Cafe Luluc has decent food, and the entree prices are very reasonable (average $15-20), but the waiters do everything they can to run up the bill. We had mussels and hummus for appetizers, both of which were so-so. Entrees for a group included lamb shanks, pork chops, and steak, all of which were good. We had banana splits for dessert which were pretty good. My biggest complaint was the waiters came back to the table every 2-3 minutes to pour more wine, and bring new wine to the table without us asking. Eventually, we just told them no more wine. Besides the prices of six bottles of wine, constantly having waiters swarming around the table made it impossible to really enjoy the dinner. Not a horrible restaurant, but with the vast selection of restaurants in Carroll Gardens, Cafe Luluc can be skipped.

my husband and i are now kicking ourselves that we've been overlooking this place for so many years. we were skeptical because the menu and the prices didn't seem to match up (reasonable prices for dishes that are normally expensive in other bistros). tried it last night and everything was stellar. even the caesar salad was unusually excellent, and that's a dish that is often overlooked in kitchens. we also had the lamb shank with wild mushroom risotto and the grilled duck breast with honey thyme polenta and sauteed spinach -- everything beautifully cooked and the flavors so well balanced. service was a little slow, but otherwise really great. i normally don't review a place until i've been there a few times, but i know we'll be going back to luluc again.

Cafe Luluc is one of our absolute favorite spots. We only travel to NY about once a year and although we now stay in Manhattan we go to Brooklyn for Luluc. The pancakes are absolutely amazing. I order them every time. They are so worth the extra-full belly. My guest adores their quiche with goat's cheese and spinach. We've always had fantastic service, waiters/waitresses, and the food is always prompt. We also appreciate the wall of magazines to choose from. This is an absolute must if you're on Smith, hold that, anywhere NEAR Brooklyn.

There wasn't anything I didn't love about Cafe Luluc. The pancakes were as amazing as the reviews say - crunchy on the outside, and super fluffy on the inside. My friends loved the french fries and the poached egg/grav lax combo. Fast, attentive service. Nice waiters. Mmm I can't wait to go back.

I live in the hood and tried pretty much every single place around and when I am unsure of where to go or what to eat, I always come back to LuLuc. It used to be between LuLuc and Patois for me but unfortunately Patois moved (to the city). LuLuc has good service, cozy backyard seating and the food is always tasty. The beet and goat cheese salad is yummy! The price is very reasonable and you can often get a table without a wait.

My boyfriend and I come here all the time. We've had brunch and dinner and have never had a bad meal. The service is always fast and friendly. I've had many things on the menu and would recommend all (esp. the fish tacos, duck, and chicken sandwich). It will continue to be one of my go to standards.
