Leuca is an excellent Italian restaurant with a kitchen that knows what it is doing. The restaurant staff is quite professional and welcoming. They not only welcomed me back, they also asked if we would like to have the same wines that we had on our previous visit. Now THAT is service. The one unpleasant note of the evening was outside the restaurant's purview. The restaurant is down two flights of stairs below sidewalk level. There is an elevator that goes from the lobby of the hotel to the restaurant but it was out of service. That posed a problem for us, as my wife really does need the elevator to get to the lower level. The sour note came from the hotel staff, who seemed uncaring about the situation. However, it did not detract from the overall excellence of Leuca and the enjoyment of our meal.

The service was polite, friendly and knowledgeable, from the host desk through each person who took care of me over the meal. The food was really well prepared. Not just good-for-a-hotel-restaurant, but really solid skills in the kitchen. I was very happy with my experience. Thanks! JB

Food is incredible. The service leaves a lot to be desired. It took the waiters 25 minutes before taking our order, on a not busy Sunday morning. The chefs didn’t prepare all the table’s meals at once (this was brunch, not tapas) so some people had to wait for 10+ minutes without food while other people in the party enjoyed. Food is delicious but this is the same experience I have every time I go to the restaurant.

Leuca was outstanding with their service. We were rushing from our elopement and showed up 15 mins late but they were so nice about it and surprised us with a free glass of champagne. The food we ordered were amazing and table service was great! Everyone was so sweet! They gave us complimentary sorbet to finish the evening and it was so refreshing. Thank you for making our already special day even more special.

Third time there — was confused by service’s insistence that the entire order go in at once when the restaurant was still pretty empty

Can't say enough good things about this place. Initially trepidatious based on the mega-size and touristy feel, the place truly over delivered. Food was exceptional and portions large (home made pasta was crazy good). Service was prompt but not fussy and expedient without being rushed. Room was buzzy but not noisy. Server provided comped pasta dish from the chef which was extraordinary and we would have easily paid for it as a main course. Wine choices solid and not crazy over the top price wise. Scene is a little Jersey, but otherwise a great choice (especially for groups) for delicious food and a nice time.

Great for a special day! The brunch menu had some really good plates to share and their special pork was more than enough for our party of 7.

The service was also outstanding and the atmosphere led to a beautiful evening.

Leuca never fails to deliver. As usual, our dinner was excellent on all levels: service, food, ambiance, overall quality. The William Vale Hotel hit a home run with this space.

Food was fantastic!! Service was outstanding!! Not only were they highly accommodating to a woman in our party with mobility issues, they were highly receptive to or rushed timeline as we were heading to a concert immediately after. Everything from A to Z was perfect! I will be back!

The service was so bad. It was kind of shocking. They sat us 20 minutes late. Wouldn't bring bread or anything until we gave them the entire order. We had an an allergy at the table and the server didn't check in once to let us know what could or couldn't be eating. Took an hour between appetizers and entrees and they brought the pastas out with the entrees which were supposed to be a mid course. For a place of this caliber and at this price point that level of service feels kind of unacceptable to me. Food was good, but when the overall experience is that lacking its just very disappointing.

Outstanding dining experience, I can't rave enough about the duck! The Sommelier was fantastic, gave me the perfect pairing for our main course. Extremely friendly staff all around, great ambiance, would recommend Leuca 100 out of 100 times.

Everything from start to finish was amazing. Waiter was very nice & attentive. He definitely knew the menu very well. Tina app was amazing, great flavors & texture combos. Both halibut & steak entrees where solid. Well prepared and paired with tasty sides. Chocolate bar for dessert with gelato was the perfect sweet ending with out being too intense. Over all 5 stars and praises to the chef
