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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
