This was the first time I had been to Lucy Ho's and I was very impressed. We have a take-out Chinese restaurant near our house but wanted something more so we went here. We both got soup and my Egg Drop was very good. I also got the spring roll and loved it. I wanted to get the mango beef tenderloin but they were out of it so I got the sweet and sour chicken instead. It was very good also. However, be forewarned, the portion sizes are huge. Both of us took home enough food for another meal. We asked the server if we could split the entrée next time and she said we could so hopefully we will remember to do so. I would recommend Lucy Ho's to anyone wanting a really good Chinese restaurant.

We made our reservation for a party of 10 at 7:30 on a Saturday night. When we arrived at the restaurant, they told us that they purposefully overbooked because people don't tend to show up and we therefore had to wait for our table. We waited for almost an hour. Not sure what the point of taking reservations if the restaurant isn't going to honor them. They also claimed that they sometimes do not get the OpenTable reservations - but they clearly had ours - as our name was already on the "list" when we arrived. It's too bad because the food was good - but we ended up being there until the restaurant closed because we were seated so late. Very disappointing.

We were visiting our kids for parents weekend and went to Azu with a large group. We had a reservation and was seated within 10 minutes of arriving. The service was great and the food was even better. Everyone in the party said how much they enjoyed their dinner. We will definitely be going back.

Found this place on Open table 4 days before arriving in Tallahassee. It had good reviews on Open table and Yelp so we made reservation. Very good chinese food and sushi. Would definitely go back again when in the area.

 (Atlanta)·Dined on November 5, 2017

We went for the second year in a row during parent’s weekend at FSU. Last year, my whole family went (4 kids, 18, 15, 15, 9) and we loved it. So we came back this year with my college student and my in laws. Even though they were really crowded, we were seated right on time. Our waitress was adorable and gave us great recommendations. The food was delicious and the ambiance is very nice, although we would have liked it a little more dimly lit on a Saturday night. The food was not expensive. Considering we had drinks, appetizers, soup and entrees, we were pleasantly surprised with our bill. It’s a little off the beaten path from the college, but well worth the trip! I’m sure we’ll be coming back again next year!!

Waited about an hour for entree to be delivered after ordering (nothing special or complicated). Waitress apologized several times, and just said kitchen was backed up, but we observed other nearby parties who arrived after us received their main courses well before us. No offer to comp appetizer or drinks or anything...it was a really long wait.

Excellent food. Open Table great because people lined up outside Restaurant. Large portions. Fresh food. Regular soy sauce overly salty so they offer “low sodium”.

We have come frequently to this restaurant because of the attention to the food and attentiveness of the staff. We had a business dinner that we had reserved a large table for, and had to get it moved to a quieter area to hear each other. Unfortunately the wait staff was almost absent after that, and we had to send one of our party out to flag down a waitress. Everything was slow, the waitress had obviously not been trained, and little things like tasting the wine before pouring to all of the people at the table was overlooked. Luckily the food was good as always.

Consistently good food. Service was prompt but not rushed. Vegetarians among us were satisfied too. When it is packed, the noise level gets a little high, but otherwise easy to talk to your tablemates. I am a repeat diner and recommend to out of town guests.

Went on Mother's Day at 3pm. Restaurant was not very busy but service was poor. Waited at least 10 minutes for a server, food took 50 minutes to arrive. It was also very hot inside. Not sure if the AC was broken but that needs to be addressed. Food quality was good as usual. Have been many times and they are usually better than this. Will update the review next time I am through if things are better.

I was familiar with Lucy Ho's restaurants since the 70's. It was good then and it's good now, even though it's her nephew (I think) running this restaurant. We went on a tuna binge and everything was excellent.

Friendly staff, great server, good menu selection. We ordered the sushi box for the table and everyone enjoyed it. The ginger was fresh and sliced thin. The wasabi was fresh and potent. Drinks were refilled well before 1/3 empty. 5 of the 6 people enjoyed their meal enough to want to return. The 6th said the Mongolian Beef was very greasy, with mushy vegetables and he would not return. Noise level at lunch session is high and the servers had to move at a faster pace than a good restaurant should require - it almost makes you feel that you need to order, eat and leave as quick as you can.
