served with housemade marinara
My friend and I are weekly visitors to Lucille and this evening was sub-standard. When we first arrived, it was not busy but it took over 15 minutes to get our drink order. The server we had was "okay," in that she did not compare to our other experiences with some of the most friendly servers on so many levels. Ultimately, in the end, we never got to order another drink because the server never returned, and when she did, she did not ask us if we were done, and instead, gave us our bill.
Food was great! The service was not so great. The waitress came by maybe twice and we were there almost two hours.. wasn’t impressed.
Love Lucille! My friend and I shared a firepit table outside and were so happy to have an outdoor option to keep us safe and warm. Cocktails were delicious! Can't wait to go back!
Delicious pizza. Great service. It was a little chilly eating outside even with the gas fire pit.
Thank you so much for your review, Kim! We're happy to hear you enjoyed your food and service when recently dining with us! We hope you'll join us again very soon :) Cheers!
Had lunch outside around the outdoor fire pits and we were the only ones out there. Felt very safe and the food was delicious as always
Thank you so much for your review, Liz! We're so happy to hear you felt comfortable dining with us and you enjoyed your food! We hope you'll join us again very soon :) Cheers!
The first 2 gas fire pit tables didn’t work, but 3 did. Fortunately, it wasn’t too crowded & additional tables were open.
Thanks for your review, Doug! We're happy to hear we were able to seat you at working firepit! We've been going through propane tanks very quickly on these most recent nicer days and we most likely just needed a switchover. We hope you'll join us again soon, cheers!
Amazing food, service was spectacular, Lucille truly lives up to the expectations.
Thank you so much for your review! We're so happy to hear you had such a great experience when recently dining with us :) We're looking forward to your next visit! Cheers!
OUTDOOR firepit dining. Very nice (second) visit to Lucille this COVID winter for a table for two out front. The reservation process is easy (and free, unlike some Madison restaurants that charge for a firepit). The service was FANTASTIC, Tara did an excellent job keeping hot drinks and good food in front of us. It was 20 degrees, and we had snowpants and parkas on, but the firepit and overhead tower heater kept us comfortable for 2 hours. Nice experience...glad outdoor dining is still an option!
Thank you so much for your review, Andy! We're thrilled to hear you had such a great experience dining with us at our firepits and that you were so well taken care of by Tara! She's a great addition to our Team and we're very lucky to have her. We'll continue to have our outdoor streatery open until April of 2022 per City of Madison guidelines. We hope you'll join us again soon! :)
I swear to god this is one of the best restaurants in Madison. Amazing food, service, and the place is so cute.
Dear Emma, thank you so much for your review! We are thrilled to hear we're one of your favorite spots in Madison! We're honored! We hope you'll join us again very soon! P.S. We love you too! :)
Fantastic! Didn’t feel rushed. The place looked amazing. Great Valentine’s Day date spot.
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your time celebrating Valentine's Day with us :) We very much hope you'll join us again soon!
The atmosphere was perfect and the food was delicious.
Thank you so much for your review, Abby! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your food and our atmosphere on your recent visit! We hope you'll return soon!
Nachos & pizza are excellent. They were out of several beers we were interested in. Service was somewhat slow & we often had to flag down wait staff to ask for water/drinks, etc.
Thanks for your review, Khaleesi! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your pizza and nachos when recently visiting! However, we're so sorry to hear we were out of the beers you were hoping to order and our service wasn't prompt. We appreciate this feedback so that we know exactly what we need to improve on to best please our guests :) We hope you'll join us again soon!
Very pleasant wait staff, good food, and good COVID precautions. Would definitely go again! It is a bit pricy, but you get what you pay for.
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your food and service while feeling safe in our environment! We very much are looking forward to your return and hope it's soon! Cheers!
Good spacing out for Covid regulations. Fast service and good tunes and drinks
Thank you so much for your review, Arianna! We are so happy to hear you were well taken care of while enjoying your drinks and our tunes last time you were in! We hope you'll join us again very soon, we're looking forward to it!
Amazing server. Thanks for a great outdoor dining experience!
Thank you so much for your review! We're happy to hear our staff took great care of you when dining with us on our new outdoor streatery! We hope you'll join us again in the near future, cheers!
