We'll be back!
Great meal at Lucien. Ever since Bistro 990 closed we've been looking for a great French resto. Service was outstanding. We'll be back!! Four of us ate there and we all loved each item we ordered: tuna appetizer was fantastic. Grilled arctic char was great...a friend had the deer tartare (if you like deer meat you will enjoy this dish). Great job Lucien!

Went here before seeing a play, and had a fantastic meal. Delicious pasta, perfectly cooked fish and a decadent cheesecake to finish. Looking forward to my next visit

Great night out!
Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. For our starter we shared the Red Beet Salad with candied citrus, organic greens chilled vinaigrette, beet cedar meringue that was amazing. Both our entrees tasted great, some truly unique flavour’s going one. The Pan Roasted Perth County Pork served with Buckwheat pappardelle, golden beets sauerkraut, horseradish jus was super and the Cumbrae's Angus Beef Striploin Pomme Sautee, button mushroom parsley emulsion, sauce Diane was yummy. We shared the Buckwheat Roulade Walnut praline, sweet potato ice cream maple syrup, whipped bacon for desert; what can I say other than wow!
We will be back!

The food and service were
The food and service were excellent. Choices are interesting and flavorful, and make each course strong. The knowledgeable staff keep your water glasses full without asking and give great suggestions on dishes to try. The only downside was the tables were stacked in tightly, so we felt like we were dining with the strangers next to us.

A very enjoyable evening at Lucien with out of town guests. All the dishes we ordered were very good, though I had a momentary worry that the menu was not very large. The wine list was well chosen for our pallette, and complimented the food very well. Overall most enjoyable!

Loved the food and the service was excellent. Downside was the restaurant was cold and even though we asked for the ac to be switched off they would only leave if off for short periods.
This aside the food deserves a busier restaurant.

I love Lucien
We've been more than a few times and I love their food, wine list, service and the overall sense of "dining-out." I find the service impeccable - attentive, knowledgeable and friendly - no attitude here. We have been so pleased over the years that we had our office seasonal party for 35 people and again we were delighted with ... everything. A wonderful place ... do put Lucien in your plans.

First the there. Appreciated the preferred seating as requesting in our notes to the restaurant. Service was warm and attentive. Both fish mains were delicious. Venison tartare was amazing! Side veggies were ordered off-menu and were presented with the most care and attention than any other restaurant we've ever been to. We will definitely be back again.

Very good lunch
My husband works close to Lucien so we met for lunch last week - it was excellent.
I used the name Luddite because I don't often put my opinion out there but the lunch was so good I am this time.

I dined at Lucien during Lunch on a busy Thursday. There was a Summerlicious promotion going on and for $20 we each received our choice of appetizer, entree and dessert. It was a wonderful meal.

First time to Lucien
My friend and I went to Lucien for Summerlicious. A friend recommended this restaurant to me.
We had a early dinner on a Friday night. I started off with the chilled cantelope soup with house cured pork and garnished with grissini. My main was a Cumbrian farms marinated beef brisket with green beans and almond crumble. This was prepared differently, it was a little on the sweet side to my likeing. Presentation was beautiful. I highly recommend the house made tofu, flavoured with almond milk and fresh berries, lemon sorbet and garnished with local mint. I would return to Lucien just for the dessert.

Really stellar menu for the price that we were paying at Summerlicious. Waiter was friendly but a bit overbearing at times.

Tops in Toronto
The food at Lucien was spectacular. Best fish in years....very subtle and interesting flavors. Quite expensive but worth the experience. Remaining food was also very good. We will return. Service was also excellent.

I came to Lucien to celebrate my engagement with my fiancé and after asking for a nice romantic table and some wine. The staff exceeded my expectations and created a very fun and romantic evening.

Oustanding food. Service was
Oustanding food. Service was good throughout the evening, until the very end when the owner came over to let us know he is expecting a group of ten to arrive. It was the first weekend of TIFF so understandable, but we did not feel we overstayed our welcome, so could have been handled differently. Other than that really nice place and would recommend for a nice romantic dinner or a special celebration.

Wonderful pre-theatre spot
I invited a few friends from out of town to the theatre and dinner. Simon treated us very well - lots of fun, great food and good wine suggestions. The oysters were fresh, they accommodated some of our antics. All was good. I would recommend highly.

Had a great time. You can't go wrong with great food and great service. I appreciated that we weren't hurried through our courses and were able to enjoy the wine and the food. Everyone in my party of four enjoyed the main dish that they ordered the oysters that were ordered to start were delicious. Would highly recommend I am sure I will return in the future.
