    Once again, great service & great food. Skiff Bay oysters had good size, salinity & texture. I’d put their seafood gumbo up against any other, not only from a flavor aspect but also from the amount of seafood, sausage & okra in it. If you’re a fan of Brussels Sprouts, they have really good ones. My only disappointment was that the Schnitzel seems to have been taken off of the menu (hopefully not permanently). Bar is well stocked & cocktail selection is good. It’s hard to just nail down one absolute favorite place in NOLA, but if i could only have one, this is it.

    I had the oysters and escargot. They were delicious. This is my second time at Luke’s and had the shrimp and grits again and it is still great. My wife had the duck and was wonderful. The dark chocolate cake was great. I have been to New Orleans twice and Luke is a must go. Food and service are great. Everyone is friendly.

    I’m glad I went with Julian’s recommendation to try the braised lamb shoulder for the entree, and I also really enjoyed the black velvet cocktail he recommended after. The service was excellent all around, and I look forward to coming back again soon

    Excellent last meal in NOLA. We were a bit tired after a busy and fun week and decided to try this place close to our hotel. Great choice. Went for the gumbo but liked all the food. Oysters were great and the horseradish sauce was the most potent I have ever had. The side dish of Brussels sprouts was also pretty fabulous. Fun place and excellent service.

    We thought we would try the Sunday Brunch menu here at Luke and it was just OK. I had the ham and cheese sandwich with fries and it was loaded with ham and cheese but it was not very tasty. My friend had the fried chicken and waffles and the waffles were soggy but the chicken was good. The girls both got the fried oyster salad and they enjoyed them. It's a little too pricey for us when the food in mediocre

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Luke! The Smoked Trout Dip was a delicious starter. The Bone Marrow & Escargot was 10/10 as well. We also had the Luke Burger and a side of the Luke Salad which were good. Our waiter was very friendly, but somewhat busy. We loved the atmosphere for lunch as well.

    The food was great but the service was so bad, rude, and unprofessional. The server (his name is Julian W) who served us had an impatient face all the time especially after he found we didn’t want to order any drinks and more expensive dishes. When he came to clean our table, he did it impatiently and some thing fell off from the dish to our phone and hands. He just went away without saying any apologies. We came to have a happy dinner, but so sad to get such service. We checked Google review and found other customers also have same complaints. Hope the manager of this restaurant can train the servers well in the future. Such service doesn’t match the food and the restaurant.

    Enjoyed our meal at Luke, came for dinner but just ended up getting apps and share plates for our meals. Happy hour is amazing, particularly if you love 1/2 price raw oysters and craft cocktails! Service could have been a better especially since there were 2 servers per table.

    I gave it four stars because I am hoping that the poor service we received was one off. Our server was rude and inconsiderate. When we simply asked for the bill to be split and itemized for reimbursement purposes, he was annoyed and had an attitude. For the restaurant otherwise, food was great and ambience very nice.

    Our party of 9 was originally going to be seated upstairs, but we had one person who was unable to take the stairs due to mobility issues. The staff quickly rectified that and seated us downstairs with a very short wait. They also had a high chair for the youngest family member in attendance without having to be asked for one. Food and drinks were great, but service really shone through today!!

    Food was amazing but staff seemed to be rushing us out. My husband asked for another cocktail, server didn’t ask me if I would like another. Immediately brought our check out, didn’t ask if we wanted dessert and just decided to put his drink in a to go cup even though we had planned to have another couple drinks and dessert. They barely came check on us we had to ask for another drink when ours was empty, they never asked. The food was cooked perfectly and came out quickly. If it wasn’t for the service of the TWO people in charge of our table, it would have been a great experience.
