    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    Was thrilled to find a highly-rated restaurant in Poway. Since I had read the reviews, we knew to order the sweet potato fries and the mac 'n cheese. They both were wonderful. The fries were cooked and the chipotle mayo makes them tasty. The mac was cheesy and gooey with a wonderful flavor. One friend had a turkey wrap(which came out 5-8 minutes after our entrees came out) which she said was just "okay." The salad on the plate with the wrap had no dressing even though the waitress said it did. I had the special which was shrimp, chicken and sausage jumbalaya. Delicious. We also read the red velvet cupcakes were good so we shared one. Bad idea. A day or 2 old and dry. Ask when they were baked!

    Our server was so welcoming, friendly and very efficient. I thought it was quite nice for a strip mall restaurant. We'll most likely return for a casual meal.

    What a great find! Who would have known what a great spot this is? Don't let the strip mall location fool you, this is a nice little restaurant. The food was great, service was friendly and the price was right. We'll be back!

    The food was good and the service was great, but the waiters checked on us too often which is very rare. My companion asked them not to check on us so frequently so we could talk.

    Love this place! Very unassuming; it's located in a retail mall, but don't be fooled, this is quality fare. I had the special which was a chicken crepe and side salad for $14. Beautifully prepared, outstanding quality and taste, at an extremely reasonable price. I clearly don't understand comments regarding portion size; my special plus a cup of soup was plenty. Their portions are definitely not undersized, but may feel that way in an 'all you can eat' or 'super-sized' world. However, if you do find room for dessert, don't pass up the apple lasagna; amazing!

  • Luc's is a great neighborhood
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    Luc's is a great neighborhood restaurant. The servers are attentive, and the beer and wine lists are great. They have 1/2 price wine bottles on Thursdays and $10 burger/beer nights on Tuesdays. This season they have a delicious fall macaroni dish with squash and walnuts. Check out their menu, make a reservation {not always needed, but helpful}, and bring the kids too! Our kiddo loves the chicken tenders and fries. I have tried everything on the menu over the last few years and I enjoy each dish. The soups, salads and cornbread muffins are great mainstays as well. Enjoy!

    The people who operate this restaurant are extremely nice and work very hard. The service was very good. The food came out promptly and hot. The food is good and very reasonably priced, but I think it could be better if they would make some menu changes to add more healthy fare. My wife had the macaroni and cheese which she said was very good. I had the seafood trio, which I thought was just okay. The menu offers a lot of beef and dishes with creamy sauces, neither of which I eat.

    It's a bit difficult to find if you don't know where it is, but Luc's Bistro is a nice spot for a meal. The portion sizes are not that large, but they are completely in-line with the (very reasonable) prices and the idea of doing a multi-course meal. This may be one of the best "value for money" restaurants on OpenTable in the SD area....
