Lucille at Drury Lane Ratings and Reviews
Excellent pasta dish, great portion. I would prefer bread on table, rather than "bread man." He only came by once and then disappeared. Waiter very, very slow. Had to wave to him to get him to come over and take order. Waited 1/2 hour for food. Manager finally had it brought out. Going to 6 pm show, so that was a little stressful and irritating.
Our waiter was very sweet, but, the restaurant was busy and we were part of a pre-show crowd. Salads came in a timely manner, but, then we waited quite some time for our entrees. This caused us to rush a little because we were going to the 6 o'clock show. Then we had to wait for our bill....A supervisor/manager brought us our bill to speed things up. All in all, everyone was VERY nice and the food was excellent! So, despite the wait(s), I would definitely go again! The good outweighed the bad, so to speak. They also offer a service where they will hold on to your "to-go" packages and have them ready for you to go after the show! Nice touch!
Had dinner before play. Server was conscious of time, mentioned subscriber discount. Menu had plenty of choices and food was excellent. They kept leftovers refrigerated and ready for us after show. Wasn’t very crowded but it was midweek with a snow warning in the forecast.
I have eaten at Drury Lane in the past when it wasn't called "Lucille" and always enjoyed it. I ws very disappointed to find out how much the menu has changed, since I last ate there. Before we used to get an entire meal, now everything is "a la carte". The portions were larger and you were definitely satisfied with your meal when you left. The food was good, but not worth the money. You have a lot of competition in the Oak Brook area, where you can get more food for less money and I for one will be considering what of your competitors from now on. If you want to keep up with the competition, I would reconsider your menu. My friend and I will not be eating at Lucille's again and I will not be recommending it to others. Thank you for taking my review under consideration.
Lucille is very nice and menu choices are OK, but they are tired!! We are season ticket holders at Drury Lane and this is going on our third season and the menu has NOT changed !! We have decided not to have lunch there again, at least for the next few plays. We may come a bit early and just have dessert and coffee, but the choices on the lunch menu have run their course.
Liked it so much better when the menus reflected the plays and their was something different each time we would come. (Especially liked the salmon in a pastry puff!!!)
Drury Lane has always been on our short list for Dinner/Theatre packages. We have often attended large corporate events and weddings. This time I took my family of 14 for my 70th Birthday to the Sunday Brunch. Ages from 5 to 70 all found their favorite foods and ventured into trying new favorites. The kids buffet was a hit, as was the other 10 serving sections. The offerings are so varied, kept at the perfect temperature, and are constantly monitored for refilling. Don't let the brunch price be a determining factor for you. When you consider this includes multiples of appetizers, entrees, desserts, and champagne, mimosas, Bellini's, and custom-made Bloody Mary's, you really get a bang for your buck. I know because last year I took this same group to my favorite sit down Italian restaurant, and my bill was more than double. This is an elegant venue with a professional staff and excellent food. I'm sure we'll be back again and again.
I actually won the Brunch in a drawing from submitting a survey about Joseph. I am grateful for the opportunity to enjoy the brunch. My first impression was overwhelming with so many food stations. However, it is almost too much. We walked around to see what was available and then chose a few things to start. We did come back for a second plate. We did not have any of the traditional items such as eggs, waffles, pasta bar, etc because there was too much. We ended with a couple of choices from the dessert bar.
The food itself was good, not great, and although we chose to come just after you opened so everything would be fresh, the food was not hot. The desserts were not impressive. We chose a couple of small items and only had a bite of each as they were not good enough to really enjoy.
I don’t mean to sound ungrateful but if I were contemplating coming back, I feel that there is no way to enjoy $40 worth of food. Maybe having less to choose from and lowering the cost would be a better option. I saw a very large group of young men and I believe they probably enjoyed the volume of food and offset the lesser amount eaten by probably the majority of people. I’m guessing a lot of wasted food left on plates. I did purchase a Bloody Mary and think $10 is a little pricey.
I again want to thank Drury Lane for the brunch. Just wanted to be honest about our experience. I doubt you ask about our experience unless you want honest opinions.
We decided to eat here after seeing Joseph & Amazing Dreamcoat. The calamari appetizer was very good. My filet was a little over done. My aunts salmon was prepared well. My mom’s 8 finger cavetelli was very good. The desserts were very good also. I would eat here again.
We always enjoy our brunch at Lucille. It is our "go to" brunch place. What amazes me is the seafood. Usually buffets have horrible seafood but Lucille's buffet has seafood that would rival any upscale seafood house. The price of the brunch is worth the seafood alone. There is no need to carb load here if you are on a restricted diet. There are wonderful selections for the light eater and it is worth the price even if you do not over-indulge in the quantity. Service is impeccable.
Our family has been comming to Drury Lane for years. The service has always been very good to outstanding. Well Ferdinand , the server, wait should I call him that? The absolute worse. We had to ask for every refill on our drinks. He would stand around with his hands behind his back. It was not very busy. Never did he inquire was everything ok with our food or did we need anything. We had to ask for the check . It took forever.then it took forever and a day for him to run my credit card and return to the table. Perhaps Ferdinand would be happier doing something else? Certainly he is not cut out for food service.
Making Reservations was very easy
We were greeted right away and shown to a quiet area for our table
Mimosas were served in a timely manner
Coffee when requested was served in a timely manner
Check when requested was produced in timely manner
Variety of food was very extensive and all members of our party were unanimous in saying that the taste and preparation was outstanding
Food was good. Service was alright for the price you’re paying. My husband’s coffee was served with a red lipstick mark on it. Top of it, server drops a piece of foil into our drink and didn’t even change the drink for my husband. Automatically, she should go and bring a new drink, but she did not. Other than that, my family enjoyed the brunch. Would I go back? Not sure.
We miss sitting in the main dining room. It is way too noisy in the smaller room we have been in the last few times.
The food is too expensive. Who ever heard of a salad marked $7.00 but then charged $12.00 because it was eaten with soup. And eaten as an entree. The two people eating this did not want to eat a whole dinner and did not want to spend the money for a big meal when they were not that hungry.. Very disappointing. One person in our group had the lamb. It was tough and full of grissel.
We all miss the pre theatre menu that you used to have. We like to eat here before the theater . We have done so for years, but it is becoming more difficult and not as satisfying as it used to be.
The quality of food has gone down hill while the price per person has gone up for the Sunday Brunch. $40 per person over the age of 12 is quite ridiculous. Although there are a lot of choices, the taste is just mediocre. The macaroni and cheese tasted sour, the prime rib was very fatty, the desserts weren't good, the ceviche was bland just to name a few. We have been making this a yearly thing and it is time to make new traditions some place else.
