Truly our favorite restaurant
The service was amazing. Our waiter, Murio, was excellent and went out of his way to make our lunch great! We loved the food and will definitely go back. We also went to The Larder after we finished lunch (where they sell the great bread, and more, about 2 miles away!) The best sourdough bread ever! Short rib sandwich and fresh fish, salmon, were so delicious!
We enjoyed the Sunday Supper, which was delicious, beautifully prepared, and classy!
Lucques sunday dinners offer a great value for prix fixed menu that changes weekly. local produce is featured in creative and tasty dishes with a choice between 2 main courses. waiter really know the menu and the customers and provide great service and good suggestions for wine pairings.
Amazing spot for intimate get together or with friends. High end food and atmosphere.
An elegant, cozy refuge on Melrose in West Hollywood. Diners can enjoy a comfortable booth with crisp, white tablecloths in the quiet front room with its fireplace, or the light-filled, courtyard with ivied walls. Once while dining at Lucques for a business lunch, I watched as Sidney Poitier walked in and inquired whether the hostess might have a table for one available(she did). The seasonal menu features colorful and delicious organic entrees and salads. One of the standouts in this city.
There are just so many ways that Lucques remains my favorite restaurant in Los Angeles after so many meals and so many years. Number 1! Truly welcoming, knowledgeable, and thoughtful wait staff are the relational foundation that make Suzanne Goin’s outstanding seasonally-driven Sunday Suppers the best dining experience in town. James’ guidance through his inspired wine pairing elevated the meal. I took a picture of my mother during dinner (who’d just flown in from Alaska and who’d never dined there before) in the warm light coming through the cathedral ceiling opening to the sky at sunset... She just glowed with joy and enjoyment...her expression tells the whole story! This couldn’t have been a more perfect Mother’s Day. So grateful! Every bite of every course was divine.
The ambiance and cuisine at Lucques are impeccable. The staff is courteous and attentive. I'm happy to dine there as you are ultimately supporting local farmers, as well as talented chefs and the two amazing women that founded the restaurant. We will be dining again very soon, thank you
The food was excellent, but the drinks on the cocktail list could be improved.
Great service and great food!!! Also a very friendly environment. Will definitely visit when I’m in LA again !
Great dinner. Wonderful service.
This was our first visit and we will definitely go back. The food and service were phenomenal.
Just Awesome! Food was perfect, service was perfect, and the wine selection was more than perfect.
Terrific. Love the service and the ambience. Not to mention the palette was ecstatic!
We where celebrating a friends first performance on stage... we had a great table and we talked at our level and had no issues about our celebration. Staff was great and was food incredible. Only thing I’d like to see is a better pour for martinis other than that bravo.
Sunday supper which is a great deal. My entree the kubota pork chop with collard greens needed to be grilled a little longer and the free were a little tough. Usually Lucques is spot on so the greens surprised me. We were also seated near the restroom when there were many empty tables.
Excellent, attentive, expert service, very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Ingredients were obviously fresh and tasty, very lovely bread and appetizers were great however, altogether the cuisine was not particularly interesting or special it seemed... have had more interesting meals, however everything was well prepared just not a real 'wow' - would certainly recommend for a business dinner but for a special occasion I'm likely to go with something with a little more verve! Sadly i would say the skirt steak was not delicious, it was a big chewy and not well-cooked, which is quite unusual. Halibut was very good.
I've eaten here a number of times, and it's always great
As usual, Lucques left nothing to be desired. A quiet opportunity to celebrate our granddaughter"s birthday. Never disappoints.
After visiting this wonderful restaurant for 20 years, I have never been disappointed in anything we have eaten, the service, or the ambience. Everything is so fresh and delicious, it is always a treat.
I love this place, it's so cute and homey inside, when you walked inside, you will find a cozy fireplace and very comfy seats. We sat all the way in the back where - outdoor area. The service was excellent, everyone was so friendly and we will definitely coming back soon!
Loved every minute! We went for their Sunday Supper so the menu was pre-set (you choose between 2 entrees but starter & dessert are set) and it was amazing!!! I couldn’t get over how delicious our main was. But also the restaurant itself is lovely; the outside walls (and a lot of the courtyard inside) are covered in wines — it’s quite lovely. Our server, Isabelle, was also fantastic. I overheard a different server mention that there are a few regulars that come EVERY Sunday — I can understand why!! Wish we lived closer so could go more often.
This is one of my favorites restaurants in LA, food is great and the service is amazing ! I love Isabelle and Sarah and Rest of the staff is very attentive. I really recommend this restaurant 🍸❤️
I have never eaten inside. The service and food are quite good. I would suggest the patio area. I strongly recommend this restaurant. Clearly a reason they are coming up on 20 years in business.
Food and wine always impeccable. We always feel so relaxed and comfortable at Lucques. The space is so inviting and unpretentious.
Solid upscale dining experience. Food was exceptional.
Loved every aspect of our experience at Lucques! Beautiful space, every dish we had (especially the citrus salad) was so thoughtfully prepared and delicious and the service was outstanding (I think our server’s name was Sarah and she was fantastic). Will definitely recommend and return when we come back to LA.
Great birthday celebration!
Great lunch and business meeting. I knew the food & service were great from previous dinner visits, but this was really great for lunch.
Celebrating a birthday we had the Sunday supper and they happily accommodate our vegetarian diet. The food is always delicious and seasonal and the service outstanding. And the wine pairings are an easy way to try great wines you might not know.
Lucques NEVER NEVER fails. In addition to our own visits, this is the fourth or fifth time my husband and I have taken friends here for dinner -- they always walk away loving the atmosphere, enjoying the food, and thinking that it's one of the best places in LA that they've been. We've never had a single item from the menu that isn't great -- all of the starters are delicious, the main courses are solid and filling, and the specials are usually very interesting as well. Also, it's not super expensive -- with starter cocktails, a bottle of wine, two split salads, four entrees, and a cookie/confection board for dessert it was about $100/person. Can't recommend it highly enough.
Some of the staff were unsympathetic, others were sympathetic.
Both the duck breast and the halibut were outstanding. We enjoyed both on their beautiful, outside patio.
Great food and great wine list in an environment where I can actually HEAR my dining guests. Thanks for being sensitive to the aural experience of dining and not just the gastronomic.
The staff was a little tired at the end of the week.
I've always enjoyed Lucques, but this time we weren't that enamored of the main dish we each had. It was Sunday Supper, so we chose the shrimp dish. We both felt it was very mediocre--the flavors were not that tasty. Thankfully, the salad and dessert were excellent.
Everything was wonderful! What a gorgeous place! I live the ambience, the people and the food was outstanding!!!
The citrus and avocado salad is summer on a plate. Delicious. Perfect short ribs. Lovely time
Amazing, delicious, fabulous service!
Dinner here was not as good as I wanted them to be. The fish was smelly and we needed to send it back and change order to different menu.
