Outstanding dinner service on Father's Day. The food was delicious! This was our first dinner out since the beginning of March and Lucky 32 took great care from the moment we booked our reservation to the obvious precautions implemented in the dining room and service to keep everyone safe. Thank you Lucky 32!

We were very excited to try Lucky 32 on a recent trip to Raleigh. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the staff was excellent. The food however was disappointing. We ordered steak and salmon. It was just okay. I am not a great cook and I have made each dish better tasting! Both items just were bland. No seasoning at all! The plates were presented well and looked delicious but just were blah. We were celebrating a special occasion and were very disappointed.

Enjoyed a nice Saturday evening dinner with some out-of-town relatives visiting for the weekend. Promptly seated, with attentive service. Restaurant was very busy so the noise level was a little louder than I remembered. Great seasonal menu selections. Food was great, portions enough that we took some home for lunch the next day. Overall a nice outing.

We have been going to Lucky32 for a very long time. The food and ambiance was excellent as usual. This was the first time we had a waitress who was average at best in terms of service, attitude and communication. Since it was my wife's birthday that was somewhat disappointing.

We had Cobb and Chicken salads, the seasonal soup and salmon with horseradish sauce. All were outstanding which is not surprising since we have never had a bad dish at Lucky 32. The servers were great at explaining dishes and keeping an eye on us while not being intrusive. It did get a little louder as the lunch hour cranked up, but not too much of a problem. I also want to commend the staff for holding the door for our handicapped friend as she exited the restaurant. Can't go wrong here!
