waiter needs to keep overselling to a minimum, he was sort of annoying.

We went to Lucia’s to celebrate Mithers Day. It never disappoints from the atmosphere, service, drinks and food. Amy is our favorite server and she is always welcoming and makes great suggestions. Do not hesitate to go here. It’s well worth the drive.

The service was excellent and the food was good. My dish, (the braised ribs with smashed potatoes and asparagus) was very salty but the presentation was lovely. My mother's dish was the linguine with shrimp and scallops. The scallops were expertly cooked but the shrimp was tough. The New York cheesecake (made in house) was perfection. The prices here are pretty high. When I pay that amount, I expect the design and atmosphere to be built into the price. While the front window does give a lovely view to the lake the interior wasn't anything more than what you can find at Home Goods.

The bang bang calamari was the best I have ever had of any kind. The Chop Salad was also delish! I highly recommend the watermelon margarita, too!

I'm sorry, it was the worst experience in 55 years of going out to dinner on our anniversary. The people have to talk so loud to hear each other. Talking is one thing, we were sitting right by the window and I could here the man sitting close to the restroom.
My husband enjoyed his beef stroganoff, I had lobster linguini, too much lobster not enough linguini. The tail was delicious, the lobster in the pasta tasted fake. I'm sure I can find another restaurant to spend $120,00 in.

The food here is a little on the pricey side, but for the money, you will get an absolutely incredible meal. We got the filet mignon and it was out of this world good. Even the green beans were nicely charred and the potatoes were perfect.

Highly recommend if you are looking for a special evening out.

Our dinner was excellent! Lucia's is one of our favorites in the Buffalo area. We had a great high-top table in the bar. For an appetizer we had the Bang Bang Calamari which was so good. Dinner entrees were the Lobster Linguini (one of the best menu items), Jambalya, and Salmon entree. Everything was spectacular as usual!

Birthday celebration. Not thrilled with the Shrimp Scallop Linguine or the Lobster linguine. The sauce had a watery fishy taste. Rest of dinner was good. Would probably try again, but order something else.

Of the four dinners ordered, one was considered excellent. One person ordered the short ribs which were tough and hard to cut with a steak knife. I’ve eaten at Lucia’s many times and a friend orders the short ribs and they are falling off the bone, but not these. The dinner was sent back. Two at the table ordered Lobster Linguine. The lobster on top of the dish looked like a mangled mess. Again, I’ve seen that dish many times before and never came out like these. I don’t know if there’s new kitchen help but this meal experience was disappointing.
