While Luke’s seems to be a must while in NOLA, we will most likely not be back. The atmosphere is great but the food is mediocre for the price you’re paying. I wish we had a set waiter/waitress for consistency but this was not the case. Temperature on gumbo and etouffee were on the lukewarm side vs hot. Over all it was good but will if we visit again, it will be for drinks only.
The seafood was excellent.
Great food and drinks. Service was also great, will return
Good choice for brunch.
Food is good but overpriced. There are plenty of other places in New Orleans to get good seafood and at an affordable price.
Reunion with friends in New Orleans!
Great food. Really noisy but would go again in a heartbeat.
The food is delicious and served quickly and professionally. Not the best place for the hard of hearing, however. It is loud.
We love to eat at Luke’s every time we are in NOLA!!
Gumbo was lukewarm and overly salty to conceal lack of flavor. Mussels were also lukewarm and I’m guessing the excessive quantity was intended to distract one from the bland seasoning. Lighting reminded me of a hospital surgery room - way, way too bright. Service was sporadic, and only one person was attentive. Another had noticeable “body odor “, which was quite unpleasant. Never again.
To be fair, I ate at Luke twice, one breakfast and one dinner. Breakfast was amazing, great food, great service. When I returned for dinner is where I feel they lost me a little bit. They had assigned 3 servers to work as a team to take care of me. This led to either them checking in way too frequently, or forgetting I exist at all. I had to ask 3 times for extra dressing, and finally received it 20 minutes later. Frustrating when trying to enjoy a salad. The breakfast food was amazing, the dinner food was just okay. I wasn’t blown away by the salad or crawfish flatbread. Will return for breakfast but no other meal.
The happy hour at LUKE make us more than happy, the raw oyster with the good price must try! We will happy to be back!
We’ve been to Luke multiple times. Let me start with the food was incredible. We will give it another chance because of that. The service was not. I had to ask 3 times for cocktail sauce for our oysters - we never got it. The table of two next to us (I could touch him without leaning over) was so loud we couldn’t enjoy our time at dinner. The one thing that I gave the 3 stars for is the service. We had to ask over and over for refills of tea and ketchup for our burgers. When I asked for ketchup to go for our half eaten dinner - we were told they only had two left in the entire restaurant and it had to last them until tomorrow. I’m not talking a full bottle of ketchup - I’m talking about the small to go ketchup (mini to go bottles) that after spending $130 on 2 hamburgers and appetizers I expected them to send it home with us.
The food was very good. Like most places now service a little slow due to employee shortage but all were friendly and helpful.
Great food and awesome atmosphere. I would go back next time we are in NOLA!
Wonderful brunch and great service from Jasmine!
Overall poor we won’t be back
Ordered drinks immediately, and then food. Food came while we continued to wait for our drinks. Had to ask twice. Eventually drinks came after food was almost gone. My wife ordered a simple glass of Prosecco and I ordered one of “their” menu cocktails. So not sure why the huge delay!
Our service was poor. After we got our food, the server never came back to check on us. We were never asked for a drink refill. Additionally, the back corner they had us sitting in was filthy/dusty. When we brought these concerns to the managers attention, we received an insincere apology. He also stated that the dust came from the linens of the napkins as if that’s a justifiable reason to have your guests seated in an area that is dusty. I will not be returning to Luke or recommending it to anyone.
This was the best visit and experience of a last minute reservation for brunch. We will make sure to visit here every time we visit NOLA.! Plus it is kid friendly which is a plus.
A lovely brunch with a lovely friend! Top notch food and wonderful service! You can’t go wrong with brunch at Luke!
Absolutely amazing. My fiancé already wants to go back! We went for his birthday and they even gave him a free desert ❤️ It was so sweet!
Simply an outstanding New Orleans restaurant. Service is professional and first class. Meals are rich with flavor and cocktails are pretty good! Today I tried the crawfish étouffée, and this is a great dish.
I went for brunch on my bachelorette trip and it was amazing!
Food was great and quick, staff was always close
amazing breakfast... large portions... great coffee ... attentive staff
I decided to come here with my husband after a good friend's recommendation. Unfortunately, I am very disappointed from my overall experience.
I ordered the Pâté of Louisiana Rabbit & Chicken Livers, and it did not have all the truffles as seen on many photos on help (I had four with mine, whereas most, if not all, had six truffles/assortments). In addition, I did NOT receive the bread either. I asked the waiter if any of the truffles and/or the bread was missing, and he rudely said, "Why would you trust any of the pictures on Yelp? You definitely shouldn't. We change the menu all the time, you have to know that." However, he did get the bread for my husband and I after.
We also ordered "BBQ" P&J Oysters, Specialty Oysters and Citrus Cured Gulf Tuna Tartare. The food tasted great, but the portions of the Citrus Cured Gulf Tuna Tartare were disappointing. It was almost like an appetizer instead.
In addition, the waitress would forget to get the refills of our drinks that we requested (water and Diet Coke) several times throughout the night, to the point where we had to keep reminding her and eventually another waiter.
Overall, I would not come here again. The service could greatly improved, and I wish I got the name of the waiter to file a formal complaint to the manager.
There was only one receptionist. She was very busy. It took a long time to get orders .
Good food and cocktails. The BBQ Oysters and Crab Dip were really good. The Shrimp and Grits was good, but I didn't really like the texture of one of the sausages in the dish.
Definitely not what I expected. They are way understaffed. I get that they are just getting back but it took over 45 min to place a drink and appetizer order. It then took over an hour to get a drink. I think it would be good if they were properly staffed but I was very disappointed. Crab dip good but burger under seasoned and mussels overcooked.
Excellent service and crew, we are working on hosting our wedding in their venue along with HILTON Hotel.
Mrs Taaffe is a GEM and we loved spending the day at Lukes
We had a great meal with nice sized portions. The menu was small but good. Service was pretty slow at times but the place was packed.
Service very slow. I do realized it is hard to get good help these days, however we were left to ourselves for over 20 minutes, before even a beverage order. Crouque monsieor was cold, not appetizing at all.
Visited for breakfast and the service was spotty. I wasn't really sure who was supposed to be taking care of me. Likewise biscuits came w/breakfast but no butter, honey or toppings (?). Then it took forever to get the check and get it settled. Unusual as I visit here often for their Happy Hour when it is quite busy. They were not busy at breakfast at all.
The way a restaurant should be
When we back to New Orleans we will visit again.
If there was a six starts rating this place would get it from us.
Celebrated our Anniversary there. The food was great. Service excellent will definitely be back
Always a great meal...the raw bar was exceptionally tasty this trip and the fried soft shell entree was a great twist on a south Louisiana classic meal. Missed the steak but the boys loved their burgers! Love this place and always a great meal
Enjoyed an amazing dinner at Luke! Best crawfish bisque in New Orleans, hands down. Excellent service, incredible food. Will definitely be back soon. 😁
Very noisy. We celebrated our anniversary, but had to scream to be heard across the table. Not so intimate.
