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.

I was hosting a dinner meal here and was very impressed with this restaurant. The staff was very accommodating and was present enough that we never waiting for anything and they were not overbearing. Our server (Taylor) made excellent food recommendations and was very engaging. I would happily return here for future meals

We had 6:00 p.m reservation on a Saturday and we were 2 adults with a toddler of the maybe 10 customers at any given time in the place until we left approximately 7:30 p.m. The spinach that came with my piece of chicken breast and not a fourth of a chicken was to salty (from a can). Ego the waitress (training someone which is the reason we had three menu a piece) took it upon herself to add 20% gratuity to our bill, inspite of what we might have thought of the service. I could hear Ego talking when we were leaving but, I could not see her.
Please come with a pocket full of money, the gratuity and tax along will cost more than you meal. Especially if you have a few drinks and is not paying attention to your bill. I could not recommend Lucas Grill without giving the full status of of my first experience. Secret shoppers are out and about.

Food was excellent. Would have rather been seated in the main dining/bar area as we were a little isolated in a back room. But, overall, everything was wonderful.

Had reservations: waited for hostess, seated ourselves at only lowtop due to stroller/highchair, table was dirty, waited for waiter to clean, waited for drink order, waited for drinks. Then, service got better. Food good, but pricy. $100 lunch.

The food was so good, I came back the next day for happy hour. The Brussels sprouts with grits, avocado toast with smoked salmon and the halibut were outstanding. The caramel ice cream and whiskey sour sorbet were hits as well. If there hadn’t been a fruit fly in my companion’s salad, I would have given 5 stars.

We were looking for a place to eat away from our hotel, but a good value, and good eats.
We were not disappointed. The happy hour specials were very good and everyone was happy with their dinners.
The wait staff was amazing and Bella was very attentive and sweet.
Yes I would recommend it to someone looking for a easy meal, good value, and not your everyday bar food!

Great find in St Louis!
We spent the night near the arch, wanted better than average dining within strolling distance. Hit the jackpot here! Scallops: pronounced best possibly ever. Duck: right up there too. Service was low key and friendly. Prices more than fair.
Highly recommend!!

Waiter was very pleasant. Food was excellent. The big problem I had was that we weren’t done with our appetizers and our salads showed up. We were halfway through our salads and our entrees showed up. Very rushed, very disconcerting especially based on the prices that were charged. Felt we were getting the bums rush to get out of there.

The menu was inventive, and the food was delicious! The scallops were large and tender, and juicy--some of the best I have had! The cocktails were delicious as well. Our server was very attentive, and made excellent menu suggestions. We had concert tickets afterwards, and he made sure that we were out in a timely fashion!

Food was nothing to speak of, okay but not delicious especially for cost. We made reservations and once we arrived and were being seated we were told they were shampooing carpets that night and really shouldn’t have sat us there. We felt a little rushed due to that. It was a Friday night, probably should choose a non-weekend night for carpet shampooing.

We went for Easter brunch. The food was cold and not very good. We brought family and friends with us and I was embarrassed. The dessert bar looked like someone went to Sam’s Club and picked them up. Service was terrible. Overall not a good choice.
