The food was excellent. The calamari appetizer was so tender and tasty and the entrees (grilled chicken and bolognese) were wonderful. The after dinner drinks at the bar were also fantastic as was the bartender Denise.

Very very good. The servers are pros- made us feel at home but still impeccable service. They're serving style is very old school and it was a breath of fresh air. The food was a complete pleasant surprise. I expected good, I got memorable.

We sat in booth in the main dining room. Enjoyed a very nice dinner with glasses of wine. We frequent Lucia’s and can say they have stepped up their game. If you haven’t been for awhile you should try it.

unfortunately I didn't make the reservation because it didn't work out for the other person - however -- I did try to cancel the reservation on-line -- (I wasn't in a place I could make a phone call discretely) -- I repeatedly tried to cancel but was unsuccessful --------- I will plan on a return trip however -- I've always enjoyed my dinners here --

Service was less than stellar. I believe it hey may have been shorthanded and would have been better off saying that upfront and we would have been sympathetic but instead had attitude. Waitress just reached right over us to pass food and just handed it off for us to pass down the table without a please or thank you.

We had reservations for 6, we were seated about 10 minutes early while we waiting for the rest of the party who were a few minutes late. Wait staff was excellent, food was delicious and atmosphere was nice. Wine selection was good, pre-dinner cocktails were also very good and festive.

My meal was about $35 it came with about 5 lobster raviolis which I think it should have came with at least a few more. My husband and his brother got meals with lobster in them and they did not seem like they were worth $38 . Also I did not like our waiter. Every time when he came over to our table if we were in the middle of a conversation he would but right in Without waiting a few seconds for us to stop talking .My husband's brother and his fiance Ordered a few drinks and after awhile wanted refills in the waiter kept forgetting about them and walking by and we had a hard time getting his attention when we did need it .It also took him about 40 minutes just to grab our check . My husband and I have been to lucias before and had a wonderful experience but this one was not as great . This visit was on Saturday december 2nd it was a reservation for 4 people at 6:15 p.m. Just wanted to leave some comments and let the staff know.

Food was fine, but service was really very poor. Had a business dinner for 10 people, served by one waiter who seemed disinterested. I felt embarrassed and will not make that mistake again. Might wait to cool off and try again as just a couple, but never again a large group and certainly not a business event.
