    We eat often at L32 and usually enjoy everything about the restaurant. This was not the case this time. I made reservations well in advance for 6 of us at 6:30 pm on a Saturday night.I even checked in about 6 to let the hostess know we were there and would be in the bar with our friends. We were among the first customers to dine at Lucky's when the door opened years ago so we have always felt at home there. The hostess took us to the worst table in the restaurant..the booth in the corner by the kitchen next to the bar. When I asked for another table, I was told that there were no other tables. I asked the hostess to be sure we couldn't move and that we didnt mind waiting a few minutes, and she quickly told me it was not possible.My husband told her the table was the worst one in the restaurant and could we please move. She again said there were no other tables available for 6 people. I had to slide all the way in and somehow doing that, I snagged a brand new sweater and ruined it. There was no place for coats (even though I asked the hostess) and so we were quite crowded with coats and purses stuffed between us in the already claustrophobic corner. Needless to say, for us and our guests, it was less than pleasant dining experience even though the food and wait staff service were both good.

    The meals were very good. The kid meals were not very good. Next time we will just order from the main menu for the kids. Also, it took too long for the kids meals to come out. They should have brought those out as soon as they could.

    My boyfriend and I went to Greensboro, NC last weekend for a Garth Brooks concert last weekend and wanted to try out a local restaurant for dinner beforehand. We succeeded!! The Voodoo Pig Bread appetizer was completely amazefest! I could have happily eaten that for my meal! For main courses, I had shrimp and grits and the boy had jambalaya. Everything was phenomenal!!! Service was a little slow, but it looked like they were short staffed that night. It happens. Overall, FANTASTIC experience and a restaurant I'd HIGHLY recommend!!

    This restaurant was recommended to my husband by his coworkers. We are grateful to them for sending us to Lucky 32. The food is creatively delicious. I really appreciate the seasonal menu in addition to the regular dishes. The value of price for the food and drinks is very good. As a result, we plan to return to Lucky 32, inviting friends to dine with us, next time.

  • Most Unwelcoming Experience Ever
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/14/2014
    My friend and I had theater tickets and decided to have dinner before going. I went to Tripadviser's site with the idea we would try somewhere new, but decided to stay with tried and true Lucky 32. With the opportunity to make reservations while still on the site I decided to give Opentable a try. Which, of course proved to be the only pleasant aspect of the whole experience. This was not to be our first experience with Lucky 32. I have been going since they opened. My friend and I were there last month and although we had to wait for a table, our experience was excellent. But Friday night was like nothing I have ever experienced before. We knew we were limited on time so arrived a few minutes ahead of our reservations. Although there were several empty tables we were seated at the, hands down, worst table in the restaurant, the table next to the hostess station, close to the door on the coldest night of the season. We were not told who our server would be, nor did she give her name when she arrived at our table 10 minutes after being seated. We were at a disadvantage when it came to service because her other tables were on the other side of a high partition at our booth (out of site, out of mind). It gets worse. I ordered a roasted beet salad that I had on my previous visit, but it wasn't the same, something was missing, but what? Later that evening I checked the menu online and found they had forgotten the pecans. We were check on, by our server, once, maybe twice after our food was delivered, we had to ask a hostess to have our check brought to us, so we wouldn't be late for the show. This was, without a doubt, from the moment we walked in the door to the time we left, the coldest, and most artificial reception I have ever experienced at this restaurant. I do not choose to patronize a restaurant based on food alone, but for the total experience. Lucky 32 had been one of them, but not that night.

    This is the second occasion attending this restaurant with a group. I recommended it after attending last year. The menu has a wide range of foods to choose from. Most of all you don't have to wait an hour for your food. The off-the-wall dishes such as the butternut squash soup is great and that Voodoo Pig Bread is an experience and a great conversation piece. Even though we had a sponsor, we are looking forward to dining with you again without them. Thanks for the courteous service and prompt e-mails.

    This understated gem was a pleasure to find in the middle of "obvious". I knew that Lucky 32s had always been there, but I never knew that there was such simple elegance existed inside. The wood was wonderful and the service was great. It was a exciting to find a new (to me) place to call a dinner staple.

    I've been to Lucky 32 many times. I like their menu and that they source locally. The lat two times, I was in a group of 7 and had a center table near the entrance. I heard every single word John Denver, Harry Chapin etc sang, but I couldn't converse with my friends. I asked them 3 x to lower the volume and each time they said they would. No change! We talked to the manager. She apologized but said that the fuller the restaurant is, the more they have to put up the volume. Really?

    Seated quickly though the placed was packed. Server was prompt and initially very attentive, but tried to memorize the order and had to come back and clarify orders and then overlooked a side dish. Wife loved the Campfire Trout while I enjoyed the Grilled Chicken Breast with Goat Lady Chevre. Both were sumptious and filling when combined with the two sides per dish. However, took too long for server to bring the bill and make change, making us late for the theater engagement we had. The overall meal was great, but the pleasant experience was almost ruined when the server shorted me on my change. The receipt was not returned either. Didn't call anyone over, but took back the nice tip (20%) I was going to leave and left a smaller one.

    I decided to take a close friend to Lucky 32 as a surprise for her birthday. The lunch was a wonderful combination of delicious cuisine (southern style) in a comfortable, yet sophisticated atmosphere! Our waiter was pleasant and patient in responding to any menu questions. Although a little noisy, we had a great table and it was a truly lovely experience. My girlfriend was more than pleased about her birthday surprise.
