Friendly and attentive staff. Great food! Wine friendly. We’re from another state, visited twice this trip and enjoyed everything we had. Carpaccio, butternut squash soup, butternut squash risotto, bread, skirt steak, ahi, walnut/goat cheese salad and house salad...all great!

Terrific experience. Food was perfect. The ability to take an expensive bottle of wine to a lovely restaurant and not have to pay a 3x markup is fantastic. Thank you Lucio’s!

Great smaller neighborhood gem with great service (Steve) and fantastic food! The presentation was also great and we all enjoyed the smaller venue as it was great for conversation. If you want to have a great dinner in an unpretentious setting, this is a great find!

Very nice menu selections. It is diverse enough that anyone can find something they will like. The food comes out quickly. It is quiet enough to carry on conversations without having to shout. Overall a very good restaurant.

As a frequent diner at this wonderful restaurant, it is always a treat when I can introduce friends to it for the first time. The only problem is when they cross-examine me as to why I haven't told them sooner! I can live with that! I know they will be back .... over and over ... like I am!

Very good on all points. Hangar steak was perfectly cooked and was very tender. Carpaccio was well presented and seasoned. The duck breast was large and served with wilted spinach cooked to medium rare. Dessert was the brownie which we topped with extra vanilla. A nice end to the meal. And the best part is you get to bring your own wine. We will be returning.

First off, we dined here on a Monday night. We had made reservations for 8 but it was not really necessary, the restaurant was not even half full, so not quite the ambiance we had hoped for. The service and the food was excellent. The BYOB was confusing to my son who brought a rolling cooler with ice and beer (lol!). The rest of us brought wine bottles that were charged an 8 USD corkage fee. Although the food was excellent, we had tuna, scallops, file mignon, chicken, and duck, we were misled by the $$ price rating on OpenTable. All the entrees were $30-40 each, there were hardly any entrees under $30. Having said this, we did spend more than we wanted to and the servings were small. Even though we shared some appetizers (carpaccio and calamari) we were all hungry when we got back home. :( The restaurant did have complementary valet, which is nice. However, I did not see the patio.

We went on a Monday evening for our Anniversary so the restaurant was very quiet. Food and service was excellent. We will go back again and try on a busier evening to really get the full ambiance.

Lucio’s has become my favorite place to take friends out in Houston. The fact that I can bring the kind of wine I like that is not necessarily available is the primary issue. The other is the amazing food that is based exclusively on using the best ingredients, prepared with care and integrity. No gimmicks in this menu, fenomenal food, good price and service that rivals any 5 star restaurant around the world. One of the most unique things that happens to me often while I dine, is to have people from other tables comment on the wine we drink, starting conversation and sharing their own wine. This is a place where people can connect... never have I ever seen anybody on a cell phone or device in isolation. This is a rare thing to experience... for all these reason I will keep on coming back to this wonderful place

Excellent food and choices. We were seated in the front section which was a little noisy especially as we had a ten-top birthday next to us. Prefer the back section. The A/C really could have been turned up about 5 degrees. 93 degrees outside and I was cold with a jacket on!

House smoked salmon fabulous, tomatoes with burrata outstanding, and the special-of-the-night steak with its black pepper au jus was cooked perfectly. The chocolate brownie with raspberry sorbet was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. It was a perfect dinner.

We always enjoy the food, excellent service and atmosphere! You can sit inside or on the patio. We usually go with a group of friends with a wide variety of dietary needs. Appetizers through deserts, we have been consistently happy.

Steve our waiter was the best! It was very quiet on a Tuesday night at 7, which we appreciated. We were only ones there until another couple came in. Limited selection for me (vegetarian), but what they prepared (veggie risotto) was delicious. I forgot that it was a BYOB place, so we ordered off their wine list. All in all, a pleasurable dining experience.

Lucio's BYOB & Grill always delivers the best food. This is my favorite place when I want to show out of town guest excellent service and amazing food. The fact that one can bring its own wine is a favorable factor. One can bring that special bottle of wine without having to settle for what is available. I strongly recommend this restaurant.
