Lucy's on the UAA campus, is one of Anchorage's best kept secrets. The food is consistently cutting edge, fresh, and beautifully presented. (Because the chefs and wait staff are students, you will experience a high end meal at a discount.)
Lucy's is known for hospitality and attention to detail. From fresh flowers and starched white linens to the house made rolls and complimentary appetizers. Wait staff are exceptional. You are greeted warmly at the door and service is prompt, friendly and attentive throughout the dining experience. One feels pampered when surrounded by professionals who have a passion for quality in all they do. Lucy's easily rivals any restaurant in the city.
Just go ... great food and great experience. Fine dining provided by University of Alaska Anchorage culinary students and faculty. Limited hours and days but so worth the special planning.
Lucy's was great as usual. The menu never disappoints nor does the cooking!
Lucy's is always a good place to go and visit. It is a very leisurely lunch, minimal background noise. Food is always creative, and desserts worth saving room for.
We enjoyed knowing the food was prepared and served by the students of the culinary program at UAA. We also expected an interesting food experience. Many of the items were beautifully done, tasty and well plated. That being said, all was not perfect. Fortunately there is a comment card provided for feedback and we gave ours willingly. I look forward to returning again. Thank you culinary students and chefs.
We are never disappointed at Lucy's! Tremendous food with a constantly changing menu. Great value.
What a fantastic find!! The food was wonderful and the service excellent.
Absolutely delicious! It's hard to believe that students made these amazing culinary delights. UAA is producing outstanding culinary chefs!
Good as always. The menu this semester is particularly good - so hard to choose just one entree!
Lucy's is always a great place to meet friends, and catch up. the food is good, and the choice always surprises people the first time they visit. I like to bring people who haven't been here before. The atmosphere is relaxed, and it is easy to catch up on each other's lives. The apricot, sponge cake roll the day before was maybe the best dessert I've had at Lucy's. I usually have chocolate, but this was wonderful.
As always, the students working the restaurant at Lucy's have come up with another great menu. And the teachers have done a great job at showing the students how to run it. It's always a pleasure and a treat to eat at Lucy's.
The crab salad was probably the best salad I have ever had. There were entire pieces of king crab. Half a perfectly ripe avocado sliced and lettuce with multi colored cherry tomatoes. With a mystery delish dressing in just the right amount. Perfect! For dessert I loved the hand made truffles with the creamy white insides with a citrus flavor. I will definitely be back for more!
I enjoyed the experience of having students preparing and serving food. As a parent of a student at UAA I must say I love this school and think everything about it has been excellent and this is his second year. The food prepared by the culinary students was delightful. The salad was loaded with a variety of tasty veggies. The meat was cooked to perfection. The risotto was also perfectly cooked. The server was very attentive. The dessert bar at the end was an amazing touch. Prices are half that of a regular restaurant. My girlfriend and I were tickled. The only request I have is vegan options, gluten free options and nut free options too.
The food was 5 star and value was unbelievable.
Overall a great lunch spot with friendly efficient service. The vegetation entree was more like an appetizer size dish. The dessert bar is a great deal and delicious. We like coming here for special occasions. The food is creative and well prepared and the quiet ambience is ideal for conservation and relaxation. Take your time here.
