The staff at lucio's is top notch.... one step ahead of you the whole time. We had smoked salmon appetizer and then sesame crusted tuna and the filet. All three were delicious as always. If you haven't been, you should definitely add to your list.

We truly enjoyed our first visit to Lucio’s! We had the scallops & ahi tuna which were cooked to perfection. Our waiter, Esteban, was attentive & helpful. Will definitely return!

It was great! The food and service were amazing. I could actually hear the people I was eating with. They brought me bread pudding with a candle for my birthday. Great experience! Def going back for date night. Only $8 corking fee! Other BYOBs are $20.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at Lucio's. The food was fantastic, however the service was mediocre. It's a real shame because I have dined there several times before and the service was exceptional.

Consistently great food and good service but the dining room leaves a lot to be desired - lacks any warmth and the art is rudimentary. Outdoor dining, when available, is preferred.

Sadly our $55 Rib eye was as tough as shoe leather. The flavor was good but the quality was not. We LOVE Lucio’s but were very disappointed this time. The salmon appetizer and the squash soup were wonderful, but I will not be ordering a rib eye steak here again.

Great food, great service, and a great value when you BYOB! We had a party of 10 and it was great to be somewhere that you could still hear conversation from one end of the table to the other. I am definitely planning on going back.

Great service. As soon as we walked in they said our last name (without us telling them) sifted us and had water poured. The waiter was very helpful with suggestions and considered the wine we brought with his suggestions. Food was excellent especially the scallops.

Normally have such a great meal at Lucio’s, but it was off this time. Three of the four of us experienced our food as being over cooked. I even returned my steak, as it was certainly not medium rare, and even the second attempt was not better. Hopefully it was just an off night.

Excellent as always! Lamb Chops are superbly cooked to temperature. The AHI Tuna is top quality as is the crabcake, calamari and all of the desserts. Exceptional chef and kitchen staff with their unique additions to the main course. Wait staff are a team and help each other to ensure customers are well satisfied. Always a favorite of ours and you can bring your own wine or they have choices as well.

Continues to be one of our FAVORITES! Whether it is just the 2 of us or a group, we know it's going to be a wonderful meal. From the moment we are warmly welcomed by the great staff to the great meal we enjoy, it's just a special place. We highly recommend the Hagner Hanger Steak and Potato Stack. Tender, flavorful ... delicious! And the soups and salads! Even the "creamy" soups are more broth based so they are not too heavy. But start with the freshest, cleanest, best calamari ever! Enjoy!

Melvin started the night off for us by saving our 33 yr old wine by getting the cork out after I broke it off. Food was fantastic including dessert. Entrees were Aus rack of lamb and the filet. Love this BYOB restaurant.

The food was very good. The problem was that we felt like the people at the table next to us were practically sitting on top of us. They are pushing too many people into the space. A very average dining experience overall.

Four of us were dining at Lucio's and our table was available when we arrived. The waiter was attentive to our needs, but not lingering around. The food was outstanding as were the sides. Personally I had the duck and my girlfriend the salmon. Both were cooked to perfection, as were the sides accompanying the meal. Being able to bring your on bottle is an added benefit to a very welcoming restaurant experience. Would I go again....absolutely, I had been there before!

We had reservations as did most everyone else. The computer was down and the scramble to please and seat everyone had begun. The wonderful wait staff handled it the best they could and worked so hard to seat and satisfy all patrons. Good job, guys.
There was little interruption with ordering and getting the food. Everyone we were seated by in the restaurant seemed to be just happy to be there, as did our party of 4.
As usual, it was all good and thanks to the wait staff who remained calm (with effort) :), we all were happy. Thanks again, y'all, it's always a pleasure to dine at Lucio's.

We had the calamari, goat cheese salad, filet mignon, and sesame tuna. Everything was delicious but the entrees were truly the star of the show. Both meals were cooked perfectly and we ate every bite! One item I can't get over was the wasabi "mashed" potatoes that came with the tuna. I've never had anything like that before and it was the perfect combination.

I would expect better service from such a small restaurant. The waiter was hard to get a hold of, didn't really check in with us or ask if we needed anything throughout the meal. We ended up flagging down other waiters to order dessert and get more bread. We said yes when the waiter offered to uncork our bottle, not realizing that watching the waiter struggle with our cork for a few minutes would result in an $8 "cork service". In summary, the food was great, the dessert was great, not the best service, but it could have just been an off night for the waiter. This place is nice, but I think there are other great restaurants that offer food of the same caliber at lower prices. Oh and if you do go, remember to BYOCorkscrew too.

We were there for Valentines Dinner at 5:30. Love this place for three major reasons...

1- food is excellent and reasonably priced.
2- Great service (our waiter, Melvin, is always great)!
3- You can bring your own wine!!!

Definitely will be coming back over and over again.

Wonderful dining experience at Lucio's. We shared the crab cake, kale salad and airline chicken. While the BYOB was tempting, the wine list also had interesting options. So we left the wine at home and enjoyed the Gigondas..a great value. Service was on point. We will add Lucio's to our rotation!
