An unbelievable dining experience! The Lobster Linguine was just outstanding and with a stuffed pepper on the side, it was heavenly! Every time we eat there we are amazed!

We took some friends there for the second time. The last time was about 4 years ago. We were pleasantly surprised at the remodeling that had been done! The food was just as delicious as it was last time we were there! Our server was a delight, as was the hostess who seated us. When we were leaving, our friends said that they can't wait to come back! We couldn't agree with them more!

Everything was great. Only one small complaint. Two of our party had shrimp and lobster risotto and the shrimp had the veins hanging still on the shrimp in the dish. Was a little disturbing but otherwise awesome meals. Thank you.

My husband and I went to Lucia's on the Lake for my birthday. The hostess immediately greeted me with a "Happy Birthday" and we were seated at a nice table with a lake view within 5 minutes on a crowded Friday evening. Our waiter Jacob was fantastic- he was efficient, kind, and engaging, a real people person. He wished me a happy birthday several times. I noticed that he connected well with all his tables, from a group of 20-somethings to an older group. We split a delicious wedge salad, had the best calamari we've ever had as an appetizer, and though it took a while for our entrees, we were happy to not have a rushed meal. The crab risotto special was excellent, as was the lobster ravioli. We were given dessert on the house, and the strawberry ricotta cake was a light, tasty seasonal option. We are never disappointed at Lucia's!

Fabulous all round experience! It felt like an upscale restaurant, and at the same time, felt like home. I took a friend from out of state. She has traveled the world, and has dined at the finest establishments throughout the US and abroad. She was very impressed- especially since Lucia's is in her hometown.

I loved the restaurant. Our waiter, (jared I believe his name was) was exceptional, the ambiance was great (amazing music) and the food was absolutely delicious. The only reason I gave the overall value 4 out of 5 stars is because 2 of my friends plates were dropped (an honest mistake) and since the kitchen was already closed the food could not have been remade. Instead of comping both meals only 15-20 dollars were taken off the bill when both plates were barely touched (we all had lots of appetizers and were so full by the time entrees came out). It was a bit disappointing to have to still pay for a meal that you couldnt take home or fully enjoy. However, I still would recommend this restaurant because apart from human error we thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you!

Two of my friends and I went out to Lucia’s to celebrate a birthday. Sadly it was so loud in the bar where we had reserved a table that I couldn’t carry on a conversation with my guests. So all we did was eat and promptly leave afterwards. Not much of a celebration.

We were greeted promptly and seated right away. Despite the close proximity to the bar, the noise level was not intrusive to conversation at our table. Our waitress was friendly, well informed about the menu, and attentive. The young man who brought the delicious bread kept the water glasses filled and cleared the dishes at appropriate intervals. My girlfriend was extremely pleased with her cheese type daily soup selection and the main course of shrimp and scallops linguini. I had the very tender braised short ribs and yukon gold potatoes with asparagus. We finished the meal by sharing a flavorful peanut butter pie. The only drawback was that we had made reservations to sit on the rooftop for the great view of the lake but the wind conditions closed that section. My girlfriend had the inside table seat to look out the window and still enjoy the view. Overall a wonderful dining experience and we would highly recommend to others.

Salads and main courses were wonderful as was the wine. Our server was fine. The noise level was awful; we had a table by the bar and people were way too loud. It was almost impossible to have a conversation. Next time I would request NOT to be seated in that room!

My wife and I were celebrating our 32nd Wedding Anniversary, and went there based on a friend’s suggestion. The service was exceptional. I am sorry that I cannot remember our servers name but she was extremely knowledgeable and explained the dishes in great detail. She was helpful in our decision making process as well, settling on the Tomahawk Ribeye to share. The shareable meatball was our appetizer and did not disappoint. We finished our meal with the Sea Salt Carmel pie, which was out of this world. Have already told 10 people about Lucia’s.

I brought several of my coworkers in for a celebratory dinner. We had to wait 10-15 minutes for our table that we had a reservation for and it was at 4:15 on a Wednesday. There was almost no one in the restaurant at the time. We were fine with waiting. The problem that I had was five to ten minutes after I paid the bill We were told that we had to get up and leave because there was another reservation for the table in 15 minutes. I would understand if we had been there for an excessive amount of time past paying the bill but we were not. I spoke to somebody at the restaurant as I was leaving and let them know of my concern. All they did was smile at me and say I’m sorry. That is very poor customer service and I am very disappointed.
