I wish I could eat there everyday. That’s how good it is.
Service was really bad. A two course dinner lasted over two hours mainly due to the fact that our server would disappear for 15 minutes at a time before we had even ordered.
As usual the food was excellent. Due to several large parties seated in the patio area, service was a little slow but friendly as always.
Seeing a long time friend who introduced me to Lucques when I lived in LA
Cherry and apricot app was replaced with plums. Cherries were dark and sweet, not tart as you would expect in a salad. The dish was more of a dessert. Good, but cloyingly sweet.
Black cod main was a disappointment. Although the fish was fresh and perfectly cooked, the tomato sauce was undercooked, and the grains tasted of rancid oil. Overall, an insult to the fish.
Service was pleasant and prompt. Staff were lovely. Atmosphere was elegant, yet pleasantly relaxed.
Although the temperatures were soaring, the wonderful staff at Lucques did a fantastic job of looking after everyone and making it look effortless. There is plenty of choice on the menu and all of the dishes we tried were excellent. Definitely going to be back next time we are in LA
The service was excellent. The starters : corn soup and scallops were very salty. Entree's were:
lamb and halibut. These were also salty. We didn't say anything until after. They were sorry we
hadn't said anything. They would have offered to remake the meal. The cheesecake was amazing. We had mentioned the salt problem to the server and she had notified the kitchen. It must have worked because the table next to us one person had the halibut and said it was
fine. The manager was very kind to take a little off of the bill. We will go back.
Food was average at best. The service turned really bad when there was a billing issue at the end when the sales tax was way above 10% (LA sales tax is 9.5). Took them 25 minutes to sort out. Won’t come back.
Most everything we had was excellent, but my wife had the Alaskan cod special. She should have returned it, was totally unbalanced. Came in a bowl like it was bouillabaisse, and tomatoes overwhelmed the delicate fish and everything else. Very acidic and tomatoes tasted undercooked. Fish was described as cooked with crispy skin but skin was in the bottom under tomato sauce.
We helped celebrate Lucques’ 20th anniversary with special chefs. The meal was excellent. Suzanne’s tomato ricotta toast was simply delicious. We also both were impressed with the perfectly cooked black cod and porchetta. The plums with the fish was inspired. The wine pairings also worked well. I particularly liked the Vermintino. Service was up to it usual professional yet cordial level including the hell from Suzanne’s children! Congratulations to Suzanne and Caroline on their well deserved success.
We had a wonderful time. It was our wedding anniversary and we wanted to do something special. The price was astronomical ($530 for two people), but having decided to bite the bullet, we loved every minute of it. There was only one dish that was less than perfect--the porchetta, and only because the turnips were undercooked and were attached to their greens which were stringy and very difficult to cut with the butter knife we'd been given. All the other dishes, however, were totally delicious, as were the cocktails and wine pairings, and the service was the best. All the front-of-house people were amazingly attentive without appearing to hover. I wish I could afford to go back more often.
We were visiting from Atlanta and were celebrating.
Everything was wonderful but we were all very disappointed with the dessert course.
We sat on the patio and had a comfortable table with padded bench seats and plenty of pillows for back support. Our server, Sarah, was knowledgeable, friendly and appropriately attentive. The food (as always) was delicious! The soft-shell crab BLT was made with fresh, flavorful ingredients and served while the toast was still warm and crisp. The cod was served medium-rare (per our request) on a tasty bed of green beans; yum!
Excellent food, wonderful service , thoughtful presentation
A little pricey when it comes to corkage. $35 per bottle. Wine list is ok not great based on the price of corkage
Parking valet service adequate not wonderful. Had to wait long time to leave the car and longer time to get the car.
The Sunday Supper was delicious, and our waitress (Isabel) was fun, friendly and knowledgeable. Great selections of French wines. Repeat is a must!
We came early to one of the Sunday suppers, which are a great value for money. Service was attentive and expert but never obtrusive. We decided we liked the chicken paillard better than the fish, but both were very good. The tomato and watermelon salad was terrific. Wine pairings were admirably on-target, and the sommelier provided expert and lucid commentary on each; but I admit that the dessert wine spoke to me less than the others. The outdoor seating, on this Spring evening, was all that anybody could wish.
Great wine list
Very rude front of house young girl
Second birthday dinner in two years; the food is excellent and the service is warm and approachable while still maintaining a professional formality. Sunday supper is a great value for anyone who wants to give Lucques a first try. Never disappoints.
30th anniversary alongside my wife, my son and my son-in-law. Wonderful time.
Loved the Father's Day sunday supper! Sunday supper never fails really. The only miss was the dessert. The sugary merrangue type shell with the vanilla ice cream was a bit too much. A flourless chocolate cake or a chocolate souffle would have been perfect! The dessert knocked the review on the food and the overall review down a star. Christiaan's Negronis were amazing as always! Been coming here since 1999!
Love the atmosphere and decor. Great food and always new and interesting menu.
Highly reccmmended! Esp good for intimate dinners with friends or family.
Food and service were both excellent. Great place for a quiet, comfortable and romantic evening.
We've been going to Lucques for years - one of our favorite spots in Los Angeles. It's hard to know what to highlight...Suzanne Goin's dishes are always amazing: exquisite combinations of seasonal ingredients that are approachable and not too fussy. Christaan's handcrafted cocktails are a treat. The wine selection, by the bottle or glass, is terrific. The Sunday Supper is not to be missed - the prix fixe menu changes every week, taking advantage of seasonal options. The service is terrific from the front of the house, to the bar, and at your table. This year is their 20th anniversary so in celebration, there are some event meals that are sure to be awesome. Finally, the annual summer Rib Fest, with several types of ribs is not to be missed.
Fantastic restaurant. I have eaten at many outstanding restaurants in my life and their food and service is right up there with the best. Great evening. Thanks again.
Could be our consistent favorite spot in LA. We met the owners this time who are delightful! A definite winner.
The food was pretty salty in my opinion and the temp was warm in side.
Excellent as always!!! My favorite restaurant for years.
The short ribs is why we came and it was the best short ribs we have ever had. I was in heaven with the scallop and risotto. I wish it was a full meal and not just an appetizer.
The waitress was very knowledgeable and very pleasant !!! The food was delicious ! It was nice that day and we decided to eat on the patio which had a very nice atmosphere. I had not been there in a while and was happy reminded that it's still one of my favorite places in L.A.
My fiancé & I went to Lucques to celebrate his birthday. The place was peaceful & cozy...we were greeted warmly & given the comfy booth that we requested. The food was absolutely delicious & perfect!! The service was warm but not invasive. We are true foodies & were truly delighted in every way at Lucques!!
Great food, great service and a wonderful patio
Wonderful, as always. The food was spectacular, the wine that our server suggested paired perfectly. Celeb chef April Bloomfield was right next to us, always a thrill to spot a chef in the place one is enjoying.
The food was okay, but when you factor in the price, it verges on the mediocre.
Truly our favorite restaurant
Food was good service fine but nothing particularly special. Not really that interesting or i ventive. The wine was good a Priorat.
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!
We enjoyed the Sunday Supper, which was delicious, beautifully prepared, and classy!
Lucques sunday dinners offer a great value for prix fixed menu that changes weekly. local produce is featured in creative and tasty dishes with a choice between 2 main courses. waiter really know the menu and the customers and provide great service and good suggestions for wine pairings.
Amazing spot for intimate get together or with friends. High end food and atmosphere.
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.
