The food was good. The service was a bit slow but everyone was nice.
Chef Jose Hernández did it again!! The 6 course meal was awesome!! Very reasonable priced wines and incredible flavors throughout!!
The food is consistently good and the presentation is excellent. This is a new alternative business lunch spot for me with beautiful light so you don't feel cramped inside. Lovely.
I was in town for a one night stay at this amazing hotel. Decided to try the 6 course tasting menu. The food was spectacular. The staff were super courteous and beyond polite/accomadating. If I were to die and go to heaven and this was my last meal, my life would have been fulfilled. I recommend everyone try it if you like amazing food.
I loved how we were the only ones there. The wait staff was friendly and graciously gave us a delicious birthday dessert which was devoured in minutes. We will g back soon!
The space was quaint, quiet, and comfortable. I totally loved it!
Lovely classic French food and decor (with a modern twist)!
We went to celebrate my husbands birthday and it was empty on a Saturday night. Service great but food was ok- maybe a bit too adventurous for our taste. Tiny portions in tasting menu
Ended up making a reservation with Lucienne being we did the weekend dinner package with Hotel Alessandra for my wife’s birthday. The service was exceptional. Alavaro did a great job setting up the table for my wife’s birthday. And Domingo kept the bread coming which btw was delicious. Very fresh. We ended up doing the four course tasting menu. I wish we did the six course. We have to say that the food was very good, except the Beef Wellington was a little over cook but still good. The tuna martini was so so good and the lamb tartare was delicious. My wife had the rabbit which also was “muy rico”. The portions were just right. For dessert my wife had something that the chef made for her special occasion. I had the apple tart. 5 star. We also had breakfast there one morning which was just as good. We will be back again for the six course tasting menu next time we stay at the Alessandra
Thank you guys for making this the best birthday that my wife ever had. See you soon
Too bad the restaurant is not advertising/marketing enough. This is one of the best restaurants in Houston in terms of the quality of the food. While there at least three parties stopped by but there was no host to attend to them; thus they left. Lost business! I plan to eat more often for fear that it will close soon due to low volume of diners. Please, Lucienne owners, please, advertise and market more aggressively! Your chef’s talent and skills should not go to waste!!!
The food was great, but very slow service.
Wonderful service and even better food. Excellent experience.
Great food and fantastic service. I highly recommend Lucienne.
Went for brunch. Tuna tartare tasted fishy and past it’s prime (also grey in appearance). Lobster omelet was not very flavorful and the accompanying side was greasy. Overall, we were disappointed with the experience, as we like the bar and had reasonable expectations.
Everything was wonderful, food was amazing and staff was very helpful
I went for lunch again. This place is quickly becoming a favorite Downtown. I had the lobster bisque. Bread is amazing! I tried this time, though, to just have one. Service was quick; Kim is awesome. And they even let me ride in their Maserati back to work. (Not sure this is a normal perk but I'll take it.) Love this place!
I found the dining room an unusual combination of elegance ( pistachio green leather chairs and banquettes, lovely open space ) and early cafeteria ( utilitarian lighting and flooring, curtains that look like they were from TARGET.) Pity because the food was good.
Service was excellent. All the food was good with most items excellent.
Great value for a four or six course meal with several enticing options for each course. Also a very calming atmosphere with outstanding service. We will be back!
Good food, good service, good enviroment, quiet, comfortable. Very nice for business lunch meeting or date or enjoy with friends.
Outstanding food and service. A great evening.
Fabulously food, great house champagne!
This is one of the best gourmet meals in Houston. It is very reasonable for the quality, variety and presentation.
An undiscovered gem in the downtown area. We were celebrating an 80th birthday and with a reservation arrived at 7 p There were only 8 people there when we arrived...Service was prompt, menu was either tasting or a la carte, but the tasting menu was a bargain..had a wonderful evening with a great bottle of red wine, finishing with an unsolicited birthday cake for our honoree. Hope Houstonians catch on that this is fantastic food, in an unassuming new place.
Fantastic meal! This place is an unknown jem. We did the 6 course testing menu and the portions were a perfect size. One of the bedt French restaurants I've been to.
Why was this place not packed? Food and service were spectacular and price was a ridiculous bargain. One of my best Houston restaurant experiences in a long time. Kudos to Chef, kitchen and staff. I’ll be back soon.
Great place to enjoy a Sunday morning with family or friends. The food was absolutely scrumptious, and the service was wonderful. I definitely recommend!
Very quiet hidden gem. Excellent value tasting menu.
When Lucienne first opened it was quite interesting. No it offers food that I would expect at a Courtyard Marriott what happened and who decided to mess with the menu
This was the first time that we dinned here. The food, presentation, service and atmosphere were all excellent. We were going to stay at the hotel as well but gave up after seeing their web site (awful) It appears that there are some rooms that do not have batch tubs?! Never could figure out the pricing. Glad we went to the restaurant and will definitely go back.
Other: we valet parked and the restaurant stamped our ticket but it took almost 20 minutes to get our car.
This was my first time dining at Lucienne. It was a lovely experience all the way around. The dining room and light and modern. The noise level is low. The wait staff were attentive but not hovering. The food was delicious. I will be frequenting this spot for lunch and have already recommended it to others
We had a beautiful belated Mother's Day brunch. Very lovely fine dining experience -- but not stuffy or pretentious in any way. Loved the French atmosphere and menu.
Not at all special.
Great service and ambiance. Food was good.
We went with another couple and all of us did the tasting menu. We did the six course and they did the four course. The portion sizes were just right and every item was nicely presented and delicious. Service was excellent. Wine selection was good with reasonable prices. The chef took the time to chat with us. This restaurant is worth patronizing on a regular basis.
From stellar to the cellar.
From previous visits, couldn't wait to go back. Be careful what you wish for.
The menu has changed, eliminating my favorites that I go back for but hey......it's good to try new things and sometimes a push is needed. In this case, not so much. Or at all.
I'm not going to complain about them changing the menu and eliminating my personal favorites, restaurants are supposed to change. But.....maybe it was the day. Maybe it was all one-time fluke. I ordered the salad that as mozzarella, tomato and basil. The tomato was about half ripe, zero taste and hard to cut. Mozarella (technically buratta on the menu, but was sliced mozzarella like you get at HEB) and basil leaves. Nothing to dress, not even olive oil. ?
The crabcake on a puddle of something (it's the old menu on OpenTable so I can't see how it's described) was fine enough, but nothing Mrs. Paul's couldn't come up with. And oh....one might blot it at the end if it's fried short enough and at cool enough temperature to get...very...oil laden.
I know...painful. And it was so good!
The new Foie Gras burger is amazing! Very decadent.
Very fine meal - four of us enjoyed varied dishes from their 4 course pre fix menu - duck, scallops, lamb tartar and tenderloin all exceptional.
This is a good but not great place, the tasting menu is creative but too many dishes fell flat on flavor and intensity. Wines were quite good.
Not a “French “ bistro as described. Very disappointing in the food options. Paella was the new food option, which was disappointing! It’s a beautiful resturant. But lacking in the “French” quinine
