Excellent food, lively atmosphere (can get too loud at times). Location offers great views of Lake Erie.

I am a bit disappointed that the servers push the Wagyu beef options. I even had a server push adding it to a pasta dish. I've had wagyu steak before and it is delicious. I just don't care to pay $139 for a steak on a regular basis.

Hearing great reviews prompted me to make a reservation that was made many weeks in advance to get the time we wanted. It was worth the wait! Great lemon drop martinis and a gin drink called a Watchtower made by Paul were amazing! Our server Jared was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We were not rushed, which was nice as it was a friends get together and we had plenty of time to catch up! Food was delicious…. 2 of us had the Chicken Marsala, one had Jambalaya, one had the Short Ribs, and one had a couple of small plates including a chopped salad and Arancini. All were of good quality! Already made a reservation for September!

Have been here multiple times and it’s better with each visit. There is something on the menu for everyone. If you save room, there desserts are as great as the main course.

This is one of the best restaurants in Buffalo. The food is absolutely superb, service is great- drinks are awesome. I have been here 6-7 times, and it is consistently wonderful. We were just there last night (6/8/2021) and made our next reservation before we left. Thank you Lucia's for being amazing, we soo enjoyed!

There were 2 ladies standing by the hostess table that failed to acknowledge us for roughly 3-4 mins. Then of the ladies finally said something to us and asked if we had reservations. We told her we did and the time and she said she would show us to our table. As we being escorted to the table the other lady that intentionally ignored us told us to enjoy. I said oh now you know you know how to use your words? Once we were seated our waiter Thomas came over and was perfect from being to end. His personality and jokes made the night memorable. Lucia’s is one of my favorite places and besides the small incident in the beginning the night was perfect and the food was amazing as always.

This restaurant is exceptional and that is attested to by the fact you must make reservations 7 to 10 days in advance otherwise you will find there are no tables available for the day you wish to dine. Their food is outstanding and I have a fond preference for the Alaskan Halibut which is absolutely delicious. At the risk of pushing the recommended reservation timeframe to three weeks, you will not be disappointed choosing Lucia's On The Lake and did I mention you also have a beautiful view of Lake Erie? Ambiance, Food, Drinks and Personnel are all 10's. Enjoy! Nelson and Deb Paolini from Buffalo, NY
