We had a lovely time for Mother'sWe had a lovely time for Mother's Day. Our waitress was fabulous, considering I knocked over drink glasses - twice! The busboys were on top of it! Food was very good, it might be a bit noisy if you have a problem hearing, but when I requested a quiet corner, they gave us the quietest one they had. I would definitely recommend Luckys. I hear the dinner menu is pricey, but the brunch was very reasonable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe usual 5 stars. We're hereThe usual 5 stars. We're here once a week; this time in the bar with family and a 15 month old. Guy did his usual great service job in making sure dinner went smooth. Recommend the chopped salad, peppered filet, hash browns and turtle sunday. My wife thinks the abalone is the best in Santa Barbara. Nice wine selection, and the bar knows how to make a drink!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMenuAbsolutely fabulous menu wonderful food and service. Matzah Ball soup just like Mother's
Much to noisy hard to talk . Could have been crowd there . Expensive but well worth it.
Will definitely try again and recomend to friends but tell them it is not quiet and romantic.
Large portions most difficult thing was deciding which of all wonderful choices to select5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband & I were celebratingMy husband & I were celebrating a special occasion at Lucky's. it was the perfect spot. The ambiance was inviting, comfy, quiet and romantic. Our server was fantastic--very knowledgeable, highly attentive and very friendly. The food was amazing. I highly recommend the french onion soup & petite filet mignon with bernaise sauce. My husband truly enjoyed their delectable bone in rib eye steak. We look forward to coming back soon and trying some of their other menu items.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ate in the bar area, whichWe ate in the bar area, which was a fun vibe on an otherwise slow night. Food and service... excellent! Highly recommend.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, Lucky's was great!As always, Lucky's was great! Service, food, atmosphere all excellent. Keep up the great work.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWorld's Best Crab CakesLets jus start with the fact that we have found the World's Best Crab Cakes. My wife is a serious crab cake lover, and without exageration, neither of us have ever had better. Tons of crab, cooked perfectly. All the food was cooked to perfection, including my grass fed filet. And, our server was excellent. The staff we encountered were friendly and professional. We've driven by it many times not noticing it, but thanks to OT, we've found a new favorite for our trips to Santa Barbara/Montecito. Even if it's just a visit to the bar for crab cakes and a drink, I highly recommend Lucky's. You will not be dissappointed4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLucky's: A True Montecito Gem!The food was excellent, tasty, and well prepared; the presentation was also very well done.
The ambiance was warm and friendly; the walls of the restaurant were covered with classic photos of old Hollywood legends including movie stars, commedians, musicians and other famous celebrities. And the wine list was phenomenal, with a great selection of domestic and foreign wines!
The wait staff at Lucky's were extremely attentive to details, very helpful and prompt!
They may us feel right at home; we will be back to visit Lucky's again very soon!!!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOn a Monday night--Lucky'sOn a Monday night--Lucky's was jumping. Steaks were, as expected, excellent. But so was the chicken pot pie, Brussels sprouts, out of this world artichoke hearts, and hash browns with Gruyere. We were lucky enough to enjoy farm raised abalone appetizers. We remember why everybody used to love the delicacy. Lucky's is pricey. You get what you pay for.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite in MontecitoI often visit from the east coast, and love the ambiance of Lucky's. I love the photos of all my favorite movies stars from the 40's and 50's. I love the chic decor, black and white, cool and crisp and sleek. One expects Humphrey Bogart, Frank Sinatra or Clark Gable to pop up at the next table.
It was Sunday night and we had the Sunday special rib roast and Yorkshire pudding. A side order of thin crispy onion rings. Pretty great plate on a white tablecloth heaped with feather-light rings. And good salads too.
Our entrees which came a bit too rare, were graciously returned to the kitchen and came back quickly cooked to perfection.
Handsome, genial waiter, and efficient valet parking. I love this place.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMHere for my daughter's birthday.Here for my daughter's birthday. Just wonderful and excellent food, wonderful service.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMVery old school, classic steakhouseVery old school, classic steakhouse. Great quality beef, great service. Will be back!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMRobert's the Best!Lucky's is a constant and that's a very good thing. The Rumanian Steak is the only one on the menu that's marinated and it's fantastic. Order charred on the outside and medium on the inside.
Lucky's is one of those places that employs professional servers and Robert is no exception. Friendly, professional and courteous, a winning combo. There are lots of wonderful eateries in the area but it's difficult to go elsewhere when you know what you're going to get at Lucky's.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI had appetizers a coupleI had appetizers a couple of months ago on another short trip to Santa Barbara from LA and looked forward to dining with my husband when he an I traveled north. Service was great, appetizers and salad outstanding. I ordered Lamb and mu husband the special which was albacore.
He felt there was too much butter and my lamb was just OK. Not the great flavor that I was expecting. The atmosphere is beautiful and I' m glad we went but we both were dissapointed3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAte at the Bar. Service wasAte at the Bar. Service was outstanding
