Always a great location, with beautiful views and excellent service!
Fantastic food, especially love the fresh beet salad. Kid friendly and properly distanced outdoor tables.
Always a treat!
Wonderful lunch outdoors. There is a giant tent around the area, but did not feel like under a tent due to open areas and so many windows letting the sunshine in. Everything was excellent: service, food, ambiance (even had live music). This is the first meal out that felt normal since Covid started: real plates and utensils, as opposed to paper/plastic in most other restaurants, full bar, great service. My absolute favorite place to eat in Carmel Valley.
food, service, venue are wonderful, not to mention the weather...much different than being in Carmel or Pebble Beach
A great experience. Wonderful service and amazing food.
We have dined here many times. It is always very tasty and pleasurable, from the ambiance to the wonderful flavors. We have never been disappointed and neither will you!
They are only serving outside the main restaurant. It was a cool and wet night but the heaters really helped. The food was good, the service outstanding. This is an expensive place but worth the trip and the price.
Fantastic food served in amazing surroundings.
One of the best dining experiences I have ever had!! The food was absolutely delicious and the service team were all so wonderful! Our anniversary was made completely special here.
wonderful lunch and experience, as always.. we wish we didn`t have to drive 2 hours return to experience it again, but we will.....
Beautiful setting and great service at Lucia for breakfast during our weekend stay at the Resort
Our waiter Dave made the experience wonderful. We had a great dinner at Lucia.
The food was exceptional. The service was mediocre, especially for a restaurant of this caliber. The table was sticky with bits of food stuck between the slats and a few kernels of rice on the table to remind us of what the last diner had for dinner.
Great spot for a lunch date and amazing outdoor dining on the patio.
Covid times so I wanna cut em a brake... but service was pretty unacceptable. Waited over an hour for food to arrive. We generally have.great food amd service here but not this time.. Regretted making this one of our last meals before the shut down.
Excellent food and top notch service. The recently installed clear outdoor dining tent is very well done and effective in cold and rain.
Went there on a Wednesday. They had plenty of heaters for outside. We had a 530 reservation so we beat the crowd. Dave was our server and did a great job. The wine and food was great and the timing was just right. We noticed it filled up around 7 PM. The food was about the best we have had since moving to Carmel in February!
Best Pizza ever! Delicious Bernardus wine!
We were greeted by the friendly hostess and taking to our table, it was outside because of Covid. It was in the evening and there was enough heaters for warmth. The server was friendly And courteous. Appetizers were fantastic along with the main dishes and dessert. Overall great dining.
Lovely brunch in a beautiful outdoor seating scenery. Our servers were excellent. Will being attending again for dinner soon.
The food was excellent as always. We had crab cakes a squid salad, lamb and chicken. It was all great.
A great event Our server ,Jason, did a great job and we look forward to back very soon
Friendly staff. Excellent food..lovely enviroment
Wonderful meal and service. Jennifer was excellent and so was the food.
The ambiance and surroundings are beautiful, but the service, menu and food was very disappointing.
My husband and I came here for our 30th wedding anniversary dinner. Our waitress wasn’t really warm and welcoming. My husband ordered a steak and it came out cold. He normally doesn’t send things back but because it was expensive he did. When his steak came back, it was sliced up. For $65 they did not give him a new uncut steak. He didn’t want to hassle so he ate the meal. The manager came to our table and was accomadating to us and said he would comp my husbands meal. I just thought when you go to a restaurant such as this you would get a good meal and have acceptable service from waitress . I realize it’s covid and all but you’d think with this type of establishment they would give you a decent meal with good service.
We had a wonderful breakfast! The food was amazing and the service was excellent
Fantastic food, as always. The State of California's idiotic rules have forced Monterey Co restaurants outdoors, which is not ideal on 45 degree nights, but Lucia does the best it can with several outdoor heaters.
This is a romantic place to take a special someone for dinner. Ambiance was cozy and service was wonderful. After dinner, guests are welcomed to sit by the fire pit with a cocktail or wine. Definitely would recommend this place for a special occasion.
We had a wonderful birthday dinner!
Excellent all around!
Thank you so much.
We come here every year for our anniversary and this was by far the best trip. Our waitress Jennifer was amazing. Her service and knowledge was on point.
The food was outstanding great butternut squash soup. I had salmon end my friend had halibut both were excellent
Expensive, food moderate, needed table light, dessert disappointing wine overpriced. Rooms still beautiful/top notch
First we waited 30 minutes past our reservation time for a table where we could hear the traffic. Food was good but not special. Broiled salmon salad was more like tuna salad. Steak tartare was excellent. Had to ask three times for water.
Wonderful patio away from the busy-ness of the world, great food and local wine selection
Great ambiance with tables even further apart than normal. The food is innovative and seasonally fresh. Every course is perfection. My only complaint would be there was no vegetarian option as an entree for the day - menus changes daily. The chef ended up creating a bountiful plate of side veggies.
Always amazing! Food is great. Chef Cal does a really good job. Portions are bit larger than expected. Service is amazing and the ambiance, you can't beat!
