The food was outstanding. Smaller portions but delicious flavors and the menu is truly for everyone taste. Being able to BYOB allowed us to enjoy multiple bottles of wine with different parts of our meal. The staff knows the menu well and the place is cozy. Sit on the patio if the weather is nice - it’s beautiful, especially at night, for a romantic date night out.

We love Lucio's so much. It is our go-to special occasion place. Excellent food and I love that it is BYOB. We sat on the patio for the first time and it was lovely.

Was very happy to dine at Lucio's on the first day they re-opened! We sat on the outdoor patio and felt very comfortable. Our waitress was perfect! Friendly and informative, and very welcoming. We shared the calamari and the apple goat cheese salad to start, and the scallops and short ribs entrees. All really delicious. And creme brûlée for dessert. It was also excellent.

If you haven't been you need to go! Small menu well executed and great service. Food is fresh and beautifully presented with thoughtful combinations of sides and mains. Bring your own wine is a bonus. Wonderful ambience,
Not too loud. Outdoor patio. What more do you want? The duck and hangar steak are amazing--

We had dined there a few years ago and could not remember the name. Reading an article about BYOB restaurants in Houston recently, I found it again. My wife and I brought a very nice bottle of wine for our dinner and the corkage fee of only $8 was great. We enjoyed our appetizers, the main courses were to die for and dessert was outstanding. Adding top notch service was icing on the cake. We will not forget the name in the future and will definitely be back.

Irena is a freshness needed in the dining room. She is very well versed in culinary arts and presents the menu options in delectable detail that is accurate to the cooking methods of the menu choices. Irena is a professional that compliments the food quality, choices and ambience of Lucio’s!

I really like this small restaurant off the beaten track in Houston. The atmosphere is a little dark but
tolerable. The food is solid. The chef does not try to get too cute with his preparations and the food is presented in a sensible manner. I thoroughly enjoyed my rack of lamb which was ample and cooked to my request. My wife enjoyed her duck breast which in her experience is always a hit or miss proposition with a lot of restaurants. No problems here.
Of course, the big draw is the BYOB option. the staff is excellent at setting you up with glasses and coolers for your wine. Furthermore, they are willing to let you take your time before ordering to enjoy your wine.
There are better restaurants for food in Houston but the overall experience at Lucio's is a cut above most of the others. I highly recommend Lucio's.

Loved this restaurant and the service we received from George. The food was excellent and all the recommendations George made for dishes were exceptional. We enjoyed every dish we had!

We will definitely return and bring friends along. This restaurant is a hidden gem in Montrose.

Exquisite smoked salmon and the risotto with scallops are worth a visit. Food is paired with excellent service. This is a long standing establishment where there is a continued search for new dishes with interesting flavors.

This is a lovely place, with a romantic atmosphere. Our meal was good, and our waiter, Steve, was excellent. I love the fact that I can take my own wine. Lucio's is good for date night or dinner with friends.

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!
