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.

We had a great time. The staff was excellent, as was the food! The "date night" special for $50 was a fantastic deal. We'll be back.

Date night is a great value without giving up the great dining experience you get from them.

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.

Very loud upon arrival, and full dining room. Did get quieter toward the end of the evening. Food was quite good, but the lamb shank was lukewarm temp when it arrived to the table.

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!

Date night with friends and neighbors. Was asked for a recommendation for a place to go on Sunday for dinner. Cafe Lurcat was my first and only suggestion. Gather some others to join us and had a great meal with good friends.
