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.

Prompt and attentive service. The menu was diverse and the ribeye was cooked to perfection, no seasoning or sauces needed ! The wedge was also one of the best I have ever had and the Grand Marnier Soufflé was outstanding...we will definitely be back when we are this way again

Dinner here is fabulous. Sunday brunch was good but didn’t thrill like Dinner at Lucky’s. Specifically the Huevos Rancheros was a small portion and just okay. The classic eggs Benedict had shredded ham rather than Canadian bacon. If they would have read the menu they wouldn’t have been surprised.

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.

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!
