We then ordered appetizers and before they came I got a phone call on my cell from a person at the restaurant asking if we were still coming. I said we were already seated in the restaurant. Turns out she was the second person who seated us. I went to the front and she then moved us to a great table at the front. At our new table our original server came by and said he needed to settle up. He never came back. At 8:45 our new waitress came by and said she would include the old charges on her bill and asked if we were ready for our main course. We ordered and 5 minutes later the server came back and told us the kitchen had closed and there was nothing we could have, but for our trouble she would bring a desert. I ordered 2 items because there were 2 of us and she said "no you are only allowed 1". So I ordered 1. When it came it was the wrong desert. We had purposely not eaten since lunch and were starving thru the show.
What venue in the city seats dinner guests at 8:15 and closes their kitchen at 8:45? Unbelievable.
Wasnt keen on coming here but it was my wife's birthday (happy wife happy life :) ) and she really wanted to go. We ended up having a lot of fun and the food was way better than I expected (get the jerk chicken and ask for hot sauce)
Would recommend to couple and or groups of friends looking for a fun night out.
Wonderful atmosphere! Great variety of people and very friendly with each other like we’ve met before.
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!
