Always enjoy our dinners at LPG. They were friendly, attentive and have good food. The gooey butter dessert is amazing. Will be back again!

The food is delicious but a bit pricey. Felt the steak dinner should include a side vegetable. Valet parking at $8 plus tip is an extra cost. We tried the onion rings and I would not get those again.

Nice bar area and it has smaller, cozy side areas. One had a fireplace. Nice outside area with a fire pit Service was very good. Cocktails were good too, we had a couple martinis, good volume. The bread was warm and seasoned, the butter was also seasoned. Good place.

We enjoyed a very nice meal at this restaurant. Although not an expansive menu there was sufficient variety. The dishes (short rib beef bourgoune and my wife made a meal of appetizers) were well prepared. Excellent team service. The wine list is very good and had a number of what I believe were value priced wines - for example a Justin meritage at $90 a Frank Family Cab at $80 (which is less than twice the retail rate - restaurant must have gotten a great distributor rate).

My husband and I really liked Lucas Park Grille. We had the Brussels sprouts appetizer, he had a rib eye steak and I had the halibut. Everything was fantastic (including the warm bread with honey/herb butter!) Portions were big so we shared the salted caramel cheesecake for dessert. It was also great. The only reason I did not give a 5 star rating is that some of the furniture needs to be replaced or recovered as the chair seat covers were very worn.

This place has it all: a beautiful venue, with roaring fireplaces, high ceilings, and lovely decor; a menu varied enough to please all palates; cocktails that are inventive and creative; food that is cooked to perfection, and served up in a manner to please the eyes as well as the taste buds; and fantastic service that is attentive, but not intrusive. We went pre-theater, and this early, the background noise was virtually undetectable; I don't know how loud it gets at the peak of dinner hour. I got the rib-eye steak, which was cooked just to my liking, and enhanced with cognac butter--delicious! My partner got fish, which was equally well prepared. We loved every aspect of this place, and will certainly return.

We were 5 women having an early dinner before the Bob Seger concert. Looked for a place with a varied menu that was a quick uber ride to and from Enterprise center. The happy hour small bites and plates menu was awesome and half price at happy hour. Food was ver good as was the service. Will definitely be back.

My husband I went here before an event downtown. The menu was not very big. I had the salmon which was phenomenal and my husband had the steak, but the sides were not very impressive. He ended up having an expensive steak and french fries. That was a little disappointing for the amount of money we spent. Nice atmosphere, just be prepared to spend quite a bit especially when you throw in some drinks!

My husband and I were attending a show in the Lou Friday evening and wanted a light dinner and a few drinks beforehand. We chose Lucas Park Grill due to its close proximity to the Enterprise Center. They had a wonderful appetizer menu with light bites that fit the bill perfectly. Even better, it was happy hour so some of the items were 1/2 off! Ordered a cosmo martini and it was really good. We will be back for sure.

The food was okay. We got the duck and didn’t want Brussels sprouts so we asked for other sides. I asked for sweet potato fries and my husband asked for sweet potato hash. They brought our food out my fries were burnt and the chef refused to put the hash on my husbands plate, he said it didn’t go but also didn’t put the Brussels sprouts in. He asked for the Brussels sprouts since he didn’t get his side. The chef said they would be raw Brussels sprouts... ? The duck was cooked well but the navy beans were pretty raw. The best thing was the drinks. Bar tender you were the real MVP. Five stars for the bar tender. Also, they charged a 20% gratuity for two people and didn’t tell us. They had an additional tip line. Overall, I was very disappointed in the chef. He seemed rude and unaccomidating. The service was fine. I would not recommend this to my friends and don’t plan on returning.

Amazing experience. I enjoyed a relaxing dinner this past Friday evening. My visit was private and the service was friendly and efficient. The ambiance was just what I needed. My dinner was creative & flavorful, and a good combination of sweet & savory. I didn't even know that I liked caviar until now -- my compliments to the chef. I will be back.

We went for Downtown Restaurant Week and happy we did. The quality of the food and service were fantastic. Considering there was a prefix menu and special pricing for restaurant week menu, the value was really unbeatable. We will definitely return to check out the regular menu based on our experience.

The food was excellent. I went during restaurant week and had the seafood ceviche for an appetizer which was amazing. steak and lobster for my main. Only negative was I ordered my steak medium and it was actually medium well when it came to the table but I still ate it and it was good. I would still go back.
