Great bar, wonderful staff! Get those skinny onion rings ( although a bit salty)

Luckys is always stellar. The only thing anyone could possibly complain about is the pricing. It’s not that it’s not worth it, it’s just expensive. But again, it is worth it 100 times over.

Lucky’s is a fantastic dinner spot. My fiancée and I went there for a birthday celebration and had the most delicious dinner. We started with the meatballs which were delectable and then had delicious steaks for dinner. I had the ribeye and she had a Romanian steak that was marinated in garlic. With the steaks we chose the peppercorn and Béarnaise sauce. Both of which were incredible. The jumbo asparagus with hollandaise is a must. We had a great time, our waitress was very attentive, knowledgeable, and enjoyable to talk to. We will definitely be visiting again soon!

Service was very slow. Took a long time to get bread at the beginning and check at the end. Small dining room was cold . Dining room manager should have caught that before anyone was seated in that area. After a couple of misfires, temperature was eventually made comfortable. Food was ok but not exceptional. The experience was not high-value given the high prices that are charged.

Bret was very knowledgeable and friendly. Service was great but the kitchen was slow. The lag time from cocktails to dinner meant our feast took a lot longer than we planned. The Grand Marnier soufflés were spectacularly good!

Whom ever is making the sauces needs to go to culinary school asap. They are not on the level of everything else in the restaurant. The hollandaise is inedible

When in the area we always make time for Luckys. A nice blend of classic steakhouse and elegant dining experience. Great food and service, relaxed and pampered ambiance. On the pricey side for steaks but a great place for a special occasion or date night out.

Sitting out on the street in a tent didn’t have the same classic ambiance we had expected. Heaters were sparse and I had to eat dinner with my coat on.
Aside from that we enjoyed the meal and company.

I'll say, we must have hit Lucky's on an off day. We had not been in for lunch before and with the holidays fast approaching and my Mom in from out of town decided to give it a try.

The food was ok, but the service was a bit off. The onion rings arrived to the table a bit cold. When we told our server he seemed perplexed and could only offer to take the onion rings back and warm them up. (?) He would also disappear for long periods of time.

There was also a pesky large black fly in the room. Kept landing on the table. Obviously, you can't control the bugs with the doors constantly opening and closing but it lent to an overall lackluster experience.

We will be back, but only for dinner.

Thanks!

My wife and I split the large New York strip, medium Dash rare, and it was excellent! We also had a side of mashed potatoes and a side of creamed spinach space Dash space also excellent! My wife had some type of martini and I had the Ernest Hemingway drink, both were excellent! Amanda, our server, was also excellent!
