Food was good, maybe for a first time I expected too much from the way others talk. The service was excellent, the view of the lake was great. A little too packed and a little too loud for a nice dining experience. Not sure if they are going for fine dining or casual neighborhood hangout, but would try again.

Excellent meal, service and ambiance for a fun evening out with friends. Unfortunately under the current circumstances of New York State's surge in wages and the price of food and gas prices, the food was very pricey. We love coming but it won't be as often as we like.... I hope your restaurant will last under these conditions.

Our waiter John was great, upbeat and full of energy. My wife and I celebrated our 5th anniversary and the food was great. My wife really enjoyed her scallops and I loved my Kansas City cut steak. I would definitely go back hopefully to take in the view from the rooftop next summer.
Not a huge deal, but it was on the louder side, but that did not take away from experience.

I think our servers name was Kate. All I remember is she had the most gorgeous eyes and just had a baby. She was beyond wonderful. The dinner was out of this world. I had the filet and it melted in your mouth. Everything was perfect!!

Went for the lobster ravioli as I have a tough time not getting the scallop linguini . It was fabulous. Generous lobster portion on top and red pepper sauce was just right.

First time being here after hearing everyone’s amazing reviews about it….. well they were all correct. It was absolutely fantastic. Charlene was our server and was an absolute doll. She was so energetic and her recommendations were spot on. The food was delicious! The four of us were extremely satisfied and this is on our top 5 list now. I can’t wait to go back already!

I wish I could remember our waiters name, but man did he provide exceptional service. Made sure we had what we needed made very good recommendations and asked what we liked with our meals and shook our hands afterwards, which caught my wife by surprise.
The food was extraordinary! My wife and I split their bruschetta platter which was a meal on its own. Each individual item had its own bold flavor. When our mains came they were cooked to perfection! I ordered the tomahawk steak and my wife got the braised short ribs. Both packed a punch of flavors and just hit that special happy place button in my stomach. Would highly recommend this place to anyone for a special occasion or an any day occasion spot.

We were very fortunate to snag a table for 2 on extremely short notice, because the availability is usually out over a month in advance. It was one of those rare times that everything wasn’t perfect: The halibut was way overcooked. Without missing a beat, our waiter John had a delicious piece of fish back in no time & even comped us each a glass of wine for the inconvenience. John is a true asset to Lucia’s!
There is one bit of information to be aware of if you are hyper-wary of contracting Covid: The restaurant was packed, & aside from a plexiglass divider at the bar, there appeared to be no standard protocol in place (mask wearing, lower seating capacity, etc.).
We’re fully vaccinated, & in retrospect after 3 days now it looks like it was worth the risk.

Everything was excellent, id give it a 9.7/10. My only holdup was ordering my filet done medium. I'm not knocking it at all, just personal preference I like more pink so I'd go medium rare next time. But even done medium, it was melt in your mouth good. The bang bang shrimp and stuffed hot peppers were out of this world. Definitely will be back and highly recommend !

First of all our waiter Thomas was outstanding. Not only was he polite, quite knowledgeable but he was fast and efficient. He was so nice and really took the time to chat a bit even though he was quite busy. The food was all of good quality. We will be back again sometime. We made sure we kept our reservation that we had made 3 months in advance.

I couldn’t be more thrilled with our experience at Lucia’s from start to finish. I made a booking error when selecting our reservation but the Lucia’s staff was friendly and accommodating (even last minute on a Saturday evening). Our server, John, was great. He was knowledgeable on the whole menu and eager to give personal suggestions for a variety of tastes. The food itself was exceptional and portions were generous. In regards to dessert? I have no words to describe how delicious all of our dishes were. 12/10 recommend Lucia’s to anyone looking for a wonderful local dining experience.

Everything was excellent! Our party of 4 all had different seafood entrees, and they were all delicious. Generous portions too. For appetizers, we highly recommend the fresh oysters and the charcuterie board.

So looking forward to risotto, but it was undercooked and gummy! Scallops were tasty, however. Over priced for 4 scallops.
