I eat mostly vegan and I LOVE that Lucky Robot has a variety of dishes for me to choose from. I try to take anyone who visits me in Austin to eat here. 10/10
Excellent, amazing, delicious. Highly recommend!!
I enjoy going to Lucky Robot so much, however, overall experience seems to be inconsistent. For example I can go there one day out of the week and the food seems more fresh than the last time, the server more cheerful.. then the next time I go the food isn’t as pleasant or ‘fresh’ as the last time and so on. The happy hour menu is nice and big though and I love the atmosphere and decor!
This is quickly becoming my favorite place in town. The food is delicious and beautifully plated, the prices are more than fair, and the staff is so genuinely wonderful.
Amazing !!!!! Omg will not disappoint. Sit inside for the ambiance. Great service from dani
The Farmbot was amazing! They definitely have yummy veggie stuff for veg heads out there :)
slow service, set a short time limit on our table, denied alcoholic beverage - claimed ID was expired when it was good through the date we were dining on, and guest was well over 21 years old. Super frustrating just to get a simple drink. Will not be back.
Lucky Robot never disappoints. I like their updated menu and cleanliness. I had the pork buns, atomic salmon roll, and hira hira paired with a fruity sake. They were all beyond delicious! This finicky eater was doing the happy dance.
Everyone at Lucky Robot was extremely accommodating especially when we wanted to switch our reservation to indoor seating. Very nice and generous. We really enjoyed our time there. Love the ambience
I went for an omelette I saw on Instagram and it was better than I could have imagined. Awesome place. Fun people.
Amazing food. Friendly staff. Still keeping clean with the pandemic.
Food was really good and the atmosphere was so gorgeous we'll def come back
Everything was great. Loved the art throughout the place. Our waiter made great suggestions. Food was well presented and tasted great. Would definitely dine here again.
overall, pretty meh. My wife and I came here on a Monday night and were seated outside. This was the only sushi place nearby that had a table available at a reasonable time, so we decided to try it. Between the piped music from the restaurant and the sound of motorcycles screaming up and down congress avenue in first gear (when did that become a thing?), it's pretty loud and not a particularly pleasant place to dine. The service was good, friendly and attentive. appetizers (fried brusells and seaweed salad) were delicious. Rolls were fine but I guess i'm not really a fan of the dry-aged fish thing. Some decent wine would have helped, but the wine list is very limited. We tried some sake but neither of us liked it. We're not sake drinkers, though, so this isn't a criticism of the restaurant.
It wasn't a bad experience but neither of us thought it would be worth coming back.
Food was delicious! Great service. I recommend 100% and will go back for sure!
My favorite vegan Japanese food in the city. Our server even started off by asking us about allergies/dietary restrictions then ran me through all the vegan options. The space is also very cool with changing ceiling art installations. Such a great experience overall!
Friendly staff, food was excellent, had Mandarin Oolong tea that was delicious. Mimosa was great too. Parking is only drawback.
Wonderful experience the moment walking in from the door. Nice staff and great sushi!
This spot is really cute. The ambience is 10/10! However, the service was awful. Our server never really came to check in on us and when we asked for recommendations she didn't seem like she wanted to give us any details or suggestions. I feel like service is 50% of what you get when you dine out so that was really disappointing. Secondly, the food was just okay. I would come back for the sushi, but probably not for the hot plates.
Sat us quickly, not very crowded (good social distancing?). Food is amazing - we had the omelette and sashimi dishes for brunch.
Definitely one of the top places in town! The food is delicious and innovative, and the staff is top notch! 10/10 would recommend!
Awesome service and location! Was a tad bit disappointed with my rolls for the price. The tofu and spinach dumplings are absolutely to die for!
Loved it, will definitely go back again. They ambiance is lovely, the food selection is sustainable (good for the planet), and everything tasted great.
The food was delicious. I had the Japanese Pancake from the brunch menu and will be back to eat it again. My husband had sushi and loved it too. Cute decor, and friendly knowledgeable wait staff too.
Date lunch on a Sunday evening. Food was good and the service was fantastic!
It was great!
Came here for Saturday brunch with a group of friends and it was amazing! Perfect for sharing/trying a little bit of everything and the brunch drink specials cant be beat
Such a great experience! The server was very knowledgeable and asked about my dietary restrictions and made good recommendations. The sake is amazing and has the cutest interior.
Great Asian place, My favorite, the Soco Bowl
Delicious sushi, friendly service, beautiful decor. 👍👍
Our experience at Lucky Robot was beyond all expectations!! Service was absolutely spectacular, more than we expected. Food was amazing, as we had our Waitress order for us. They even brought us a free roll to try on the house! Could not have asked for more. Exceptional!
Leah has waited on us the two times that we’ve dined here. She gives amazing service and is super knowledgeable of the menu!
Disappointed about the Happy Hour food. The place is dope, service is great.. but ultimately, the food didn’t taste very good. We didn’t taste the sushi since it was not part of HH, so can’t give an opinion on it.
Went there for my Wife’s birthday. This place is amazing! Passes my expectations and has an amazing vibe! Will be coming back for date nights.
food was amazing. so were the drinks + the service. we will absolutely be back !
We went to Lucky Robot to celebrate my niece’s 16th birthday. The atmosphere and food were wonderful. The waitstaff was spectacular.
Great job by the whole team. Very inspiring meal
Billed as the first restaurant in Austin to serve aged fish Lucky Robot left me with an uneven impression. I tried all three of their aged fish. Barrel Fish, Amadai, and Spanish Mackerel. Unfortunately each of them was completely covered in either lemon zest or lemon juice. No way to taste any "umami" flavors that was suppose to come from aging fish. My favorite of the night was a sake maki 2.0 from their happy hour menu.
I would come here for their sakura picnic boxes to go. They are the actually the highlight of Lucky Robot. Beautifully presented for a great impression.
Went for the first time for HH: was not a huge fan of their HH wings, cashew cheese was very good and price for bottles of sake. I would recommend their cold tastings. I also did not try any of their sashimi/nigiri but I would go back to try them.
Food not so good for the price
