    There is quite a difference between eating upstairs and downstairs at this restaurant. The last two times we have eaten there we expected to eat upstairs and were told upon arrival they were having a private party there and we would have to eat downstairs . Downstairs is noisy with slow service and a bar atmosphere .

    We love going to this restaurant. It is one of our favorites. So we took some good fiends Monday night. When we arrived we were told that dining would be downstairs only. It was extremely hot day and the inside of the restaurant was also very hot. We inquired about the AC and were told it had been broken all day, but a repairman had been called and was suppose to arrive between 6-8 pm that evening. Our reservations were for 6:30pm.The AC was never repaired while we were there. Some of the patrons moved upstairs to dine because it was much cooler, but we were not offered that option. The miso sea bass and salmon were delicious, but the pork entree was so tough, it was inedible. The donuts were the best part.

    Overall it was GOOD but NOT GREAT. Service and Food was solid but for the prices they are charging I was expecting great. I ordered the $46 Wagyu NY Strip, which was lopsided so 50% of it came out Well Done. Taste was good but the cut of meet was disappointing. My wife ordered the $26 pot roast and that was the best dish we had. Our daughters ordered Parpadelle (it was good) and Sea Bass (good as well). Calamari appetizer was seasoned well but too much breading left it a bit greasy. The tuna tartare was excellent. Finally, it's the summer so seating is limited to downstairs, which is more of a bar/lounge scene. I think we will return but for happy hour or late night. We'll give it one more try.

    Went to Lurcat to celebrate my boyfriend's new job with another couple. We had a lovely evening...service was good, not too pushy, and we never felt rushed. The sliders were FANTASTIC - all of us said it might be the best we've ever had. French fries were superb and crispy. We also sampled the calamari which were light, and crisp and the accompanying sauce was perfect. The standout ,as always, were the doughnuts - get extra. Mojito was spot on. The restaurant is a bit pricey, but for special occasions is well worth it. We plan to come by again for happy hour (and more sliders!).

    Cafe Lurcat had been both excellent and consistant since it opened. The menu contains several dishes your mother made, but they make them better. There are few if any restaurants in our area with friendlier service. All in all - definately a "go back" place.

    This was our third visit. The service and ambiance in this restaurant is pleasing and relaxing, but the food inconsistent. On this visit we enjoyed appetizers and a salad. The entrees very disappointing; pork more fat than meat and undercooked, the filet came out raw inside and then was overcooked upon return. Sides are ala carte and pricey although the portion of fries was large. Since there are many other eatery options nearby we would not return here too soon.

    Enjoyed an excellent patio dinner with girlfriends. Chose based on restaurant website then received a locals suggestion as a good spot. Dined 8:30 on a Saturday and got a nice spot on the patio. Did make reservations via Open Table. Had cocktails, salads (apple & cheese was great and different) and tuna & sea bass. Sea bass was like butter. Melted on your tongue. Our local friend suggested the donuts for dessert and we had reached the evening happy hour where they were only $5 so we gave them a try. They were tasty and a big serving, took some back to the hotel for breakfast. Our favorite dining spot over 4 days.

    My wife and I have enjoyed many evenings at Cafe Lurcat. Our guests have also found it to be a very classy dining place. The food is excellent and the service is outstanding. The table spacing provides you with quite a bit of privacy. It's unfortunate that the only time that the upstairs dining room is open is during season, when you have to make reservations well in advance and the ambience is lost on so many noisy people, often ill-dressed for the occasion.

    The special was great - King Slamon - much better than a farm raised salmon- more tasty and flavorable. Drinks are generous and our service was the best. Ask for CHRISTY, a wonderful attentive waitress with many years experience. and when you get the donuts, grab them quick, for before you can turn around they seem to be gone !

    They called it some kind of chicken dish. It was full of veggies & other stuff but VERY LITTLE CHICKEN. I was extremely disappointed. Also served a large side of brussell sprouts (which I hate & didn't eat) & I found out later I could have had another choice, but the waiter never offered ANYTHING. I just got what he gave me. Overall experience was not good. However, the donuts served were GREAT.

    We went to this restaurant after reading the review in the "Best" issue of Gulfshore Life Magazine. The restaurant is well located and has a good ambience, unfortunately the food is over complicated and over expensive. the wine list is extensive and also too expensive for the quality on offer. unfortunately my dining companion was quite ill after the meal, which of course may have been coincidence. The tuna tartare was somewhat overpowered by onions which are really not needed and do not improve the flavour of sushi grade tuna and the steak tartare was simply strange both as to ingredients and texture. Our fish main courses were better and the side dish of glazed carrots with marscapone cheese was very original and tasty.

    Naples has an abundance of restaurants. The "Fifth Avenue" area has always been a hot destination for a fun evening. We have experienced some great food on Fifth Avenue and, some not so great food as well. We had heard that Cafe Lurcat was well worth trying and, our overall experience didn't disappoint. The menu and wine list were more in keeping with a "fine dining" experience, than a vibrant, tourist destination. Our server, as well as the restaurant manager, could't have been more attentive. Everything we ordered was fantastic. My wife ordered a pork tenderloin and I the Lamb chops & Osso Bucco. Our wine pairings were perfect. They have some very tasty deserts but the specialty is there mini donuts, that come out of the kitchen warm.

Decided to give it another try and were rewarded with over-the-top, great food and a lovely dining experience on the deck upstairs for out anniversary. The service was back to what we had experienced in the past. It was a lovely evening.
