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.

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!

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.
