I love this restaurant, my wife and I enjoy the food every time we come. The service is always outstanding. Our cups are always full with water. The view is great in any part of the restaurant. We love coming here. I try to book every 2 months because the wait is a few months out for a weekend but it’s always worth the wait. Can’t wait to be back for valentines.

The food was impeccable. Best restaurant experience I have experienced in years.. Friends had been recommending that I go and I continued to put it off. I’m so happy I decided to go with a friend. The lobster linguine was so delicious that I’m going to have to force myself to try something new the next time I go. The lemon drop martinis were made to perfection, so much that you have to have two. My friends meal was equally delicious.She ordered the special which was seared halibut with Cajun seasonings smoked potatoes and vegetables. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone committed to consuming the best food Buffalo has to offer

Delicious food, nice atmosphere, excellent service, actually staffed according. I can see why it takes 2 months for a Friday reservation. Just a tad expensive, but nice for a night out.

The restaurant was absolutely beautiful. Our server was absolutely amazing over-the-top friendly and I couldn’t have asked for better service. I’ve worked in the service industry for 15 years and it was the best experience I have ever had at a restaurant.we started with the bruschetta board, a crock of French onion and my sister got a cup of buffalo chicken soup, that was all to die for 🤤🤤 for our entrées I got the lobster linguine, my fiancé got the Kansas City strip with the Gorgonzola sauce, my sister got the tomahawk off of the chefs specials and her fiancé got the pecan glazed salmon!!! That was our first night out after both having children within the last year and a half and it was the best place we could’ve chosen for a night out!!!!
Our server was honestly a tie for 1st with the food !! He made the experience above and beyond . We have reservations already booked for Valentine’s Day and couldn’t be more excited

It was my husband’s birthday, but we dine at Lucia’s regularly. It is always a great meal. It is consistently amazing. We often have Amy as our server, and she is very friendly and knowledgeable of their dishes. She helped my husband chose exactly what he was looking for. He was very happy with his choice!

Our meal was the best. The only thing better than the food was John our waiter. We’re not regulars but he always remembers us by name.
Anyone local that hasn’t been there should go. Great steaks and seafood.

This was our first time there and it was wonderful! Our waitress Amy was phenomenal and very attentive. It was very, very busy which was surprising because it was a very chilly Wednesday night and we didn't expect so many people to be out, yet our service was amazing. We didn't have to wait long for anything and our food came out piping hot and delicious! They had busboys that were constantly coming around filling up water glasses and taking dishes away. The service was impeccable! The only bad thing is it's so popular it's hard to get a reservation! But actually that's a good thing for them!

Third time at Lucia's. No complaints on food. Our waitress this time kept 'upselling' us on items. You don't need to do that at a restaurant like this! Did you want an appetizer? Did you want a side salad with dinner? Did you want to try our xyz drink? Even before my wine was gone, she asked me if I would like another. Asked if we wanted other bread even though we were fine with the bread we had. We had half our meals leftover and were full (we said we were stuffed) and she still gave us the dessert menu and said "you can take it home". Normally I wouldn't care but it was literally every 'stage' of dinner was an upsell. Felt slightly rushed. Food was amazing, per usual. Will definitely be back just hope we don't have the same waitress again.

Good was amazing and so was our waiter John. He was very amicable and had a full knowledge of the food and when I told him what type of wine I wanted to drink he recommended one and it was the best I have ever had. The French onion soup was fabulous and a meal in itself! Even the bus boys were courteous and took dishes away in a timely manner. Loved it!

Made reservations on OpenTable, heard its really hard to get reservations for this place...guess I got lucky! Wanted to try a different place for my birthday weekend. Was very busy when we arrived. We Could hardly find a parking spot. Had reservations for 7:15pm just had to wait a few minutes for a table to open up. John our waiter was really nice and attentive to our table. He explained some of the menu to us which was very helpful. The food was good. I was full off my stuffed banana peppers, bread, and salad by the time I got my entrée lol. Would definitely like to come back and have lunch or dinner with the actual view of the lake.
