Valentines Day. They were decorated and it was very festive
Calamari was amazing. Hands down some of the best. However, the pasta was kind of sub par. This is my second time coming here and maybe it was just the Valentine's day rush, but it did not live up to its previous expectation. The mushroom gnocchi was fairly balnd.
Food was not great at all. Wasn't much better than Chef Boyardee. Wasn't worth the cost. Had a problem with where we were seated. The staff believes it is okay to have other customers invade your personal space to the point where they are literally touching you. Manager rolled his eyes at my husband when he asked for the check (we wanted to cancel our orders as we were not having a nice dining experience with the other guy in my husbands lap). They did move us eventually, but not without attitude and then telling us that the guy that was invading my husbands personal space was some sort of celebrity so they didn't want to ask him to pull his chair in a little. *(&$ that!
We've been going to Club Lucky for years. It's always dependable to have a good meal and a great ambience for a birthday or a dinner out.
Fun night of good food and cocktails. Love the ambiance.
We haven’t been there in a while. It was great. We had a family meal with a great variety of food. We can’t wait to return.
Fun place. Delicious food. Very pleasant servers, manager. Honor reservations on time. I’m have Celiacs and have had good luck eating here.
Always a good choice to go to Club Lucky. We were going pre Blackhawks game. We were able to make a reservation. We could valet park but actually found a spot in the neighborhood. Got a great round table for 8 in the middle of the action. Great service. Amazing martinis. Good wine. Excellent food. The bread is outstanding too. Loved it. Well paced meal. Will definitely go back. It’s a favorite. Consistently Terrific.
Go to restaurant especially family friendly! Love it!
Food is consistently good. They have the most amazing bread!
Great fresh food, great service and great drinks; what more could you ask for?
Great neighborhood place. The baked clams were great. Very fresh ingredients. Try the chicken vesuvio. All dishes were tasty.
Service was friendly and attentive.
Crowded but worth the wait
Always love Club Lucky -- food was great -- but wish they had better dining options for a table of 2. The 2 tops seem to either be scrunched against a wall that is an aisle or next to a table with a lot of kids -- or sidelined in the back room which is just not all that pretty. They should add more ambiance to the back room and make it adults only or do something else so that smaller groups can feel more cozy and comfortable. Note that they did have booths and even though we came early and a few of the booths were open, they said they were "reserved," which was disappointing.
Food and service was great! I would recommend.
I was very impressed by this place. The food was delicious. The fried calamari was extremely tender and not at all overbreaded. The chicken parm was also really tender and flavorful. I would definitely go here again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a delicious meal with some solid portions. The cocktails were also delicious.
This was our 1st visit. The kitchen couldn't have been more accommodating, with mixing, matching, and adding ingredients. My pasta with arribiata was some of the best I've EVER eaten, and my husband was thrilled with his chicken parmesan. The other 2 entrees (salmon and a filled pasta) were also well received. Service could have been better, as our drinks took an eternity, though the martinis were delightful. And the 2 year old that was with us got something other than what was ordered for her. Even the Italian cookies we had for dessert were really good. We can't wait to return.
Had a terrific time and great meal on New Years Eve this year! Thanks for having us and can’t wait to come back.
Always an awesome experience at Club Lucky. We had a reservation for 12 at 7:45. They were so accommodating and efficient with our group on a Saturday night during a holiday weekend. Food has been delicious and consistent for years. Our service was wonderful (thanks Jana) and we never had empty wine glasses. They replenished our bread, filled waters and cleared the tables seamlessly. So appreciative of a great dining experience.
Excellent service and good food! Our family thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening!
Went to Club Lucky for the first time. The ambiance, service, drinks and food were phenomenal. The food was tasty, melt in your mouth and not too rich.
Drinks were great; strong. This restaurant is a far drive for us, but I can't wait to return.
Always love this place. Amazing service from the beginning to end and the food never disappoints. It’s a lot of food too! Worth all the money! Love the Christmas decorations as well
Altho a bit late for reservations [extremely bad driving weather] Thomas was amiable and was able to seat us timely.
