    For those who want a very special occasion dinner but don't want the ridiculous prices, Cafe Lucrat offers a wonderful experience. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive, the food is great and on Wednesday you can get half price on a bottle of wine. Not to mention those little donuts you get for dessert!!!!

    This is my favorite restaurant in Naples! The food is spectacular and the ambiance is great. Have dined here many times and always come away feeling great. The wait staff is exceptional; all the plates are set down at the same time & removed after everyone is finished eating. And of course, the donuts are delicious. Definitely a restaurant to return to often!

    Dined on 11/8/2014
    This has long been a favorite of ours when visiting Naples. I have never tried anything else on the menu because the sea bass AND the roasted cauliflower simply can not be improved upon for my perfect meal. And top that off with warm mini sugared doughnuts for dessert- SO GOOD! The decor is beautiful- very chic! Service is very good. The only downside was that the upstairs dining area was EXTREMELY loud. But our group of six had a group of ten right behind us- Yikes! But we'll always go back for the food!

    Always good service - very attentive waiters and assistance. My favorite is CHRISSY who has been there 8 years and is a professional. The food is always god with enough choices in any category you might be in the mood for. Vegtables come out tender and cooked propery, never soggy or overcooked. Must try - if dining, sit upstairs, if casual sit downstairs...

    We have been there several times, twice with different out of town guests, and has been excellent experience every time! Ambience great, both indoors and out. Food is excellent - the apple, cheese, chive salad - WOW! And the warm doughnuts … perfect end to the meal! Service has also been outstanding! Looking forward to more great dinners at Cafe Lurcat!

    Great food. Excellent service. We enjoyed Sea Bass Miso. And NY steak. Sides of Caramelized Brussels Sprouts. And wild Mushrooms as our favorite dishes. We come from a very successful Restaurant Family from New York City and New Jersey and are very particular to have the freshest and finest ingredients and. We dine here almost weekly in the winter months. A little pricey. But worth it.And always consistent

    Halloween night on 5th Avenue, with all of its inherent craziness had the potential to be a disastrous night for a birthday dinner with friends, but Cafe Lurcat made sure that did not happen! Our reserved table was not quite ready at 7:45, so the maitre d, (who was fabulous!) seated us at a high top between the bar and restaurant overlooking the street and, as he predicted, it was such a perfect spot that we had no interest in moving to our table when it was ready a few minutes later. Our server was great--attentive and efficient and our food was delicious. Everyone at the table ordered a different entree and they were all delightful, as were the side dishes of brussel sprouts and roasted broccoli! We will all definitely be back!!

    Cafe Lurcat has always been a fine quality restaurant. But while dining there on Halloween we experienced a new menu that was both creative and unique. They featured locally sourced items in a column, traditional offerings in a column and then French inspired items in a third column. The food was just fantastic. This place only gets better and better.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/31/2014
    We had reserved a table for a specific time and requested an outside table downstairs. Reservations made through Open Table do not permit the restaurant to confirm or deny requests of that sort. It turns out that all the downstairs tables and the outside upstairs tables were already reserved but we did not find that out until we arrived at the restaurant. They were apologetic and we did receive the usual great food and service. It would be good if that problem with OpenTable could be fixed.

    My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. We sat on the first floor outdoor terrace on a beautiful evening. My husband gave high praise for his salmon dish. I couldn't wait to dig into my pot roast just from the smell when it was spooned from the pot onto my plate. The taste matched the smell and then some! The donuts for dessert were a delicious culmination of a delightful evening.

    I ordered the chicken and thought it too dry -- just casually mentioned it to Joe (our server) guess he spoke to the kitchen and I think they agreed that is was too dry -- they took it off our bill which was way over the top -- too nice -- everyone else loved what they had -- I can't wait to come back -- it's a delightful spot --

    A portion of the menu focused (temporarily) on French items - those were tasty. The chicken and the quail. The longstanding apple-cheese-chive salad was tasty, but had mostly apple and little cheese. Also tasty is the ginger fried rice/shrimp/egg starter. Service was spotty. Nice place to dine outdoors overlooking Fifth Ave. Dessert donuts always delicious. Get a half order.

    We are frequent visitors anytime we come to Naples. This time we had our 2 grandchildren with us (4 1/2 and 2 1/2). We were sitting outside, it was fine. The Location ist not specialized in childred (they do not have any childre menu) but it does not matter at all; chicken was split and they even received some pencils and paper to draw. Never the less, next time we will come without children again.
