    A group of college friends came and hung out for several days. It was wonderful and I scheduled several restaurants. Luke was fabulous! The only reason I didn’t give outstanding remarks across the board is because our waiter was not the best. His helper, Kristen, was responsive and tremendous. The food is worth the trip!

    Luke was a great place for brunch! I was with a friend and her 2 year old, and the maitre’d was very helpful in seating us at a table that worked for us. The food was delicious - between us we had the croqué monsieur, the vegetarian omelette, and the roasted brussel sprouts. The waiters did their best to make sure we were taken care of, and the restaurant was busy! I’d come back here for lunch or dinner.

    The reception by the hostess was dreadful. We clearly interrupted a conversation between 3 of them and they best they could be was very very surly. Not a good start. The service was very mechanical in approach..several different waiters… and after more than 45 minutes we hadn't got our main course despite later arrivals already having been served.l When the food did arrive, the small portion wasn't very warm at all which was disappointing because it tasted excellent. A manager attended and said all the right things but nevertheless no real attempt was made to satisfy a customer having had a poor experience.

    It has been a while since we were at Luke and previous dining experiences were better than this one. Food was just okay and it was way to noisy. No longer my scene. There are restaurants in Nola that probably offer better value.

    We had not been to Luke in a long while. We were there for Father’s Day (2022). When the entrees came out my husband was missing his. Our waiter came by and said he was sorry and told us it would be out soon. It took them a long time to bring it out. By this time we were all finished with our meal. Then we ordered dessert. It took them 30 minutes to bring it out. Again our waiter apologized. He said he had let the kitchen and his manager know about the delay. Apparently the kitchen was backed up. That was no excuse for our waiter not to refill our drinks. He never came by to refill our water glasses or beverages. We also had coffee and my husband asked for a second cup which he never got. The service was atrocious. The one person we were celebrating didn’t get treated right. How very sad, that Luke is no longer what it use to be. I don’t think we will come back.

    Was disappointed to learn that there was a different breakfast and brunch menu. We also were confused because you don’t have a specific waiter but that wasn’t explained when we were seated and it was sometimes difficult to get table service. The food was ok, not sure I would visit again.
