"Their bread is still good, everything else has gone way down hill. Food was mediocre not particularly tasty. Pasta was clumped together -- inexcusable for Italian restaurant. One dish was lukewarm. Server completely unprofessional walking around in one of the dirtiest coats I have ever seen. Too bad, this used to be a place you could count on solid, if not a great meal. I fear this was our last time, at least in Walnut Creek and perhaps for chain. Again, too bad; I have enjoyed, especially with with kids over the years."

Lulu offers a seasonal Provencal menu featuring wood fired oven, rotisserie and grilled specialties. The 'family-style' cuisine is served in an impressive warehouse dining space. LuLu features an award-winning wine list and a wine bar offering over 40 wines-by-the-glass. Located in the SOMA district, just one block from the Moscone Convention Center, Lulu is the ideal spot for lunch, cocktails or a festive dinner.

"Warm, comfortable, great place for family and friends. Family style dining encourages good conversation. Food is very good, especially the daily spit roasted special dish."
