Excellent meal. Can’t believe I am just now coming here. Delicious oysters and tuna tartare as starters and then mouth watering grilled Bronzino and veal chop as entrees. As soon as we saw the dessert list, there was no question that the bananas foster had our name on it. So good. We will be back for sure.

Service and Food Outstanding! Would definitely recommend to family and friends. There were 5 of us and nobody walked away disappointed. Service was good. Had to wait a bit for our food but they are short on staff.

Our server at Luka’s was just outstanding. We dined outside which means we were right next to parking. To my surprise that was not distracting. Food prices were all over the map. They had a steakhouse menu where all items were a la carte and expensive. They offered excellent salads options. They offered Italian entrees. My friend enjoyed her lobster ravioli. They offered choices such as the scallop and shrimp with corn and mushroom risotto. . Again excellent. All food was excellently prepared. I don’t think I could dine indoors at Lukas. It was very busy and loud at 5 pm! They obviously do a great business. Good for them - wide variety, excellent preparation, our server was excellent. Cocktails were well prepared.

Overall it was a very good experience. Sat in their relatively new enclosed patio. Beautiful. Staff was very attentive. Had crab cakes, and lobster ravioli which were excellent. Wanted the whole Bronzino but they were out of it. Ordered a bone in rib eye and it was a bit tough. Overall I do recommend the restaurant. Reasonable wine list and some innovative cocktails.
There are a number of other things on the menu I would like to try.

Four of the five meals were excellent to very good, but my wife’s risotto was tepid and not well seasoned (though the shrimp and scallops on top were very good). We really liked the ambiance, and the staff was attentive. We will absolutely give them another go

The poor service we experienced this visit (we’ve been several times before) seemed to be a result of untrained servers. The restaurant wasn’t crowded, servers and assistants were roaming around but failed to bring the basics, even after requests were made and reminders given. Two of the four entrees arrived and had to make two requests for the other meals, which showed up 10 minutes after the 2nd request.
Food seemed ok but my salmon (ordered medium) was literally raw. Sent it back but appetite was already lost.
Hope this review helps what seemed to be a nice additional the neighborhood get their staff better trained. My intent was only to see them thrive.

The food in the restaurant is not bad and the service seems average. No one introduced the menu, and the used tableware was not removed in time.

Great meal. Great service. My husband got his “standby” meal. So much, he’s having it for dinner tonight (short ribs and mashed potatoes snd creamed spinach). I tried something new. Eggplant double appetizer order for entree. Really good. Having same thing tonight (leftover night). Great mixed drink…Paloma (with casamigos Blanca). All so yummy!

Calamari fried and in my fra diavolo was overcooked , chewy and fishy. Not sure if fresh. Wife's salmon overcooked. Daughter had seafood crepes were above average. You decide the value- $140 ,plus tip for 3 people. My seafood fra diavolo had a 2-3 inch "lobster" slipper tail, 1 medium size shrimp. 1 medium size Sea Scallop, a few clams and mussels not over but in a pool of broth where there was a little linguine!

We go to Luka's often. They had installed plexiglass panels between tables inside during Covid but last night they were taken down. The result was that it was very noisy inside and hard to hear. They should consider leaving them up permanently as the noise was greatly reduced with them and you felt like you were at a table by yourselves. Food was good, it always is!

Always a great meal. We’re lucky to live close and pop in often. Great short ribs and mashed potatoes and creamed spinach for my meat snd potatoes hubby. I got the seared ahi tuna on a bed of crab and avocado. Sooooobeautifully presented with wasabi and extra ginger (as I requested). And garnished with a beautiful blue and purple orchid!
Can’t wait to have the leftover tonight!
