This was the first day they were open and the staff was amazing. They followed all cleaning and physical distancing protocol. Food was amazing and was so quick. We loved Luke’s in the past and love them more now. Great job to the Luke team!

Fun atmosphere and decent food. I actually liked the limited menu. Food was good, not great, but it was a great room. I would go back.

I have avoided this restaurant for a few years because it had declined so far. Recently decided to give it another chance, which was a mistake. The skillet chicken was undercooked and cool inside with flabby skin. Also had the bisque which was unimpressive. Worst it was a fifty dollar LUNCH.

Slow wait staff, who were too cool to deliver drinks, check, etc. in timely fashion. Entrees took too long. Bad table by the door. Hostess was far too “candid,” and had already given away a table that was my reservation for six. Waiters too busy talking with other staff. Food was good, albeit low value (smaller portions). Too bad for Luke. You blew it.

Sorely disappointed. Have dined there many times. This is by far the worst experience we have had. Richie rich our server was great, and only saving grace of our experience. The kitchen and rest of staff failed miserably. Had to send food back twice. Hamburger was first overcooked then second try after 20 minutes was raw.

This is the second trip to New Orleans that we finished up with Brunch at Luke. Again, we had a wonderful time. The menu is very creative and with six people we had lots of options. The most memorable item we shared was Hash Browns with crawfish. One of the best items we had in our 5 day trip. We all agreed that on our next trip we're coming back for lunch and or dinner.

Negatives were not very friendly hostess (seemed put out) and inattentive server (restaurant was not busy). Had to seek someone else out for drink refills. But food was great, would go back for that reason.

Had a fabulous time over a few days at Luke's going through many items on the menu that were as divine as the other. The Happy Hour serving half off French 75s and 0.75 oysters are not to be missed!

Hostess was rude from start, sat at table 30 min before waiter came to table for drink order (that would be the only drinks we got the 3hrs there). Food came out wrong - out of 8 meals 1 was correct. Appetizer came out with food, we cleared our own table to make room for food- waiter never returned to check in-apologize- nothing. He was there waiting on others so no clue what happened. Finally went to bar for drink refill and manager to get our bill to leave since we were there 3 hours. Left more than half the food on plates because it was overcooked or not what we ordered. Horrible experience and will not be back. Too many other delicious restaurants with great service to waste time and money at Luke’s.
