As always, a consistently pleasant dining experience.
The food is always good, fresh and the service is about the best in the SB/Montecito area.
This is our comfort food station and they never disappoint.

Lucky's can be a fun evening however sometime the food is just not that great...I had the
filet migon sandwich and it seemed over cooked...and now they changed the corkage fee to $35...it seems just to much especially when locals are trying to get back in the swing of things
after all the horrible events. Probably won't go back for a long time.

The new paint color is warm and inviting and the food is always terrific. It is a bit loud, even at brunch, but worth putting up with for the ambiance and food. The service is usually good.

Excellent dinner menu selection. outstanding service and food preparation. We shared a porterhouse and a whole lobster (shelled) for our main course dinner and it was perfect in every way.

Luckys is one of my favorite restaurants. The cocktails are great. Served shaken chilled table-side. The food is always excellent. Nice size portions. Well presented. Good selection. The ambience is warm and charming with the black and white photos of earlier era movie stars.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.
