Everything was great from the food to the service
Second time in a week we’ve been there food and service is fabulous very friendly owner who is there every night we love this place
DELICIOUS DINNER , JOHN OUR WAITER WAS AWESOME . DEF WILL RETURN SOON .
The diner was exceptional and food was exquisite. We live right close in the neighborhood and always loved Lucia's. I had the halibut and as appetizer, I had the dozen oysters. That was great. Just as a suggestion, if you serve oysters, it would be a plus if you serve them on a flat plate so the juice inside each oyster remains in when served. Currently, the oysters are served at an angle in a smaller tray. As a result, the juice is gone. Serving it on a wider flat plate will prevent this. In any case, congratulations to the chef and service team for a great experience. Thanks again.
Came for an anniversary dinner. Food and drinks were great, but felt like service and ambiance was kind of lacking. Waited a very long time between appetizers and main course; and again for the check at the end. Also, the restaurant itself was very loud.
Everything was amazing!! We had bang bang shrimp to start so good! Then salads (huge and fresh), then we had Jambalaya which my husband is still raving about 3 days later. It was a huge portion so he brought home for dinner next night!! I had Filet, it was done perfectly (med rare like I wanted it) so tender and flavorful! Friends had mega burger, he said it was really good and done perfectly also, and lastly scallops risotto, I tasted that too Wow really good! I can’t think of anything negative about the food or service we received. The only negative I could think of would maybe be that you have to pay $2 for bread, thought that was petty for a nice restaurant! But we all would def go again!!
Always great and consistent food. One of my favorite places in WNY!
Amazing food, great service. A little too noisy. Not cheap but quality and quantity are definitely of great value compared to other $$ restaurants.
4th time there. Already made reservations for November. Everything is so good!
Food and atmosphere was awesome bar staff was great. Waiter was good and attentive but over the top trying to up order on everything too much. Wouldn’t want him to serve us again
The food was absolutely delicious!
Thank you Luke for the lobster linguini!
I can’t wait for my next visit.
The waitresses were good and very persistent
Very pleasant atmosphere tables well spaced attentive server and good food.
Service was outstanding and food was even better. Kudos to Jared our waiter!
50th wedding anniversary I listed it on the reservations and different staff members came over and expressed their well wishes! Nice.
Service was incredible. Food was amazing. Atmosphere was great. Doesn't get much better than what we experienced! HIGHLY RECOMMEND
We started with bread, bang bang calamari and stuffed peppers. The peppers were a little hot for me but were okay. For entrees we had scallops and shrimp spaghetti with crabmeat and lobster linguini with crabmeat. They were so good. Our waiter was very attentive without being annoying. Everything came out on time and was piping hot. Oh and I forgot to mention that I had one of the best long Island ice teas ever! Really nice experience.
Halibut and pork chop were out of this world. Excellent value. Extremely generous portions. Will definitely be back.
As always, everything was awesome! This is our favorite place
Food was delicious as always. Staff was pleasant and followed COVID guidelines
Outstanding meal and experience from start to finish. Jay and his team are among the best in the business. We look
forward to returning soon.
Food was great!! Server was great also
Bang bang shrimp were the best along with the Chopped Salad!!
Pasta wasn’t cooked all the way. Lobster was rubbery and the chicken dish had no flavor
Wonderful food, and ambiance and the view of the lake is great!!!
I have been to this wonderful restaurant 4 times already and loved it each time. Food great. I the only problem I see is the wait to make a reservation. It’s worth it, and I understand the pandemic right now.. we were just saying maybe we should make an other reservation now for the next month. Keep up the good work you are doing great. Hmm maybe you should add on to your restaurant. People seem to love going there and the food.
Birthday! Great view , ambiance, and delicious meal.
Excellent service and excellent food. Enjoyed the experience very much!
Everything was delicious as usual. So excited to finally have a gluten free dessert option with the gf peanut butter pie. Music still a little loud
Food was phenomenal as usual! Thanks to Jay, John and all who made my birthday a great one!!
Well, we so missed going to Lucia's. This is by far our favorite restaurant! Never had a bad meal or a bad time! We were hesitant to sit inside due to the current situation, but Lucia's made is so comfortable with partitions between tables, plexiglass between bar stools. I felt very comfortable! Can't wait to go back. Food is always amazing, and the owner is always visible every time we go there! Paul the bartender is always consistent and friendly. Nice to always see the same faces when we go!
Friendly service, nice water view & very tasty food. Hubby had a 16oz Wagyu steak with lump crab meat and a Gorgonzola cream which he said was superb. I had beef short ribs ...... deliciously seasoned and a sized decent portion. Definitely not budget friendly but I was happy to pay the bill and leave a generous tip we had a really nice dinner date
Great spot for my parents 33rd wedding anniversary. The service was great and the food was delicious. The portion size was larger than expected, especially for the amount that we paid for it. I would definitely recommend the restaurant and will be returning when back in the Buffalo area.
Always fantastic service and food! Service provided by everyone from the hostesses, bartenders and bussers is top notch. I can't say enough about Jess, our server. She continues to provide fabulous service time and time again. We ask for her whenever we dine. Thank you to everyone at Lucia's for another remarkable dining experience. I can't think of a better way to have celebrated our Anniversary.
Always a great experience at Lucia’s! Get the Tomahawk - you won’t regret it!!!
Our first experience at Lucias was very exceptionally good. We will be back!
FABULOUS! After having the Lobster Ravioli two other times we visited Lucia’s I decided to go with the Braised Short Ribs and was not disappointed. So tender and full of flavor. My husband had the Salmon, our guests had the Kansas City Steak and his wife had the Lobster Linguini. Salmon was flaky and totally awesome; the steak melted in your mouth and the Linguini had so much lobster our friend couldn’t believe it!! All in all it was an awesome night! Oh, don’t forget to have the Bang Bang Shrimp and/or Bang Bang Calamari best I ever had...so tender! Great night!!!
Took my husband there for his birthday. Hadn’t been here before so wasn’t sure about the food. Was pleasantly surprised. Food was outstanding. We both ordered a seafood dish and were not disappointed. Both meals came out hot and delicious. Service was excellent. Will definitely be going back. Hopefully soon
Delicious meal, great ambience, wonderful staff. It was a fantastic birthday dinner.
