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 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.

Everything was fantastic! Best swordfish I have ever had. Fabulous wine pairings. The only little issue for me was the lightning made reading the menu difficult. Will return and have made many recommendations.

We went for Dine LA. An absolutely wonderful menu
I had the steak tartar that was beyond flavorful. The Lamb neckbones, rarely seen on a menu were a standout. All finished with a tarte tatin. I highly recommend this restaurant during and after Dine L A

We went for our anniversary and they took such good care of us! From a welcome glass of champagne to nice conversations with the manager, and ending with a sweet wish of “Happy Anniversary” written in icing on our dessert plate, our visit was a delight from start to finish. The food was superb, complex flavors in bold combinations - for example the steak tartare was served on a tiny slice of potato. Just imaginative and divine. We’ll be back.

Everything was lovely.

My one negative comment is if you have a 6 PM reservation, & you arrive a little early they keep you waiting outside even if it’s cold and the maître d’ is a little rude. Also the windows are black so it almost appears as though the restaurant is closed. My husband thought it was closed.
Rather than seating us, the maître d’ herded us towards the waiting area or the bar, even when I said I preferred to be seated. (Our friends had not yet arrived.) He explained incongruously that our table would be needed at 8:15.
It was an unpleasant start to a very pleasant evening.
