Everything was special including how inventive yet authentic the menu was. I loved the vibe and decor of the whole place. My daughter who has a limited diet found plenty of delicious food options and we loved how tasty everything was. I've never had better Tiramasu and loved the toasted hazelnuts at the bottom. I wished the wine pours could have been a bit more generous; that would be my only negative comment. The bathrooms were very cool and liked the individual rooms instead of stalls.

Went for Brunch on a Sunday and was blown away by how efficient the kitchen was and the decor of the dining rooms. Really spot on. Service was just a hair thin, but otherwise pleasant and correct. Great experience.

While the food was very good, we waited for nearly an hour to be seated despite having a reservation. The front desk did not seem overly concerned that we were waiting for so long. Poor management of the tables. For this reason I would not recommend the restaurant nor would I come back.

Leuca was recommended by a friend, and it outdid its recommendation. We were greeted like old friends. The waiter was professional and warm. The chef and the manager all checked on us...and the food was DELICIOUS! From the warm bread basket, that kept being refilled, to the appetizer to my pasta that was beautiful and a culinary miracle...to the too much dessert of which we couldn't help but eat every bite...everything was perfect. My only regret is how far I live from this delightful place.

We always go to Leuca. This time, the service was poor. We notice there was only one waiter in the whole room, attending all the tables. There was no replacement of bread for my tartar, we were waiting long time for the drinks replacement too. The waiter had no patience to wait us to finish our appetizers ... just complaining because we love the food there and we really want to return

Had to wait 15 min for table to be ready. Then put us next to large table that was extremely noisy. Had to flag a waiter to take our order. Asked for bread. It didn’t arrive.

Food came but not all at once. Forgot my daughters croissant. Didn’t ask us for any further drinks.

One guy was doing great work. Filling up water and clearing tables. The rest of the task were walking around pretending to be busy but you couldn’t make eye contact with them.

Overall very disappointing. We won’t go back.

A lot of hype due to location. The food was simple Southern Italian, no creativity at higher prices then deserves. The neighborhood has far better Italian, over all restaurants Michelin rated to spend your time and money.

Food was good as always but this was some of the worst service I have ever received. We arrived at 1:30 and didn't leave till 3:45 not because we were hanging out, but because they took one full hour to bring us our second round of drinks after we'd already finished eating. It also took 15 minutes to get waters, 30 minutes to put in a drinks order, and we didn't order brunch until 2:30 because nobody was paying attention. And after the wait staff apologized profusely, nothing was comped. And one server even audibly complained about my table being annoying, which was pretty frustrating. Not coming back here, unfortunately.

Amazing food. Supper attentive service and welcoming staff. We came to celebrate our anniversary and as we were welcomed, we received free glasses of Champaign. After a stressful week this place made us relaxed and the atmosphere is extremely romantic. The food is absolutely the best- my favorite was the ravioli. Highly recommend this place for any celebration!
