We highly recommend Luke's! It's been under new ownership and is now a place we frequent often, especially since we've found the menu changes up with what's in season.
Such a disappointment after fabulous meals 6 months & a year ago. Steak was overdone, mussels were cold and overcooked, service erratic. Had looked forward to calamari which we remembered as enjoying a great deal. Missed the pepperoncini rings and breading from before--got bland batter this time.
Overall dining experience was excellent, the menu is a bit pricey for what you get, but I must say the steak was one of the best I have had in a long time. Will definitely return!
We were a party of 4 and one of the steaks was a little too well done. Meagan came out and offered a replacement and it was perfect. The table was cozy and private in the bustle of the dining room. Great meal!
Steak was excellent, service was great! We had a great dinner.
The food was delicious. I took some home and enjoyed the meal a second time.
Great food and atmosphere. Chose this location for a special dinner and was not disappointed.
This place is great. You can get a great steak and they have an extensive wine list. The staff is very professional and friendly. The food was cooked exactly the way we ordered it and served to us quickly. Our waitress was very helpful in suggesting items on the menu and very knowledgeable.
Luke's is not like it used to be. The food was pretty good, but i liked it before the change of hands. I may go back, but for the price, I'm not convinced it's worth it. Not only that, but it was date night and six kids were sat near us. Don't get me wrong, I love kids and these kids were exceptionally well behaved, but it sort of ruins the mood. It just wasn't as romantic as we would have liked.
Come on new owners. Let's have some affordable wines!!! $70 per bottle? Really?
For a neighborhood steak place in a strip mall? You're not Elways. Let's get some decent-priced wines. Food is great. Service is great. We love Centerpiece Jazz. Please have them more than once a month. Did you see the crowd on 3/29? Packed. But do us a favor and give us more of a wine selection. We don't hesitate spending money at Luke's. But we don't can't find affordable wine!!!
The food was wonderful! They were very short staffed so everything took a while. Our server was very nice and apologetic and the food was worth the wait.
When you want a steak the way you like, Luke's knows how to prepare it. The overall cuisine is unexpected for a suburb restaurant. No shortage of satisfied diner . . . including me once again.
Only drawback was the limited options for dinner on New Years Eve. Food and service were Great!
My wife's birthday dinner. Greeted and seated promptly. Drinks and all courses served in a timely fashion, all staff very courteous and professional. Food was very good. Very enjoyable experiences
our steaks were exactly what we ordered and SO tender and well seasoned
Food was great, service was excellent John was a pleasure. The new owners are doing a good job. We will be back!
The prime rib was fantastic. The restaurant staff were very careful about not serving me food I was allergic to.
Food was very good
We were a little nervous because we read negative reviews about the new ownership, but we were pleasantly surprised. The steaks were delicious, way better than the last time we went (with the previous owners our steaks were overcooked). The restaurant was busy and it felt like they needed a couple more servers working. Our waiter was very good and friendly, we just had to wait to get his attention numerous times because he was rushing from table to table. It was a little loud because it was so busy, but we had no problem hearing each other.
We sat for 15 minutes waiting for a server to acknowledge us, this was after asking 3 different employees passing by our table that we would like to order a glass of wine while deciding on an entrée. We were told that the server just got 3 to 6 tables at once so was very busy. Too bad for us. One of our party ordered the salmon and another ordered another fish dish and both of them were extremely overcooked. Not really the greatest food at all.
We enjoyed our meal, but felt the tables were to close together. Noise was loud.
Food was excellent when we go it. Service was slow and our server was inattentive.
The food and the service were both good but the ambience was non-existent.
Not Happy. We have been to Luke's many times. The service was terrible. We were seated and given bread and water and never saw our waiter again. We were patient for 20 minutes. Then left very disappointed. SO sad.
I made a reservation at Luke's for my husband's birthday. When we arrived, we were sat in the bar area next to the kitchen. There was live music, kitchen noise, and people standing around the bar talking and laughing -- not the quiet, romantic steak dinner I wanted. Our server was actually the bartender. If you go to the trouble of making a reservation in advance, shouldn't the restaurant seat you in the dining room?
We ordered the shrimp cocktail. The menu said the shrimp were served with a papaya cocktail sauce. The sauce was something mayo-based and tasteless.
I ordered the tomato basil soup. It had globs of something in it. It looked like the "skin" that forms on the surface of the soup had been stirred into the soup. There were also pieces of tomato skin, which was surprising because the soup had very little tomato flavor. It also contained a lot of cream for a tomato soup.
The one redeeming part of the meal was the steak. My filet was cooked perfectly, well-seasoned and juicy.
New owners took over 2 weeks ago - lots of changes to the menu and nowhere near as good as it was. Very disappointed and unlikely to return. Unfortunate as it had always been a favorite
I have eaten a lot at Luke's through the years. And I was so impressed of the new owners. What a fantastic evening. Service was great. The wine list was wonderful I enjoyed the ow we taking time to ask us about the food. I can't wait to go back Again
Food was good and service was excellent but it was a bit priced for the meal.
We have been dining at Luke's for several years. We heard it has new owners and we're looking g forward to dinner. Unfortunately the experience didn't meet our expectations. Dinner was cold and the service was delayed.
Won't be back.
On the brunch menu, there were at least four selections not available, that the waitress kept coming to our table to tell us, so there was a very limited menu, otherwise, all was very nice
The service was slow, how ever the servers had to many tables to cover effectively. My spouse's food was fine. Mine was not. The stake I ordered was way over cooked the I had order it. I did not get a chance to reorder. The servers did not get time to recheck our table . Also I never saw a manger/owner visit any table.
We walked in expecting the same to receive the same service we had in the past. And found out they are under new ownership as of Nov 3, 2016. Not the same place any more. Felt like we where in a low class establishment paying for expensive food that was not that great.
We have been going to Luke's for many years! It is always high quality food and personable and caring staff. Bob Myers is an awesome host!!
Very friendly staff from the moment we arrived and throughout the meal. Food was good, fairly priced. my wife had salmon and I had a rib eye. Special requests were accommodated with a smile.
This neighborhood restaurant is fantastic, outstanding steaks! Great atmosphere. We will definitely be back.
I had a12 oz ribeye. It was a very thin cut and loys of grissle. My wife had the small primerib and said it was no flavor and tough. Everything overpriced for the value. We will never go there again.
Great meal, service and atmosphere! Will certainly be back and recommend to friends and family.
Overall everything was ok. Steak was good, but the rest of the food presentation just seemed a bit lacking, given the price. First time visiting, was expecting more given the prices listed for meals.
Their steaks were very good, but the meat could have been prime instead of top choice. The value is questionable for this grade of meat. It would have been a real bargain for prime.
Great Steaks! Ambiance is good, I would like to see some Ahi Tuna on the menu. Other than that, Fine occasions to get together s..
