Went there before a Saints game. Restaurant was very noisy, as expected. Staff was very friendly and attentive. I eat the fried oyster salad on most every visit. It did not disappoint. The raw oysters were plump and juicy. Very nice!

Consistently great New Orleans cuisine, extra value during 3-6pm happy hour. Outstanding raw oysters and gumbo. One of the city’s best French 75 cocktails.

Arrived a few minutes early for the reservation. There was a huge group of people waiting in a small reception area. It took 15 min to make it to the front desk. Once there we needed to wait another 10 min for a table. Once we sat down, service was super slow. I give them a pass due to being short staffed and the server was responsible for so many tables. Oysters were great. Wine list small but had a few good values. I would love to go back again. It is hoped the staff shortages will correct soon.

Would not go back. Service and servers were sloppy. Entree served not hot. Thank took back and brought it back 2 min later… French fries re-fried and mussels were maybe microwaved…

It was not a pleasant experience.

We will definitely be back! The food was delicious, but the service.... the service was outstanding! With so many restaurants being short-staffed these days, you can often feel the stress in the room. Not at Luke. Luke is not only well-staffed, everyone there is friendly and seems genuinely happy that patrons are there to dine. As for the food, we started with fried oysters. They were fresh and full of flavor. The must-have entree is the swordfish with seasonal squash and sage oil. Perfection! *kisses fingertips and exclaims "Muah!"* We enjoyed the whole dining experience and look forward to going back.

The food and service were really good. Limited menu but everything done well. The noise level was very high when the restaurant was full. Definitely not the place for a romantic date night. Definitely, a place to go and enjoy really good food.

I picked this place because of the blue crab omelette on the menu BUT, blue crab is out of season so it wasn't available. I had to settle for shrimp. My oyster salad was delicious.

Brunch at Lukes was delicious! We enjoyed our mimosas to begin with and shared the warm and sweet cinnamon roll! YUM! The matzo ball soup was amazing! The fried oyster salad was the perfect size for brunch - the oysters were fried to a nice tenderness. The croque madame (with the fried egg) was delicious and a large portion for my husband to enjoy!

We chose Luke for Thanksgiving dinner. Our reservation was for 2:30 pm, and we were seated on time. Our waiter was friendly and provided good service initially. When the food arrived, however, it was barely warm, let alone hot. Not sure whether the problem was with the kitchen or whether the waiter wasn't on top of things. We sent the food back, and it came back somewhat warmer but still less than optimum temperature. The main dishes (turducken and pork shank) were good, but a couple of the sides were so-so, especially the dressing/stuffing. We chose the poached pear for dessert, and it was okay but the pear didn't seem to be ripe. During the latter part of our meal, the waiter wasn't as attentive, and we had to flag down another server at one point. Overall, we were somewhat disappointed with the experience.

Been there before. Looks like it’s mostly geared for tourists. Food was ok, not great. Service was spotty.
The usual French bread was hard and cold. They could do a better job with that. My fish was ok but nothing special. Swordfish only choice in New Orleans?? Really, with all the gulf fish available
