Enjoyed our dinner at Olive Lucy's. From the hostess to the waiter the service was very good. Food was very good especially our dessert. The atmosphere was terrific. We will definitely be returning.

Outstanding food, very good quality, tasty and somewhat innovative. Nice ambience and friendly service. Very much recommended. Only recommendation as a step forward would be to have a few even more traditional or ‘typical’ Portuguese dishes added.

Always a good experience! Been a bunch of times. It is a family favorite. Food is always great. And they always accommodate my dairy allergy.

We have been to this restaurant about 3 times already. This last time was a little disappointing. We had an issue with dinner. We ordered our food and literally came to us in less then 1 minute. I am being serious when I say less than 1 minute. It felt like the food was already plated before we ordered. Lost the feeling of made for me. We finished our app and meal in 40 minutes. It just didn't feel personal and that the food was already made and plated before we ordered which we did not appreciate. Probably won't come back another time.

Always have some good food here. First time here for lunch and it wasn’t as good. Calamari appetizer a little small for the $ and don’t know if it was cooked fully. Entire meal for party of 3 was a little pricey. The service is always very friendly and attentive. Will return and recommend but may just stick with dinner.

1st time at restaurant and overall, an excellent dining experience. Open floor plan may cause some guests to comment on the noise. We thought it added to the ambience and experience. Notes: the lobster in the paella we received was over cooked-very dry; Second- the bus staff needs to be a bit more patient when coming to clear the table after each course. They came to clear without asking before we we finished. Third - portion size a bit light for price. We were going to mention to staff but did not have chance before leaving. Overall- very good.
Thanks.

It smells of mold or mildew, the service was awful , there was only one waiter and the food was forgettable. And when we asked the hostess where our food was after being there two hours, she blamed it on the fact that we had ordered appetizers.

The menu is presented on a tablet with a picture and description of each item which unfortunately did not match reality. The Crispy Short Rib Rolls appetizer was completely dried out with a hard empanada like batter, and the Classic Clams Oreganata was served almost like a soup, though somewhat tasty. The entrees, Grilled Pork Chop Lucy and Blackened Spicy Scallops, were pleasantly better and the service was OK. The atmosphere was quiet enough to enjoy our BYOB and we may return, but with lowered expectations.

The food in the service were excellent. a big surprise. My only real complaint was that it seemed like the lighting would dim and brighten and dim and brighten and the music seem to get progressively louder as the night went on which started to force me and my companion to almost yell to each other to be heard. But all the food was fresh very tasty. We had galamad it was as tender as could be. And the garlic shrimp was just garlicky enough and great size pieces of shrimp.

We were seated at 9 pm. A waiter come around 20 min later and opened our wine. Rolls another 10 minutes later so we promptly ordered seeing that it was going to be long increments before seeing our waiting again. We didn’t eat dinner for over an hour after we sat. The steak was tiring to cut after sitting there for so long. Can’t understand why the steak was served with potatoes and then also mashed. Not worth the over $40 price tag. I was really turned off, especially that they did nothing about our wait time.

I’ve been here before and had a decent experience. This was my second visit and I have to say my boyfriend and I decided that we won’t be back. He ordered the Fig ravioli, and I ordered dry rubbed NY strip steak. The ravioli was a very small portion, and was quite pricey for the size at $21. My boyfriend had to eat some of my meal because he was left hungry. I ordered my steak MR and it came out MW, and the quality of steak was not very good. It was very tough, I chose not to finish it. The asparagus Au gratine were not cooked, so I also was unable to eat them. The garlic potatoes were the redeeming grace of the meal. The steak dish was definitely not worth $39 when I could go to Roots and get PRIME steak for the same price. We chose not to have desert as we didn’t want to be disappointed with another dish. Unfortunately we were dissatisfied, and will not return.

This was the 2nd time we have been there to meet family members. The food and service were amazing. Freddy our server for both of our visits was fun and on point the entire night. I apologize for how loud some of our guests were. But the room was very loud as well. So it was hard to gauge. All In all another fun time. Thank you.

I love the food and ambiance of this place. The staff is courteous and knowledgeable, the decor is beautiful and most of all the food is delectable. I have never had a bad meal, even the salads are good. I would recommend any and everyone to eat here. We had the Baby Spinach and Avocado Salad and the Burgundy Poached Pear Salad. For entrees we ordered the Blackened Scallops and the Stuffed Lemon Sole. Both were great choices. From the Owner to the Chef to the Wait staff and even the lovely people who clear the tables --- it's a class act all around!!!
