I had not very pleasant dinner experience there. Sommelier was very nice and aknowleble. Waitress was horrible. I wish I remembered her name. We ordered whole chicken for two. When we asked her for ketchup, she said ”we don't hv ketchup it's a Italian restaurant ” with an attitude. I'm in a Service industry myself. I don't think that's the way you talk to your customer.
Beautiful space. The menu was interesting and had a nice variety for brunch. Service was an issue — our server was very pushy and service felt rushed despite the restaurant being totally empty save for four tables. At this price point, one expects more refined and thoughtful service.
Halibut cooked to perfection! We loved the three dip appetizer especially. Nicely spicy beet / citrus salad. We would return!
I like this place! But today’s service is so bad!
Always the best
The food was fantastic as was the ambiance. Will definitely be back for special occasion meals.
There were some strange moments service-wise. Generally our server was not guiding us through the meal and instead had a “how could you not know this” demeanor.
Was amazing, the plates from pizza, to salad too desert. Was spot on, our drinks were amazing. An waiter/tress was great.
Great Mexican food - very minimal, modern design/ambiance with typical street taco fare as well as interesting twists. For example, we had a battered broccolini starter that was amazing - very fitting in this little corner of the Italian part of Williamsburg.
Firmly mediocre. Decent food. Decent wine. Spotty service. Good atmosphere.
Night out with my wife celebrating anniversary. Didn't disappoint. Food was great, albeit a little unsurprising. Service was absolutely perfect. Slighty pricey but not out of character.
Came here for dinner before an event. Ambiance is great, but service was middle of the road. I’ll be very honest, every dish we ordered was fantastic. You will thoroughly enjoy what you order, but you’ll have to wait for it.
That’s seriously where Leuca has to improve. From the moment we ordered, our main entrees took over an hour to come out. Our drinks took 20 minutes too. Service was somewhat attentive, but filled with excuses about the delays. It was a Friday night, but it wasn’t packed. The bar wasn’t filled either, so it’s unclear what caused the delays.
As another reviewer mentioned, the service does not match the pricing or ambiance of this restaurant. That's the unfortunate thing because once everything does arrive the drinks are great and the food is amazing. Unfortunately, it gets ruined by the lack of service or what I assume is the communication between the staff and the kitchen.
Service does not match the ambiance and expected price level. Orders were not correct, had to get check fixed, portions were small. Waited 45 mins for pasta dish- similar issues with tables around us.
Had great expectations for this anniversary meal. The service was pretty appalling. After we finally put in our orders for drink and food together, we were served our appetizers about 20 minutes later, before our wine. Our plates were cleared and we waited over one hour for our entrees to come out. About 45 minutes into this wait, we had to pull someone aside and inquire. We were placated with salad, told our food was "next" and continued to wait. Entrees were lackluster. We declined dessert in favor of leaving more quickly to enjoy what was left of our night, and were brought a complimentary Tiramisu which prolonged the process of paying and leaving even further. Left after 10 pm for a 7:30 reservation. Multiple complaints at the tables around us, for similar issues. We won't be returning.
Wonderful place to have a celebration, however it was my friends birthday and they said ‘they got me’ when I wanted to send over a surprise dessert to her (thinking it was a complimentary cake / ice cream) but it came to a surprise on the birthday girls check in the end!
Also service was a little disappointing, water was asked to refill 3 times as service was so slow... ordered tea for dessert and didn’t come until the check came....
I’d go back again for the food, but everything else needs to improve for such a lovely and pricey place.
Service is sub par. Food was good - not great. Nice atmosphere.
The food is amazing!!! The only major issue, is that they were very under staffed on a Saturday night. We were constantly waiting for things because the waiter was serving almost 20 other tables. I applaud him for hustling, and we was super great, but he just had way too many tables to serve, so ultimately the service was slow.
Great experience, food and service!
Located in a vibrant part of Brooklyn
We went to Leuca for dinner to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We had a cocktail each and both were delicious. The appetizers, entrees and desserts were all spectacular as well. The smoked beet and citrus salad app was amazing, I absolutely loved the unexpected heat from it. I ordered the black shell pasta with shrimp and calamari and my husband ordered the bass with English peas...yum! I will be going back for sure!
We greeted nicely and the waitress commented that we had a birthday to celebrate. We wanted to order an appetizer to start but were told it would be better to order all at once because the kitchen was busy. Weird, but alright. While others in the restaurant got their nice birthday fireworks we were left with, well nothing. We did not get the snacks that the guests at the table next to us got either.
