Visited on a Saturday night with my wife. Service was friendly and attentive. Restaurant was beautiful and comfortable. Tuna tartar, mussels, and veal shank were delicious. Only two critical pieces of feedback: 1) Prices on open table are very out of date/their website menu page is broken 2) short rib entree was a bit over cooked/tough. We’ll still visit again despite those two things.

Overall experience was excellent. Only complaint was fish was not super fresh, albeit perfectly cooked. Everything else was spot on. Will definitely dine here again - looking forward to it.

You have to try the Thai Chilli Calimari.. Phenomenal! Ask for Tom as your server, he was on point, knowledgeable and welcoming. Definitely referring this place to everyone I know.

The prices are a bit high but understandable due to the pandemic. It would be nice to see prices come down a bit when (if) dining out returns to more normal levels. Maybe a future discount for current frequent customers.

Service was speedy but servers were disinterested. Bread, soup and potatoes were cold. Server laughed!!! Other food was mediocre. Price was expected yet food was far from worth it.

Went early right after work. The bar had patrons but there were only two other tables with people eating. The drinks were good but the food was another thing. Both dishes, the filet mignon and braised short ribs, were bland and almost tasteless. The sides were also lackluster. The mashed potatoes were extremely dry and the grilled asparagus were just okay.

Great atmosphere with very pleasant surroundings.

Some food was great (Thai calamari; sea bass) and other dishes just okay ( lobster bisque and ravioli) bananas foster was a miss.

That said, staff was great and we had a wonderful evening

We have been to Lukas' Seafood Grille many times and that says a lot in itself. Why go back if you don't enjoy excellent food, service and ambiance. Lukas' never fails to deliver and it is an exellent restaurant for any occasion.

I had seen previous reviews that were either very good or very bad so we had to see for ourselves and took a chance. My wife and I were scoping out this place prior to her mother's upcoming birthday as a possible option for dinner. This restaurant was very good in all respects except it was a little pricey, but in line with other upscale steakhouses I have been to. The service was attentive. We were directed to a bar area in the back with high-top tables but asked to be seated in the regular dining room and we were immediately accommodated. Food was very good - lobster bisque quite tasty, but not a lot of lobster chunks. Filet mignon was cooked perfectly with a "Mediterranean" seasoning. Onion rings were crisp and not greasy. Chilean seabass was well prepared and delicious. A basket of bread came with only one pat of butter - had to ask for more. Lava cake was a little small when shared, a little dry, but tasty. Ambiance was nice with appropriate background noise. Fine print on the check revealed that they add a service charge of approx 3% to your bill if you use a credit card. Overall, a good experience. Not as good as Roots in my mind, but I would go back.

Lukas’ Seafood & Grille is one of our new favorite local restaurants. Love the menu and all of the choices. Excellent service (Daniel recommended an appetizer for me that was out of this world - it was the tuna carpaccio.) If you can believe it, we ate at Lukas’ on Friday AND Saturday night this past weekend.

Ordered a drink and was brought the wrong one - charge remained on receipt. Work being done in the facility that was loud. Food was very, very good. Just might have been a bad mid-week day.
