We ate at Lucia’s for my birthday last weekend and decided to come back for our 3 year anniversary this weekend because we loved the food, staff and setting.

My only issue is the noise level. Tables are very close together, which leads to the high level of noise. Everything else was great, start to the dessert. Bang Bang Calamari and Pan seared Grouper over Farro was absolutely delicious. Wine list is a little weak though.

My Wife and I dined here on Feb. 16, for our Valentine's Day dinner. Everything was fantastic. To start, the ambiance is upscale..all the patrons were dressed for a nice evening out and the atmosphere was classy. The noise level was a little high for me, but overall, the experience was very pleasant. I'm looking forward to going back during the summer and enjoy their patio overlooking the lake. From the moment we entered the door, we were greeted by several individuals who really seemed glad to have us as guests. The level of service at every turn was first rate. This is a well-staffed establishment, with quality individuals. After we were seated, we ordered drinks and some bread with dipping sauces and everything arrived quickly, with the bread being warm and fresh. Then we ordered a cup of the crab chowder as an appetizer and it was fantastic. They served it with a little package of oyster crackers. They didn't skimp on the crab either. It was very good, but the best part of the dining experience was the 1 lb. lobster each of us ordered as our entree. It was out of this world good. My wife and I went to Bar Harbor, Maine a few years ago and visited all the best lobster shacks and even they do not compare to the lobster we had here. It was baked to perfection. I don't use that expression lightly..we've had some great lobster in the past, but this was perfect. It wasn't cheap, but the entire evening was worth every penny. I live not to far from this restaurant, and I'm so glad a quality dining establishment such as this exists. One word of advice, make reservations early..this place is popular. If you have eaten at Russell's, this place is to seafood as Russell's is to steak..both in the level of service and in the quality of the food that is served.

What a great place. The food is amazing and the service is great. The only downside would be the hostesses. We had a 6:15 reservation and showed up and they told us our table wasn’t finished yet and to get a drink. Then a couple walked in and asked if they could get a table and they sat them right down. That rub us the wrong way and she didn’t even apologize. Other than that the place is great.

Lucia's was a wonderful dining experience. A nice variation in food, appetizers, and cost. The service was wonderful with very knowledgeable servers who answered our question on the menu.

Prices varied, but were reasonable for a higher end restaurant (even though they do not sell themselves that way).

Reasonable drink and wine costs.

A new addition to my favorite restaurants.

Celebrated a birthday with friends here last Wednesday. I've dined here many times. Can't recall our server's name...I think it started with a "J". (We were in the middle room, in the corner, near the window. He was attentive, helpful, and entertaining. We were seated immediately by a pleasant hostess, btw. We started with the warm bread basket with dipping oils and butter. Very nice. Entrees were the Filet Mignon with mashed Yukon golds and sauteed greens, the Halibut Caprese special, and the Scallops. Two of us added a stuffed banana pepper. All food was of good quality, well-prepared, and delicious...enjoyed by all. I do wish something could be done about the noise level, but I know management does not appreciate this being mentioned. All in all, another great visit.

The bread was warm and delish... there were four of us and we were very happy with our choices. My husband got a pasta with seafood and he couldnt eat all the seafood. One person got the lagazna and it came with a meatball the size of a softball. There were two meals on that plate. I got the chicken breast and it was very tender. We decided to treat out selves to ONE dessert to SHARE. When she brought out the bowl..I’m glad we decided to share because 4 people could not finish it.

The place is simply fantastic. If you want a raucous time and watch "the" game(any game) seat yourself in the pub. If its quiet you seek, just make sure you request the dining area seating where you are free to enjoy quiet conversations over stupendous food. Jay does it as well as anyone in WNY! Bravo
