The French room was very appealing plenty of space at our table. Food was delicious and right temperature and there were many options at the buffet stations. Staff was attentive.

The service was amazing and ambiance is spectacular. I was however a bit disappointed with the food and the lack of allergen notifications. Nothing is labeled with "contains....." or "free of. .." and no one knows. If you have severe allergies do not dine here. Great selection of food however the pastries were disappointing. For the price you pay I would expect fresh baked goods not stale or potentially frozen bagels, croissants, etc.

It was very crowded and busy due to it being a Father's Day Sunday Brunch. Usually the service is much better and noise level less

We came for Father’s Day and the food was delicious as always. Easily made reservations which were confirmed by Becky a few days before and we were promptly seated.

I would suggest implementing a dress code (shirts with collars, no jeans, no sneakers, etc.) I saw a couple of men in cargo shorts, sneakers, and one gentleman in particular who was wearing a cotton tank top with wide underarm holes and his bare chest showing. For the money we are spending, a semi-formal/smart casual dress code is expected to preserve the ambiance.

We ate brunch here after seeing a children's show. There was a long line of people waiting to be seated, and the line queued at 11:20, but they didn't seat until 11:30. Our reservation was for 11:45, and we were at the end of the very long line. Service was spotty, because of the huge wave of guests, and the buffet tables were very picked over before they were reset. Noise level was quite loud, as there were many kids, and parents who did not police them well. Food was good. I recommend, only if chaos is your happy place.

We have eaten here before adult shows at night, and the ambiance then is quite refined, and the food is good, service acceptable.

We had never been to Lucille before but were going to the theater and wanted the ease of not having the hassle of driving to dinner and to the theater separately. We were very impressed by the food, service and lovely music which added to the elegant ambiance of the restaurant. We would have liked to see a bit more variety on the menu, but we will definitely come back!

While this was not my first time at this establishment, it was my first time making a reservation for the occasion. The food is always great, the servers are always friendly, however the customer service is awful. I was called multiple times by the establishment days before the reservation; I unfortunately could not answer right away because I was at work but when I was finally able to pick up, the staff memeber angrily stated that they've been calling me all day and could not leave voicemails because my phone was full. I apologized for the inconvenience but was still met with hostility as I was asked to confirm the reservation. Once I did, I was rudely asked if I was aware the price per person was $40. I was extremely taken aback about the question. My family was offended by the question and it completely changed our perception of the management of the resturant. We will not be coming back.

Brunch, fruit was fresh and the trays were filled promptly. Pancakes and french toast seemed pre-made and under cooked, not freshly made and tasted flavorless, Sausage was also under cooked. Drinks were not refilled nor were we asked if we needed anything. Definitely will not waste time and money by repeating this experience.

The atmosphere at the Drury Lane Theater is lovely. The music volume didn't inhibit conversation. Our waitstaff was pleasant, professional, and efficient. The food came out sooner than expected. They typically cater to the crowd dining before the show, so have things timed well without making the guests feel rushed. The food was very, very good - well prepared, well seasoned, and cooked properly (not over or under). We are looking forward to returning.

For the money, the brunch is not worth it. The price keeps increasing and potatoes, mac & cheese, veggies, rice, etc. were not warm.

Had brunch buffet after taking my grandchildren to the performance of Seussical the Musical. The food was very good for a simple brunch buffet- there was something for everyone with plenty of fruit and well-prepared foods and the make-your-own donut station quite impressed the 7-year-old. I am always happy with Lucille.

We usually come every Mother’s Day. This time it seem a lot more people. When we first went for food like salad and burchett the plates were almost empty. They did not seem like they were refilling the food like other years and the price keeps going up. I don’t mind paying more if the quality stays the same but I can’t say it has. We were talking and thought maybe next year we will go somewhere else.

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about my Mother's Day Brunch Buffet experience on 5/13/18. It was memorable for myself and my entire family so much so that I will be planning ALL my future Mother's Day Brunches at Drury Lane going fwd. The food selection, presentation and flavors were marvelous. The entire staff was friendly, courteous and extremely attentive to our every need. Despite it being a busy holiday event, they made us feel like we were the only ones there, ensuring we were well taken care of throughout our stay. Honestly...I can go on and on raving about my experience. Just very very pleased and delighted over all. Thank you Drury Lane.

My water smelled. I had that problem last year. Went there 2 years in a row for Mother's Day but will look for a different place next time. They had a carving station this time with the turkey and mashed potatoes but they were lacking in the additional lunch entree items that they had the year before. Our server didn't come back to refill our coke and water. Seemed to want to give us our ticket and be done with us.

Lucille at Drury Lane needs to add new food items on the buffet. We are so tired of mixed cauliflower and beef roast. How about green beans, corn or broccoli ? A pork roast would be a nice change. How about fried chicken? It's always the same appetizers too. Adding salad greens and vegetable toppings with dressing sound wonderful too.
