served with housemade marinara
Seemed like a nice place. Unfortunately we must of went on a bad day. Our Nachos had barely any chips or cheese and was covered in onion and sour cream. Was disappointing and gross! My date barely had any.
Took forever to get our first drinks. Seems like they are understaffed or have only ~1 bartender.
The tacos were just okay; Nothing special and for the price it's really bad. Very disappointing.
If I decide to come back I’ll just try the pizza....
Dined around a fire pot table outside. Rather cold evening but fire pot made it doable. Pizza was very good; Caesar salad was excellent. Service outstanding.
This is a great place for a chill, fun night! The late night menu was delicious, and the ambience and music put me and my friends in the best mood! The reservation process was smooth, and we felt very safe with all of their covid precautions. I'll definitely be back!
Delicious food and drinks. I am grateful that they allowed me to change my reservation from outside to inside to accommodate with the weather! I will for sure be coming back!
It’s a favorite. Casual, great pizza, fun atmosphere. Would highly recommend
Thank you so much for your review, Sadie! We're so excited to hear we're a favorite of yours! We hope to see you in again very soon! Thank you so much for your great recommendation!
The outdoor seating was so nice. I never felt like I was too close to the other tables. The staff were all very friendly, and the pizza and drinks were all amazing. Definitely recommend this for anyone looking for delicious pizza and good vibes.
Thanks so much for your review! We're so excited to hear you had such a great experience on our outdoor streatery and our staff took great care of you! We hope you visit us again soon, we're looking forward to it!
The food and cocktails were great! I highly recommend this place for a date night or a place to impress someone in Madison. The interior and ambience were very nice, too.
Thank you so much for your review, Madeline! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your food and cocktails when recently visiting us! We hope you'll join us again very soon, we very much appreciate the recommendation :) Cheers!
My husband and I went here for a date night. The outdoor dining, ambiance and service were outstanding. The food was flavorful, perfectly cooked, and delcious! I highly recommend Lucille's!
Service was very delayed throughout the evening. They're either short-staffed or the staff weren't efficient.
Thanks for your feedback! We're very sorry to hear your service was delayed. We're doing our very best to hire and train a strong team as quickly as possible as we transition out of winter and this pandemic. We hope you'll consider giving us another shot in the near future to see our improvements! Cheers!
Birthday dinner for boyfriend. Super fun and energetic place. Free bday dessert! ❤️
Lucille is great. Beautiful outdoor seating and excellent hygiene practices. Felt safe and staff was lovely. Perfect for a cool spring night.
Thank you so much for your review, Moira! We're so happy to hear our team took great care of you on our outdoor streatery and that you felt safe in our environment! We hope you'll join us again very soon, cheers!
We decided to make a reservation as the restaurant was portrayed to be a more “upscale” place. It was the total opposite. Building was in poor shape, it was dirty, and most everyone in the restaurant gave off that hipster vibe. Definitely an odd experience. The pizza we had was decent, though I don’t plan on going back.
They have shared bathrooms = dirty. No paper towels to open door upon retreat from bathroom. Wash your hands, blow dry them and then touch a questionably clean door handle to leave the bathroom. The servers can carry your pizzas to your table but they aren't allowed to put it in a to go box for you? Food was good, however wouldn't take clients there again. Definitely not the wine and dine experience to impress potential clients.
Very good food.
A little pricey...................
Thanks for your review, Mark! We hope to see you in again soon!
We reserved a table outdoors and were pleasantly surprised to have 2 patio heaters in close proximity. We were toasty warm even though it was mid March! Our server was attentive. The pizza was great, especially the Mediterranean. We were so happy to have this option during Covid, and we felt safe with the procedures in place. We will be back soon!!!!!
Thank you so much for your review! We're so happy to hear our team took great care of you in our outdoor seating area and that you loved your Mediterranean Pie! We hope you return soon :) Cheers!
Very cool vibe. Signature cocktails and excellent pizza.
This is my favorite restaurant and bar in Madison! Love the outdoor fire pits and how COVID safe they are - definitely make a reservation!
Thank you so much for your review, Erica! We're absolutely thrilled to hear we're your favorite restaurant in Madison! Such an honor :) We hope you'll join us again very soon, we're certainly looking forward to it! Cheers!
Loved the vibe of the place along with the fact that you can choose to eat in their beautiful inside area or dine outdoors - they have heaters and fire pits!
Enjoyed the cocktails - the pink chimney is on my all time favorite list.
Two different kinds of pizzas - had to try the Detroit pizza since I had never had that before and it didn't disappoint. Many very interesting toppings to choose from or build your own.
Definitely will come back.
Thank you so much for your review, Terri! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your Pink Chimneys, Steel Pan pizza, and our environment on your recent visit! We're very much looking forward to your return and we hope it's very soon! :) Cheers!
So lovely! The food and drinks were amazing! Very clean and well spaced. Definitely would go back :)
Thank you so much for your review! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us and that you felt safe in our environment :) We hope you'll visit us again soon! Cheers!
AWESOME! Service was great! They made a very slight mistake on our pizza so they made us a new one, without even asking, and gave us the oops one as well. Woohoo free pizza! Clean, well spaced, fantastic pizza. Seriously, what else could we ask for? -Happy Customer :-)
Thank you so much for your review! We're so happy to hear you had an enjoyable experience with us and that we were able to make up for our mistake on your order. We hope you enjoyed the extra pizza and we hope you'll join us again soon! We're looking forward to it :) cheers!
Everything was just perfect ! Great pizza ! Great service ~ Esther was a pleasure! Great vibe! We sat inside on the top floor and it was not too loud at all!
Thank you so much for your review! We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed experience with us and loved your food, service, and our atmosphere! We hope you'll join us again very soon, we're looking forward to it! :)
Love the pizza. Delicious Detroit style Za!
Thank you so much for your review, John! We hope you join us again soon for some more pizza!
We went to Lucille the day they reopened after a COVID-19 closure, and we ate outside. Unfortunately they were out of three items I tried to order (gluten-free pizza, chicken tacos, and mulled wine), but I'm hoping this was due to the closure and a one-time event. It wasn't a big deal, other than the gluten-free pizza. I can't eat gluten for medical reasons, so there weren't a lot of other options for me. I did try the empanadas, and they were really good! For the future, if out of gluten-free crust, I recommend sharing that on social media so that people who have to eat gluten-free know.
Unfortunately food was not very good. Everything else, amazing!
Everything was great, except we waited 5 minutes for a host to acknowledge us after arriving on time for our reservation. Before being seated the host said, “Just so you are aware, there is a reservation at your table directly after yours at 5:45.” I understand that restaurants are busy and have limited seating due to COVID. However, that was not the way we wanted to start our first visit to a restaurant since October.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We will certainly work on improving the speed of our hosts in getting back to our host stand as quickly as possible after seating our guests. We do try to be as transparent with our guests about seating arrangements to successfully set up the expectation of our guests' visits. We truly apologize if this started your visit on the wrong note and we will undergo additional training to best communicate this moving forward. We hope you'll join us again soon!
The outdoor patio with the firepits and heaters was a lot of fun.
Thank you so much for your review! We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your time by a firepit on our outdoor streatery this past weekend! We hope you'll join us again very soon :) Cheers!
So nice to eat fantastic pizza outside over a fire in view of the Capitol.
Thank you so much for your review! We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your pizza on our outdoor streatery at one of our firepits! We hope you'll join us again very soon :) Cheers!
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!
Was an excellent experience at Lucille. We enjoyed their Valentine’s day special. Staff were great, felt very safe and spread out.
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!
