This is my favorite champagne Sunday brunch. The one I compare all others too (& none compare). Haven’t been here in awhile and it did not disappoint. Still my favorite.

Horribly crowded and it was supposed to be "brunch with Santa" but Santa only sat in the front before you even get into sitting area - he doesn't walk around and talk with children while dining. Horrible event.

I booked a table after seeing on the website brunch was $40. We get the bill and was totally shocked we were charged $55 a plate. It was a breakfast with Santa that I had no clue was happening and I had no children with me.

We loved our Santa brunch!!! Food was great, servers were great. It was a very warm room. Parking was easy at 10am but was full at noon so allow for time or valet. Very accommodating for kids of ages. Santa was there pre-brunch and the line was super short!! We had a great time.

We were seated at 4:30, placed our order at 4:40. I ordered the pork chop and was a bit surprised when the waiter asked me how I wanted it cooked. I’ve never been asked that when ordering pork. I said it shouldn’t be pink, so we agreed on medium well. 35 minutes later, we still hadn’t been served our meals. The waiter said that pork takes a while to cook, and pointed out that I ordered it medium well. Another 25 minutes passed and we still hadn’t been served. We were assured the play wouldn’t start until everyone in the restaurant had finished and headed to the theater. Our food finally arrived - 70 minutes after placing our order, and 10 minutes before showtime. My pork was RARE, which I believe is not safe to eat. I called the waiter over and showed it to him, asked for a bowl of soup. The manager stopped by and apologized, said she was aware of everything that happened and stated she kept telling them in the kitchen to get us our meals. She mentioned that she knows the pork was “undercooked” and comped our meal. We’ve eaten here three times, always before a show at Drury Lane, and have never had such an experience. But it was such a horrible experience that I really doubt we’ll return. I really wish I’d taken a photo of the pork I was served to add to this review.

The reason I’m giving this a bad review because I went expecting to pay 40.00. To my surprise it was 55.00. The manager said I was notified by phone and that was a lie. I got message today. I did get confirmation notice and I confirmed yes however no where did it say 55.00 The manager insisted she was right and said also we have crab claws which are expensive. Funny thing not one of us 3 saw crab claws. I will give our server a 💯 ++ She was excellent! The manager handled this situation poorly practically calling us liars . We have come to Drury Ln for years but this left me angry and was treated with disrespect

We went to Lucille’s prior to an 8:30 showing of Beauty and the Beast. We were seated promptly, but after that, our server was very slow. Lapses between drink order, asking about appetizers. We did not want any appetizers, but it still took her at least 20 minutes to take our food order. The food came out about 1/2 hour later. It was not piping hot, but had good flavor. For dessert, we were told that they had a vegan ice cream. Since we were celebrating a birthday, this was great! But, after another 20 minutes or so, we were informed the vegan option was not available. We got out of there at 8:20, from a 6:15 reservation. This restaurant was not crowded, so I didn't understand the slow wait time knowing that our waitress knew we had tickets to the 8:30 show. I must admit, I was a little disappointed. It was quite pricey, drinks were expensive, food was reasonable. Total bill was more than I thought it would be. I didnt want to tip the waitress much, but could not be chep about it. She got 20%. If her service was as good as I anticipated it to be, she would have gotten much more. This restaurant is beautiful and very classy, I just wish the service reflected that.

Enjoyed their high tea party for the holiday with freshly baked scones, tea sandwiches, enticing desserts, and assortments of teas you can select. The unlimited champagne was flavorful and marries well with the meal and the decor was breath-taking. What a wonderful experience.

This was called a Christmas brunch and only breakfast items were served. There was only one cook for the omelet station and the line was long. We hardly saw our waiter, we had to ask him for more water/coffee and to take our dishes.

We have been to brunch multiple times and always enjoy it. This time we were unhappily surprised that we were charged $55.00 each for the six of us instead of the $40 per person we were expecting. The waiter told us it was because this was "Lunch with Santa". We booked through Open Table and this was not noted on the reservation page. It just said $40 per person. How were we to know this was a special event if it is not noted on the reservation page? The $90 extra charge was not a pleasant surprise.

Each year we celebrate my husband's birthday by dining at a new to us location. We have each been at the Drury for conferences but never have had the pleasure of enjoying their Sunday Brunch. He couldn't wait for drinks to be poured before he went to see the spread of food. There is literally something for everyone!! There were four out of six that were able to join us and we were all very pleased with the buffet. It is well worth the drive (45 mins) and the money ($55 holiday brunch). Now, to return to see Beauty and the Beast.

Lovely brunch but it is getting too expensive. One of the most expensive ones in the suburbs. It seems to go up $5 a year. Now up to $60 plus tax and tip and now, soft drinks are extra. While delicious and beautiful, I can’t see paying that much per person.

Terrible dining experience! If it were not for the 2 pieces of bread we each had we would have starved. Waited 20 minutes to get our order taken and the over and hour to get our inedible food. What a complete quagmire and utter disgrace. The only redemption was the manager picked up the tab of this slop that arrived to our table 15 minutes prior to curtain! Gah it makes me mad I wasted my evening at Lucilles.