Table outside on a very cold night but the staff helpful in putting heaters close by and were very friendly in doing so. The Pizzas were delicious. A great place to be able to get-together in spite of Covid.
Thank you so much for your review, Amy! We're so excited you got the opportunity to experience our new outdoor streatery and that our service team took great care of you! Thanks for joining us and we hope you return soon!
Enjoyed sitting by the firepit on a snowy night. We had excellent service and enjoyed hot toddy and cold beer.
Thank you so much for your review, JJMadison! We are so excited to hear you got the opportunity to experience our new outdoor winter streatery with some delicious drinks! We hope you'll join us again soon!
Great atmosphere (outside seating with fire pits and pretty lights), great server (thanks Emerson), and great food (the pizza and ranch, omg delicious).
Thank you so much for your review, Jaidelynn! We are so excited to hear you visited us from Illinois and that Emerson took great care of you! Emerson is fantastic and we're really fortunate to have them on our team at Lucille :) We're also happy to hear you enjoyed your pizza and our outdoor firepit streatery! We hope you'll join us when visiting Madison again! Cheers!
The service was excellent (friendly and thorough), food was great, cocktails were poppin', and despite the cold, sitting around the firebowl was comfortable and quiet. Thank you, Joel, Brian, and the rest of the team who assisted us for making my sister's birthday dinner a special occasion (even during a pandemic!).
Thank you so much for your review, Molly! We are absolutely thrilled you chose to join us for your sister's birthday dinner and enjoyed your time on our new winter streatery! And we're proud to hear everyone on our team took great care of you and that you enjoyed all your food & cocktails :) We hope you, your sister, and friends will join us again very soon!
My friend and I enjoyed a yummy pizza at the outside tables with firepits. I very much appreciate the ambience and opportunity to get out while staying safe!
Thank you so much for your review, Lee! We are so happy to hear you felt safe and enjoyed your experience on our new winter streatery! We hope you and your friend will join us again soon, we're looking forward to it!
You must get the Woodfire AND the pan. They were both amazing!
Thank you so much for your review! We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed both styles of our pizza! We hope you'll stop by again soon, cheers!
In these Covid times, I highly recommend reserving a fire pit table! They have the portable stand up heaters as well and it kept us warm in below 30 degree weather.
I highly recommend the Detroit style pizzas and cheese curds. Service was excellent and they offer contactless payment through the Toast app.
Thank you so much for your review, Amy! We are so excited you got a chance to warm up by the fire on our new winter streatery and enjoyed your food & service! We're honored by your recommendation and hope you join us again very soon! Cheers!
Love the steel pan pizza! Really appreciate all the covid precautions and cleaning procedures.
Thank you so much for your review! We're so happy to hear you're a fan of our steel pan pizza and you feel safe & comfortable in our environment! We hope you'll join us again soon, cheers!
Fun outdoor dining experience in January during CoVid!!
Thank you so much for your review, Kam! We're so excited to hear you got a chance to enjoy our new outdoor winter streatery! We hope you'll join us again soon :) Cheers!
I understand it was NYE, but every other night the kitchen is open until close for a free slice of pizza with a purchase of a classic cocktail. You would think that the kitchen would definitely be open on NYE - it was such a big disappointment. Our reservation was at 9:30pm and our waitress also never mentioned that the kitchen was closing soon so we had planned on ordering food, but she never mentioned it closing. Really disappointing.
They were out of the holiday drink we went for. We were seated next to the windows and it was extremely drafty and cold. Also poor way of handling takeout/to-go orders as the people waiting for their orders were congregated around our table while we were trying to eat and drink. Wish they would have a better system for handling takeout so people dining in didn’t have to be crowded or uncomfortable while eating.
We spent NYE at Lucille and it was amazing! They took our temps on the way in and there was never a moment where we felt too close to another party. Our waitress was so sweet and prompt, and our pizzas were delicious! The margaritas were tasty too :)
Thank you so much for your review, Samantha! We are so excited to hear you had a great time ringing in the New Year with us and that you felt comfortable in our environment :) It's extremely important to us and we're so happy that you enjoyed your pizzas and service as well. We're very much looking forward to your next visit and hope it's soon! Cheers!
Sat outside with firepit was wonderful. Our waiter Bailey was fantastic. Very kind and helpful absolutely the best. Perfect way to spend new years eve day lunch.
