Lucques has been and remains one of my favorite restaurants. I typically go for Sunday Supper, and have never been disappointed.
Sarah our server made the night! I always say bad service can ruin a meal, but her great service was the high point of the Sunday supper. The bread was our favorite thing, and the little dish of olives and almonds. The potato tart was good, and so was the salmon. The cappuccino with the desert was a delight even though it took a long while to get. Ambiance was great. I’d ask for booth table next time because the two person table had no room for my clutch.
It was impossible to hear at the middle tables :( Portuguese pork and clams needed more seasoning as well, but scallops appetizer was delicious.
Fun night, great waiter and staff. Food was very good.
In the back corner of the large dining room were exceptionally loud and made the evening less than stellar which was disappointing in at the service and food were excellent
Although usually one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants, Lucque was very disappointing this evening. The food was thrown on the plate with much too much sauce covering it and Although it was only half-full in the restaurant, our server rarely came to the table. I hope this is just an operation and Lucque returns to its former excellence.
The food and service were absolutely excellent. We had a tasting with wine pairings. Can hardly wait to return.
The service was amazing! The food was perfect, the flavors were very well paired. The cod was exquisite! Excellent restaurant!
My son said his steak was was his best meal ever. Very friendly staff.
One of my favorites in LA. Consistently delicious food and excellent service.
Great food and great service. I would go back anytime. Patio is perfect!
For a recent birthday lunch, Lucques was simply perfect. The food was classically harmonious, but somehow always felt fresh and innovative. The waiter was helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and effective. The drinks and wine were delicious. Highly recommended!
Food was excellent. Prices are high, but worth it. I'll be back.
Such creatively prepared food never gets old. Cauliflower soup, swordfish perfectly done and ice cream. Even on a rainy night the place was packed
Relatively small lively place with great food. Great ambiance.
Consistently fabulous. The food is always delicious (best pork chop EVER), and the service is consistently spectacular. Sunday suppers are always fun.
Excellent Negroni, attentive service. Our table could have usrd a bit more light
Drove 6 hrs for annual cassoulet dinner. When arrived early, sent to waiting area, could not flag anyone down to order wine (45 min) though a wine menu was on the table. At res. time was offered a table literally shoved up against 4 ft of wall in passageway between bathrooms and the bar. I suggested that I preferred the bar, where seats had been empty since my arrival, and other customers were eating. Seated, place was set with only wine menu, and a confused bartender first told me he was out of the wine I asked about , but then found. Very nice bread service with olives and almonds.
Salad of St Agur, honey, walnuts on a bed of gotta-keep-my-supplier-solvent-thru-winter greens. To call them young is ....relative. And relatives aren't always pleasant. The 6" long fronds of chard were *not* nice.
Cassoulet: OUTSTANDING beans. bland, probably underaged duck confit, greaseless pork confit which helps since it was also pretty devoid of other qualities , truly awful gritty and dry sausage. Topped with breadcrumbs. I would feel very sorry for anyone who had this as their first cassoulet and thought this was how it was supposed to be.
I asked for a wine suggestion, the bartender / waiter mentioned there were pairings - why hadn't he mentioned this before?
At this point my cassoulet dish alone was cleared and a dessert spoon placed correctly. A plate with the gateau basque quickly filled the spot which was still surrounded by the bread service, olives and almonds, a bread plate and so forth. And no fork.
Literally waved my hand to try and get attention, resorted to stacking plates and pushing them to the end of the bar to get someone to come over and take them away and give me a fork which was a waste - I could barely get it through the hard dry slab of purported Gateau Basque.
Final insult, asking for a menu on my way out, saw that pairing of 3 glasses $45 , my two glasses were $44, and I missed out on two I wanted to try.

Had an amazing Sunday supper for their annual Cassoulet dinner. It was delicious comfort food. I can’t wait to go back to try their regular menu. Great birthday dinner with friends.
The 17th annual Cassoulet was divine. Warm cozy and delicious with attentive service. The only drawback was the music choice; very distracting; songs with lyrics are difficult to hear and only add to the ambient noise.
Not only does Lucques have a weekly Sunday Supper, but there are a few annual events that are worth celebrating - one of them is Cassoulet night and on Sunday, Suzanne and her team outdid themselves!! The Cassoulet was the best in memory - not since the first or second year do I remember every aspect of the cassoulet, and every aspect of supper, being so delicious!! do yourself a favor and order take-home servings for another night!!
We were there for cassoulet night, and it was all perfect, as usual.
This was our first time at Lucques for lunch after several previous outings at dinner. As usual, the food and service were impeccable. The staff seamlessly kept up with the demands of our large group. Matt, the general manager, and the entire crew always make us feel so welcome.
been many times, and always loved it. opted for the special on friday which was swordfish. it was disgusting. sorry.
Delicious food, lovely sitting area by fire for cocktails
Very, very nice. A little pricy but knew that going in
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
Excellent dinner. Fine food and cocktails. Great place for dates.
Great staff. Great food and Great wine cellar ! Great ambience
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 wait staff was personable, patient, knowledgeable and efficient. The food was creatively prepared and delicious.
My fav place.
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.
Lovely service was the best part
Impeccable steak and fried oysters
Dessert was lovely
A lovely space and nice staff.