Great meal but left disappointed. Maybe they can't handle the stress very well.
Husband's 60th bday; came for lunch. Our server was friendly, gave him a whiskey on the house and brought out a dessert with a candle. The food was delicious!
Welcoming staff. Delicious food. Perfect service. Beautiful location.
I went on a food-for-half-price deal, and it was the fifth of the nine restaurants recommended by Time Out New York that I had tried. This was the first clunker. What a disappointment, beginning with the drinks, one of which was absurdly sweet after we were told it wouldn't be, and the other came "up" when it was supposed be on the rocks. My wife and I shared an asparagus entree, which looked nice and tasted okay, but the two main courses we ordered seemed amateurish in their execution. Not terrible, just ordinary, and the spaghetti portion was so tiny as to be laughable. There seemed to be many people walking around, and they seemed to want to try hard, but the service felt amateurish and cold. An all-around disappointment.
Wonderful experience for Mother’s Day brunch. Unusual and intriguing menu options, which makes a return visit much more likely. Service was at turns too intrusive and neglectful but it did not impact an overall great experience.
Food was great. Wood burning grill food was terrific
We went to Leuca for our anniversary dinner and we were so happy with how all-out the staff here went to help us celebrate. It was a wonderful experience and the food was exemplary (the burrata pasta was incredible). We'll definitely be back here!
Great location for a business lunch
Lots of space between tables and lots of natural light
From pastas to omelette’s to pizza
Plenty of choices for everyone without being to heavy
Service was excellent and we never felt rushed .
valet parking made travels effortlessly
Business meeting went well too
ALWAYS A SOLID EXPERIENCE. JUST KEEP DOING WHAT YOU ALL ARE DOING....
The octopus & eggplant appetizer were delicious but the portion was on the smaller side (perhaps b/c we split it).
The spicy spaghetti with tiny Manilla razor clams was absolutely spot on.
The $65 misto (mixed) lamb special for two was not my cup of tea. It consisted of grilled lamb chops, lamb spareribs and lamb sausages on a bed of puréed carrots with orange oil.
Staff was very pleasant, very eager to assist.
Management provided us with 2 deserts on the house. Delicious chocolate candy bar with gelato and the pistachio cake is always on the money.
fantastic spot for dinner close to home and I'll probably return.
Service was almost too attentive by different staff members but then would forget to bring things when asked. Food was nothing outstanding. It was good but no need to return. The space is gorgeous and I loved the sofa seats.
Everything was great...except the unexpected $35 valet fee! There should have been a sign and/or verbal notification upon arrival (although I did call earlier in week asking if valet was offered and was told yes it’s $8!) At least offer a discount for eating at Leuca and have the ticket validated by hostess!!
I was surprised by the waitress at the beginning. A little bit rude.
Wonderful food as always. We were delayed an hour from our reservation time and the management really took care of us which was much appreciated and a classy move.
The food was outstanding. Very impressive sommelier too
Came with friends from out of town; great food just let down by service...Waiter was pleasant enough but did seem a little sure of himself when taking orders, only to then forget one of our mains....Also neglected to tell us that the mango ice cream was off the menu when we ordered it and just blindly assumed we’d accept / not notice the pistachio ice cream
Seriously everything tastes so good. From cocktails to appetizers to entries and of course dessert, nothing disappointed me. Everything tastes phenomenal. I will definitely come again soon.
Disappointing experience overall. Food was very average, I would describe it as ‘Italian themed’ at best. The service however let the place down completely. There were plenty of staff around but there was no coordination, nor any attention to the customers, I had to ask to clear away our used plates; the wine appeared after the starters, etc. The sommelier did not have a clue about the wines she talked about so much so I was embarrassed on her behalf. Finally, irritatingly you find yourself in almost complete darkness in the downstairs section of the restaurant and, without exaggeration, can hardly see what is on the plate in front of you! Visual enjoyment is an important part of dining experience and was completely missing. With so many superb choices in the neighbourhood I would not recommend Leuca and will not visit again.
Beautiful place and food was good but the service sad to say was terrible. Our waitress was pretty nonexistent...the entire time we were there and it was not busy at all about 4 tables with people...we asked for water and glasses several times which took about a good half hour to get. Ordered a bottle of wine they poured a round and we assumed it was done so I asked when we were ordering dessert and turns out there was enough in the bottle for a second round. Would have been nice to have had more with our dinner. Bathrooms were a disaster.
