    Terrific meal and service. Creative menu and excellent quality ingredients without being drowned in oil! Delicious vegan options which we really appreciated. Server was very attentive but left us to enjoy our dishes. A little loud for us on the bar side but we got a reservation at the last minute so can’t complain.

    Upscale restaurant with unique farm to table entrees and small plates. Have never been disappointed in their menu or service. Also great bar/bartenders with specialty cocktails.

    Our meal was wonderful, and the service was great. But, Lucky doesn't know what kind of restaurant it wants to be. Let's blame on it COVID fog, but when they "reimagined" the place, they messed-up big-time. Since then, they have been quietly reintroducing the old menu items, such as the fried chicken (which is great!). However, the place is still decorated like a cheap Asian restaurant. And when we were there, the music was straight out of a 1950's-themed diner. I made a reservation for Friday night the day-of. That used to be unthinkable for Lucky. It's time for them un-reimagine the place and restore it to its former glory. Replace the weird Asian-inspired art, bring back charcuterie boards, retain the great service, bar tenders and cocktails and, for God's sake, never lose the Cube. As for our meal, we did the pre fixe with wine pairing. The salad was perfect, the black-eyed pea fritters were delicious, the brussels sprouts were tangy and charred just right, the fried chicken was great, as always, the pork chop was delicious, and the wine pairings good. The food is great and, don't get me wrong, I like being able to get a reservation at the last minute, but I want Lucky to thrive. Figure out who you want to be and then be it. Just don't be that weird Asian fusion tapas thing you thought you wanted to be. That didn't work.

    Great Vibe. Fabulous bar scene, good food and our server, Monet, could not have been any better. Wish there was more variety in food choices, but what we had was tasty.
