This was our first time to dine at Lucio’s and was for Valentines date night. We will definitely be back. Lucio’s was everything that we were looking for and exceeded our expectations. Our server Melvin was terrific!

The menu selection is somewhat limited but they do a very nice job. The food is straightforward and it's a great place because of the corkeage. We enjoyed the prix fix Valentine's dinner squash soup beef carpaccio lamb chop. Seabsss. The salad was a bit boring but topped off with a delicious bread pudding and creme brûlée.

We have been to Lucio's several times and went back for Valentine's Day. They had a prix fixe meal but did not put on the website in advance what it was, so we took a chance. The food was good but not what we would have normally picked from the menu. The service was good but with a number of missteps that you would not expect from here (red wine served in a white wine glass, corkage fee added to bill when it was included in the prix fixe charge). Hopefully this was just a slightly off night. Everything was still good but not a Lucio's usual high standards.

I've enjoyed several meals at Lucio's. However tonight's(Valentines day) meal was poorly prepared with very limited choices. Service was extremely unorganized and slow. The outdoor ambiance made the rest tolerable.

Had a great dinner last night! We sat down and it actually took a while for our server to get to us, however, he apologized and gave us dessert on the House even though we said it was no big deal! Everything was very good. We’ll definitely be back!

The waiter was fantastic. There were 4 of us and 4 bottles of wine, but he didn’t rush us. It was a Friday night and fairly busy, but he let us take our time and enjoy our night.

The special was a fish dish (fluke) that was prepared very healthily, which is a big must for my husband. In addition to being healthy, it apparently tasted amazing!

The only negative was that I ordered the hangar steak. The menu described it and it sounded fantastic, but when it got to me, all I could smell was onions, lots and lots of onions. Fine if you like onions, but I personally hate them, especially sautéed onions when the smell just overwhelms everything else. The waiter handled it beautifully. I was able to scrape them off and push them far enough away that the smell wasn’t so overpowering. My real complaint was why the menu wouldn’t specify it came smothered in onions. The waiter said he would make sure the chef knew and that he would “warn” any future customers of the onions.

All in all a great experience and we will definitely be back.

Great for a nice meal pre-theater on a weeknight. Attentive service, solid menu and wine list. Burrata/tomato salad was lovely - the kitchen divided it for us. We both had the duck breast - hearty serving and delicious. Would have liked more of the yummy puree alongside.
Thanks and see you soon.

Outstanding restaurant with a limited menu but all good. We used a special Groupon deal and were able to try the deal meal and additional items. The BYOB feature makes this restaurant a great place for we love excellent wine and we take ours with us. They charge a small fee for corkage but it is very, very reasonable. Give Lucio's a try, you should not be sorry.

Melvin was our server and he is a gem! Very hospitable and knowledgeable of the menu. My husband wasn’t sure if he wanted to order his lamb medium or medium well. Melvin gave him the option to order medium and if it was too rare for him, he’d gladly have the chef fire it again. Very nice waiter and the owner is also a nice man! We will be back!

We had a group of 4 to celebrate a birthday. Service was attentive and not intrusive. Food was outstanding with special items featured. We will be back in a few weeks to again celebrate a birthday. They allow BYOB with a corkage fee so bring your favorite wine, etc. They have a reasonable wine and beer menu.

We had the Rack of Lamb and the Duck and it was fabulous! We are big fans of the French bistro-like cusine! It is hard to find a place like this in Houston! The patio is the coolest, we arrived early, but later in the night the turned on the heaters and the romantic vibe made our night very special! Totally recommended!

While we do not live in Houston we visit our children their several times each year. Lucio's is always a restaurant we visit when we are in town. The food is exceptional, we like the byob option and the staff is always professional and friendly. The tuna is the best in town and they do a great job on all their offerings.

This was our first visit to Lucio's - but will certainly not be our last. While the menu is somewhat limited, everything that we ordered was delicious and expertly prepared. The fact that you can bring your own wine is icing on the cake. In addition, Melvin - our waiter - was a big hit. Very attentive without being overbearing. His suggestions were spot on and his friendly demeanor very welcoming.

This is our second visit to this restaurant and it didn’t disappoint. You can take your own wine so this is a plus. Corkage fee is a bargain at $8.00. The food was excellent. The appetizer we had was the spinach dip with homemade pita chips which was to die for. Our main entrees were the pork loin & pork belly and my wife had the smoked duck breast plus a side of butternut squash risotto. The entrees were delicious, the duck was perfectly cooked. The dessert was the brioche bread pudding which we shared which was out of this world. Will definitely be back. This is a neighborhood gem.
