The restaurant upstairs was extremely hot and stuffy, my whole party was sweating our whole reservation. Waitress wasn’t attentive or punctual with our group at all, ordered a round of drinks and 15 mins later she walked by and asked if we were ready for the check or wanted another round and was then reminded that we already had ordered another round with her, she brought the check and the second round of drinks at the same time about another 15 mins later. Very disappointed, especially with it being just a Thursday night.

Honestly, not great. They are always out of food, wine, etc. Their steel pan pizza is just not quality. And they gave us a salad without anything on it. Out of spring green mix? Out of house rose? Go run to the grocery store and get some! Ridiculous.

We had reservations at 5 for 2 of us. We were sat immediately outside. At 5:25 no one had been to our table. No acknowledgment. No water. I flagged down another waitress who kindly took our order and was fantastic. It appears our server did not show up for work. Host must not have known. Businesses are struggling right now. Love Lucille. We will be back.

Our server Claire was an absolute gem! Attentive to our needs while being respectful of our desire to visit and enjoy our visit. Food and drink recommendations Claire provided were spot on - Nachos, guac and a wood fired pizza were wonderful nibbles to share with friends while enjoying some refreshing cocktails out on the streetery.

Short staffed on the weekend so mostly only pizza available, no tacos that we’d been planning on ordering. Musicians were smoking and odor was unpleasant during our meal. Aperol spritz mostly tasted like orange soda, not like a real Aperol
spritz. Hopefully just an off night as we’ve had good experiences at Lucille earlier this year.

We sat outside, it was fairly noisy right next to the street. Our table also was sunny and I was blinded by the glare on the building. Not sure why there were umbrellas, because none were in use. The date night special was good. The dessert was huge. The waiter who was a trainee but was doing a decent job. We enjoyed our meal.

What a wonderful evening in Madison! Lucille is one of my favorite places to dine downtown. This was the first time I have been back since the pandemic began. The staff was exceptional and the food was better than I remembered! The expanded patio was fabulous and I’ve always loved the floor to ceiling windows that are opened up around the restaurant. Griffin was an incredible and genuine server—patient with the three of us gals who can get carried away with conversation and need a few extra minutes to order. Can’t wait to go back!

Came to reservation early about 15mins got seated right away. Person who seated us poured some water but took the bottle with her. Then sat there for about 45mins watching the waiter go to all the other table until finally I stopped him to place an order and get some water waited another 20 mins for the drinks we ordered. Then finally got the food way late. The food was amazing. The service was just terrible and the wait on the food. We literally saw people get seated and 20mins later got there food but we sat for more than an hour to get our food.

The food and drinks were great, they seemed under staffed so the service was pretty slow but very nice. We reserved an outdoor table and were seated at a very very low and very small table that felt like we were squeezed in - our pizza didn’t fit on it, we had to move the water off..it was way too small. We asked to move to a larger more standard table (there were two open) and we were told they were reserved - but was really frustrating when a party of 2 was sat there 20 mins later and we were a party of 3 - but I’d still return the food is delicious.

We only had the pizza on our first visit to Lucille and it was pretty delicious! Of the wood fired pizza, the Almyra was bursting with flavor (my favorite over the Nistisimo wood fire pizza that we also had). But if you like a deeper dish pizza, the steel pan pizza is pure comfort food! The crispy edged thick crust melts in your mouth! The outdoor seating is good if you don’t get the fire pit converted to a table. We asked to be moved because it is too small and low for four people and the door for the propane tank kept opening and hitting me in the knee. The indoor ambiance looked modern and fun with good music that couldn’t really be heard outdoors. I’d go indoors next time with COVID restrictions being lifted.