Appetizers and entrees tasty..cocktails well made..'bussers' very attentive, server a bit less but accomodating
Perfect place for a holiday get-together with friends and family! Great food, drinks and atmosphere!
Stopped in for dinner before going to a musical downtown! We were running late thanks to traffic, but i was able to call the restaurant and they easily adjusted our reservation time.
The food was delicious all around and the service was great. It’s a lovely restaurant, we only wished we could stay longer and order more!
Club Lucky has been an all-time favorite for years and years! I've lived in the neighborhood for 15 years, and have been dining at CL for at least that long - bringing my young daughter there, my friends and family. My Mom requests that we go there every year for our Christmas Eve, Eve dinner [the 23rd]. She loves the vibrant atmosphere, the decorations and of course, the martinis!
Best Italian place in the city! The vibe is lively and the food is exceptional.
This is (was) our go-to place for fantastic Italian food and a great neighborhood location. We’ve been to Club Lucky probably a dozen times. However, this last time, our opinion of the place has changed. Our server couldn’t care less about the speed nor quality of her job. Her lack of concern for her customer was openly evident. The food was simply so-so and this is a marked difference from the usual tasty and very filling dishes. Finally, the noise level in the dining room was quite simply overwhelming. Our party of four in a booth found we could only converse with the person next to us, as it was futile to attempt a conversation across the table. All in all, this is no longer on our short list and sadly feels like it’s in decline.
Good but very noisy music should be turned down some
Longtime fan ! I keep going back for the festive surroundings and FANTASTIC food and service. A definite fave!
Thank you again Club Lucky! We’ve been coming to this restaurant for nearly 20 years. I asked to switch tables on a crowded night and the staff went ABOVE and BEYOND to accommodate but more importantly make us happy. This is why I love this place, it’s like family. Happy Holidays!
Very retro cool bar. Nicely decorated for the holidays. Food mediocre at best.
Red sauce was watered down with no flavor
Manager had an attitude!
We go to Club Lucky a few times a year especially during the holidays. Their décor and martini's were spot on but this time the food was sub par. I had the veal marsala and it was over cooked. I was disappointed to say the least but I will still come back for the atmosphere, martinis, and the meatball salad.
Cold in there!!!
The food was amazing and the ambiance for the holiday season was awesome!
Club Lucky always delights and allowed me to enjoy Italian although I have gluten allergies. The food, service and drinks were on point and as expected, fantastic. My Spaghetti Carbonara was delicious with a nice cream sauce, with thick chunks of bacon and enough for lunch the next day. The bar is nice and cozy, though I didn't spend much time in there as we had a reservation.
The waitress was great, responsive and helpful. Always pleased and will be heading back again.
Bad waiter. Argued with us about a drink and didn’t apologize when the bartender proved him wrong. So much for customer service.
Club Lucky is a long-running restaurant in Wicker Park. Great Place with consistent Italian food.
I have been going since 1988.
This was my second time and boy I should have quit while I was ahead. We started with caprese salads, which were very fresh and tasty despite it being past local tomato season. However, we then waited about 45 minutes for our entrees, such that we had been there over an hour before we got the main meal even though we arrived at 4:30 before things got too busy. Then, the worst happened. The waitress blew the gluten free order, so my guest, who is medically unable to eat gluten, was unable to eat her meal until they brought another dish. So three people had dinner and one did not. The worst. Then, the replacement came faster than seemed possible to properly prepare new gluten free pasta, making my guest so nervous about it that she was unable to eat much at all. On top of this, the waitress first tried to claim it was not her fault, and then barely offered an "i'm sorry." We did not ask and were not accommodated in any way for this major faux pas, as I would expect in a top notch restaurant.
My spaghetti scallopini and my wife's chicken marsala both were very good.
We have been going to Club Lucky for 20 years. We love the atmosphere. The food is rock solid Italian. I always get the Eggplant Parmigiana. Just a really fun place that my entire family loves.
Food and service always great. My friends and I go every year as an annual tradition for martinis, good food and beautifully decorated for Christmas!!!
