We were a couple (on our anniversary) and were seated inside toward the entrance. Shortly after we were seated a group of six businessman came in and were seated right next to us. Unfortunately, we needed to move, there was no way to not have their conversation spill over into our evening. Things were nice in the back room. The food was just ok. My $90 bone-in ribeye was good but way too much food. We could’ve easily shared it but the server didn’t suggest it. Lucky’s is a good restaurant but Caruso’s (at the Rosewood Miramar) easily blows it away. In fact, I think Caruso’s is certainly the best in Montecito if not Santa Barbara as well.

Visiting from out of town and made the reservation well in advance. Opted to eat at the bar rather than getting dressed up and paying $200 to eat on the street. Food was pretty good, but it’s crazy that only locals or otherwise connected people get seated inside. We have eaten here a few times, but probably won’t go back.

Always outstanding. Even better now with outside options, although it was my friend’s first time there for his birthday, so we sat inside for the classic experience.

Lucky's service, unlike other restaurants nearby, is excellent. The wait staff were all friendly, helpful, and accommodating. You feel as if you are at a five-star resort. The food is excellent and two members of our party ordered dishes off the menu and they were happy to oblige. Lucky's is our go-to restuarant in Montecito. Although prices are higher than other similar places, Lucky's is worth it!

Probably the best steakhouse experience I’ve ever had - and I’ve had lots of them. Wonderful Lucky’s cocktail to start, scrumptious crab cocktail, spinach salad just like my wife makes for me, and that pepper steak…oh my. I’ve had steak au pauvre in lots of fine Paris restaurants, but this beat them all. Finally, just the best waiter. Informative, fun to work with, attentive but never pushy. A real professional. Overall just the best possible birthday dinner party.

Lucky's is a must in Montecito. The food is spectacular. The hashed brown potatoes with gruyere are the most ridiculously delicious thing ever. They make a mean martini. Steaks are fantastic. I will never go to Montecito without hitting Lucky's.
