Since opening in 1998 Lucques has garnered extraordinary accolades and is now recognized as one of the country’s best restaurants. It's California cuisine with French and Mediterranean influences is served in the warm and intimate setting of the rustic carriage house of the original Harold Lloyd estate.

One of the reasons for the all the acclaim is the Sunday Supper, the night that best exemplifies the original mission of owners Chef Suzanne Goin and Sommelier Caroline Styne, by offering seasonal prix fix menus that re-create the atmosphere of a relaxed family dinner.

Amazing as usual. I had a cauliflower soup that was delicious, an amazing scallops and then a HALIBUT perfectly COOKED. Service was just perfect and the wine selection is great we had a bottle of Barolo

The food at best was...decent. The atmosphere was a total snoozefest. And food too overpriced for what we got- we didn't see the value in it. Waitress and service was great. Regardless- last time at this joint.

Wonderful meal! Timeless decor and lovely vibe. The service was consistent and friendly. The food was all delicious and perfectly cooked. I had the duck breast and my party had the halibut, steak and the ragu. Will definitely be back again.

The food was nicely prepared and presented. I wish there had been more choice in the dishes provided. We were there for a weekday lunch and there were only about 4 or 5 choices. I have always like the food at Lucques, so it was a bit disappointing that there weren't more dishes to select from.

The Sunday suppers at Lucques are a longstanding tradition, and feature a prix fixe menu that naturally limits one’s choices, but is a great value. They offer a terrific wine pairing service as well.

Vastly overrated and overpriced. Appetizers were non-descript (scallop dish was all potatoes and too oily, salad was meager). Entrees were not good (my wife had the short rib, which was mostly fat and gristle (too fatty even for short rib). I had the fish, overcooked and nothing special. Also, the 3.5% charge for employee health care is just plain tacky, especially given the price of the meal, and the reasons posted on their website (we can't make money otherwise) are unpersuasive. 99% of the restaurants in LA can make a profit without charging their customers for health care. If Lucques can't do the same, they should not be in business.
