My husband and i were traveling to St. Louis to visit our SLU student son. We’ve been on a clean eating program, and wanted to find a great restaurant that could meet our needs. This was a great find! We each had a different kale based salad. I know- doesn’t sound enticing; not the kinds of things we used to order- but they were excellent. Ordered tea and got an array of options plus extra hot water without asking. We plan to come back every time we are in town.

We had the most amazing evening at Lucas Park! Very neat and attractive building and decor, very welcoming and attentive at the door, the service was great, we asked for a quiet table to celebrate valentines a little early (eve of Mardi Gras ha!). I had to try the house salad, it’s one of my favorite kind, it was delicious! Loved it! My husband had their crab cakes and was pleasantly surprised at the unique fusion flavor. I had the filet with port wine reduction, it was very good, cooked exactly as requested, sides we also very good. My husband had ribeye and he was equally as pleased. Our server was a pro, they checked on us, took good care while giving us quiet time we wanted. Really can’t say enough nice things. Must try if you haven’t been!

On a busy Saturday night, we went for a pre-show bite to eat. I want to thank everyone from the manager who nicely sat us in a quiet corner to the waiter who was attentive and got us our meals quickly. We had enough time to enough our food and still make the show with plenty of time. I never knew LPG had a quieter back room and was thankful to be seated there! Great service and good food... as season ticket holders, we will be back again. Thank you for a nice dining experience.

The food was very good. The rest of the restaurant seemed pretty loud. There were number of large parties and a variety of seating styles - hi-tops, regular tables, booths. My only complaint is that we had a reservation and yet we were originally seated directly in front of the kitchen door (why do they even have a table there?!). We asked to move, and we were seated one table over - better. But we were in a dark corner with three other tables. The others were both empty for most of the night. Three different parties turned down the same table. It was fine, but we just felt like we were off in some forgotten leper colony. It was quiet, which was nice and the manager was super nice. He stopped by to check on us and offered us a free dessert (we never said anything about the table.)

This was disappointing from the door to desert. Not a disaster, but disappointing. Host staff was disorganized and not welcoming. Server stepped in and got us to our table.

First disappointment was completely different menu than posted online at Open Table. Almost a completely different concept. Several inviting vegetarian options online: zero on menu. We had a superfood salad and a modified Scallop pasta with no bacon. Salad was good, Scallops were way too salty, and not very good. Nutella crunch bar desert was difficult to eat (frozen?) And the white chocolate "mousse" was chalky and bland.

Service was good, but we had to grin and bear it when asked how things were tasting, etc.

The glass of wine was very good and the extensive wine list is worth noting for oenophiles.

Food was cold. Service was very slow. I watched a bouncer remove an unresponsive girl who had been drinking outside the door in the cold. I was concerned about her health, but this restaurant was only concerned about their liability. Shameful. I will never return.

Amazing dinner on Saturday night, love the menu selections from small plates to larger entrees. We arrived early and enjoy drinks with appetizers at the bar, great selection of wine. Then moved to a great table in the main dining room for an amazing dinner. Menu is very diverse, offering numerous of gluten free options (which was important to us), service was great and the food did not disappoint. Can not wait to go back again, many things on the menu left to try. Don't miss Lucas Park.

Whenever we stay in downtown St. Louis we make one of our dinners at Lucas Park Grill. Perfect menu size and offering that changes just often enough. Always have a wonderful dinning experience when we go there. Inside or out the atmosphere is always appreciated and the service has always been great. Highly recommend!

I like LPG for business meals because we can walk from work and eating a little early it's rarely crowded. Service is always excellent and attentive, but not over bearing which is the sign of experienced servers and appreciated. The food choices and variety are excellent. Delicious and interesting appetizers, too. Recommended!

Went with a friend and found a revamped menu, I had a rib-eye as I do semi-regularly, my friend had the pork shank and the meat fell off the bone...I'll have that next time. Both very flavorful. A great restaurant downtown near convention center and hockey.

Friday night at 7:30pm so it was pretty busy and noisy. We were placed at a table by the bar with a bunch of TVs so there was a lot of distraction which I am not fond. There was no other place so we sat there. Freezing cold night in Saint Louis and we had reservations. Service was prompt and pleasant. Our server, Michael, was quick with our drinks. Nice menu, but when I looked at the menu on line it was their summer menu and now they on onto the Fall menu, so nothing I planned on having was available. Call ahead and I will send a note to the restaurant. To be honest it did not matter. Several excellent choice from appetizers to salads to entrees to dessert. Extensive wine list as well. Pork belly and soup appetizers and elk chop and large house salad were very nice. Nice size servings. Really enjoyed ourselves. It was loud, but not boisterous and we could easily carry on a conversation even though we were feet from the bar. I would not hesitate to return and highly recommend while in the Washington Avenue area or if you are a local as we are, nice before the Blues or Cardinals or the theater or symphony.

I've yet to go wrong selecting Lucas Park as my "go to" venue for business meals. Surprisingly not too many of my local colleagues had actually been there. The food was excellent. I believe the night we were there, they may have been a bit shorthanded. Our host and waiter Mike was left handling us plus another very large party. We only had one minor issue which was when they forgot to bring out one of our meals. We all waiting almost 10 minutes after 6 of 7 of us were served. My entire party was very pleased.

Food was good. Duck was on their online menu still which was one of the reasons we chose there. Menu at the restaurant had changed and removed the duck. But overall still good. We sat outside on a nice night. Had a few sewer type odors float through but not sure the restaurant could have helped that. Overall good experience

We enjoyed sharing appetizers (crab mango stack and Mediterranean sampler), along with the tomato soup and sweet potato fries. All excellent. After being seated by the host, it took a while for the waiter to find us (host forgot to tell him we were seated). The waiter was very apologetic and offered first round of drinks on the house. We were delighted! It was a quiet evening of great food and atmosphere. The furniture shows some age, and the place could use some overall refreshing, but it's still pretty good for a good meal and good service.
