Diner Reviews
  • "Although nothing was wrong with this place, nothing about it makes it particularly special either. I was surprised it is so highly rated by Zagat."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The food was well-prepared, but not exceptional. Very high quality ingredients, but assembled in what seemed a very ordinary fashion."
    Dined on 8/16/2014

    Dined on 8/15/2014

    Dined on 8/10/2014

I have the fortunes of eating in big cities all over the world and this ranks top 5..... a mix of outstanding on all fronts... will go again on my next visit to MPS."
    Dined on 8/8/2014

    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "I've been having lunch with a friend at Lucia's regularly for many years. How many places maintain their fabulous food, pleasant atmosphere, and personal service over 20+ years? The menu changes weekly providing interest for regulars and their dessert tray is always beautiful, creative, and tempting!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Consistently very good food with a frequently refreshed menu. Charming, relaxed ambience. Always a reliable, excellent experience."

    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Excellent quality ingredients and thoughtfully prepared food."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Although the tables for four are small, the menu small and the noise level usually very high one can always depend on getting a good meal here. This time, perhaps because there were quite a few diners out of doors and was early on a weekday evening, the noise level was low enough that we could hear each other talk across the table."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "parking is always a problem. Sidewalk Tables are on top of each other...not comfortable."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Overall it was a good experience with the 2 exceptions. Service was a but slow and parking was a bear. Had to wait a very long time for a spot and hard to get in and out of lot"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Our dinner experience was absolutely perfect...the wine, salads, entrees and dessert were perfect."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "first time there and although not a lot of selections, the choices were excellent and it is easy to find something great. Only issue, don't like to pay for bread and olive oil. Work it into the price somehow - probably won't go back becuase of that. for $200 bux for a 4 top, you should get your bread included!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We were under the impression that this restaurant was participating in restaurant week. Our email confirmation even told us they were participating. When we got there they had no idea what we were talking about and were told they were not participating in the restaurant week. The manager was rude and would not help us out in anyway or give us any special break. We walked out."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The roasted tomato soup is one of the best dishes I've ever had. The waitress's recommendation on wine was perfect. It was a lovely dinner."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We had one of the best meals we've had in a long time at Lucia's. Both the Chicken and fish entrees were delish and the salads were great-the kitchen split our meals as we like to share everything and they did so happily and with no attitude! Dessert was yummmy. 5 stars!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "I always enjoy my experience at Lucia's. I made reservations for dinner for myself and three out of town guests. We shared the featured flat bread and charcuterie small plates which were delicious. The Halibut, Chicken, and Zucchini pancake entrees were all excellent."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We always wonder why we wait so long to go back to Lucia's for lunch. We have never been disappointed and always delighted by the menu choices, the service and especially the food. We took an out-of-town foodie friend, and she also raved about Lucia's."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Good deal on Sunday -- $15 on select wine bottles. Also get happy hour deals after 9PM which gets some food so can do quite well for under $50 for two. They also have large plates which looked good but I stuck with the tapas."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We have been to Lucia's every time we have been in Minneapolis, and it never fails. One time, we went there instead of a restaurant on the other side of the river. We would have been on the I-35 bridge just as it fell; so Lucia's will always be special to us. The clientele helps make it special too, full of life."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Everything, from the bread to the desserts, was excellent. The bread is so good that it's worth a visit by itself. I had the most delicious steak I've ever eaten. My dining companions enjoyed the asparagus tart and the chicken with nectarines. The chocolate semifreddo and rhubarb cake were wonderful. Service was attentive and knowledgeable. We'll be back."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Fresh food, inspiring and creative dishes for foodies ...great wine and excellent service. Truly a gem."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Food quality needs attention. Group of 6, no one raved about their dinner. Two in group broke teeth on the bread, no kidding! Seared tuna was not the quality of tuna that I recently had at Oceanaire, as Lucia's was tough to cut, I had to ask for a steak knife! Will delete this place from my favorite list."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Loved the menu, ambiance, authenticity. Randomly selected based on Open Table reviews for anniversary dinner. The weekly changing menu is a fabulous concept, as is the fluid wine list. Locally sourced, they prepare perhaps the best steak I've ever had. Others say it they can make it melt in your mouth. This is the only place that's actually achieved the feat. And the Yellow tail was fabulous too. Would've recommended it yesterday if I could have. But I didn't know of Lucia's awesomeness until them. Wow. You won't be disappointed."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "We made reservations for a Sundat evening, unaware that the Uptown area was clogged with a "food-truck rally" of some sort. Despite the crowds on the streets (and the parking made especially challenging, Lucia's was relaxing and rewarding. The food is consistently good and the service friendly, as always. I'm happy that there are dependably excellent places, like Lucia's, in the Twin Cities."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Warmly greeted and ushered out of the rain, we were seated by the window and treated to the superb food and service we'd eagerly expected. After a leisurely conversation, our experience was topped off by astoundingly delicious desert and coffee. We then traversed to "Lucia's to Go" to stock up for the coming day. There we found breakfast available all day long, plus pastries, breads and many prepared foods! We could have simply stayed overnight, but alas, Lucia's is not an inn. Taking home some delicacies, we'll return for picnic supplies another day."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Great flavors! The food was prompt and it was delicious."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "we love Lucia's. staff is the best. we had a reservation & we were seated at a great window table. server, who has been at lucia's forever was not up to standard ..just wasn't very attentive at all. small plate pizza was the best..sea bass entree was the worst for both of us..dry & no taste. my husband commented..that was our worst meat ever at lucia's.."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Some of the best food in the TC, much of it seasonal and locally sourced. Extremely high quality ingredients and fantastically prepared. Relaxed atmosphere and great low key ambience."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "This continues to be our favorite spot for special occasions. The food is so well done, and beautifully presented. The noise level is low enough that you can hear your own conversation. The desserts are to die for! Always a pleasure!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We had a wonderful Father's Day brunch. Popovers were amazing! We loved the french omelette with pulled pork. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We love the gentle European feel that's relaxed yet elegant. The food choices are always creative and the tastes first rate. A friendly place for foodies where people are knowledgeable but not stuffy. Locally grown, organic and fabulous!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This was a special goodbye dinner with family as we are moving across the country. Lucia decided to do just small plates. We weren't too happy, but then all of the small plates we tried were incredibly slow getting out and fair tasting. The waitperson said they chose small plates because of the bike race. I wish they had called and told me. Frankly, we would have been fine if the small plates were delicious. Not a good evening at Lucia's."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "It was a nice place. The food was good but was a bit overpriced."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Having not seen our college friends since March, we had a lot of catching up. Our server caught the vibe and left us alone. We never felt rushed -- even ordering drinks was paced perfectly. The food was perfect (always is at Lucia's) - however, the service made the evening A+."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Lucia's is a gem. Run don't walk there. You won't be disappointed!"
