Loved it! Our server was very good, but didn't have the best/relatable personality. I wish it was easier to get reservations. I booked this reservation 2 months ago which is crazy.

We love Lucias the food is always good quality and tastes fabulous, I would recommend if you plan on going make your reservation a few months in advance because it’s hard to get a last minute reservation, it’s well worth the wait . Our favorites are the lobster linguine and the Bang Bang shrimp!❤️

Specializing in seafood and high end cuts of beef, but with a well rounded menu. Several daily specials and chefs creations. The restaurant is adjacent to Lake Erie, looking across Rt 5 with sweeping views of Lake Erie. Expect at least $100 per couple for dinner & a cocktail.

I don’t see what the hype is about this place. It’s extremely overpriced. My Alaskan halibut was so dry, I had to drink gulps of water to swallow it. The bang bang shrimp was good, but there’s no reason to charge what they do. You can order it elsewhere for a lot less. The music was weird and not fitting for the type of restaurant. It was way too loud for one, and a mix of disco with easy listening and modern hits. Music should be quietly playing in the background during dinner, not so loud that you can’t hear your party. The service was good. Our waitress was sweet and attentive.

Delicious food and excellent service but tables are very small so that once appetizers and drinks are served it becomes very crowded. The only other small critique is that it is very noisy in bar and dining area making conversation difficult. They do appear to have acoustic tiles on the ceiling but not effective.

I've been trying to get a reservation here for months and last night, it finally worked out. We had a beautiful view of the sunset and the food was PHENOMENAL- my husband and I split the spaghetti and the black and blue filet and both were perfect. Our waiter was super friendly and knowledgeable, consistently telling stories and making recommendations. Overall, completely worth the wait and can't wait to go back!

Food was amazing as always with good portion sizes. We were a tad surprised that the prices for the sides you can add to your dish skyrocketed in addition to the entree price increase, in such a short period of time. Also the floor vent was coming off by our table.

Amazing meal with a great view. The overall experience at Lucia’s was phenomenal. We chose to sit on the patio for our meal. The space offered a nice view of Lake Erie only slightly dampened by the traffic on rt 5. Server was attentive and energetic. Food was fast and well prepared. Great experience

I brought my partner here for his 24th birthday, and everything was perfect! I recommend going to Lucia’s with a padded wallet & empty belly.

We sat in a cozy corner by a huge window, and the views were great. We ordered cocktails, and they were so tasty! For appetizers, we split the meatball and calamari and got some pesto for our complimentary warm bread. For our main courses, he got the tomahawk steak & I ordered the lobster ravioli, with a stuffed banana pepper on the side (because why not?). The portions were generous and the time between apps & entrees were spread out enough so you could enjoy everything without getting too full, too quick.

This is a great place to enjoy a delicious meal for special occasions - birthdays, anniversaries, and more! I recommend.

Our trip to Lucia's On The Lake was a terrific experience. We were seated right away (we were 15 minutes early for our reservation). Our server, Tom, was exceptional. He was very knowledgeable about the food. The food was outstanding. I had the lobster linguine. Tons of lobster in this dish. Yummy. My husband ordered the Halibut special. He raved about it. The taste that I had was really tasty. The risotto accompaniment was delicious.
They have a great wine selection. We will definitely be returning as soon as we can.
