What Insiders Are Saying
No, it's not a bowling alley in Times Square. It's the 25-year-old Keith McNally restaurant that's way more fun than Balthazar.
Hate to say this, as I returned to try Lucky Strike after years of not eating here, but the experience was extremely disappointing. To start with, I had a confirmed reservation for 3 on Open Table and the restaurant told us Open Table only had us in their system for 2. I showed them my confirmation for 3. No worries, they were pretty nice about it and said they would solve it. In about 15 minutes they got us a table for 3.
The place is lively, very loud and has a good vibe. Unfortunately, our food was terribly prepared and most of it inedible. None of our requests on food preparation were followed even though the waiter said it was no problem at all. We sent some food back that was prepared incorrectly and it came back to us just as bad and incorrect as the first time....so we smiled and just didn't eat. We eat pretty clean and simply with no fried food....this is not the place for that. You are probably ok here if you just want a cheeseburger and fries but they can't go beyond that well. Unfortunately, I will never eat here again...which is a bummer as I like the atmosphere and I live a block away. Very sad.
Great food, great service and great atmosphere..
Great food! Server was awesome! Fun place pre theater.
Such a fun spot, discovered it while shopping in SoHo. Great bartender and waiters. Everyone there was so attentive and the food was great!
Loud, service lousy, food mediocre.
Cosy place with good food and nice atmosphere. We choose The grill salmon and the tuna. Very good! The playlist was very funny full of 90’s hits!
A fine mix of French and American cuisine. I came here for a girls lunch with my co-workers. The service was a little slow, but our waitress was nice enough. The nicoise salad with tuna was good. All in all it was just an alright experience, but I heard the happy hour from 4-7 is really great. Would go back for that, otherwise I would pass on returning.
Love this Place. Used to go here all the time, but moved out of area. It’s back on my radar and will be back again soon. Food was outstanding!
Really cute casual spot. Very good for a casual date or chill dinner with friends. I was there on Sunday night so the vibe might change on other nights but a great casual spot
I've enjoyed Lucky Strike for at least 20 years and it's always been a gem. The food is consistently excellent and it's great for dinner with the kids or late-night drinks with friends.
Great SOHO spot for lunch. And a innovative and delicious cocktail selection.
We came in right as they were opening and it was a lazy Sunday - so we got the space to ourselves for a while. Moderately priced, but no brunch drink specials so no pitcher of mimosas or 2 for 1. But the food was good.
Food was good—it was a little loud, but enjoyed the experience!
Luis was fantastic. We shared brussel sprouts, steak frittes and macaroni gratin. All were fantastic. Small menu, reasonable prices and great food and service. Can't ask for more!
Very loud energetic bar area in front of house. Wine was ok, food was good.
Great little find - we had a burger each and sat at the back. Really great service, and not rushed at all. Generous portions.
This is restaurant is in SOHO, the place is busy, energetic. The noise level is high, it was hard to have a conversation. Appetizers, entrees, and desserts were good. One of our servers was excellent, then they switched in the middle of our time there, the second server was confused and gave us the wrong information when we asked about the ingredients of the desserts. The food was good, but not outstanding, pricey for the quality.
Great waiter! We really enjoyed his relaxed and helpful attitude The food was terrific and the chocolate flourless cake unforgettable!!
Lucky Strike is a must go for us any time we're in NYC.
The food is great with unusual and well prepared selections.
We usually go for brunch or lunch.
Great food and service! Loved the atmosphere
We ate a minestrone and an apple crumble for dessert. It was all good, served fast and well.
I wish I could give a full review but we were never seated! I called the restaurant to let them know we’d be tardy for our reservation (out of service trains, etc.) and they said they would hold the table. When we arrived they said we would be seated in 10 minutes. An hour and forty-five minutes after our reservation time they gave us a free plate of calamari at the bar. We were told that the party at our table had paid over an hour ago but hadn’t left yet. We waited 15 more minutes before vacating and grabbing dinner at the Mexican place next door. Several parties floated at the hostess station. I can only imagine they were in a similar situation. Such a shame!
I had been meaning to visit Lucky Strike since they moved from their original Mercer Street location for years and years. It is a fantastic French bistro and bar. It features great steaks, classic cocktails, and great energetic atmosphere inside a 19th century restaurant space (same layout as Papatzul next door). I'm happy to report that Lucky Strike is still a reliable classic. And I will return again and again.
Geweldige ambiance en lekker eten tegen faire prijs.
Lucky Strike is a total classic—honestly, you can't go wrong here. It's also an exceptional value.
The room is loud. The tables are close the ambience makes you feel as though your in Paris.....and I love it!!! The food is good and always consistent. This Soho gem has been around for awhile and still going strong. The staff is friendly and courteous. It can be very noisy at times, but it’s soooo charming who cares. It’s my go to spot when I what to meet friends and can’t decide where to go.
You should not expect 5 star dining or 5 star food going to Lucky Strike. This is a place you go if you're hungry and there's nothing else around (which in NYC is a rarity). The food at Lucky Strike is mediocre & nothing to write home about. They have a pasta dish that is very good but loaded with salt & cream (which is probably the reason why it tastes so good - the dish is the Rigatoni with sausage). Our server was gruff but got the job done - there isn't a hostess so it's a bit confusing trying to sit down. The worst part about the ambiance are the two tops on the right hand side of the restaurant - they're crammed up against one another and it's very difficult to hold a conversation. I found the steak frites to be pretty bland in flavor but the prices are decent. I guess you get what you pay for! Overall, I won't be returning unless treated. The front of the restaurant is much cuter than the back, there are no windows in the back of the restaurant so it feels stuffy.
Lucky Strike is right in the heart of Soho, was able to adjust between 6-10 people as the reservation kept changing (from our side) on the day-of, is the same owners of Balthazar, had good food and great service, and was a perfect middle of downtown good bet where not much can go wrong (which it can with a table of 10).
Always bustling, but the staff is so friendly. Delicious food, great ambiance. A fave.
nice local everyday long time spot. love it. never changes, always the comfort food.
The waiter was incredibly nice without being overbearing, the food was perfect, and the overall dining experience unbelievable. I love this place.
We made our annual pilgrimage to celebrate our anniversary. The service we received was so-so, my drink was left empty for 30+ minutes, and my meal came out extremely over cooked/burnt. Will wait til next year...
Restaurant was great but they didn’t have our open table reservation -_-
Service was very slow, we were waiting for every steps of the meal from the table to the check. The salmon was undercooked. Tables are packed in the dining room and no coat racks so you are all over your neighbors. Other than that, this was a very fun lively dinner location. They did also give us a complimentary glass of champagne while waiting for our table.
This was the second time my lady and I dined at Lucky Strike and we had tried Balthazar on numerous occasions also and we are very pleased with both venues ! Food is excellent , service top notch, drinks are excellently prepared! We would not hesitate to recommend or return to either place!😊
My girlfriend and I were completely satisfied with everything at Lucky Strike! The drinks were well done and our menu choices turned out to be perfect! We would go back anytime! We were just as thrilled with Balthazar! Thank you!
Met some friends for lunch. We live in the neighborhood. Nothing fancy but food is good. Seats along the back wall a little uncomfortable. Chairs at tables better to sit at. There was a birthday party so a bit noisy.
Amazingly good humored and totally accommodating even as our guest list doubled from 6 to 12 at the last minute on a Friday night. The food is scrumptious for vegetarians and Carnegie’s alike and the dessert was excellen. The staff was super gracious while at the giving New York realness. This place is classic and it’s good to see it hasn’t changed in all the years I’ve known it.
This restaurant is just too noisy, unless hollering over noise is what you crave. Could not hear my friend two feet away. Although the waiter was very friendly and helpful, the food was average. The chef seemed to think that ordinary, undercooked green beans were a good substitute for haricots verts. Definitely not for foodies.
