Our favorite local restaurant and were Lucio's not so close we'd definitely make the effort to dine there. The food is of high quality and clean, the service and presentation impeccable, BYOB for me is a major plus too. The only suggestion I have to make is in regard to the decor. The interior could use a little attention, it's a little dated, minor quibble.

The food is great and health conscious. The service is incredible because there is only one Server but she is organized and efficient and nice. The Steak is awesome and I loved the mushroom soup. Can’t wait to go again!

Lucio’s always delivers a high level experience. The BYOB opportunity brings us in but the high quality dishes bring us back. We bring along favorite wines that beg for special food that both end up better in combination. Every dish seems to have a unique twist making for a special encounter. Delightful and professional staff make this a place we must visit often.

Went with two other couples to celebrate my wife’s birthday - small place, maybe 10 tables, wry sparse decorations but the overall ambiance was nice. The waitress was alone serving all those tables and she was overwhelmed, but did her best. Food was great, (we had rib eye steak)- juicy and very flavorful. Wine list had a nice selection, even though lots of other people brought their own. Desert brownie was delicious, and after-dinner coffee was pressed at the table (small individual pot with about 2 cups per person. Overall, wonderful ambiance, food, wine dessert and coffee - staff was great and friendly, waitress needs some help.

We come here at least twice a month for the amazing food . The service is excellent and you can bring your own wine or order from their short wine list . The chef is always adding seasonal additions to the menu to keep things fresh. A great value.

Lucio's is by far the best BYOB in Houston. The food is amazing and the prices are very reasonable. As soon as we got the email they were back open from closing temporatily because of Covid, we immediately made a reservation. The food is consistently fantastic, including the daily specials. The staff is very friendly and professional, even when they are super busy. There is something on the menu of everyone. We love the patio when it is not too hot or cold outside. I can't say enough about how wonderful this restaurant is!

We had our NYE dinner here and service was amazing, cozy atmosphere and food was delicious like always. I just hope they never grow into a huge restaurant or service and food quality can go down as I have experience with other places. Definitely coming back! Highly recommend.

Perfect. We were able to bring our own bottles of wine and since it was Wednesday there was no corking fee (I think it’s normally only $8). We had the duck breast and ribeye. So so good! And our waitress was from France and she was outstanding. Will be back many many times!

First time at Lucio's and let me say...WOW!!!! I was looking for a BYOB spot that had a nice atmosphere for dinner and a memorable meal....and by far, this was the place. Love the small, intimate feel I experienced as soon as I walked in the door. With the open kitchen, amazing aromas in the air, tasteful decor and evening mood lighting....what a perfect first impression. Service and hospitality are on point....and the food....AMAZING. Attention to detail on plating, we eat with our eyes :), portion size, and flavors....every bite was memorable.

If your a foodie, and love a great atmosphere and the ability to bring one or two of your favorite wines and not have to be screwed with the normal 2.5 - 3 x markup restaurants normally put on wine....then THIS IS YOUR SPOT! Just please, save me a table :)

A truly special date-night dining experience. Each course of our meal was a revelation, from starters to dessert. Excellent, attentive service, but never hovering. We had the Pork Duo and Smoked Duck Breast entrees (outstanding), but frankly we can't wait to try everything on their thoughtful, imaginative, and expertly prepared menu. Being able to enjoy our favorite bottle of wine for a very small corkage fee was an added bonus. "Refined and relaxed" is the perfect way to describe the experience.

I introduced my daughter and her husband to Lucio's and they loved it. During dinner they were discussing the friends they wanted to invite to dinner the next time they traveled into town from Cypress. The cheese plate and crab cake were very good. I love the heirloom tomato salad and the salmon is my favorite dish. They enjoyed the filet mignon and the bread pudding for dessert. Very enjoyable evening and the service is outstanding!!

One of my favorite restaurants in Houston. You can byob, but they do have wine. Their French cut lamb chops are fantastic. The duck breast is one of their best main dishes. Service is always good.

Irina is a wonderful server, and we've enjoyed sitting in her area before. That night, she was assigned ALL the tables outside after a fellow server didn't show. My husband likes a detailed description of menu items (not all of them but two or three from the menu), and it felt a bit rushed. We will definitely return but probably after the pandemic when things are a bit more normal.

We have been eating for several years but the food quality and service are at an all time high. Food is just amazing and the best ribeye we have had in Houston. I have always appreciated being able to bring my own wine and now the experience is even better. I recommend this restaurant to all my family and friends. I look forward to going back again.
