Great place for dinner.. very good authentic dishes of portugal.our waiter was fluent in Portuguese and he and my wife chatted in her native language and helped me with some of my phrases as I am learning (slowly).. I would definitely recommend.
Great food and service. We travel over 30 minutes to dine hear and do not regret it.
The menu is very limited and I actually didn’t find anything I wanted to eat. The white Portuguese wine was excellent and the service was very nice. I had been here once before and this visit confirmed that I probably won’t be back.
Cafe Lucia was a great experience. Once we were seated, we were offered amuse-bouche treats. Those were delicious. Our server was really good and answered questions to help us decide what to order.
We wanted to try the Portuguese cuisine and each dish we tried was superb. The dishes combined great flavors, spices and ingredients. I loved the fisherman's stew. The dinner rolls were grandma's recipe and were delightful.
We ate early so the restaurant was not too full - and so the experience (to us) was quite lovely. It's a very nicely decorated and warm space with tables both inside and outside. For sure, we will eat here again.
Fresh interpretation of Portuguese food. It was a quiet evening and we were allowed to linger over our meal. Really nice that the wine corkage fee was waived.
Perfect as always! We live an hour away but make the effort to dine here as often as possible. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the entire county. Living in both Napa and Sonoma counties over the last 20 years, we have eaten at almost every fine restaurant. But this is the one we keep coming back to time and time again.
Cafe Lucia is tucked away in a cozy off the street location. The food is true Portuguese offering incredible and unique flavors. A must visit in Sonoma County.
Several people we asked had heard of Cafe Lucia but had never eaten there so we debated about keeping our dinner reservations. I am so glad we did - the food was excellent! I had the fisherman's stew and my husband the short ribs. Both dishes were wonderfully seasoned and plentiful. They gave us a small colorful and tasty beet starter as well as chocolate bites after the meal both complimentary. The dinner rolls were different and very good. Their free corkage policy was much appreciated as we brought wine from our local wine tasting. We ate inside because it was winter, but the restaurant has a nice covered area which would be perfect for outdoor dining. Service was a nice balance of efficient and attentive. I definitely recommend this restaurant and would make a point to go back again.
Tapas not the same
Friendly atmosphere, passionate about authentic Portuguese traditional offerings.
Able to explain ingredients and preparation. House made dinner rolls baked daily. Outstanding !
Great experience at Cafe Lucia! The dishes we ordered were delicious. The grilled sardines were simple and spectacular, reminding us of Portugal. We actually ordered more sardines to take out after our meal. Highly recommended!
Food was delicious! Complementary pre-dinner "beet shooter" and complimentary sweet at the end of of very wonderful dinner. Food fresh, well prepared, beautiful presentation. Would definitely go back again! and if you bring a Sonoma County wine there is no corkage therefore dinner was quite a value.
Wonderful meal. Great atmosphere. Awesome service. If you've never tried Portuguese food try it here.
Order was screwed up. Service was very slow. Noisy room . Portions were small for the price.
We went to Cafe Lucia for the first time as a date night venture as it was highly recommended by Open Table. Service, food, ambience was outstanding. It was a bit noisy as there was a large wine event going on that weekend and there were a number of people having dinner that had been out wine tasting that afternoon - not a usual occurrence.
Love this restaurant. The food is excellent, and a bit different from normal fare. The decor is terrific, it is comfortable and welcoming. The amuse bouche and truffle trailers were an added delight. We went on a Wednesday night; the ambience suffered from a lack of patrons. This restaurant deserves waiting lists as it is a wonderful place to dine. There were three of us, and we each had something different; we all loved our meals!
Good cuisine option in restaurant-filled Healdsburg. Reasonable for lunch and no corkage fee for local wines - a major plus. reat
A truly lovely place to dine with great service and a menu that is quite different from any other cuisine. It is not Spanish or Italian, it is food from the land of Portugal including the wine list. You should make a reservation as they book up almost every night although there is usually seating at the bar.
My friend and I kicked off the planning for our spring trip to Portugal at Cafe Lucia. What a jewel! Wonderful introduction to Portuguese food and wines. Love the option to taste a variety of wines. We will definitely be back as our trip gets closer and after the trip to relive Portugal.
Good food...but little ambiance.
Needs good music or something to liven up the place.
