Unable to make up our minds, we ordered the vegetarian sampler and the meat sampler - way too much food for two, but all was tasty. Most remarkable were the collard greens: they were very good, but cooked without any bacon - the best collard greens I've ever eaten.

My husband and I absolutely love this place. Our favorite is the Curry Basil Chicken. I love the atmosphere, the music, the culture and the staff is always friendly. Great for date night, groups and they have a side for the family and kids too. I definitely recommend Lucys

This was a great evening out for our extended family and a real eating adventure. If you have never eaten Ethiopian food there are no utensils, food is pickup with Ethiopian bread (Ingera). The food is spicy and delicious; it is a great evening spent with friends. I recommend eating in the lounge which has low tables and after dinner coffee is a real treat.

Would def. come back!

From the entrance to being seated, my wife
and I were recognized by each employee. Suzanne, manager, welcomed us shortly afterwards. Service was timely. The meal was exceptional.
A most enjoyable dining experience! Highly recommended for anyone wanting authentic Ethiopian food.

Great food as usual. It had been awhile since we had been in and it looks like they've made a few changes in plating and service uniforms. It had a nice crowd for lunch.

Fantastic food and service. It was romantic yet causal enough for family with children. The food was authentic and was spiced to perfection. There was a wide range of dishes to choice from. Exceptional quality, you could tell the food was prepared fresh. I recommend Lucy's to any once that loves spicy, authentic and delicious cuisine. The prices were also very reasonable. I hope they don't change a thing.
