Outstanding food and menu. The peppercorn filet was the best ever and the Romanian steak was excellent too. We loved every bit of the experience and will definitely return. It is also very easy to get to right off the freeway.

When ever I'm in Santa Barbra I come to Lucky's because It's been my favorite spot for years. Lucky's is always consistant and the vibe is great. The service is perfection, Brenda was our sever and she was spot on with everything. Make sure to call for a reservation it's always busy.

Lucky’s was great as always. We dined there Feb 6, just the second night they were open after the Montecito rain/landslides. They were so glad to be open, especially the waitress. The food was wonderful. We had the petite filets, perfectly cooked, and still more than I could eat. We will NEVER go to Santa Barbara without having a meal at Lucky’s.

We were unable to go due to the mudslides in Monticeto. Also, we were unable to cancel our reservation, apparently for the same reason. We have been before and had a very nice dinner. We were sorry we could not go this time. Hopefully we can go another time soon.

Excellent food! Cool atmosphere but loud. Waitress was efficient but not super friendly.
We had a good time. If we want an excellent steak, we would go back.

Amazing restaurant and cuisine! The service was impeccable. We are extremely saddened to know that Lucky's is in harms way due to the massive California fires of December 2017. We pray for all those residents!

Been coming since week 2 of its opening. Best steaks in town, good sides, and the turtle sundae is a classic! Bartenders know how to make a cocktail, and server Steve did a great job.

We ate there twice in the 3 days we were in Santa Barbara. It is a beautiful restaurant and the service was excellent. We did not order steaks which is there specialty..several dishes were excellent while some were so so at dinner. Brunch was better and the corn beef hash was the best I’ve had. The matzoh ball soup was also great.

Overall it was a fabulous dinner. The service wasn’t Michelin quality but it was good. The restaurant tends to be very hot in the back so take notice before securing your table otherwise you might sweat profusely like I did.

We love Lucky's! We drive from San Diego to spend a couple of days in Montecito once or twice a year. We never come up without dining at Luck's at least once....this trip, both nights!

For us, Lucky’s is a special venue. Delicious steak, ribs, salads. Very comfortable and a bit of a throw back to the casual outside of Hollywood dining. We never miss a chance to dine here by ourselves or with friends.

We were celebrating my husband’s special birthday, and we were seated at table in the corner. It was quiet when we first sat down, but it soon became noisy.
The food was fantastic from the fabulous steak, the red wine sauce. We loved the sautéed mushrooms we ordered to put on the steak. The sugar snap peas were the best I have ever tasted.
The gratis birthday sundae was magnificent!
We were very pleased with the entire meal, although my husband commented how the shrimps were much smaller in the shrimp cocktail than the last time.
