The overall experience was enjoyable. The food was good. The service was lacking attentiveness. We waited 15 min or so to finally order. We waited 20 min or so for a dessert menu of which we never received. When the waiter returned, he just apologized and said he forgot. So we just asked for our check. We enjoyed being together as a family so all the waiting didn’t ruin the evening for us, but a more attentive wait staff would have made the evening better. Not sure we will return.

I booked Valentines dinner several weeks in advance and confirmed my reservations the day before Valentines day, but when I arrived they didn't have us in their system. Luckily we had an 2 emails confirming the reservation but still ended up waiting for our table. Not sure what the point of having a reservation is if they don't have your table? The food was good, but the service was slow and the 4 course dinner included Champagne which was never offered/delivered. When you plan a nice evening out with you spouse and you have to involve a manager to honor the reservations you have confirmation for it stinks.

I went with my partner to celebrate an early Valentine's day dinner together, and we had an absolute wonderful time there. Our reservation was for 6pm on a Sunday, and much to our surprise the restaurant was empty during that time. I doubt this is a norm for the restaurant, but nonetheless we enjoyed the quiet ambiance of the location while our server was both kind and entertaining during our meal. The food was delicious, the desserts were amazing, and our drinks were made so well. To this day, my boyfriend still talks about this place with high regard, and we look forward to returning here for the future! Again, Lucas Park Grille deserves a 5/5 in our books!

It was a little louder than usual for our dinner because it was New Year's Eve, but even with the speakers in the front room, my wife and I still were able to hold a conversation without having to speak loudly to each other. We had a great night!

I was a little concerned when I was able to get a reservation at LPG at the last minute for New year's eve. However, we were very happy we went there. They had a reasonably priced prix-fix menu as well as their regular items. Everything was very good and the service was excellent.

The interior of the restaurant is quite run down and the food was very greasy. I was disappointed in the quality. After waiting about 20 minutes for a bottle of wine we ordered, the waiter came back to tell us they had run out. Not sure why it took so long to figure that out. I would not go there again.

In a downtown area filled with options, the LPG is an acceptable landing spot. Service was attentive and generally accurate, although the server misheard my entree order. Upon flagging the error staff were apologetic and handled things swiftly.

Parking is an issue. Plan ahead with SpotHero or take your chances on the busy nights.

Our server seemed depressed - that's why I gave that 4 stars. He was attentive though; refilling water, checking everything was okay. Maybe just a bad day. Food was excellent! The fabrics on the couch-like seats were dirty from years of use - but otherwise, we loved the atmosphere. It was very quiet - but we were there from 4:30-5:30pm. It might be louder later in the evening, but there is more than adequate space between the tables to allow for private conversation. We had a great time, the food was superb and the price was comfortable - we shared 3 appetizers for a $23 bill (during happy hour).

Absolutely amazing! It was quiet which was great! The service was awesome food amazing and they were awesome about making sure none of the food had walnuts as I am highly allergic. This included our waiter and the chef deciding to bring out the dessert that was going to start the next day just bc I couldn’t have the bread pudding they were serving that day. We will definitely be going back. Thank you Curtis for the amazing dinner and experience!

This a great place to enjoy dinner in a relaxed environment. We had a beet salad, lobster mac n cheese and Shrimp. All of it was excellent. Our waiter was very pleasant and attentive.

I love OpenTable and the ability to make a reservation online for a large party easily. This place was near our hotel, and had a great menu with offerings in our price range. We had a table in a back room that was perfect for our party. The food was excellent and presentation was amazing. Great value as well. My only critique is that the dinner wine wasn't served until most of us were done with our entrees. I'd return again.

Everything was great. Made a last minute reservation for 8 people for a friend's birthday and arrived to a beautiful table where they re-purposed balloons from earlier in the day. Such a fun surprise. Food was delicious and service was great.

The food was delicious. It was quiet which is what we were wanting. We had to ask for some bread to be brought to the table which is not a huge deal but if you're paying this kind of money that should be a given right?

Our initial experience was terrible. We were seated and greeted quickly, but no one came back to our table for about 10 minutes. I watched as workers walked by us over and over again. Right as we were about to get up and leave, a different server noticed us and asked if we had been helped. The experience afterwards was much better. She was great and the food was great.

For the prices of this restaurant, I expect the service and ambiance to be better than it was.
