    The steaks here are excellent - good taste, well prepared and choice of sauce. The downside is the size and decor. It has a bistro atmosphere and not that of a steak house.It needs to be clubbier and more comfortable and would take of. The menu is very limited, which is fine for this tiny place.our server was cheerful and excellent.

    This was our first visit to Luke Palladino's Steak and Seafood. We have been to the Seasonal Italian. It's so hard to get into these places during the summer. We love both places. There really are not a lot of offerings in the seafood department, but we were there for the steak anyway. Three of us got the 16 oz. ribeye and one got the filet. This was the best ribeye I've tasted in quite some time. It was cooked perfectly and had a wonderful flavor. The prices were very reasonable and even lower than your typical steakhouse (although I am not sure it qualifies as such). The sides that were ordered were also great, maybe with the exception of the onion rings which we found to be waaaay too salty. The fact that it's a byob only makes it a better deal. Ordered ice cream for dessert. Very smooth and tasty. Be warned though. It is very small quarters and on the loud side. You look into the kitchen. Again, none of this bothered us and kind of added to the atmosphere which was probably their goal. Definitely recommend! Our server was Melissa and she was terrific.

    Very disappointed since the restaurant has changed to steak and seafood. Before this menu very innovative and lots of choices-not now. We split steak -not juicy- not hot -just so so. (They cut our steak - we prefer to cut our own) baked or mash-no spectacular salads. The corn was great , the octopus was great and the cheese cake was very good. No, won't return and won't recommend them. Service was very good however no one there.

    The menu is smaller than it used to be but that's not a detraction by any metric. We enjoy the Porterhouse for 2, Pierogies Appt and creamed spinach side. Special mention to the Onion Rings, most unique I ever had. Excellent.

    This is the Seafood/Steakhouse that you do not need to go to. First, there was almost no seafood on the menu. There was only one seafood entrée to choose from and two appetizers. I got a Delmonico special that was completely unmemorable. Thin and without any browning on the outside. My guess was that because it was so thin, that it could only be briefly cooked to get the correct internal temperature. My dinner companion got the scallops which were mushy. That raised another issue, the food seasoning was highly inconsistent. Onion rings had much too much salt, but scallops were way under seasoned. The service was good and attentive.

    promptly seated for our 8 PM open table reservation. The room was uncomfortably warm but improved as the evening went on. small room with seating for 40 or so was a little tight but cozy. for apps my wife had raw oysters on the half shell and I had oysters casino. Very good. my wife enjoyed her red grouper special. The New York strip which I ordered and the waitress recommended had a large vein running through it. very tough for the knife to cut. The waitress gladly removed the entrée I requested the small fillet mignon it was cooked just right and delicious but my wife ate her entrée alone which took away from our experience a little bit. I don't eat steak often so I was look really looking forward to this. hope to try again soon.

    We were so sad the Italian restaurant moved as we love this original spot. Did not really like the new place. This however was fabulous! Luke was there cooking which was great. Love the atmosphere. Great people sitting around us. Perfect steak! Loved the anti wedge salad and the sides. Cannot wait to return!

    I call this "miracle in a strip mall." Great food in a totally unexpected location. The tomato/onion salad & crab bisque were amazing. The steaks were amazing. The wild mushroom side was to die for. My lobster could have been cooked 30 seconds less but I can't really fuss over that. Overall very enjoyable.

    The 'real' potato skins were awesome. Highly recommended. The stuffed poached lobster was good but not $55 good. The Kobe rib eye cap was also very good and cooked perfectly. The limoncello pound cake was above average and the turtle cheesecake was fair to good. Not a bad meal by any stretch but not as good as Emeril's Chop House or any of the premium chains but not a bad choice if you're in the area. Worth while visiting just for the potato skins.

    This was our third time at LP Steak in the last year. Each time as good as the last. For our most recent visit, we had the Porterhouse for two. It was cooked as ordered and served already cut off the t-bone. We also got potato wedges and substituted a vegetable for a second potato offering for a $4 upcharge. The app came out quickly and hot. We had calimari. It was lightly fried, tender, and came with a zingy aioli. We shared the wedge salad, which came with bacon and candied walnuts, good combination of sweet and savory! To no fault of the restaurant, other than they took their reservation, there was a group that was obnoxiously loud. Because of the small space and proximity to other tables, it can be loud depending on the crowd.

    We frequent The Capital Grill in Philadelphia during the winter months and my husband and our friends agree, that Luke Palladino steaks are equally as delicious, juicy, tasty and tender !!! We can also say that we have a lot more fun, at LP Steaks! The atmosphere and service is outstanding! Fred, our waiter gives everyone impeccable service! We are so-----looking forward to the opening of Luke's restaurant in Philadelphia in November! Thank you for another fantastic meal at Luke Palladino's!

    The tiny restaurant is located in a very unassuming strip center on the mainland. The place is nothing to speak of, but the food very good. My wife and I are on crazy diet, so we didn't get to try a number of items I normally would. We stuck to the somewhat blander looking dishes. N I had the filet and my wife the salmon. Both were very good. We also started with oysters which were also good. I would recommend this place just to give yourself variety for the summer, but I wouldn't go out of my way to come here. It needs to relocate to really be a player in this market.

    We treated ourselves for my Birthday. We started with the Oysters Casino (which were very different from Clams Casino) then we each had the Anti Wedge Salad (Bib Lettuces instead of Iceberg and more) it was excellent. Then we shared the 3lb Porterhouse Steak and it was grilled perfectly! We will be back.

    I was really anticipating some GREAT food/haute cuisine. But, what we ate was OK to Good food, while paying for what should have been EXCELLENT food, $150 for four people without alchohol?! I'm not saying I have a problem paying this kind of price - it just comes with high expectation. While we left full, our taste buds weren't savoring a flavor to linger. Presentation was OK but not stellar. Sadly we were disappointed. Besides this - our waitress kept slamming/dropping our dishes on the table. Very annoying. I MIGHT go back and try it again but no promises. I won't recommend this place until I have a better experience.

    Our first visit to LP. We drove into the parking lot and almost turned around. Glad we didn't. Inside was a cozy, well decorated space with a friendly staff. The steaks were as good as any high end steakhouse, we've been to many. I had the special, surf & turf, whole 1 lb lobster and a strip steak. My date had the filet mignon and the anti-wedge salad. Both excellent. The homemade biscuits and black garlic butter an additional surprise. This place is BYO and soft drinks are limited, but did not cause us a problem.

    Sean (the chef de cuisine) makes everything that comes out of that kitchen fabulous. The potato skins are the stuff of fantasies. The steak in presentation and taste rivals that of the finest upscale steakhouses without the high end price tag.
