- Must gotimetodineDined on 11/14/2014It had been years since we enjoyed ourselves at Lucias -- so happy to see it is still delivering top notch food options and service. Thank you!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tarnished GemOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 11/14/2014We have always had very special feelings towards Lucia's and always a great experience there, but last Saturday was a complete disappointment. My soup was very bland - I added salt and I never add salt, my brussel spouts were not cooked though and my entree was just okay. My husband said the exact same things.
- The BestHeymanDined on 11/2/2014Never disappoints. Simply fresh food, prepared and served perfectly, always a sure bet for a great dining experience.Special Features:
- always a treatLisaDined on 11/1/2014We have been coming here for years and years for special occasions - anniversaries, birth days. Every meal has been a delight. The restaurant is intimate and cozy, the food delicious, and all reasonable. Living in south Minneapolis, it is a treat to not have to venture too far for a memorable night.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not bad, not greatPeepsVIPDined on 10/30/2014I have been here many times over the years, and this time it was very plain. Food was uninspired and noise was over-the-top. I think this restaurant may be resting on it's laurels.I would recommend this to a friend.
- foodiegirlDined on 10/25/2014As usual, we had a wonderful meal served by well-trained servers. And the flowers on the bar were seasonal and brilliant in hue.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

They had a special table set aside, and greeted us with a congratulations upon arrival for our reservation. The menu is limited, but very thoughtful in is composition, using local ingredients where appropriate and paying innovative homage to great classics such as Arctic Char (serving with mustard infused wild rice) and really playful pork loin with attached pork belly finished with seasonal root vegetables.Special Features:

But everything is well-prepared, interesting, tasty, and very graciously served. Highly recommend! It's our go-to restaurant for special meals and occasions.Special Features:

- Delicious and Nutritious!louiseinMSPVIPDined on 9/10/2014This is a beautiful restaurant that kept a lot of the old features of the building while updating for current needs. For example, with high pressed-metal ceilings, the interior could have been very noisy, but the panels suspended from it keeps conversations quieter. The food is delicious and nicely presented. We tried the vegetarian option, because it sounded delicious, and the bison entree. Great flavors and textures. The leek soup was SOOOO good! Our server was on his game, attentive, friendly and fun. And he knew the menu and gave great suggestions. We will be back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious foodImpresarioVIPDined on 9/9/2014Totally seasonal, a roasted corn fritata that I am still thinking about. My guest enjoyed the BLT and said it was equally delicious.Special Features:
- TimeoutFromTheKitchenDined on 9/5/2014The staff were attentive and knowledgable. I was there with someone I had not seen in a few years, and they were respectful of our conversation, and not intrusive in any way. Nice atmosphere. Our meal was delicious and represented what is in season!Special Features:
- MacoopMACOOPDined on 9/2/2014Yesterday was my first visit in a few years. Every dining experience is positively remarkable. The preparation & choices of dishes never falter.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- My honest favorite!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/31/2014Lucias is my favorite restaurant ever, I've never been disapointed. Every meal has been a gem. It changes weekly, so I can't recommend anything, but everything is great!Special Features:
- Quality, creativity, reliabilitylacosechaVIPDined on 8/31/2014Another excellent meal for five with high quality ingredients and creativity that we have become accustomed to expect here. The portions are just right. The sparkling wine was very good as well. The service was (again) just ok - one wrong dessert (which we ate anyway, because it was very good) and frequent reminders to refill water and coffee. (The last time we ate brunch, the server spilled the sparkling wine on one of the quests:)). These are small inconveniences compared with the central focus around the food and pleasant atmosphere. We'll definitely be back:)Special Features:
- oktheatreguyVIPDined on 8/17/2014Although nothing was wrong with this place, nothing about it makes it particularly special either. I was surprised it is so highly rated by Zagat.
- Ordinary food prepared well2fordinnerDined on 8/16/2014The food was well-prepared, but not exceptional. Very high quality ingredients, but assembled in what seemed a very ordinary fashion.
- Amazingaaron731Dined on 8/16/2014The food options here are amazing. All local and organic. Terrific date night for me and my wife. Go... You will not be disappointed.Special Features:

- Never disappoints!SureshotDined on 7/30/2014Although 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.Special Features:
- brunchandlunchanytimeDined on 7/29/2014parking is always a problem. Sidewalk Tables are on top of each other...not comfortable.Special Features:
