Very overpriced wine and food. It was difficult to find a good bottle of wine for a reasonable price. The calamari was good but the one sauce just tasted like spicy mayo. Tuna tartar and gruyere potatoes were the best things we ordered, which is sad considering this is a streak house. The fillets seem like good quality, however they are super charred so all you taste is char. Their sauces were just ok. If your steak is good, you don’t need a sauce, but these needed sauce since they didn’t have much flavor aside from straight char. I ended up bringing my $50 fillet home to my dogs. Definitely the worst steakhouse I have ever been to. Super disappointing for what you pay!

For the first time ever, the service was terrible. I always enjoy Lucky's, but this time I brought a friend and it took forever just to get his onion soup starter, and then a very long time again for our eggs benedict to arrive. I have always been able to get the table I ask for, but this time it had been given away. So...bad experience this time, but have to say that every orher time (and there have been many) has been excellent.

This is a MUST when you visit Santa Barbara. An old established locale with great food, great service. We LOVE this place. We never miss an opportunity to dine here-under any circumstances!

The dinner was what we have learned to “expect” from lucky’s. Dining outside is fun and they have done their best to keep it that way.
Steaks perfectly cooked, the best fried onions in the world and an immaculate Dover Sole. I asked for it grilled and on the bone with extra lemon and viola - it was perfect, The grilled artichoke is always a winner (I prefer it warm with the vinaigrette).
If you like mixed cocktails, this is the place to try one. I prefer the French 75.

For a high end steakhouse, I found the food good but not great. However, we had a great waiter and a nice table outside (during cover). If you don't want to eat inside, let them know when you make your reservation.

We were seated promptly at a nice table on the patio next to the fireplace which was great for a cool evening. Our waitress was prompt and the staff always had our water full and the table clean. Our waitress also made excellent food and wine recommendations which made for an exceptional meal that was prepared to perfection. Highly recommend Lucky's for a great date night meal!

We’ve been here many times through the years. This and the last time we’re just okay. For a place at this price point, I believe that the service should be much more professional in demeanor and function. We had to ask several times for items. Food was simply ok, nothing special. Used to be better.
