Our go to nice restaurant. The menu design has change yet there must haves remain! My husband always orders the miso sea bass (you can't imagine how spectacular - you just have to eat it to understand). I like to explore new items! Everything was excellent - taste, presentation, service - perfect

Very delicious food! We had the mushroom starter, which was awesome. For dinner we had the steak and one of the seafood forward pastas, both were very good. And three vegetable sides, all very good!

I was disappointed with the place for Valentine’s Day. It was a great experience several years ago with most tables for couples, single rose at table, great food on fixed menu. Food was ok but all or most were tables for 4. I asked door table by window as there were many open but given table on opposite wall. I made reservation months in advance. At best all was ok but not great. Considering $200 bill, it’s not worth it.

I had the steak...being a steak snob I did not know if would enjoy it. Well...it was perfect/delicious. My friend had a pasta salad . I thought it was great but she did not enjoy it...but loved my steak. We both enjoyed the doughnuts.

WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG TO DINE HERE!? That is all I have been asking myself since our amazin dinner Saturday night. Food was outstanding and service was delightful. I have already told 4 of our friends about it and that I am making them come with us for dinner again soon. Thanks for a perfect night.

We had dinner prior to a show the week of the Super Bowl. Downtown traffic was absolutely nuts but our server did a terrific job assuring that our order was put in quickly. We were able to enjoy our meal, which was excellent, with plenty of time to make our show. We're looking forward to returning for their Sunday date night menu!

Beginning from the first course through dessert, Cafe Lucrat hits the nail on the head.

I think if I went back, I would prefer to be in the bar. I like the ambiance in there better than in the back room. Food and service were excellent. It was a little spendy when you order drinks, apps, salad, and entree but for a special occasion, it was a fun night.

The ginger, shrimp rice dish was tasty. Could benefit from even more ginger. The presentation for the chicken dish was attractive and the meat moist, but lacking seasoning. Consider adding more sauce to the plate allowing the diner to coat the chicken with it. Service as a bit slow and the noice levels were high making it difficult to hear the conversation at our table. It would be nice if the restaurant offered quieter locations.

Though we have enjoyed the food drink and ambiance at Lurcat for several years, the NOISE IN THE CAFE SECTION was such that we had to lean forward and speak face to face. Very discouraging for a celebration of spouse's birthday. Choosing a time earlier or later than 6.30, or perhaps a table in the Bar should avoid such experiences.
