Love this restaurant, but alas, it has now closed so this review is moot. We are sad they are closed, since we went every Sunday for brunch and it was amazing always. We will miss our brunch spot and our favorite server, Anne.

Fantastic meal on Lucia's final weekend before closing. Lots of memories....Despite the recent changes there, I'll miss that place.

Two friends who have dined together at Lucia's went for a last lunch the day before the restaurant closed permanently. As always, the food - beef short rib chili and mushroom stroganoff this time - were scrumptious, perfectly done, in our opinions. It is a Twin Cities tragedy that the restaurant has closed after 30 years of fine dining and memories.

We are losing lucia's because the arrogant office holders at City hall have decided that restaurant parking lots, apartment parking requirements and driving in general are not in the best interest of the City. Cristo's lost their parking lot for the same reason. How many others have been lost in the City's war against cars?

We wanted to go to Lucia's before it closed, so managed to get a table for early on a Thursday evening. Still not sure what happened, but after promptly getting a couple of glasses of wine, the service went to hell. There was a 15-20 minute wait for our share plate, then a 25-30 minute gap before a server brought our entrees - except we'd also ordered starters, but had never received them. When this was pointed out, the server asked if we still wanted the starters. We said yes. Our original waiter came to the table and apologized for the mix-up; then he went to the table behind us and apologized to those diners because they hadn't yet received part of their order. Thinking our starters would arrive in a few minutes, we were surprised to have another 15-20 minute wait (after having finished our entrees). We were disappointed that our waiter did not offer to compensate us for the confusion and/or long wait times. The food was OK but nothing I was excited about, so between that and the terrible service, I would not recommend Lucia's. Of course, it's now closed, so this is a moot point.

I've eaten at Lucia's for many years and have alway raved how fabulous the food was here, but this visit I was rather disappointed, I felt like they didn't really care anymore now that they are days away from closing. Three of us ordered the turkey sandwich, which did have a lot of turkey in the sandwich, but the condiments were sparse and it seemed lacking and the baguette style bread was so thick it was impossible to get a bite of the sandwich together. The only thing it came with was four small pieces of lettuce which was suppose to serve as a side salad I guess, but I've seen larger children's portions. While the wait person was alright, he seemed uninterested and never checked with to see if there was anything else we wanted etc. All in all pretty disappointed in my last visit to Lucia's. I will remember the old Lucia's when the restaurant was owned by her, then it was top notch and I always recommended it.

So sad to see that Lucia's is closing. We decided to come one last time before it closes for good. Food and experience was excellent as always.

This was a farewell meal to an "old friend " cafe closing this month. Still lovely, though sadly suffered a bit from short timer syndrome. And the loss of its bakery.

Last visit was a disappointment. In the last couple of years since it was bought by Stellas, the quality and consistency has slipped considerably. When Lucias first opened and for many years after, it was one of our favorite restaurants. It had creative cuisine, fresh ingredients and delightful meals.

I am going to miss Lucia’s. The location, the warmth of the room, and the quality of the food. An institution that is no longer valued as demographics and food scene changes.

Had heard so many good things but had never been. Learned if it's closing and rushed to experience it, and it did not disappoint. Sad to lose this restaurant so soon after finding it!

Food was delicious. Had the short ribs and they were so tender and just coming apart. The mashed potatoes and kale were a great compliment to the ribs. Excellent meal, sorry to find out that they will be closing in 11 days.
