Sorry, this is a great spot, the food is great and if you want to go with someone you do not want to talk to, it is even better. But, if you want to have a chat, maintain a discussion with you guests, then Lucy's is becoming a place to avoid. Lucy's needs to invest in some sort of sound absorbing panels. The highest rating above is Energetic, but really is almost painful.
There is an impact - we have guests coming to stay with us in June, we would love to "show off" our favourite restaurant, but we won't be coming because we do not want to have a conversation that requires each of us repeating ourselves.
Please make the investment. We want to for the food, but we don't want to go deaf getting it. Thanks.
