Luke Ratings and Reviews
Amazing, amazing service. I wish I could remember our main waiter's name, he was incredibly entertaining and the perfect host. Our table was by the chef's kitchen (love) and more intimate and quiet than the front of the restaurant (thank you Luke and open table). We had champagne and raw oysters, flammkuchen, gumbo, coffee & chocolate torte and peppermint ice cream. Everything was exceptional, even (and especially) the coffee. Everyone made our visit memorable and wonderful. What a wonderful staff and perfect restaurant.
Having spent a week in New Orleans 21 years ago, my wife and I wanted to see what had changed since then --- especially after Katrina.
The first time i was here speaking at a "Presentation" for an hour, and "we" spent the rest of the week as tourists, walking our collective butts off seeing everything.
This time we were doing a "foodie tour" based on the "Best I ever Ate" series --- plus checking out some restaurants owned by our favorite chef's.
We finished our restaurant tour tonight, and after 6 well known/highly rated restaurants, the meals we had at Luke were the possibly the best meal we've ever had in our 67 / 70 years of life and 46 year marriage.
We purposely spent the week eating "New Orleans" cuisine, and the "Shrimp and Crab Etouffee" I had was Perfection Over Rice!
We had been to Luke once before some years ago and while the food was good it din not leave a lasting impression. his time was different. We were blown away but the excellent cuisine. We will definitely return. In fact it became a good reason to book the Hilton St Charles which is a fine hotel but we had never stayed there before. I was just one of so many fine hotels in new orleans. Luke is the deciding factor. I highly recommend it and the hotel for a memorable New Orleans experience.
I was surprised. The waiters were great and attentive. I liked the sign and the tiles.
Beyond that, the bread seemed like it was from a Subway -- a soft, boring roll.
The Brussels sprouts were the best thing -- but still not great.
"Giant Shrimp" with grits was disappointing. The oxymoronic Giant Shrimp would at best be "Medium" in the real world. The cheese and grits felt like they were fighting each other, and the sauce was lame.
The bread pudding had the consistency of rubber -- no texture, just kind of tough.
My friend had the bisque and the fried oyster salad -- he was not impressed by either.
The grocery store muffaletta I had the next day was far more impressive. I wish it had been better.
Just okay. No dishes stood out to us. Ribeye steak was decent as was french onion soup. Shrimp, pasta, etc meh. Very friendly and personable wait staff made it all better. If this were in a midwest airport I’d give 4 stars. But for a downtown New Orleans place associated with John Besh it was very underwhelming.
My family of four didn’t have plans for Thanksgiving dinner having just arrived to New Orleans Thanksgiving late morning. We were glad we found a place for holiday dinner. Lüke is in downtown financial district. It’s not as fancy as we hoped it would be. The food was alright. Stuff is very friendly. They did brought entree right before appetizers but gumbo was hot enough so it was alright.
We have made Luke a thanksgiving tradition for the last few years...this year the menue did not disappoint. We dined on tur-ducken, pork rib, both with yummy stuffings and for dessert we had the most amazing version of s’mores with a butterscotch ice cream....so, so good! Luke Is a wonderful dining experience for local New Orleans flavor, atmosphere and cocktails, we love it!
Luke has an interesting menu and anyone could find something to eat. We didn't have oysters (which is the big thing there) but our food was very good. A bit spicy. I had the Duck Duck Rice and it was really good! After an appetizer, the three of us shared one dessert. Decent size portions.
The food was average quality at above average prices. The service was lacking, despite having 2 servers, we still managed to find ourselves without water and our food took much longer than it should. The place was not overly busy, either, so that wasn’t a contributing factor. Food was lukewarm by the time it arrived at our table. Other small items that typically wouldn’t be an issue, but when combined with everything, made it an undesirable experience (server spilling wine, forgetting appetizer plates, etc.)
We decided to give the Luke happy hour a try to get our fill of oysters and we were not disappointed. The fresh oysters were humongous and the fried ones were crispy with some spice to them. On to dinner where we had the shrimp and grits and the Brussel sprouts with the citrus cured gulf tuna tartar. The food was excellent with the Brussel sprouts being the winner. The only reason there aren't four stars is that the service was a bit spotty with there being several table visits at once and then none for a long while. Regardless, I recommend this restaurant especially if you love oysters or Brussel sprouts.
We were in town celebrating our anniversary and very happy to try one of John Besh's restaurants. The service we received was a touch sporadic - it was quite a long time after being seated before we ever saw our waiter or were offered drinks.
That aside, the food was all top notch. The crispy brussel sprouts appetizer was good, the ricotta gnocchi though were quite stellar, one of the highlights of the meal . The actual standout of the entire meal was the crab & corn bisque. Absolutely amazing, so rich and deep and layered. The best "seafood bisque" style soup I may have ever tasted. Something so simple, but done so perfect.
For the main course my wife had the duck-duck rice - crispy rice with duck confit and roast duck, and it was likewise quite special, and I now have been tasked with learning to cook something similar. I had the shrimp & crab etoufee which was probably the low point of the meal. It wasn't a bad dish per-se ... it was ... "fine". But it was not really reminiscent of an actual etoufee. It reminded one more of simply a cajun flavoured pasta dish, which is ok. There was nothing wrong. But it just didn't satisfy.
Overall it was still a great meal, and next time we're in town we will definitely be back.
Great service, great food. Everything we ordered was delicious, and everything else I saw other people eating all looked fantastic. Great atmosphere. Had alot of family's dining around us, it was a comfortable place to be. Went for my wife's birthday, and I included that information in the special request section when making a reservation- the server brought us both champagne at the beginning of our meal and brought a complimentary dessert at the end for her birthday. I would suggest making a reservation- as other people walking in were told they would have to wait for over an hour
Had an amazing dinner at Luke on Saturday night. Get your reservations in before 4pm because they book up fast.
Shrimp Cocktail—awesome, fresh. Tail and shell on so must be removed.
Etoufee—-awesome! Highly recommend.
Shrimp & Grits—creamy & delicious + andouille...yum!
Cocktail—the one with pomegranate in it. Light & tasty
Birthday dessert: best Chocolate cake ever!!
