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.
It was dine in LA night and I did not realize it. I think it is much better all the way around when its on a regular schedule. Its a good restaurant.
Everything was a delight. We were a little disappointed with one of the appetizers (ricotta dumplings) and with the grapefruity dessert, but the entrees were all spectacular and the service was wonderful.
I highly anticipated dining at Lucques, especially after reading about them in Food and Wine. They have a nice story celebrating their 20th year. The food options for the dineLA event were great, starting with appetizers - mackerel or beet salad, the main course of either salmon or lamb shank and the desserts. It was busy, but the service was quite attentive. I had discovered a nice pinot noir from Sta Barbara and they even had Saumur and Sancerre choices for whites. Overall a great experience, worth the drive from Mission Viejo.

We love Lucques! Have been enjoying meals there for 20 years— even with our children many years ago. My birthday dinner was everything and more than we expected (my husband, my adult daughter & I ) and our wonderful waiter had been at Lucques almost as long as we having been enjoying it.
Everything was perfect from start to finish. It was the ideal place for a special birthday dinner. The food is delicious, worldly and comforting. Our server was a pro but also warm. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting. It is uniquely California and specifically LA eatery. A local gem that is relevant without being trendy.
Amazing food, amazing service! Will definitely come back. Our waitress was a very polite French lady who explained everything in the menu perfectly. Wonderful dinner!
Everything was perfect from the time we walked in and were seated until the time we left the service was impeccable!!!
Outstanding food and service in the most cozy, chic atmosphere. This restaurant has been by far my favorite restaurant in LA for the last 4 years.
Dinging rom was cold, food was salty, low quality, meat was stringy, at $211.00 per head excluding alcohol it was a very low value.
One of my very favorite restaurants in LA. Cooking is creative and delicious.
Excellent food and service. The New Years theme was clever and the special menu was delicious. I will go back to enjoy more of what they have to offer.
Our very special recent dining experience on 12/29/18 made our 28th Anniversary one we will always remember. We came here probably 16 years ago for an earlier wedding anniversary and now that we are empty nesters, we wanted to come back. The restaurant was as good or better than we remembered. It is easy to see why you have remained a thriving successful business for 20 years and that your staff has loyally remained. Every detail, from the sumptuous food, ( blue nose bass, swordfish, roasted carrot and beet puree, windrose apple salad) to the impeccable service of your amazing Sarah and the rest of your staff, to the whole vibe was just perfect! We cannot wait to come back. Thank you for our special treatment and for your acknowledging our anniversary on your signature dessert.
Lovely ambiance and service. I am not fond of the entree being served as a mish mosh of protein, starch and vegetable all mixed together. All three of us ordering different things had this. I realize its a trend, but if I was Chinese stir fry I will seek that out.
This place is upscale casual dining. The food was good but overprice for what it was and the wine list was extensive. The problem was getting drinks... It took 15 minutes to get drinks and then we were told they didn't have the specific alcohol requested and the other drink was mediocre at best.
we are always so welcomed by all of the staff. tonight we split the steak for 2 which was so tender & well prepared with he beauty of the meat not overshadowed by the seasoning. it was a great way to spend christmas eve.
Lucques was just what I have loved about it from earlier visits: excellent food, simultaneously elegant and unpretentious, wonderful service. The Sunday supper with wine pairings (and our somelier was wonderful) was delicious. We were celebrating an engagement and everyone joined in. Thank you, Lucques!
It was wonderful
Everything about Lucques was really, really good, but our waitress Isabella truly made the experience more than special. I would request her again!
A lovely, quiet place that puts food quality first. If you're looking for the latest hotspot to see and be seen, this isn't for you. If you're looking for good local ingredients prepared with care and consistency, you'll be very happy.
Hands down my favorite restaurant. Consistently amazing from food to service. It is fit for casual and informal or for a formal celebration. Love it.
Lucques is a classic! Despite all the new trendy restaurants in LA, Lucques is still one of the best.
I specially like the Sunday evening Prix-Fix menu (that's what I had).
The food is solid and always fresh and creative (and a good wine list).
The outdoor patio is lovely during the summer nights.
Last but not least, it is also one of the few restaurants in LA that is reasonably quiet, that one can have an intimate conversation during dinner.
I would recommend Lucques to anyone anytime.
Lucques Sunday Suppers are one of life's great pleasures. Sitting in the cozy dining room with a yummy cocktail, then a delicious dinner with wine flights, and a rich dessert is the perfect way to get the holidays started!
We had a wonderful date night out at Lucques. The food was delish!
fab spot with posh preses
as always we had a wonderful dinner @ lucques. the fresh swordfish was tender and well prepared as were their often on the menu beef ribs. the vegetarian entree was very well executed, a variety of vegetables and grains expertly coordinated. the service was excellent with the right amount of attention without hovering. it made a for a most enjoyable evening.
Classic restaurant with a fireplace, a lovely bar, and warm ambiance. Delicious treatment of traditional California cuisine rather than trendy or flashy dishes. Well trained, attentive staff.
Nice fire to sit by while waiting for our table. The food is always very good. But it’s also expensive.
Well, not sure where to begin... I'll keep it short to prevent a diatribe. I was quite disappointed in the room, I had requested specifically a perimeter room table, it was a monumental Bday which I also mentioned, so I was very disappointed to be placed at a table which was directly in the server multiple pathways Super distracting and you feel in the way with all the traffic constantly passing your table. We moved to another average table upon requesting two other tables and were told we couldn't be sat at the empty periphery tables (only to watch others be sat at them after us) the food was average, I think they need to update a few things, my meal was meh, overcooked... the appetizer was good, nothing special. We did, however, have a wonderful server and he recommended a fabulous wine to us that we Loved! I really wanted to love this spot and have a great experience....however, left disappointed.
Phenomenal food by an amazing woman. Words cannot describe the dance of flavors enveloping my mouth.
Christmas luncheon. Food delicious, as always. Let us linger. Excellent.
Bad service can ruin a good meal!
Lacques never disappoints. Food, service and ambiance is fantastic. We had the dumplings and they were delicious.
This was our first time at Lucques. We went for Sunday Supper. The food was perfect from start to finish. The service was fantastic from start to finish. To top
It off, Suzanne Goin was in the kitchen. We were interested in the preparation of one of the dishes we ate. She graciously came out to tell us how to make it. She was lovely - down to earth and accessible - nice for someone so famous and accomplished. Thanks to the whole staff for a great meal!
It’s been years since my last meal here, and it’s obvious every time why they continue their success. Food, service and atmosphere are all perfect.
Terrific...food, service, ambiance...all wonderful
Went to Lucques after a hair appointment to meet some people for lunch. Food was great, ambiance lovely and the service was superb
Service was excellent! Food was delicious ! Lucques is both sexy and romantic. Perfect place to take someone you love.
The ambience was nice, but the back dining room was so loud it was very difficult to hear the person across the table from me. Table top is far too small. Waitress was not attentive - we waited for very long at every step.
Fish dish was delicious.
Meat items - pork and lamb were too dry.
I think it’s priced too high for the value.
A wonderful way to Celebrate our 40th Anniversary
