Perfect, as usual
Went to Luc’s for Easter dinner, everything was outstanding, which is what I have come to expect from this small gem hidden in a Poway strip mall. The lobster bisque was a perfect start to the meal. The special, braised lamb, was delicious. The signature beverage for the evening, a Maker’s Mark Mint Julep, could not have been done any better.

Delicious food. Outstanding
Delicious food. Outstanding service. Awful location (though the restaurant itself is done quite nicely for being in a strip mall).

The place was empty when I
The place was empty when I walked in a little after 5:00PM so that made me wonder. The hostess/server was very friendly and helpful. My beet salad was overwhelmed by too much lettuce and not enough dressing. I had a filet of sole which was cooked perfectly and accompanied by broccoli and potatoes which were equally well prepared. What was lacking, I guess, were a few crackers with the salad or bread with the entrée, or something. Probably worth going back.

I don't think I would of ever found this restaurant just by driving by. It's in a set back strip mall. But what a find. Nice little place, quite and well decorated. Great friendly, attentive serving staff who made sure we were well taken care of. Food was unexpectedly great. The portions were appropriate and the flavors were deep. We did not have any alcohol, but they had a varied wine and bar list. prices were reasonable . Without alcohol about 18.00 each. Great find, will definitely go back .

We'll Be Back
Luc's menu offers items not found in your typical "chain" type establishments. Nice to be able to enjoy some dishes that are common in brasseries/cafes in France. My soup was divine, and the pasta dish was delicious. All in our group of four all said we'll be back. Our food server was charming and efficient, making our dining experience first rate.

Always a winner
Luc's has been our go to in Poway for years. The best things there are the fish dishes, the soups, burgers and the shrimp and grits.

Thomas was awesome
My entire waitstaff was great! They timed the courses perfectly.
The chicken in wine sauce reduction was not the best texture but it had great flavor. The creme brûlée was magnifique. Tres Bon

Ambiance, food & service were great! Try the crab cakes, jalapeño corn bread & risotto! You won't be dissappointed.

Great spot for lunch. Luc's Bistro is our go-to place to meet our Mt. Woodson friends even if we travel from near downtown.
Great food. I always have to try the soup. Beats "corporate chain" establishment menu items. "Tori", our charming food server on more than one occasion is always been first-rate. Try Luc's Bistro.

Good comfort food
Our server was very friendly and helpful. My date and I had the sweet potato fries with chipotle mayo, which was delicious. I had the chicken & dumplings, my date had the carbonara.... both were very good... I would've liked my entree a little less peppery, but it was still very tasty. For dessert, we had the panna cotta. The panna cotta itself and the raspberry topping were delicious, but the "walnut crumble" that came on top of it was a little disappointing - it was more like a broken-up cookie on top, which didn't taste very walnut-y to me. Overall, though, I really enjoyed it. I'll be coming back here when I'm craving good down-home comfort food.... I imagine also wanting to come here on a rainy day..when comfort is what you want.

Dinner at Luc's
Great high quality comfort food dishes with a sophistication you might not expect. All this at reasonable prices make this a great local find. The wait staff was very attentive and each of the 3 dishes we ordered were excellent.