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy to hear you got the opportunity to enjoy our outdoor streatery seating and that Bailey took great care of you! We've passed along your comments to him and we're looking forward to your next visit, we hope it's soon!
our server was so good! i don't remember her name but she had short hair and cool earrings shaped like a face. i had a few allergies so i made my own pizza and she suggested the vegan mozz because i said i had a dairy allergy. she suggested good cocktails for my friend as well and took pictures for us. my friend is moving to new york this week and she made our last dinner with her great!
Thank you so much for your review! We are so excited to hear your server took great care of you when you and your friend from out of town were visiting! Your server's name is Emerson, and we're so lucky to have her on our team. We've passed along your comments to her and we're very much hoping you'll join us again soon! Cheers!
Funny how the wait staff are propane tank experts now. Like they didn’t have enough to be concerned with. I love that Lucille is giving us the opportunity to some safely outside and the staff gets credit for obliging. There’s tons of heaters, beautiful scenery (oh to be able to enjoy the lovely decorations inside!), yummy food and a staff aiming to please.
Thank you so much for your review! It means more to us than you could ever know for our guests to recognize our efforts navigating this crazy time. We're so happy to hear you got the opportunity to enjoy our outdoor streatery as well as our fun holiday decorations inside! We hope you'll join us again soon, we're very much looking forward to it :) Cheers!
Our server, Jonny, was amazing! We had a fantastic time enjoying the outdoor seating. Drinks and food both came out quickly and tasted great. I was very impressed with the distance between tables and Lucille's guidelines for masks (both employees and patrons). We will be back!
Thank you so much for your review, Elizabeth! We are so happy to hear you loved your food & drinks while receiving great service from Johny! We're very lucky to have him on our team :) We're very much looking forward to your return, cheers!
Talk about amazing! Great decorations for the holidays!! Mad me forget about COVID....great service, great cocktails and as always amazing food!!
Thank you so much for your review, Paul! We are so excited to hear you enjoyed your cocktails, food, and service in our holiday atmosphere! We hope you felt comfortable & safe in our space and we're looking forward to your next visit! Cheers!
I understand it tough finding a waitstaff these days. Our service was very poor due to lack of help. Food and drinks were good though. Loved the outdoor fire and heaters!
We had a lot of fun sitting outside by the fire. Great food and drinks
Thank you so much for your review! We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your food & drinks while hanging out by our new outdoor firepits :) We hope you'll visit us again soon!
I have visited Lucille many times before and absolutely love the atmosphere, drinks and food. On this date, we had really bad food. The pizza was burnt and service was not great. Overall disappointed in the visit.
Great experience. The restaurant was decorated in such a fun way for Christmas. Great food and service, would come back!
Thank you so much for your review! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your food, service, and our holiday atmosphere during your recent visit! We hope you'll visit us again soon, we're looking forward to it!
We sat outside with the heaters and fire pit and it was actually lovely! Our fire pit went out and our server Emerson was so helpful! She was so kind, attentive and we had a very pleasant experience. Thanks for making a dinner outside in the middle of Wisconsin very enjoyable!
Thank you so much for your review, Deanna! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed our new outdoor firepits while receiving great service from Emerson :) She's fairly new to our team and we're so lucky to have her working with us! We hope you'll visit us again soon, cheers!
The 🔥 pits really contributed to a cool atmosphere and allowed for a great date with a beautiful woman. Thanks Lucille!
Thank you so much for your review! We're so happy to hear you got a chance to enjoy our new outdoor firepits! We hope you'll join us again soon :) Cheers!
Took my boyfriend here for dinner here for his first time and he’s still raving about it today. Food was amazing as always and we had a great waitress with a wonderful personality and attentive!
Thank you so much for your review! We're thrilled you brought your boyfriend to visit us and he loved it! And we're happy to hear you received great service and you enjoyed your food :) We hope to see you both in again soon!
Temp taken at check in, nice
Host/Hostess. Seated upstairs,festive lights,delish Mediterranean pizza, very nice attentive waiter
My only beef? Dont like spending $12 for (Christmas Cosmo) a cocktail served in a tiny glass. Not a cosmo glass but a old style small wide champagne glass.Felt it was a rip off.
