If you are from out of town and coming to the Santa Barbara area, make your reservation now… hard to reserve a table a week in advance at Lucky’s

I celebrated a birthday dinner with friends who live in Montecito. Our wait staff were friendly and very attentive. Our server, Fern, was delightful and came over regularly to check on us. What a great place to dine!!!

Lucky’s is always our first stop when we visit from Chicago. Their food never disappoints and there’s always something wonderful to discover on the wine list. When in Montecito, definitely make time for Lucky’s.

The food & service was outstanding! Unfortunately we had to sit outside because there were 2 large parties inside. It was incredibly windy but the heaters helped!

Pricey, but always great food. Service has slowed due to having doubled capacity (indoor plus outdoor seating). Still love the place!

Great brunch

I would add that the young lady seating us was a bit hostile when we requested a shady seating. I cannot take direct sun and require a shady seating. She did move an umbrella into place which gave us partial shade but would not seat us at a different table with complete shade. We ended up asking a waiter and moving ourselves. The wait staff were lovely.

The food was fabulous. We each had a filet, cooked perfectly, and we shared the delicious potato skins. It was a birthday so we were served a sundae. It was a very special evening.

Loved the vibe of the restaurant. Very disappointed in the Sand Dabs meuniere. no flavor whatsoever. We mentioned it the waiter and he said yeah it is a very light fish. When we asked for extra sauce he brought a ramekin of plain brown butter. No lemon or parsley in it. When I brought it to the waiter's attention he said "that is why we give you the lemon" ??? Very odd response for a high end restaurant.

We have been to a few restaurants since the pandemic hit, almost every restaurant has slow service, lower wait staff, and and are inattentive....Lucky's is the opposite, they are on top of it! Well staffed, very attentive, and the food is great!!

We came to Lucky’s for my birthday dinner and had such an amazing experience. From the moment we arrived, and through the course of our dinner everything was perfect. The Espresso martini was delicious, and our fillet was 10 out of 10.
Thank you for making me feel special on my birthday. What a beautiful restaurant and worth every single Penny!!!!! Definitely coming back

Service was excellent. Food was disappointing considering the restaurant is supposed to be above par. The New York pepper steak was not special. Sauce was disappointing. No flavor. The Swordfish was like "prefab" instead of fresh fish. Weird. The warm brie salad was mediocre for $20. The Onion soup was fabulous. Our cocktails were incredibly good. ... although very expensive. The wine was overpriced as well. We won't be back except maybe to the bar.

Wow. Salmon Benedict was nothing short of spectacular - in fact, the best we’ve ever had. I say “we” because my foodie wifey and I ordered the same thing. And glad we did because it would have been tough to share. We can’t wait to go back.

Our dinner at Lucky's was good, but underwhelming. They were extremely busy and service suffered bc of that. The food was also just OK. Ambiance was nice. Overall experience didn't meet our expectations.

I brought my very grouchy father to dinner and he was quite rude to the wait staff. The wait staff, in contrast, were pleasant and deft and seem to ignore my father’s rudeness. But, the dinner was just not happening. My cousin’s steak was overcooked my prime rib was terribly overcooked. Neither of us dared to say anything about our steaks since my father had been such a bother. Been here many times, but it’s not worth $625 for overcooked dinner for 4. And my cousin’s wife only had a burger. Not going back.

Great experience. The swordfish tacos were very disappointing. Expecting pieces of fish, not squares of fish. Boring prep overall.

Our waiter Emmanuel was excellent and my friends burger was excellent.
