The onion rings are essential!!! Crisp, tasty and easily shared among 5 of us. Every dish was to each person’s delight. I especially loved the sand dabs which were in a browned butter and herb glaze. Service, as always, was impeccable. The spicy mango margarita sublime. Frank Family Zin was quite yummy.
Outstanding. More than an hour drive for us, but well worth the trip. Looking forward to a return soon.
Great as ever, but we over ordered as usual - must stop doing that!
Always a great spot for dining, the lunch menu has lots of tasty new items.
Food was delicious, wait staff pleasant but not attentive enough, and atmosphere very noisy. However we would still return.
Great food and environment
The entire experience was fantastic. The atmosphere is sophisticated, updated 50-60's. The service is always outstanding, attentive without being bothersome. Outstanding cocktails and the wine list is exceptional. The food is perfectly prepared whether you are a meat and sea food lover or vegetarian, with outstanding option. Must enjoy when in Santa Barbara.
First in for an early breakfast. Room was really cold but the complimentary prosecco warmed us up! Everything perfect as usual. Sunday morning will be a favorite!
My wife and I met at the Chanticleer almost 40 years ago. We are local and yet hadn't been back since...not sure why. This was a special evening to us dining with our daughter and her fiancé as we were. We did not mention that when making the reservation but did make note of it to our server when we first arrived. Had I been the server, I would made a bigger deal of it. Maybe that's just me. She was fine and did a decent job for us. Her supporting crew was excellent! All in all, it was a fun evening out but none of us went away feeling that we'd just had a supreme dining experience.
Went early and decided to eat in the bar instead of an empty restaurant. Steve the bartender was outstanding!!!! On top of everything. A bit disappointed with the pours $18 for a drink. Same as a Mastros drink, but extremely weak pour. Overall good, but won’t be back, due to overpriced food and drinks. Up your game Lucky!
Lucky’s is a great place to eat. I recommend the onion rings, or their meatballs.
Awesome. Yet again. Our favorite place for celebrating big occasions with the family. Lucky us! Very Lucky indeed! #montecitostrong
Great food and great atmosphere. Had a lovely romantic dinner with my wife.
Whenever we're in the area we make it a point to have dinner at Lucky's. It is always a treat. The food is superb - the filet mignon is always cooked to perfection (don't forget to order bearnaise sauce) and the asparagus and broccoli are divine served with hollandaise sauce. On our last visit I ordered calamari and a wedge salad to start with and they were very average. I would not order either again. The white tables clothes, the black and white photos that adorn the walls, the lighting and the energy of the other patrons make it feel like you are going back in time a few decades. I just love this place!
As always, the perfect place to celebrate Valentine's Day....a tradition for us. Will be back again next year.
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.
The steaks and seafood .....excellent.
Abalone appetizer, fantastic.
Great for a business customer venue
We had a late night reservation. Our server was absolutely wonderful, and the food was fantastic.
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.
Great service and delicious fun dinner
So glad they're back! Food was fabulous as usual, welcoming staff, great atmosphere. Couldn't be better. 805strong is alive at Luckys.
As always, the food was incredibly tasty, the ambiance is so much fun, and Stephen and Brett were great as always.
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.
was closed due to mudslides shouldn't be taking reservation while not in operation
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.
Always a wonderful meal! We look forward to the next time!
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.
Outstanding!!! We enjoyed tender steaks and other delicious items after our wedding. Our family enjoyed everything! Excellent service as well!
Excellent as always but a little pricey, as always
What a terrific way to have celebrated New Year’s Day for dinner with our best friends, both our guests and the staff at Lucky’s !
It never disappoints, no matter what we have ordered.
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!
Lucky's is the best! Service! Food! Feel! it has the old school feel with cool folks eating. I have been coming to Lucky's for over 10 years. Every time is a great experience, for me and my quests. please come and enjoy.
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.
Enjoyable. Our Server Karen made it special. Thank you
LUCKYS is our go to place 😍 we love to sit at the bar. Bartenders ar excellent. We also like Table 70 as it next to the fireplace 🔥
First time visit on a recommendation and it was better than expected, Service, Meal, Enviroment.
The service is excellent, food delicious and the AMBIANCE is is cordial and relaxing !
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.
