Overall a great place to eat. The anticipation of coming here for me was large because my parents have spoken so highly of Luke. When we arrived we were sat in a “broom closet” there was absolutely no reason a table should have been shoved next to the waiter station with used towels and brooms the service staff had to almost touch the table to squeeze by. I did ask to be moved but not everyone would have asked and their experience would have been horrific. After being moved it took about 10 min for someone to even acknowledge we were there as if the staff was inconvenience by us. The server and food saved our experience however I will not to try this restaurant again with so many other options in the city.

Luke is one of our favorite spots in Nola. We eat at Luke on almost every trip to New Orleans. The food is always amazing.

How do you kill it on red beans and rice with fried chicken? Just go to Luke and find out. The chicken was perfectly crispy and not oily at all and the the beans were loaded with smoked pork ham hock. Combined this with an order of crispy Brussels sprouts done and seasoned perfectly. We went for lunch and was so good and filling we ended up not eating dinner!

The service terrible. We had to flag someone down to get help. Asked for a drink...finally on the 3rd try, I got a Diet Coke. The food wasn’t worth the price.

Luke is a great restaurant near the French Quarter in New Orleans. It may be a little less known since it's in downtown, but give it a shot next time you're looking for something new for brunch or dinner and you wont be disappointed!

Our server Lillian was awesome, great service and personality. Her co-server was rude and was very attentive to every table but ours. His name Jesse, if it was not for him this restaurant would have gotten a 5 star review. It’s amazing how one person can bring down a business.

My group was there for brunch and we all ordered a different entree and everything was excellent. The jalapeño cheese grits were amazing! The restaurant was clean, staff and patrons were masked, very enjoyable experience!

Alway fine service, the best burgers (hand-formed, perfectly seasoned, with an exquisite char) in the city (and we’ve had almost all of them), and absolutely delicious fries. We will continue our search, but whatever is tasted will have to be compared to Luke.
